Holy Zohar text. Daily Zohar -412.

Tikkun 21 – 153

Genesis 1:9 “וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים, יִקָּווּ הַמַּיִם מִתַּחַת הַשָּׁמַיִם אֶל-מָקוֹם אֶחָד, וְתֵרָאֶה, הַיַּבָּשָׁה”
“And God said: ‘Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear.”

Malchut is called ‘dry land’ as it has no energy of its own. Water is the aspect of the endless light that nourishes the whole world. This light is called circular light. The verse above describes the process that transformed the circular light into a line. This line is a restricted channel of the Sefirot of Zeir Anpin, which is the aspect of “waters under the heavens”.

Malchut is considered poor because it needs to connect to Zeir Anpin to draw ‘water’ to sustain itself.
The rivers that come out of the Garden of Eden (Genesis 2:10) are channels for us to draw waters/light to the world.
When Israel was disconnected from the system with negative actions, the rivers dried out and the Holy Temple got destroyed twice.

Next Daily Zohar discusses the action of Tzedaka to bring the water to the rivers and nourish the world.
