Torah, Numbers 12:15 – 12:16: So Miriam was confined outside the camp for seven days, and the people did not travel until Miriam had entered. Then the people departed from Hazeroth, and they camped in the desert of Paran.
Question: Miriam is a very strong female image in the Torah. What is Miriam in a person?
Answer: Moses and Aaron are the two sides of the movement toward the Creator. Miriam is the lowest part, Malchut, that connects Moses and Aaron.
She continues the chain of prophetesses who came from Babylon (Sarah, Rebecca, Leah, and Rachel) and is their collective image. Now she accompanies the entire camp of the people of Israel, that is, the entire movement of a person to the Creator. When this quality is no longer required, she dies.
If it is written in the Torah that a person in the camp is sick, it means that he undergoes a spiritual correction and it is necessary to wait until it is over. It is impossible to advance without this. You cannot move forward because you have sick qualities. Miriam represents their common quality, common desire. Naturally since she fell ill with leprosy, she must be corrected. Only after this it is possible to move on.
It has never happened that the people would leave the sick in the desert. The movement forward is based on the fact that you constantly reveal egoistic qualities, correct them, and move on.
Question: Why does Moses pray for the people, for Miriam, all the time?
Answer: He always does what the Creator desires.
The fact is that Moses is the highest point in the soul that pulls a person to complete correction, to adhesion with the Creator. Moses, in this quality, is constantly fulfilling the inner desires of the Creator.
Look how they play! The Creator is constantly threatening the people and Moses protects them because Moses and the Creator are as if one whole, and all the rest are those qualities that must be corrected.
