This coming Chanukah and Christmas holy-days express a synchronicity of the two ceremonial calendars that explain how both have been needed as well as others through-out history in order to connect the soul realm of humanity to the heart of the fourth heaven where Peace radiates out from an eternal Beit-HaMikdash, house of holiness or Temple. Actually this synchronicity holds the key as to how the holy Bris milah, the covenant of Abraham is on one level an ancient shamanic prayer form(sepher yetzirah) meant to bring in the angel of Rome/Esau(power), as well as the other nation-angel princes we were exiled among, into a synchronous relationship with the Jewish lineage at a soul level. The ancient hebrew holy book, SepherYetzirah says the bris Milah is "between the ten toes", meaning it's efficacy is based on our journey in time- our walk - dor v dor(generation to generation) over many centuries through the world and the nations of exile.......This is why HaShem/Deity set up the prayer forms and the different religions sanctifying both the lunar(Jewish,Tibetan,Islamic) and solar(christian calendars). The Torah explains this dynamic of prayer vitally connected to a vast span of history in the section about Jacob's dream of the ladder which is a ladder through the heavens geared to the timeline of our journey through history. So a child who enters the covenant gains a name and a possibility for a deep soul connection. This is not only for the individual but it is a boon to all of humanity on a collective level. It facilitates a continual all pervading connection with the solar and lunar realms and other planetary heaven realms of the oceanic soul world. The seven dimensional grids(kameas see pic) aligning with the seven "heavens" linked to the sun,moon and planets in the ancient Hebraic worldview reveal when studied, some of the details. Talmudic midrashim/stories and aggadot/legends delineate the details of the seven "heavens"and what they "contain" and the centuries long "journey" it is to traverse them. This is a hint as to the efficacy of our Hebrew prayer lineage taking thousands of years to complete for a true Oseh Shalom, making the Peace on high a reality here on Earth. The actual calculation from the sources tells us it is 500 years journey to each "heaven" and 500 years journey to traverse each one so to get to the center of the 4th "heaven" of the Shemesh/sun it comes to 3750 years. This is about when the covenant was given to Abraham and Sarah at the oak of Mamre-3750 years ago. The solar fourth "heaven" the midrash tells us holds the eternal heavenly Jerusalem and beit Hamikdash. The Gnostic solar grid or kamea(Hebrew) of the sun of the "36" numbers(6X6 grid) links with the Gnostic Christian "solar logos"(and the Solomonic temple mystery tradition) and the "spirit" of the grid connects to the angel of Edom/Rome called samael- a seraph of the sun who is the nephesh root of the lower waters of desire and power(think Yaakov & Esau). Synchronous masses-communions of billions of Christians bringing their hearts to the divinity coinciding with the naming ceremonies of many Jews as well as other Shabbatot/Sabbaths and hagim/festivals over thousands of years are a key to why we have religious prayer forms and why we are now in a global awakening. The blueprint of this may be originally found in the Sepher Shemot/Exodus when Aaron's rod turned into a serpent that swallowed those of the Egyptian priests, the helical serpent being a symbol for a ceremonial wisdom lineage. It is what the EIGHT days of Chanukah and the renewal of the temple is all about on a the sod/secret level. It is an archetypal pattern that actually only highlights the possibilities of other synchronous dovetailing throughout the ceremonial calendar year and over the course of thousands of years of history. It also of course celebrates the FREEDOM to follow the Torah and name our children the way HaShem has told us to do. The Spanish Catholic church celebrates the feast of El Circumcision del Senor on January First.
Another significant synchronicity that we have discussed before on this blog is about the form of the government of the USA and our movement from the forty-fourth to the forty-fifth president. The kamea grid of numbers that aligns with the seventh heaven where the seat of the Divinity and the Beit Din, the Divine court resides, holds some significance for the people of Peace. We may see the square of numbers in the central place on the thanka image of the Tibetan Buddhist calendar.(see image) The total value of the square of Nine numbers, like the Nine seats of the SCOTUS is equal to forty-five. Now on the EIGHT nights of Chanukah we light a new set of candles increasing by one and so a total of Forty-four over the course of the holiday. Looking at the ancient Asian picture of the turtle square of nine numbers(see image above) you see how the Forty-four surround the central Forty-fifth. Now the Forty-fifth of those special set of seventy-two names of HaShem called Shemhamforash is the name Sael. We are told by the Jewish sages that this is actually the name samael, the angel guardian of Rome/Edom with the letter mem of the name removed and so this Sar/Chief is transformed to a holy angel of Peace. We pray for a world transformed these momentous days to an Earth safe, healthy and honored so our children may live in Peace.
