“חִדְלוּ לָכֶם מִן-הָאָדָם, אֲשֶׁר נְשָׁמָה בְּאַפּוֹ: כִּי-בַמֶּה נֶחְשָׁב, הוּא”
“Stop regarding man, whose Neshama is in his nostrils; For why should he be esteemed?”
The nose and its nostrils is the channel that God pushed in life into us, (Genesis 2:7) “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life”
Anger is energy that goes through the nose. The Hebrew word ‘אף’ is also a word that describes anger (Numbers 11:1 and many others).
Anger releases the life force out of the nose, where we receive and maintain life. An angry person is called a place of idol worship because when this light goes out, darkness takes place together with forces of the other-side.
We should stay away from all kind of idol worship to disconnect from the influence of the negative-side. An angry person becomes impure and to protect ourselves we need to stay away from him.
“אֱלֹהֵי מַסֵּכָה לֹא תַעֲשֶׂה לָּךְ”
“You are not to make molten gods (Mask) for yourselves.”
The ‘molten god’ is a representation of a negative force. A face of a an angry or evil person shows its negative side and we should avoid looking at them for our spiritual purity. That is why the verse state ‘for yourselves’, which means for our protection.
