Daily Zohar # 3194 – Chaye Sarah – Are you seeking Snakes
Continued from previous DZ
Balaam made a circle, said some words followed by other actions until he drew upon himself impure spirits that gave him the information from the side of the Snake that he was looking for. His actions were according to the information he received from the impure side.
“וַיַּרְא בִּלְעָם כִּי טוֹב בְּעֵינֵי יְהוָה לְבָרֵךְ אֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל וְלֹא הָלַךְ כְּפַעַם בְּפַעַם לִקְרַאת נְחָשִׁים וַיָּשֶׁת אֶל הַמִּדְבָּר פָּנָיו.”
“When Balaam saw that it pleased YHVH to bless Israel, he did not go as at other times to seek omens (Snakes) but he set his face toward the wilderness.”
According to the Zohar, this verse reveals that Balaam was seeking the actual snakes to connect to the root of impurity for his witchcrafts.
Connecting to the impure and evil side is relatively easy because there are many opportunities to become impure in this world. The control that can be achieved from the impure side is only at the lower and material level. The negative forces in Malchut can give only temporary pleasures and dependencies continuous delivery of the ‘temporary’.
The souls of people that connect to witchcrafts become darker and pushed away far from the Light of the pure and holy system.
There is no positive ‘future’ for those who deal with witchcraft. Even if they can achieve control and success in the material world, ultimately, they die, and their souls experience great suffering after death. They have no share in the world to come and won’t be resurrected to immortality.
