Daily Zohar # 2286 – Chaye Sarah – Unformed body
40. אָמַר רַבִּי בּוֹ, לָמָּה? אָמַר לוֹ, בֹּא רְאֵה, כֻּלָּם שֶׁדָּמוּ לוֹ אוֹ בְּרֶמֶז שֶׁלּוֹ, לֹא מֵתוּ בְּמִיתַת נַפְשָׁם, וְכֻלָּם לָקוּ בְּאוֹתוֹ עִנְיָן מַמָּשׁ.בֹּא רְאֵה, אָמַר רַבִּי יְהוּדָה, דְּמוּתוֹ שֶׁל אָדָם הָרִאשׁוֹן וְיָפְיוֹ הָיָה כְּזֹהַר הָרָקִיעַ הָעֶלְיוֹן שֶׁעַל גַּבֵּי שְׁאָר הָרְקִיעִים, וּכְאוֹתוֹ הָאוֹר שֶׁגָּנַז הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא לַצַּדִּיקִים לָעוֹלָם הַבָּא. וְכָל אוֹתָם שֶׁהָיוּ רְמוּזִים בּוֹ מִדְּמוּתוֹ שֶׁל אָדָם הָרִאשׁוֹן, בּוֹ הֵם לָקוּ וּמֵתוּ.
Zohar Chaye Sarah
Continued from previous DZ
“גָּלְמִי רָאוּ עֵינֶיךָ וְעַל סִפְרְךָ כֻּלָּם יִכָּתֵבוּ יָמִים יֻצָּרוּ ולא [וְלוֹ] אֶחָד בָּהֶם.”
“Your eyes have seen my unformed body; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.”
The ‘unformed body’ from this verse that we started studying in previous DZ, is a body that lives without taking care of the soul it carries.
The Zohar reveals that Adam, the first created man, said these words after his sin. He was created on Friday and made the sin before receiving the additional soul of Shabbat.
Adam’s beauty and light were like the radiance of the highest sky in heavens. It was like the Light God concealed for the righteous in the world to come. For that reason, all men that were brought to life in Adam’s form died in ways other than natural death. The Zohar brings the example of King Saul and Samson. They had a some of Adam’s light and power and died by external force.
Even though we are all Israelites and parts of the soul of Adam, we do not share the special Light he had from the upper and concealed level. It is waiting for the righteous among us and we should make efforts to earn this Light for the world to come.
