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 Shape of it all/The Menorah/Tree

The crisis of change of these days, as it has always been, is based on issues involving the shape of the universe. The ancient aboriginal wisdom traditions are rooted in a five continuum geocentric world view. This worldview posits a Center/Source to all that is. The generally accepted modern scientific hypothesis rests on a four continuum worldview with no center. Three dimensions of space and one of time. Very lost in space. The wisdom traditions grow from a worldview that has a dimension of soul-being that holds the other dimensions within itself like an ocean and an island. The “light” of the lights we honour this time of year whether on the menorah or hanging on the tree flow from a Source that is the Center of the universe. The arguments about the existence of the “divine” and proper divine names and messengers, and the nature of “deities” may not be the real issue in the turbulence of our times. It is still about the “shape of the world” and the “where” of the divine. From the ancient Jewish wisdom of the Sepher HaZohar: “It flashes along through a hundred paths and ways, some narrow and some broad, until the house of the world was made. This House forms the centre of the universe, and it has many doors and vestibules on all its sides, sacred and exalted abodes where the celestial birds build their nests, each according to its kind. From the midst of it rises a large tree…(from Sperling translation Zohar I-172a). Happy Chanukah!
