Daily Zohar # 2016 – Vaera – The radiance of the Zohar
“וְהַמַּשְׂכִּלִים–יַזְהִרוּ, כְּזֹהַר הָרָקִיעַ; וּמַצְדִּיקֵי, הָרַבִּים, כַּכּוֹכָבִים, לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד”
“and the wise will shine like the radiance of heavens and those who lead people to righteousness like the stars forever and ever”
The Zohar explains that the radiance of heavens is Moses, who stands in the middle, which is Da’at. It is also Zeir Anpin that all its sefirot come together in the central column.
The central column is included from the right and left column. Its radiance is concealed and can’t be revealed in the upper levels. The Light of Da’at is big and brings Light to Malchut that doesn’t have light of its own.
The right column brings Light, the left is radiance of Chokmah that is called Zohar. The central column takes from both columns and shines as the color ארגמן, crimson.
Malchut reflects the above Light of Zeir Anpin that is the aspect of the sun.
The concealed Light is the aspect of the rays of the sun that are not seen until they are reflected from an object, which in our lesson, is Malchut.
The Light that Moses could channel from Da’at through the central column is yet to be revealed but the Zohar teaches us that we can go and get it by connecting ourselves as the aspect of Malchut. Malchut comes to the radiance/Zohar that is brought down from the upper levels. Coming to the Light reveals it because it’s a spiritual law.
