The Aramaic Zohar above, translated into Hebrew below

פָּתַח רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן וְאָמַר: אֲנִי לְדוֹדִי וְדוֹדִי לִי הָרוֹעֶה בַּשּׁוֹשַׁנִּים. מַה זֶּה שׁוֹשַׁנִּים? אֶלָּא הַשּׁוֹשַׁנָּה הָעֶלְיוֹנָה, הַשְּׁכִינָה הָעֶלְיוֹנָה, וְהִיא קְרִיאַת שְׁמַע שֶׁל שַׁחֲרִית, וְשׁוֹשַׁנָּה הַשְּׁנִיָּה שֶׁל קְרִיאַת שְׁמַע שֶׁל עַרְבִית, הַשְּׁכִינָה הַתַּחְתּוֹנָה, זוֹ לְיָמִין וְזוֹ לִשְׂמֹאל, הָרוֹעֶה בַּשּׁוֹשַׁנִּים זֶה הָעַמּוּד הָאֶמְצָעִי, וְהַשּׁוֹשַׁנָּה הָעֶלְיוֹנָה שֶׁל קְרִיאַת שְׁמַע שֶׁל שַׁחֲרִית, שֶׁהוּא בֹקֶר, הַיָּמִין שֶׁל אַבְרָהָם, יֵשׁ לָהּ חֲמִשָּׁה עָלִים, וְהֵם שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יהו”ה אֱלֹהֵינ”וּ יהו”ה, וּשְׁלֹשָׁה עָשָׂר עָלִים מִבִּפְנִים אֶחָ”ד, שִׁשָּׁה אֲדֻמִּים וְשִׁשָּׁה לְבָנִים, וְהַשּׁוֹשַׁנָּה שֶׁנִּכְלֶלֶת בָּהֶם הֲרֵי שְׁלֹשׁ עֶשְׂרֵה בְּחֶשְׁבּוֹן אֶחָ”ד, וְכֵן שׁוֹשַׁנָּה בָּהּ עֶשְׂרִים וַחֲמִשָּׁה גַּרְעִינִים בַּתַּפּוּחַ שֶׁלָּהּ, כְּחֶשְׁבּוֹן עֶשְׂרִים וְחָמֵשׁ אוֹתִיּוֹת הַיִּחוּד, וְכֵן בַּשּׁוֹשַׁנָּה הַשְּׁנִיָּה עֶשְׂרִים וַחֲמִשָּׁה גַּרְעִינִים, וְכֻלָּם עוֹלִים לַחֲמִשִּׁים, שׁוֹשַׁנָּה בֵּין הַחוֹחִים זֶה בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא, וְזֶה (בְּרֵאשִׁית ב’ שׁוֹשַׁנָּה י’).

Tikkun 25 – 10

Song of Songs 6:3
“אֲנִי לְדוֹדִי וְדוֹדִי לִי, הָרֹעֶה בַּשּׁוֹשַׁנִּים”
“I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine, the shepherd among the lilies.”
Because Rabbi Shimon is on a higher level he could create a spiritual opening by discussing certain spiritual subjects. He found the appearance of the Eagle and the two lilies (from previous Daily Zohar) as an opportunity to create this opening and record it in the Zohar for us to connect.

The first lily is the aspect of the Shema Yisrael prayer of the Morning and the second is for the Shema prayer of the night. One for the right column and one for the left. The shepherd is the reference to Moses and Jacob is as the central column.

The morning is Chessed and the right of Abraham. The lily has five leaves, which is the aspect of the first five words of the Shema “שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יהו”ה אֱלֹהֵינ”וּ יהו”ה” and 13 inner leaves that is for the word אֶחָ”ד, with numerical value of 13. Six of red color, six of white color and the lily itself as one, makes 13. There are 25 seeds inside the lily as the total number of letters of the first six words of the Shema. The two lilies together make a count of 50 to connect the upper and lower.

With this Zohar section we have the opportunity to connect to the experience that rabbi Shimon had at the same moment it happened. On the spiritual level we come to be one with the spiritual revelation and share the same light.
