Hebrew translation:

וְסוֹד הַדָּבָר – קוֹל אוֹמֵר קְרָא, כְּמוֹ קְרָא נָא הֲיֵשׁ עוֹנֶךָ וְאֶל מִי מִקְּדוֹשִׁים תִּפְנֶה, וְהִיא אוֹמֶרֶת מָה אֶקְרָא, כָּל הַבָּשָׂר חָצִיר, הַכֹּל הֵם כִּבְהֵמוֹת שֶׁאוֹכְלוֹת חָצִיר, וְכָל חַסְדּוֹ כְּצִיץ הַשָּׂדֶה, כָּל הַחֶסֶד שֶׁעוֹשִׂים, עוֹשִׂים לְעַצְמָם. וַאֲפִלּוּ כָּל אֵלּוּ שֶׁמִּשְׁתַּדְּלִים בַּתּוֹרָה, כָּל חֶסֶד שֶׁעוֹשִׂים – לְעַצְמָם עוֹשִׂים. בְּאוֹתוֹ זְמַן וַיִּזְכֹּר כִּי בָשָׂר הֵמָּה רוּחַ הוֹלֵךְ וְלֹא יָשׁוּב לְעוֹלָם, וְזוֹהִי רוּחוֹ שֶׁל מָשִׁיחַ, אוֹי לָהֶם מִי שֶׁגּוֹרְמִים שֶׁיֵּלֵךְ לוֹ מִן הָעוֹלָם וְלֹא יָשׁוּב לְעוֹלָם, שֶׁאֵלּוּ הֵם שֶׁעוֹשִׂים אֶת הַתּוֹרָה יַבָּשָׁה, וְלֹא רוֹצִים לְהִשְׁתַּדֵּל בְּחָכְמַת הַקַּבָּלָה, וְגוֹרְמִים שֶׁמִּסְתַּלֵּק מַעְיַן הַחָכְמָה, שֶׁהִיא י’ מִמֶּנָּה, וְנִשְׁאֶרֶת ב’ יְבֵשָׁה, אוֹי לָהֶם שֶׁגּוֹרְמִים עֲנִיּוּת וְחֶרֶב וּבִזָּה וְהֶרֶג וְאַבְדָן בָּעוֹלָם, וְהָרוּחַ הַזּוֹ שֶׁמִּסְתַּלֶּקֶת הִיא רוּחַ הַמָּשִׁיחַ, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנִּתְבָּאֵר, וְהִיא רוּחַ הַקֹּדֶשׁ, וְהִיא רוּחַ חָכְמָה וּבִינָה רוּחַ עֵצָה וּגְבוּרָה, רוּחַ דַּעַת וְיִרְאַת יהו”ה.


Tikkun 30 – 4

Isaiah 40:6
“קוֹל אֹמֵר קְרָא, וְאָמַר מָה אֶקְרָא; כָּל-הַבָּשָׂר חָצִיר, וְכָל-חַסְדּוֹ כְּצִיץ הַשָּׂדֶה ”
“Hark! one says: ‘Proclaim!’ And he said: ‘What shall I proclaim?’ ‘All flesh is grass, and all his goodliness (Chessed) thereof is as the flower bud of the field; ”

The Zohar brings this verse from the prophecy of Isaiah about the time before the revelation of Mashaich. People will not have much faith in God. Some will even try to call the people to come closer to the light, but they will still be full of doubts.

The Zohar also tells us that most people, even those who study Torah on the basic level, act with kindness (Chessed) for personal benefits. When they avoid studying Kabbalah they cause the removal of the letter Yod from the letter Bet of בְּרֵאשִׁית. It is the source of light and the aspect of the dot inside the Bet, as we explained previously.

Studying Torah and expecting personal reward is not the purpose of it or a proper motivation to study. The result is that their Torah becomes empty of light and the spirit of Mashiach is pushed away from the world.

The study of Zohar and Kabbalah on the deepest levels is the only way in our times to connect to the fountain of wisdom (Chokmah) and draw the highest light that can bring Mashaich. Another key to purify the study is to always meditate to reveal the light in the world and not just to gain personal benefits. We should remember the rule of ‘Begin with no end in mind’. (See Daily Zohar #558)

The study of Kabbalah connects the soul to the higher levels of Chokmah, Binah and Da’at and that’s what really draws the light of Mashiach to the world.

Share your Zohar and Kabbalah studies with everyone you can. Not just talking about Kabbalah but with active reading and scanning of the text. Attach non selfish meditations to your study and at the end you will rip the benefits of having Mashiach in everyone’s life including yours.
