Tikkun 21 – 10
Psalms 104:25 “זֶה, הַיָּם גָּדוֹל– וּרְחַב יָדָיִם:
שָׁם-רֶמֶשׂ, וְאֵין מִסְפָּר; חַיּוֹת קְטַנּוֹת, עִם-גְּדֹלוֹת.”
“Yonder sea, great and wide,
therein are creeping things innumerable, living creatures, both small and great.”
Proverb 30:19 “דֶּרֶךְ הַנֶּשֶׁר, בַּשָּׁמַיִם– דֶּרֶךְ נָחָשׁ, עֲלֵי-צוּר;
דֶּרֶךְ-אֳנִיָּה בְלֶב-יָם– וְדֶרֶךְ גֶּבֶר בְּעַלְמָה”
“The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a young woman.”
This verse tells us about four connections of the YHVH in our world. The first two are male representations of the name. Yod (Chokmah), Vav (Zeir Anpin), H (Binah) and H (Malchut).
The ship is a vessel and it represents Malchut. Midst is לב and Sea is ים.
לב is 32 and it refers to the 32 paths of wisdom revealed in the Torah from the 32 times the name Elokim appears in the story of Creation.
Sea is the aspect of Binah.
The Zohar is the ‘sea’ (Light of Binah) that comes out from the Torah. When we ‘swim’ in the Zohar and study from it we connect to the protection of the supernal waters like a fetus in his mother’s womb.
