Daily Zohar # 2337 – Vaera – A man of holy dust
“וָאֵרָא, אֶל-אַבְרָהָם אֶל-יִצְחָק וְאֶל-יַעֲקֹב–בְּאֵל שַׁדָּי; וּשְׁמִי יְהוָה, לֹא נוֹדַעְתִּי לָהֶם”
“I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as God Almighty, but by my name YHVH I did not make myself known to them.”
“אַשְׁרֵי אָדָם–לֹא יַחְשֹׁב יְהוָה לוֹ עָוֹן; וְאֵין בְּרוּחוֹ רְמִיָּה.”
“How blessed is the man to whom YHVH does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit!”
The Zohar tells us that there are many people who have blocked consciousness and don’t understand the world around them. When the Holy One Blessed be He, created the worlds, he created man in his own image and established a system to study the Torah and follow the ways of God.
The body of Adam was drawn from the ‘dust’, which is Malchut of the Holy Temple below but this ‘dust’ was ‘corrected’ with the light of Binah. The Holy Temple was a point of connection for the four directions of South, North, East and West, and the four elements of Nature, Fire, Wind, Water, Earth (dust).
The following DZ studies are on the four elements of nature and their different aspects.
