This Zohar study is dedicated for the soul elevation of Salomon ben Benjamin
Zohar Shelach Lecha
One branch comes from the middle of the spring. The head of the Yeshivah says that when he came closer to that branch, it moved higher up and continued rising as he came closer. The foundation and the root of this branch are in the water. This branch covers worlds, and it has leaves with all colors seen in the world. It has fruits, but no one can tell what it is. The head of the Yeshiva said that when he asked the Mashiach about it, he told him that this is a concealed fruit to the man who has “a staff in his hand because of old age,” as we read in
“כֹּה אָמַר יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת עֹד יֵשְׁבוּ זְקֵנִים וּזְקֵנוֹת בִּרְחֹבוֹת יְרוּשָׁלִָם וְאִישׁ מִשְׁעַנְתּוֹ בְּיָדוֹ מֵרֹב יָמִים.”
“Thus says YHVH of hosts: ‘Old men and old women shall again sit In the streets of Jerusalem, Each one with his staff in his hand Because of great age.”
The Zohar adds that whoever has the merit to understand that will know.
Rabbi Ashlag explains that the spring comes from the Right that is Chessed, and each of the lines has three in each. The branch from the middle of the spring is the middle line of the Right line. The fruit is Chassadim from Atika Kadisha. Mashiach, in his answer, revealed that in the future, after connecting to all spiritual levels, they can enjoy the fruit that comes from Atika Kadisha.
There is one firmament spread above the branch in the middle of the spring. From this firmament, a dew moves to the spring and stops there. When a person looks at this firmament from afar, he sees the sky blue color, closer it looks red, even closer it looks like green, more closer it looks like white that nothing like it in this world. The dew from the firmament is absorbed by the branch and makes a fruit that grows. The firmament spins more than what the eyes can see.
The dew is the aspect of the letters יהו YHV of the name of Zeir Anpin, Middle column. The spelling of the letter, יוד-הא-ואו has the numerical value of 39, same as ‘טל’ that means ‘Dew’ in Hebrew. As we read above, the ‘dew’ comes from the highest level of the world of Atzilut. It will flow down to our world, Malchut, which is the lower H of the name. The Light that is called ‘dew’ would fill up the world with water (Chassadim) from the ‘spring’ that is in the south wall (Chessed) of the Holy Temple (Connection to Keter). From the middle branch that is the middle of the Right column, the light would flow to the world and activate the Resurrection.
