וְאָדָם מִצַּד שֶׁל אוֹת הַבְּרִית י’ נוֹלַד מָהוּל, זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב וַתֵּרֶא אוֹתוֹ כִּי טוֹב הוּא, אִמְרוּ צַדִּיק כִּי טוֹב, שֶׁשָּׁם אֵין קְלִפָּה שֶׁל עָרְלָה כְּלָל, וְזֶה שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר אָדָם הָרִאשׁוֹן מוֹשֵׁךְ בְּעָרְלָתוֹ הָיָה, זֶה אָדָם שֶׁל עֲשִׂיָּה, וּמַה הוּא? זוֹ הַקְּלִפָּה שֶׁהִתְלַבְּשָׁה בּוֹ (בָּהּ) לִשְׁלֹט עַל הַכֹּל, זֶה שֶׁכָּתוּב וּמַלְכוּתוֹ בַּכֹּל מָשָׁלָה, וּמִשּׁוּם זֶה נֶאֱמַר בָּהּ נַעֲשֶׂה אָדָם בְּצַלְמֵנוּ כִּדְמוּתֵנוּ, לְהִתְלַבֵּשׁ בְּכָל הַדְּיוֹקְנָאוֹת וְהַקְּלִפּוֹת.וְעוֹד נֶאֱמַר בַּשְּׁכִינָה הַתַּחְתּוֹנָה נַעֲשֶׂה אָדָם בְּצַלְמֵנוּ כִּדְמוּתֵנוּ, שֶׁתִּהְיֶה כְלוּלָה מִכָּל הַסְּפִירוֹת, שֶׁכָּל עֶשֶׂר הַסְּפִירוֹת כָּל אַחַת נָתְנָה בּוֹ חֶלְקָהּ, וּמַה חֶלְקָהּ? אֶלָּא כָל סְפִירָה נָתְנָה בּוֹ עִשּׂוּר שֶׁלָּהּ, שֶׁכָּל סְפִירָה עוֹלָה לַעֲשָׂרָה, וְנָתְנוּ לוֹ כָּל אַחַת וְאַחַת הָעִשּׂוּר שֶׁלָּהּ, נִשְׁאֲרוּ הֵן תֵּשַׁע תֵּשַׁע, וְכָל אַחַת וְאַחַת הִשְׁתַּלֵּם בָּהּ לַעֲשָׂרָה, וּמִשּׁוּם כָּךְ מְעַשְּׂרִים אֶחָד מֵעֲשָׂרָה, וּמִשּׁוּם שֶׁהִיא כְלוּלָה מִכֻּלָּם, נֶאֱמַר בָּהּ אַהֲבַת כְּלוּלוֹתָיִךְ, כְּלוּלָה מִן הַכֹּל, וְאַחַר שֶׁנִּכְלְלָה מִן הָעֶלְיוֹנִים נֶאֱמַר בָּהּ וּרְדוּ בִדְגַת הַיָּם וּבְעוֹף הַשָּׁמַיִם וּבַבְּהֵמָה וּבְכָל הָאָרֶץ, נִכְלְלָה בַתַּחְתּוֹנִים, וַאֲפִלּוּ בְּכָל הַקְּלִפּוֹת שֶׁל הַצַּד הָאַחֵר הִתְלַבְּשָׁה, לְקַיֵּם בָּהּ וּמַלְכוּתוֹ בַּכֹּל מָשָׁלָה, וּבְכָל מַה שֶּׁהִתְלַבְּשָׁה נִכְלְלָה (נִקְרְאָה) בִשְׁמוֹ, הֲרֵי כָּאן אָדָם שֶׁל עֲשִׂיָּה וִיצִירָה.
Tikkun 69 – 117
Adam of the world of Atzilut was born circumcised and Adam of the world of Asiah (Action) had foreskin because of the sin. The Zohar revealed to us that the purpose of it was to let Adam connect to the negative side and have ability to control it.
This is another aspect of “our own image and after our likeness” (Genesis 1:26). ‘Our own image’ is the higher spiritual aspect and ‘our likeness’ is the aspect of the lower level of Malchut. The Klipot have power in Malchut and Adam needed to have a connection to the physical world in order to fight and break the Klipot.
Each one of the Ten Sefirot gave a tenth (Ma’aser) to create Adam so he would be able to have connection and control over everything.
“וּמַלְכוּתוֹ, בַּכֹּל מָשָׁלָה.” “and His kingdom (Malchut) ruleth over all. ”
The purpose of Creation was to allow us to have ability to rule all levels. Adam sinned so we can have a Klipa to fight and control, otherwise we won’t have a ‘Kingdom’ that is Malchut.
Adam was created to be a king over Malchut and as his children we are princes and princesses. We should remember that and take back control of our kingdom from the Klipah. Draw your swords and fight.
Now before you go to your local metal smith and order a fine sword, know that the only sword we need is our tongue. It has the right shape and can control life and death.
Proverbs 18:21 “מָוֶת וְחַיִּים, בְּיַד-לָשׁוֹן” “Death and life are in the power of the tongue”.
Death is the aspect of Tree of Knowledge and Life is the aspect of the Tree of Life. When we use our tongue with negativity we increase the level and power of Klipot in the world. When we use it for positivity we keep the balance and when we use it to connect to the Tree of Life using the sacred text of Torah and Zohar we actually draw a spiritual sword that kills and removes Klipot from the world.
The Daily Zohar gives you the tools to use your sword to fight and remove the negativity from the world. The Unity Zohar project already has transliteration of the entire Zohar. Now everyone is able to read the powerful text and make his tongue a spiritual sword in the fight to remove negativity from our local and global environment.
In the song on Rabbi Shimon that we sing every Friday night we read “וחרב הוצאת מתערה שלפת נגד צוררך” “and a sword you drew from its scabbard against your enemies” . We know that Rabbi Shimon never fought physically but his words could control everything in the world of Malchut and above. With his tongue he bonded angels to do his wills and even the angel of death could not come even closer to him. The Zohar tells us many stories that testify to Rabbi Shimon complete connection to the Tree of Life.
He left the world on his terms to let us complete the Tikun, leaving behind the wonderful tool of the Zohar that many people around the world experience its power.
King David knew that his life should be ended when he reaches the age of 70. He was busy the entire day reciting sacred text to keep away the angel of death. Only after many efforts death manages to create a distraction that caused King David to stop his prayers and his soul was taken.
I recommend that each one of you to make a little effort and read aloud text from the Unity Zohar. One minute or more everyday can make a big difference.
