Tikkun 26 – 3
Following the discussion about gematria and the different names of God, Rabbi Elazar, asks his father, Rabbi Shimon, on how to understand the verse in Malachi 3:6
“כִּי אֲנִי יְהוָה, לֹא שָׁנִיתִי; וְאַתֶּם בְּנֵי-יַעֲקֹב, לֹא כְלִיתֶם ”
“For I YHVH change not; and you, the sons of Jacob, are not consumed ”
Rabbi Shimon explains that the relationship between the Light and the Shechina never changes. It is only the perception of people whose heart is shut to receive the light. Because of that they experience suffering as it’s said in Leviticus 26:28 “וְיִסַּרְתִּי אֶתְכֶם אַף-אָנִי, שֶׁבַע עַל-חַטֹּאתֵיכֶם. ” “and I also will chastise you seven times for your sins. “.
Deuteronomy 32:20 “וַיֹּאמֶר, אַסְתִּירָה פָנַי מֵהֶם- אֶרְאֶה, מָה אַחֲרִיתָם: כִּי דוֹר תַּהְפֻּכֹת הֵמָּה, בָּנִים לֹא-אֵמֻן בָּם. ”
“And He said: ‘I will hide My face from them, I will see what their end shall be; for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faithfulness ”
“faithfulness” is written in Hebrew אמן. It has the numerical value of 91 that comes from the names of God YHVH and ADNY. It is the aspect of the connection between the upper and lower, the Shechina and the Light.
To see the light we need to do our spiritual work and connect in the level of Malchut with actions to reveal the upper light. When we study the sacred text and make spiritual connections we reveal and see the light in every step of our ways.
When not, our heart is blocked from the light and then we fall into the state of “I will hide My face from them”.
