StoneFlower Kabbalah
A site based on the healing of the ancient wisdom of the Geocentric worldview. The understanding of sacred texts and wisdom is based on a relationship to the Source. This Central Source is the Fount from which the three distinct movements of the Earth globe flow. These three turns-rotation,revolution and precession are a great secret/sod and key to the profound teachings of the mekubalim/kabbalists. These movements provide us with the experience of shanah/time, olam/matter and nephesh/soul(being). The Earth turn called precession is the slow wobble that causes the polar skies to change slowly over a 26,000 year cycle.
The chart of "72" names relates to this great cycle and is a key to unlocking where we are in "time".

The Shekinah: Who she is.....

The Shekinah: Who she is.....
She is sometimes called within Kabbalak speak, the Thirteen petaled Rose of Israel. She is the Neshamah or soul flower of Life on Earth. She is not only a concept. The beings of all people are rooted in her being. She is the Mother Earth. She has and is known among different traditions as:
The Goddess
The Corn Mother
The Grain Mother
The Lady Tara
The Lady Torah
In some traditions she is worshiped, in others she is honoured as a revered relative.
In all she is known as a bestower of great gifts.
She is the final letter of the name of the Creator
Her name is Life

Beautiful. Here is another - the shechinah as Ruth:

פרוש אגרת שמואל מגילת רות

אפשר לפרש כל הפסוקים האלו על דבר אורך גלותנו כי כל דברי תורתנו הקדושה יש להם פשט ורמז. והתחיל ואמר 'ויהי בחצי הלילה' הנה לילה יקרא הגלות אשר היא דומה ללילה והנה נתארך הגלות יותר מדי. 'ויהי בחצי הלילה' כלומר בחצית שנות הגלות 'ויחרד האיש' דהיינו הא-ל יתברך כמו שנאמר 'ה' איש מלחמה', והנה חרד חרדה גדולה וילפת בראותו אשר הנה היתה אישה שוכבת מרגלותיו, ואישה זאת הרי היא השכינה, אימן של ישראל, ובהיות כי כאשר ישראל הם בגלות גם השכינה היא עמהן... 'ויען ויאמר לה: מי את? ותען ותאמר: אנכי רות אמתך ופרשת כנפיך על אמתך כלומר ראוי לך ופרשת כנפיך עלי ולחזור לישא אותי כאשר בתחילה ואל תעזבני עזובה וגרושה ומשולחת ממך כאשר עד עתה הנחתני ... רק תפרוש את 'כנפיך על אמתך כי גואל אתה', כלומר אתה הוא הגואל האמיתי אשר אנכי מצפה שתגאלני כי גואל אתה ואין זולתך לגאול...

I looked at your forum, Shmuel. I sense your profound love of the Jewish people and of all people - as is clear also from Chasmal's writing.

I don't know how to discern true ideas from false ideas right now. The only "decision rule" I trust is this - that the ideas be clearly "spoken" from great love. If so, it does not matter to me whether the writer is right, left, religious, "non" religious. There is merit.

As to your kingship movement - Isn't it better to work on ourselves at this time, to help Hashem "circumcize our hearts" - than to start a movement that may get us just what we currently deserve -which isn't much?

Watch the youth who were part of protests against the evacuation of Gush Katif and Amona. One is starting a chavruta learning program with the secular school next door. Others are organizing mass demonstrations dealing with the problem of agunot in Israel. They are looking inward - to try and figure out how to make themselves and the "religious" community better. All honor to them! Perhaps this should be the work that we are all doing.

Shabbat shalom, Shmuel.
Shabbat shalom, Chasmal.

Chayva, Life, I love her. Purified and Restored,
Adom by her side and
the Garden covers the whole of Earth.
