Daily Zohar # 3978 – Shelach Lecha – Drawing shapes from the Garden of Eden
Daily Zohar 3978
178. אֵלֶּה כָּאן וְאֵלֶּה כָּאן, וְעוֹלִים וְיוֹרְדִים כְּמִקֹּדֶם. בְּאוֹתוֹ צַד דָּרוֹם יֵשׁ שְׁלֹשׁ מֵאוֹת וַחֲמִשִּׁים עַמּוּדִים מִכָּל מִינֵי מַרְגָּלִיּוֹת. וְאֵלֶּה אוֹתָם שֶׁמְּאִירִים תָּמִיד, וְנוֹטְפִים בְּשָׂמִים נִסְתָּרִים שֶׁלֹּא הִתְגַּלּוּ מֵעוֹלָם. אַרְבָּעָה אַגָּנִים בְּכָל עַמּוּד וְעַמּוּד נְעוּצִים. וּכְשֶׁאוֹתָם בְּשָׂמִים נוֹטְפִים מֵאוֹתָם עַמּוּדִים, נוֹפְלִים בָּהֶם, וּמִתְמַלְּאִים כָּל הָאַגָּנוֹת, וְלֹא יוֹצְאִים הַבְּשָׂמִים הַחוּצָה.
179. מֵאוֹתָם בְּשָׂמִים עֲתִידִים לֶעָתִיד לָבֹא לְהַקְטִיר בְּכָל יוֹם קְטֹרֶת לִפְנֵי הַמֶּלֶךְ הַקָּדוֹשׁ, שֶׁלֹּא יִהְיוּ מִכְּתִישַׁת בְּנֵי הָאָדָם. אוֹתָם בְּשָׂמִים לֹא יָדוּעַ עִקָּרָם, וּמִמֶּה הָיוּ, אֶלָּא מֵאוֹתָם עַמּוּדִים שֶׁנּוֹפְלִים שָׁם.
Zohar Shelach Lecha
Continued from previous DZ
One time a year, the Jordan River is Yessod of Malchut, joins the river that comes out of the Garden of Eden. From that main river spread four rivers, but the Jordan River joins the main river that is Yessod of Zeir Anpin. From its source, the Jordan river flows down to the ground of the Holy Temple which is Malchut of Malchut. The river stays there for three days, corresponding to the three lines, and when the river returns to its source, he leaves on the ground of the Holy Temple shapes that the Holy One Blessed be He makes in the Garden of Eden and conceals them in their place. (Original Zohar text is missing here).
(the beginning of this Zohar paragraph is missing here).
Those here and those here go up and down as before. On the south side, which is the Right line that is all Chessed, there are three hundred and fifty pillars of all kinds of precious stones that always illuminate. They drip perfumes that are never revealed. Four basins in each and every pillar. And when the perfumes drip from the pillars, they fall into the basins and fill them. But the fragrances don’t go out.
These perfumes will be used in the future as parts of the incense that would be burned daily in front of the Holy One Blessed, be He. They would not be man-made, but from the drips that fall from the columns.
Some deep secrets from the Garden of Eden are concealed in these paragraphs. The missing Zohar text makes it harder to understand these paragraphs. Nevertheless, just as by holding some links of a chain, it is as if we holding the entire chain, even if it is on a spiritual level.
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.
