Daily Zohar # 2443 – Naso – It's in your heart and mind
Continued from previous DZ
“הַנִּסְתָּרֹת–לַיהוָה, אֱלֹהֵינוּ; וְהַנִּגְלֹת לָנוּ וּלְבָנֵינוּ, עַד-עוֹלָם–לַעֲשׂוֹת, אֶת-כָּל-דִּבְרֵי הַתּוֹרָה הַזֹּאת.”
“The concealed things belong to YHVH our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law.”
The ‘concealed’ are ‘Awe’ and ‘Love’ that are in the mind and heart. The physical brain that ‘hosts’ the mind is inside the head and the heart is inside the body. They are the aspects of the Y י (Chokmah) and the ה H (Binah) of the name.
The ‘revealed’ are the Torah, which is the aspect of the Vav ו(Zeir Anpin) of the name and the precepts is the aspect of the H (Malchut) of the name.
The study of Torah and following the precepts are seen on the outside.
God gave us eyes, ears and mouth to read and listen to the Torah. Our hands and legs created for us to follow the precepts.
People can’t tell if one follows the Torah with Awe and Love or not. It is known only to the individual and his Creator.
The Zohar ask why God created the nose and answers that it is the connection to life that was given to us to ‘fill’ us with the YHVH name that is the Tree of Life.
“וַיִּיצֶר יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים אֶת-הָאָדָם, עָפָר מִן-הָאֲדָמָה, וַיִּפַּח בְּאַפָּיו, נִשְׁמַת חַיִּים; וַיְהִי הָאָדָם, לְנֶפֶשׁ חַיָּה”
“Then YHVH God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”
