Song of Songs 3:5
“הִשְׁבַּעְתִּי אֶתְכֶם בְּנוֹת יְרוּשָׁלִַם, בִּצְבָאוֹת, אוֹ, בְּאַיְלוֹת הַשָּׂדֶה: אִם-תָּעִירוּ וְאִם-תְּעוֹרְרוּ אֶת-הָאַהֲבָה, עַד שֶׁתֶּחְפָּץ ”
“I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles, and by the hinds of the field, that you awaken not, nor stir up love, until it please”
The Zohar asks, “With what would they awaken the love?” and answers, “with the right (Right column, Chessed)” but she wouldn’t be pleased until the ‘faithful Shepherd’, which is the aspect of the central column, comes for her. It’s said about him in Genesis 1:2 “וְרוּחַ אֱלֹהִים, מְרַחֶפֶת עַל-פְּנֵי הַמָּיִם ”
“and the spirit of God hovers over the water.”
The Zohar explains that the spirit of God is the spirit of Mashiach. It was there before the creation of the seven days and the world of Action (עשיה).
In Isaiah’s prophecy we read the description of the Mashaich. 11:3 “וְנָחָה עָלָיו, רוּחַ יְהוָה–רוּחַ חָכְמָה וּבִינָה, רוּחַ עֵצָה וּגְבוּרָה, רוּחַ דַּעַת, וְיִרְאַת יְהוָה. ”
“And the spirit of YHVH shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom (Chokmah) and understanding (Binah), the spirit of counsel (right) and might (left), the spirit of knowledge (Da’at) and of the fear (‘Awe’ central) of YHVH ”
Mashiach will unite right and left, upper and lower because he will come down from Da’at, which is the gate that Moses established when he brought the Torah to the world.
The Torah is the ‘pipe’ that connects upper three Sefirot with the lower seven. The Zohar is the ultimate tool to bring the light of the Torah from Binah to Malchut.
