Daily Zohar # 1971 – Toldot – Like attracts like
“ וַיֶּאֱהַב יִצְחָק אֶת-עֵשָׂו, כִּי-צַיִד בְּפִיו; וְרִבְקָה, אֹהֶבֶת אֶת-יַעֲקֹב.”
“and Isaac loved Esau, for his hunting is in his mouth; and Rebekah is loving Jacob.”
The Zohar raises the question why Isaac didn’t love Jacob even when knowing that he will continue his line fruitfully and bring the 12 tribes.
The answer given to this question is that everyone is attracted to his own kind. Isaac was of the Left column Gevurah and judgment and Esau was the same. They had affinity on the Left column and that equality and the aspect of sharing the same spiritual energy creates love.
Love, ‘אהבה’, has the same numerical value, 13, of the word ‘one’, ‘אחד’. When we are in oneness with another person we form a bond and a love connection. You love a person because he’s like you.
The law of attraction says: Like Attracts Like, and as the Zohar teaches us, it happens because the two or the group share the same energy.
The name YHVH, יהוה has the numerical value of 26, which is twice 13. All the precepts are made for us to create affinity with the name and draw the specific Light of the precept into our lives.
The main precept is to love YHVH with ‘awe’. Our Love 13, creates the affinity with the name that is twice love (26) and allows flow of light. 13+13 = 26
The ways to love YHVH is by studying all aspect of the name. The study of Zohar, the Tree of Life and deep Kabbalah is what connects us to the name and benefits us.
One aspect of the the law of attraction means group separation. Left with left, Right with Right. The balance comes when we unify the Left and the Right. When you go to a Kabbalah class, you feel one with the others in the class because at that moment you share some aspects of unity with same desire to learn, connect and maybe support each other. When you leave the class and the group the previous attraction disappears and you go to your personal close friends.
Some people get attracted to a specific teacher, congregation etc. Some may lose the affinity they previously had and a separation process begins. That is why people move between groups and organizations.
The leader of the Daily Zohar is the Zohar and Rabbi Shimon. I may write the Zohar commentary but the ideas explained here come from the Zohar. I don’t select and deliver what people want. I simply share the Zohar paragraph sequence and the teaching and support of Rabbi Ashlag and other great kabbalists, the delivered teachings are pure from personal agendas. Everything is about the love of YHVH and revealing his name.
This approach makes the Daily Zohar the virtual center for all students of Kabbalah. It’s designed to inspire unity among students of Kabbalah—regardless of affiliation—as we come together to connect to the ultimate wisdom. As you read any one of the posts on the site, there may be another person on the other side of the globe simultaneously doing the same thing. This mutual act creates and reinforces the consciousness of unity that is sorely lacking and is desperately needed in today’s world. Through the consciousness of unity during your spiritual studies, you become one with all the others around the world. On the spiritual level it creates oneness that attracts the Light and benefits each individual on the daily Zohar study. We are all children of God and he sees us as one. It’s the ultimate love to go above the limitation of the physical realm. All the souls of the DZ readers see and study the same text. It creates a huge vessel and draws great Light. This is the solution to remove pain and suffering from the world and reveal a reality that is filled with Light.
