Daily Zohar # 2271 – Lech Lecha – Don’t lose your Abraham
39. עוֹד פָּתַח וְאָמַר, (שם לז) וְעַתָּה לֹא רָאוּ אוֹר בָּהִיר הוּא בַּשְּׁחָקִים וְרוּחַ עָבְרָה וַתְּטַהֲרֵם. וְעַתָּה לֹא רָאוּ אוֹר – מָתַי? בְּשָׁעָה שֶׁאָמַר הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא לְאַבְרָהָם לֶךְ לְךָ מֵאַרְצְךָ וּמִמּוֹלַדְתְּךָ וּמִבֵּית אָבִיךָ. בָּהִיר הוּא בַּשְּׁחָקִים – שֶׁרָצָה הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא לְהַדְבִּיק אֶת אַבְרָהָם בָּאוֹר הַהוּא שֶׁלְּמַעְלָה וּלְהָאִיר שָׁם.
40. וְרוּחַ עָבְרָה וַתְּטַהֲרֵם – שֶׁהֲרֵי אַחַר כָּךְ שָׁבוּ בִּתְשׁוּבָה תֶּרַח וְכָל בְּנֵי בֵיתוֹ [נ”א וְכָל בְּנֵי עִירוֹ.] בְּנֵי בֵיתוֹ [נ”א בְּנֵי עִירוֹ], שֶׁכָּתוּב וְאֶת הַנֶּפֶשׁ אֲשֶׁר עָשׂוּ בְחָרָן. תֶּרַח, שֶׁכָּתוּב וְאַתָּה תָבוֹא אֶל אֲבֹתֶיךָ בְּשָׁלוֹם וגו’.
Zohar Lech Lecha
“וְיִמָּנַע מֵרְשָׁעִים אוֹרָם; וּזְרוֹעַ רָמָה, תִּשָּׁבֵר.”
“From the wicked their light is withheld, and their raised arm will be broken .”
The Zohar reveals that ‘the wicked’ is Nimrod, the king of Ur and his generation. The ‘withheld light’ is Abraham who was a channel of light to the people. God sent Abraham away, disconnecting all his ties to the negative place and the people. They didn’t deserve to have such a great soul and light living among them.
‘Raised arm will be broken’ refers to those who trust and rely on their physical force. also to those who use their authority on people like king Nimrod who was known to break all his enemies.
We cannot rely on physical force or material wealth. Everything in existence is held in its place by the force of the Light. When the wicked push away the light they lose the force that gives their wealth existence. That is the aspect of ‘raised arm will be broken’.
When the people don’t deserve it, God takes away the righteous ones from among the people. Many great tzadikim left the world in recent years, leaving their communities with big holes to fill and long corrections process. People must have responsibility for their actions when the big light that was around them is now gone. When the people don’t do the work or seeking righteousness, the chaos in the world grows like we see nowadays.
The Zohar is our connection to Rabbi Shimon, who is the holiest of all Tzadikim.
The Daily Zohar provides tools for all people to connect spiritually, cleanse their souls and become righteous. The Daily Zohar study, the Unity Zohar and the Tzadikim list are at the top of the list. The Tzadikim site and app are great tools to connect to Tzadikim on their death anniversary, Hillula dates, and support us.
