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 Sepher/Book of Adam

The story of the passing of the Book of Adam from the Rabbi Adam Baal Shem to the Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov defines the tradition and lineage of Initiation that is behind the entire Temple of Creation that is our world. This book by legend is made of Sapphires encased in gold and we can follow it's reappearance throughout history as it takes various forms but still holds the same magical technology that is found in the depth of the various legends regarding the temple of initiation. The Hebrew word for Book, Sepher also with different vowel points means Sapphire and also Cipher. This tells us that the mystery of our tradition is directly involved with the level of Stone/mineral. The return of this book into the lineage of Israel is in the heart of true prophecy. As discussed in previous articles the word Adam of the Book of Adam has various levels of meaning from the name Human, male and female to the "Earth Man" from Adamah meaning Earthly blood, to the red one and the Odem stone, the Ruby in the breastplate of Aaron. With the reappearance of the Sepher Adam we have many new streams of wisdom blessing the Earth. In the ancient hermetic traditions this "Book" is called "The Cup" and the writings of Hermes the initiator relate the cup to a heralding star and the Initiator himself who we call Eliyahu in Hebrew. The prophecies from Qumran, and the Tanach tell us that the work and people involving this return of the Holy Book and Star will be rejected and ignored. It involves the stirring of the deepest and most difficult of challenges to each and every human on the road to be becoming and realizing their sacred humanity. This stirring is mirrored in the fear and awe of the elements as well as the human tragedy of senseless violence. The parsha for this week opens with "When you will go out to battle with your enemies, and haShem will deliver them....." Indeed the violence and turbulence in the world is a reflection of the inner enemies of greed, hate, envy, hubris...... These are the true enemies. We do not need to make the people outside of us dance with the mask of our inner enemies. This is another level of the return of the true holy Sepher Adam to our physical world. The Shechinah, the presence of HaShem in the Earth is not a concept. She is a created being and this understanding is the revolution now. The earth, the Planet, has a Soul! She holds the very book of life that is talked about so much as we approach the Jewish New Year the Rosh/head of Shanah/great change and transformation, the circle of transformation we call the year. Within the Shanah, the circle of change is the word Shen, meaning Ivory. The holiest of the writings, the Song of Songs tells us that this Ivory is the body of the throne of Solomon whose wisdom involves the Sepher Adam which is the key to wisdom and Shlomo - He that is Peace. Within this vast turbulent circle of change is the key to the very substance that peace rests upon.
The sound of the final Shofar permeates the entire Creation.

Dear Chasmal,

The image of making others dance with the mask of our inner enemies is compelling, if distrubing, but perhaps misses the real root of our "inner enemy" - which, I would argue, is fear. Fear of dissolution in more metaphorical terms (of identity and ego on an personal, community, national level) and fear of death in absolute terms.

The only solution for this root is expanded awareness - an awareness that a merging of my consciousness with yours does not diminish me; and a solid awareness that my death does not destroy me.

Missing this root is a concern if those, who perhaps like yourself, have knowledge of secret wisdom traditions and are working to open channels to such expanded awareness, but miss the real target.

Understanding fear as at least a central root opens the heart to feel compassion for those of us who, in the face of cosmic uncertainty, opt for greed, hate, hubris and envy. Instinct suggests that from this place begins the healing.

Thank you for your ongoing efforts to teach.

Shabbat Shalom,

p.s. can you feel the quiet over jerusalem skies tonight?

You are very correct Jerusalem seeker! This "fear" you speak of is the first emotion appearing in the Torah- directly mentioned, when Adam becomes afraid due to the awakening from the tree of knowledge. Thanks for your fine perspective and helping elucidate the path to healing and peace.
