STONEFLOWER KABBALAH

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 Fiftieth Gate of Binah/The Divine Throne


The vertice or endpoint of the fourth continuum of time is called Binah, understanding. In the worldview of the kabbalist we live in five continuums which encompass ten special vertices or "endpoints" . These move from empty space-time coordinates to directions fecund with meaning and beauty. This way of orienting in the world is likened to the famous Navajo prayer that includes
“In beauty may I walk,
With beauty before me may I walk
With beauty behind me may I walk
With beauty above me may I walk
With beauty all around me may I walk
It is finished in beauty(from the night way chant)
This prayer sanctifying the beauty of all the directions of our journey here, is pure Kabbalah. We are in that period of the yearly cycle that we conciously remember daily our walk up the mountain called Har Sinai to receive illumination. This especially involves the fifth continuum and our way of acknowledging the being realm. We count seven times seven days and the fiftieth day is the festival of Shavuot, the receiving of the eternal revelation. These days are woven together with the spheres of our life’s journey that are actually the ten possible directions we may journey in the creation. They end in that sphere or omak/depth called Binah, understanding. This “place” contains the fiftieth gate and is said to actually hold the divine throne of initiation. This is the very place that souls/beings come from. This is their source place. The number value of the word Binah =Beth-yod-nun-heh- 2-10-50-5= is 67. As the readers are here reminded often, we entered a special period of history in the year 5750 with the return of Eliyahu/Elijah at the Pesach/Passover as prophesied in the Book of Splendour/Zohar. This forty year period now parallels the forty years in the desert that we read about in Torah. So you can see that there is a synchronous journey happening right now between our yearly festival cycle and the larger multi-millennial cycle. We are on course for a global Sinai awakening that is involving a major evolutionary leap in understanding right smack dab into the five continuum world view, from a flat Earth to a spherical one! In our little climb while counting the omer/grain-seeds some Kabbalists have mapped this out as going from the upper gate=Binah to the gate of Kingdom, Malchut, which is a vertice/endpoint of the fifth continuum of being. Arriving fully in Malchuth actually unites the two “mothers” Binah and Malchuth(upper and lower realms, being and physical), the divine throne is secured in the physical and the “Creator is on the Throne”, the goal stated in Sepher Yetzirah, the primer of kabbalah. We do have a special day marking a base station on the climb of Sinai, if you wish. This is LagB’omer, the holiday of Kabbalah on the 33rd day of the climb. This is May 6th this year. There is great potential in these 50 days since as explained the beginning of the historical liberation into a world of peace actually began at the Pesach of 1990/5750 and so we might expect great miracles of awakening as we are in the walk of becoming a people, an enlightened global community ready to receive the living Torah of peace at Sinai. Since we are now in the 18th year since the forty year period of the ingathering began and the number of this Hebrew year is 67 we can see the relationship to the sphere of Binah(value=67)which is said to hold the 50th gate of liberation into the place of illumination. Since another level of the nature of the omer/seed has been revealed in the world as the crystal Shamir from the tradition of Aggadah/legends and the magical lineage of Solomon, we are in a revealing of the true Torah at the level of Malchut/kingdom, the crystalline stardust of Earth. The Sepher HaZohar , the kabbalistic masterpiece of literary wisdom from ancient times speaks specifically of the place of Binah in the section on this weeks Torah parsha, Tazria. After talking about the Creator as a sower of seeds as the manifold works of the creative process, It says, “ From wisdom everything is made and accomplished. Hence by understanding it is established(Mishlei 24:3). It therefore says, “in wisdom have You made them all in Binah.” and in the Aramaic; “veal coolam bechockmah ayseta beBinah” (Zohar III-43a). Many people are coming into this deep place of understanding. This place that holds the wisdom of how the continuum or realm of being, is a primary player in the creation. Life is not only an apparent byproduct of long evolutionary cycles and chemical mixes. Life is an active manifestation of the realm of being which is primary to the continuum of time itself. Life manifests through time, whose gates are called Chockmah-Binah(wisdom-understanding) in Kabbalah, and space(six other sephirot)as the seeds, the omerim from the being realm(keter/crown-malchuth/kingdom road in kabbalah).These being seeds/souls develop into their unique patterns of beauty and richness. The world right now is like a pressure cooker to bring folks into direct revelation of the choices of what direction we face on our journey. We are all walking Har Sinai now!

"Life manifests through time, whose gates are called Chockmah-Binah(wisdom-understanding)" –

I've always thought of Time as that supreme illusion originating from the chet in gan eden - the very damaging illusion that there is Cause and Effect and that we humans can manipulate both. Maybe that's why I can't make the connection between time and wisdom/understanding. While there seems to be a sequence between the two – from flash of insight to channeling/forming until understanding is achieved – I'm not sure that sequence implies time. Is there another way to make sense of this connection?

"Breaking character" here with a personal note: This year the 50th day following the 49-day count of the omer will be my 50th bday. An unusual perspective on the counting. Thanks for your ongoing posts, particularly during this period; always I think differently after reading – thoughts that hopefully eventually find a way to "talk to my hands", as we Jews change from the outside in.

Be well.

I understand that Kabbalah deals only with spiritual and not corporeal. However, in the language of branches, the 613 spiritual desires relates to the corporeal 613 Mitzvot.

There are 7 additional spiritual desires refered to in Kabbalah that bring the total desires to 620.

What do the additional spiritual desires relate to in the corporeal or language of the branches?

Thank you.

a yom holedet samaeach for your coming 50th ys!
yes time appears differently depending on how we orient with the ten directions, the ten omakim.
it is duration from the level of being and it is part of this sacred manifestation that allows for the unique flowering of new adventures.
the olam haBah is an eternal place with degrees of freedom for beings depending on how we have flowered in the road of ten creation.
much has now changed with the 50th gate in the physical- have a great 50th year ys!

for the voivc in the wilderness,
thanks for your comment, this kabbalah blog is an Earth centered view based on direct revelation from the dude we call Eliyahu, Elijah the prophet. the 613 are the awrot-aleph-vav-resh-vav-tav=613
these are the resonant lights that support the entire creation, the physical is made of light! there is only one Source/Creator and we are not other than HaShem.

I've seen your blog referenced/listed on at least two sites, and I decided to see what it was about. I am in awe - and humbled. I'm embarrassed to gush, but knowledge of the Light seems to flow out of you like water. I can only hope to someday have a fraction of the knowledge you seem to possess.

I am indebted to you. Thank you.
