Tikkun 21 – 130
The Zohar tells us that the Shechina is the משכון of YHVH and that is why he dwells within us.
משכון, means pawn, pledge. The root of this word, שכן, means neighbor, dwelling, and Shechina. The understanding is that YHVH will come back for his pawn, pledge, dwelling.
Exodus 25:8 “ וְעָשׂוּ לִי, מִקְדָּשׁ; וְשָׁכַנְתִּי, בְּתוֹכָם”
“And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell (שכן) among them”
The Holy Ark and the Torah that is stored in, are the aspect of the dwelling place for YHVH. Every Israelite soul has a root in one of the letters in the Torah. That gives us constant connection to YHVH.
The seven candles of the Candelabra in the Holy Temple represent the seven sefirot. They serve as channels of the light to the Torah and the Shechina in Malchut.
On that it was said Proverb 6:23 “ כִּי נֵר מִצְוָה, וְתוֹרָה אוֹר;”
“For the precept is a candle, and the Torah is light,”
The candle is the vessel, which is Malchut and the Torah is its Light.
When we connect to the Torah with our deep studies, we light our candle.
