Tikkun 30 – 7
“וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים, יְהִי אוֹר; וַיְהִי-אוֹר”
“And God said: ‘Let there be light.’ And there was light. ”
“יְהִי אוֹר”, “let there be light” appears twice in this verse with the letter Vav between them. The Zohar says that the first one is for the right column and the second is for the left column.
“וַיַּרְא אֱלֹהִים אֶת-הָאוֹר, כִּי-טוֹב; ”, “And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness ”
The third time the word אוֹר , light, appeared in Genesis, it was to channel the central column that brought balance. That is why it said, “God saw the light that it was good.” immediately after it.
The verse continues
“וַיַּבְדֵּל אֱלֹהִים, בֵּין הָאוֹר וּבֵין הַחֹשֶׁךְ”,
“and God separated the light from the darkness”
The Zohar says that light is the channel of the right column and the aspect of Aaron the high priest. Darkness is the left column and the aspect of Korach. The Torah tells us that God separated between right and left, light and darkness.
Numbers 16:21 “הִבָּדְלוּ, מִתּוֹךְ הָעֵדָה הַזֹּאת; וַאֲכַלֶּה אֹתָם, כְּרָגַע ”
“’Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment.’ ”
God warned Moses, Aaron and the rest of the people to separate themselves from the darkness that Korach brought when they were coming to Moses demanding to have priesthood. As we explained in Daily Zohar #563, the left can not control the right because it brings death. It is only when the right is connected to the left, balance can be created.
The duty of the priest is to bring the light, which is life, in order to remove darkness from the world. Darkness can not try taking over the right without bringing death and destruction.
Left and darkness are the desire for the self in all of their aspects. The world is shaking now on all levels to ‘separate’ light from darkness. Dictators are falling down everywhere. The effect is visible where there is physical vulnerability like the ‘ring of fire’.
We begin to see how everything affects everything else and everyone. This process of separation will grow and become more painful. It will continue until we really understand that there is a system of life and the control begins at the spiritual level. Life is not about how much we can take from the other person but how much we can give and share.
Our life and events that will follow in the near future will teach us more about the importance of thinking in UNITY.
I am not a future teller, I just learned the system of cause and effect from the Zohar. The only protection, as the Zohar tells us, is to keep studying the Zohar because it is Noah’s Ark of our generation.
