Daily Zohar # 3856 – Mishpatim – When you call mother, Binah
Daily Zohar 3856
128. אֶלָּא סוֹד עֶלְיוֹן הוּא, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁהִתְהַפֵּךְ וְעָלָה מִלְּמַטָּה לְמַעְלָה. בֵּן הָיָה בַּתְּחִלָּה, כֵּיוָן שֶׁעָלָה לְמַעְלָה, מִתְהַפֵּךְ הָאִילָן, וְנַעֲשֶׂה הוּא מֵעוֹלָם עֶלְיוֹן, וְשׁוֹלֵט עָלֶיהָ וְזוֹכֶה לְבִינָה.
129. בַּתְּחִלָּה כְּשֶׁעוֹלֶה אָדָם לִשְׁלֹשׁ עֶשְׂרֵה שָׁנָה, מַה כָּתוּב? (תהלים ב) ה’ אָמַר אֵלַי בְּנִי אַתָּה אֲנִי הַיּוֹם יְלִדְתִּיךָ. אָז הוּא לְמַטָּה מִמֶּנָּה. כֵּיוָן שֶׁעָלָה אֵלֶיהָ, הֲרֵי הוּא מִן הָעוֹלָם הָעֶלְיוֹן, שֶׁהֲרֵי הִתְעַלָּה לְדַרְגַּת יוֹסֵף, וְזֶה (וַדַּאי) זוֹכֶה לְבִינָה.

To explain the Yibum, the elder mentions the teaching of the sages about dreams. We learned that if a person sees himself and his mother in bed, he should expert a connection to Binah, as it is written;
“כִּי אִם לַבִּינָה תִקְרָא לַתְּבוּנָה תִּתֵּן קוֹלֶךָ.”
“For if (אם Mother) you call her understanding (Binah) be called; give your voice to wisdom (תבונה Tevuna).”
Binah is ‘Mother,’ and it would be enough to say, if you see your mother in a dream, then you can expect Binah. Then why does it say whoever comes on his mother?
He answers that this is a supreme secret because he ascended from below to above. He was first a son, meaning below her, and since he ascended above, the Tree turned, and he became from the upper world and ruled over her, and now he gained Binah.
When a person reaches thirteen years, he becomes a son to Malchut, as it is written;
“אֲסַפְּרָה אֶל חֹק יְהוָה אָמַר אֵלַי בְּנִי אַתָּה אֲנִי הַיּוֹם יְלִדְתִּיךָ.”
“I will declare the decree: YHVH has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.”
Malchut becomes his mother, and he is below her. When he makes unification with Malchut, he becomes her husband, meaning from the upper level, Zeir Anpin that is the level of Joseph, who is Yessod of Zeir Anpin. He merits Binah as Zeir Anpin has Mochin of Binah.
