Daily Zohar # 2695 – Tzav – Extra soul for 'animals'
Those who serve the wise Torah scholars are like the tools of service in the Holy Temple that were called ‘Holy’. Those who serve their Rav are like his body parts and are called Holy of Holies.
“וְנָתַתָּה אֶת-הַפָּרֹכֶת, תַּחַת הַקְּרָסִים, וְהֵבֵאתָ שָׁמָּה מִבֵּית לַפָּרֹכֶת, אֵת אֲרוֹן הָעֵדוּת; וְהִבְדִּילָה הַפָּרֹכֶת, לָכֶם, בֵּין הַקֹּדֶשׁ, וּבֵין קֹדֶשׁ הַקֳּדָשִׁים”
“You shall hang up the veil under the clasps, and shall bring in the ark of the testimony there within the veil; and the veil shall serve for you as a partition between the holy place and the holy of holies.”
The ‘veil’ that separates between the holy and the holy of holies is the aspect of the Angel Metat— that brings the students closer to the Torah Scholars.
The Torah Scholars accept the yoke of heaven and the nullification of the desire for the self and all kind of pleasures. His food is the Torah that nourishes the soul levels of Neshama, Ruach and Nefesh. These are the aspect of Kohen (right), Levite (Left) and Israel (Center). Also the letters YHV יהו of the YHVH name to represent Chokmah, Binah and Daat.
The Extra soul is the Nefesh and the aspect of Malchut.
The Torah include the holy name יוד-הא-ואו-הא.
“גַּם אֶת-זֶה לְעֻמַּת-זֶה, עָשָׂה הָאֱלֹהִים”
“God has made the one as parallel to the other ”
While the righteous side is nourished from the Torah and receive higher spiritual level, the animal side of us is nourished from bread, wine, meat and fruits.
The soul comes from the spiritual realms and is nourishment by the study of Torah, Zohar. The body was formed from material of this world and is the aspect of animal. We nourish it from the products of the material world. This is the parallel that God created.
The body supports the existence of the soul in order to maintain the flow of life force in the body.
When we feel more like body, animal, we should study to bring life into the body. In the broad aspect we are ‘body’ and in need to support the pure wise rabbis and scholars that draw life force to the world with the study of Zohar that reveals the extra soul levels in the Torah.
