2. The Blossoms / [Flower] Buds

Many spiritual secrets are contained in this next section. The budding and blossoming of a flower reflects the process of creation that unfolds in the Upper World as well as the in Lower World, which is our physical universe. As a seed contains the entire flower, the original thought of creation contains the creation as a whole, including its final and complete perfection. The actual Hebrew letters that speak of these secrets give us the power to perceive the future consequences that are already included in our present actions, just as a flower is already included in a seed.
The Zohar speaks of the great Patriarchs who were also included within the original thought and seed of creation. These spiritual leaders would become the universal conduits by which humanity could connect to the Light of the Creator. The appearance of these great men in the Aramaic text of the Zohar helps to strengthen our connection to the Creator and to our own spiritual roots.

4. "IN THE BEGINNING," Rabbi Shimon quoted the verse, "the flower buds appeared on the earth" (Shir Hashirim 2:12). "The flower buds" refer to the act of creation; "appeared on the earth." When? On the third day, as it is written, "And the earth brought forth" (Beresheet 1:12). Since then, they have been seen on the earth. "The time of pruning has come"The blossom in Hebrew 1 alludes to the fourth day, when the "pruning of the tyrants" (negative forces) took place. THEREFORE OF THIS DAY, IT IS WRITTEN, "LET THERE BE LIGHTS" (Beresheet 1:14), with the letter Vav missing from the word lights. (The Hebrew word 'lights' when written without a vav, can be read as a curse). "And the voice of the turtle dove" (Shir Hashirim 2:12) refers to the fifth day, about which it is written, "Let the waters swarm" (Beresheet 1:20), so they can produce living creatures. "Is heard" (mentioned in Shir Hashirim) refers to the sixth day, on which it says, "Let us make man" (Beresheet 1:26), who shall put action before listening. Because it says here, "Let us make man," while there on Mount Sinai, when Hashem asked the Yisrael about the Torah, they said "we will do, and we will hear (we will try to understand)" (Shemot 24:7). "In our land" (Shir Hashirim 2:12) refers to the day of Shabbat, which represents the Land of Life, which is THE WORLD TO COME.

5. Another explanation is that these blossoms are the Patriarchs who entered the thought of the Creator and went into the future world, NAMELY BINAH, where they were hidden. They emerged from there secretly and hid themselves in the true prophets. Yosef was born and they hid in him. blossoms in Hebrew 2When Yosef entered the Holy Land, he revealed their presence and then "they appeared on the earth" and were seen there. And when are they seen? When the rainbow is seen in the sky. Because when the rainbow is seen, then they appear. And at that moment, "the time of pruning has come." This means that this is the period to annihilate the wicked from the world. But why were the wicked saved? Because the Flower Buds appeared on the earth. If they had not ALREADY appeared SO LONG AGO, (THE WICKED) would not have remained on earth, and the world would have been destroyed.

6. And who sustains the world and causes the Fathers (patriarchs) to appear? It is the voices of the children who study the Torah. And the world is saved (from destruction)The Blossoms 6 in Hebrew for the sake of these children. In deference to them, it is written, "We will make you ornaments of gold" (Shir Hashirim 1:11). This refers to the children, boys and young men, as is written, "And you shall make two cherubim of gold" (Shemot 25:18).
