Tikkun 21 – 62
After YHVH will take revenge from the Amalek, he will be filled with mercy over the Israelites. Revenge is נקמה, which has the same letters as מנקה, meaning cleanse.
After the cleansing process YHVH will sit on his throne and at that time will cleanse the negativity from the nations of Esau.
Then the light will reveal itself in Malchut that is going through its cleansing process with a painful cry, Jeremiah 31:14” כֹּה אָמַר יְהוָה, קוֹל בְּרָמָה נִשְׁמָע נְהִי בְּכִי תַמְרוּרִים–רָחֵל, מְבַכָּה עַל-בָּנֶיהָ”.
The Holy One Bless be He, promises her to remove the negativity from all nations. They will be killed until the sea turns red from their blood. The beasts of the earth will be fed from them for 12 years and the birds in the sky for 7 years.
This part of the Zohar is very enigmatic. Obviously such messages are covered with a lot of layers to hide them from the people for one strong reason.
If Rabbi Shimon were to draw the picture of the future as he saw it in his time, then many people would have followed blindly and wouldn’t exercise the freedom to choose a different path and by that effect the outcome could have possibly been different.
The symbols that the Zohar uses can be understood as follow;
The blood, דמים is related to money and the economy. This implies that the light that will come to cleanse negativity will start by cleansing our blood, which is the lower level of the soul. In life money is what keeps life running. The negativity of money is the greed of everyone that handle it. It is pure when it is used to transfer energies between people for normal trade. When it is used with greed to accumulate more of it by hurting and taking from others without providing good, is negative.
Recently we see how many economic units and systems are crashing down in the US and Europe. Other countries also experience similar situations.
I do not wish to put fear in no one, but the message that appears in the Zohar in this section and in many other places is that people should understand that without the connection to the light the cleansing process will be painful.
Zechariah 13:9 “ וְהֵבֵאתִי אֶת-הַשְּׁלִשִׁית, בָּאֵשׁ, וּצְרַפְתִּים כִּצְרֹף אֶת-הַכֶּסֶף, וּבְחַנְתִּים כִּבְחֹן אֶת-הַזָּהָב”
“And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried;”
We should remove the ‘Greed’ from all our actions and use our energy to help others earn and be like the light.
