SPIRIT, THOUGHT, SPEECH AND ACTION.

 

Numerical value: 5

 

Number five represents the five levels of the soul: “nefesh”, “ruaj”, “neshama”, “jaia”, and “iejida”. This last mentioned level is “dos pintele id” or the Divine Spark that exists in every Jewish person, the brilliant spark that unites him with Hashem. The iejida drives a person back to his roots, pushes a person to the path of teshuva.

 

Form: three lines; the two lines of the dalet together with an unattached left iud.

 

The soul possesses three means of expression or “garments”: thought, speech and action. The upper horizontal line symbolizes thought, the right vertical line corresponds to speech and the unattached iud is related to action.

 

The separation of action from thought reflects a deep truth about the nature of action. “Many are the thoughts in the heart of man, yet the advice of God shall surely stand”. Man experiences the existential gap between his thoughts and deeds. Often he is unable to realize his inner intentions. Other times he is surprised by unexpected success. In both cases he feels the hand of God directing his deeds. The gap is the experience of the Divine Nothing, the source of all Creation in deed: something from nothing.
