Daily Zohar # 3077 – Shelach – Make yourself a King
Zohar Shelach Lecha
Against the sea in this world, that is Malchut, there’s a supernal sea above that is the supreme Malchut. Binah is also called ‘sea’. Malchut and Binah are parallel to each other and share the same letter Hה of the YHVH name, one above and one below.
On the upper level of Malchut, there are three aspects. There’s the river Dinur that surrounds camps of angels. Opposite it from the left come out seventy forces with aspects of angels. Their source is the seven fire beacons that are the seven sefirot of the fire of Gevurah. Each one of them has ten sefirot. They protect the Shechina and surround the four chariots that are the secret of the angels Michael, Gabriel, Uriel, and Raphael.
The four angels surround and carry the holy city that is Malchut of Atzilut and the secret of the Heart that is in the middle of them.
By itself, Malchut has several aspects and the inner of it is the heart that receives from the brain that is Zeir Anpin. The courts within courts in Malchut are the secret of the lower seven sefirot of Malchut. The kings from the line of David has the sole permission to be there because they had the ‘crown’ of Malchut (David). The greater assembly of the Sanhedrin was in the Lishkat HaGazit that is the secret of Zeir Anpin of the upper three sefirot of Malchut. The courthouse was above Malchut and it is the secret of the upper three of the upper three sefirot that serve the holy side of Malchut, not the lower aspects of the other-side.
The Sanhedrin (supreme court) decisions release judgments/decrees on the wicked people. The power of the Sanhedrin comes from the ‘heart’, which is the Holy of Holies. It has the aspect of Yessod of Malchut that receives its light from Zeir Anpin.
Everything is connected to each other and to the heart that is inner, higher and the source of light, where nourishment comes to the world. The heart is the ‘King’, Zeir Anpin. The ‘Brain’ is the essence of Light that Zeir Anpin receives from Arich Anpin through Father and Mother that is Chokmah and Binah.
The Holy of Holies in the Holy Temple is the Heart of this world and it receives from Malchut of Atzilut that receives from the concealed brain that is the inner aspect of Keter.
The three major control centers in our body are the brain, heart, and liver. The liver has the soul level of Nefesh and controls the purity of the blood. Its functions depend on the heart that controls the flow of blood. The heart is the aspect of the soul level of Ruach that depends on the Brain. The brain is the main control of the body and has the aspect of the soul level of Neshama.
Using the analogy of the Zohar, the liver, Nefesh, surrounds the body, the heart, Ruach, surrounds the liver and the brain, Neshama, surrounds the heart. The brain connects to Keter that surrounds everything. It receives Light from Keter based on the levels of Nefesh, Ruach, and Neshama.
The Hebrew initials for Brain מוח, Heart לב, and Liver כבד, is מלך that means ‘King’. The soul is the ‘king’ over our domain, body, Malchut. The king of kings is Keter that is outside our body. Keter כתר means ‘crown’.
