“וַיֹּאמֶר” “And God said…”, the voice starts in the Endless, silent as ‘thought’ and when it comes to Binah that is the force “אֱלֹהִים” “God”, it comes outside as a sound.
“יְהִי אוֹר” “Let there be Light”. The first two letters YH יהrepresent Father, Chokmah and Binah, Mother. The letter Yי that follows tells that Y י returned to the beginning and the Light “אוֹר” became “אֲוִיר” that means “Air”. This process created the first movement of air in the world and the voice could be expressed as sound.
The first Light that was revealed with the first command of Creation existed in Keter before it penetrated the space of Creation. It was the ‘seed’ that was delivered from Father to Mother, Binah, ‘impregnated’ her and created the six sefirot of Zeir Anpin and Malchut represented as the seven days of Creation.
The Ari revealed that in order to create the worlds, the Endless distant itself from a middle point in equal measure to all directions in the form of a sphere. That was the first Tzimtzum. Then from a single point called Keter, the first Light penetrated the world with the Light that formed the ten sefirot and worlds.
We will study that in great detail in the course of the Tree of Life.
