Tikkun 21 – 33
The Zohar points here to Deuteronomy 17:8
“כִּי יִפָּלֵא מִמְּךָ דָבָר לַמִּשְׁפָּט, בֵּין-דָּם לְדָם בֵּין-דִּין לְדִין וּבֵין נֶגַע לָנֶגַע–דִּבְרֵי רִיבֹת, בִּשְׁעָרֶיךָ: וְקַמְתָּ וְעָלִיתָ–אֶל-הַמָּקוֹם, אֲשֶׁר יִבְחַר יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ בּוֹ”
“If there is a matter too hard for your judgment…controversy between your gates…you shall rise and go to the place that God shall choose”
The Torah guides us to the answer of what to do when we are confused and have lost connection. We should elevate ourselves to where the Light is.
When we are not ‘knocking’ on the gates (with our prayers) we let darkness into our lives with the force of separation.
God is screaming at the Israelites to hold on to him and get strength from him, in order to create peace and completion between the desire and the fulfillment, light and the vessel, Zeir Anpin and Malchut.
