Tikkun 61 – 1
Genesis 1:1 “בְּרֵאשִׁית, בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים, אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם, וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ”
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth ”
בראשית, “In the Beginning” is the original thought. God, אלהים, is the supernal mother and the force of action. Both represent Love and Awe. “The Heavens” is the sound and ‘The Earth’ is the speech.
Y – Thought – Father
H – Action – Mother
V – Sound – Son – Male
H – Speech – Daughter – Female
The thought is revealed with action and sound with speech.
Adam and Eve sinned on all of these levels. They created separation between Mother and Father with their thoughts and actions. They created separation between themselves when they connected first with the Snake.
“ וַיִּשְׁמְעוּ אֶת-קוֹל יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים, מִתְהַלֵּךְ בַּגָּן לְרוּחַ הַיּוֹם וַיִּתְחַבֵּא הָאָדָם וְאִשְׁתּוֹ, מִפְּנֵי יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים, בְּתוֹךְ, עֵץ הַגָּן”
“And they heard the VOICE of YHVH God walking in the garden toward the spirit (Ruach) of the day; and the man and his wife HID themselves from the presence of YHVH God amongst the tree of the garden.”
The Voice of God is the central colum that is Zeir Anpin. When Adam and Eve sinned they got disconnected from the Garden. They ‘Hid’ amongst the tree, which is the Tree of Knowledge Good and Bad. At this level there is no direct connection to the YHVH that is the Tree of Life. They could no longer see or have a direct connection to YHVH. They drew judgment upon themselves and YHVH’s יהוה sound/voice turned to ADNY אדני. When we rearrange the letters we read the word judgment ‘דינא’. Fםר אישא רקשדםמ we are not allowed to utter the name YHVH and instead we use ADNY.
Each time we say the name of God as ADNY we should look or envision the name YHVH to transform judgment to mercy.
