“סוֹד יְהוָה לִירֵאָיו וּבְרִיתוֹ לְהוֹדִיעָם.”
“The secret of YHVH is for those who fear Him, And He will make them know His covenant.”
Rabbi Shimon explains this verse, telling us that ‘secret of YHVH’ is the aspect of the Shechina in Malchut and the ‘Covenant’ is the aspect of Yessod of Zeir Anpin that is called ‘covenant’ and both in unification.
The letter י Y of the name (Pronounced Yod) is spelled יוד. The three letters represent the complete YHVH name. The יY represents Chokmah that is the beginning of everything and above the other letters and levels of the name. The second letter ו Vav represents Zeir Anpin that is the Center column that supports and unifies the Right and Left columns. It is the path to the upper levels. The letter דD represents Malchut that is the root of all direction of the Tree of Life. It’s the ‘Garden’ that receives the Life Force from the upper levels.
Faith exists on the level of Malchut and depends on it. The letter ד is small because the small letters represent Malchut. At the same time, Malchut provides the aspect of completion to all the Sefirot above it.
The Ten Sefirot connect in a process from upper to lower. The lowest level is Malchut. Without Malchut they cannot be ‘expressed’ and therefore they ‘depend’ on Malchut.
The letter י is concealed, and when it is revealed, it comes out like a king and his forces. Then the letter י returns to its source by itself, and each revelation is by opening and closing.
The י is the secret of supernal Father and Mother that are concealed, and their Light is revealed through the upper letter ה H of the name that represents Israel Saba (Father, Chokmah) and Tevunah (Mother, Binah) that are the lower aspect of Father and Mother. Kabbalah explains that when Father and Mother push light to Zeir Anpin, it goes through Israel Saba and Tevuna.
When the י Y of Chokmah is revealed, it’s the aspect of the spelled form of the letter יוד. When it’s concealed, it goes back to its natural form, י Y.
To understand the principal of the Yod, close your eyes. This is the aspect of י Yod in its force before it is revealed. When we open the eyes its the aspect of the spelled name of the letter, יוד that is the revealed Light.
Seeds as an aspect of י and when the force in them activates then they have the aspect of יוד.
The YHVH name is revealed differently in the four worlds. The YHVH is the seed for all the light in this world. When the name is spelled, it reveals/expresses the light from the ‘seed’ in different ways.
The chart below shows the different spelling of the name related to the four worlds. The letter Yod of the name is always spelled the same because it’s at the top and the ‘seed’ of all.
