Noach: Chapter 26

"And Noah went...into the ark"


Here the Zohar reveals the concept of Evil Eye. Evil Eye pertains to the negative glances and resentful looks that we receive from those who may harbor envious feelings. The Kabbalist attributes the majority of common ailments and misfortunes to Evil Eye. When we cast the Evil Eye towards others, we create an opening within ourselves that attracts even more negative glances. We ourselves become more vulnerable to its effects, and a vicious circle is created. This action brings equal harm to both the bearer of Evil Eye and to the recipient.
