Tikkun 49 – 2
“וַיִּקְרָא הָאָדָם שֵׁמוֹת, לְכָל-הַבְּהֵמָה וּלְעוֹף הַשָּׁמַיִם, וּלְכֹל, חַיַּת הַשָּׂדֶה; וּלְאָדָם, לֹא-מָצָא עֵזֶר כְּנֶגְדּוֹ”
“And the man gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found a help meet for him”
Before Eve was separated from Adam’s body, they named all living creatures and by doing that they defined and channeled the energy of all livings. God finished the Creation of the world but he let them define it.
The name is an expression of energy in this world. The word for soul, נשמה, has the letters for name, שם, in it. The name can tell us the essence of the person or living creature that carry that name.
In the verse above we read something that looks like lacking any relation to the first part of it. “וּלְאָדָם, לֹא-מָצָא עֵזֶר כְּנֶגְדּוֹ”, “but for Adam there was not found a help meet for him”. The word for help, עֵזֶר, has the same letters as זרע, meaning ‘seed’.
Every living thing in nature was created with seeds to channel the inner light to create more of the same. Adam knew that something was missing. He couldn’t find a mate to connect with his seeds. Because they were the reason for the whole Creation, they came to life as one, like God. After the process of Creation was completed, Adam and Eve received the power to dominate everything. They had to be separated into two elements of Light and Vessel, male and female. We must have both sides, to create continuation of light.
Immediately after that, in the next verse, God made him fall asleep and separated Eve from his side. Only then, Adam could give a name to his mate. Genesis 2:23 “לְזֹאת יִקָּרֵא אִשָּׁה”, “She shall be called Woman”
As separated, they took the responsibility over Creation but the Torah tells us “And they were both naked”, meaning the complete energy circuit that they had when they were one, disappeared. Now they had to be ‘dressed’ with light in the Garden of Eden with connection to the Tree of Life BUT….you know the rest.
