The Aramaic Zohar above translated into Hebrew below
Tikkun 25 – 3
The Torah is like a heart, לב, in the body. It is stored in the ark and the Zohar explains that the heart in the body is placed between the ‘wings’ of the lungs to bring air that blows through the lungs to the veins and to the heart.
Without the lungs, the heart would burn the whole body. Placing the Torah in the Ark serves the same purpose. It keeps the energy of the Torah in balance.
The Zohar describes that when the soul leaves the body, a fire burns on the blood and the soul goes into a sleep state.
Song of Songs 5:2
“אֲנִי יְשֵׁנָה, וְלִבִּי עֵר; קוֹל דּוֹדִי דוֹפֵק, פִּתְחִי-לִי אֲחֹתִי רַעְיָתִי יוֹנָתִי תַמָּתִי–שֶׁרֹּאשִׁי נִמְלָא-טָל, קְוֻצּוֹתַי רְסִיסֵי לָיְלָה. ”
“I sleep, but my heart is awake; Hark! my beloved is knocking: ‘Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled; for my head is filled with dew, my locks with the drops of the night ”
When the soul returns it ‘knocks’ on the gate of the heart six times for the six Sefirot of Zeir Anpin and awakens it. This is the aspect of the letter Vav of the YHVH name. It bridges the upper YH with the H of Malchut and brings life to it.
The ‘dew’ in the verse is a code for the letters YHV in their spelled form. יוד-הא-ואו. They have the numerical value of 39, which is the same as טל, ‘dew’. The ‘dew’ יוד-הא-ואו YHV, comes from above in the morning with the energy of Chassadim to Malchut, H, הא.
