The Aramaic Zohar above translated into Hebrew below
Tikkun 24 – 6
“זִבְחֵי אֱלֹהִים, רוּחַ נִשְׁבָּרָה:
לֵב-נִשְׁבָּר וְנִדְכֶּה– אֱלֹהִים, לֹא תִבְזֶה. ”
“The sacrifices for God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, God will not despise ”
The heart is like a nut, has a Klipah of the ego on it. The light can not come in it, unless the ego is broken like a nut shell. It should be hit hard to allow connection to the light.
“תּוֹעֲבַת יְהוָה, כָּל-גְּבַהּ-לֵב; יָד לְיָד, לֹא יִנָּקֶה. ”
“Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to YHVH; hand for hand ! he shall not be unpunished ”
This verse tells us that even good actions without a pure heart, can not be connections to the light.
A heart with ego is considered as a foreskin. Like in circumcision, as we explained previously, it needs to be cut out in order to let the light in.
