Tikkun 25 – 8
Song of Songs 6:11
“…אֶל-גִּנַּת אֱגוֹז יָרַדְתִּי ”, “I went down into the garden of nuts …”
Nut has a hard shell that we need to break in order to get to and enjoy the rich fruit inside. The ‘garden of nuts’ is a symbol to the world of Malchut and the work that we need to do to reveal the light.
Song of Songs 2:3
“כְּתַפּוּחַ בַּעֲצֵי הַיַּעַר, כֵּן דּוֹדִי בֵּין הַבָּנִים; בְּצִלּוֹ חִמַּדְתִּי וְיָשַׁבְתִּי, וּפִרְיוֹ מָתוֹק לְחִכִּי ”
“As an apple-tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. Under its shadow I delighted to sit, and its fruit was sweet to my taste”
When the Mashiach comes down to the Shechina he will break all the shells, which are the Klipot, and all negativity to reveal the light and heal all ills.
The Zohar explains this ascendant of the light to the world as the aspect of the Eagle from the Holy Creatures. The Eagle comes down from the Holy throne and represents the central column and the aspect of mercy in this world. This explains the verse in Exodus 19:4 “אַתֶּם רְאִיתֶם, אֲשֶׁר עָשִׂיתִי לְמִצְרָיִם; וָאֶשָּׂא אֶתְכֶם עַל-כַּנְפֵי נְשָׁרִים, וָאָבִא אֶתְכֶם אֵלָי ”
“You have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bore you on EAGLES’ WINGS, and brought you unto Myself. ”
