In Haqdamat Sefer ha-Zohar vol 1:2 It is hard to see how The Zohar compares the words from Shir HaShirim (Song of Songs, 2:12) with what is written in the Torah about the first days of creation
the flower buds appeared on the earth (Shir Hashirim 2:12)
The flower buds are the act of creation , they are the Sefirot that appear and grow within Malchut on the third day of creation that is the Sefira Tifferet That means on the third day of creation Malchut had the same properties or attributes of Tifferet of Zier Anpin Because in Genesis Chapter 1:12
And the earth brought forth grass, herb yielding seed after its kind, and tree bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after its kind; and God saw that it was good.
Because a seed contains the entire flower, the original thought of creation contains the creation as a whole.From start to finish everything is in the original thought of creation.
the Patriarchs Avraham(Hessed), Yitzchak(Gevura) and Yaakov(Tifferet) were also included within the original thought and seed of creation. But they had to conceal themselves because if they were to be seen beforehand , they could not have remained in the world, and the world would not have been able to exist.
Does anyone care about this sort of study or sould I stop?
