80. עֶבֶד, לַעֲבֹד בְּכָל מִינֵי עֲבוֹדָה, בִּתְפִלָּה שֶׁנִּקְרֵאת עֲבוֹדָה, כְּמוֹ אוֹתוֹ עֶבֶד שֶׁהוּא סוֹד עֶלְיוֹן, שֶׁלֹּא שׁוֹכֵךְ לְעוֹלָמִים תָּמִיד, וּמְשַׁבֵּחַ וּמְנַגֵּן תָּמִיד. וַהֲרֵי נִתְבָּאֵר בַּעֲבוֹדוֹת אֲחֵרוֹת, שֶׁכָּל הָעֲבוֹדוֹת וְדִבְרֵי הָעוֹלָמוֹת, כֻּלָּם הוּא עוֹשֶׂה וְעוֹבֵד. וּמִשּׁוּם זֶה נִקְרָא אָדוֹן, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁהוּא עֶבֶד לַעֲבֹד, נִקְרָא אֲדוֹן כָּל הָאָרֶץ. בֶּן אָדָם שֶׁמִּתְעַטֵּר בַּסּוֹד הַזֶּה, לִהְיוֹת עֶבֶד לַעֲבֹד עֲבוֹדַת רַבּוֹ, הוּא עוֹלֶה וּמִתְעַטֵּר לִהְיוֹת בַּדַּרְגָּה הַזּוֹ, וְנִקְרָא אַף כָּאן אָדוֹן, שֶׁהֲרֵי הוּא מְבָרֵךְ בְּכָל הָעֲבוֹדוֹת הָאֵלֶּה אֶת הָעוֹלָם הַזֶּה וּמַעֲמִידוֹ, וְעַל זֶה נִקְרָא אָדוֹן. (אֲדוֹנֵי הָאָרֶץ).

The Zohar tells us that we should work on the levels of ‘servant’ that connects to Malchut and the level of ‘son of God’ to connect to Zeir Anpin. When a person accepts on himself the aspect of ‘servant’ he is called ‘אֲדוֹן כָּל הָאָרֶץ’, ‘Master of the earth (Malchut)’. He draws the light of Chokmah from Malchut and as a ‘son’ he draws Chassadim from Zeir Anpin to create a complete connection of Zeir Anpin and Malchut. This connection of upper and lower is considered as a complete faith, ‘Emuna’ that is the outcome that comes from doing the actions of the servant below and draws the light of Chassadim from above.
The ‘servant’ occupies himself with work of spiritual connections, prayers, and praises to Zeir Anpin. It is needed in Malchut to activate the upper levels that have the light we need. Malchut is in constant movement and the ‘work’ of the servant must be continuous to draws sustenance and Life. The servant is also called ‘Master of the earth’ because his work causes a process that provides light for all the worlds.
Serving God is the way to become a master in this world. The ‘services’ we do with our connection to the Torah and Zohar are just a process that benefits and elevates us above Malchut. Most people that don’t accept the work of the ‘servant’ are slaves in the world below. They stay in the darkness of Malchut with the illusion that they have control over their lives.
Those who study the Torah and Zohar recognize the feeling of control that they have over their lives. They have certainty and connection to the Light that bestow on them guidance and light of Chassadim. They are less reactive to obstacles and always see the light on the road ahead that leads to the ‘Palace’.
The servants that get inside the palace enjoy its beauty and have the protection of the King.
Tomorrow is Lag B’Omer, a day that we celebrate the life and work of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai that gave us the Zohar with its divine connection and infinite wisdom that we tap on with the studies of the Daily Zohar. Become a ‘son of YHVH’ on this day by making more Zohar studies. Check this page for tools that would give you access to the Palace. Light candles for the honor of Rabbi Shimon and Rabbi Yitzchak his student. Give Tzedaka to open the gate of Yessod and Zeir Anpin for you and read, scan, listen, and study Zohar more than any other day. Rabbi Shimon is in the supernal Palace and you can ask him to take your prayers to the King and bless you.
Happy Lag B’Omer.
