Rabbi Shimon testifies on himself that all his life he was caring and protecting the world from experiencing judgments (צדק) and get burnt in its flames. He adds that after his passing each one in the world would be judged according to his deeds. In his generations there were Tzadikim but not on the level that can protect the people of the generation in all four directions of the world.
We learned that father and mother came out from ‘Atika’, the concealed ‘brain’. Zeir Anpin is dependent on Atika Kadisha and connects to it. Rabbi Shimon explains that when we follow his teaching we will find out that everything Atika alone.
Praised is the one that enters into the studies of this wisdom and comes out with the understanding that the path is the center column and no turns to Right or Left. Those who learned this wisdom without this understanding, it would have been better if they were not born.
“מִי חָכָם וְיָבֵן אֵלֶּה נָבוֹן וְיֵדָעֵם כִּי יְשָׁרִים דַּרְכֵי יְהוָה וְצַדִּקִים יֵלְכוּ בָם וּפֹשְׁעִים יִכָּשְׁלוּ בָם.”
“Who is wise? Let him understand these things. Who is prudent? Let him know them. For the ways of YHVH are right; The righteous walk in them, But transgressors stumble in them.”
We are studying the Idra Zuta, which is the last study Rabbi Shimon gave to his students before leaving the world. The study of the Idra Zuta is not easy, but I will do my best to make it easier to understand with more videos. Never give up. When you understand this wisdom, you are connected to the highest level of Keter that is called ‘Mazala’ where everything that is good comes to this world.
You can go back to the beginning of the Idra Zuta study, starting with DZ 1932
This is an early video I made about the three heads of Keter (sorry for the poor presentation) (https://dailyzohar.com/daily-zohar-2539/)
