Excerpt from 15a: The work of Creation differs. It is not spoken with two then there is no separation. Therefore just with one The Unique One (as a meditation on One)
Two implies a reflection a loop of sorts and an odd number signifies a progression. When there are only two the ideas loop together rapidly deteriorating. When there are one or three the idea may progress. This is why discussing forbidden sexual relations or anything of evil has to be done with two so that the loop is contained and not allowed to grow. Conversely discussing holiness is with the Unique One and its extension three signifying the progression that Creation most naturally takes.
And one does not expound the Divine Chariot merkavah individually, because the Unique One has no partner, which is Metatron; like the divine soul, which has no partner in the body. And why does it the Mishnah say: unless he was wise and discerning from his own knowledge'?
The apperception of the Unique One cannot be explained to another because it is experiential in nature. It exists apart as separate influences on consciousness. This realization comes from being wise and discerning in the discovery of those mysteries that bring this experience of the Unique One.
What you will learn here will be up to you. The text itself is magical. All of the works of the Zoharic period (Zohar, Tikkunei Zohar, Zohar Chadash) have a stylized approach to mysticism.
They are written in an obscure fashion suggesting always that there is something deeper.
The hidden pathways are revealed and provide a lifetime of study.
In my commentaries I show the connections being presented in common terms and using practical examples and analogies. Yes there is a method to my teachings because they mirror one for one the teachings of the Zohar. How could they not?
This book provides years of study material and I can promise that will open so many doors wherever you choose to go. Herein we make the connection. When that happens anything goes. B"H
