The Book of Zohar, Chapter “VaYakhel [And Moses Assembled]” Item 132: “To the south, Hesed, there is an appointee, Psagniah, who governs the Avir on that side, and several other appointees and ministers are there with him. The keys of the Avir on that side were given to him, and all who are in trouble pray a prayer to their master out of their plight, out of the shattering of the heart. If the utterance is as it should be, it rises to the Avir on that side and that appointee accepts it and kisses it. When he kisses it, he starts and says, ‘The Creator will have mercy on you and will be filled with mercy for you.'”
Of course, we do not understand what is written here. We do not even need to delve into these mysterious images. We only need to know one thing, what is being talked about here are the states, which a person goes through while raising his prayer
. This is how he feels when it ascends onto higher and higher levels, pushing through the skies.
“Pushing through the skies” means that with the help from the above, when the Light
exerts influence on him, the person sees how his intention is being perfected more and more. And so it continues until his prayer ascends to the levels of the great mercy and the person receives the answer to his plea. That is why we have to try to simply flow along with the text, desiring for this to happen to us.
