Daily Zohar # 3001 – Shemini – How to add to your treasuries
Those who cling to the center column by unifying Right and Left, achieve completion in the world and the world to come. This adherence to the center connects us to Binah where Right and Left, Oil and Wine, are together. The pleasure of the higher light discourages the person from following the false and temporary pleasures of this world.
King Solomon said in Proverbs 21:17
“אִישׁ מַחְסוֹר אֹהֵב שִׂמְחָה אֹהֵב יַיִן וָשֶׁמֶן לֹא יַעֲשִׁיר.”
“He who loves pleasure will become a poor man; He who loves wine and oil will not become rich.”
Those who seek the pleasures of this world become poor in energy from the Light. Those who unify Right (oil) and Left (wine) to reach Binah, become rich with Light in this world and the world to come.
The wisdom of those who study Torah is the treasure benefits them in this world and the world to come. It’s accumulated on the spiritual level and can’t be measured with valuables of this world like Gold.
“לֹא יַעַרְכֶנָּה זָהָב וּזְכוֹכִית וּתְמוּרָתָהּ כְּלִי פָז”
“Gold or glass cannot equal it, Nor can it be exchanged for articles of fine gold.”
God would fill the treasures of those who love him and connect to the wisdom, Chokmah. These treasuries would await them in the world to come.
“לְהַנְחִיל אֹהֲבַי יֵשׁ וְאֹצְרֹתֵיהֶם אֲמַלֵּא”
“To endow those who love me with wealth, That I may fill their treasuries.”
This paragraph starts a new study about the Oral and written Torah.
It will be included in the next DZ study.
Love is a type of connection that glues two together. When we love YHVH we make a higher level connection between Binah and Malchut.
Life in this world is temporary. Material wealth can be used only in this world. After the soul gets undressed from its body, the only treasure the soul carries is the light accumulated with our studies and other spiritual connections.
The world to come has two aspects; one is the state of the soul in the Garden of Eden and the state it would be at the time of the Resurrection to immortality.
The wise investment is in reaching Wisdom/Chokmah that would benefit our souls with an eternal state of richness.
Each person can reach different levels of understanding the secrets of Torah, but each one of us can conduct their lives with love to God.
The first word of the important prayer of Shema Israel is ‘ואהבת’ ‘and love’ YHVH your God….
With the studies comes appreciation and love to God. It grows in time to the point that every action a person does creates a unification of Light and add to his treasuries.
