If you signed up for the Daily Zohar and I highly recommend that you do, then you would have received the translation below with its Aramaic counterpart in your in box this morning. I just want to point out a couple things concerning the sign of the covenant mentioned below that relate to our generation.
The sign, אות has a gematria value of 407, just like the 6th word in the Torah ואת, and the square root of 407 is 20.17424 or graphically the year 2017 coupled with 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David. And if that is not enough of a sign, the full gematria value (standard, ordinal, and kolel for the 7 letters) of Sign of the Covenant, אות ברית, is 1109, whose square root is 33.30, as in the 3330 years (66.6 jubilee years) from 2448 to 5778, which begins in 2017, and ends in 2018, the same year in the Hebrew Calendar that G-d established his Covenant with Abraham.
There is so much light in every word of Rabbi Shimon, who dictated these portions, (the Tikunei Zohar), that we’re translating and publishing for the first time ever, and while they all connect to the beginning, Bereshit, he said that they were for our generation, the one at the end of days. From the simple light shining forth from only two words that we elaborated on, you can see why and see the importance of connecting to it on a daily basis.
Blessings to all,
From the Daily Zohar #8:
Those that keep the sign, אות (means also letter), of the covenant, ברית (word= מילה ) , (also means circumcision), on the eighth day and also keep the Shabbat in its time, which is two thousands Ama (Ama is a measuring unit) in each direction and to four sides equal to eight thousands. The sign of the covenant and the sign of Shabbat are the two Yods form the unification name of upper and lower Y-A-H-D-V-N-H-Y, יא-הד-ונ-הי.
This was explained before that every person found within the two signs and on them it was said, “You shall not take the Mother form the sons..”
If you ask why a person need both signs, and the answer is because the Shechina that is the Yod from אדני ADNY can not be here without the Holy One, Bless be He, that is the Yod of YHVH. A man should be careful every day to keep this unification. Weekday with the Tefillin and Shabbat.
Shabbat is the female and the sign of the covenant, which is the male of Zeir Anpin, letter Vav of the name.
The explanation is that before creation, the Endless Light filled up all existence and there was no place to create new. There was no beginning or end. When the creator desired to emanate new emanations and create the worlds, he restricted his light from a middle point, which is Malchut and the energy of judgment revealed itself as a result of this restriction. The light distant itself from this point and a void was made. Inside this void all the worlds were created.
A line from the Endless came down into the void, the vessel, to sustain it. The light in the judgement level is אדני and supernal light is יֿ+ה+ו+ה , The two letter י represent the two aspects of Light that we need to keep connecting with actions that continues the Light. Maintain the connection using spiritual tools and act of sharing, giving in all of their aspects.
On those that don’t keep the connection it said “You shall send away the mother”. They lose the connection to the upper levels and can’t be called sons.
