65. וְעַל זֶה אָנוּ עוֹשִׂים חֶשְׁבּוֹן בַּעֲמִידָה עַל הָרַגְלַיִם, לְפִי שֶׁאֵלּוּ הַיָּמִים, יָמִים עֶלְיוֹנִים הֵם. וְכֵן בְּכָל זְמַן שֶׁנִּכְנָס אָדָם לְאֵלּוּ הַיָּמִים הָעֶלְיוֹנִים, בֵּין בִּתְפִלָּה בֵּין בְּשֶׁבַח, צָרִיךְ לַעֲמֹד עַל רַגְלָיו, הַיְרֵכַיִם וְהַגּוּף כְּאֶחָד שָׁם. יְרֵכַיִם וְגוּף לַעֲמִידָה כְּזָכָר שֶׁעוֹמֵד בְּכֹחוֹ, וְלֹא כִנְקֵבָה שֶׁדַּרְכָּהּ לָשֶׁבֶת. וְעוֹד, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁבַח שֶׁל הָעוֹלָם הָעֶלְיוֹן.
“וְהִקְרִיב אַהֲרֹן אֶת פַּר הַחַטָּאת אֲשֶׁר לוֹ וְכִפֶּר בַּעֲדוֹ וּבְעַד בֵּיתוֹ”
“Then Aaron shall offer the bull for the sin offering which is for himself, that he may make atonement for himself and for his household.”
Aaron brought an offering to purify himself before he purified his household. In a similar way, on the first night of Pesach, the Shechina sanctifies herself by Father (Chokmah) and Mother (Binah) above so she can go down and sanctify her house, which Malchut, where her children reside. This process is done through the seven days of Passover. These days establish a foundation for the connection to the lower seven Sefirot, which is the Six Sefirot of Zeir Anpin and Malchut. The sanctified house, Malchut and the children need to connect the Shechina back to Father and Mother. Their process takes seven weeks and it is called the counting of the Omer.
The counting of the Omer is done while standing because this connection is to the levels of Zeir Anpin, which is above Malchut. Standing is an aspect of Male and sitting is an aspect of a female. We stand during our prayers when we connect to Zeir Anpin and above and sit when we draw down Light to our vessel, Malchut. We also stand to honor the upper worlds. The two legs are the aspect of Netzach and Hod and include Yessod that connects them together.
The Light that comes down has a full ‘body’ and has the Sefirot of Chokmah, Binah, Daat, which is the aspect of the head. Then Chessed, Gevurah, and Tiferet that is the upper body. Netzach, Hod, and Yessod is the aspect of the lower part of the body. To connect to the Light in complete form, we stand so our vessel and especially our lower part of the vessel that is Netzach, Hod, and Yessod would connect to the same levels of the Light.
Our spiritual connections include different phases of sitting and standing for the reasons explained above. There is also importance to the direction of our body. The most elevated phase of our prayers is when we stand for the silent prayer, Amida, and face the East, which is the aspect of the Central column, Tiferet.
When a Tzadik or a father or a man that we honor makes a spiritual connection, it would be good for us to stand and have an affinity with his connection that would benefit us.
The direction of our beds especially for a couple that is planning to have children is best positioned with the head toward the East and legs toward the west. The most important is to have the head farther from the entrance to the room because negativity lurks by the door.
When a couple comes together in bed to have a child, the woman that is the aspect of Malchut should lay down and the man that is the aspect of Zeir Anpin, channeling the Light should be above. After channeling the ‘Light’ the man should stay above the woman until his Yessod finish the delivery of the Light and retract by itself.
Because Netzach, Hod, and Yessod are connected together, ‘damaging’ the channel of Yessod set flaws to the legs. A man should not spill his seeds because it would hurt all aspects of walking. It includes the actual legs, the path of sustenance and relationships. Yessod is our channel of Light and if it’s flawed, we damage all aspects of fulfillment we desire in this world, spiritual or material.
Yessod is also the aspect of a ‘door’ that is controlled by Sam-el and his female (Li-li-th. Do not pronounce their names. Use a short version like sam and Lili). The best cure against them is the study of the Torah. The numerical value of both controllers of the negative-side סמאל+לילית equal 611 same as Torah תורה. The two are also the aspect of the ‘Snake’ that has the numerical value of 358, the same as for Mashiach. When we control the Snake, we can see Mashiach. B”H Today, Amen.
