Daily Zohar # 2987 – Vayikra – Arise, shine; for your light has come
Continued from DZ 2689
In the future, the Holy One Blessed be He will come down to Malchut, hold the ‘hands’ of the Shechina and say.
“הִתְנַעֲרִי מֵעָפָר קוּמִי שְּׁבִי יְרוּשָׁלִָם התפתחו [הִתְפַּתְּחִי] מוֹסְרֵי צַוָּארֵךְ שְׁבִיָּה בַּת צִיּוֹן”
“Shake yourself from the dust, rise up, O captive Jerusalem; Loose yourself from the chains around your neck, O captive daughter of Zion.”
Then the ‘entourage’ of the King continues to encourage the Shechina to rise and accept the honor given to her by the King, saying;
“קוּמִי אוֹרִי כִּי בָא אוֹרֵךְ וּכְבוֹד יְהוָה עָלַיִךְ זָרָח”
“Arise, shine; for your light has come, And the glory of YHVH has risen upon you.”
It is a joyous moment when the king reconcile with the queen.
1 Kings 1:15
“וַתָּבֹא בַת-שֶׁבַע אֶל-הַמֶּלֶךְ הַחַדְרָה”
“So Bathsheba went into the king in the bedroom. ”
1 Kings 1:28
“וַתָּבֹא לִפְנֵי הַמֶּלֶךְ, וַתַּעֲמֹד לִפְנֵי הַמֶּלֶךְ.”
“And she came into the king’s presence and stood before the king.”
Before this particular time, the Shechina was going up to the King, but at the time of the Final Redemption, he will come down to her, to take her up for eternal unification as it says;
“וְאֵרַשְׂתִּיךְ לִי בֶּאֱמוּנָה וְיָדַעַתְּ אֶת יְהוָה”
“And I will betroth thee unto Me in faithfulness, and thou shalt know YHVH.”
The ‘faithfulness’ is ‘אֱמוּנָה’ from the root of Amen, and it represents the unification of upper and lower. This time the aspect of “You shall know YHVH” is eternal unification.
Before the Final Redemption, we are in a state of exile. Malchut is the aspect of the final H of the YHVH name.
The current process is as follows;
We have H that is Malchut; we make a connection to V, which is Zeir Anpin and Torah, to connect to YH that is Chokmah and Binah and draw sustenance to this world. On that moment of connection with have unification of all the levels H+V+YH = YHVH. The [+] represents a process and efforts that is prayers, meditations, precepts etc.. This is a continuous effort that must be done in every action. For that reason, we use the recommendations of the Holy Ari and say “L’Shem Yichud” (for the unification of YH+VH) before major connections or whenever we put personal consciousness into the action that follows.
In the Final Redemption the nine sefirot of Light, יהו YHV, will bound with Malchut ה H that doesn’t have a light of its own and pull her up for complete and eternal unification. Then we will have 10 Sefirot of Light, meaning, fully activated Tree of Life with continuous flow and no need of a process to make unifications.
Before the Final Redemption, the only time that we have a more extended unification of Light and vessel is during Shabbat. From Friday night to Saturday night, the Shechina goes up to Binah for unification, and we can tap into the revealed light with our prayers and studies.
