Daily Zohar # 4477 – Mishpatim – He did not know it would cost his life
Daily Zohar 4477
157. אַלְמָנָה שֶׁלֹּא נִשֵּׂאת, אַף עַל גַּב שֶׁבָּא בֶּן זוּגָהּ וְהִיא לֹא רוֹצָה לְהִנָּשֵׂא – הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא לֹא כוֹפֶה אוֹתָהּ מִן הַדִּין, וְהַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא מַזְמִין לְאוֹתוֹ הָאִישׁ אִשָּׁה אַחֶרֶת, וְלֹא נִכְנֶסֶת בְּדִין כָּזֶה (וְאֵין עָלֶיהָ בֵּית דִּין בְּזֶה) בְּאוֹתוֹ הָעוֹלָם, וְאַף עַל גַּב שֶׁאֵין לָהּ בֵּן, שֶׁהֲרֵי אִשָּׁה לֹא מְצֻוָּה עַל פְּרִיָּה וּרְבִיָּה, כְּמוֹ שֶׁבֵּאֲרוּהָ.

If the first husband repels the second husband, then it means that the first ones were their soulmates and not the second, and for this reason, they have no enduring relationship with them, and the soul of the first repels the soul of the second. For this reason, one who takes a widow, they call upon him;
“עַד יְפַלַּח חֵץ כְּבֵדוֹ כְּמַהֵר צִפּוֹר אֶל פָּח וְלֹא יָדַע כִּי בְנַפְשׁוֹ הוּא.”
“Till an arrow struck his liver. As a bird hastens to the snare, He did not know it would cost his life.”
“כִּי חִנָּם מְזֹרָה הָרָשֶׁת בְּעֵינֵי כָל בַּעַל כָּנָף.”
“Surely, in vain, the net is spread In the sight of any bird;”
It is not known whether she is genuinely his soulmate or not.
This Zohar discusses the complexity of the union between two souls. It is all planned from above, according to the correction paths of the soul. The references to being called upon and the analogy of spreading a net in the sight of a bird highlight the risks and uncertainties involved in forming new relationships without knowing the future and spiritual implications of the relationship.
A widow who has not remarried, even though her destined spouse comes, and she does not wish to marry, the Holy One, blessed be He, does not force her according to the law, and the Holy One, blessed be He, arranges another woman for that man, and the widow is not judged for this in this world. And even though she has no son, a woman is not commanded to procreate as explained.

** 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.
