Daily Zohar # 2467 – Chukat – If all the seas were ink
“וְזָרַח הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ, וּבָא הַשָּׁמֶשׁ; וְאֶל-מְקוֹמוֹ–שׁוֹאֵף זוֹרֵחַ הוּא, שָׁם”
“הוֹלֵךְ, אֶל-דָּרוֹם, וְסוֹבֵב, אֶל-צָפוֹן; סוֹבֵב סֹבֵב הוֹלֵךְ הָרוּחַ, וְעַל-סְבִיבֹתָיו שָׁב הָרוּחַ”
“Also, the sun rises and the sun sets; And hastening to its place it rises there again.”
“Blowing toward the south, Then turning toward the north, The wind continues swirling along; And on its circular courses the wind returns.”
The sun rises in the east (Tiferet), sets in the west (Yessod), turn toward south (Chessed, tropic of Capricorn), then toward North (Gevurah, tropic of Cancer).
The ‘wind’ is the aspect of Malchut that goes in circular courses, which is the aspect of connecting to the three patriarchs, Abraham (Right), Isaac (Left) and Jacob (Center).
The Light reveled in Malchut when we connect to the ‘Sun’ (Light of Binah) using the the patriarchs (three columns) as channels.
The Zohar tells us that King Solomon, who wrote Ecclesiastes, concealed great wisdom in his words. Most people consider Ecclesiastes as written by unknown person because they can not see the inner wisdom and secrets revealed by him.
Every word in the 24 books of the Bible is sacred and conceals great wisdom.
Rabbi Yochanan ben Zakkai (lived during the second Temple) was quoted to sya that if all the seas were ink and all the trees were pens and the sky and earth were paper and all the people scribes, it wouldn’t be enough to write all that he learned from his teacher, the famous rabbi Hillel.
In older time, especially when the Holy Temples was active, the wisdom of the Bible on many levels was easily accessible. We are blessed to have the Zohar and great commentators like Rabbi Ashlag and others to help us understand few levels.
