וּבֹא וּרְאֵה, בְּשָׁעָה שֶׁרָצָה הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא לִבְרֹא אָדָם, כָּךְ הָיָה רוֹצֶה לַעֲשׂוֹת אוֹתוֹ כְּמוֹ דְמוּתוֹ, בְּלִי עֶרְוָה וּבְלִי פֶרֶץ וּפֵרוּד, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר נַעֲשֶׂה אָדָם בְּצַלְמֵנוּ כִּדְמוּתֵנוּ, שֶׁיִּהְיוּ כָּל הַסְּפִירוֹת כְּלוּלוֹת בּוֹ, בְּלִי פֵרוּד וְקִצּוּץ, וּלְהִתְיַחֵד בֵּן עִם בַּת שֶׁהֵם אַחִים, שֶׁעֲלֵיהֶם נֶאֱמַר אַחִים תְּאוֹמִים, זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב וְיִהְיוּ תֹאֲמִם מִלְּמַטָּה וְיַחְדָּו יִהְיוּ תַמִּים עַל רֹאשׁוֹ, בְּאֵיזֶה מָקוֹם? אֶל הַטַּבַּעַת, זוֹ הַטַּבַּעַת שֶׁל אוֹת בְּרִית מִילָה, שֶׁהוּא שִׁעוּר לְכָל הָעֲרָיוֹת לְמַטָּה, וְשִׁעוּר שֶׁל הַיִּחוּד לְמַעְלָה, וּלְמַעְלָה נֶאֱמַר בּוֹ וְלָקַח גַּם מֵעֵץ הַחַיִּים וְאָכַל וָחַי לְעוֹלָם, אֲבָל לְמַטָּה נֶאֱמַר בּוֹ וּמֵעֵץ הַדַּעַת טוֹב וָרָע לֹא תֹאכַל מִמֶּנּוּ, אַל תְּעָרֵב בַּיִּחוּד טוֹב עִם רָע, וְאִם לֹא, מוֹת תָּמוּת. נֶאֱמַר כָּאן מוֹת תָּמוּת, וְנֶאֱמַר בְּשַׁבָּת מְחַלֲלֶיהָ מוֹת יוּמָת.

Tikkun 56 – 9

Genesis 1:26
“וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים, נַעֲשֶׂה אָדָם בְּצַלְמֵנוּ כִּדְמוּתֵנוּ”
“And God said: ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness”
(Interesting is that the creation of Adam mentioned in verse 1:26, which is the number of letters in the three hands of God. 126 is also equal to 42 times 3.)

God’s original plan was to create Adam in his own image, menaing complete, without and lack or separation of energies. Adam was suppose to be as one with ten Sefirot of Light.
A wrong choice created a disconnection at the level of Yessod when they had unification before they entered into the Shabbat realm of Binah to bring the light to Malchut.

Adam was born in the image of God, which is the Tree of Life. To exercise the free will Eve, which was the aspect of Malchut had to be separated from him. Adam needed to connect Yessod to Malchut but only after the Yessod level in him was ready, which was suppose to be at the end of Friday. Only then he would be able to channel the light to Malchut. The Snake interfere and created the ערוה,”Nakedness” (Genesis 3:7) “And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked”. The Hebrew word in the Torah עֵירֻמִּם is misspelled. The letter Yod moved three places back to tell us that the drop, the dot and the power of life was misplaced.

They lost the opportunity to connect to the Tree of Life until the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai and then we missed it again.

The sex act can be the highest spiritual connection and also the most negative. The highest pleasure can give us a touch of the Tree of Life. On the other hand if the connection is impure and with negative consciousness then it connects us to the ‘bad’ of the Tree of Knowledge and bring the ‘death’ aspect to our lives.
