Daily Zohar # 2842 – Ha'azinu – “in my flesh I shall see God”
The next three paragraphs belong to DZ 2547. I skipped them last year because of Yom Kippur and now added to have the study would be complete with this study. It’s a little bit long but reveal important secrets of Creation.
“מָה רַבּוּ מַעֲשֶׂיךָ יְהוָה כֻּלָּם בְּחָכְמָה עָשִׂיתָ מָלְאָה הָאָרֶץ קִנְיָנֶךָ”
“How manifold are Thy works, YHVH! In wisdom hast Thou made them all; the earth is full of Thy creatures”
There are two kinds of Chokmah in the world of Atzilut. The sefira of Chokmah of the ten Sefirot and Chokmah of the left side that is the root of the 32 paths that created the world of Malchut. The first kind of Chokmah is the force and the essence of the light of Chokmah. The Chokmah from the Left is the revelation of the Light of Chokmah in Binah that is the creative force of the world below. This light is the continuation of the Light from the Chokmah of the concealed Keter that is the head of Arich Anpin.
This video explains the three heads of Keter (Originally published for 2539)
The beard of the face of Arich Anpin is called ‘Mazal’ ‘מזל’, a word that means ‘luck’ but it also means ‘drip’ or ‘flow’, relating to the flow of light from the Endless. The hair of A”A (Arich Anpin) are channels for the light that comes from Keter and supply the forces to create the upper and lower worlds including the angels. The nourishment, sustenance of all worlds depend on the ‘mazal’ from A”A.
Zeir Anpin and Malchut that are the aspects of Heaven and Earth also depend on it. This precious ‘mazal’ is also called ‘מזלא’,’mazala’ that means ‘success’. Because the hair is channels it includes aspects of judgment but in this case it helps the channels hold to the root in Keter and draw the light to the four worlds of Atzilut, B’riah, Yetzirah and Asiah below. Without the channels from the beard of A”A, Zeir Anpin and Malchut wouldn’t be able to come to existence.
On Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur we have a connection to the highest level of Keter. We use this opportunity during the Kedusha of Keter (in the Musaf) to ask one of three wishes, righteous children, sustenance and divine spirit. The entire year depends on these two events and that means a connection to the Keter of Arich Anpin.
Similar opportunity we have on Shabbat morning during the Kedusha of Keter. Also during third meal of Shabbat we can study Zohar and make personal wishes. The latter two events affect the week ahead while Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur affect the entire year.
The thirteen attributes of mercy depend on the beard of A”A. They flow to Zeir Anpin but only nine of them revealed on that level. They sweeten the judgments on the lower levels.
The entire creation has the aspect of the human body.
“וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים, נַעֲשֶׂה אָדָם בְּצַלְמֵנוּ כִּדְמוּתֵנוּ”
“And God said: ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness”
“וּמִבְּשָׂרִי אֶחֱזֶה אֱלוֹהַּ”
“in my flesh I shall see God,”
The ‘mazala’ spreads equally from the head to the navel in the middle of the torso. The entire body is divided to three parts related to the three letters of ‘צלם’, ‘image’ that created us. The ‘ם’ spreads from the mouth to the chest, the ‘ל’ from the chest to the navel and the ‘ץ’ is from the navel down. The hair from the head can spread only up to the chest because the ‘ל’ occupies the space below and have different purposes.
The three heads of Keter revealed in the light of the beard. They connect to the roots and spread to reveal the letters of the יהוה YHVH name. These letters support the other letters on lower levels. The YHVH name must connect to the roots of the beard in order to draw the light of the supernal Keter. This connection is represented by the little line above the letter י Y of the name. For that reason the ‘י’, ‘Y’ is the only letter that does not touch the base line of the letters.
The connection to the thirteen attributes begins with twice the name YHVH (Exodus 34:6). The first one connects to Arich Anpin and the second to Zeir Anpin.
The concealed Keter, ‘Atika Kadisha’ is not mentioned in the Torah because it’s the beginning of all beginnings. The Torah mentions one ‘head’, which is second Keter and all that below it.
