Ashrei 5: Zohar HaKodesh
In a powerful Zohar (Volume 1, page 208a) we are taught a deeper meaning to the verse, “The eyes of all look to You, and You give them their bread in its time”. “A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it separated into four heads.” The river represents the abundant influence of the first six Heavenly emanations. That Divine Influence waters the garden of the attribute of Malchut (Kingship), which unites everything just as the king unites the nation. The Influence is then divided according to the need of each person. This is the true meaning of the verse when it says that God “gives them their bread in its time”, meaning each person receives the Divine Influence that is most appropriate to him or her.
The Zohar is teaching us that with the appropriate clarity and awareness we can access the highest and purest levels of Divine Abundance.
