Tikkun 21 – 117
(Continuing previous Daily Zohar subject # 366 on)
Jeremiah 14:8 “מִקְוֵה, יִשְׂרָאֵל, מוֹשִׁיעוֹ, בְּעֵת צָרָה”
“the pool of water, Israel, Its salvation in time of trouble.”
From the source of the supernal waters, Chokmah, a drop, which is the Yod, comes down through the levels and each Sefira takes its part from this drop. The tenth part is for Malchut, which is the dry land and vessel (we discussed in previous daily zohar).
The tenth is the process that we should correct and elevate with our actions. This is the reason we tithe. We must elevate the tenth up to the spiritual. If we keep it down, then there is no returning light and revelation.
To bring life to this world we draw a drop of light from our brain down through all the levels of the body and out through the level of Yessod, which is the penis in our body. The male brings the water to the female, the dry land and the vessel.
The vessel is described as ‘dry land’ because it depends on the male waters to be ‘fruitful’.
The man’s semen is called זרע, literally means seed. The first two letters have the numerical value of light אור and the letter ע is 70 to represent the world of action and the length of the base tikkun process in Malchut. The man’s seed is light transferred to Malchut to bring life.
This also explains Genesis 2:18 “וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים, לֹא-טוֹב הֱיוֹת הָאָדָם לְבַדּוֹ; אֶעֱשֶׂה-לּוֹ עֵזֶר, כְּנֶגְדּוֹ”
“And YHVH ELHYM said: ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help for him.’”
The keyword here is עֵזֶר and כְּנֶגְדּוֹ which brings the parallel duties of the men and the women. This is also why when Adam was created we see the name YHVH first time appear in the Torah.
