Bereshit B: Chapter 37
"Let the earth bring forth grass"

The Zohar explains that the first Five Days of Creation do not deal with real time, but rather with spiritual phases. During these Five Days all the forces and entities of creation were maintained in a state of potential. The Sixth day of Creation refers to their physical manifestation, and the start of their physical existence.

Here, through the spiritual influences that emanate from each and every letter, the Zohar provides us with an opportunity to manifest and express the potential Light in our lives.
