Ways—Paths—Pleasantness—and Peace

(înapoi la pagina ZOHAR CUPRINS / VAERA – click)

183) “Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.” “Her ways are ways of pleasantness” are the ways of the Torah. Anyone who walks in the ways of Torah, the Creator brings upon him the pleasantness of Divinity, never to part with him. “And all her paths are peace” are the paths of the Torah, since all the paths of the Torah are peace—peace for him above, peace for him below, peace for him in this world, and peace for him in the next world.

184) That Jew said, “There is an inner secret in this verse. I heard from my father and learned a good thing here in this verse.”

185) This verse is in two manners and in two discernments, since you read ways and you read paths in it. Also, you read pleasantness and you read peace in it.

186) “Her ways are ways of pleasantness,” as it is written, “Who makes a way in the sea,” for wherever the Torah writes, “way,” it is a road open for all. So are her ways. They are ways that are opened by the patriarchs, HGT, who dug in the great sea, Malchut, and entered it. And they are the paths that develop to each side and to all the directions in the world.

187) Pleasantness is pleasure that emerges from the next world, Bina, and shines to all the lights, ZON. They spread in all directions, to the right and to the left, and that good, the light of the next world that the patriarchs—HGT de ZA—nurse, is called “pleasantness.”

The thing after the next world is called “pleasantness,” since when the next world awakens to impart abundance, joy, lights, the freedom of the world awakens. This is why the next world, Bina, is called “pleasantness.”

There are two points in Malchut, one that is mitigated in Bina and is called Miftacha [key], and two that is unmitigated and is called Man’ula [lock]. Hence, there are two names to Yesod de Malchut: 1) When she is established from a Miftacha she is called “way” or “road,” and 2) when she is established from a Man’ula she is called “path” or “route.”

In all the places that are called “ways” in the Torah, it is a road that is open for all, since it is established from a Miftacha, which receives all the Mochin de Bina, called “pleasantness,” and is open to impart them to all the lower ones. This correction, to be fit for reception of the Mochin de Bina, was made out of her ascent to HGT de ZA, called patriarchs. And she is established there, the fourth of the patriarchs. This is why it is considered that the patriarchs established this Yesod in Malchut, called Miftacha.

Ways are open by the patriarchs, since HGT de ZA correct her into being their Malchut, the fourth of the patriarchs. This correction is called mining and digging because by that they make her a receptacle for the Mochin de Bina, which are called “pleasantness,” as it is written, “The well, which the princes dug,” which are AVI, “Which the nobles of the people delved,” meaning HGT de ZA.

188) When the Sabbath begins, all the wicked in hell rest and they have joy and rest on the Sabbath. When the Sabbath ends, we should evoke the upper joy to be saved from the punishment of hell, since from that time onwards they are sentenced. We should evoke and say, “And let the graciousness of the Lord our God be upon us,” which is to return and to extend the upper pleasantness, which is the Mochin de Bina, meaning the joy of everyone. This is why “Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.”

189) Her paths are the paths and routes that emerge from above, from AVI, which are the Man’ula. And they all receive a single covenant, called “peace,” Yesod de ZA, peace at home. It brings them to the great sea, Malchut, when it is in force, meaning when the great sea is only as left and in Dinim, as a frozen sea. Then, by the force of the Masach de Hirik in the middle line, it enhances the right over the left and they are mingled in one another, and then the waters open. This is considered that it makes peace, and then it gives him peace. This is the meaning of the words, “And all her paths are peace.”
