Daily Zohar # 3189 – Vayera – Where is she?
“וַיֹּאמְרוּ אֵלָיו, אַיֵּה שָׂרָה אִשְׁתֶּךָ; וַיֹּאמֶר, הִנֵּה בָאֹהֶל”
“Then they said to him (אֵלָיו), “Where (אַיֵּה) is Sarah your wife?” And he said, “There, in the tent.”
The word ‘to him’, ‘אֵלָיו’ has three dots above the letters אוי
These three letters imply a connection to the Holy One Blessed be He. The angels asked Abraham about his connection to the Holy One with the letters ‘איו’ and then asked where is the Shechina with the word ‘Where’, ‘איה’. Abraham replied, “in the tent”.
The tent is the place of the female, the Shechina, and where the Holy One and the Shechina are connected together.
The Zohar asks why the angels asked where is Sarah. As supreme angels, couldn’t they know that Sarah is in the tent? The answer is that angels can’t know in this world, only what is told to them.
When God brought the final hit on the Egyptian that was killing the firstborn, he did it himself because angels can’t tell between firstborn or not. Only the Holy One Blessed be He knows that.
Angel is a messenger with a specific mission to execute. As we studied previously, God sent three angels to Abraham because each one of them had a unique mission to follow. Raphael came to heal Abraham, Michael to announce the coming of a child to Sarah and Gabriel came with the mission to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah.
Every channel of Light is like an angel of God. We should treat everyone around as an angel that delivers a message from God.
The Hebrew letters have forms of angels because they deliver specific energy to this world. When we read the sacred text, we connect to these angels and receive their light.
The burial place of Tzadikim is called ‘Ohel’, ‘Tent’ because they build on top of the grave a chamber small or big as a vessel for the Shechina to be with the Tzadik.
The Holy Tabernacle where the Shechina was with the Holy Ark of the covenant was called “Tent of meeting”. The ‘meeting’ was not just between Moses, Aaron and the services but for the Unification of YHVH and the Shechina to bring light to the world.
