Daily Zohar 3989
202. אִי רַבִּי, אִי רַבִּי, אִלְמָלֵא בַּר יוֹחַאי אַתָּה, לֹא נִמְסַר לְגַלּוֹת. זִוּוּג אוֹתוֹ עוֹלָם נַעֲשֶׂה פְרִי יוֹתֵר מִפְּרִי שֶׁנַּעֲשֶׂה בָּעוֹלָם הַזֶּה. בַּזִּוּוּג שֶׁלָּהֶם, בְּזִוּוּג אוֹתוֹ עוֹלָם, בָּעֶרְגָּה שֶׁלָּהֶם כְּאֶחָד, כְּשֶׁהַנְּשָׁמוֹת נִדְבָּקוֹת זוֹ בָּזוֹ, עוֹשׂוֹת פֵּרוֹת, וְיוֹצְאִים אוֹרוֹת מֵהֶם וְנַעֲשִׂים נֵרוֹת. וְהֵם הַנְּשָׁמוֹת לַגֵּרִים הַמִּתְגַּיְּרִים, וְכָל אֵלֶּה עוֹלִים לְהֵיכָל אֶחָד.
Zohar Shelach Lecha
Continued from previous DZ
The messenger from the upper world continues to report to Rabbi Shimon what he saw in the Garden of Eden.
And every night, they all come together. Because the time of unification is at midnight, whether in this world or the upper world. The unification in the upper world is the bond of one soul with another soul, light to light. The unification of this world is a body with another body. And all as it is proper, sex with its matching sex, body with its matching body. The palaces of four Matriarchs are called the palaces of confident daughters. And I did not merit to see them. Blessed are the righteous men and women who walk the righteous path in this world and merit all the pleasures of that world.
Ahh, Rabbi, If you were not the son of Yochai, it would not have been revealed. The unification in that world bears more fruit than when made in this world. When the souls cling to each other with their desire to join, they bring out lights that become candles, which are the souls of converts who would convert. And all those souls born of those unifications enter into one palace.
After midnight, especially on Friday, is the best time for a couple to unify with love. They make spiritual unification when connecting with their body but focusing on love at the soul level. It brings them closer to each other and draws the light of Binah (Garden of Eden) through the man who represents Zeir Anpin and into the woman, Malchut. This unification also draws from the original blessing God gave Adam and Eve on Friday, the day they were created.
The unification of husband and wife should be in silence and in the dark to have two souls together without physical distraction. What the eyes see in this world causes the soul to be ‘grounded.’ The couple should appreciate the moment because, at the spiritual level, they connect upper and lower, Zeir Anpin and Malchut. With that, they draw blessings and ‘fruitfulness’ into their lives, even if the unification does not result in creating new life.
