Daily Zohar 3788
101. וְנֶאֶסְפוּ שָׁמָּה כָל הָעֲדָרִים. לֹא כָתוּב וְנֶאֶסְפוּ שָׁמָּה הָעֲדָרִים, אֶלָּא כָּל הָעֲדָרִים. הַמַּחֲנוֹת הַקְּדוֹשִׁים לְמַעְלָה וְהַמַּחֲנוֹת הַקְּדוֹשִׁים לְמַטָּה. אֵלּוּ בְּשִׁירִים וְתִשְׁבָּחוֹת לְמַעְלָה, וְאֵלּוּ בִּתְפִלּוֹת וּבַקָּשׁוֹת לְמַטָּה. אֵלּוּ וְאֵלּוּ מִיָּד וְגָלֲלוּ אֶת הָאֶבֶן מֵעַל פִּי הַבְּאֵר. מְגַלְגְּלִים אוֹתָהּ וּמַעֲבִירִים אוֹתָהּ מִן הַקֹּדֶשׁ וּמִסְתַּלֶּקֶת מִן הַדִּין. מִיָּד וְהִשְׁקוּ אֶת הַצֹּאן. נוֹסְעִים מַלְאָכִים עֶלְיוֹנִים לְמַעְלָה, וְנוֹסְעִים יִשְׂרָאֵל לְמַטָּה.
102. אַחַר כָּךְ וְהֵשִׁיבוּ אֶת הָאֶבֶן, עַל פְּקֻדַּת הַבְּאֵר הַזּוֹ, שֶׁתִּהְיֶה מְעֻטֶּרֶת [מְזֻמֶּנֶת] לְפָנָיו וְלִתְבֹּעַ הַדִּין שֶׁל הָעוֹלָם, לְהַנְהִיג הָעוֹלָם בְּדִין, וְכָךְ צָרִיךְ, שֶׁהֲרֵי אֵין הָעוֹלָם יָכוֹל לַעֲמֹד אֶלָּא עַל דִּין, שֶׁהַכֹּל יִהְיֶה בֶּאֱמֶת וּזְכוּת.
103. כֵּיוָן שֶׁנִּשְׁלַם יַעֲקֹב, לֹא הִצְטָרֵךְ לָאֶבֶן הַזּוֹ סִיּוּעַ אַחֵר. מַה כָּתוּב? וַיִּגַּשׁ יַעֲקֹב וַיָּגֶל אֶת הָאֶבֶן. וַיָּגֶל וְגָלֲלוּ, וְלֹא כָתוּב וַיָּסֵר וְהֵסִירוּ, אֶלָּא [וַיָּגֶל] וְגָלֲלוּ, הַיְנוּ הָעִרְבּוּב שֶׁל הַשָּׂטָן שֶׁמְּעַרְבְּבִים אוֹתוֹ שֶׁלֹּא יוּכַל לְקַטְרֵג.
Continued from previous DZ
“וְנֶאֶסְפוּ שָׁמָּה כָל הָעֲדָרִים וְגָלֲלוּ אֶת הָאֶבֶן מֵעַל פִּי הַבְּאֵר וְהִשְׁקוּ אֶת הַצֹּאן וְהֵשִׁיבוּ אֶת הָאֶבֶן עַל פִּי הַבְּאֵר לִמְקֹמָהּ.”
“When all the flocks were gathered there, they would roll the stone from the mouth of the well and water the sheep. Then they would put the stone back in its place on the mouth of the well.”
Three flocks were mentioned previously, and here it says “All the flocks,” not ‘the flocks.’ The Zohar explains that ‘all’ indicates that all the Holy Camps above that are angels, together with the Holy Camps below that are righteous people. The angels above with singing and praises, together with the prayers and appeals of the righteous below, roll the stone from the well’s mouth.
They roll the stone from the holiness, and the judgment called ‘stone’ is removed. Immediately after, they water the sheep, and when the well is open, the supernal angels from above and Israel below take their part.
“Then they would put the stone back on the well.”
Following a command from the well, they put the stone back to its place to be ready to demand justice from the world. The world cannot exist without judgment that brings truth and justice.
When Jacob saw Rachel coming to the well, he understood that she was his soul mate, making him complete. For that reason, he could remove the stone from the well’s mouth alone without help from others.
“וַיְהִי כַּאֲשֶׁר רָאָה יַעֲקֹב אֶת רָחֵל בַּת לָבָן אֲחִי אִמּוֹ וְאֶת צֹאן לָבָן אֲחִי אִמּוֹ וַיִּגַּשׁ יַעֲקֹב וַיָּגֶל אֶת הָאֶבֶן מֵעַל פִּי הַבְּאֵר וַיַּשְׁקְ אֶת צֹאן לָבָן אֲחִי אִמּוֹ.”
“And it came to pass when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban, his mother’s brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother’s brother, that Jacob went near and rolled the stone from the well’s mouth, and watered the flock of Laban, his mother’s brother.”
The rolling to the stone has the aspect of ‘rolling’ the Sat-n, meaning confusing him so he won’t come up with accusations.
Three found their soul mates by a well. Isaac (Using Eliezer) met Rebbeka, Jacob met Rachel, and Moses met Tziporah. The well represents the source of Light in Malchut. It is a vessel that we need to remove ‘blockages’ to open before drawing nourishment from it.
The woman is the vessel that manifests blessings. It is the ‘job’ of the man to find his spouse and become complete. He has the obligation to get married and have children, not the woman.
Everyman has a well and a stone to remove. If the stone is too big, then the well is not for his reach. He should find a smaller well for his level and work to expand it to receive greater blessings. There are no small wells, but there are always stones that match different levels.
If a man is already attached to a well and the well is dry, meaning not producing nourishments, then the cause of dryness is the man that doesn’t draw support of angels from above for the well to fourish and nourish the flock.
The Zohar is a well of Light and it is a good place to find a match.
