Daily Zohar # 3780 – Chayei Sarah – The power of repentance
121. אַשְׁרֵיהֶם בַּעֲלֵי הַתְּשׁוּבָה, שֶׁהֲרֵי בְּשָׁעָה אַחַת בְּיוֹם אֶחָד [בְּפַעַם אַחַת] בְּרֶגַע אֶחָד קְרֵבִים לַקָּבָּ”ה, מַה שֶּׁלֹּא הָיָה כָּךְ אֲפִלּוּ לְצַדִּיקִים גְּמוּרִים שֶׁהִתְקָרְבוּ לַקָּבָּ”ה בְּכַמָּה שָׁנִים. אַבְרָהָם לֹא נִכְנַס בְּאוֹתָם הַיָּמִים הָעֶלְיוֹנִים עַד שֶׁהָיָה זָקֵן, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר. וְכֵן דָּוִד, שֶׁכָּתוּב (מלכים-א א) וְהַמֶּלֶךְ דָּוִד זָקֵן בָּא בַּיָּמִים. אֲבָל בַּעַל הַתְּשׁוּבָה מִיָּד נִכְנָס וְנִדְבָּק בַּקָּבָּ”ה.
122. רַבִּי יוֹסֵי אָמַר, שָׁנִינוּ, הַמָּקוֹם שֶׁבַּעֲלֵי הַתְּשׁוּבָה עוֹמְדִים בָּעוֹלָם הַהוּא, אֵין לְצַדִּיקִים גְּמוּרִים רְשׁוּת לַעֲמֹד בּוֹ, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁהֵם קְרוֹבִים לַמֶּלֶךְ יוֹתֵר מִכֻּלָּם, וְהֵם מוֹשְׁכִים עֲלֵיהֶם בִּרְצוֹן הַלֵּב יוֹתֵר וּבְכֹחַ רַב לְהִתְקָרֵב לַמֶּלֶךְ.
123. בֹּא רְאֵה, כַּמָּה מְקוֹמוֹת מְתֻקָּנִים לַקָּבָּ”ה בָּעוֹלָם הַהוּא, וּבְכֻלָּם בֵּית מוֹשָׁבִים לַצַּדִּיקִים, כָּל אֶחָד וְאֶחָד לְפִי דַרְגָּתוֹ כָּרָאוּי לוֹ.
Zohar Chayei Sarah
Happy are those who repent in one hour, one day, and even in one moment. They get close to the Holy One Blessed be He, in a way that even completes Tzadikim that work years to achieve closeness to Hashem.
Abrahamdidn’tt achieves the high levels only after he was old. Also, the same with King David as we read in 1 Kings 1:1″ וְהַמֶּלֶךְ דָּוִד זָקֵן בָּא בַּיָּמִים וַיְכַסֻּהוּ בַּבְּגָדִים וְלֹא יִחַם לוֹ” Now King David was old, advanced in years(Days); and they put covers on him, but he could not get warm”
Abraham and King David worked hard to achieve their level. A repentant gets a quick jump to the Holy One Blessed to be He and cling to him.
Rabbi Yossi said we have learned that in the same world where repentants stand, a complete righteous have no right to stand. Because a repentant is closer to the King than most, they attract abundance from above with their heart intention, and great power that draws them closer to the King.
The Holy One Blessed be He established several places in the world to come, and in all of them, there are dwellings for the righteous, each one according to his level as he deserves.
The source of the above statement is from the Talmud, tractate Berachot. Many commentaries and discussions were about it, trying to understand it. Knowing the spiritual system gives us a better understanding.
A righteous person works on himself for a long time, following the ways of the Torah and gradually elevating himself on the spiritual levels, coming closer to the Holy One Blessed be He.
When a person that was on the opposite side realizes with certainty his heart and mind that Hashem is in control of everything in this world and there is nothing but him, he connects immediately to the level of Keter. He feels the connection so powerful, and at that moment, everything in his past is burnt by the strong light of the high level connection.
He breaks free from the bondage of the other side that was benefiting from his negative actions.
A convert or a person on the path of Light is on a higher level than a person that was born with Israelites ID. The studies and the conversion process removes the Klipa that was using his soul to draw light to the other side.
Friday would be a good day to make a ** , especially if youdidn’tt 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 donationdoesn’tt have to be given to the same place every week. You can alternate or split your donation among those who benefit you spiritually.
