Daily Zohar # 2308 – Vayeshev – Don’t make the idiot choice
Continued from previous DZ
“יְהוָה, צַדִּיק יִבְחָן: וְרָשָׁע, וְאֹהֵב חָמָס–שָׂנְאָה נַפְשׁוֹ.”
“YHVH tests the righteous; the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates.”
After the first Sin in the Garden of Eden we lost the state of immortality and have to go through the process of generations and reincarnations to correct our souls and come back to the state of oneness and unity as we were one as the soul of Adam.
The world was created with the freedom to choose, with cause and effect on every action, positive and negative. God wants to help us achieve the purity required to be included in the final process of the Redemption and Resurrection to Immortality.
The righteous people who wish to earn immortality are tested by God for their level of purity, and when they have issues God helps them by giving them a correction process that in most cases is painful and not easy.
To achieve higher level of soul the vessel of a person should be purer and that can be achieved only through a painful process that removes the desire for the self alone. That desire blocks the Light of higher level of soul from coming into the vessel.
The tests are always about the choice between desire for the self and immediate pleasure and the action of doing for others. The formula is simple but Rabbi Ashlag tells us that the way to achieve that high altruistic state is by following the precepts of the Torah with the study of the Zohar and Kabbalah.
The wicked are hated and ignored by God until they make the efforts to change their ways and follow the Torah. They are rewarded in this world for their good deeds, earning nothing toward the state of immortality.
Most people are idiots. They are focused on the immediate pleasures of this world and may fulfill their entire ‘bucket list’. These people have no future in the world to come.
Most people work hard for a month before they are rewarded with a temporary currency that ends sooner or later and has no value after their death. The righteous knows that his entire life is the process of earning the ultimate reward of immortality, living in a world that provides them with everything they ever want.
There will be different levels of state of existence in the world to come. The lower level of earning would be riches and unlimited pleasure of the new world with no negativity. The higher level will be having no lack of material things together with full control of mind over matter. Everything desired would be manifested immediately including teleportation and going above the force of gravity.
I am aware that the title may make some people feeling uncomfortable, especially new people in the study on the Daily Zohar. Everyday and every action is very important in the process of earning ‘credits’ toward the resurrection in the world to come. The true meaning of Kabbalah is to receive the highest Light possible and purify ourselves. If a student of Kabbalah is focused on his/her desires for pleasures and comfort in this world then he/she misses on the true purpose of life. The pleasure and comfort a student can achieve immediately is with the understanding of the process. It can be long and painful and the knowledge of its purpose makes it easy to bare and live with until the next process of elevating the soul to the next level.
The study of Zohar, especially on daily basis, purifies our souls and removes most of the pain from our personal process of correction. This is the goal and purpose of the DZ study and DZ projects.
I invite questions on this subject to help students understand the pain of this life and the reward of the next.
