Tikkun 50 -3
Our proper spiritual connections open channels that make it possible for the Shechina to draw the light to this world for us. There are different ways and levels of channels that can be opened but until we establish such a channel, the light can not flow down and the Shechina remains in a state of ‘exile’, which is a disconnection from the light.
Without the work of the Israelites there is no sustenance for the Shechina and the whole world share the state of Exile. The other nations get some light from a spiritual source called luck, מזל, but for the Israelites there is no ‘luck’. They must earn the Light and raise the Shechina to connect with the Light.
When a channel opens, the Holy One uses the archangel Metatron as a vehicle and bridge to come down and bring sustenance to the Shechina. The level of this connection is based on the work of the Israelites.
The word for sustenance is commonly used for having money and food on the table with comfortable material life. The Zohar uses this term here only in relation to spiritual sustenance. In Tikunei Zohar #6, when Rabbi Shimon was studying with Elijah the Prophet a prophecy from heaven was revealed
‘וכמה בני נשא לתתא יתפרנסון מהאי חיבורא דילך כד יתגלו לתתא בדרא בתראה בסוף יומיא, ובגינה, ”וקראתם דרור בארץ”
“And some people in the world below will have sustenance from your writing (the Zohar) in the last generation and because of it they will experience the freedom”
Sustenance is the light that manifests in our life. As Israelites with the consciousness and tools that give us access to the light comes the responsibility to open channels of light for the whole world. This is why Israelites had to go to exile after the destruction of the Holy Temples. We have to open channels of light for the whole world. This is our work and we must do it.
No matter where you are in the world. Open your channel because it affects the world around you beyond your grasp. Places without Israelites are full of negativity and controlled by ‘Lucky’ individuals. Imagine the light as a blessed rain and the earth as the Shechina. If we don’t bring the rain, the earth dries out and nothing flourishes.
