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".

Where is the Geulah? Finding the Center of all that Is

This weeks Zohar commentary of the Torah parsha Vaera contains a profound mystery. The four winds(directions),elements and metals are discussed as if in a wheel that generates the entire physical creation. The picture above is from The Sepher Eshel Abraham. It shows the four corners of the wheel with the twelve qualities that the sepher haZohar equates to the twelve tribes of Yisrael. We can not help but being aware of the center of the wheel, the thirteenth, which is the gematria value of the word Echad=one. The physical universe however does not contain a perfect circle or sphere anywhere and so the four continuum worldview posits that there is no center to the physical universe. Because of this prevalent worldview of the space-time continuum many people have no center to orient to and are in an illusory exile. The five continuum worldview of the wisdom tradition which is stated clearly in the small Sepher Yetzirah has a center. When a person internalizes a worldview that has the center then they become a stone in the temple so to speak that brings this Center into visibility in our world.
‘The first four elements have a deep significance for the faithful: they are the progenitors of all worlds, and symbolize the supernal chariot of Holiness. Also the four elements of fire, air, earth, and water have a deep significance. From them come gold,silver,copper, and iron, and beneath these other metals of a like kind. Mark well this! Fire, air, Earth, and water are the sources and roots of all things above and below, and on them are all things grounded. And in each of the four winds these elements are found-fire in the North, air in the east, water in the South, earth in the West; and the four elements are united with the four winds-and all are one. Fire, water, air, and earth: gold, silver, copper, and iron; north, south, east, and west-these make together twelve; yet they are all one.” Zohar II-23b(trans after Sperling).
If we add the four letters of the sacred Name to each direction which we are told in Zohar correspond to the senses of seeing, hearing, smelling and tasting then our wheel has the sixteen faces and qualities as Ezekiel saw manifested by the four faced Chayoth of the Merkava/Chariot. The world is only in a crisis at this time as much as folks are moving from a flat earth(four continuums/dimensions) worldview to the full five continuum worldview of the Sepher Yetzirah which has a center of the Shalom Shalem/complete Peace. Those finding the center find their Geulah/redemption!
