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 Shawl of the night sky

This coming evening, the tenth night of this new turn of the wheel, we wear our prayer shawls and welcome the Sabbath of sabbaths. Our prayer shawls are woven together with every color, the entire spectrum of ohr v' chosehk, light and dark with which the stellar night sky scintillates. For some this tenth day contains all the tenth days of the 576 decades plus seven years that register as the wheels of years of change of our priestly walk. In that moment and moments that we embrace Chockmah consciousness, wisdom thought, this tenth day becomes all of them, the plural being "Yom Kippurim" and therefore also meaning- Yom K'Purim- the day that is as purim. A grand celebration of Freedom. Rabbi Gershon Winkler explains to us this week that it was on Yom Kippur that the ancient tribal Yovel, or Jubilee began. This is when all people and land and life returned to the the pristine beginning of the new creation. So the night sky is our great stellar prayer shawl. We celebrate the merging of time - the continuum of understanding/Binah and wisdom/Chockmah with the fifth continuum of kingdom/Malchuth and Crown/Keter. The ten directions of this created universe, three of space, one of time and one of being, are the cubic shaped sepher/book that we are inscribed within. The cube containing six faces plus three axes and the center point(6+3+1=10) equaling the full ten. This is the garden containing the Eyin gedi, the sacred fount of renewing water. It is a geometry embracing the universe in a way that allows us to orient to the source of geometry. Thus the turn of night and day becomes a kavanah of dark and light which is the original turning wheel, the - HaShanah - that blends the colors of time and being with the physical paradise of Earth, who holds all space in her womb. Tonight we welcome the royal marriage. We wrap ourselves with the prayer shawl of the Bride of the Laylah, the night of beauty. Avinu Malkeinu......
