The Chariot part 1
Chariot in Hebrew is מרכבה
Every transformation of energy between the spiritual levels requires a chariot, רכב ,מרכבה.
This is not like transferring goods by trucks from one location to another because the original energy is never lost. When light pass through a prism you can see different colors but the original light is never lost or change. It is only how we see it.
When the power company deliver electricity to your home or office the essence of the energy is the same but it revealed differently based on the device that connect to it. Interesting is that the elements of an electrical circuit are called in Hebrew “רכיבים” “Carriers or Vehicles”, which is based on the same root and meaning of chariot.
When the Zohar says that Abraham is the chariot for the energy level of Chessed of the right column it means that Abraham by his action channel the light in a form of sharing and kindness that is called Chessed. So is with the other levels, Isaac is the chariot for the level of Gevurah of the left column, Jacob for the level of Tiferet, central column and so with the other sefirot, Moses for Netzach, Aharon for Hod, Joseph for Yessod and King David for Malchut.
