THE WORLD OF ASIYYAH (ACTION)
(Last updated 7/27/01)
Asiyyah (Action) is the last of the four worlds and emerges out of Yezirah. Asiyyah is the world that Adam and Eve entered when they were expelled from Eden. The "coats of skin" that Scripture says they were given, were physical bodies (flesh) they needed to live in the world of Asiyyah. (Conversely, we will be given new bodies one day, such as Adam and Eve originally had, upon our return to Eden/Yezirah. i.e., 1 Corinthians, chapter 15).
With the emergence of Asiyyah, existence is complete. Everything was brought into being originally within World of Beriah/Creation, with the exception of Man who is "made in the Image of God." Man's origin is in accordance with the Divine Sephirot of Azilut, making him unique within all of Creation.
Man is also the only creature that can transcend his present level and connect to all four worlds. This is in fact "the meaning of life," as we are told that we are to be, "conformed to the image of God." (The image as seen in Azilut and reflected in Yeshua (i.e., Metatron) - i.e., Romans 8:29; 1 Corinthians 15:49; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Colossians 1:15; Colossians 3:10; Hebrews 1:3).
This image we are to be conformed to, began in the Divine Azilut, then descended to Beriah where it was given Spirit, then down toYezirah where it received a Soul, and finally to Asiyyah and given a physical body. Conversely, our journey to "reconnect," or be "re-conformed," begins by escaping the physical world, via the soul, into a spiritual connection with God, and one day to be "one with Him" again (i.e., John, chapter 17).
As Asiyyah is the material universe in which we live, it is associated with the aspect of earth (and of blood), and therefore the color red (i.e., "Adam," which means "red.").
