Daily Zohar # 3563 – Yitro – With unification comes blessings
“וְגַם אֲנִי אַכֶּה כַפִּי אֶל כַּפִּי וַהֲנִחֹתִי חֲמָתִי אֲנִי יְהוָה דִּבַּרְתִּי.”
“I also will smite My hand to the other hand, And I will cause My fury to rest; I, YHVH, have spoken.”
This verse describes the situation when Israel loses their blessings when they are in conflicts, and separated.
The blessings come to them when they have a unification of Right and Left that connects them to the upper three Sefirot and draw blessings.
When the Israelites are in separation, the other nations can draw from the same source of blessings through the Left column.
When they come in unity we read in Numbers 7:14
“כַּף אַחַת עֲשָׂרָה זָהָב מְלֵאָה קְטֹרֶת.”
“one gold pan (כַּף) of ten shekels, full of incense;”
One-pan ‘כַּף’ (hand) of ten, implies the unification of the Right hand and the Left hand together as one. This is the secret of ‘Man created in God’s image’, ‘male (Right) and female (Left) he created them’, as one.
“עוֹר וּבָשָׂר תַּלְבִּישֵׁנִי וּבַעֲצָמוֹת וְגִידִים תְּסֹכְכֵנִי.”
“Clothe me with skin and flesh, And knit me together with bones and sinews?”
The Zohar asks what is man and his essence And answers that man is not skin, flesh, bones, and sinews, but only his soul.
The corporeal elements are just garments and tools for the soul. When a man passes away, he removes the garments he wore in this world.
The skin, flesh, and the other garments of the soul are in the secret of the supernal wisdom.
The skin is like the covering above as we read in Psalms 104:2
“עֹטֶה אוֹר כַּשַּׂלְמָה נוֹטֶה שָׁמַיִם כַּיְרִיעָה.”
“Who covers with light as with a garment, Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain.”
The ram skin and other fine skins are the external garments that cover the extensions of the heavens.
“וְעָשִׂיתָ מִכְסֶה לָאֹהֶל עֹרֹת אֵילִם מְאָדָּמִים וּמִכְסֵה עֹרֹת תְּחָשִׁים מִלְמָעְלָה.”
“You shall also make a covering of ram skins dyed red for the tent, and a covering of badger skins above that.”
The ‘curtains’ is the membrane that covers the flesh that is inner, and the skin is on the outside.
