371. "Who makes the clouds (Heb. avim) His chariot" (Tehilim 104:3). Rabbi Yesa divides avim INTO Av and Yam. THIS MEANS THAT Av (cloud), which is darkness FROM THE left, rests on this Yam (sea). In the phrase: "Who walks upon the wings of the wind" (Ibid.), the wind (or spirit) belongs to the supernal Temple. This is the secret of the verse: "And you shall make two Cherubs of gold" (Shemot 25:18). It is written: "And He rode upon a Cherub, and did fly; yea, He soared on the wings of the wind" (Tehilim 18:11). AT FIRST, "and He rode upon a Cherub" REFERS TO THE FEMALE CHERUB, but later He was revealed on "the wings of the wind," THE SECRET REFERS TO THE MALE CHERUB. Until one is stimulated, it is not revealed within the other.
