Daily Zohar # 2168 – Korach – The one and Holy one
Continued from previous DZ
When God came to create man, the Torah made him ‘flawed’ to express the attributes of YHVH as “Slow to anger and abundant in goodness”.
When man was revealed in the world, he was radiating with great Light and all creatures of the world were with fear and awe about him. Man was the purpose of Creation and his existence created joy on all worlds.
Negative spirits and demons from the other side wanted to have a body and existence in this world but the purity of Adam blocked them from achieving that.
The Levites represent the Left column in Adam. The flaws created in the world by the negative spirits and demons were corrected by the Levites. They connected the right and left columns together to bring balance and completion.
The Zohar reveals to us that during the travels of the Israelites in the wilderness, the Levites carried the tools of the Holy tabernacle in their hands. All other things related to the structure of the Holy Tabernacle were carried on wagons.
The holy tools used by the priests are the aspect of the Right and Chessed. The Levites corrected any flaw by the fact that they carried the holy tools with their hands.
The world was created from one single point, Keter, with no aspect of ‘many’ there was only ‘One’ and oneness. This is the state that we always should seek, which is to be one with the Light of the Creator. Then we can draw Light and blessings into our lives.
The Levites from the Left held the Holy, which is Right with their hands, unifying the two into one, connecting to Keter what was already in Binah.
Another important fact is that the Levites were not allowed to see the holy items. The Priests covered them before the Levites could carry them. If they were to see the Holy, they would die.
“וְלֹא-יָבֹאוּ לִרְאוֹת כְּבַלַּע אֶת-הַקֹּדֶשׁ, וָמֵתוּ”
“but they shall not go in to see the holy objects even for a moment, or they will die.”
From the study of this Zohar we can understand that the revelation of the Light of Keter that the Levites bring with their hands can not be seen because the Light of Keter revealed in Malchut without concealment would cancel any light (soul) that is next to it.
