189. אַשְׁרֵי חֶלְקוֹ מִי שֶׁרוֹאֶה אוֹתוֹ, וְאַשְׁרֵי חֶלְקוֹ מִי שֶׁלֹּא רוֹאֶה אוֹתוֹ. אוֹי לְמִי שֶׁיִּזְדַּמֵּן כְּשֶׁיְּבַקֵּשׁ הָאַרְיֵה הַגָּדוֹל לְהִתְחַבֵּר עִם נְקֵבָתוֹ, כָּל שֶׁכֵּן כְּשֶׁיִּזְדַּוְּגוּ יַחַד. עַל אוֹתָהּ שָׁעָה כָּתוּב, (עמוס ג) אַרְיֵה שָׁאָג מִי לֹא יִירָא וְגוֹ’.
“קַדְּשׁוּ עָלֶיהָ מִלְחָמָה קוּמוּ וְנַעֲלֶה בַצָּהֳרָיִם אוֹי לָנוּ כִּי פָנָה הַיּוֹם כִּי יִנָּטוּ צִלְלֵי עָרֶב.”
“Prepare war against her; Arise, and let us go up at noon. Woe to us, for the day, goes away, For the shadows of the evening are lengthening.”
The Right column is Light of Chassadim and the aspect of day. The Left is darkness and the aspect of night. Each column has ten Sefirot, and when the Right is strong the upper three sefirot of the Left lose strength. The Right then takes control and creates the aspect of shadow so day and night can connect in the Center column.
When the Israelites sinned at the time the Holy Temple existed, the ‘shadows’ began to disappear. The Left got stronger and the Center column broke and the Right and Left got separated. This situation created an opening for the other side to bring the destruction of the Holy Temple.
“כִּי תְמוֹל אֲנַחְנוּ וְלֹא נֵדָע כִּי צֵל יָמֵינוּ עֲלֵי אָרֶץ.”
“For we were born yesterday, and don’t know that our days on earth are a shadow.”
This verse tells that when the Israelites in exile they are not aware that the Holy One Blessed be He wants them to see the ‘shadow’ to bring day and night join together and open gates of Light for the Third Holy Temple.
“אַרְיֵה שָׁאָג מִי לֹא יִירָא אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה דִּבֶּר מִי לֹא יִנָּבֵא.”
“A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken! Who can but prophesy?”
Happy are those who see the big revelation of Light with the coming of Mashiach and happy are those who won’t see him.
Woe to those who will be present when the great lion comes to mate with his female, especially when they have the unification.
This is about the time of the Final Redemption when Zeir Anpin and Malchut have the unification to open the gates of Light to the world.
A lion in a dream represents a man of authority and success. in general seeing it is good unless the lion is chasing you, then it means that you are in serious trouble.
If you see a lion in your dream say the verse above (Amos 3:8).
