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 weaving of blue and purple, angels/humans

This week we have the first Sabbath in these 72 days from Tammuz 17 which begins the traditional 3 weeks of mourning, and until Rosh HaShanah which gathers all of the holy peoples together from the long march of history to hear the sound of the Shofar/ram’s horn. These 70 days in between are the number of the nations of the world hearing and feeling the transformative wheel that is the temple of initiation here in Earth/Adamah. Zohar has only a very small commentary on the Torah parsha Mattot. It speaks of the specialness of the chesed, the flowing lovingkindness, the divine fount that is the all giving love of HaShem. This word Chesed also has the gematria of 72, underlying the profundity of these 72 days from summer to fall which involves destruction and tragedy and the return that is the poignant feel of Jewish history and the true nature of the work of all the traditions that support the wisdom of making Earth a sacred temple for all peoples. On the very special wheel of the metals as given in Zohar terumah and pictured in Sefer Eshel Abraham, we are moving from the silver in the south which holds the water(chesed) and are moving towards the Barzel/Iron in the west which holds the great secret=raz, the word raz/secret hidden inside the word for iron, barzel. The four metals on the wheel and their relationship to the four elements are gates to the most profound level of rejoining the Tree of Knowledge to the Etz Chaiim, the Tree of Life. The four traditional worlds in kabbalah are built of the four metals and have a special relationship to their associated elements and qualities. The temple vessels are built with the metals and crystals(colors) so as to make possible the flow of the Chesed(lovingkindness=silver) throughout the olamim/worlds so all will drink of the river from Eden that is worth as we quoted from Zohar in a recent post-1000, as in the thousand pieces of silver spoken of in the Song of Songs. The silver is related to the world of Beriah, the throne which is made of sacred crystal. Crystal holds the quality of the elemental water, it’s clearness, sparkle and translucency. The river and it’s four streams from Eden, the 12 stones being created in these rivers(from Torah/Bereishit/Genesis) and the four metallic roots of the tree of Knowledge are all keys to the building of the mishkan and her sacred vessels. The temple mysteries that involve the literal weaving of metals, elements and colors helps bring an end to all injustice and subjugation of peoples as reflected in the four metallic parts of the image(gold,silver,copper and iron) in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in Sefer Daniel. These 70 days from now to the head of the wheel/Shanah/Rosh haShanah, in the fall involve the balance of judgment and mercy that is the lesson of the historical drama which brings freedom for all the 70 nations finding the living Source. From zohar on mattot, “ we learned that Rabbi Yehuda said the world is maintained by two colors only, that come from the aspect of the wise-hearted((chochmat lev) woman. Hence, it says, “and all the women that were wise-hearted did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, both of blue(techeleth), and of purple(argaman). What did they bring? Blue and purple, which are colors contained within colors.” Zohar III,259b(trans after Ashlag). The sacred value of vows and words and the need to vanquish the imbalance that jeopardizes the delicate unfolding of justice in the world are themes in this weeks quite difficult torah section. The author of the zohar tells us this is a delicate weaving by the women who hold the fabric of community together and allow the chesed to flow and make the world a beautiful place. In the haftorah for the parsha mattot, from Jeremiah 1-18, “ I have set you today as a fortified city and as an iron(barzel) pillar and as copper(nachoshet)walls over the entire land”. These are the metals that the world of yetzirah(angels) is made of/copper; and the world of assiah(physical planets) and animal world is built on iron/blood. The angel chiefs/sarim of the nations are being unified in the human world. Here we have a great synchronicity of prophecy between Hebrew and Tibetan/Asian sacred vision. The ancient Tibetans saw the sovereignty of humans bringing the powers associated with the divine through the ladder of the four metals(which the four continents of Asian Mt.Meru is made of), ending with the bringing into humanity the fullness of Rudra chakrin, the keeper of the wheel of iron by which a global peace is flowering for us. Sounds familiar, Thanks Jeremiah! Good shabbos to all!
