Tikkun 69 – 43
“נֶאֱלַמְתִּי דוּמִיָּה, הֶחֱשֵׁיתִי מִטּוֹב; וּכְאֵבִי נֶעְכָּר”
“I was dumb with silence; I held my peace, had no comfort; and my pain was held in check”
When we are dumb to the voice of God, we distance ourselves from its light and all that is good. This is a state of Exile and cause a lack of light that brings pain.
The time of exile is the aspect of the letters without the Nikkud (vowels). They are in a ‘sleep’ state like it said in Song of Songs 5:2 “I sleep, but my heart wake”. When we bring the Nikkud, which is the light that brings life to the letters, we are ‘awake’. To open our heart for this light, King David wrote 10 different types of Psalms. They bring the ‘pulse’ (דופק) of light and the ‘voice’ of God back to us.
Deeper secrets from this section:
From Adam Kadmon’s ‘ear’ אזן, which is the aspect of Binah of Adam Kadmon, the light spread to his ‘nose’ and formed the Six Sefirot of מ”ה, numerically 45 and the ten letters of the spelled name יוד-הא-ואו-הא, formed the 10 Sefirot of the world of ‘Akudim’,’עקודים’. With the 22 letters we get the value of 32 in the mouth of AK. The light started the ‘pulse’ of life with 32 equal ‘heart’ לב and the vibrations of the “Havalim””הבלים” from the ‘voices’ brought to life the world of Atzilut followed by the other worlds below.
The first step in the creation of the world was silent, only when AK revealed the letters and the Ten Sefirot, the ‘Big Bang’ happened together with the element of time.
