Daily Zohar # 3475 – Noah – Useful goat
103. כְּמוֹ שֶׁזְּרוֹעַ שְׂמֹאל לְמַעְלָה אוֹחֶזֶת בָּהּ וּמִתְעוֹרֵר כְּנֶגְדָּהּ בְּאַהֲבָה, כָּךְ גַּם יֵשׁ לְמַטָּה. [וָוֵי הָעַמּוּדִים כֻּלָּם עוֹמְדִים אֵיבָרִים לְהֵאָחֵז זֶה בָּזֶה וּלְהִתְקַשֵּׁר זֶה בָּזֶה קִשְׁרֵי הָאֱמוּנָה צַד הַקְּדֻשָּׁה מִצַּד שֶׁל רוּחַ טֻמְאָה שֶׁהוּא סוֹד הַנָּחָשׁ שֶׁלְּמַטָּה]. נָחָשׁ זֶה הוּא זְרוֹעַ שְׂמֹאל שֶׁל רוּחַ הַטֻּמְאָה, וְאוֹחֵז בּוֹ מִי שֶׁרוֹכֵב עָלָיו, וְקָרֵב לַלְּבָנָה וּמוֹשֵׁךְ אוֹתָהּ בֵּינֵיהֶם [נ”א בִּדְבֵקוּת] שֶׁל דְּבֵקוּת וְנִטְמֵאת.
104. וְאָז יִשְׂרָאֵל לְמַטָּה מַקְרִיבִים שָׂעִיר, וְאוֹתוֹ נָחָשׁ נִמְשָׁךְ אַחַר אוֹתוֹ הַשָּׂעִיר, וְהַלְּבָנָה נִטְהֶרֶת וְעוֹלָה לְמַעְלָה וּמִתְקַשֶּׁרֶת לְמַעְלָה לְהִתְבָּרֵךְ, וּפָנֶיהָ מְאִירִים מַה שֶּׁנֶּחְשְׁכָה לְמַטָּה.
Just as there is a secret of the forms of man’s organs, that is, Zeir Anpin, and its corrections, so there is a secret of the forms of the organs of the female of Zeir Anpin, and her corrections. The difference between them is only in the hue, which is the Green hue for Zeir Anpin, and the Red for the female. The forms of the body parts are equal for both, and so it is below Atzilut. There is the secret another ‘man’ from the side that is below the moon. It means that the lower levels receive from the levels above them.
The love that is awakened above impact the levels below.
Just as the left arm above in Z”A holds it in the female, and awakens against it in love. So there is below, from the Left, the Snake, which is the spirit of impurity, he came near to the moon, teh female, and draw her to him, meaning he sucked the energy from the female, from the place of the unification.
The female below has the aspect of the Tree of Knowledge Good and Bad. It allows the Snake to connect to the ‘Bad’ side that is left of the female and inject impurity. When that happens the female cannot unify above and draw sustenance for the world.
When Israel brings the sacrifice of the goat for a sin-offering on Rosh Chodesh, the Snake follows the goat, leaving the female alone. She then is able to restore its purity, and ascend above for unification with Zeir Anpin to receive light of mercy and blessings from Binah.
Since the Snake revealed the point of judgment in the female, he can connect to her again but his desire for the Light of the Left, stops him from spoiling the connection. From adversary he turned to be advocat.
The upper ‘Tree’ that is the ten sefirot of Atzilut is in a pure state. The worlds below emanat from Atzilut with similar ‘body parts’ that is teh aspect of the structure of the Sefirot. The Light in the lower worlds/levels is always less that the Light above it.
The female is at the lowest level of the Tree and she represents the greatest desire for the Light. That desire is aspect of the Left and judgment. The Snake that comes from the ‘dark-side’ that is desire can connect to the female, Malchut, drains its light, and ‘ground’ her. The sacrifice of the goat creates a connection that opens a bridge to Binah and restore the Light in Malchut.
