Daily Zohar # 2957 – Teruma – A shining secret about the morning
Continue from DZ 2665
At midnight the wind of the north that is the aspect of the Left column and the forces of the other-side reach a state of completion. It then makes all the forces of the Left to go back to their places because they lose their control after midnight. Then the Holy One Blessed be He enters the Garden of Eden to have ‘fun’ with the Tzadikim.
When the morning comes the force of the Left is hidden like the light of a candle in the sun. The Light of Chassadim of the day is now in control and provide nourishment and protection to all the worlds above and below.
The Zohar reveals a secret; if a person wakes up at a certain time when the light appears in the East, he can see the letters that created heaven and earth shines in the sky going up and down.
The Zohar discuss the great value of studying after midnight. At that time the Left is going down and the Light of Chassadim builds up and revealed completely when the first ray of the sun appears on the horizon. In Israel, there are many synagogues that schedule their morning prayers to make the Shema Israel prayer before the sunrise and the silent prayer, Amida to start exactly at the time of sunrise that is called ‘נץ’ (pronounced ‘Netz’). This is the same root as the word the Zohar uses to describe the ‘shine’ ‘נְצִיצוּ’ of the letters of creation.
Waking up before sunrise is a strong connection to Chassadim and it would make the day a ‘brighter’ one.
