Daily Zohar # 3656 – Behaalotcha – The spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels
110. רֹאשׁ שֵׁנִי, שֶׁהוֹלֵךְ בָּרֹאשׁ הָרִאשׁוֹן, חֶשְׁבּוֹנוֹ חֲמִשִּׁים וְאַרְבָּעָה אֶלֶף וְאַרְבַּע מֵאוֹת, פְּרָט לְכָל הַמְמֻנִּים הַלָּלוּ שֶׁתַּחַת לְאַרְבָּעָה צְדָדִים שֶׁאֵין לָהֶם חֶשְׁבּוֹן. רֹאשׁ שְׁלִישִׁי, שֶׁהוֹלֵךְ אַחֲרֵיהֶם, חֲמִשִּׁים וְשִׁבְעָה אֶלֶף וְאַרְבַּע מֵאוֹת. כְּמוֹ שֶׁנּוֹטֵל הַיָּמִין, כָּךְ גַּם נוֹטֵל הַשְּׂמֹאל. כָּךְ גַּם מִלִּפְנֵיהֶם, כָּךְ גַּם מֵאַחֲרֵיהֶם.
111. כֵּיוָן שֶׁנּוֹסֵעַ רִאשׁוֹן – וְהוּרַד הַמִּשְׁכָּן. וְכָל הַלְוִיִּם אוֹמְרִים שִׁירָה. בַּעֲלֵי הַתִּשְׁבָּחוֹת כֻּלָּם מִצִּדּוֹ. וְאָז כָּתוּב, (יחזקאל א) כִּי רוּחַ הַחַיָּה בָּאוֹפַנִּים.
112. דֶּגֶל שֵׁנִי, מֶרְכָּבָה מְזֻיֶּנֶת, נֶשֶׁ”ר, אוּרִיאֵ”ל, דָּרוֹ”ם. וּשְׁנֵי מְמֻנִּים עִמּוֹ – שַׁמְשִׁיאֵ”ל, חַסְדִּיאֵ”ל. נֶשֶׁר זֶה עוֹלֶה, וְכָל בַּעֲלֵי הַכְּנָפַיִם מִלְּפָנָיו. כַּמָּה מֶרְכָּבוֹת עוֹלוֹת בְּכָל הַצְּדָדִים, כָּל אַחַת וְאַחַת בְּחֹזֶק הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ.
Continued from the previous study
From the right and the left, the camps come out in three heads. One head leads with 74,600 with the force of the right hand that was raised above them. Under them, some appointees rule uncountable lower levels with higher ones.
The second head leads with 54,400 besides the appointees below that go to four sides without count.
The third head follows behind with 57,400. They travel the same way, the right and the left lead in the front.
When the first head travels and the tabernacle is taken down for travel, the Levites sing songs, and those who make praises are all on the side of the first lead. Then it is written Ezekiel 1:20
“עַל אֲשֶׁר יִהְיֶה שָּׁם הָרוּחַ לָלֶכֶת יֵלֵכוּ שָׁמָּה הָרוּחַ לָלֶכֶת וְהָאוֹפַנִּים יִנָּשְׂאוּ לְעֻמָּתָם כִּי רוּחַ הַחַיָּה בָּאוֹפַנִּים.”
“Wherever the spirit wanted to go, they went, because there the spirit went; and the wheels were lifted together with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.”
The flag of the tribe of Yehudah was leading the first camps. The secret of the travels in the desert was to reveal the Light of Chokmah with the secret of the three lines. The Holy Tabernacle has the aspect of Malchut. Building it is the secret of the lower Chokmah, under the control of the Right alone. Erecting it was by revealing the Left line with the inclusion of Chassadim.
When the Tabernacle was taken down, the illumination of the Light of Chokmah that was in it was canceled. Then it returned to the Tabernacle when it was rebuilt with the Left line and the Chassadim of the Right.
The second flag was the camp of Reuven, the camp of the armed forces. They had the aspect of Eagle and the angel Uriel that rules the center line. He travels on the south side that is the Right line and Chessed. With Uriel two appointees, שַׁמְשִׁיאֵ”ל and חַסְדִּיאֵ”ל (please do not read the names). The Eagle rises, and with him all who have wings. Numerous camps rise from all sides, each of them according to the sun’s strength (שמש).
Yehudah is the center line, and Reuven is the Right line. Yehuda travels on the east side that is the center, but his light is from the Right that is Chessed, and the angel Michael.
Reuven travels on the south side that is the Right line, Chessed, and his light is considered the center line that is the aspect of the sun’s strength that also reveals the Left line.
Friday would be a good day to make a ** Donation, especially if you didn’t donate in the past week. Giving on Friday, which is an aspect of Yessod, expands the vessel for the Light and honor of Shabbat.
** Your donation doesn’t have to be given to the same place every week. You can alternate or split your donation among those who benefit you spiritually.
