Daily Zohar # 2117 – Kedoshim – Give honor to
Continued from previous DZ
The Zohar explains that Binah gave ‘honor’ to Chokmah and executed each command of “And God said let there be…” immediately as it said at the end of each command “ וַיְהִי-כֵן” “and it was so”.
The 32 times the name ‘God’ ‘אֱלֹהִים’ is mentioned in the 10 ‘commands’ of Creation created 32 paths of Light that now exist in Binah because of its role in executing the command.
The word ‘Honor’, ‘כָּבוֹד’, is numerically 32 and for us it represents connection to the Binah that is the creative force of the Creation process. ‘Honor’ is the aspect of connection to the source.
In Simchat Torah we sing “תנו כבוד לתורה”, “Give ‘honor’ to the Torah” to invite everyone to connect to the Torah on the special day when we finish the reading of the Torah and connect immediately to its beginning.
“וּבְהֵיכָלוֹ– כֻּלּוֹ, אֹמֵר כָּבוֹד”
“And in His temple everything says, “Glory! (Honor)””
“בָּרוּךְ כְּבוֹד-יְהוָה, מִמְּקוֹמוֹ”
“Blessed be the glory (honor) of YHVH from its place!”
When we are asked to do something that reveals Light we should do it immediately in order to get the maximum from the Light we channel by doing the action.
