Week 4: Characters from Winnie the Pooh
Day 28: – Eeyore – Malchut
Though Eeyore’s character is ‘male’ (despite the pink bow) his character exemplifies characteristics of Malchut, and thus the ‘Shekinah’ in many ways.
- Like the Sefirah of Malchut, Eeyore does not exhibit that much in his own attributes.
- He is the ‘recipient’ of the actions of all those ‘above’ him – which impacts his mood. (Everything descends into Malchut.)
- Unlike the others, he walks on the ground on all fours. (The Shekinah connects to the ‘four corners’ of the world.)
- His sense of separation causes despair, like the Shekinah in exile, reflected in many of David’s thoughts and writings.
