Daily Zohar # 4081 – Noach – Breathing Light
Daily Zohar 4081
126. [אָז] כְּשֶׁמְּאִירָה הַמַּחֲשָׁבָה וְלֹא נוֹדַעַת [יָדוּעַ] מִמִּי שֶׁמְּאִירָה, אָז מִתְלַבֶּשֶׁת וְנִסְתֶּרֶת לְתוֹךְ הַבִּינָה וּמְאִירָה לְמִי שֶׁמְּאִירָה, וְנִכְנָסִים זֶה בָּזֶה, עַד שֶׁכֻּלָּם נִכְלָלִים כְּאֶחָד.

These palaces are not lights, not spirits, and not souls, and there is no one standing in them. The nine lights of the three heads of Arich Anpin that is called ‘thought,’ are all standing there with the desire to chase the nine palaces that stand in the place of the unknown head (רדל”א, רישא דלא אתידע). The palaces are beyond the reach of the nine lights and cannot be part of the will or the supernal thought. They try to reach and hold but can’t.
The secrets of faith and lights from the supernal thought are called Endless, where there is no definition of desire or thought.
This Zohar discussion is about the highest levels of the world of Atzilut, which is at the border of the Endless. The desire that is not called desire or thought is to open to the Endless, which is the source of their lights and vessels.
In simple words, we can think of this process as the action of breathing in this world. We inhale air with the desire to take in the life force, but then we feel life and wish to take more of it. We have to exhale before taking the next breath in. Our desire that comes from an unknown source is to ‘touch’ again the life force, so the action of breathing is ‘automated’ to sustain our lives in this world.
The Endless sustains all worlds, from Atzilut to the world of Action. If the Endless had an open connection to any of the lower worlds, Atzilut included, they would cease to exist because they would be swallowed and canceled by the Light of the Endless that created them.
When the unknown thought spreads light from the unknown source, it is dressed in Binah that illuminates the Light to the levels below it. Binah receives the light of Chokmah, which is dressed with the light of Chassadim to be one with Binah. Then all the Lights, together with Zeir Anpin and Nukva, become one.
