Hebrew translation:

84. וּבֹא רְאֵה, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁנֶּפֶשׁ חַיָּה הַזּוֹ הִיא קְדוֹשָׁה עֶלְיוֹנָה, כְּשֶׁמּוֹשֶׁכֶת אוֹתָהּ הָאָרֶץ הַקְּדוֹשָׁה וְנִכְלֶלֶת בְּתוֹכָהּ, אָז קוֹרְאִים לָהּ נְשָׁמָה, וְזוֹ הִיא שֶׁעוֹלָה לְמַעְלָה וּמְדַבֶּרֶת לִפְנֵי הַמֶּלֶךְ הַקָּדוֹשׁ, וְנִכְנֶסֶת בְּכָל הַשְּׁעָרִים, וְאֵין מוֹחֶה בְיָדָהּ, וְעַל כֵּן נִקְרֵאת רוּחַ מְמַלְּלָא, שֶׁהֲרֵי לְכָל שְׁאָר הַנְּפָשׁוֹת אֵין רְשׁוּת לְדַבֵּר לִפְנֵי הַמֶּלֶךְ, פְּרָט לָזוֹ.
85. וְעַל כֵּן הַתּוֹרָה מַכְרִיזָה וְאוֹמֶרֶת: (תהלים לד) נְצֹר לְשׁוֹנְךָ מֵרָע וְגוֹ’, וְכָתוּב (משלי כא) שֹׁמֵר פִּיו וּלְשׁוֹנוֹ וְגוֹ’. מִשּׁוּם שֶׁאִם שִׂפְתוֹתָיו וּלְשׁוֹנוֹ מְדַבְּרִים דְּבָרִים רָעִים, אוֹתָם הַדִּבּוּרִים עוֹלִים לְמַעְלָה, וּבְשָׁעָה שֶׁעוֹלִים, הַכֹּל מַכְרִיזִים וְאוֹמְרִים: הִסְתַּלְּקוּ מִסְּבִיב הַדִּבּוּר הָרָע שֶׁל פְּלוֹנִי! פַּנּוּ מָקוֹם לְדַרְכּוֹ שֶׁל הַנָּחָשׁ הַתַּקִּיף! אָז הַנְּשָׁמָה הַקְּדוֹשָׁה עוֹבֶרֶת מִמֶּנּוּ וּמִסְתַּלֶּקֶת וְלֹא יְכוֹלָה לְדַבֵּר, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (תהלים לט) נֶאֱלַמְתִּי דוּמִיָּה הֶחֱשֵׁיתִי מִטּוֹב.
86. וְאוֹתָהּ הַנְּשָׁמָה עוֹלָה בְּבוּשָׁה, בַּצָּרָה שֶׁל הַכֹּל, וְלֹא נוֹתְנִים לָהּ מָקוֹם כְּמִקֹּדֶם. וְעַל זֶה כָּתוּב, שֹׁמֵר פִּיו וּלְשׁוֹנוֹ שֹׁמֵר מִצָּרוֹת נַפְשׁוֹ. נַפְשׁוֹ וַדַּאי. אוֹתָהּ שֶׁהָיְתָה מְדַבֶּרֶת, נֶעֶשְׂתָה מְשֻׁתֶּקֶת מִשּׁוּם הַדִּבּוּר הָרָע. וְאָז מִזְדַּמֵּן הַנָּחָשׁ, שֶׁהַכֹּל חוֹזֵר לִמְקוֹמוֹ, וּכְשֶׁאוֹתוֹ הַדִּבּוּר הָרָע עוֹלֶה בִדְרָכִים יְדוּעוֹת וְשׁוֹרֶה לִפְנֵי הַנָּחָשׁ הַתַּקִּיף, כַּמָּה רוּחוֹת מִתְעוֹרְרוֹת בָּעוֹלָם, וְרוּחַ יוֹרֶדֶת מֵהַצַּד הַהוּא, וּמוֹצֵאת אוֹתוֹ הָאִישׁ מְעוֹרֵר אוֹתוֹ בְּדִבּוּר רָע, וְהָרוּחַ הַמְמַלֶּלֶת הַקְּדוֹשָׁה הַזּוֹ עוֹבֶרֶת מִמֶּנּוּ. אָז שׁוֹרָה עָלָיו וּמְטַמֵּאת אוֹתוֹ, וְאָז הוּא סָגוּר.

Zohar Tazria

Continued from previous DZ

When the ‘Living soul (Nefesh)’ in Malchut connects higher to its source of Light in Binah, it is called ‘Neshamah’, A soul level which is higher than the second level that is called ‘Ruach’. Neshama is the highest level of soul that can be achieved in this world.
At this level, the soul can pass through all the gates in heavens and speak in front of the Holy King because only Souls with the Light of Binah can speak to him.

The Bible warns us in many places to watch our tongue from speaking bad.
Psalms 34:14
“נְצֹר לְשׁוֹנְךָ מֵרָע וּשְׂפָתֶיךָ מִדַּבֵּר מִרְמָה.”
“Keep your tongue from evil And your lips from speaking deceit.”
Proverbs 21:23
“שֹׁמֵר פִּיו וּלְשׁוֹנוֹ שֹׁמֵר מִצָּרוֹת נַפְשׁוֹ.”
“He who guards his mouth and his tongue, Guards his soul from troubles.”
Psalms 39:2
“אָמַרְתִּי אֶשְׁמְרָה דְרָכַי מֵחֲטוֹא בִלְשׁוֹנִי אֶשְׁמְרָה לְפִי מַחְסוֹם בְּעֹד רָשָׁע לְנֶגְדִּי׃ ”
“I said, “I will guard my ways so that I may not sin with my tongue; I will guard my mouth as with a muzzle While the wicked are in my presence.”

The words ascend up to the spiritual levels and when recognized as evil speak, the holy soul level of Neshama is removed. In this case, the soul losses the ability to speak above. The Snake is then ready to take the place of the soul that left the person.

Psalms 39:3
“נֶאֱלַמְתִּי דוּמִיָּה הֶחֱשֵׁיתִי מִטּוֹב וּכְאֵבִי נֶעְכָּר.”
“I was mute and silent, I refrained even from good, And my sorrow grew worse.”

The soul that leaves the person goes up with shame, unable to return to the good place she had before. Because of the bad words, she becomes mute and the person goes back to the state he had before. He lost the merit that brought him the light of the soul from Binah. An impure spirit comes down from the side of the Snake and defiles the person with leprosy.

As we learned previously, the vapor that comes out of the mouth has the four elements of nature: Water, Fire, Air, and Earth. Words have a strong energy that spreads out in the world. It’s not a sin that can be removed easily from our ‘file’.

The Light of Binah that comes with the soul level of Neshama, connects to the Nefesh that is at the level of Malchut.
The skin is Malchut because it is the outer part of your body that connects to this world.
When the Light of Binah leaves the body, Malchut gets flawed and it becomes visible on the skin of the person.
It’s not necessarily a visible flaw and that is why a person with leprosy was brought to the priest to identify the issue and cure it.
We don’t have priests, Holy Temple, nor special energy to erase the sin of evil speech. To recover as much as possible from evil speech we need to read and utter out the sacred text of Torah, Psalms, and Zohar.
Silent fasting is a good way to support purification of the tongue. We can choose a day a month or a day a week or more to keep silent. Shabbat is a great day for that because we connect to Binah. It is always good to read the sacred text to purify the tongue and spread positive energy in the world.
