Daily Zohar # 3768 – Lech Lecha – He is waiting for you after midnight
131. בֹּא רְאֵה, הָעוֹלָם שֶׁלְּמַעְלָה צָרִיךְ אֶת הִתְעוֹרְרוּתוֹ שֶׁל הָעוֹלָם הַתַּחְתּוֹן. וּכְשֶׁנִּשְׁמוֹת הַצַּדִּיקִים יוֹצְאוֹת מִן הָעוֹלָם הַזֶּה וְעוֹלוֹת לְמַעְלָה, כֻּלָּן מִתְלַבְּשׁוֹת בָּאוֹר שֶׁלְּמַעְלָה בִּדְמוּת נִכְבָּדָה, וּבָהֶם הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא מִשְׁתַּעֲשֵׁעַ וְתָאֵב לָהֶם, שֶׁהֵם פְּרִי מַעֲשָׂיו, וְעַל זֶה נִקְרְאוּ יִשְׂרָאֵל שֶׁיֵּשׁ לָהֶם נְשָׁמוֹת קְדוֹשׁוֹת בָּנִים לַקָּדוֹשׁ-בָּרוּךְ-הוּא, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (דברים יד) בָּנִים אַתֶּם לַה’ אֱלֹהֵיכֶם. בָּנִים וַדַּאי, פְּרִי מַעֲשָׂיו.
Zohar Lech Lecha
continued from previous DZ
Because the souls come from the deeds of Holy One Blessed be He, he comes every midnight to the Garden of Eden to have pleasure with the Tzadikim. The question is, with whom does he has charms? Is it the souls of the living or the deceased?
Rabbi Yossi says, with all of them. He is with those who dwell in the world of truth and those who dwell in this world.
The actions of the lower world awaken the upper world. When the souls of Tzadikim leave this world and rise to the Garden of Eden, they get dressed with supernal Light that is glorious and proper for the time that Holy One Blessed be He long for them and draw pleasures with them, because they are the fruits of his making. As it is written; (Deuteronomy 14:1), “You are the children of YHVH your God.”
After midnight, the Light of Chassadim is revealed. The Tzadikim in this world wake up to study and connect to the Holy One Blessed be He. With their studies, they create vessels that receive Light from above. These connections generate joy on the higher levels because it opens gates of Light to flow down to this world. Like a loving father, the Holy One Blessed waits for his children to open their vessels so that he can bring them fulfillment.
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.
