Daily Zohar # 2831 – Ki Tetze – He has made the one as well as the other
124. וּכְמוֹ שֶׁיֵּשׁ שְׁנֵים עָשָׂר מַזָּלוֹת מִצַּד שֶׁל הַטּוֹב, כָּךְ יֵשׁ שְׁנֵים עָשָׂר מַזָּלוֹת מִצַּד הָרַע. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב (בראשית כה) שְׁנֵים עָשָׂר נְשִׂיאִם לְאֻמֹּתָם. שֶׁזֶּה לְעֻמַּת זֶה עָשָׂה הָאֱלֹהִים (קהלת ז), וְהָרְשָׁעִים הֵם אֲבִי אֲבוֹת הַטֻּמְאָה, שֶׁהֵם טְמֵא מֵת וְשֶׁרֶץ, שֶׁמְּטַמֵּא אֶת הָאָדָם מֵאֲוִירוֹ וּמִתּוֹכוֹ וּמִגַּבּוֹ. וַאֲפִלּוּ תּוֹךְ תּוֹכוֹ שֶׁל הַכֹּהֵן נִטְמָא בָהֶם. וְלָכֵן (ויקרא כא) [וְ]עַל כָּל נַפְשֹׁת מֵת לֹא יָבֹא. שֶׁרָשָׁע קָרוּי מֵת. וּהַמְּנוֹרָה הַקְּדוֹשָׁה, לְאָבִיו וּלְאִמּוֹ לֹא יִטַּמָּא.
Zohar Ki tetze
The mistress is the aspect of the Garden. The slave servant is the aspect of dirt and garbage from the side of the Erev Rav that comes to the Garden to grow seeds from the Tree of Knowledge Good and Bad. It’s idol worship that is called ‘foreign worship’, slave servant, Saturn, Lili-th, dirty garbage, feces mixed with all kind of disgust. The children of Esau and Ishmael are buried in it, connecting to the Erev Rav that get mixed in the Israelites, holding to their bone and flesh that cause them to be in impure state that is thrown like a bone to a dog.
“בְּיוֹם טוֹבָה הֱיֵה בְטוֹב וּבְיוֹם רָעָה רְאֵה גַּם אֶת זֶה לְעֻמַּת זֶה עָשָׂה הָאֱלֹהִים עַל דִּבְרַת שֶׁלֹּא יִמְצָא הָאָדָם אַחֲרָיו מְאוּמָה”
“In the day of prosperity be happy, But in the day of adversity consider– God has made the one as well as the other So that man will not discover anything that will be after him.”
There are 12 signs in the Zodiac wheel from the side of good and 12 from the bad side. The wicked are the sources of all impurities that is death and varmint. They contaminate anyone in their environment, including the air surrounding them. The wicked is call ‘dead’. The priests were instructed to stay away from dead to keep their purity and ability to channel the Light.
” וְעַל כָּל נַפְשֹׁת מֵת לֹא יָבֹא לְאָבִיו וּלְאִמּוֹ לֹא יִטַּמָּא”
“nor shall he approach any dead person, nor defile himself even for his father or his mother;”
This verse refers to the priest that is not allowed to come closer to any ‘death’ aspects to avoid transferring the impurity to his father and mother.
The Zohar study concludes with a statement saying that the holy candle, who is Rabbi Shimon, won’t impure his father and mother.
The deeper meaning of this is that a great light push away all aspects of ‘death’. We learned from Zohar Vayechi about the power of rabbi Shimon over the angel of death.
Like the priests we should avoid wicked people, idol worshipers and all negative actions because they have different aspects of death. If we come close to it, it contaminates our lives. The only protection we have to avoid getting close to ‘death’ situations is to study the Torah as we do with the Zohar.
