The Zohar reveals to us that when God wanted to create the world, he looked in the Torah, observed it and created the world. Then he looked at the Holy name, which is the entire Torah and brought sustenance to the world.
What we learn from this is that, the Torah, the Hebrew letters, and the name of God existed before the world was created and in fact it was created using the Hebrew letters.
In DZ 1446 I wrote “The letters are embedded in our name and DNA” and was asked by Doris in the comments section to explain it more. Since only a small percentage of readers read the comments, I am repeating my answer with additional comments. It is connected to this study.
In the beginning of the Torah (Genesis 1:3) we read the first command of creation. “And God SAID: ‘Let there be light.’ And there was light.”.
Nothing can be ‘said’ without the existence of the Hebrew letters.
God is not an entity that we can describe in limited forms of words. The letters and words are his creations to provide us with a manifestation tool(s) in the created world.
When God ‘said’, he actually released the power of the Hebrew letters through light. God ‘expressed’ his ‘thoughts’ in the form of building worlds for our souls.
The letters are considered as DNA because from one DNA structure we can create a complete living entity, human or others.
The created world is limited by the power of the 22 Hebrew letters but in the Final redemption we will have additional power through the five final letters, םןץףך. With them, new lights will be revealed in the world.
The material world is constructed from limited basic elements that are listed in the Periodic Table of Elements (http://www.webelements.com/). They are controlled by the power of the Hebrew letters that is the force that holds everything inside the Atom as one unit and gives it atomic value identity.
Let’s look a little bit deeper.
The Endless is the master planner of the world. We can never be able to have any idea about it or grasp its powers and that is why we call it ‘Endless’ or ‘the Holy One Bless Be He’. As created beings with temporary existence we can never understand a state of Endless light but we can study and understand the way the system works through YHVH.
The Endless plan to create the world was designed and powered by the Hebrew letters. It is like an architect that prepares the blue prints and defines the materials for the building. Then, he trains an engineer enabling him with capabilities to do the work and lets him do it.
This is the aspect of what we said earlier, “, he looked in the Torah, observed it and created the world. Then he looked at the Holy name, which is the entire Torah and brought sustenance to the world.”
The Holy Name, which is the entire Torah, is all the Hebrew letters. The YHVH name represents the system that the Endless made to govern the entire creation.
Only through the YHVH name we are able to receive the light of the Endless.
