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".

Light is the Raz/The Secret

The Zohar tells us for this coming week in the part “The Faithful Shepherd” within the section on Zav, that the Raz=resh-zayin(207value) which is the word for secret, is the awr=aleph-vav-resh(207value),which means light. This weeks Torah portion is all about the altar and the holy of holies in the temple mysteries. So this is all about working with this world of densified light=matter, in relation to the upper world of endless light. Einstein knew this relationship intuitively and wrote it into an equation. The Zohar is a book whose name which means splendor itself implies the splendorous light. This is the light ain-soph-awr- the infinite light without end - a negative(ain means no-thing) phrase which is the Hebrew wisdom tradition’s form of the Zero. This same zero was held in great esteem by the ancient Maya Indians of the Americas. In fact the highest level of initiation in the American wisdom lineages was and is called the “Zero chief“. The American indigenous lineages of initiation have used the circle=zero shaped medicine wheels to reflect the stages of the temple initiations. These wheels are found in the Zohar as well and delineated in the book Eshel Abraham, an antique commentary on Zohar. The wheel or circle is a big Zero and has always represented the divine in the physical. Remember the letters of the Hebrew alphabet - 22- divided by the sacred -7-number of the Sabbath and her cycle gives us the closest number approximation of Pi =22/7 the intrinsic irrational relationship of the circle; circumference and diameter. The Sabbath as the diameter that bridges the circle of all possibilities(the 22 Hebrew letters)is the weekly prayer form that has made our global work successful. The throne of initiation had to come fully into the physical with at least three great religious prayer traditions honoring the seven day week. The secret is light. We are making this light -without end- fully conscious and fecund with our daily walk on Earth. The secret- Raz- is also at the heart of the word for iron-Barzel- whose letters as we have mentioned before represent the initials for the four mothers of Israel(Bilhah-Rachel-Zilpah-Leah) - the priestly lineages that encompass the entire Earth. Each of these women are as the wings of the two Kerubim - four wings that support the throne from which souls are engendered in the fifth continuum. This weeks Zohar parsha also reminds us of the relation between the kerub called Mettatron and the name Shaddai - both names having the value 314. The kabbalists have always had the precise era of the great redemption encoded here in these words and numbers. The active work in the world of assiyah(doing) has been of the kerub called Sandalphon who is said to weave the prayers together in this world for the upper world.. This has been the occupation of Elijah Ha Navi-Elijah. The other work is that of the Kerub Mettatron who is discussed extensively in the Hechalot(palace)literature. He has seventy names himself and so the great ones that have appeared among the men and women of the various nations have had his help. Remember at the end of the written Torah it tells us that Moshe rabbeinu-Moses- was the greatest prophet to have arisen among the people of Yisrael. It does not mention all of the worlds' peoples. Shaddai as Mettatron has been fully involved with many of the seventy nations of the world. This has been the work of uniting the various lineages. The secret of the times of completion of the works of this awr-light- among the nations is that the sacred name Shaddai is related to the sephirah - yesod(foundation)-also called zaddik which is given to the sixth millenium-5000-5999 of the Jewish calendar(each of the seven lower sephirot equal one millennium). Shaddai=Shin-daleth-yod=314 which occurs in ONLY two dates in the Hebrew rendering of the dates in this whole fifth millennium. These are 5314 and 5714. The first date involved the life of the Holy Lion- the great kabbalist the Ari. The second date began the true beginning of the epoch of this final geulah-redemption that we are living NOW. This date has been hidden on every mezuzah of every house, and the shearim-gates, of the Jews for millennium. And here we are. The famous book Sepher Raziel- tells us that the secret of the mezuzah is the hidden Barzel-Iron. This involves the completion of the unification of all the seventy lineages(Shema=shem-ayin-from previous post) and the face to face meeting of the Kerubim here in our Earth. Blessings for the great Sabbath. We have achieved all the dates and we are now at the 18th holiday of redemption since the work of the Kerubim took a novel turn in the world in 5750. 18 = Chai and the kerubim are connected to the Chayoth, the living creatures. The Zohar tells us emphatically for the parsha Zav that we have entered a new epoch that does not require the Temple sacrifices to unite the upper and lower worlds. This has been accomplished: “How many lights were created before the world was created? He answered: Seven(sephirot): namely, the light of the Torah, the light of Gehenna, the light of the garden of Eden, the light of the Throne of Glory, the light of the Temple, the light of repentance, the light of the Messiah. Similiarly seven lights were attached to Aaron, and he lit the lower lamps from the higher. Rabbi Eleazar quoted the verse: “ All was from the dust”(Eccles)”We have learnt he said that everything is from the dust, even the orb of the sun. But from what dust? From that which is under the Throne of Glory. In the Book of Rab Yeba the Elder it says that paths went forth in all directions and then met again to give light, like the dust that is thrown in all directions and yet returns again to dust. The dust was that of the Sanctuary, which again was from the supernal dust.”(Zohar III34b) After this incredible explanation of how light is matter in various forms the Zohar continues to tell us, on this commentary on parsha Zav which is about the various sacrifices on the altar of the ancient Temple,” He who studies the Torah needs neither peace offerings nor burnt offerings, since the Torah is superior to all and the bond of faith: wherefore it is written, “Her ways are ways of pleasantness and all her paths are peace"(Prov.III,17)"(Zohar III35a). The Zohar on the parsha Zav then finishes by telling us of the smell of the fresh myrtle branches that keep our upper soul with us after the Sabbath day moves into the week. We have it all here in the simple yet profound forms of nature all about us. Yes, the act of smelling a fragrance of a tree may unite the upper and lower worlds now. This is the month of miracles!
