Tikkun 53 – 1
In בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא אֱלֹהִי”ם, “In the beginning God created…” we find בת ו אם, the letters for Daughter and mother.
The beginning of Creation started with the Shechina at the lower levels and the Supernal Mother, which is Binah. Both share the letter Hה from the name as a vessel to carry the light and continue it.
“וַיִּיצֶר יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים אֶת-הָאָדָם, עָפָר מִן-הָאֲדָמָה, וַיִּפַּח בְּאַפָּיו, נִשְׁמַת חַיִּים; וַיְהִי הָאָדָם, לְנֶפֶשׁ חַיָּה”
“Then YHVH God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
God formed the man on two levels: spiritual, which is upper and physical, which is lower. The spiritual is the image of God as the Tree of Life system and the physical appearance is what is held together and maintained by the blood system.
The Garden of Eden was created for man as connection between the spiritual and physical. It is the aspect of the Torah that keeps the two aspects of existence together.
