Daily Zohar # 2929 – Vaera – The 'whole' in the first commandment
Following the precepts in the lower world of Malchut, activate the Tree of Life and the upper channels are filled with abundance of Life and Healing light. When a person in Malchut completes himself with the 248 precepts of positive actions in the Torah, all his days are blessed because of his actions. He activated the Tree of Life as previously explained.
“וְאַתֵּן צֹאנִי צֹאן מַרְעִיתִי אָדָם אַתֶּם אֲנִי אֱלֹהֵיכֶם נְאֻם אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה”
“”As for you, My sheep, the sheep of My pasture, you are men (Adam, אָדָם ), and I am your God,” declares YHVH GOD.”
The Israelites are called ‘אָדָם’ (Adam), ‘Man’ because they accepted and follow the Torah. The other nations of the world don’t have the privilege to be called the same.
The 613 Mitzvot, Precepts in the Torah have 248 positive actions and 365 protections from negativity. These are tools for us to make connections and draw light of Life and Healing for all of our body parts on the spiritual and corporeal level.
When God gave the Torah to the children of Israel on Mount Sinai, he started with “I am your God” to let us know that he governs this world. He is the aspect of ‘whole’ and when it says, ‘your God’ it is the aspect of ‘detail’ because we ae part of the ‘whole’. This is the aspect of first and last, beginning and end that we explained previously.
We are not able to complete all the precepts in one lifetime because there are some for men, woman, priests etc. To connect to all the precepts and have a complete ‘body’ and light we study the Torah. Each precept that we study connects us to the Tree of Life and fill up our ‘days’.
