Daily Zohar # 2087 – Shemini – Connect or disconnect
37. שָׁנִינוּ, בְּאוֹתוֹ הַיּוֹם הָיְתָה שִׂמְחָתָהּ שֶׁל כְּנֶסֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל לְהִקָּשֵׁר בְּקֶשֶׁר הָאֱמוּנָה בְּכָל הַקְּשָׁרִים הַקְּדוֹשִׁים, שֶׁהֲרֵי קְטֹרֶת קוֹשֶׁרֶת הַכֹּל כְּאֶחָד, וּמִשּׁוּם כָּךְ נִקְרֵאת קְטֹרֶת. וְהֵם בָּאוּ וְקָשְׁרוּ אֶת כָּל אוֹתָם הָאֲחֵרִים כְּאֶחָד, וְהִשְׁאִירוּ אוֹתָהּ בַּחוּץ, שֶׁלֹּא קָשְׁרוּ אוֹתָהּ עִמָּם. וְקָשְׁרוּ דָּבָר אַחֵר. וּמִשּׁוּם כָּךְ הִזְהִיר אַחַר כָּךְ אֶת הַכֹּהֲנִים, שֶׁכָּתוּב (ויקרא טז) בְּזֹאת יָבֹא אַהֲרֹן אֶל הַקֹּדֶשׁ.

On the eighth day the Holy Tabernacle was connected to its spiritual roots in Binah. The priests and the Israelites cleansed themselves and all levels were in joy because everything was in complete peace and harmony.
The Zohar reveals that because of that, the negative side couldn’t enter the camp of the Israelites.
On that day the two sons of Aaron entered the holy Tabernacle for un-authorized service. They corrupted the perfect state and the anger of YHVH was revealed and took their lives.
“וַיִּקְחוּ בְנֵי-אַהֲרֹן נָדָב וַאֲבִיהוּא אִישׁ מַחְתָּתוֹ, וַיִּתְּנוּ בָהֵן אֵשׁ, וַיָּשִׂימוּ עָלֶיהָ, קְטֹרֶת; וַיַּקְרִיבוּ לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, אֵשׁ זָרָה–אֲשֶׁר לֹא צִוָּה, אֹתָם”
“Now Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took their respective fire-pans, and after putting fire in them, placed incense on it and offered strange fire before the LORD, which He had not commanded them”
Even though their consciousness was pure their act was flawed because they didn’t connect Malchut, they connected the entire lower level including the other side.
To protect the connection of the high priest in the Holy God gave new instruction to Aaron;
“בְּזֹאת יָבֹא אַהֲרֹן, אֶל-הַקֹּדֶשׁ:‘
“With this Aaron will enter into the Holy”
“This” is the aspect of Malchut and that excludes the other side. (Read more about ‘this’ here: https://dailyzohar.com/daily-zohar-1853/ )
Many Kabbalah students discover the spiritual tools that Kabbalah offers but most of them use the tools in a wrong way. They may draw judgment instead of the Light of fulfillment that they desire so much. Rabbis and teachers don’t provide proper guidance because people build great hope from using the tools. Some use the ‘tools’ for selfish reasons and that brings worst outcome. If the Light one asks for is not for sharing of for survival then there is no aspect of Chassadim and the Light could easily turn to judgment.
Using names probably have placebo effect for most people who don’t use it properly. Only those who follow the path of righteousness and purify themselves can truly benefit from the tools.
Please ask questions below because I truly want people to understand this to attract Light, not judgments.
