Most of the posts here I wrote , this is from a friend, It has some great stuff

In last weeks parsha in the Zohar, Ki Tetze, there is recorded the
words of those who came to teach R. Shimon bar Yochai, including the
souls of Moshe Rabenu, Eliyahu ha-navee, the heads of yeshivas
“upstairs”, and Hashem himself was present! and concurred! :

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

3. Yet sages, WOE to those who eat the chaff and ears of corn of the
Torah, THAT IS, WHOSE TORAH IS MIXED OF GOOD AND EVIL LIKE CHAFF AND
EARS OF CORN THAT ARE A MIXTURE OF FOOD AND KLIPOT. Such a man knows
nothing of the mysteries of the Torah, but only light and weighty
precepts; the light is the chaff of the Torah, NAMELY THE REFUSE, and
the weighty precepts of the Torah are wheat, WHICH CONTAINS BOTH FOOD
AND REFUSE. CHET AND TET OF WHEAT (HEB. CHITAH) ARE THE REFUSE AND
HEI IS GOOD. THIS IS THE SECRET OF the Tree of Knowledge of Good and
Evil
, AS THE SAGES SAID THAT THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL
WAS WHEAT.

4. It is not the custom of the King and the Matron (Schenah) to ride
a donkey (Heb. chamor), NAMELY THE LITERAL UNDERSTANDING (HEB.
CHOMER) OF THE TORAH, WHICH IS WHEAT AND THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF
GOOD AND EVIL AS MENTIONED. Instead they ride on THE SECRET OF THE
MYSTERIES OF THE TORAH. This is the meaning of, “you ride upon your
horses, your chariots of salvation” (Chavakuk 3:8). For Malchut (the
Schenah) is not treated lightly so as to have the Queen ride on a
donkey, and even more so the King, for it is no place for commoners
and servants, THAT IS METATRON THAT IS CALLED A COMMONER AND A
SERVANT, whose way is to ride a donkey. This is why it says of
Messiah, WHEN YISRAEL WILL HAVE NO MERIT, “humble (Heb. ani), and
riding upon an ass” (Zecharyah 9:9).  Ani stands for the Mishnah
orders of Eruvin, Nidah and Yevamot, THE INITIALS OF WHICH FORM ‘ANI
(ENG. ‘POOR’)’. The rest of the orders of the Mishnah are comprised
in these, WHICH INDICATES THAT AS LONG AS ONE DOES NOT KNOW THE
MYSTERIES OF THE TORAH BUT ONLY THE REVEALED TORAH, ONE IS POOR IN
KNOWLEDGE AND RIDING UPON AN ASS, WHICH IS THE ASPECT OF THE TREE OF
KNOWLEDGE
OF GOOD AND EVIL. THE HOLY ONE, BLESSED BE HE, is not
considered a King until He rides on His horse, which is the
Congregation of Yisrael, NAMELY MALCHUT (the Schenah), ACCORDING TO
THE SECRET OF, “I COMPARE YOU, O MY LOVE, TO A MARE OF THE CHARIOTS
OF PHARAOH” (SHIR HASHIRIM 1:9), WHICH IS WHOLLY GOOD WITHOUT ANY
EVIL.

5.  . . . . . . .  The first man, who did not keep the glory he was
given BY EATING OF THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL, was
brought down to eat together with his donkey, WHICH IS THE ASPECT OF
THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL and he said TO THE HOLY ONE,
BLESSED BE HE, I and my donkey shall eat from the same trough.
Issachar merited this donkey by being called, “Issachar is a strong
ass” (Beresheet 49:14), BECAUSE HE SUBDUED THIS DONKEY CALLED A
STRONG (HEB. GEREM) ASS BY BRINGING HIM DOWN THE STAIRCASE (HEB.
GEREM).

14.  . . . . . . . .  THEN the Holy One, blessed be He, spoke: “And
they shall spread the cloth” (Devarim 22:17), and the parchment of
the Torah scroll unfolds, and they shall see that it is written in
it, “Hew for yourself two tablets of stone like the first, and I will
write upon these tablets the words that were on the first tablets,
which you did break” (Shemot 34:1).

15. Immediately Elijah rose with all the heads of the Yeshivah and
they blessed him. And ELIJAH said TO THE FAITHFUL SHEPHERD, Sinai,
Sinai, it would have been worthy for us to listen to your words and
be silent, yet with permission from the Holy One, blessed be He, and
His Shechinah, I wish to say something to you, in your honor.  He
said to him, speak.

16. ELIJAH opened and said, Faithful Shepherd, the Holy One, blessed
be He gave this bride of yours, NAMELY MALCHUT (the Schenah) to
Abraham to bring up for you. And since he kept her she is called his
daughter. This is what is meant by the saying that Abraham had a
daughter whose name was ‘Bakol (lit. ‘in all’)’. By her he observed
the whole Torah even to the Eruv Tavshilin (an action allowing one to
cook on holiday for Shabbat). This is the meaning of, “and kept My
charge” (Beresheet 26:5). And he brought her up, as written, “And he
brought up Hadassa” (Ester 2:7). And the Holy One, blessed be He,
blessed him for her sake, as written, “and Hashem had blessed Abraham
in all things (Heb. bakol)” (Beresheet 24:1). He brought her up with
every good virtue and was charitable to her. He raised her to
greatness, with the quality of kindness (Chesed) of Abraham. His
house was, for her sake, wide open to do kindness to all the people
of the world.

17. Since he was kind to her, when Abraham’s children were exiled
because of their many iniquities in Egypt, the Holy One, blessed be
He, said, ‘Faithful Shepherd, go and be kind to him who did kindness
by you, since I gave him your bride, WHO IS MALCHUT, to raise with
good qualities’. And he raised her BY DRAWING HER thirteen attributes
of mercy implied in the three words, Vav Hei Vav, Aleph Nun Yud, Vav
Hei Vav, which are THE INITIALS OF Vav, since the 72 names are
comprehended in them AS THE FIRST OF THE 72 NAMES IS VAV HEI VAV, THE
MIDDLE ONE IS ALEPH NUN YUD AND TOWARDS THE END IS THE SECOND VAV HEI
VAV. 72 IS the numerical value of Chesed, with which Abraham overcame
the 72 nations, WHICH ARE THE SEVENTY NATIONS, ESAU AND ISHMAEL.
Through your bride, NAMELY MALCHUT, he had a special property through
the 72 names AFTER MALCHUT RECEIVED THEM, and he overcame every
nation and tongue.

24. The Faithful Shepherd rose and kissed him, ELIJAH, on his face
and his eyes and blessed him. And he said to him, may you be blessed
by the mouth of the Holy One, blessed be He, and His Shechinah, by
each of His attributes and His ten Sfirot and all His names and all
the heads of Yeshivah and all the angels. And they all answered and
said Amen. And the Holy One, blessed be He, and His Shechinah
acknowledged his blessing. Elijah, rise, open your mouth regarding
the precepts with me, because you are my assistant in every aspect,
for it first says of you, “Pinchas, the son of Elazar, the son of
Aaron the priest” (Bemidbar 25:11), BECAUSE PINCHAS IS ELIJAH. Surely
he is the son of Aaron, my nephew, as written, “and a brother is born
for adversity” (Mishlei 17:17).

In each generation Hashem brings back to planet earth a different
(lower) level of the sparks of souls.  That is already changing!,
bottom has been passed, more and more big Neshamot are coming to this
world.  The difference between generations / level of sparks of souls
is reflected in the ways and attitudes of those on two legs.  In this
generation of adults, the way includes extreme ego.  For example its
usual in yeshivas that they obsess upon (not just learn) the lowest
of the low, which shoe to put on first, which shoe lace to tie first,
etc., and also that great ego builder, memorizing the countless rabbi
alephs said in the name of rabbi bets and spewing them forth = I’ve
memorized more than you = I’m better than you = success = ego.

Better to remember the words:  fear only Hashem, love Him with all
your hearts and all your Nefesh, go in all His ways, pray to Hashem
with all your hearts and all your Nefesh, seek My face always, etc
etc.  Not much room (nor need ) for ego building IF we follow His
words instead of the obsession of this generation.  Let us pray that
the “learners” and all His children will come quickly to place proper
emphasis on His words, and the secrets in His words including seek my
face always, and love him with all your hearts and Nefesh.
