Tikkun 69 – 79
“ כֹּה-אָמַר יְהוָה מֶלֶךְ-יִשְׂרָאֵל וְגֹאֲלוֹ, יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת: אֲנִי רִאשׁוֹן וַאֲנִי אַחֲרוֹן, וּמִבַּלְעָדַי אֵין אֱלֹהִים”
“Thus saith YHVH, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer YHVH of hosts: I am (אֲנִי) the first, and I am (אֲנִי) the last, and beside Me there is no God.”
The first ‘I am’, אֲנִי, is related to the Endless with the letters אין of אין סוף. The Second ‘I am’, אֲנִי, is the state of self consciousness, related to individuality and the world of Action, Malchut, which is the end and the purpose of Creation.
The three drops from the highest level and the three Yods below them made six ,“שית”, corrections that God used for Creation. The Yod י from the שית, got separated to create the central column continuing the light to the world of Malchut. From that point where the Yod reached Malchut, the whole world was founded. The code word of this state is “The Drinking stone”, “אבן השתיה”. It is also what scientists describe as the middle point of the Big Bang.
The letters שת means base, foundation and the י Yod with numerical value of 10 represents the Light that emanates form Keter throught evolvement of 10 Sefirot.
The Zohar reveals to us that Joseph was seduced by the wife of Potiphar who was an officer of Pharaoh. Her power on him was so strong that he almost transferred her ten holy sparks whose source was from the Yod of the Drinking Stone. The Image of his father appeared to him before he lost the energy to her. To stop himself, he pushed his hands into the ground to release the ten drops through his fingers so that light won’t go to the negative side. The energy was grounded but even though he saved the channel of Yessod, he was punished by not having 10 children, leaders of tribes. The correction of the ten drops came later as the Ten Martyrs that had to die in horrible circumstances to redeem the ten sparks.
