Daily Zohar # 2099 – Metzora – How to become a high priest
Continued from previous DZ
As we studied previously, Aaron needed to come with the Shechina into the Holy of Holies in a perfect state and invite the king to come down for unification with his Queen, the Shechina.
The Holy Temple is the house where the unification of the King and Queen was happening. The Light that was revealed from their unification spread to the entire world.
If the vessel was not pure then the Light couldn’t come and the channel broke.
Aaron was known for his love and care for all people. He would make peace between people, couples and enemies. He was the ideal high priest and could draw Light as much as he wanted.
In Exodus 25:8 we read “and they will make me a Temple and I will dwell in them”.
Kabbalists explain that each person should treat himself as a vessel for Holy Temples. He needs to be in purity all the time so the Light can come and dwell inside of him.
History taught us that when there were corruptions among the priests in the Holy Temple the priest of that year who went into the Holy of Holies would die because of the impurity.
As individuals, we should become pure and act with purity and peace at all time, otherwise we can’t draw and reveal Light. If we come with selfish desires, we may draw judgments and lose everything.
We can be our own High Priest if we set a goal of becoming pure in every action that we do. Use our prayers as they are designed in plural form to express care and responsibility for each other. We should seek Peace, like Aaron and not war, Love and not hate. Choose unity (true unity) and not separation. With that type of self we can develop a great vessel with greater ability to connect and draw Light to ourselves and the world.
