Daily Zohar # 2856 – Noah – Open your eyes and ears to see immortality
The three levels of the soul, Nefesh, Ruach and Neshama connects in the central column that is a strong hold against the other-side (Sitra Achra). The levels of Chokmah and Binah are too high to come down. Chokmah is expressed in the eyes and Binah in the ears. They are passive senses and without them the world around us is mute and dark. Da’at that is the Sefirah that is formed when Chokmah and Binah unified to send light to the lower levels. It is the aspect of ‘voice’ that goes down to the heart and lungs and expressed as sound coming out of the mouth. The voice of Chokmah and Binah comes through Da’at and produce sound can break the strongest and darkest Klipot.
The wicked people and those who are not able to connect the right and the left are considered deaf and blinds.
“פֶּה-לָהֶם, וְלֹא יְדַבֵּרוּ; עֵינַיִם לָהֶם, וְלֹא יִרְאוּ”
“אָזְנַיִם לָהֶם, וְלֹא יִשְׁמָעוּ; אַף לָהֶם, וְלֹא יְרִיחוּן”
“They have mouths, but do not speak; eyes, but do not see.”
“They have ears, but do not hear; noses, but do not smell.”
Our soul is the driving force of our body and life. Our senses and especially the ability to see and hear depends on the our spiritual level. If our Chokmah and binah are on a high level we can see and hear the truth in world around us. As spiritual people who study Zohar and Kabbalah we are able to see and understand people above the average. Most people see with their eyes but blind to the truth on different levels. A righteous person can see beyond the ‘images’ in front of him and abel to hear the truth from the spoken words.
People speak from their minds (Chokmah and Binah). When we listen to or reads someone’s words, we can determine the level of Chokmah and Binah of that person.
Don’t assume that if you read Zohar and study Kabbalah for years, you automatically have the ability to read and see the truth in everything around you. The negative side may use our ego to mislead us into all kinds of false truths. Rabbi Akiva warned his students to be careful with what they see even when they are making spiritual ascend. Not everything they see on the way up is absolute truth.
If you are righteous and believe that you have the ability to see truth then use it to help others, not to scold or patronize them.
Those who connects the right and the left to form the center that breaks the negative side are registered in the book of life that would be opened in the Final Redemption and the Resurrection when they would rise to immortality.
On those who let their souls away from the righteous ways it says;
“יִמָּחוּ, מִסֵּפֶר חַיִּים; וְעִם צַדִּיקִים, אַל-יִכָּתֵבוּ.”
“Let them be erased from the book of life and not be recorded with the righteous.”
