Daily Zohar # 2956 – Mishpatim – A convert and a holy soul
The Elder cried and said to himself that it’s proper to cry on every revelation. It is known to the Holy One Blessed be He and the Shechina, that everything said came from the desire of the soul and heart and every word of the study is added to their honor.
The holy souls that come down to the world are ‘dressed’ with souls of converts and enter the seeds that bring life. With these garments, they come out to live in this world, slaved in a body but with abilities to follow the precepts and do positive actions. The light revealed by the precepts adds pleasant scents that nourish and benefit the holy souls.
The souls of the converts serve as a middle layer between the body and the righteous souls that receive only from the positive actions made by the converts.
A soul of a convert conceals another righteous soul that joined her in this world so it can be awakened to follow the ways of the Torah. When the converted soul follows the righteous path, a bond with the holy soul inside is made and the convert’s soul accompanies the righteous soul back to the Garden of Eden.
Crying is aspect of revelation on the level of Chokmah. The eyes are the highest sense that we have and it connects directly to the brain and the spiritual realm (Visions, Hallucinations…).
The aspect of scent is considered pure because it was the only sense that wasn’t part of the first sin. The Light we reveal add scent to our spiritual garments.
After Shabbat we make blessing over a pleasant scent to Myrtle, special herbs or perfume to keep the extra level of souls we receive on Shabbat a little longer with us.
Mashiach would know our purity by the scent our souls give out.
