Daily Zohar # 2981 – Pekudei – Who threw the first stone
“יְפֵה נוֹף מְשׂוֹשׂ כָּל הָאָרֶץ הַר צִיּוֹן יַרְכְּתֵי צָפוֹן קִרְיַת מֶלֶךְ רָב”
“Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, Is Mount Zion in the far north, The city of the great King.”
When God created the world, he threw one stone from under his throne and sank it into the abyss.
One head of this stone is in the depth of the abyss, and the other head is high above. The supreme head is a dot that stands in the middle of the world. From that point, the world spread to the right, left and in all directions. The middle point is called ‘אֶבֶן הַשְּׁתִיָּה’ ‘The Drinking Stone.’ It is the root of the whole world that spread in all directions.
Around the middle point, the world spread in three colors. The first spread had all the fine and pure levels of the world. The second spread was around the first one, and it was a little bit condensed and not as fine and pure as the first one. The third spread was of darkness and dense land. Around it was the water of the ocean surrounding the whole world.
Tikunei Zohar explains that the word “In the Beginning”,”ברא שית” means ‘Created Six’ about the six days of Creation. The seventh is Shabbat, Machut represented by the letter הH.
The three letters ‘שית’ + the letter ‘ה’ make the word ‘שתיה’ ‘Drinking.’
The Hebrew letters are called ‘stones’ because they are the building blocks of this world. The letter Yod י is the ‘stone’ that is referred by the Zohar. It comes from the letters שית of the first word of the Torah that represent the entire Creation. The letter ש is constructed from three Yods extended as the letter Vav, and it represents the three columns. The ת is the last letter of the Alef-bet and it represents Malchut.
From the point/head that the Yod reached Malchut, the whole world was founded. That point is called “The Drinking stone,” “אבן השתיה.” Scientists describe this point as the middle point of the Big Bang theory.
The letters שת mean base, foundation and the י Yod with the numerical value of 10 represents the Light that emanates from Keter through evolvement of 10 Sefirot.
