Bereshit B: Chapter 55
"They heard...walking in the garden"

When Adam and Eve sinned, they disconnected themselves from The Creator. The secret to reestablishing our own connection can be found in the spiritual concepts of closeness and distance. Closeness refers to two entities that possess similarity of form and resemblance of nature. It is our difference of nature - our negative aspect of receiving in contrast to The Creator's positive aspect of sharing - that causes the separation. The rays of Light that resonate from the mystic shapes of the Hebrew letters awaken the sharing nature in our souls. We achieve greater similarity of form with The Creator, which in turn generates greater unity.
