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".

Zahav Tahor/Pure Gold

Heaven is an eternal ongoing miracle. Revealing this awesome place of awakening adventure within the depth of physical matter is the work of the holy peoples and the building of the mishkan/sanctuary. Many people are very fascinated with the golden calf. How could a piece of metal come alive? But when discussing the mishkan and the appearance of HaShem to Israel, many explain this only as a “metaphor”. Interpretation of the four levels of the Hebrew Torah is where the wisdom can be found. The golden calf is the true metaphor for us today, since this symbol for an imbalanced understanding of the source is present this very day in the world. We know from the study of the faces of the Chayoth that both the calf face and the metal gold may symbolize the rigorous aspect of divine justice. Many of the fundamentalist groups focus on this aspect and quality and place this on the panai/Face of the Source. The source of Love in the world is beyond any aspect and therefore the approach to the Source we are told is facilitated by being careful not to put any of the Elohim/Powers on the Panai/Face of haShem. This is from the esrai devarim, the Ten suggestions sometimes called the Decalogue.
The reading of the book of Shemot/Exodus ended with details about the Mishkan, the place for the Creator to dwell in this world. The details are for some holding the important details of building a religious discipline that brings one closer to HaShem. For the students of the temple tradition which is built on experiential initiation, in the details are the simpler instructions for the sacred technology that involves the Zahav Tahor, the pure gold mentioned many times. Legend has it that the Holy Rashi’s last word was Tahor, pure. It is one iota of this pure gold that the alchemists said could change huge amounts of base metal to real gold. The key to this kind of gold is found both in the wheel of the metals given to us in Zohar/terumah and pictured in the old text,Eshel Abraham as well as in the written Torah. The two people who build the mishkan hold the knowledge. One is Bezalel from the tribe of Judah and the other is Oholiab from the tribe of Dan. The lion and the snake. Each has an animal as well as a metal associated with it and herein lies the wisdom that leads to the Zhav tahor. The real Kabbalah is not what anyone can tell you. This is from the Self discovery. The soul as the word nefesh has the gematria value of 430. This is also the value of the word shekel=430. True discovery comes from this “place” of being. Ha-Mishkan(415) + Yah(15) = 430. Happy Adar Sheini new moon!
