Tikkun 67 – 4
“זֹאת, הַתּוֹרָה, אָדָם, כִּי-יָמוּת בְּאֹהֶל”
“This is the law: when a man dies in a tent”
An elder appears to Rabbi Shimon and asks him, “The Torah existed before the world was created so why does it say in the Torah ‘When a Man dies in a tent’”?
Rabbi Shimon replies that it is true, but the souls existed before the world was created. The soul existence means that the Creation of man was obvious.
When it said in Genesis 1:1 “In the Beginning”, it references to the beginning of the soul at the level of Neshamah.
There are men that connect to the upper level of the soul of Neshama. There are men that connect to the body and on them it was said “man die in a tent”. It was also said on them in Jeremiah 17:5
“כֹּה אָמַר יְהוָה, אָרוּר הַגֶּבֶר אֲשֶׁר יִבְטַח בָּאָדָם, וְשָׂם בָּשָׂר, זְרֹעוֹ; וּמִן-יְהוָה, יָסוּר לִבּוֹ”
“Thus said YHVH: Cursed is the man that trust in man, and make flesh his arm, and whose heart departs from YHVH”
“and make flesh his arm” is the connection to the negative side and the minister of all negativity Sama-el.
