Tikkun 22 – 20
Song of Songs 8:6
“שִׂימֵנִי כַחוֹתָם עַל-לִבֶּךָ, כַּחוֹתָם עַל-זְרוֹעֶךָ”
“Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm;”
What we see as human beings are patterns of energy fields held together as one unit by the soul of the person that comes out of the Creator’s thought.
When God said in Genesis 1:26
“וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים, נַעֲשֶׂה אָדָם בְּצַלְמֵנוּ כִּדְמוּתֵנוּ”
“And God said: ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness”
God (Elokim) said ‘Let us (plural, who is us?) make a man (one human being), in our (who is our? What or which gods?), after our likeness (like the gods?).
The answer is very simple and like we explained in previous article, God is one simple and undivided light. In our world this light is expressed in different forms to define and bring the individual parts into existence.
In our mind we have unlimited thoughts and visions that exist in one place. They can not be detected in the physical brain no matter how small we dissect it. Only when we wish to bring it out we start to put the thought into shapes using words, actions etc.
The images of God are the different names that represent different levels/expressions of the light in this world.
The word for image in the above verse is “צלם”, which has the same numerical value of ‘tree’, עץ that is reference to the Tree of Life.
