Daily Zohar # 2172 – Chukat – ‘Vote’ responsibly
37. וְלֹא הָיָה מַיִם לָעֵדָה, שֶׁהֲרֵי הִסְתַּלְּקָה הַבְּאֵר שֶׁלְּמַעְלָה וְשֶׁלְּמַטָּה, אַחַר כָּךְ נִשְׁבַּר הַיָּמִין, שֶׁכָּתוּב יֵאָסֵף אַהֲרֹן אֶל עַמָּיו. וְאַחַר כָּךְ נֶחְשַׁךְ הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ, שֶׁכָּתוּב (דברים לב) וּמֻת בָּהָר וְגוֹ’, וְהֵאָסֵף אֶל עַמֶּיךָ וְגוֹ’. הֲרֵי זְרוֹעַ יָמִין נִשְׁבְּרָה, וְהַגּוּף, שֶׁהוּא שֶׁמֶשׁ, נֶחְשַׁךְ.
38. וּבֹא וּרְאֵה, לֹא נִמְצָא דוֹר בָּעוֹלָם כְּמוֹ הַדּוֹר שֶׁעָמַד מֹשֶׁה בָּעוֹלָם, וְאַהֲרֹן וּמִרְיָם. וְאִם תֹּאמַר בִּימֵי שְׁלֹמֹה גַּם כָּךְ – לֹא! שֶׁהֲרֵי בִּימֵי שְׁלֹמֹה שָׁלְטָה הַלְּבָנָה, וְהַשֶּׁמֶשׁ הִתְכַּנְּסָה. וּבִימֵי מֹשֶׁה הִתְכַּנְּסָה הַלְּבָנָה וְשָׁלַט הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ .
Continued from previous DZ
When Miriam passed away, her support was removed from the Israelites. The well of water disappeared with her. The Zohar explains that with Miriam’s death, Malchut lost the connection to Zeir Anpin, the Right column became weak and the light in the world diminished.
“חָשַׁךְ הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ בְּצֵאתוֹ, וְיָרֵחַ לֹא-יַגִּיהַּ אוֹרוֹ”
“The sun will be dark when it rises And the moon will not shed its light.”
After Miriam’s death, Aaron, which is the aspect of Chessed of the Right Column died also. Moses was the aspect of Zeir Anpin because he had direct connection to YHVH.
The generation of Moses benefitted significantly from his presence. After Moses passed away, God took care of his ‘burial’, which was a process of concealing the Light from the world.
In previous DZ I wrote; “Many communities that lost their righteous leader are left in a weak and unstable spiritual state”.
SP commented “Very interesting Zion. Like a ship adrift! Can u expand on this? What are the dangers? How to change this situation?”
I have simple answers.
The dangers are about losing the soul. If a person follows a teacher, rabbi or any leader, blindly then if the leader is wrong then he loses his soul and any merit for the world to come.
Each one of us should take personal responsibility and ask questions to understand how and why. Everything must be based on the Torah and Zohar as it’s the highest level of teaching,
There’s a growing distance between the Light and the people. The world is getting darker because we lost many Tzadikim and those who inherited their position do not or can’t follow their righteous ways. I see it in the kabbalah Center, in Laitman’s organization, Chabad and others.
Stay with the organization that you feel most comfortable with but remember to take personal responsibility and follow the Torah and the Zohar, not some modern version of a rabbi, a teacher or a leader. In most cases, their goal is to make you happy and keep you ‘voting’ for their party.
