Daily Zohar # 3875 – Vayakhel – A willing heart receives more
Daily Zohar 3875
107. וּבֹא רְאֵה, בְּכָל יוֹם הַכָּרוֹז קוֹרֵא: כָּל בְּנֵי הָעוֹלָם, בָּכֶם עוֹמֵד הַדָּבָר הַזֶּה. וְזֶהוּ קְחוּ מֵאִתְּכֶם תְּרוּמָה לַה’. וְאִם תֹּאמְרוּ שֶׁהַדָּבָר קָשֶׁה עֲלֵיכֶם – כֹּל נְדִיב לִבּוֹ יְבִיאֶהָ.

He said, I also heard from the Holy Candle, about what is a Teruma (תרומה Donation). The donation given to the priest has two parts of a hundred. The Holy One Blessed be He reveals Himself in the holy levels that are the Ten Sefirot. We count them as one hundred because each sefira includes ten private Sefirot.
When we need to elevate Malchut, we cannot take her alone but unite her with her husband, Yessod. They are the two parts that should not be separated.
Every day, an announcer calls the people of the world, telling them that the connection to the Light of Hashem depends on them. That is why the Torah says;
“קְחוּ מֵאִתְּכֶם תְּרוּמָה לַיהוָה כֹּל נְדִיב לִבּוֹ יְבִיאֶהָ אֵת תְּרוּמַת יְהוָה זָהָב וָכֶסֶף וּנְחֹשֶׁת.”
‘Take from among you an offering to YHVH. Whoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it as an offering to YHVH: gold, silver, and bronze;.”
If it is hard to give, the Torah says, “Whoever is of a willing heart.”
The elevation is achieved when we unify Malchut, the aspect of the vessel, with Yessod filling the vessel with Light and allowing it to ascend.
The emphasis is on a “willing heart” because the heart that opens to give also opens to receive the Light.
The donations received from the people were used to build the Holy Tabernacle that would connect and serve all people. The Torah doesn’t say take by force because it benefits all but take from those with a willing heart. A generous heart has an open vessel that can connect and receive the Light.
Being forced to give frequently comes with attached criticism. Why? How much is needed? Maybe they don’t need much, etc. This criticism closes the heart and blocks the Light from coming in.
The channels of Light have the aspect of Yessod. The best connection and elevation to Yessod is when we give from our hearts with appreciation to the channel of Light that benefits us.
