Daily Zohar 4103
139. אָמַר רַבִּי חִיָּיא, בֹּא רְאֵה שֶׁאַבְרָהָם לֹא רָצָה לְהִתְעָרֵב עִם נְשׁוֹת הָעוֹלָם וּלְהִדָּבֵק בִּשְׁאָר הָעַמִּים עוֹבְדֵי כוֹכָבִים וּמַזָּלוֹת, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁנְּשׁוֹת שְׁאָר הָעַמִּים עוֹבְדֵי כוֹכָבִים וּמַזָּלוֹת הֵם מְטַמְּאוֹת אֶת הַגְּבָרִים שֶׁלָּהֶם וּלְאוֹתָם שֶׁנִּדְבָּקִים בָּהֶם. מִשּׁוּם שֶׁכְּשֶׁאַבְרָהָם יָדַע אֶת הַחָכְמָה, יָדַע הָעִקָּר וְהַשֹּׁרֶשׁ, וּמֵאֵיזֶה מָקוֹם יוֹצְאוֹת וּמְשׁוֹטְטוֹת רוּחוֹת טְמֵאוֹת בָּעוֹלָם, וְעַל כֵּן הִשְׁבִּיעַ אֶת עַבְדּוֹ שֶׁלֹּא יִקַּח אִשָּׁה לִבְנוֹ מִשְּׁאָר הָעַמִּים.
Zohar Chayei Sarah
Continued from previous DZ
Avraham came to know and adhere to his master properly after he proceeded with good deeds from the beginning. He merited higher supernal levels (days) and was blessed from the place where all the blessings come from, as it is written;
“וְאַבְרָהָם זָקֵן בָּא בַּיָּמִים וַיהוָה בֵּרַךְ אֶת אַבְרָהָם בַּכֹּל.”
“Now Abraham was old, well advanced in age; and YHVH had blessed Abraham in all things (בַּכֹּל).”
“In all things (בַּכֹּל)” is the place of the river whose waters never stop. That is, Yessod of a supreme father and mother whose union never ceases.
Abraham became the chariot of Chessed because he did good things for others. His tent was open for all to share food, drinks, and a place to sleep. אשל = אכילה, שתיה, לינה
For his generosity, Hashem blessed him with everything.
Father, Chokmah, and Mother, Binah, are in eternal unification to provide nourishment (water flow) to the worlds below. Yesod is the point of unification.
Avraham did not want to get mixed with the women of the world and become infected with the other nations who worship idolatry because the women of the other nations worship idolatry; they defile their husbands and those who cling to them.
When Abraham learned the wisdom, he knew the main reason, and the root of the source, that the spirits of impurity come out and wander in the world. Therefore, he made his servant swear that he would not take a wife for his son from the other nations.
Friday would be a good day to make a ** Donation, and support the Daily Zohar projects, 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.
