Tikkun 21 – 185
The letter Yod of the name YHVH is the connection to the level of Chokmah that created the foundation of this world. It is the corner stone and the building block of the whole existence. It represents the thought and the actual force of Creation.
“מַגִּיד מֵרֵאשִׁית אַחֲרִית, וּמִקֶּדֶם אֲשֶׁר לֹא-נַעֲשׂוּ; אֹמֵר עֲצָתִי תָקוּם, וְכָל-חֶפְצִי אֶעֱשֶׂה”
“Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done; saying: ‘My counsel shall stand, and all that I want I will make’;”
God’s plans already include the end and whatever has not happened yet, will come to be.
It is so because the creative force always has the ten Sefirot process in its thoughts.
God has one big plan for this world and it is coded in the Torah. If someone thinks that God changed his mind about the spiritual system then he is totally wrong.
If God changes his plan then the whole existence will change. No one, delusional or with a clear mind, can say that God made changes and now the world should follow the system differently. It goes against the natural process of existence. If you say that God created the world and now let other God control it, then it can never be true because the whole world is held in existence by the thought of the Creator. If he lets go of his thought to sustain the world then all existence will go into nothing. It is hard to imagine it, but it is exactly so.
But do not worry, God created the world with an exact plan and all will happen as he encrypted in the Torah and was revealed by the prophets.
There is one God, one act of creation and one spiritual system. We all should be ONE with it as ONE. Then we will merit feeling, seeing and being with the ONE.
The practical lesson of the above two verses is that, to build something with strong hold in Malchut, we must “begin with the end in mind” because it is the way of God.
One would ask “How do you know this to be true? Others may have different theories?”
(A theory is an explanation that is based on facts and accepted concepts.)
My answer is “Be a spiritual scientist! Ask the hard questions. Let none of your spiritual teachers ‘sell’ you their theories without substantial explanation. If you want to see the Light, don’t follow a person that says “I see it”. Ask him for the knowledge to open your eyes. When you see the light with your own mind/eyes, you would feel the elevation and the increase in your ability to see the light in everything. It is better than following someone as a blind man.”
So don’t stay blind. Ask the questions.
