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 ark/holy of holies and the eben shetiyah

The theme of the Holy Song of Songs is the teomim. We are this week at the Rosh Chodesh/new moon of the sign of the Gemini/Twins and approaching the revelation-eternal and profound of Har Sinai, the holy mountain. The mountain in aboriginal tradition is the house of eternity. The song of songs sings from the holy of holies, the resting place for the ark which tradition tells us took up no space in the cubic chamber. The dimensions of the ark however in cubits are 1 and a half high and 1 and a half deep and 2 and a half in length. So we have the two very important “places” a cube, the holy of holies and an elongated hexagon, the holy ark. The eben shetiyah, the foundation stone of the world was said to be there also. The words eben shetiyah equals in gematria 768, and we are here in the year 768 of the sixth Hebrew millennium. Like in the song we have three protagonists so to speak, three “spaces” like the three strangers who visited our father Abraham and our mother Sarah. Jewish tradition tells us that the ark was hidden in a cave on Har Sinai until the time of the geulah. Islamic tradition tells us that it was kept at the bottom of lake Tiberias to be revealed at the ketz. Earth and water. When the ark was brought into the first temple it is said that the golden trees became moist and made fruit. We are here dealing with the very basic elements that the world is made of. Of course this is all about mysteries that are secret in order to maintain the very existence of the creation. the words of Sefer Shemot on the breastplate of aaron hold the key to the eben shetiyah and the nature of the three strangers who are the song.Below is a section from the Jewish encyclopedia about the ark and the holy of holies, the theme of the Song of Songs, Shir Hashirim. A wonderful renewed Moon of the Teomim for all!
—In Rabbinical Literature:
The Ark, by reason of its prominence in the Bible, forms an important subject of discussion by the Rabbis, a great many sayings relating to it being found throughout the Talmud and the Midrashim. They discuss the dimensions, position, material, contents, miraculous powers, final disposition, and various incidents directly or indirectly connected with the Ark. Such discussions at times embody popular legends, and are also of interest as reflecting the poetical spirit which animated many of the rabbis.
Thus it is related (B. B. 99a) that the available space in the Holy of Holies was not in the least diminished by the Ark and the cherubim—that is to say, that through the working of a miracle the Ark and the cherubim transcended the limitations of space. With regard to the position of the Ark in the Holy of Holies, there is the following picturesque saying in TanḦuma, Ḳedoshim, x.:
"Palestine is the center of the world, Jerusalem the center of Palestine, the Temple the center of Jerusalem, the Holy of Holies the center of the Temple, the Ark the center of the Holy of Holies; and in front of the Ark was a stone called , the foundation stone of the world."
