Tikkun 69 – 22
The Zohar asks “Why Cain was given the power to kill Abel?
“יֶשׁ-הֶבֶל, אֲשֶׁר נַעֲשָׂה עַל-הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר יֵשׁ צַדִּיקִים אֲשֶׁר מַגִּיעַ אֲלֵהֶם כְּמַעֲשֵׂה הָרְשָׁעִים, וְיֵשׁ רְשָׁעִים שֶׁמַּגִּיעַ אֲלֵהֶם כְּמַעֲשֵׂה הַצַּדִּיקִים: אָמַרְתִּי, שֶׁגַּם-זֶה הָבֶל”
“There is a vanity (Abel, הָבֶל) which is done upon the earth: that there are righteous men, unto whom it happened according to the work of the wicked; again, there are wicked men, to whom it happened according to the work of the righteous–I said that this also is vanity (Abel, הָבֶל) ”
Because our souls are part of the soul of Adam, we carry the tikkun of the first sin and the negative side can affect everyone.
“וְהָאֱלֹהִים, יְבַקֵּשׁ אֶת-נִרְדָּף”
“and God seek that which is pursued”
This verse explains the way God takes care of the souls. Even after their life ends on earth they can come back with the inherited state of the soul from previous lives.
“וַיֵּדַע אָדָם עוֹד, אֶת-אִשְׁתּוֹ, וַתֵּלֶד בֵּן, וַתִּקְרָא אֶת-שְׁמוֹ שֵׁת: כִּי שָׁת-לִי אֱלֹהִים, זֶרַע אַחֵר–תַּחַת הֶבֶל, כִּי הֲרָגוֹ קָיִן”
“And Adam knew his wife again; and she bore a son, and called his name Seth: ‘for God hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel; for Cain slew him.”
Abel incarnated in Seth and later in Moses to fulfill his mission as the first soul from the root of the Good side of the Tree of Knowledge Good and Bad.
Adam and Eve’s sin affected Cain and his challenge in life. He was supposed to stop the consciousness he carried from the Snake and stop death, instead of using it for his agenda.
From this we learn a great lesson on the responsibility we have toward our children. They carry our tikkun up to the fourth generation down the line.
God is keeping excellent accounting and this secret is in the 10 commandments.
“כִּי אָנֹכִי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ, אֵל קַנָּא–פֹּקֵד עֲוֹן אָבֹת עַל-בָּנִים עַל-שִׁלֵּשִׁים וְעַל-רִבֵּעִים, לְשֹׂנְאָי”
“for I YHVH thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me;’
Before you act, think twice, once for the effect that will be on you and once for the effect of your actions on your children.
