Daily Zohar # 2118 – Kedoshim – When would male and female be equal?
Continued from previous DZ
“אִישׁ אִמּוֹ וְאָבִיו תִּירָאוּ, וְאֶת-שַׁבְּתֹתַי תִּשְׁמֹרוּ: אֲנִי, יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם”
“Every one of you shall revere his mother and his father, and you shall keep my Sabbaths: I am YHVH your God.”
Every receiver needs to respect and ‘honor’ the giver. The verse starts by telling us to respect the mother and then the father. Everyone receives first from his mother and she should get the honor. The mother receives sustenance from the father and she needs to respect him. Mother is the aspect of the vessel and father is the connection to the Light and the source of sustenance.
In another place in the Torah, the Zohar tells us that the order of mother and father is reversed and explains that the precepts of “You shall do….” are the aspect of male that gives us Light from the upper level. In that case, male receives the ‘honor’ before the woman.
The precepts of “You shall not do…” are the aspect of female and she gets the ‘honor’ first.
It’s not about man and woman. It’s about vessel and the source of Light. When a Tzadik prays, he gives honor to every step in the prayer. He is considered a vessel and aspect of female. When we come to a Tzadik, asking for his support, we are the vessel and the Tzadik is the male.
Without the ‘respect’ we don’t have a spiritual connection and the Light can not pass to the vessel.
The aspect of male female and who is first to receive ‘honor’ will be no longer valid at the time of the Final Redemption because the Light will be available to all without the process of earning.
The secret is revealed in the following verses:
Please provide your explanation (aspect of male) or ask questions (aspect of female). You can be also both (!).
“וְהָיָה אוֹר-הַלְּבָנָה, כְּאוֹר הַחַמָּה, וְאוֹר הַחַמָּה יִהְיֶה שִׁבְעָתַיִם, כְּאוֹר שִׁבְעַת הַיָּמִים–בְּיוֹם, חֲבֹשׁ יְהוָה אֶת-שֶׁבֶר עַמּוֹ, וּמַחַץ מַכָּתוֹ, יִרְפָּא”
“The light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven days, on the day YHVH binds up the fracture of His people and heals the bruise He has inflicted.”
“וְהָיָה יְהוָה לְמֶלֶךְ, עַל-כָּל-הָאָרֶץ; בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, יִהְיֶה יְהוָה אֶחָד–וּשְׁמוֹ אֶחָד”
“And YHVH will be king over all the earth; in that day YHVH will be the only one, and His name the only one”
