Tikkun 69 – 65
There are nine dots in the Nikkud and when the light comes to all of them, the Shechina becomes the tenth and they all shine together.
The letters are the body that receives the light of the Nikkud at the level of Nefesh that brings life to the vessel.
The horizontal lines in the nikkud, like in the Kamatz for Keter and the Patach for Chokmah are the aspect of the letter Vav and represent restriction that brings mercy and balance with them.
Binah has the Tserei with two horizontal dots to represent equal lights that come from Keter and Chokmah. When it goes down from Binah to Chessed at the right column, it gets some balance with two horizontal and one for continuation below it.
At the level of Gevurah the light is pulled down in a faster pace and at Tiferet we have two faces to the Nikkud
In most cases the last letter of a Hebrew word doesn’t get a vowel because it is the END of the word and have no continuation of light.
Malchut doesn’t have a light of its own and is dependent on earning process to draw light from above.
To understand the power of Nikkud we read Genesis 1:3
“ וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים, יְהִי אוֹר; וַיְהִי-אוֹר”
“And God said: ‘Let there be light.’ And there was light.”
The word אוֹר ,”Light” without Nikkud is אור and we can not reveal it unless we put a Nikkud in the right place. In this case it is a Cholam in the middle.
Saying words means bringing light into the vessel and give them life. God has created the world for us with 10 sayings of “וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים” “And God said”.
We are in the world of “Asiah”, which is action and nothing can be moved unless we bring life into it. By reading and listening to the Zohar, we draw light from the upper Sefirot into our lives.
