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".

Leviathan and global purification

We have an explanation in the Zohar on the Torah portion Bo for this week, that goes into elucidating the place of the Leviathan and the beasts in the waters, called the Taninim/dragons. These inhabit the waters “below” from after the firmaments were separated. A relationship is explained here about the two inclinations, good and evil and the two kinds of angelic beings that guide the individual. In other words the expanse of the firmaments of the world is established by the expanse as well of the moral dimension in the world of soul/being. We call this expanse the fifth continuum or dimension, in these writings. These are enumerated and explained and named in the end of this section of the Zohar. We can learn to navigate these waters of a sanctified ten directions(6 of space, 2 of time and 2 of being) or we may experience the inverse of the sacred-the ten plagues. We are either in the "restricted" narrow space of ancient egypt/mitzrayim or in the promised land of milk and honey. The leviathan, the great “fish dargon” we are also told here, has a natural creative place in the story. We are reminded that this “fish” is kosher!. As humans we have the choice of pursuing desires for our own personal satisfaction and promotion, sometimes to the loss of others, or we can lift up these raw animal desires with the sparks of compassionate love. The “fish dragons” after the likes of the great leviathan we are told inhabit all the nine rivers in the subterranean worlds and sometime the tenth. These are nine of the ten directions a human may travel in the entire creation. The “fish dragons” are natural and an important part of the fauna of the created world. They are not “demonized”. They are kosher! Although this writer does not claim anything more than an average level of moral accomplishment, this blog is oriented to helping establish the global peace that has been promised for these times. Part of helping this process has been to explain the importance of many of the world’s religions in the light of the scheme of the Jewish mystery tradition. For us to keep the higher vision now we must understand some of the socio-political events that are happening now without demonizing any individual or group or nation. The apparently elusive world peace we seek appears to be very dependent on America, the political and economic Roman like giant of the globe. This country is dominated by the Christian calendar and values. According to the rabbinic sages this is a legacy of the biblical Edom=Rome. We have the eagle and the senate. Ancient rome became Christian. The mysteries of Christianity are connected to the Jewish mysteries and we must understand how this is for us to see why the unfolding of prophecy is happening the way it is. The new testament book of revelation was a Gnostic dream poem of a Jew who was given a power to write and help shape future events. He was told in chapter ten of this book, by the angel of the seven thunders, not to write what he saw in his vision. He was told to write what the messenger dictated to him. The great “war” and apocalypse foretold in the Christian writings is a reflection of the shattering of the shells held in the “waters” of the great fish beasts. They by their nature DESIRE world control but they have not achieved this. This is an integral part of their nature. Remember the Zohar tells us that only the male of the Great fish dragon was left alive. The female was destroyed early on in order to keep the physical creation in tact. The Talmudic writers promise us that we will dine on the flesh of the Kosher beast, the great fish. They tell us that the world will never be destroyed even though two of the great beasts are fighting right now. The third “flying” beast of the air element, the ziz bird, was already defeated by Moshe Rabbainu/Moses. We are told in Talmud that the beast of water and the beast of earth are fighting each other. They are defeating each other. The “apocalypse=great conflagration” of the dominant religion in America is only the defeat of these powerful subterranean desire beasts to control how we live our lives. The Sepher HaZohar here on this weeks parsha of Bo, gives us a lot of how each human has the choice for the good inclination or the evil inclination. We are told that the evil inclination can repent and become the good inclination.We are told that we have both the two sets of beings with us, the four great archangels by our side or the four angels of destruction called, anger, destruction, depravity and wrath(Zohar -Shemoth41b). We always have the choice. The test now is global. Violence does not solve our problems now. The Zohar tells us here that the world is said to be supported only by the merit of the breath of small school children who have not tasted sin(Zohar 39a).
We are still way down in Egypt land in the cyclic story within Torah. The Pharaoh man in this story, and the control he exercised is easily equated to the “deification” of the desire beasts, the crocodiles in the ancient pantheon of Mitzraim/Egypt. Not all the people in the real ancient Egypt deified the desire beasts with their raw and horrible power and devouring potential. They did acknowledge the beauty of the muses and the soul of the mother Earth whom they called the House of light - Hath - Hor(aleph-vav-resh=light in Hebrew). Her temple at Denderah in egypt, with it's awesome sky chart of the stars(see pictures) holds great keys to the mysteries related to the Hebrew seventytwo names, the shemhamphorash, as found in next weeks torah parsha, Beshalach. Our Sabbath Queen has been respected by many diverse peoples throughout the globe. She has many names.
The people everywhere have struggled with powers of the evil inclination-the yozer ra. They are depicted in various forms. Everywhere also the sacredness of life has been respected by some and given divine status. On the world media scene lately there has been the utter horror of revengeful killings, called either war or “state” sanctioned executions. We have small children mimicking the executions and losing their precious lives. The children are speaking to us with this. A human life is sacred even if the person has been devoured by the “crocodile” of the Egyptian Nile. Hate and revenge is part of the subterranean world of the primordial “beasts“. There will be a time very soon when our children will see a world where human life, all human life is held as such a sacred gift, that no person or peoples and their governments have the “right” to take that life in the name of justice. In a world that perceives the deeper levels of the divine relationship, only the Creator, HaShem, may take a person from the world. At the deepest level, the “beasts” have already been fully vanquished. What we are witnessing in the world is the death throes of these “powers” on a surface level. All is on schedule for the global awakening to the dawning of a radiance, a Zohar, of beauty and goodness. We are being born as a great people, a priestly people on a global scale now. We can hear the music of the great holy House. Shema Yisrael, We are all related.
