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".

Heart of Solomon's Mystery Palace/Argaman

We are at the heart of the mystery of Solomon’s holy temple and the lineage of priestly initiation that involves the temple tradition. At the end of last weeks Torah portion of Mishpatim we have the elders of Israel seeing the Source of all that Is on the Sapphire crystal throne. Plain and pashat and simple, a crystal substance that is the foundation of the real Temple mysteries. In this weeks Torah parsha of terumah we have the details of the mishkan, the dwelling place for the Shekinah, the kingdom aspect of the Source in the physical world. Mentioned is the word Argaman, translated as purple. This word is a key to the deep secret. The Zohar on terumah tells us, “it is written, King Solomon made him a palanquin(apiryon) of the Trees of Lebanon. He made the pillars of silver, the bottom thereof of gold, the covering of it of purple/argaman, the midst thereof being paved with love by the daughters of Jerusalem”(SS III,9,10). This verse we interpret as follows, Apiryon symbolizes the Palace below which is formed in the likeness of the Palace above.”Zohar II127a(Sperling trans). The substance in pashat, the very literal physical interpretation here, is a crystalline substance that interfaces with the highest of the being realm, the hidden source of the flow of creative juice into our physical creation. Argaman as purple is a key word found throughout Torah, tanach and the oral Torah. The five letters as is well known stand for the initials of the celestial beings, Auriel, Raphael, Gabriel, Michael, Nuriel. This is very much connected with the Islamic tradition of Hadith that the being that sounds the final trumpet is Israphil., hinting at the exalted realm of the Seraphim. All of the terms of the miskhan in Torah are so often made into metaphors and varied symbolic interpretations, so often that most people do not believe this has any literal/pashat reality. Understand this as a literal specific part of an ancient sacred technology and then understand Torah, written and oral with a whole new Foundation. The sacred vessels/kedoshim of Solomon’s Temple were reworked into items that hid them from the general peoples as they were passed through various lineages of the priestly peoples. Read the story ,”The Buried Candelabrum” by the great Jewish author Stephan Zweig. Most stories relate that they were buried somewhere around the building site of the First beit haMikdash. The true tales and legends hint at their being reworked in order to truly “bury” them for protection and keep them available for the time of the geulah. Actually the seven generations from Abraham Avinu to Moshe Rabbeinu at Sinai represent the sevenfold descent of HaShem’s Shekinah into our world fully. Rashi tells us that the full manifestation of Shekinah was at the bringing of the first set of Sapphire stones. The Mishkan building was only needed to Tikkun/ rectify due to the incomplete ability of the holy peoples to receive the descent. What follows is Rashi’s and the Ramchal’s statements that the third holy beith Hamikdash will only need to be hooked up so to speak with the true gate that connects the upper to the lower Palace/Heckal. As people come to understand that the “future” temple/Palace is already here NOW, we will perceive the awesome flow of the upper waters into our world. The change has begun! We are moving into the time of the celebration of Purim, when the miracles of creation become visible as the contraries in the world meld into each other and speak to the achidus/unity of all that is. the secret of Esther, the morning star as sister royal of the Source as sovereign, rises in the twilight of dawn to herald a renewed Earth.
