Tikkun 21 – 190
The word ‘shaking’ מזעזע is from the root of זע, which means movement and vibration. Its numerical value is 77. When we exchange the letter positions we get עֹז, which means power and force.
The power of God, which is infinite, is revealed in this world in a limited form when the light creates vibrations (the word of God) to form patterns of energy and matter, which are the same (E=MC2)
“יְהוָה–עֹז, לְעַמּוֹ יִתֵּן; יְהוָה, יְבָרֵךְ אֶת-עַמּוֹ בַשָּׁלוֹם”
“YHVH will give strength unto His people; YHVH will bless his people with peace”
The Torah is considered עֹז and was given to us as a force to support our souls and lives.
Like עֹז, the word for ‘Luck’, מזל is also numerically 77. Kabbalah explains that luck comes from the higher level of Keter.
“מַה-שֶּׁהָיָה, הוּא שֶׁיִּהְיֶה, וּמַה-שֶּׁנַּעֲשָׂה, הוּא שֶׁיֵּעָשֶׂה; וְאֵין כָּל-חָדָשׁ, תַּחַת הַשָּׁמֶשׁ”
“That which has been is that which shall be, and that which has been done is that which shall be done; and there is nothing new under the sun.”
For some this is a true and depressing fact of life. People have the illusion of control over their lives while the only control they have is over their perception and relation to the world around them.
Their life is already planned for them and that is what the above verse means.
To be able to make changes in this world we have to think about others. In order to do so we need to make a connection to the Endless. This is where everything exists in pure potential and can be transformed into actions below. The Endless is pure and a simple light in a resting state. There is no limitation, separation or differences in the Endless.
The 10 Sefirot and the Tree of Life is the process that restricts the Endless light into a physical form. This process creates different vibrations that evolve from a creative thought at Keter all the way down to Malchut.
For us, as the physical residents of this world and as created beings, we are very limited in our ability to make changes because we are already part of the program.
The Zohar teaches us that if we go from “Under the Sun” to “Above the sun” we can connect to the source of all and be able to make “new”. The sun is the aspect of Zeir Anpin and the system of this world. Above Zeir Anpin is the upper three Sefirot of Keter, Chokmah and Binah.
