“אָנֹכִי עָשִׂיתִי אֶרֶץ, וְאָדָם עָלֶיהָ בָרָאתִי; אֲנִי, יָדַי נָטוּ שָׁמַיִם, וְכָל-צְבָאָם, צִוֵּיתִי”
“I made the earth and created man on it; it was my hands that stretched out the heavens, and I commanded all their host.”
The Zohar reveals to us that this statement of God indicates that the world was created for man. ‘Created man on it’ in Hebrew is in the meaning of ‘Created on top of it’ to control it.
“כֹּה-אָמַר הָאֵל יְהוָה, בּוֹרֵא הַשָּׁמַיִם וְנוֹטֵיהֶם, רֹקַע הָאָרֶץ, וְצֶאֱצָאֶיהָ; נֹתֵן נְשָׁמָה לָעָם עָלֶיהָ, וְרוּחַ לַהֹלְכִים בָּהּ”
“Thus says God, YHVH, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it:”
The Creator gave us the ability to draw higher light and have control on earth.
‘who gives breath (נְשָׁמָה Neshamah) to the people on it (עָלֶיהָ in control)’.
‘and spirit (רוּחַ Ruach) to those who walk in it’
There are five levels of light available for the soul but only three levels can be reached while the soul is in a physical body. These levels are Nefesh, Ruach and Neshama.
Nefesh – is the low and basic level that keeps the soul connected to the body and sustains its state of life. Without it a living being have no existence in this world. This level resides in the blood and circulates in the body by the power of the heart. If the blood circulation stops the vessel breaks and the soul leaves the body.
Ruach – is the next level for people who follows the righteous ways of Torah. Their vessel receives the light of Zeir Anpin and greater ability to make spiritual connections and pray for others.
Neshamah – is the higher level and it is reserved for righteous people who have control over their evil inclination and all their actions are of sharing and revealing light in the world. The light comes to their souls from Binah. They have the ability to pray for and heal people. They can create miracles with the power of their mind and words.
