One type like Isaac Luria used the Tree of Life as a map that spans the four worlds, and to each world there is also a Tree of 10 sephiroth. But those Kabbalists, like Joseph Gikatilla and Moses ben Leon, who knew the diagram of the Seven Palaces conceived of a different and most secret arrangement of the four worlds. The highest world of Atziluth was formless and the realm of Hashem. Nothing could be said of it. The world of Beriah was the world of the spirits of the holy alephbet, or the malakhim.
We shall now examine in detail the different stages of the chain order of creation once Tzimtzum had created the vacuum within which finite creation could come about. In order to describe these stages and draw their comprehension closer to our understanding, we shall use an analogy from a builder. Imagine a couple has an idea that they want to build the ideal house for themselves and their family. The idea struck them totally out of the blue. In a flash they had a picture in their mind of a state-of-the-art palatial home with gardens and a pool.
As any study on the mysteries of God is a subjective explanation of an objective reality, there is no one "right explanation" or "perfect system" in Kabbalah study. As Rav Sha'ul Paul said, "We all see darkly, as through a glass. As complex as the material we present on this web site may seem, it only scratches the surface of these mystical areas of study. We hope to present enough material to provide a foundation for understanding some of the themes hidden in the text of the book of Revelation. Please consult our YashaNet Reading List for suggested study materials. Students are also encouraged to contact us for recommendations and with any questions. These are based on root words that describe attributes of God manifested in the Divine world see "Azilut" below. The term "Sephirot" itself has been defined in many ways, including; emanations, powers, crowns, numbers, degrees, garments, faces of God , and vessels. As discussed in an earlier study , there are multiple names given to each Sephirah. The Tree of Life particularly the seven lower Sephirot , is also associated with the "Seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth" Revelation , also known as God's seven eyes.
