Daily Zohar 4385
159. אַחַר כָּךְ כְּשֶׁשְּׁנֵיהֶם נִתְקָנִים, נַעֲשֶׂה אוֹתוֹ אוֹר לָבָן כִּסֵּא לָאוֹר הַנִּסְתָּר שֶׁאֵינוֹ נִרְאֶה וְאֵינוֹ נוֹדָע מַה שֶּׁשָּׁרָה עַל אוֹתוֹ הָאוֹר הַלָּבָן, וְאָז הָאוֹר שָׁלֵם. וְכָךְ הָאָדָם שֶׁהוּא שָׁלֵם בַּכֹּל, וְאָז נִקְרָא קָדוֹשׁ, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (תהלים טז) לִקְדוֹשִׁים אֲשֶׁר בָּאָרֶץ הֵמָּה וגו’.
Zohar Lech Lacha
Continued from previous DZ
The Nefesh is a lower awakening that clings to the body. Like the light of a candle, the lower light of it, which is black, sticks to the wick and does not separate from it, and does not set itself except in the wick. When the black light clings to the wick, it becomes a throne for the white light above it. The white light corresponds to the light of Ruach.
After both are in place, the black light and the white light on top of it, the white light becomes a throne for a light that is not seen and unknown above the white light and corresponds to the light of Neshama and then becomes a complete light. The candle’s light has three lights, one on top of the other. a) Black light sticks to the wick, the lowest of all. b) The white light above the black light. c) Hidden light above the white light.
A person with these three lights, one above the other, corresponding to Nefesh, Ruach, and Neshama, is called by the name ‘Holy,’’ as we read in Psalm 16:3
“לִקְדוֹשִׁים אֲשֶׁר בָּאָרֶץ הֵמָּה וְאַדִּירֵי כָּל חֶפְצִי בָם.”
“As for the saints (Holy, קְדוֹשִׁים) who are on the earth, “They are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight.”
