(Hebrew בראשית) The first word of the Bible "Bereshith" has six letters and is translated in common English as “In the beginning" and in Greek as "Genesis." Yet in Kabbalah, the meaning of this word has yet to be fully explored, because it contains a treasure trove of meanings.

For example, according to Kabbalah:

  • “Be” = The

  • “Raishath” = "Higher, or Upper Wisdom,” which in Daath is related to the Sephirah Chokmah: the Cosmic Cognizance that is always creating is hidden within the letter "Vav".

So the "Higher, or Upper Wisdom" which is hidden within the six Hebrew letters of the word Barashith, which is the creative power of (Iod-Havah Elohim in Daath) created the Heaven and the Earth. Chokmah, the "Higher, or Upper Wisdom" of the Elohim (Gods and Goddesses), is related to creation in Briah. In Daath is where the Heavenly Man is created = Heaven. ‘And’ in Yesod in the SIXTH DAY, the Terrestrial man Adam was created from Adama = the Earth.
