Tikkun 69 – 40
“וְכָל-הָעָם רֹאִים אֶת-הַקּוֹלֹת וְאֶת-הַלַּפִּידִם, וְאֵת קוֹל הַשֹּׁפָר, וְאֶת-הָהָר, עָשֵׁן; וַיַּרְא הָעָם וַיָּנֻעוּ, וַיַּעַמְדוּ מֵרָחֹק”
“And all the people see the voices, and the lightnings, and the voice of the Shofar, and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled, and stood afar off.”
This verse came immediately when God gave the Ten Commandments to the people.
The voices were lights that represent the seven voices described in Psalms 29. They give the Shechina the tools to connect to the upper levels in order to support the world.
“ וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֲלֵיכֶם, מִתּוֹךְ הָאֵשׁ: קוֹל דְּבָרִים אַתֶּם שֹׁמְעִים, וּתְמוּנָה אֵינְכֶם רֹאִים זוּלָתִי קוֹל”
“And YHVH spoke unto you out of the midst of the fire; ye heard the voice of words, but ye saw no form; only a voice.”
The first part of the verse says “You heard the voice of words” and at the end, it says “you don’t see any form, only voice”. It looks like contradiction but the Zohar explains that the first part relates to the upper three Sefirot that can be heard but not visible in this world of the seven Sefirot. The other part relates to the seven voices that are lights of God that can be revealed in the world of Malchut.
Even if you don’t understand it, please read the following explanation.
The spiritual value is that our soul at the spiritual level, connects to the beginning of all beginnings.
The deeper secret from the upper Zohar section is that when the light from the world of Adam Kadmon (Primordial Man) came out to the world, they went back up in order to create the vessels. The upper three, Keter, Chokmah and Binah went back inside the Ear, Nose and mouth of Adam Kadmon and the other seven stayed outside, ‘visible’. Since Malchut was the last one, she was left without any light. The light that is provided by the Shechina gives it existence
Forgive me for not remembering the exact source but in a commentary to this verse the Zohar or another kabbalist wrote that the people that “stood afar off” are the Erev Rav. Their vessel couldn’t handle the awesome light and they feared death. Nowadays these souls are the ones that stay away from Kabbalah and the Zohar because they can not handle its light.
