Tikkun 56 – 15
“וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים, לֹא-טוֹב הֱיוֹת הָאָדָם לְבַדּוֹ; אֶעֱשֶׂה-לּוֹ עֵזֶר, כְּנֶגְדּוֹ”
“And the YHVH God said: ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him”
The original Hebrew of “I will make him a help meet for him” is “אֶעֱשֶׂה-לּוֹ עֵזֶר, כְּנֶגְדּוֹ” and it has deeper meaning. The word כְּנֶגְדּוֹ ‘meet for him’ is properly translated to ‘parallel to him’ or ‘against him’ as in ‘in front of him’ and also as opposition to him.
The separation of male and female is the aspect of the Tree of Knowledge Good and Bad. The good side comes from the Tree of Life and the Bad side of the Tree is opposition, challenges and obstacles.
The Zohar tells us that if a person merits it, his wife will support him and together they’ll be in the frame of the Tree of Life (Ecclesiastes 9:9) “רְאֵה חַיִּים עִם-אִשָּׁה אֲשֶׁר-אָהַבְתָּ”, “Enjoy LIFE with the wife whom thou lovest”.
If he doesn’t have the merit then he will experience hardship with his wife.
The solution is described six verses later in 2:24 “וְדָבַק בְּאִשְׁתּוֹ, וְהָיוּ לְבָשָׂר אֶחָד” “and shall cleave unto his wife, and they shall be one flesh” with unity and unification they can connect to the Tree of Life.
