Tikkun 33 – 2
There are people with Awe and fear of God because they want support to have good children and grow their material wealth. If they don’t have the fear of losing that, then they have no Awe or fear of God.
The Zohar talks about three levels of Awe and Fear.
The evil one doesn’t recognize the ways of God in good or in bad.
The middle one has awe when he sees good and benefits but not when he experiences some judgment.
The righteous one understands that good and bad are different expressions of the forces of God to bring balance to life. They have awe of God at all times, regardless if the situation seems good or bad for them.
The awe of the righteous connects him to the Shechina. She’s revealed in the central column where there is unification of Chessed, which is Loving kindness and Gevurah, which is judgment. He sees the unification and knows that everything comes from YHVH and the system of good and bad.
“מֵרָחוֹק, יְהוָה נִרְאָה לִי; וְאַהֲבַת עוֹלָם אֲהַבְתִּיךְ, עַל-כֵּן מְשַׁכְתִּיךְ חָסֶד ”
“From afar YHVH appeared to me.’ ‘And, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I’ve drawn Chessed for you. ”
The true Awe brings the love (unification) of YHVH with the vessel (us) and brings Chessed to us.
Only unconditional love can bring balance and draws light of Chassadim. This light can manifest and benefit our tikkun process.
