Daily Zohar # 3436 – Ha’azinu – Is your face white or red?
When the face of Zeir Anpin illuminates with white, meaning the Light of Chessed from Atika, it covers the red that is Chokmah on the Left, and everything is found illuminated.
“יָאֵר יְהוָה פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ וִיחֻנֶּךָּ.”
“YHVH make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you;”
And when the wicked are many, and judgments hang in the world, the Lights are blocked and do not shine. And the red, which is judgment, spreads in the face and covers over the white which is mercy, and then everything is in judgment. Then it is written, Psalms 34:17
“פְּנֵי יְהוָה בְּעֹשֵׂי רָע לְהַכְרִית מֵאֶרֶץ זִכְרָם.”
“The face of YHVH is against those who do evil, To cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.”
And that is why the face is a testimony to its inner light.
Many angels with forces of protection wait for the white and red colors of the face. When the white color that represents Chessed shines, all the worlds filled up with this color, and joy spreads all over. When the red color is dominant on the face then everything takes on the red color, which is judgment.
The beard begins to be visible from the beginning of the ears on the two sides of the face that are called ‘two apples’. The roots of the black hair of the beard of Zeir Anpin draw the light from the beard of Atika, which is the light of Chokmah that is called fragrance.
