Daily Zohar # 3748 – Beresheet – Let the earth sprout vegetation
“מִי מָדַד בְּשָׁעֳלוֹ מַיִם וְשָׁמַיִם בַּזֶּרֶת תִּכֵּן וְכָל בַּשָּׁלִשׁ עֲפַר הָאָרֶץ וְשָׁקַל בַּפֶּלֶס הָרִים וּגְבָעוֹת בְּמֹאזְנָיִם.”
“Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, Measured heaven with a span And calculated the dust of the earth in a measure? Weigh the mountains in scales And the hills in a balance?”
“Who” in Hebrew ‘מי’ from the name אלהים that is Binah. The letters אלה from the name fell to Zeir Anpin and Nukva during the process of ‘Measured the waters’ that is the gathering of the lower water, Malchut that was elevated to Binah, the upper waters.
This process brought the Mochin from Binah to Zeir Anpin and formed the name יוד-הא-ואו-הא.
“וְקָרָא זֶה אֶל זֶה וְאָמַר קָדוֹשׁ קָדוֹשׁ קָדוֹשׁ יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת מְלֹא כָל הָאָרֶץ כְּבוֹדוֹ.”
“And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the YHVH of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!”
The three ‘Holy’ is the aspect of gathering the waters into one place that is Yessod of Zeir Anpin and the secret of the name “יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת” “YHVH of Hosts.”
“The whole earth is full of His glory” and “and let the dry land appear” (Genesis 1:9) is the revealed world and the lower ה H of Malchut. The names of the upper unification “יְהוָֹה אֱלֹהֵינוּ יְהוָֹה” revealed in the lower world with the names כוזו-במוכסז-כוזו
The lower name is one letter ahead of the upper name. The י is כ below, and the ה is ו below, the ו becomes ז below and so on.
“וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים תַּדְשֵׁא הָאָרֶץ דֶּשֶׁא עֵשֶׂב מַזְרִיעַ זֶרַע עֵץ פְּרִי עֹשֶׂה פְּרִי לְמִינוֹ אֲשֶׁר זַרְעוֹ בוֹ עַל הָאָרֶץ וַיְהִי כֵן.”
“Then God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit according to their kind with seed in them”; and it was so.”
After the waters gathered in Yessod of Malchut and the unification of the upper and lower revealed it, Malchut can sprout out vegetation and trees bearing fruits.
In the same aspect, souls and angels can come out to the worlds to support unification with the upper Lights.
“מַצְמִיחַ חָצִיר לַבְּהֵמָה וְעֵשֶׂב לַעֲבֹדַת הָאָדָם לְהוֹצִיא לֶחֶם מִן הָאָרֶץ.”
“He causes the grass to grow for the livestock, And vegetation for the service of man, That he may bring forth food from the earth,”
The ‘livestock’ is the aspect of Malchut that lies over a thousand mountains. Malchut is in an incomplete state when she misses the connection to the upper three sefirot. It is as if Malchut is laying down without legs because her lower three sefirot of Netzach, Hod, and Yessod are missing the upper light that would make her ‘stands.’
The mountains are the aspect of Chessed, Gevurah, and Tiferet that also represent the patriarchs that connect her to the upper three Sefirot. Netzach, Hod, and Yessod are the children.
The ‘hay’ is the aspect of the angels that were created by a unification on the higher level. Since they were created on the second day under the rule of the Left, they become available for the benefit of Malchut that uses them and cancels them with fire that she has from the illumination of the Left that is called fire.
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.
