Daily Zohar # 3742 – Beresheet – The day the desire for fulfilment created
Upper waters are male and lower waters are female. Initially, they were mixed until they were separated and placed in their location.
The upper water with the name, אֱלֹהִים ELHYM is Binah and the upper letter הH of the name. The lower water with the name אדני ADNY, Malchut, and the lower letter הH of the name.
“וַיַּעַשׂ אֱלֹהִים אֶת הָרָקִיעַ וַיַּבְדֵּל בֵּין הַמַּיִם אֲשֶׁר מִתַּחַת לָרָקִיעַ וּבֵין הַמַּיִם אֲשֶׁר מֵעַל לָרָקִיעַ וַיְהִי כֵן.”
“Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament, and it was so.”
This verse tells about the expansion of the waters to above and below. That action that made male and female waters caused the name אֱלֹהִים ELHYM to expand everywhere.
Even though the waters were separated into upper and lower waters, the dispute and division between them were not settled until the third day, when both were in their proper place. Because of the clash of the two sides and the incomplete action, the Torah doesn’t say on the second day, “and God saw that it was good,” as written on the other days. When the waters were mixed together as one, there was no fruition in the world until they were separated to male and female.
The world of Tikkun requires males and females to act together and become ‘fruitful.’ The female is the aspect of a vessel that receives and manifests, and the male is the aspect of the channel of Light for the vessel.
Separating the waters created the dynamics and relationship between male and female waters to manifest ‘fruits’ in this world.
The desire in Malchut, the vessel, is raising female waters and drawing male waters to nourish the lower levels and fulfill the desire.
