Daily Zohar 3812
111. וּמִשּׁוּם כָּךְ הִתְאַבְּלוּ עֶלְיוֹנִים וְתַחְתּוֹנִים, עַל שֶׁנִּתַּן הַשִּׁלְטוֹן לַקֵּץ הַזֶּה שֶׁל הַשְּׂמֹאל. וּמִשּׁוּם כָּךְ, כֵּיוָן שֶׁהַמַּלְכוּת הַקְּדוֹשָׁה, מַלְכוּת הַשָּׁמַיִם נִכְנְעָה, וּמַלְכוּת הָרִשְׁעָה [הָאַחֶרֶת] הִתְגַּבְּרָה, [אָז] יֵשׁ לְכָל אָדָם לְהִתְאַבֵּל עִמָּהּ וּלְהִכָּנַע עִמָּהּ, וּמִשּׁוּם שֶׁכַּאֲשֶׁר הִיא תִזְדַּקֵּף וְהָעוֹלָם יִתְחַדֵּשׁ הוּא יִתְחַדֵּשׁ עִמָּהּ, שֶׁכָּתוּב (ישעיה סו) שִׂישׂוּ אִתָּהּ מָשׂוֹשׂ כָּל הַמִּתְאַבְּלִים עָלֶיהָ.

“to the land of Israel: ‘An end!” refers to the end on the Right. “upon the four corners of the land” refers to the end on the Left that is the end of the Evil Inclination. The end on the right is related to the Good Inclination.
When the sins increase in the world, a decree is set and the evil side has given permission to rule and destroy the house and Temple of Hashem. It is written;
“כֹּה אָמַר אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה רָעָה אַחַת רָעָה הִנֵּה בָאָה.”
““Thus says YHVH GOD: “An evil, a singular evil, behold, it has come!”.
When troubles come one after the other, they are connected and seen as one.
When the reign was given to the Left, the levels above and below were mourning because the Malchut, Kingdom of Holiness, was brought down, humiliated and the evil kingdom took control.
Every person should mourn with her, with the Holy Kingdom, and be humbled with her. And for this, when the holy kingdom rise again, and the world rejoices, he will also be happy with her, that it is written;
“שִׂמְחוּ אֶת יְרוּשָׁלִַם וְגִילוּ בָהּ כָּל אֹהֲבֶיהָ שִׂישׂוּ אִתָּהּ מָשׂוֹשׂ כָּל הַמִּתְאַבְּלִים עָלֶיהָ.”
“Rejoice with Jerusalem, And be glad with her, all you who love her; Rejoice for joy with her, all you who mourn for her;”
We live in the days when the evil side has almost total control over the Holy Kingdom.
The sages say that the generation that the Holy Temple was not built in its days, has the responsibility as if they destroyed it.
Why are we responsible for the destruction of the Holy Temple?
Hashem is ready to bring it down the Third and everlasting Holy Temple but we are the ‘vessel’ that is supposed to hold its light. This vessel is impure and broken because we allowed negativity to grow and have control.
Feeling sad and mourning for the lack of the Holy Temple and its light, make us like a broken vessel in a pure state because the negative side cannot connect to a broken vessel.
If we imagine a feeling of an endless love that touched us and left, we can have a tiny idea about the feeling when the everlasting Holy Temple appears in the world to make a permanent dwelling for Hashem and the Shechina.
Their unification in this world is a great love that we can experience.
Reading Song of Songs can give us a clue about the great love that can be expressed in this world when the Shechina welcomes her ‘husband’.
