Tikkun 51 – 1
“בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא אֱלֹהִי”ם אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ’
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
The word אֵת can have the meaning of ‘the’, ‘with’, and ‘and’. It connects two or more things together. By itself, the two letters of את are the first and the last letter of the Alef Bet and now the Zohar reveasl to us that the first את in the verse represents the whole Torah with all the twenty two letters. With ,את the heavens and the earth were created.
The heavens is the aspect of the Holy one and the upper levels, the earth is the aspect of the female and the vessel that gives the ability to bring out seeds and fruits.
Rabbi Shimon tells his son that there is a supernal secret here. He revealed that everything was created and based on the YHVH name and the secret of ‘The Heavens’ is יה YH and ‘The Earth’ וה VH. But even then there was no flow of light until man came to the world,
“וְכֹל שִׂיחַ הַשָּׂדֶה, טֶרֶם יִהְיֶה בָאָרֶץ, וְכָל-עֵשֶׂב הַשָּׂדֶה, טֶרֶם יִצְמָח: כִּי לֹא הִמְטִיר יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים, עַל-הָאָרֶץ, וְאָדָם אַיִן, לַעֲבֹד אֶת-הָאֲדָמָה”
“No shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of the field had yet sprung up; for YHVH God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground;”
God did not bring the rain (light) to earth to grow the field (Malchut) because man was not yet there to work it.
A simple example to understand that, is having the power source and the tools to build something but having no one to do it. The male energy is the activator of the light and the female is the producer. If they don’t come together in unity, no seeds or fruits can come to existence.
Having good ideas in your mind won’t get them manifested until you take actions.
