Tikkun 21 – 131
When the light is drawn from the right column, Chessed and returned with the left column, Gevurah, it creates unification and holiness. The process of ‘run and return’ is the driving force of the universe and that is why everything is in movement. Making all our actions with continuation creates affinity with the light of the Creator that sustains that movement (the force behind the 137 constant, Electron, Neutron, Proton). We are in the world of Wheels, גלגלים, meaning waves and circles. Wholiness is Holiness. I know that this is not an English word but that explains the concept.
A bride is called כלה, and the name represents ה, for Malchut and כל for Yessod. When the bride comes to connect with the groom she goes into a process that brings holiness as it unifies the right and the left.
The bride circles the groom 7 times, followed by seven blessings to ‘knot’ the 7 sefirot together as one and to connect them to the Tree of Life.
At the night of the wedding, the groom and the bride come together to manifest the earlier process and complete the circle. The groom’s meditation is to draw the light from Zeir Anpin and his soul level of Ruach into the bride. Her meditation is be like an empty vessel, ready to receive and channel the light that was drawn down earlier by the groom. This creates continuation in the world and brings the life and light force to their lives.
This same meditation should be made on every connection even if it is not for the purpose of having children. The light that comes down is like a child and it can manifest in different areas in the life of the couple.
Immediately after God built the woman (וַיִּבֶן יְהוָה) by separating her from Adam’s body, the Torah explains
Genesis 2:24 “עַל-כֵּן, יַעֲזָב-אִישׁ, אֶת-אָבִיו, וְאֶת-אִמּוֹ; וְדָבַק בְּאִשְׁתּוֹ, וְהָיוּ לְבָשָׂר אֶחָד”
“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife, and they shall be one flesh”
Man and woman should seek the state as God created them, one body. That will bring back the original Wholiness. (It’s complicated but soul mates or not, the consciousness should be there.)
A baby grows inside a circular shaped womb and his/her blood is circulated with the mother’s. The divine life force is still in his body when he is born. Before it becomes contaminated by earthly matters, his body and flesh smell divine, especially the head.
