Daily Zohar # 3132 – Vaetchanan – Do you have a well of living water
The children of Israel are blessed because they are the sons of the Holy King. They carry the impression of his light on their bodies with the circumcision, on their clothes when wearing the Tallit and Tefillin and all the precepts we do with our hands and body. We connect to the Holy King also in our homes with the Mezuzah on the doors. We have the opportunity to receive the Light from the King with almost everything we do.
“כִּי שְׁתַּיִם רָעוֹת עָשָׂה עַמִּי אֹתִי עָזְבוּ מְקוֹר מַיִם חַיִּים לַחְצֹב לָהֶם בֹּארוֹת בֹּארֹת נִשְׁבָּרִים אֲשֶׁר לֹא יָכִלוּ הַמָּיִם.”
“for my people have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewed out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water.”
Those who leave the source of the ‘living water’ that is the aspect of true and pure Light, have broken vessels that cannot hold the light.
‘Life’ comes from about, upper three Sefirot. There is an earning process that is not always easy. We need to climb up to draw the light of life and sustenance, living water. It’s easier to look for immediate and close solutions on the level of Malchut that require fewer efforts. The only problem is that Malchut has the aspect of a ‘well’ without water. The Torah and the study of it from the Zohar is a well of living water.
