Tikkun 69 – 1
בְּרֵאשִׁית, “In The Beginning”, The Letter ב is the first letter of the Torah and with numerical value of 2 it relates to Chokmah and Binah. The third sefirah is Da’at, meaning ‘Knowledge’. This is the level Adam connected to Eve as father and mother. (Genesis 4:1) “And the man KNEW Eve his wife” .
1 Samuel 2:3 “כִּי אֵל דֵּעוֹת יְהוָה”,”YHVH is God of Knowledge”.
The Sefira of Chokmah is the aspect of Father and Binah is the Mother. When they come together they reveal the Sefira of Da’at. Their unification forms the central column and opens Yessod for the love of the father and mother to flow down to the son, Zeir Anpin and the daughter, Malchut.
“עַל-פִּי שְׁנֵי עֵדִים, אוֹ עַל-פִּי שְׁלֹשָׁה-עֵדִים–יָקוּם דָּבָר”
“at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall a matter be established. ”
The Zohar brings this verse here to tell us that the two, Chokmah and Binah, connect to the third which is Da’at, to make the Central column, which is the aspect of truth.
The word for witness is עד. The two letters are also the first and last letters of the word for column, עמוד, numerical value 120 and it represents the 12 paths in the central column.
The word עד and the duty of witness is to connect us to the truth אמת. It represents the love of the Creator for us.
There are six places in the Torah that we find special letters at the top of the columns. The last one is in Deuteronomy 31:28 “ואעידה” means “and I will be witness…” . It is about bringing the truth to the world at the time of the Final Redemption.
The prayer of the Shema has a large letter ע in the first word and large ד in the last word. This tells us that the Shema connects us directly to the Central column in truth and love.
The snake is a liar and he can not connect to the central column. That is why he dominates the world of Malchut. When we use lies we give him power, truth weakens him and strengthens us.
