Upper Covenant between 10 Fingers - Lower Covenant between 10 Toes

Upper Covenant between 10 Fingers - Lower Covenant between 10 Toes
 
He made a covenant with him between the ten toes of his feet-this is the covenant of circumcision-and between the ten fingers of his hand-this is the covenant of the tongue. He bound the twenty-two letters to his tongue and re vealed their foundation. He drew them in water, burned them in fire, agitated them with breath. He ignited them with seven planets, and directed them with twelve constellations.
 
 
The Brit Milah, the male organ, is used to bring a soul down from the upper world and clothe it in a physical body. The father’s sperm, a mother, and HaShem work together to draw a soul down from the upper world. This soul is then given a physical body with which to elevate itself by performing the will of HaShem.
 
The Brit HaLashon, the tongue, is used to bring a soul in a physical body, into the the Olam HaBa, the world to come. A teacher’s words, ears to hear, and HaShem work together to lead a soul from this world into the upper world, the Olam HaBa.
 
In the lower world, physical sperm is used to draw a soul from the upper world and give that soul physical life.
 
In the lower world, non-physical words are used to draw a soul from the lower world and give that soul spiritual life.
