Tikkun 21 – 181
“וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלַי יְהוָה, הַשַּׁעַר הַזֶּה סָגוּר יִהְיֶה לֹא יִפָּתֵחַ וְאִישׁ לֹא-יָבֹא בוֹ–כִּי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, בָּא בוֹ; וְהָיָה, סָגוּר”
“And YHVH said to me: ‘This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, neither shall any man enter in by it, for YHVH, the God of Israel, has entered in by it; therefore it shall be shut.”
“כֹּה-אָמַר, אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה, שַׁעַר הֶחָצֵר הַפְּנִימִית הַפֹּנֶה קָדִים, יִהְיֶה סָגוּר שֵׁשֶׁת יְמֵי הַמַּעֲשֶׂה; וּבְיוֹם הַשַּׁבָּת יִפָּתֵחַ, וּבְיוֹם הַחֹדֶשׁ יִפָּתֵחַ.”
“Thus said YHVH: The gate of the inner court that is looked toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the sabbath day it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened.”
The structure of the Holy Tabernacle and the Holy Temple in later time was built to represent the whole spiritual system. Everything had a perfect reason to be there and to reveal the light in the world.
YHVH explicitly said to Ezekiel that the east gate is dedicated to the his connection “בָּא בוֹ”
The Archangel Metatron מטטרון (314 = 3.14) is the one that is at the gate between the upper Three Sefirot and the Lower seven. He helps us draw the circular light from above to the darkness of the middle point, Malchut, during the six days.
On Shabbat, which is the seventh day, the upper gate is opened and the Light of Binah shines through to connect the Shechina with Zeir Anpin.
The highest connection to Binah is on Yom Kippur, which is on the 10th day of the seventh month.
During the six days, negativity can get attached to our spiritual connection but not on Shabbat. The light of Binah ‘burns’ the negativity and it is the best day that a couple can choose for unification and drawing blessings.
“כּוֹס-יְשׁוּעוֹת אֶשָּׂא וּבְשֵׁם יְהוָה אֶקְרָא.”
“I will lift up the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of YHVH.”
The ‘cup’, represents the vessel that is filled with blessings on the seventh day where the connection to YHVH is on the level of Binah.
