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".

Yom Echad/ Day One and the Birchat HaChamah

This weeks Torah parsha Terumah is all about the portable sanctuary known as the Mishkan. It encapsulates the importance of the secret sacred technology that allows the influx of the divine waters into the Earth olam/world. The Zohar goes into a complex and involved explanation of the work of the holy peoples and the grand design to bring the great Peace who is the Divine, into intimate relationship with our world. We are not a people who wait for a reward in the shamayim/heavens. Our life work and purpose is to lift our physical world into an awesome enbrace with the living waters of the heavens. The Mishkan, the tabernacle where the divine presence dwells is all about this purpose. It is movable and in a sense therefore it can not be destroyed like the first two Holy Temples. Where the mishkan functions the eternal Beith HaMikdash interfaces with the physical world It is a theme of these writings that this is already taking place now. In the Zohar commentary on terumah we have an explanation of the Shema and it’s deeper meaning. “ The word Shema consists of Shem(name) and ayin(seventy), indicating the combination of this name and the other seventy from whence it derives blessing. At the recitation of the Shema, therefore, one must concentrate on the divine names. For these seventy names constitute the mystery of the supernal Chariot from whence that Name receives blessing and in which it is contained. Then comes the word Yisrael, referring, as we have learnt, to “Ancient Israel”(Tifereth), so that this emanation may also be included. So “Hear, O Israel”, signifies union of the Spouse and her Husband(ie Malkuth with Tifereth), so that all is in all, and all is one.”Zohar II 160b(trans. After Sperling). The celebration of the Sabbath is the “place” where the “Spouse” dwells and this union of the seventh day with what is actually the third day is an essential part of the work. We count the seven days down from Chesed(day one=sunday) to geburah(day two-Monday) to Tifereth(day three=Tuesday)netzach(day four=Wednesday)to Hod(day five=Thursday) to Yesod(day six=Friday)and then the Sabbath day. Each day/depth actually has ten names within and hence 7X10=70 names mentioned in Zohar. All these are as seeds in the Omak/depth of Binah who is the upper mother/Sarah. Here is the key to make “so that all is in all, and all is one”. This is the unification of the Name here on earth. Earlier in the text of Zohar Terumah is a key to all this about the personages connected to unifying the name “here below”. The Zohar often does this, she has keys and locks hidden in different parts of the texts. So we have “ a song of degrees for the sake of David, the great king who always praises the Great King. But when Solomon came, he sang a song which is high above even that of David, a song which is the very same as that sung by the great ones of the realms above, the PILLARS OF THE UNIVERSE, in honour of the supernal one who is the lord of peace and harmony.” ZoharII 144b(trans. After Sperling) Please notice the words we have capitalized here. The mishkan and the work that the Rashbi teaches about here involves the very unification of the original Yom v’ Laylah; the day and night that were separated with the firmaments on “Yom Sheni”/Day Two(monday). This “repair” of the light of the moon is also a major theme in Zohar especially this section on Terumah. The Song of Solomon holds the secrets of how to rebuild the tabernacle with the precious substances and allow blessing to flow into the Earth. Yom Echad = Day One is the day which holds the unification of the Names. This involves Abraham Avinu who is as the sun in our tradition. His name originally is Av-Ram, the possessor of Ram, which connects him with the most ancient religion of the priests of Ram, a form of Vishnu(divine beingness) in the ancient Sanskrit. The Zohar also gives us hints to the three “sides” of the Shema in “YHVH(1) -Elokeinu(2) -YHVH(3)” is Echad=one. “The mystery contained in the words, “The Lord our God, the Lord”, the mystery of the unity in three aspects(lit. in three sides), has often been referred to by the Holy Lamp(Rashbi), and we are not permitted to enlarge upon what he has said.“ZoharII160b(trans. After Sperling) Secrets of these three “sides” are found in the three aspects of the divine from the Sanskrit of which Abram’s name gives us a connection. Abraham’s day is Day One of the Omak/depth of Chesed. He is the embodiment of Lovingkindness=Chesed. Gematria of Day One/Yom Echad = 69 which is the very number of our year samech(60) teth(9) this very year when we pronounce the birchat HaChamah, the rare blessing of the sun on the day before the full moon of Nissan. The moon of Adar is now the moon of happiness that we can feel now on our faces. She is coming into her completeness in beauty. This blessing of the original ohr/light of the sun is already flooding our world.

Chodesh Adar, the green comet becomes "visible"

This weeks Torah parsha Mishpatim begins with the slave that does not wish to be set free and remains in bondage. It ends with the 70 elders of Israel, a remez/hint to all the 70 nations of the world/olam actually seeing haShem , “They saw the Elohai Yisrael, and under His feet was the likeness of sapphire brickwork, and it was like the essence of heaven in purity…….they gazed at HaElohim, yet they ate and drank.” Shemot24:11. This is an incredible posuk which leads into the receiving of the luchoth haeben/tablets of stone on the mountain. The parsha begins with slavery and then speaks about many ordinances, commandments dealing with various day to day challenges. These end with the famous injunction to not seethe a kid in it’s mothers milk from which the laws of dietary concerns come. Rabbi Gershon Winkler reminds us in his teachings that this involves the need to allow different essences to remain simply what they are. The milk is the essence of the mother and the flesh of the kid is it’s bodily essence. Let them be what they are in their unique nature, as we let each other be our unique human selves. The Zohar relates much of this parsha to the gilgalim, the reincarnation or transmigration of souls in order to attain a deeper connection to the divine.This really is all about unique essence. The quality of the omakim, the depths of the journey we each pursue in our life path. “Many are the worlds through which they (souls)revolve, and each revolution is wondrous in many hidden ways, but men neither know nor perceive these things! Nor do they know how the souls roll about “like a stone inside a sling”. Now as we have begun to disclose these mysteries, it is opportune to reveal that all souls(neshamah) emanate from a high and mighty Tree, from that “River which goes out of Eden”(Gen.II:10), and all spirits(ruach)from another, smaller Tree - the souls from above and spirits from below- and they unite after the fashion of male and female. And when they unite they shine with a celestial light….”Zohar II99b(trans after Sperling). This Sabbath is the blessing for the new month of Rosh Chodesh Adar whose full moon is the festival of Purim when the light of the soul world shined in the exile of Persia without the standing Holy temple. The people merited the joyous light by their own deeds and living of Torah. The value in gematria of Esther HaMalka/the queen is the same=761=of the last three words of Chumash/Torah- “Leaynai Kol Yisrael”/ before the eyes of all of Yisrael. The Queen is the big Chayah as the Malchut, the Divine Presence and the Zohar tells us at the end of mishpatim; “They saw the Elohai of Yisrael”, that is to say, the Shechinah manifestated Herself to them”Zohar II 126a(trans after Sperling). This parsha moves from slavery through the ordinances and the transmigrations to the freedom of beholding the Divine Presence by connecting to the chayah/life soul of humanity who is before all the eyes of the holy peoples. We are always moving from dinim/judgments and “ordinances” to Chesed, the lovingkindness that is the river who flows from the Tree. Happy new moon of the month of happiness!

sword of peace/Kerubim comet Lulin and Shadayim

This weeks Torah parsha of Yisro tells us to “Zachor et hayom haShabbat Lekadsho” from Shemot 20:8 as written on the Luchoth Habanim/the tablets of the ten devarim/sayings. This is different from the later version of the Ten Sayings where we have the “shomar”/guarding of the Shabbat. We are always to Zachor/remember the Sabbath, every day and every night, and the Ramban tells us about this in his commentaries. We live in days of awesome miracles. Do we remember miracles? If the sacredness of our times were only slightly more experienced we would even more quickly move into the next phase of this 40 year ingathering of exiles; “kibbutz goliot” which began in 5750 as predicted in Sepher HaZohar. We are told in Shemot:19:16 that there was “Barak-im”/lightning on the mountain and we here it again loudly in our times. The mountain of Sinai is trembling now folks. A New kochav/comet is making close passage to our Earth during these 42 days of Shovavim(first 6 parshot/weeks of Sepher Shemot) and as we move into Rosh Chodesh Adar it will complete a special 45 day period in its long millennial orbit around the sun( from perihelion to perigee=45 days). As previously mentioned this same segment of the orbital period of another famous kochav that made a bright sword like appearance in 66CE which some say presaged the destruction of the Beith HaMikdash and the beginning of exile of Edom/Rome., has profound implications. Both Comet Halley(called in Talmud the "70 year star") and the new comet with the Hebrew root name leyl/night-Comet Lulin are very rare in that they both orbit the sun in the opposite direction of the planets. These comets seem to be directly related to the cryptic keitz count of days at the end of Sepher Daniel. 1290 days equals the added number of days in the 26(26=YHVH) orbital periods of Comet Halley since 66CE(26X49.6=1290),of this special period from perihelion(rounding the sun) to perigee(close passage to Earth) that with this new Comet Lulin equals precisely 45 days. And so the starry night sky is speaking to us now as we dance in the Hebrew year 5769 which brings us to an unusual Torah verse in the Song Of Moses in Devarim-the 5769th verse of Torah. This contains a rare word translated as demons-shedim, but which also can be read as Shadayim which we are told in commentaries on The Shir HaShirim/Song of Songs is a remez/hint to the Shnei Luchoth as twin breasts holding the revelation of Sinai. This word in the 5769th Torah verse not only hints at the twin tablets as breasts of the Shechinah being revealed anew in this year 5769, but as the twin Kerubim whose fiery swords guard the way to gan eden. The kochav/comet in the sky right now is a manifestation of the revolving fiery sword that brings the truth of the shalom shalem/great complete Peace to our temple Earth. Good Shabbos and Zachor!

TuB'Shevat/Comet Lulin/Shemhamphorash and Nostradamus

Last week we sang the song of the sea and the parsha Beshalach contains those very important three verses of seventy two letters each. These three verses in the book of Shemot/names are the hidden star clock that tell us we we are in the continuum of beginnings/reshit and endings/acharit. Depth of beginning and depth of ending as the sepher yetzira calls these "depths'/omakim. The twentysecond of the seventy two names is associated with the priesthood of Yisrael. The three letters yod-yod-yod are the initial letters of the priestly blessing. The yod is also the beginning “seed” of all letters and so like stem cells they are the wild cards and the source of all the 22 autiot and thus the 72 names. Each of the 72 names have command of five degrees of the 360 degree circle of space; 72 X 5 = 360. The wobble of the Earth globe causes the stars of the shamayim to move through the wheel of the 72 spaces. A complete revolution taking 26,000 years. The ancient sages knew this and watched the night sky as a clock. The stars known as the teomim/twins of Gemini started to traverse the 22nd space of the clock in the 1400’s CE. The star beta Gemini left the space of Yod-Yod-Yod in the year 1990. For 500 years the completing of the true work of the Hebrew priesthood, to unite all the soul lineages of humanity needed to take place as the Teomom/twins transversed the 22nd name. For nine years(1990-1999) there were no major stars in the sacred space of the 22nd name. Then in the year 5760/1999 one of the brightest stars in the sky entered the place of the 22nd name; Canopus. This and the star Sirius are the brightest stars in the night sky. Canopus is the brightest star of the southern sky. It is called the pilot star of the fifty “oarmen” stars that make up the constellation of Argo. In Sanskrit this is argha, the ark. This is a remez/hint to the shaar haNun, the fifty gates of kedusha/holiness of the mekubalim. The Arabic astronomers called this brilliant star Suhail and students of the seventy two names will know that this is one of the names! Sael which is the name of the guardian of Rome/Edom samael; with the mem removed. This transformation of the sar/prince of Rome is a key to the end of this last “exile” of the holy peoples. This very important name, Sael, is the forty fifth of the series. And so we fathom the forty five days right now the comet Lulin whose name contains the Hebrew root for night(Leyl) comes by the Earth and grows into naked eye visibility by Rosh chodesh Adar. The night sky is singing to us. From the year 5760 and for 350 years the bright star Suhail will be in the sacred space of the seventy names, in the night sky. The great Rebbe Abraham Azulai predicted in his book L’chesed Abraham that the year 5760 would mark the beginning of the time when the borders of Yisrael would encircle the entire Earth. He understood the 72 names as a secret star clock. So did the famous and misunderstood French seer, Nostradamus who also mentioned the one date 1999 as the time when the “king of Awe’ would come from the “sky”. 1999 coincided with the Hebrew year 5760. This quatrain of the French seer was very rare in mentioning a precise date on the Gregorian calendar.
Today is the full moon of the month of the holy Shevat/scepter. The sacred Tree is once again in flower!
