Tikkun 21 – 114
(Continuing previous Daily Zohar subject # 366 on)
Jonah 2:2 “ וַיִּתְפַּלֵּל יוֹנָה, אֶל-יְהוָה אֱלֹהָיו, מִמְּעֵי, הַדָּגָה.”
“Then Jonah prayed to YHVH his God out of the fish’s belly”
The lowest levels of the negativity is represented by the word דגה, pronounced Dagah, and means fish but in a female form. The letter H ה, for the H of Malchut, is added דג to represent the vessel/female aspect.
God removed a lot of the negativity, Dagah, in the first plague, blood.
In Exodus 7:18 God promised to remove the negativity from Egypt with the plagues
“ וְהַדָּגָה אֲשֶׁר-בַּיְאֹר תָּמוּת, וּבָאַשׁ הַיְאֹר”
“And the fish that are in the river shall die, and the river shall become foul”
In Exodus 7:21 the promised kept “ וְהַדָּגָה אֲשֶׁר-בַּיְאֹר מֵתָה, וַיִּבְאַשׁ הַיְאֹר’
“And the fish that were in the river died; and the river became foul,”
The lower levels are home for the impure system. The Erev Rav came with the Israelites because of the miracles that they saw in Egypt but the correction process was not comfortable for them. They were still connected to the material world they experienced in Egypt.
Numbers 11:5 “זָכַרְנוּ, אֶת-הַדָּגָה, אֲשֶׁר-נֹאכַל בְּמִצְרַיִם, חִנָּם”
“We remember the fish, which we used to eat in Egypt for free (without earning)”
The Erev Rav are still among us, still seeking the ‘free’ fish, still after our gold and leading us in the wrong direction (golden calf) that separates us from the true light of unity and unconditional love to each other. They may talk about Mashiach but fear of his coming.
The Zohar explains that at the time of The Redemption the miracles of the Exodus will be repeated.
Micha 7:15 “כִּימֵי צֵאתְךָ, מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם, אַרְאֶנּוּ, נִפְלָאוֹת”
“As in the days of your coming forth out of the land of Egypt will I show him wonders”
Like when God removed the lowest level, Dagah, with the first plague of blood, he will wipe them out when Mashiach comes.
