Daily Zohar 3876
109. וּבְסִדּוּר הַתְּפִלָּה, בְּאוֹתוֹ הַתִּקּוּן שֶׁל תְּפִלַּת מְיֻשָּׁב, מַתְקִינִים אֶת עַלְמוֹתֶיהָ וְכָל אֵלּוּ שֶׁלָּהּ. וּמִתְקַשְּׁטוֹת כָּל עַלְמוֹתֶיהָ, וְאַחַר כָּךְ הַכֹּל מְתֻקָּנִים וּמְסֻדָּרִים. וּכְשֶׁמַּגִּיעִים לֶאֱמֶת וְיַצִּיב, אָז הַכֹּל מְתֻקָּנִים, הִיא וְעַלְמוֹתֶיהָ, עַד שֶׁמַּגִּיעִים לְגָאַל יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְאָז צָרִיךְ לַעֲמֹד הַכֹּל עַל מְקוֹמָם.
110. מִשּׁוּם שֶׁכַּאֲשֶׁר מַגִּיעַ אָדָם לֶאֱמֶת וְיַצִּיב וְהַכֹּל מְתֻקָּן, עַלְמוֹתֶיהָ נוֹטְלוֹת אוֹתָהּ, וְהִיא נוֹטֶלֶת אֶת עַצְמָהּ לַמֶּלֶךְ הָעֶלְיוֹן. כֵּיוָן שֶׁמַּגִּיעִים לְגָאַל יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֲזַי הַמֶּלֶךְ הַקָּדוֹשׁ הָעֶלְיוֹן נוֹסֵעַ בְּדַרְגוֹתָיו וְיוֹצֵא לְקַבֵּל אוֹתָהּ.
Continued from previous DZ
He asks, what is the meaning of “יְבִיאֶהָ” “let him bring it,” and answers, we learn from this the secret of prayer. A man who fears his master and sets his heart and will in the prayer, he makes a supernal correction. The prayer starts with songs and praises that the supernal angels above say. In the same order of the praises Israel makes below, Malchut beautifies herself as a woman adorned herself to meet her husband.
In the sequence of the prayer that is done while sitting, when we enter the world of B’riah, that begins with the blessing “יוצר אור ובורא חושך” “Who forms light and create darkness” until the Amida prayer, the seven maids of Malchut adorn themselves with Malchut. After the Shema, when reaching “אמת ויציב” “Truth and certain,” the preparation of Malchut and her seven maids is completed. They are now ready for the final elevation. When arriving at the blessing “גאל ישראל” “Blessed are you, YHVH, who delivered Israel.” everyone stands in their place.
After the person reaches “אמת ויציב” “Truth and certain,” and everything is ready, the maids carry Malchut, and she carries herself to the supernal King, who is Zeir Anpin. When reaching “גאל ישראל” “who delivered Israel,” the Holy King travels in his levels, meaning illuminating the three lines, which is the secret of ‘Traveling,’ welcome her, the Malchut.
our prayers create movements of spiritual forces that elevate Malchut, the Shechina, for unification with Zeir Anpin. It happens during the Amida prayer.
Friday would be a good day to make a ** Donation, especially if you didn’t donate in the past week. Giving on Friday, which is an aspect of Yessod, expands the vessel for the Light and honor of Shabbat.
** Your donation doesn’t have to be given to the same place every week. You can alternate or split your donation among those who benefit you spiritually.
