48. וְאַף עַל גַּב שֶׁהָאֵל הַזֶּה בֵּאַרְנוּ, הַמַּלְכוּת הַקְּדוֹשָׁה הַזּוֹ לוֹקַחַת שֵׁם כְּמוֹ הַכֹּל, וְהַטּוֹב וְהַחֶסֶד שֶׁל הָעוֹלָם הַזֶּה, (בֵּאַרְנוּ בְּמָקוֹם אַחֵר עֶלְיוֹן, וְהוּא טוֹב וְחֶסֶד שֶׁל הָעוֹלָם, הַמַּלְכוּת הַקְּדוֹשָׁה הַזּוֹ לוֹקַחַת שֵׁם כְּמוֹ שֶׁלְּמַעְלָה) וּמִשּׁוּם זֶה נִקְרֵאת אֵל, אֶלָּא שֶׁהוּא זוֹעֵם בְּכָל יוֹם, שֶׁנִּמְצָא בּוֹ דִין.
49. וּבֹא רְאֵה, אֵל שַׁדַּי בֵּאַרְנוּ שֶׁבּוֹ הֲנָאַת הָעוֹלָם, וְהוּא אָמַר לָעוֹלָם דַּי. שֶׁהֲרֵי הָאֵל זֶה הוּא שֶׁמִּזְדַּוֵּג עִמּוֹ, וּמִשּׁוּם כָּךְ נִקְרָא אֵל שַׁדַּי, אֵל שֶׁל שַׁדַּי. וְעַל זֶה מָה אֶקֹּב לֹא קַבֹּה אֵל. מִשּׁוּם כָּךְ, כְּמוֹ שֶׁמִּתְעוֹרֵר הָרֹאשׁ – כָּךְ מִתְעוֹרֵר הַתַּחְתּוֹן.
Continued from previous DZ
Balaam used all the lower levels that comes down from the left of Malchut. He was looking at the lowest level that is the aspect of ‘tail’ to its the higher and that revealed to him what was in the upper levels. He could tell if the there’s judgment in the world or not. We would use these opportunities to inflict his evil eyes on people.
This is why Balaam knew he couldn’t curse the Israelites when there’s no judgment open on them.
“מָה אֶקֹּב, לֹא קַבֹּה אֵל; וּמָה אֶזְעֹם, לֹא זָעַם יְהוָה”
“How shall I curse whom God has not cursed? And how can I denounce whom YHVH has not express unger?”
It’s an important spiritual principle to studyץ In Kabbalah it’s called the ‘language of the branches’, שפת הענפים. It’s called this way because from the branch you can tell what kind of tree and type of roots it has.
Everything below has a spiritual roots that are the causes of the final outcome, ‘the branch’. A human, or ‘a speaker’ in the words of the Zohar is a reflection of complex spiritual system above, It has endless expressions but in forms of head, body, legs and energy.
Each part of the body represents different spiritual force that we can learn about it by its name and functions.
If a person comes to you and start a conversation about food, fashion, politics or sports, you know instantly what’s on his mind. The expressed words (Malchut) has root in the person’s thoughts (Keter and Chokmah).
Symbols in dreams are higher level of ‘branches’ and a spiritual person with deep understanding of the ‘branches’ can interpret them.
Balaam wanted to see expressions on judgment in the world so he can use that energy to draw and maximize on it to bring harm to the Israelites but the protection of the Holy Tabernacle and the arrangement of the camps of the Israelites prevented him from fulfilling his evil thoughts.
When we connect to seeds of positivity we can manifest positive. If we connect to the Zohar we draw light that can manifest in our lives in everything that is good for us.
I’d like to add here that there’s a great judgment energy covers the entire world. Even good spiritual people easily falls into expressing it with words and actions that increase the aspect of separation and conflicts in the world. I see good friends on Facebook continue spreading the agenda of evil, spreading greater negativity that case separation between people and good friends. So may friendship broke because of accepting judgments as real.
I suggest to share only positive things on Social networks. If You feel like reacting to someone’s post with ‘anti’, even if you are 100% righteous with your intention and thoughts, it would be better to open the Zohar and read few paragraphs. Instead of creating separation you bring light that blocks the negative ‘branch’ from manifesting in the world.
