Continued from previous DZ study
After the seven weeks of counting the Omer, Malchut is sanctified and ready to have unification with Zeir Anpin. It is the 50th day after the first day of Passover, and it is called the holiday of Shavuot.
When we arrive at the 50th day, we reach the level of Binah that controls the 49 days/sefirot of Zeir Anpin that represents the whole Torah. Because of the work below of building the vessel with the process of the counting, we created the bridge to the Torah and had merit to receive it.
We celebrate Passover in the fifteenth day, the full moon of the first month of the year. Pesach is the aspect of the Right Column. Sukkot that is exactly six months earlier is the Left Column. Fifty days after Pesach we celebrate Shavuot that represents the Central column, Zeir Anpin and the Torah. Shavuot is marked on the third month (Sivan that is after Nisan and Iyar) to represent the balance of the ‘third’. The 50th day falls on the sixth of the month, where six represents the letter Viv of the YHVH name and Zeir Anpin.
We work during the six days of the week to build a vessel so, on the seventh day that is Shabbat, we can connect and receive the Light of the Torah through a process of Seven elevations that are called ‘Aliyot’. ‘עליה’ means ‘elevation’ and the four letters form על יה ‘above – YH’ where יה YH are the letters for Chokmah and Binah, the levels that we always want to connect.
The study of Zohar and Kabbalah teach us the spiritual technology we need to use to build ‘bridges’ and connect better to the Light of the upper three Sefirot that control every level of our lives.
