The Book Of Zohar, “Ki Tazria“, Item 91: Leprosy means closing, since it closes the upper lights and does not open. And when it closes and does not open, it is called “a plague.” The patriarchs, HGT, are not nourished, for they do not receive light, and all the more so the sons, NHY. It is written, “When the plague of leprosy is in a man,” meaning actually in Adam, in ZA, who is HaVaYaH with Alephs, which is Adam in Gematria. And from here it descends to the lower Adam, who caused it, and blocks his light, and there is affliction for all by that closing of lights.
Everything depends on how much we can raise our yearnings, our requests, and our correct prayers for correction to Zeir Anpin .
By uniting, we ascend to Malchut from which we can begin to raise our request to Zeir Anpin, to the next level, to the upper Partzuf, to an upper system. By connecting to it, we summon the Light that descends upon us.
But the intensity of its descent depends on how we summon it, since we are below in the worlds of BYA (Beria, Yetzira, Assiya) of impurity. Our egos are constantly active, bubbling, and pulling us in different directions, and so it turns out that we can stop our prayer to advance at any moment and fall.
In that case, there are insecure, unclear contacts between Malchut and Zeir Anpin and we are responsible for that. There is a threat of a miscarriage, the fear that the embryo will not develop.
Question: What is the meaning of the ascent of Malchut and further growth to Zeir Anpin?
Answer: The ascent of Malchut is fulfilled by the connection between the friends. If we connect correctly among us, we create the Malchut from which we raise our general collective desire to Zeir Anpin as one whole.
Zeir Anpin is the Creator and the ascent from Malchut to Zeir Anpin is resembling the Creator and adhering to Him when we become one whole in our unity, advancing towards unity with the Creator.
The Creator’s image is called Adam (human being) with regard to the people who gather and create one whole general soul among them.
Question: In other words, first a world is created from the desires and a human being is born in it?
Answer: No. When our desires become one whole, as we are mutually incorporated into one another so that any differences between us disappear, this general desire ascends higher with our request to resemble the Creator in order to become Adam, human beings.
