Yod י New creation

Imagine that a blank page represents God in all his perfection. God is! There is no introduction to God. He just is. [1] If we touch the page and draw on it, it no longer represents God. If we put our hand to it, in God's estimation, we pollute it. God said not to make a graven image. [a][b][q 1][a 1]

Now consider the blank page as representing God before he decided to create. Where can God create the universe? There is no container for God. He is too big. [c][q 2][a 2] The blank page that we hold up must be imagined to be infinitely wide and infinitely tall. Where can God create? There is no place which God does not fill already. [q 3][a 3]

The yod י represents the first thought of creation and is the smallest letter of the Hebrew alphabet. [d] It contains everything that God wished to accomplish. The yod י not only contains all the physical elements of time, chance and matter, like scientific the notion of the Big Bang, but it also contains the revelation of the personality and character of God, as well as the potential for every thought that has been thought or spoken.

When God first started to create, he had to open a void within himself; [e] a place to put things. There was no place else to do it. He made room for us within himself. This is represented by a yod on the page. Everything else that was created was created in and from this void. [q 4][a 4]

This first thing that springs forth from the yod is the alphabet. Each letter starts by first drawing a yod י, then a vav ו. All the other letters are yods and vavs combined. Then from the alphabet, words are formed; and using the words, God commanded all else to spring into existence. [2][q 5][a 5]

The name yod יד means 'hand' which is a metaphor for works. [f][v 1] Creation is the work of God.
