Daily Zohar 3984
192. וְרַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן לָקַח הַפִּתְקָה וְרָאָה מַה שֶּׁרָאָה בַּסּוֹדוֹת שֶׁשָּׁם כָּל אוֹתוֹ יוֹם. בַּלַּיְלָה רָאָה נֵר, וְנָפְלָה עָלָיו שֵׁנָה, וְנִרְדַּם עַד הַבֹּקֶר. כְּשֶׁהֵאִיר הַיּוֹם קָם, וּפָרְחָה אוֹתָהּ פִּתְקָה מִמֶּנּוּ, וְהִנֵּה שְׁנֵיהֶם בָּאִים. אָמַר לוֹ, עֲמֹד רַבִּי, אַשְׁרֵי חֶלְקְךָ. עֲמֹד. בִּגְלָלְךָ רָאִינוּ וְזָכִינוּ לְכַמָּה סְתָרִים עֶלְיוֹנִים, כַּמָּה חֶדְוָה הֶרְאוּ לָנוּ כְּשֶׁנָּתְנוּ רְשׁוּת לְגַלּוֹת לְךָ כָּל מַה שֶּׁאַתָּה רוֹצֶה. רֹאשׁ הַיְשִׁיבָה הָעֶלְיוֹנָה יָצָא אֵלֵינוּ וְאָמַר: שַׁאֲלוּ בִשְׁלוֹם בַּר יוֹחַאי, מְקוֹמוֹ שֶׁל בַּר יוֹחַאי הֲרֵי פָּנוּי לוֹ מִכַּמָּה יָמִים, אֵין מִי שֶׁיִּקְרַב אֵלָיו, אַשְׁרָיו!
Zohar Shelach Lecha
Continued from previous DZ
And instantly the one that flew away (#190) came back to them. He said to them, I was ready to enter and they were all sitting in one circle. They were discussing the judgment of one man that was standing at the entrance of the Garden of Eden, and the Cherubs held him and did not let him enter. He was in sorrow and was screaming. All the Tzadikim that were there heard him. Now all members of the Yeshiva gathered together to enter the King Mashiach to review his judgment. I came to inform you that my friend should go there, for a proclamation has passed among all the members of the Yeshiva, to gather together for the Mashiach. One of the messengers took a note to give to Rabbi Shimon and told him, read and study this until we come back to you. Then both of them flew away.
And Rabbi Shimon took the note and saw what he saw in the secrets which were there all that day. At night, he saw a candle and fell asleep until morning. When daylight dawned, the note flew away from him. The two messengers came back and told him, Rabbi, “Blessed is you, rise up.” For you, we merit seeing some supernal secrets. How much joy they showed us when they gave us permission to reveal to you everything you want. The head of the upper Yeshiva came out to us and told us to ask for the son of Yochai, for his place is already vacant for him from a few days ago, and there is no one to approach his place, blessed is he.
The messengers from the spiritual world could travel back and forth in an instant. At the same time, they tell about events that seem to have taken a much longer time. Time exists in the world of Malchut, not in the spiritual levels. That is why the ‘messengers’ that visited Rabbi Shimon could fly up and back in an instant.
When we close our eyes we can travel from one place to another in an instant, we can even recall the experiences of our senses in that place.
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.
