Daily Zohar # 3002 – Shemini – How to write your own 'Torah'
“וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל מֹשֶׁה עֲלֵה אֵלַי הָהָרָה וֶהְיֵה שָׁם וְאֶתְּנָה לְךָ אֶת לֻחֹת הָאֶבֶן וְהַתּוֹרָה וְהַמִּצְוָה אֲשֶׁר כָּתַבְתִּי לְהוֹרֹתָם”
“Now YHVH said to Moses, “Come up to Me on the mountain and remain there, and I will give you the stone tablets with the law and the commandment which I have written to guide them.”
‘The law’ is the written Torah, Zeir Anpin and the ‘commandments’ are the Mitzvot, Malchut, that we should follow.
The word ‘לְהוֹרֹתָם’ ‘to guide them’ is missing the letter Vav ו that is the aspect of Zeir Anpin. In this form, it also means ‘to be their parents’ (הורה אותם). The secret revealed here is that the beginning of the Torah is in Chokmah, the Father that is called ‘supernal book.’ It is concealed and with the connection of Father with the Mother, Binah, the revelations that are the aspect of writing, begins to be revealed. Zeir Anpin is the ‘son’ that comes from the unification of the supernal Father and Mother and is called the ‘written Torah.’ This process is revealed in the verse with the words ‘which I have written to guide them.’
The Oral Torah is another Torah that comes from the level of Da’at that represents the unification of Father and Mother forming the center column, Zeir Anpin. The ‘book,’ Chokmah and ‘writing,’ Binah revealed in Malchut with the Oral Torah like the mouth of a person reveals what’s in his concealed thoughts. Malchut exists from the Light revealed from Zeir Anpin, the written Torah.
Moses brought us the written and the Oral Torah from Mount Sinai because he ‘climbed’ high and became the chariot to the Sefira of Da’at.
The Zohar reveals to us that the Torah was in ‘play’ 2000 years before the act of Creation that followed the words of the Torah.
The first letter of the Torah should have been the first letter of the Alef-Bet, but instead, we have a large letter Bet. The Alef is at the level of Chokmah, and the Bet is at the level of Binah. The rest of the Torah letters are at the level of Zeir Anpin. (There are few small letters at the level of Malchut).
The concealed Alef represents the concealed thought of the Creator and his creation. Torah that we have is the expression of his thoughts.
One of the most challenging problems for most people is to bring their thoughts and ideas into action and manifestation.
This study teaches us how to write a book and build a world. When we have thought from the Right (Chokmah) that worth manifesting, we should write it down (Binah). They follow a process like the development of a baby in a womb. We add details and parts (limbs) and assign actions. We keep the consciousness of having the Light of YHVH supports us and the initial idea manifest with life force to success.
Without the gift of the idea, Chokmah and cooperation of Binah in writing we can’t have Da’at and the manifestation process, Zeir Anpin(Torah) to Malchut for complete manifestation.
This entire process is a revelation process of the four letters name YHVH. Always have this name in front of you. Our consciousness is critical when we start an action. It’s the first manifestation of a whole plan and therefore very important. If we don’t have the Light connected to the work, then there’s only physical energy that doesn’t have a long life or blessings attached to it.
“אִם-יְהוָה, לֹא-יִבְנֶה בַיִת– שָׁוְא עָמְלוּ בוֹנָיו בּוֹ.”
“Unless YHVH builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.”
