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".

Michael and Samael/ the Eight Vestments of Tezaveh

This weeks Torah pasrsha of Tezaveh is studied diligently by all those throughout history who have sought the knowledge of the identities of the twelve precious stone in the Choshen, the breastplate of the Kohen Gadol, the high priest. Although the special stones as part of the ancient technology that interfaces "upper and lower “palaces is literal, the number of stones, twelve on the Choshen, may also lead astray the seeker. While people may search for the identity of all the stones there are actually a much fewer number that are really essential. The Book of Bereishet/Genesis tells us only two that are found in the rivers coming out of Gan Eden, the Shoham and the bedilcha/crystal. The sepher Yetzirah hints at three in it’s first chapter when the author tells us that the world was made with three Sepharim which hints at three kinds of sapphires, precious stones. We know it is talking of stones since the word chet-chet-koph/Chachak is mentioned. This means to engrave as in stone substance. As stated elsewhere the Zohar tells us that there are seven Hechalot/palaces in the upper worlds and the aggada/legends tell us that they are made of seven different kinds of gems. We now know that science separates the crystalline substances in the Earth’s crust into seven different lattice structures. Two obvious ones out of the seven come to mind when the two shoham stones each with six names on each are mentioned. The cubic and hexagonal crystal forms each with six sides but a different shape due to axis alignment. The word argaman/purple is mentioned several times in this parsha and then the 101 posukim/sentences hint at one of the angel seraphim that the letters in Argaman stand for. This is the popular guy Michael whose name has a gematria of 101.The Zohar tells us that he is the high priest in the heavenly temple and so this is a fitting remez/hint in this section that deals with the high priest's garments and functions here in the physical world. The coming up of the festival of Purim and this month of Adar remind us of another secret level behind this parsha, the eight vestments, the priesthood and the seraphim. Purim has us being aware of polarities and enigmas and so the one we find here would be the angel Michael’s great historical adversary, Samael. As the sar/prince of Rome he struggled with Jacob at night and out of this Israel and her story came about and so we are even here discussing this right now. The root of the “bad guys” name, sam,sameck-mem, means both blind and potion or poison. The potion implies healing as well as hurting. The bad guy as in the story of Purim is essential to the great miracle and the consequent healing. This holds true in the big story as well as in the little stories. Amalek, the great adversary as Torah tells us, is made of two roots amal and malak that implies laboring at cutting off or smiting, or disconnecting. The very name of the parsha Tezaveh means connecting to. Here is the great polarity again. The “evil” is as being cut off from the source and the “good” is being connected up. To be connected to the source we need to incorporate the polarities and yes even the “bad guy” angel Samael has had to be brought back in to the circle of seraphim and the priestly lineage. The Qumran scrolls even have a small work about Michael, angel of light quarreling with Belial/samael, angel of dark over who owns the body of Mose’s father, Amram. Here they are depicted as two great dragons coming face to face! Here is the essential polarity.Remember Jacob and Esau struggling as great dragons even in the womb of their mother Rebbeca. Compassionate infinite love engaged with eternal blind pure fire of desire.Everything in detail about setting up the priesthood and their vestments, all Eight, to bring the struggle into the drama in Earth. Haman/Amalek and Mordechai/Israel with the secret key being, as Esther, having the chayah soul of the world. Venus as Esther/aster, the planet that describes the pentagram of life in her Eight year cycle in sky. Achasverosh as sovereign of 127 provinces(years of Sarah’s life)has a name containing shoresh, the connected root of the great Tree. Happy Adar!
