Daily Zohar # 2910 – Vayigash – Certainty is a bridge over obstacles
“וְנָהָרּ יֹצֵא מֵעֵדֶן לְהַשְׁקוֹת אֶת הַגָּן וּמִשָּׁם יִפָּרֵד וְהָיָה לְאַרְבָּעָה רָאשִׁים”
“Now a river flowed out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it divided and became four heads.”
The river is the Light from BInah and the Garden is Malchut.
‘and from there it divided and became four heads’ to tell us that this light spread to four directions that means that everyone in this world is nourished from that river.
‘distribute to the poor’ (Psalms 112:9) is Yessod, Tzadik, that draws light to the holy aspect of Malchut that is the Shechina. This light that Yessod draws from Chokmah and Chessed is a complete light of peace that sustain the world.
“עֵינֵי כֹל אֵלֶיךָ יְשַׂבֵּרוּ וְאַתָּה נוֹתֵן לָהֶם אֶת אָכְלָם בְּעִתּוֹ”
“The eyes of all look to You, And You give them their food in due time.”
The eyes of the wicked do not look to God and the holy system of the Tree of Life and they are left with anger and jealousy of the holy side of Malchut.
Malchut (Kingdom) of heaven is the Nukva (female) of Zeir Anpin. She is the aspect of the Holy Temple that sustains the poor because it has the support of the Shechina. Tzadik, Yessod is the ‘collector’ of Tzedakah and distributes to all. Those who give Tzedakah have the aspect of Yessod of Zeir Anpin and earn merits from the light that distributes to all.
Look to the holy system for your sustenance. Keep the certainty because sooner or later it will surely come. Those who gives up, lose the connection to Yessod and left with frustrations and anger.
Certainty is a bridge over obstacles. Keep your faith in God and his support. He provides for all as we read above in Psalms 145:15. (Write this down and keep it in your wallet, purse as a reminder when you come across a challenge. It’s either certainty or anger)
