Daily Zohar 3845
145. אָמַר לוֹ, וַהֲרֵי מִכָּאן לָמַדְנוּ, שֶׁכָּתוּב לִוְיָתָן זֶה יָצַרְתָּ לְשַׂחֶק בּוֹ, מַשְׁמָע שֶׁאָמַר זֶה, וְזֶה וְזֹאת הֵם יְדוּעִים. אָמַר רַבִּי אַבָּא, שְׁנֵיכֶם יָפֶה אֲמַרְתֶּם, וְזֶה שֶׁל רַבִּי יְהוּדָה דַּוְקָא יָפֶה, וְהַכֹּל עָתִיד הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא לְהִתְעַנֵּג בָּהֶם לַצַּדִּיקִים. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב (ישעיה נח) אָז תִּתְעַנַּג עַל ה’.
146. אָמַר רַבִּי אַבָּא, כַּמָּה אֲלָפִים וְכַמָּה רְבָבוֹת שֶׁל מַחֲנוֹת קְדוֹשִׁים יֵשׁ לַקָּדוֹשׁ-בָּרוּךְ-הוּא: בַּעֲלֵי פָּנִים עֶלְיוֹנִים, בַּעֲלֵי עֵינַיִם, בַּעֲלֵי כְּלֵי זַיִן, בַּעֲלֵי הַיְלָלָה, בַּעֲלֵי הַיְבָבָה, בַּעֲלֵי רַחֲמִים, בַּעֲלֵי דִין, וּמֵעַל כֻּלָּם הִפְקִיד אֶת הַגְּבִירָה לְשַׁמֵּשׁ בַּהֵיכָל שֶׁלְּפָנָיו.

Rabbi Yitzchak says that there is a unification that never separates on the most high level. This is the secret of the unification of the supernal Father and Mother and the aspect of the upper three Sefirot of Binah. Rabbi Yehuda says that those who have merits for the world to come, that is, Binah, would be part of this supernal unification.
Rabbi Yehuda adds that we learned, “This Leviathan
which you have made to play there” (Psalm 104:26) is Yessod. ‘This’ ‘זה’ as in ‘This Leviathan’ (male) and ‘That’ ‘זאת’ (female) are Yessod and Malchut so even if a person doesn’t have merits to be in the higher level of Binah, he is still receiving from the supernal unification.
Rabbi Aba commended Rabbi Yitzchak and Rabbi Yehuda for their words and said, the Holy One Blessed be He prepare everything to give pleasures to the Tzadikim in the future, as it is written;
“אָז תִּתְעַנַּג עַל יְהוָה וְהִרְכַּבְתִּיךָ עַל במותי [בָּמֳתֵי] אָרֶץ וְהַאֲכַלְתִּיךָ נַחֲלַת יַעֲקֹב אָבִיךָ כִּי פִּי יְהוָה דִּבֵּר.”
“Then you shall delight yourself in YHVH, And I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth, And feed you with the heritage of Jacob, your father. The mouth of YHVH has spoken.”
Rabbi Aba said that the Holy One Blessed be He has many thousands and many tens of thousands of holy camps to serve under the command of the Shechina in his palace, Malchut. Some with the supernal face, some with eyes, some with weapons, some with cries, some with trumpets, some with mercy, some with justice.
Even if we don’t achieve a level of Tzadik, we can earn merits and a share for the world to come. We do our best, and Hashem rewards us according to our built vessel and the Light we drew with our good deeds. Each person according to their efforts.
