‘desisting from your own ways, From seeking your own pleasure And speaking your own word’. This part of the verse suggests to us to honor the Shabbat as we honor and make efforts for a special guest. We refrain from doing on Shabbat the things we do on regular days. We refrain from talks that are not related to the holiness of Shabbat because unholy actions and words disconnect us from the Light of Shabbat.
Our words are vessels that draw and reveal light for positive or negative. Mundane talks on Shabbat create flaws in the holiness of the day and disconnect us from the Light of Binah.
During the weekdays we speak and create vessels to draw the necessary light for the desired actions. On Shabbat we don’t need to create vessels for the Light of Binah and we connect to it with the the sacred study of Torah and Zohar.
The less we talk on Shabbat the greater our connection to the Light of Binah. Shabbat is a great opportunity that we don’t have during the week. It’s the time that our refueling station is open and ready to give us what we need.
