Tikkun 66 – 9
The light that emanates from the Tree of Life is in total unity. Transferring this light to the other side, establishes the existence of the Tree of Knowledge Good and Bad and nourishes negativity with the light of life. It gives them power and increase the forces that cause separation in the world.
This is the secret law that the Torah forbade us to move from the authority of ONE to the MANY, (public domain) and vise versa. This situation mixes the pure light with negativity and it causes corruption in the spiritual system in both individual and global levels.
For that reason, Rabbi Elazar said that because we live in the world of the Tree of Knowledge, we are forbidden from calling names of angels or using holy names.
Rabbi Shimon explains that in the Garden of Eden the Tree of Knowledge existed and Adam and Eve could connect to it without a problem Genesis 2:16 “And YHVH God commanded the man, saying: ‘Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat; ”. After the sin, they fell and got mixed with the Tree of Knowledge. This situation forced the state of exile from the Tree of Life and made them like idol worshipers. Now all connections to the Holy names should be in concealment and in purity.
A known example of Holy name concealment is the name YHVH. We are not allowed to say it and we replace it with ADNY while scanning the higher name with our eyes.
Another example is using the Ana B’Koach. The actual Holy name has 42 letters and they are concealed at the beginning of each word of the Ana B’Koach. At the end of each line of 6 words we scan with our eyes and meditate on the six letter sequence that connects us to the related Sefirah.
The Torah and the Zohar has a lot of concealed names. When we scan the sacred text we are connected on a higher and pure state of connection with no risk of drawing negativity from the ‘Bad’ side of the Tree of Knowledge.
