Daily Zohar # 3466 – Beresheet – The dispute between the first and the second
45. חָכְמָתוֹ שֶׁל מֹשֶׁה, בָּזֶה הִסְתַּכֵּל וּבְמַעֲשֵׂה בְרֵאשִׁית הִשְׁגִּיחַ הִתְבּוֹנֵן. בְּמַעֲשֵׂה בְרֵאשִׁית הָיְתָה מַחֲלֹקֶת שְׂמֹאל עִם יָמִין, וּבְאוֹתָהּ מַחֲלֹקֶת שֶׁהִתְעוֹרֵר בּוֹ הַשְּׂמֹאל, יָצָא בּוֹ גֵּיהִנֹּם וְנִדְבַּק בּוֹ. הָעַמּוּד הָאֶמְצָעִי שֶׁהוּא יוֹם שְׁלִישִׁי, נִכְנַס בֵּינֵיהֶם וְהִפְרִיד הַמַּחֲלֹקֶת וְהִסְכִּים לִשְׁנֵי צְדָדִים. וְגֵיהִנֹּם יָרַד לְמַטָּה. וּשְׂמֹאל נִכְלַל בַּיָּמִין, וְהָיָה שָׁלוֹם בַּכֹּל.
“וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים יְהִי רָקִיעַ בְּתוֹךְ הַמָּיִם וִיהִי מַבְדִּיל בֵּין מַיִם לָמָיִם.”
“And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.”
The first day of Creation is the secret of the Right, Chessed. The second day was under the control of the Left that wanted to cancel the governance of the Right. The Right wanted to cancel the control of the Left and for that, a big dispute and division erupted on the second day.
The first day of Creation is Right and Chessed. It has complete form and includes all the days of the week, and the Sefirot below receive their Light from the first.
When the Left awakened against the Right, the fire of the anger from the Left that is darkness created Gehinnom from the Left side.
Whoever wishes to increase the power of the Left falls into Gehinnom that is attached to it.
With his wisdom, Moses looked into the work of Creation, and the separation between the Left and the Right that created Gehinnom.
The Center column that is the third day, Tiferet, came between the Right and the Left and removed the ‘dispute’/division. The Chassadim from Right that joined the Center overcame the Left, and Gehinnom was separated from the Left and went down. The vessels that were attached to Gehinnom went back to their places. The Light of Chokmah could illuminate the upper three sefirot of the Left after the Center brought them together. The Center accepted the Right to illuminate from above downward and the Left to illuminate from below upward. When this process completed, peace was made.
