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".

HaTesha The Nine turbulent rivers(5-770 Heh-tav-shin-ayin)

From the Sepher haZohar for this weeks Torah parsha Bo:
“The great dragon reposes between nine rivers, the waters of which are turbulent; and there is a tenth river whose waters are calm, and into the depth of which the blessings of the waters of Paradise descend three times a year. Into this river the dragon enters, making there his habitation; and thence he sallies forth and swims down to the sea, and devours there fish of all kinds, and then returns again to the river. The nine swift rivers are banked by trees and fringed with flowers. The parent river issued from the left side(desire) and from it three drops fell into a certain channel, and each of the three was divided again into three, and every drop became a river. These are the nine rivers which flow through all the firmaments. And from the final moisture that remained when all the drops had issued forth yet another drop was formed, which issued gently, and of this drop was formed the tenth river, which flows calmly. Into this river also flows a drop from the blessings poured forth from the right side by the “perennially flowing stream”, and it is greater than all the rest.”(Zohar II34b-trans after Sperling)
We ask that the blessings of the eternal river of life flow to all those suffering due to the turbulence of olam hazeh, and in need, and in need of refuah sheleimah/healing.

-a prayer that acknowledges the ongoing maelstrom, of brothers and sisters living (and dying) on the edge, of work still left to be done

Thank you for this, Michael
