Daily Zohar # 4306 – Shelach Lecha – He’ll eat your flesh but not your soul.
Daily Zohar 4306
281. וַאֲפִלּוּ מִבְּשָׂרוֹ שֶׁהוּא מִצַּד זֶה, מֵרֵעַ לִפְנֵי הַמֶּלֶךְ הַקָּדוֹשׁ, שֶׁהוּא רַחוּם וְחַנּוּן. אֲבָל עַל שֶׁלּוֹ, רוּחַ הַקֹּדֶשׁ וּנְשָׁמָה קְדוֹשָׁה, אֵין עֶלְיוֹנִים וְתַחְתּוֹנִים יְכוֹלִים לִשְׁלֹט עָלָיו כְּלָל. וְעַל כָּךְ כָּל הָעֲלִילוֹת וְכָל מַה שֶּׁמַּסְטֶה אוֹתוֹ רָע, שֶׁחוֹשֵׁב לִשְׁלֹט עַל רוּחַ הַקֹּדֶשׁ וְאַחַר כָּךְ לֹא יָכוֹל, וְיָשׁוּב וְאוֹכֵל אֶת בְּשָׂרוֹ, מַה תּוֹעֶלֶת הָיָה לוֹ? וְעוֹד, שֶׁהֵם מְכַסִּים כֻּלָּם כְּמוֹ מְעֻרְפָּל חָזָק, וְאֵין שׁוֹכְכִים עֶלְיוֹנִים וְתַחְתּוֹנִים.
Zohar Shelach Lecha
Continued from previous DZ
(Some Zohar text is missing here)
The fool, who is the other side, embraces his hands with his bitterness and limitation and then inevitably eats his flesh because the other side does not have permission to control anything other than flesh. He enjoys all that he has done to bring mortality to the people. After that, he has no permission to enjoy anything except for what is controlled initially, the flesh, because the other side gives the flesh to the people. After that, he dances and rejoices like a fool without any awareness. He walks without purpose except consume the flesh, while he cannot touch anything else. He is the bitterness above and below. When Israel is in trouble, and their haters consume them up, they don’t have the strength in their good deeds to bring them out of the other side.
The Holy King resents allowing the other side to control the flesh because he is merciful and forgiving. As for what the Holy One, Blessed be He, owns, which is the Holy Soul, neither the supernal nor the lowers can control the soul. Therefore everything that was preserved by the evil one, the other side, who thought to contain the Holy Spirit, can’t do it, and he returns and eats flesh that is under his control. In the end, all his actions to control the soul were futile.
