What is Time?

Do you take the Earth, Moon and Sun for granted? I did, until recently. Like most people, I assumed physics and random chance played some role in their creation. Then again, like most of us, until recently I thought our news was real. Fake news is the least of our issues.  That, at least, is created by man and controlled by men trying to manipulate us. Our universe, our solar system, the Earth, Moon and Sun are an entire different story, on a much larger scale, an enormous scale if you consider that our inner solar system is 186 million miles wide. Nothing of what I thought about them is real, yet the true reality has been available to us in every scientific journal; we just never thought to look. What you are about to changed my perception of the universe and our place in it forever.  I am going to piece it together for you as best I can in this brief article, using only the scientific facts readily available to all of us. Nevertheless, the purpose of these revelations is not to shock, nor is it to shatter the reality that we have all mutually constructed; it is to show us that there are back door escape hatches built into that reality, that the system was designed for us to uncover and harness it, while there is still time.

Time

Time itself is an  interesting concept, marked solely by the turning of the Earth, and its orbit around the Sun. Every time the Earth spins around another day has past, every time the Earth orbits the Sun another year has past. This is the 5778th year in the Hebrew Calendar, and for 5778 years the Earth has been orbiting the Sun at 66,600 mph. Yes, that is a scientific fact. and yes it is 666, and while prophecies ancient and modern call for this year to be the “end of days (end of time)” this 666 does not represent some apocalyptic mark of a beast. It represents the knowledge of 666, ancient and modern. That said, this is also the 66.6th jubilee year from when 600,000 men received the 10 Commandments at Mt. Sinai in the Hebrew year 2448.  So before we get too deep, since the moment the 600,000 Israelite Men (3.6 million Israelites in total) stood at Sinai, the Earth has circled the Sun at 66,600 mph, marking time for us for exactly 66.6 jubilee years.

When the Earth revolves around its equator we get morning, then night, one day.  When the Sun revolves around its equator we don not notice much. Yet, for all those 2448 years the Sun has been revolving at its equator, oddlyenough, in a 24.48 day cycle, meaning it completed one revolution every 24.48 days.  Therefore, in those first 2448 years that the Bible told us to start counting, the Sun spun on its axis 36,525 times, meaning that its rotation was set to match the 365.25 day annual orbit of the Earth around the it.  Moreover, since our Earth rotates completely in 24 hours, or 1 day, the Earth rotates exactly 24.48 times faster than the Sun. Again, these are all scientific facts that can be readily googled yet were never taught to us in school, and while they can be dismissed as coincidental, the Torah is 3330 years old and it chronicles clearly the 2448 year date.  And if you do not believe in G-d, the Creator, or some Divine force, you will have to come up for some other explanation since Man, 3330 years ago, could not have calculated the Sun’s rotation or the Earth’s speed through space.

There is another ancient book, the Zohar, written 1900 years ago, still long before Man could make any of these calculations.  In this divinely inspired set of books ancient knowledge has been compiled and channeled, including many of the prophecies calling for this year to be the so-called end-of-days.  Specifically, it is said to happen at the end of the 70-year period  from the formation of Israel becoming a nation in 1948.  So when the Zohar tells us about that 70-year period or that there are 70 faces (levels of understanding of the Torah) its author, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, would not have known about the Earth’s 66,600 mph orbit, or that mathematically speaking, there are exactly 70 factors of the number 66,600.  He did not have Google after all.

And yet, the author of the Torah knew to place the revelation of the 10 Commandments at the 70th chapter and split them so that there would be 50 chapters in Genesis–akin to the jubilee period–and 20 in Exodus so that the 10 Commandments would end in Exodus 20:18 with Moses disappearing into the mist to receive the Torah.  G-d, or whoever you think created the Torah, must have planned it to coincide with the year 2018 CE, or 70 years after 1948 CE.

Those 66.6 jubilee years, each a 50-year interval, as specified in the Torah, are actually 3330 calendar years so it is probably not coincidental the Sun is actually 333,000 times more massive than the Earth.  The Torah commanded us to count in 50-year intervals starting in 2448.  The Zohar (Book of Splendor) explained that “jubilee” is Binah and that Binah has 50 Gates, and that what we are counting toward is the reckoning with Binah, the higher spiritual dimension associated with the World to Come.

One fact neither the Torah, not the Zohar mentioned was that the surface temperature of the Sun is exactly 5778 degrees Kelvin, meaning that the life-giving surface temperature of the Sun marks the end of the 66.6 jubilee year period, the same 3330 years marked by the difference in size of the Sun and the Earth from 2448 to 5778. If I were making this up, it would be a great beginning to a Dan Brown novel, yet this is all very real.  This enormous time-keeping system seems to be tuned precisely to coincide with the Torah, the Zohar and prophecies counting from Adam to Moshiach (the Messiah), yet this is only the beginning.  These were just the first facts I stumbled upon.

And while there were 600,000 men standing at Mt Sinai back in 2448, there were probably 3.6 million people in total, including the women, children and not including the accompanying mixed multitudes. The Book in which we were commanded to count those jubilee 50-year intervals is the Torah, which as we said was given to us in the year 2448, and which has exactly (600,000-408) component letters.  Scholars, sages and kabbalists have all noted the connection between the 600,000 men and the supposed 600,000 letters of the Torah, which only makes sense when we realize the 27, or , Hebrew letters are broken down into exactly 50 component letters that when multiplied by each letter occurrence in the Torah works out to (600,000 – 408) letters.  This is relevant to us because 408 x 6 = 2448 and because multiple times the Zohar specifically mentions a period of 408 years leading up to the End of Days.  We will discuss that period in our next article; nevertheless, the square root of 408 is 20.19, as in 2019 CE, one year from now and the beginning of a new dawn.

Does all this seem contrived? It is not; these are scientific facts, ones that can only be calculated today with computers and advanced scientific instruments.  They are also in the palms of our hands and on the back of our wrists. Our scientific understanding of the universe has advanced in leaps and bounds, yet for the last few hundred years those advances have served to distance us from our spiritual development.  With the speeding up of technological development over the last few decades, this movement away from true spiritual beliefs has accelerated to the point where most everything is now upside down and backward. I did not understand until this moment why Rav Berg kept referring to how the eye sees images in our brains and minds: upside down and backward.  The more science advanced the more we became glued to the physical realm with thousands (now trillions) of data points becoming our entire world.  Do your kids look out the window or into their phones? It is time we turn the tables. Using only scientific facts about our solar system we can show that there is nothing random or unplanned about our existence. It was all premeditated and for a purpose.

Jubilee year = 50 years

66.6 jubilee years= 3330 years

2448 HC + 3330 years = 5778 HC

Sun is 333,000 times more massive than Earth

Earth Orbits Sun at 66,600 MPH

The Sun Revolves in a 24.48 day cycle

Earth revolves 24.48 faster than the Sun

In the first 2448 Years the Sun revolved 36525 times

The Earth orbits the Sun in 365.25 days

The Sun is 5778° K

The truth is that in our corner of the galaxy, contrary to common belief, speed, time and distance are not only related but integrated.  Scientists would tell us that this numerical relationship between the Sun’s size and the Earth’s size are purely coincidental, as is the relationship with their speed and their rotations, their temperatures too.  As for the historic and Biblical dates and their relationship to these self-same numbers, just more coincidence. We can stick our heads in the sand and believe that too, but it will not stop the clock from ticking. It will not stop this once in all time alignment from occurring this year.  As Rav Berg would often say, “there is no ‘time, space and motion’ they are one,” and as Rav Ashlag explained, in the spiritual realm distance is measured by similarity of form, not physical separation (i.e. 3330 and 333000 are nearly identical, while 3325 and 3330 could be worlds apart). Therefore, these relationships between the giant moving parts of our universe, whether it be the mass of a planet or the time it takes for it to revolve, or the speed that it is hurtling through space are not casual at all.  They represent a unity of purpose and intent.

Plainly speaking, they were purposely designed that way. It was no accident. And if it was done on purpose then someone had a purpose in doing so. And if so, it behooves us to figure out that purpose; after all, we are the ones trapped in that system, a system that is set to the number and year 5778, this year.

The Tilt

The search for how this artificial system that governs our lives works took me to the tilt in the Earth’s axis. As it orbits the Sun at 66,600 mph, the Earth also tilts toward it at 23.4 degrees, which means it also tilts away at 66.6˚.  Assuming the Earth is spherical and thus 360˚ round, it can be divided into four 90-degree quadrants stretching from the Poles to the Equator, and each 90˚quadrant is necessarily divided by the tilt into two parts, 23.4˚ and (90˚ – 23.4˚) or 66.6˚.  that tilt away.

Thousands of years ago without a telescope, tape measure, or calculator the Kabbalists divinely determined that the greater universe was divided into 10 dimensions.  The upper 3 were purely spiritual, the lowest one, where we reside, is a world of illusion, and the other 6 are bundled together as a ladder to Heaven and are collectively referred to as Zeir Anpin.  These same kabbalists and the Zohar also refer to the Sun as Zeir Anpin.  Thousands of years later, our physicists came to the same conclusion and have determined that we do indeed inhabit a greater 10-dimensional universe with some of the them bundled together as tightly would string. They refer to this as String Theory. 

The Zohar explains that the 6 spiritual dimensions that make up Zeir Anpin are represented by the number 6 for the 6 directions that make up the 3-dimensional world that we live in. They further tell us that Zeir Anpin is also represented by the ineffable Name of G-d (יהוה), which is spiritually associated with this dimension. Each Hebrew letter has an assigned value based on its energy frequency and the collective value of the letters in the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) is 26.  So given that and given that 23.4 and 66.6 are complementary angles, can it also be coincidental that 23.4˚ is precisely 26% of the full 90˚ angle, or that the Earth’s 23.4˚ tilted axis rotates against the backdrop of the constellations once every 26,000 years? This rotation is known as the precession of the equinoxes .

So given that whoever created our universe wanted G-d’s Name associated with the Earth’s tilt, we further find that (26 – 23.4) equals 2.6 or 10% of 26, which means that 23.4 is 90% of 26, thus relating the Earth’s tilt to G-d’s Name and the 90˚ right angle that defines our 3-dimensional universe.

The numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) is 26

Our 3-d universe is defined by the right angle, 90˚

The Earth’s axis is tilted 23.4˚

(90˚ – 23.4˚) or 66.6˚

(26 – 23.4) = 2.6

23.4 is 90% of 26

The precession of the equinoxes is 26,000 years

That 23.4˚ tilt of the Earth’s axis also means that the Earth’s direct angle to the Sun is 23.4˚ at the North Pole and 66.6˚ at the Equator, which is why the latitude of the North and South Poles are 66.6˚

Let us now examine the relationship between the angle 66.6° and 23.4° a little further. While we might roll our eyes that 23.4 is 432 backwards, we cannot ignore the fact that 66.623.4 = 43.2.

Moreover, 23.4 is .6 less than 24 hours, One day, matching the 6 hours before the first Shabbat that Adam sinned at the behest of the serpent, and also the 6 hours the Israelites did not wait for Moses to return with the tablets at the behest of the Erev Rav. Those 6 hours equate to 6 x 60 x 60 or 21600 seconds, an allusion to the Moon’s diameter, 2160 miles.  All the allusions to 216 alight on the sefira of gevurah of numerical value 216, signifying judgement. The Zohar tells us that our world was created in judgement and sustained by mercy, as in the allusions to 432. So while 234 and 432 are complimentary parts of 666, the 432 allusion to Binah is the spiritual reason the Earth is tilted off its strict axis by 23.4˚, thus binding it to the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) by way of the value 26 as described above.  Thus mercy was injected into the strict judgement of Creation, and instead of burning up we were allowed to develop and find our way to this threshold of choice.

234 + 432 = 666

 

גַּם כִּי-אֵלֵךְ בְּגֵיא צַלְמָוֶת, לֹא-אִירָא רָע– כִּי-אַתָּה עִמָּדִי;
שִׁבְטְךָ וּמִשְׁעַנְתֶּךָ, הֵמָּה יְנַחֲמֻנִי. Tehilim 23:4

This whole recent process of cosmic discovery for me began with the number 23 and the first thing that came to mind was Psalm 23.  Now deep into the process it has come back around, thanks to the rod and staff in Pslam 23.4, the most famous line in all of David’s Psalms. By the way, the exact midpoint in King David’s 70-year life is the exact midpoint in the 5778 years from Adam (אדם) to Moshiach, which is why the ancient kabbalists told us:

ADAM (אדם) stands for Adam-David-Moshiach  (א–ד–ם)
0 – 2889 -5778

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me;
Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.-Psalm 23:4

 

Even the longitude and latitude measures of our continents can be shown to be 66.6˚ at the widest and longest points, and the measure from the top of Mt Everest to the surface of the Dead Sea, the Earth’s highest and lowest points respectively, is also approximately 5.778 miles.

For 20 years we have been delineating the prophesies and the hidden secrets of the Torah that are all hinting at the year 5778 as the year prophesied for the coming of Moshiach, so while it is astonishing that the surface temperature of the Sun is 5778˚ Kelvin, every aspect of our universe that we choose to shine a spot light on is equally astonishingly beautiful in its divine symmetry of design, purpose and redundancy. For example, given that 26 is the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה), which as we mentioned the Zohar associates with the Sun, and given that 5778 is simply (6000 – 222), its notable that these 5778 years since the birth of Adam are precisely .222222% of 26,000, and moreover that 26 x 222.222 = 5778 and furthermore that 222 is .333 of 666.  Thus 5778 is not just a year, or the exact temperature of the Sun (Zeir Anpin) that is necessary to sustain life on Earth, it is also a specific portion of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).

Why 5778?

As we stated earlier there are 70 mathematical factors in 66,600. One of them, the prime factor, is 37 x 1800, or 37 x (3 x 6) x 100. This relates back to 5778, the chosen year so to speak, in that 5778 = (6000-222) and 222 is .037 of 6000. Moreover, if 222 is .037 of 6000, than 5778 is (100-.037) or .963 of 6000. That is simple arithmetic, I promise you, though, what is conceptually deeper is why 5778 is also equal to 6 x 963. The year 5778 is to 6000 as 6 is to 5778.

66,600 MPH is the Speed of the Earth

66,600 = 37 x (3 x 600)

5778 = (6000 – 222)

222 = .037 of 6000

5778 = .963 of 6000

5778 = 6 x 963

The year 5778 is to 6000 as 6 is to 5778.

The Sun = Zeir Anpin = 6 dimensions

5778˚ K = The surface temperature of the Sun

And

The numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) is 26

5778 = (6000 – 222)

26 x 222.222 = 5778

.222222% of 26,000 = 5778.

Was our planet tilted just to connect the surface shined on to the Sun’s surface temperature?

Rav Brandwein of blessed memory explained to me how his Uncle, Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag, HaSulam, knew 5778 was the year of the final redemption. It was based on the deep Kabbalistic premise of 2/3 and 1/3 or .666 and .333.  Starting with the universally accepted premise of the sages and tzaddikim that we were given 6000 for the 6 days of Creation, he divided those 6000 years into 2/3 and 1/3 or 4000 and 2000, then likewise divided the remaining 2000 into 1333 and 666, then again into 444 and 222. What was left was 4000 + 1333.333 + 444.444 = 5778.  The Arizal used a similar method to hint at the exact date.

Why 666? Why 6?

Nearly 1900 years before the Big Bang theory, the Zohar described our universe as beginning with a zero-dimensional point that expanded to single dimensional line and then a 2-dimensional plane or square if you will. Then with the outer boundary lines of this square expanding at right angles, representing the 3 columns, the 3-dimensional universe came into existence and the cube was formed. The expansion beyond that into a 4-dimensional hypercube was purely spiritual. It was called Binah. When it was a point it was represented by the letter Yud(י) of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) with a numerical value of 10. When it was a line it was represented by the letter Vav (ו) of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) with a numerical value of 6.  Thus the original line, drawn between two points had the numerical value of 10 + 6 + 10 or 26, the same as the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).

The elemental cube was constructed of a Vav (ו) in its length, width and height and thus numerically 6 x 6 x 6 or 216 in total 3-dimensional volume. The surface area of that 6-sided cube is 6 x 6 x 6 or 216, so inside and out we could say it is 216 + 216 or 432, which is the frequency (432 Hz) of the 4-dimensional realm of Binah, as discussed in prior articles.  Please note that when the Zohar refers to this cube shape, or to our 3-dimensional world, it most often describes it as the 6 directions.

The Moon is the 3rd element in this harmonically tuned celestial clock. Its diameter is 2160 miles, or 10 times the basic cube, referring to the 6 directions of Zeir Anpin formed by the letter Vav (ו) of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) as it entered and created our 3-dimension space.  In other words, the letter Vav (ו)–a straight line–engaged itself at right 90° angles. The volume of said cube (216) is half 432 Hz, the all-important frequency of the upper spiritual realm of Binah.

Not only is the lunar diameter 2160 miles, but the radius of the Sun is 432,160 miles, making the Sun’s radius 200.07 times larger than the Moon’s diameter. If our outer clocks are primed to receive the 432 Hz frequency with which the spiritual realm of Binah operates, then so t0o our inner clock. At an average of 72 beats per minute, the number of times our hearts beat in an hour is 4320 beats.

Notice that each beat of the basic heart rhythm has 3 parts, so 216 parts in each minute of 72 beat.

Students of Kabbalah will immediately recognize the association to the 72 Names (triplets) comprised of the 3 sequential verses of the Torah of 72 letters each, for a total of 216 letters. These 3 verses describe the splitting of the endless sea that occurred in 2448. There is a secret, one of many, embedded in the 72 Name matrix that students of Kabbalah would not know. If you look carefully, you will see that certain Hebrew letters have crowns on them, in this case the triple crown. There are only two Names of the 72 that have side-by-side crowned letters. The first is located column 5 row 7 and the other at column 7 row 8: 5-7-7-8.  There is a reason they are set in a matrix. There are similar hints and clues embedded in the 42-Letter Name, the Schema, the Psalms, and all throughout the Torah.

5 – 7 -7 -8

Every day, the Earth revolves on its axis in 24-hour cycles, which is 86,400 seconds, One Day, aligning the Earth’s rotation in seconds with the diameter of the Sun in miles, which is 864,320 miles long.

86,400 seconds, One Day : 864,320 miles

We see that time and distance, two independent concepts, are merging together in this giant schematic. In this harmonically balanced trio of the Sun, Earth, and Moon, the Sun is considered the beginning, the giver of Light and the Moon is the end, the ultimate receiver, with all 3 playing integral roles. The bond between the Sun and the Moon is highlighted with the Moon’s diameter, 2160 miles being incorporated into the Sun’s radius 432160 miles. Thus, we have the Sun’s diameter being 401 times greater than the moon’s and if we assume this is no coincidence then we know that 401 is the numerical value of the article Et (את), the 4th word of the Torah, representing the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet, the alpha and the omega, Aleph and Tav, the beginning and the end if you will. Kabbalistically, as advised by Abraham Avinu in his Sefer Yetzirah, written 3800 years ago, the letter Tav(ת) represents the Moon. Wherever we find the article Et (את) inserted in the Torah narrative it is significant because the complete value of the article Et (את) is 424, that of Moshiach Ben David.

The Zohar tells us that Et (את) means from Aleph (א) to Tav (ת), which is the distance from the primordial Aleph (א), also known as Binah to Malchut. In this unfolding schematic it means from the Moon (Malchut/Nukva) to Earth (ארץ), the physical reflection of Binah or junction point to the upper world.

When we define attraction between objects in this world we compare the size of the objects with their distance apart. Therefore, the distance between the Earth and the Moon divided by the Moon’s diameter is 111.1111, or 1/6th the 666.666 value repeatedly built into our solar system. So forget gravity as the sole attractive force; someone made sure the Moon was just the right distance away from the Earth.  Their diameters and their distance apart are preplanned elements of this beautiful harmonic synchronicity. And that relationship based on the number 111 is anything but arbitrary.

The value (111) is that of the first Hebrew letter Aleph (א) connected to the realm of Binah, and thus a huge injection of mercy.  The very first of the Torah’s many commandments was to bless the new moon every month. Since Aleph (א) is numerically counted as both 1 and 1000 and has a gematria value of 111 when spelled out, the 6 letter Alephs (א) in the Torah’s first verse sum to either 666, 6000 or 6 respectively, which brings all this clockwork precision of the cosmos to its central point: Aleph (א), the reset button. By the way, when the Aleph (א) is broken down into its component letters, they collectively have the value of 32, as in the the 32 Paths of the Tree-of-life and as in the pull of gravity, 32 ft/sec².

Temperature

The symmetry and harmonic correlation is not just skin deep. We discussed in depth in a previous article about the syncing of the 3 temperature scales and how they align with the dimensions of the Third (3rd) Holy Temple to be constructed shortly. Just below the Sun’s surface of 5778˚ K, is its Chromosphere or atmospheric ring, which is even warmer at 7800˚ F or 4320˚ C.  According to Rav Brandwein, may his memory be for a blessing, the 78 in 7800˚ F and especially in 5778˚ K stands for the values of the Hebrew initials of the Tree-of-Life(עץ–חיים), the non-illusory reality that is supposed to become available to use this year. It also stands for Adonai Echad (יְהוָה אֶחָֽד) from the Shema prayer, whose complete value is also 78. As we explained before and will cover again, there is enormous meaning to Adonai Echad (יְהוָה אֶחָֽד), G-d is One, on so many levels.

The Sun, synced to the same 3 temperature scales, is a powerful enormous furnace, burning at the precise temperatures so that its omitted light is processed in just the right way to sustain and illuminate our lives.  No one would question that it is a herculean task to create a star, the Sun, at all, let alone to mold it just right that so that it would sustain life at a specific distance away.  So why does its various temperature levels and measurements need to align with those of the Earth and the Moon? They are going to receive the light regardless, right? And who would have figured that the life and consciousness sustained by that Sun would reach a level after 5778 years whereby we could figure out its temperature at its core, its surface and its chromosphere? That would have taken extraordinary planning? But why?

Could there be a reason for Global Warming?

All this is being revealed as “global warming” raises the mean surface temperature of the Earth to 57.78˚ just as we enter the year 5778.

Reflecting on 27.3, the value of the word “gematria”, it is also the core temperature of the Sun at 27.3 million degrees Fahrenheit. Twice 273, or 546, is the sum of the initials of all the sefirot and is the gematria of Israel including the kolel, as advised to us by the Arizal.   So we now have the Sun’s temperature at its core, chromosphere, and surface, inclusive of all 3 temperature scales, integrally related to all the movement and mass in our solar system.  When the Kelvin scale was established based on the absolute freezing point of -273˚ C there was no way of man knowing that the core temperature of the Sun was 27.3 million degrees Fahrenheit and yet divinely a balance between absolute cold and absolute heat had already been built into the Sun.  Were these measurements important to G-d, or did He just want us to find them and their symmetry? Is it fitting we found them in 5778 or was it planned all along? We could not have found them much earlier as the technology was not available. Yes, the numbers meant something to the Kabbalists for thousands of years, but they had no way of knowing the temperature of the Sun or the diameter of the Moon.  It took time for the ancient and modern knowledge to merge; it took 5778 years to be precise.

Convinced that there is more than meets the eye going on with our universe, we could stop our investigation right now and limit our understanding, but Binah means Understanding and only by understanding are we going to be able to get in.  In the realm of Binah, everything is interconnected and as we have seen so far, everything in our world seems to be connected as well–only that we had no idea. When Isaac dug wells he was not looking for water. We need to keep digging if we want to reach the light.

Okay, so we know that the Sun’s surface temperature is 5778˚ on the Kelvin scale. Our scientists also tell us that Zero degrees (0°) on that Kelvin scale describes the moment when it is so cold that all motion stops. This absolute freezing point is -273.15˚ C.  All well and good, except that those dark, slightly cooler, spots on the Sun, aptly named sunspots, revolve around it in exactly 27.3 days,  and our Moon also orbits the Earth in those same 27.3 days. Picture it for a second. Place yourself just outside our solar system and picture it: against the background of absolute stillness, giant cooler dark spots are circling the sun in harmonic unison with the Moon circling the Earth—a precision dance, each pacing each other as if they were mentally connected.

We spoke about the 111 (Aleph) relationship between the Moon’s diameter and its distance from Earth, now we learn that the ratio of the Moon’s diameter over the Earth’s diameter is .273. Diameter is not just a distance. It means the Moon’s overall size and spherical volume is 27.3% of the Earth’s, even as it revolves around that Earth at the same exact 27.3 day pace that the sunspots are also revolving around the Sun’s surface.

Furthermore, the amount of time the Moon takes to complete one turn on its axis with respect to the stars is also 27.3 days (a sidereal day), and 273 days marks the ¾ point in the Earth’s 365-day journey around the Sun every year.  Because of how the temperature scales were designed, the other key point on the Kelvin scale from 0˚ K (-273˚ C) to 5778˚K is the melting point of ice, alternatively the freezing point of water, which is 273˚K.

Absolute Zero: -273.15˚ C

Sunspots revolve around the Sun’s surface in 27.3 days.

The Moon orbits the Earth in 27.3 days.

The ratio of the Moon’s diameter over the Earth’s diameter is .273.

Moon’s overall size and spherical volume is 27.3% of the Earth’s.

Moon revolves on its axis in 27.3 days.

The freezing point of water: 273˚K.

The core temperature of the Sun is 27.3 million degrees Fahrenheit.

Why? None of these physical phenomenon have anything to do with one another, no physical reason to sync up.

In a more basic geometric sense, the area of a square is 27.3% larger than the area of a circle inscribed or drawn inside it. This is actually significant because it means 27.3 plays a major role as a ratio when we go from the basic 2-d square and 3-dimensional cube to the circles and spheres we find all around us.

Kabbalistically, it is notable that a circle of 666 would yield a square circumscribed around it with an area of 848, which is equivalent to 2 x 424, or two times the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David.

Why 27.3? Could it be that 33.3 – 6 = 27.3? Once again, every key measure of our solar system harks back to the number 6 and the 333/666 relationship (1/3, 2/3).

Even the Torah made a point of the number 273:

“Number every firstborn male of the sons of Israel from a month old and upward, and make a list of their names.” Numbers 3:40; “and all the firstborn males by the number of names from a month old and upward, for their numbered men were 22,273.” Since they counted 22,000 Levites, Numbers 3:43; “For the ransom of the 273 of the firstborn of the sons of Israel who are in excess beyond the Levites,” Numbers 3:46

The Dance of the Three Elements

Once again, the universe is showing us an astonishing symmetry and similarity of form between time, space and motion. So how does this integrate with the 666-relationship and the Primordial Aleph (א) of the realm of Binah? Well, while 273 x 666 is 181818, which is 60606 x 3, Rabbi Abraham Azulai pointed out 400 years ago in his book Chesed L’Abraham that the 3 iterations of the spelling out of the letter Aleph (אלף) equal 1818.

Gematria is the ancient science of the numerical recognition and encodings of the energy represented by the Hebrew letters as they combine with one another. It was used extensively by the ancient kabbalists to understand the secrets and spiritual underpinnings of our universe.  Of the 70 levels of understanding of the Torah, Rav Abulafia of blessed memory, said that gematria was the deepest. The gematria value for the word “gematria” itself is 273.  Obviously, whoever built this enormous cosmic clock did not want us to miss the point.

In this melodic dance of the 3 cosmic bodies that govern our livesthe Earth, Sun and Moonthe ordinal value of their Hebrew names, Ertz (ארץ), Camah(חמה), and Levanah(לבנה) is 48, 26, and 33 respectively and their collective sum is 107.  This is telling because the sum of the integers from 1 to 107 is 5778.  Pure coincidence? Perhaps, but is it also a coincidence that those 66,600 mph that the Earth is circling the Sun is also 107,000 kilometers per hour or that the distance between the earth and the Sun divided by its diameter is 107. In other words, like the 111 Moons, the distance between the Earth and the Sun equals 107 Suns. And since everything in our world is reflected in (or from) the Torah it is noteworthy that there are 107,000 letters in the Torah preceding the 10 Commandments? To round things out, the Sun’s diameter divided by the distance from the Earth to the Moon is 3.6 and the sum of the numbers from 1 to 36 is 666, which brings us back to 66,600 mph.

The ordinal value of the Hebrew names for the Sun, Moon, and Earth  = 107

The distance from the Earth to the Sun = 107 Suns.

∑ 1 to 107 = 5778

The Earth Orbits the Sun at 107,000 KPH

There are 107,000 Letters preceding the 10 Commandments

The 10 Commandments begin at the 54th Paragraph of Exodus and 54 x 107 = 5778

The 10 Commandments end in Verse 20:18

2018 CE = 5778 HC

The Sun’s Diameter is 3.6 times the Distance from the Earth to the Moon

∑ 1 to 36 = 666

The truth be told I did not just come across the relationship between 107 and 5778 recently. I have known about it for 20 years. It is a deep Kabbalistic concept that energy is never lost so when we count whole numbers like 1 , 2, and 3 they exist individually and as a collective (1+2+3 = 6). This is a principle embedded throughout the Torah. The Sum ∑1 – 7 = 28. mirrors the 7 words and 28 letters of the Torah’s first ver, whose total gematria value is 2701, equivolent to ∑1 – 73, the numerical value of Chochma (Wisdom)  Then adding the very next word brings the total to 33 letters of numerical value 3003, which works out to ∑1-77, the value of mazal (fortune).  Another example is found in the sum of all 90,100 Yuds(י), Heis (ה) and Vavs(ו)–the components of the Tetragrammaton  (יהוה)–that are in the Torah  since 90,100 = ∑1-424 , the value of Moshiach Ben David.

Before we go on, let us try to make some sense of this. There are 111 Moons between the Earth and the Moon, and 107 Suns between the Earth and the Sun.  The 107 measures time, giving us a limit of 5778 years. The 111 measures distance, the spiritual distance to reach the Aleph (א) from the Malchut, Moon. 111 is the value of “the line (הקו)”, the line that is drawn down to us from Binah.

Considering the ordinal value of the 3 names again, we see the hand of G-d, or at least His Name (יהוה) represented: 4+8+2+6+3+3 = 26. These 3 names and 10 letters can be neatly arranged into the 3 columns and 10 dimensions (sefirot) of the Tree-of-Life that is at the heart of the ancient kabbalistic understanding. The 3 letters of the Sun(חמה) are on the right, the 3 letters of the Earth (ארץ) are on the left and the 4 letters of the Moon(לבנה) form the central column. Their complete gematria—their standard sofit numerical value plus the ordinal or alphabetical placement value, of the 10 letters—is equal to 1332 or 2 x 666, when the kolel of all the 16 elements of the equation are subtracted.

We mentioned that according to Abraham the Patriarch the Moon is associated with the letter Tav(ת) of numerical value 400, and the Sun is associated with the letter Caf (כ), representing Keter, the crowning highest dimension, whose numerical value of 20 is the square root of 400 and thus the essence or source of it. Similarly, the Sun is the source of the Moon’s light. Therefore, given all the solar connections to 666, it is significant that 20 = 6.666 x 3, and more so that the Western Calendar year corresponding to 5778 is 2018 CE and that 2018 = (666 x 3 + 666.666 x 3).

20 = 6.666 x 3  and 18 = (6 x 3)

2018 = (666 x 3 + 666.666 x 3)

So whether the year is 2018, or 20 centuries (6.666 x 3) plus 18 years (6 x 3), the year 2018 is all about the 6’s (vavs ווו) and their relation to 3-dimensional structure of our reality. The gematria equivalent to 20 (כ) and 18 (חי), or 2018, is keter (crowning summit) with chai (life) respectively, spelling out the “pinnacle of life.” Like any pinnacle, it is certainly a pivotal moment in time and in our history.  A culmination may be an even better translation, one fitting with all the prophecies.

“And the sun also rises, and the sun goes down” – Kohelet 1:5

The Earth (ארץ) begins with the letter Aleph (א), the Sun (חמה) begins with the letter Chet (ח), and the moon (לבנה) begins the with the letter Lamed (ל), and as we just explained the moon is energetically guided through the Tav (ת). The Hebrew letter dalet spelled (דלת) contains both the lunar letters Lamed (ל) and Tav (ת) and represents the same realm as the moon, Malchut, the realm that has no light of its own, as explained in the Zohar.  When we combine these 3 letters, representing the Earth, Sun and Moon, we get (אחד) the Hebrew word for One, as in “He and His Name are One” and “G-d is One” from the Shema prayer. The numerical value for Echad (אחד) is 13 which harks back to the 3 names and 10 letters and to the 3 columns and 10 dimensions (sefirot) of the Tree-of-Life. Now these 3 letters are each found exactly 1 time within the all-important 42-Letter Name Matrix. They are found respectively within the 1st triplet of each of the 1st, 3rd and 5th lines and it just so happens that these 3 triplets add up to 173 in standard gematria, which is the small gematria value for the entire 42 letters. These represent the 173 keys to Binah given to Moses as detailed in the Zohar. So if you were looking for the keys to get into Binah you need look no further than the 42-Letter Name.

We saw that when we tithe or subtract 1/10th of the value (26) of the Tetragrammaton  (יהוה) we get the value of the Earth’s tilt etc, 23.4˚  Then taking the value 27.3 repeated above as the net value of (30 – 1/10th) or 27.3, in other words (30 – 2.7) = 27.3.  Abraham, the Patriarch explained that the numerical value 30 is associated with the Hebrew letter lamed (ל) and that this letter lamed (ל) is associated to the sefira of Binah by virtue that it is the only letter that is drawn above the plane of existence. Given that this may be one reason why the Zohar tells us that there needs to be (לו) or 36 tzadikim present at all times to sustain the world.  So while it is not coincidental that (27.3 = 17.3 + 10), harking back numerically to the 173 keys of the 42-Letter Name, and the 10 sefirot, it is also not random chance that the sum of the integers from ∑ 1- 36 = 666.

It is interesting that One (אחד) is associated with 173 and the 42-Letter Name of Creation, because it was on the first day of Creation, found in Genesis 1:5, when “G-d named the light ‘Day,’… It was evening and morning, One day.” Independently, our scientists have determined that there are exactly 173 astronomical units in One day.  In other words, in relation to the set distance between the Earth and the Sun (93,000,000 miles approx.), this is how far light travels at the speed of light (186,000 mps) in One Day’s time (86,400 seconds).  What did G-d name the light? Day. And One day is divided into 2 parts (“evening and morning, One day,”) just as 173/2 = 86,400 seconds and 186,000/2 = 93,000,000.

“If my covenant be not day and night, it were as if I had not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth… -Jeremiah 33:25

According to the Zohar, “one day” refers to the “everlasting day” in the “everlasting world,” the world of Binah.

Consider this: While the speed-of-light is 186,000 mps and that it is considered by physicists to be primordial, existing far beyond the birth of our Sun, how contrived is it that the width of the Earth’s orbit is 186,000,000 miles wide?

In the simplest sense, the light traverses the Earth’s orbit in 186,000,000/186,000 or 1000 seconds. Spiritually, the value of Aleph is 1000, and time of Binah is 1000 years long. The difference between the Torah’s first verse (2701) and the 42-Letter Name (3701) is 1000. This is not surprising since the 42-Letter Name, that begins and ends with the letters  Aleph (א) and Tav (ת), is our bridge to Binah and always has been.

By the way, the Earth’s 93,000,000 mile distance from the Sun is also 149.5 million KM using the metric system and 1495 is the sum value of all 22 Hebrew letters.

The Genesis verses 1:5 -1:7, including the excerpt above, all occurred before the 2nd day of Creation was sanctified. “It was morning, one day…water from water” has the standard gematria of 2448, as in the year the Israelites stood at Sinai and as in the 24.48 days the Sun takes to revolve at its equator. It is also 6666 in full sofit gematria inclusive of the kolel of 18 for the 18 words and verses. Moreover, when G-d separated the “water from water (מַיִם לָמָיִם)” He also split its numerical sofit value of 1332 in 2 to get 666.

 

Genesis verses 1:5 -1:7

וַיְהִיבֹקֶר, יוֹם אֶחָדוַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים, יְהִי רָקִיעַ בְּתוֹךְ הַמָּיִם, וִיהִי מַבְדִּיל, בֵּין מַיִם לָמָיִם

וַיַּעַשׂ.”

A deeper secret embedded in “water from water (מַיִם לָמָיִם)” is that in complete gematria the letter lamed (ל) has a value of 42, as in the 42-Letter Name of G-d, and each of the two words for water (Mayim  מים) have the complete gematria of 126 or (3 X 42) representing the 3 columns of the complete Tree-of-Life.  According to Rabbi Chaim Vittal of blessed memory, each of these 3 Trees has 42 parts. In total, the 3 components Mayim-Lamed-Mayim, themselves reminiscent of H2O in their composition, there are 7 associations with 42.  When G-d was splitting the water from water, He was separating the upper and lower 42-Letter Names and setting up the dynamic in which they and the Tree-of-Life would function as a nexus between Binah and our world in order to spiritually maintain our universe. It was this action and the splitting of the waters that later manifest on cue as the splitting of the Endless Sea 2448 years later. So it is not coincidental then that our scientists have figured out that the Molar mass or molecular weight of water is 18.01528 g/mol, yet again connecting a crucial life-sustaining element in our environment to 18 or 3 x 6.

What is the Source?

We have already discussed the letter Vav(ו) as the origin of the value 6, as in 666, and we know that 6 x 6 formed the first square and 6 x 6 x 6 the first and basic cube. Yesod, the 6th dimension in Zeir Anpin is the pivotal point and spiritual reservoir above our world.  As Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto explained in his book, “Secrets of the Future Temple” that “It is Binah that sets limits and measure, for she is the source. When the quality of strict measure reaches Yesod it takes on her name and is called “the measuring rod…the length of the rod is six [6] cubits. Each cubit is six [6] handsbreaths…(when all are connected to the 6 directions and sefirot]and when they connected to one another, they make thirty-six[36], corresponding to the length of this rod.”

6 Handsbreaths = 1 cubit

36 Handsbreaths = 1 measuring rod

36 inches = 1 Yard

3.6 ft = 42 inches

3.6 months = 42 months

The basic cube =6 x 6 x 6 = 6 x 36 = 216 =6³ = 1 cubit³ = 1 = One 

The 42-Letter Name is our nexus to Binah and contains all the keys we need to access it. It is the ONLY Name we can access safely as we access it from below and it get processed by the Upper 42-Letter Name above. In other words, it has an impermeable firewall to protect it and us. At the end of the 6th  line of the 42-Letter matrix, at the end of the line corresponding to Yesod, are the letters (קז) of numerical value 107, which we know alludes to 5778.  Then in the middle of the 7th and final line, corresponding to our physical world, we have the Vav(ו). This Vav(ו), or line, is part of the two letters (קו) that spell the Hebrew word for “line,” kav(קו). Then the gematria of the 4 sequential letters that include that line (קוצי) is 216, representing the cube of that line. But it all started with the single point called Zion (ציון) also embedded and encoded into this 7th line, using the same 4 letters (קוצי), utilizing the component final nun (ן) component of the koof(ק). Zion is the Upper Jerusalem, the point through which all the real (Spiritual) light of our universe flows. To quote the Zohar, “Zion is the Inner Yesod of the Nukva [Malchut].”

“Out of Zion, teh perfection of beauty, Elohiim has shone forth.” -Tehilim 50:2

The 3 celestial numbers used as angles, temperature, times, and distances used in the design of our universe line up in a very specific and ordered way: 23.4 – 26 – 27.3 are 2.6 and 1.3 units apart respectively, meaning that of the entire 3.9 units that separate the measures 23.4 and 27.3  are split into the .666 and .333 proportions (i.e 2.6/3.9 = .666 and 1.3/3.9 = .333).

Furthermore, a deeper level of gematria reveals that (23.4 X 26 X 27.3)/ (23.4 + 26 + 27.3) = 216.55 thus circling back on the basic cube.  And when we add the three basic distances (diameters) of these same celestial bodies, 216 + 432 + 864, we get 1728, which is a 12³ cube and the sum of 6 cubes of 216 The sum of 1728 is also one less than the 1729 words in the Torah that have the value 26 of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).  The relationship with the cube shape is not a casual one, as the 3-dimensional cubic shape necessarily has 6 side (faces), 8 vertices (points) and 12 edges, totaling 26 total elements. The 4-dimensional cube or hypercube, corresponding to Binah, has 42 faces, 72 vertices and 72 edges for a total of 186 as in the 186,000 mps speed of light and 186,000,000 mile width of our earthly orbit.  This makes perfect sense as information in the state of Binah is instantaneous, meaning it travels around at the speed of light.  It also makes sense that we can access Binah through the 42-Letter Name of G-d and the 72 Names (Triplets). This is also why the 4 paragraphs of the Shema have 42, 72, 50 and 72 words each.

Channukah

Moreover, this corresponds to what the Zohar tells us are the 36 hours of the Ohr Ha-Ganuz, the concealed light of Binah, which was set aside for Adam even though he had sinned.  This is the special light set aside and available for us to tap into every Channukah as we light the 36 Chanukkiah candles over the 8 days for the sum of the numbers from ∑ 1 to 8 is 36.

There is a an interesting story regarding the Sultan’s search for the meaning of the 9th Channukah candle, the Shamash or helper candle. What he never learned was that the Shamash (שמש) is spelled the same way as is the Sun in Hebrew, Shemesh (שמש), both of which have the ordinal value of 42 for the two shins (שש) and 13 for the Mem (מ). This is just like the Mem-Bet (מב) or the Shem Mem-Bet, the 42 Letter Name, whose value is 42 plus an ordinal value of 13, for a total of 55. It is also just this the 13 words with the initial Vav (ו) is the first paragraph of the Shema, the one with 42 words, combined with the 42  words with the initial Vav (ו) in the rest of the 4 paragraphs for a total of the 55 mercies.  We already know that the Sun is represent by the Vav (ו) and that 13 is the value of Echad (אחד), One. So combining all that we know, can the secret of the Shamash (שמש) candle standing above the rest be that it is a Vav (ו), the one that represents the Sun, Shemesh (שמש)? It certainty looks like a Vav (ו) and it brings everything together as One. Moreover the Vav (ו) of value 6 times the 36 candles is 216 again.

Meanwhile, with the 8 Shamash (שמש) candles there are 44 candles in total plus the One Echad (אחד), making 45, representing the other Name for the Sun (חמה). Chamah (חמה) can be broken down to chet(ח) for the 8 nights and Mah (מה) for the Tetragrammaton of Zeir Anpin at the level of Sun.

Channukah 5778 is almost upon us, the more we can harness its secrets the better our connection to Ohr Haganuz, the Light of Moshiach will be. The proper Chanukah meditations as detailed by the Arizal can be found here. If you are going to light the candles, you want to get the most out of it for your family and our world, right? Who knew more than the Ari?

Then we have the standard value of Shemesh (שמש) which is 640 or (8² x 10) and when we add the Tetragrammaton  (יהוה) to the Sun (שמש), both representative of Zeir Anpin, we get 640 + 26 = 666, yet again.

 

This is all very surreal. Let us step back and examine what we now know about our universe in the way that G-d and the beings in Heaven might see it, or aliens in outer space if that is where your faith lies.  Our solar system is in reality a giant clock with enormous mechanical gears turning one another in lock-step. Our hearts beat to the ticking of time that is based on the turning of the Earth and Moon as they spin in harmonic sync with and revolve around the Sun. They are all aligned, tuned, and constructed to the same proportions (including their mass, radius, diameters, etc.) and then tilted just so.  Their speed and distance traveled is likewise aligned to those selfsame proportions, as is the strength of their internal battery, which is set at 5778K.   Perhaps, like its Swiss counterparts, this clock-like mechanism gets gunked up over time because of all our klippot, negativity, and acquired tikkune.  Or perhaps the gears in this giant clock-like mechanism are wound to only last 5778 years, and unless the reset button is pushed at the start of 2019 CE it will grind to a halt in one way or another.  We cannot know for sure.  The two things we do know are that one, the ancient ones prophesied all this thousands of years before they could have physically known any of it, and two, the year 5778 is upon on.

We can no longer view our solar system as a streak of random accumulations of meteorites and luck, all floating within a sea of endless stars and galaxies. Random luck does not align proportions across different physical elements and modalities. Random luck does not set the various temperature levels of the Sun to match our planets sizes and speeds of rotations.  Nor does evolution and physics.  Random luck does not make the primordial mathematical constant Phi (1.6180033889…), which controls the spiraling growth throughout nature from our DNA to the shape of galaxies, align with the 3 Vavs(ווו) and 5778.

Phi^18 = 5778.000 and 18 = 6+6+6

Nor does random luck does insert the numerical string 5778 and 2019 three (3) times each within the first 1000 digits (10³) of Pi. No, there is nothing random about this, and we cannot take these alignments of our solar system for granted.  The Earth is not simply in a fortuitous orbit around the Sun; it is set in a fixed mechanism, designed not by evolution and simple laws of physics, but by strict intent and purpose. Abraham and the true kabbalists have known this for thousands of years.  Our scientists are loathe to admit it, but all the technological advancements of the last few decades have served to prove it.  Like Abraham, modern physicists now believe the greater universe is designed around 10 dimensions bundled together. Abraham taught us their names and their relationships with one another; our physicists are confirming the mathematics.

Most of the information offered above were not kabbalistic secrets; they were just little known scientific facts about our solar system that we tied together and highlighted. Originally, we had intended for them to serve as an introduction to the real secrets, ones which we all need in order to break out beyond the clock-like confines of our physicality. As the details of the mechanism that is our universe became more numerous, it became apparent that we needed to present these critical bridges to the true Binah reality in a separate article, which will follow shortly. It also became apparent just how critical these revelations are.

Stay tuned. In our next article we will show exactly when the dawn of time began and how we can blow past this event horizon with connections already found in the Torah and our siddurim.

Zohar Vayeshev 16:155 “Low and behold: how foolish are men who neither know nor care for teh ways of the Holy One, blessed be He. They are all asleep, and sleep never leaves their eye sockets.”

If you buy into the idea that everything is random and life will keep evolving forever, keep at it.  If you woke up and now realize that for the last 5778 years we have been living in a giant experimental Petri dish, it is time to take matters in your own hands before someone turns out the light.  Is it just a random occurrence that Putin has just launched the most powerful nuclear Submarine ever, the Prince Vladimir, capable of hitting targets specifically”5778″ miles away?  Is all the chaos in the world right now also coincidental? Is it coincidental that we have finally woken up this year to the fact that most of what we thought was real and news was fake? Is our news any more contrived than what we have been led to believe about the origins of our solar system? What is real? It is no wonder that for thousands of years the kabbalists have described our world  “the world of illusion.”

The rigid structure of our solar system made our world a wonderful and protective incubator in which our population has grown from 2 individuals to 7.6 billion people over the last 5778 years, yet it also made it a prison.  We are looking out from this prison, not in.  We are on the inside looking out through the numerical bars.  Do you agree it is time we break out of this contrived prison of physical limitations?  Do you want to escape to the limitless realm of unbound possibilities, Binah. That is what awaits us outside these tall fixed walls.

We look forward to breaching the walls with you, very soon,

Chag Chanukah Sameach

Sukkot in 5778; The Only One that Matters.

This year, more than ever in our history, more than ever in the 3330 years since we entered the desert, it is imperative we make the Sukkot connections with deliberate consciousness and that we utilize the G-d given technology at our disposal to make the highest possible linkages to Binah/Moshiach for ourselves, for Israel, and for the world. When we are called to the Torah we are supposed to channel and share our energy with the entire congregation.  Even more so when we are called before the King of Kings and receive his blessings and energy for the new year; we are suppose to share it with the whole world, hence the holiday of Sukkot.  Through the proper meditations and the implementation of the ancient knowledge with the proper traditional technology the well-springs will open and flow for everyone.

We are repeating and updating below an article that we have posted over the years to explain many of the secrets and the kavannot of the shakings of the lulov within the sukkah. This year, if we shake with our hearts we will shake the world awake and shake open the gates. Let us do it together.

The Shakings

Regarding the daily shakings of the four species, there are 5 sets, each of which is done in the 6 directions of the cube, for a total of 30. This corresponds to the 30 blasts of the shofar in each set on Rosh Hashannah and to the large letter Lamed(ל), which is spiritually connected to Binah and which has the numerical value 30, and which is found in the Torah reading just prior to Rosh Hashannah. The word Lamed (למד) has the numerical value of 74 or 70 +4, representing the 70 Nations and the 4 species, also the 70 years and the 4 exiles, and not coincidentally to the large letters Ayin (ע) and Dalet (ד) of the numerical values 70 and 4 respectively of the Shema.

That letter Lamed (ל) connects to the Lamed (ל)of Lulav (לולב), the closed palm plant that serves as the central column among the 4 species. According to Abraham Avinu, it is also the letter Lamed(ל) that along with the letter Pe (פ) controls the month of Tishrei (Libra), the month in which we do both the shofar blowings and the shakings. It is also the lamed (ל)of the word Aleph (אלפ, the first), and when the controlling letters of Tishrei, the letters Lamed(ל) and Pe (פ) are completed with the letter Aleph (א) they spell out the word Aleph (אלפ), connecting them to keter and to the beginning, as in Aleph B’Tishrei (permuted to spell Bereshit, “In the beginning”).  It also connects the month of Tishrei and all the holidays in it to the primordial Aleph (א) and to the upcoming 1000 (eleph, אלפ) years of Binah.

If you have not figured it out yet, most things in Kabbalah come in threes(3’s) or triplets, corresponding to the 3 column archetype of our 3-dimensional universe. The 3 shakings that we make per each of the 6 directions of our essentially cubic sukkah, correspond to the 3 beats per type of blast of the shofar that we just did on Rosh Hashannah.

Therefore, there are 18 shakings in total per set, and as Rav Abraham Brandwein of blessed memory points out, “The Lulav hints at the vertebral column that has 18 vertebrae and every movement indicates vitality. Thus all 4 species need to be damp and alive and not dry.” The 18 shakings also corresponds to the value of the word, chai(חי), life. And straightening this connection is that the word value of lulav is 68, as in chaim (חיים),life and the Tree-of-life.

With 18 shakings per each of the 5 sets, plus the shaking at the blessing there are 91 total shakings per day, which corresponds to the numerical value of amen and the all-important unification of G-d’s Names the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) with Adonai (אהדונהי) that we should meditate on whenever we same Amen. Beside this all-important unification, the value 91 is most appropriately also the value of the word Succah (סוכה)itself, which is designed to help us to integrate the inner and outer light.

Moreover, given the 5 sets in 6 directions each, we have 30 daily major shakings, which in the 7 days, totals 210 total shakings, as in the 210 years of Egyptian exile. The 210 total shakings in the complete cycle of 7 days are very significant and are not coincidentally related to the 210 years of Egyptian exile.  It is well known that the maximum height of a sukkah is 20 cubits, though what is concealed in that cubic space that is contained within that maximum 20 cubit cube are 20 concentric cubes, each diminished by 1 cubit at a time. In other words, there are 20 cubes within one another like Russian dolls: one of 20 cubits³, the next of 19 cubits³, then 18 through …1 cubit³.  If these cubes were stacked on top of one another, we would have a towering stack of 20 cubes equal to 20+19+18…1, which equals 210 cubits in total height and 44,100 cubits³ in total volume.  The number 20 (twenty) in Hebrew is written Esrim (עשרים) of numerical value 620, the same as the word, Keter, the highest dimension, and the same as the 620 letters in the 10 Commandments. This is like the Holy of Holies itself which measures 20 x 20 cubits square.

When we reach Keter in our counting or stacking from 1…18+19+20, we reach 210 levels, or years in the case of the Egyptian exile, so is it coincidental that we also reach the top of the Great Pyramid of Giza at exactly 210 levels and 210 cubits in height?  The volume of those 20 cubes, 44,100 cubits³, is awfully evocative of the Hebrew word for truth, Emet of numerical value 441.

Why make this comparison? Because just as the pyramid was an antennae built to all the right codes and specifications, so is your sukkah. It is designed to help us end our exile and connect us to the highest levels, allowing us to tap into and share the pure and powerful energy of Binah.

Then when the 3 shakings per direction are considered over the full 7 days, there are 210 x 3 or 630 total shakings in the 7 days. 630 is 10 x 63, the value of the Tetragrammaton in the aspect of Binah. The number 10 always corresponds to the 10 sefirot (dimensions), and in this case to the 10 sub-dimensions (inner sefirot) within Binah. During the entire process of Sukkot, we’re drawing down the energy from Yesod of Ima (Binah) so we see how the overall Binah connections are very fitting and part and parcel to the technology involved in the shakings.

For these reasons it is very important to do the full 7 day cycle of shakings, and even though we do not physically handle the lulov and etrog on Shabbat, we should go through the motions and meditations as if we were.  This is what Rav Berg of blessed memory did and we diligently went through each one of the mock shakings with their associated kavonot. This is what I suggest you do as well. It is 5778; it is time to utilize ALL of the technology available to us.

More important, is to do the shakings in a sukkah. Technically they can be done anywhere, though the technology was designed to work inside the sukkah. Your car’s engine will work whether it is in your car or not, but you will not get very far unless it is.

Over the 7 days of Sukkot, we are making 70 sacrifices to share the energy with the 70 nations of the world. Each of these sacrifices corresponds to a specific one of the 70 sub-sefirot that comprise Zeir Anpin and Malchut in order as we descend through them during the 7 day period.

The 4 Species

When you assemble your 4 species, also known in some parts as light swords, you should note that the 4 elements correspond to the 4 letters of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה): Hadas (י), Aravah (ה), lulav (ו) and Etrog (ה). The Arizal further explains that the 3 branches of the hadasim (myrtle) also correspond to the (יוד) of the Holy Name and to the sefirot of Chesed-Gevurah-Tiferet. The 2 willow (aravot) branches correspond to the (הה) of the Holy Name and to the sefirot of Netzach and Hod. The lulav corresponds to the (וו) of the Holy Name and to the sefirot of Yesod, while the Etrog (Citron) corresponds to the final (הה) of the Holy Name and to the sefirot of Malchut of Yesod. You should repeat these connections in your head often as your prepare for each set of shakings in order to align your antennae just right.

The following connections should be made in your head at least once every day of the holiday–the more often the better–in order to orient yourself and prime all the elements of your tools. For maximum effect do the Ana B’koach and the Shema in the sukkah each day.

So since the numerical values of Hadas and Aravah together equal 346 (שמו), and since those two species correspond to (יה), they spell out  “The Name YH(יה שמו).” The three sides of the sukkah itself form the shape of the letter Bet (ב), completing the B’Y-H ShMV (ביה–שמו) sequence that comprise the specific 6 letters that occur at the top of the 248 columns of the Torah which are specifically not the letter vav(ו) and whose numerical value collectively is that of H’Moshiach (the Messiah).

As for the lulov, it can be said that the word lulav (לולב) represents the entire Torah in two different ways since it begins with (ל) and ends in (ב)  and since it also ends in the letter combination Lamed-Bet (לב), as in the first (ב) and last (ל) letters of the Torah. This letter reversal is an allusion to the recycling of the Torah that occurs during this period, when we read the last verse of the Torah and immediately twist it back to the beginning and read from Bereshit.

While the numerical value Hadas and lulov together (68+69) equals 137, the numerical value of kabbalah, meaning “to receive” and “parallel,” the numerical value of Hadas (הדס) and Aravah (ערבה) and lulov (לולב) together equals 414, which is twice the numerical value of Or, light,  2 x 207, thus representing the running and returning light.

As for the 4th species, the etrog (אֶתְרוֹג) has the numerical value 610, as in parnesa (sustenance) and ma’aser (tithing), and their corresponding kabbalistic meditations for drawing the Shefa into our lives.  This numerical connection makes logical sense, considering that the Etrog corresponds to the malchut of yesod, the place where we earn our parnesa (sustenance).

Nevertheless, the total value of the 4 species (610+277+68+69) is 1024, which not only matches the 1024 unique word values in the Torah, but is also 32², as in the 32 Paths of the Tree-of-Life. It is also representative of the number of vertices (points) on a 10-dimensional hypercube, which encompasses all 10 dimensions of the Tree-of-Life.  In simpler terms, the 4 species combined connect us to the 1024 portals of the Torah as they exist in the spiritual hyperspace (Binah).  Moreover, not coincidentally 32 x 32 cubits is the measure of the Holy Alter in the center of the courtyards of the Third Holy Temple.

Fortunately, this connection to the 1024 portals happens for us automatically once we incorporate that understanding into the consciousness of our shakings. To fulfill our responsibility of sharing the light with the 70 nations we can connect to the 4 final letters (בסהג) of the names of the 4 species, as they add up to 70.

These connections that have existed as is for 3330 years are all the more imperative since the 4th exile is supposed to end 70 years after Israel became a nation in 1948 (5708), which would be this year, 5778 (2018 CE).

Given the importance of the sharing of the light with the 70 nations at the end of the 70th year, the letter Ayin (ע) with the numerical value 70 stands out as the 16th letter of the Hebrew alphabet, so it is not coincidental that there are 16 letters in the names of the 4 species. The sum of the ordinal value of those 16 letters is 151, as in the value of the Name, Ehyeh (אהיה) spelled out (אלפ–הה–יוד–הה) which is the Name of G-d that it is at the level of Binah from where we are drawing down the energy through the 4 species. I highly suggest you use a kabbalistic siddur (prayer book) for doing the shakings in order to make the proper, purest, and highest connections. The proper connections to the Names for the 6 directions can be found in the Daily Zohar. It is complicated technology and when we are going through the repeated circuits of the shakings we become one with the mechanism. The tools cannot do the job alone though. The process needs us to manually do the movements and make the right visual connections to the associated Names of G-d; everything else is divinely driven.

Moreover, the sum of the ordinal value of the letters in lulav is 32, as in the numerical value of the letters Lamed and Bet (לב), which spells Lev, the Hebrew word for heart. This is another connection to the 32 paths of Wisdom, which is in essence the Tree-of-life (Etz Chaim), as represented on Sukkot by the lulav, whose standard gematria value is 68, which as we noted earlier is that of chaim (life).

We mentioned earlier that the Alter in the very center of the Courtyards of the Third Holy Temple is 32 x 32 cubits. Since the Inner Courtyard measure 100 x 100 cubits, the distance from the Alter to the edge of the Inner Courtyard is 68 cubits on all sides.  So when stand in our sukkahs doing the shakings, we can connect to and imagine that we are at the central Alter in the Third Holy Temple and extending our lulavs outward, metaphorically and metaphysically, to the boundaries of the Inner Courtyard.  The Third Holy Temple is already here spiritually and the more we connect to it the quicker it will be here physically.

The complete gematria value of the word Lulav (לולב) is 68 + 32 = 100, which is also the value of sach (סככ), the roof (covering) of the Sukkah, an extremely important component in the Sukkot technology. The sach represents keter, the highest sefira, and is evocative of the height of the Third Holy Temple, 100 cubits.

So when we shake the Lulav we not only want to bring it back to our heart, but we want to mediate on the light and love channeling back and forth through it, as we stand both in our succahs and in the center of the Third Temple, channeling for the entire world.

Now, if we add all the elements of the holiday together, we get 100 (Sach) + 91 (sukkah) + 1024 (4 species) = 1215, which as we discussed in our previous article is the numerical value of “70 Languages,” and therefore representative of the 70 Nations that sit on the branches of the Tree-of-Life waiting to be watered from our connections. Like the first 4 words of the Shema, the complete value of the first 9 letters of the Torah is also 1215, as are the 11 unique letters in the Torah’s first verse.

In the portion of the Torah read just prior to Sukkot, there are 11 extraneous dots over the letters, a phenomenon that occurs 10 times in the Torah. Now, while the last of those 11 letters in the words under the 11 dots is the letter ayin, with a value of 70, the complete value (standard and ordinal) of all 11 letters under the dots is 422, which is the exact numerical value of the word “seventy (70).” These, of course, connect to the destruction of the first Two Holy Temples in –422 BCE and in 70 CE, respectively, as has already been detailed and chronicled in The Divine Calendar.

Once again, it is our responsibility to mediate on sharing this light with the 70 Nations, and this is why we were blessed to be the channels and given these magnificent divine tools to use. As it says in Isaiah 56:7, ” I will bring them to My holy Mountain and make them rejoice in My House of Prayer…For My House will be called the House of Prayer for all the nations.”

These self-same 70 Nations are gathering this year to attack Israel, as the Zohar prophesied nearly 2000 years ago. Every manufactured twist in the world tension brings the world closer to global war and mayhem, yet by fulfilling our G-d given role, we can inject enough Binah consciousness into the world, and have mercy rain down instead.

Sukkot is usually the time of joy, when the energy of rejoicing is drawn down upon us by our actions within the succah for the entire year. This year, it is the time of action, when what we do has the power to determine the sake of humanity. Evil and its conduit, the Erev Rav are running rampant throughout the world. Physically, it may be too late; spiritually, we have the tools we need to triumph.  This Sukkot, let us put joy in our hearts; let us stand at the Alter of the Holy Temple as we stand within our sukkahs; let us use the gyrating wand of the 4 species to channel the energy of Binah into our lives and out to the whole world; and let us bring Moshiach consciousness to the world once and for all.

5778 Is Upon Us

The year 5778 is finally upon us and the entire world has been witnessing the changes over the past year with the ominous signs recognizable to all.  For 5778 years the Earth has been circling the Sun at 66,600 miles per hour, or 107,000 kilometers per hour if you use that system.  Most people will recognize 666 as an apocalyptic sign but be that as it may, it is also a deep Kabbalistic concept and the numerical value of 2/3. Rav Ashlag of blessed memory used that principle to determine the year of 5778 as the time of the geula (final redemption), and the Arizal hinted at its use to determine a specific date within the year 5778.  Equally significant is that the sum of the integers from 1 to 107 is also 5778 and that there are 107,000 letters in the Torah preceding the 10 Commandments, which were given in the 70th Chapter in the Torah, but that has already been written.

Since the beginning of consciousness, the biblical birth of Adam, the Earth has been hurtling through space at 66,600 miles per hour, and when it traveled exactly 1,666,666,666,666 miles, King David was born. 35 years later, at the midpoint in David’s 70-year lifespan, in the year 2889 HC, we reached exactly the midpoint to the year 5778.  Let that sink in for a moment, and connect to the journey that began with Adam, paused with David, and brought us to this fateful point in time. The ancient kabbalists told us that ADAM (אדם) stands for Adam-David-Moshiach(א–ד–ם).

After David, the Earth continued its journey and when it traveled a total of 3232323232323.2 miles around the Sun, the United States of America was formed. It was 1776 CE. Then 101010101010.1 miles later, the Earth reached a total of 3333333333333.3 miles and Israel became a nation. The year was 5708(1948 CE). Notably, the Archangel Michael, of gematria 101 is the guardian angel of Israel. This is more significant considering the Biblical and Zoharic prophecies of the 70 nations of the world gathering against Israel in the end-of-days, and the vicious anti-Semitic sentiments orchestrated by the Erev Rav and boiling up all over the world. These prophecies are thousands of years old and are relevant only now as Israel approached 70 years of nationhood.

The Earth continued circling the Sun at 66,600 mph and the planet started to heat up—what we call global warming.  This heating up over the last 70 years brought the average surface temperature of the Earth, to 57.78 degrees, in alignment with that of the surface of the Sun, 5778 K.

The Earth will continue circling the Sun we assume. The question is will we chose to keep riding it, or get off?  Which world will we choose to live in? It is no longer a matter of whether we will choose to go through the gates when they open, but whether they will even open for us. We have been given the tools to make that happen, eyes to see and ears to hear. We will discuss the key tools below and hopefully strengthen your beliefs for without them no tool can help you. After all, our souls have already had 5778 years to decide what they really want.

The Torah scroll is arranged into 42 rows and 248 columns, and all the columns, except for 6 specific ones, begin with the letter Vav (ו) of numerical value 6, as in the 6th millennium when most of the Jewish prophecies called for Moshiach’s arrival.  The number 248 is the numerical value of Abraham(אברהם), whose letters permute to Reah MB (ראה–מב) or “See the 42.” This arrangement of the Torah with its focus on 42, as in 42-Letter Name of G-d, is crucial for us in these final days.

These 6 letters at the heads of their respective columns spell out B’YH Shmo (ביה–שמו) and they have the numerical value 363 along with an ordinal value of 57. Both these values are the exact same as H’Moshiach (המשיח), the Messiah. Neither the Torah, nor G-d’s messages in it are mbiguous.  What matters is if we are ready to receive them. If the other 242 columns seem to point to H’Moshiach it must be noted that they can also represent the 242 years from when the 13 colonies of the United States became a nation in 1776 CE to the year 2018 CE (5778), this year. The complete gematria value of B’YH Shmo is thus 363 plus 57 or 422 when The Divine Calendarthe kolel of 2 is added for the 2 parts of the equation, and as noted in The Divine Calendar, 422 is the numerical value of the word for 70, specifically as in 70 CE when the Second Holy Temple was destroyed.  We make this connection because the year -422 BCE is also when the First Holy Temple was destroyed, in 3338 HC, and because 5778 x .5778 = 3338.  There are no coincidences, only choices. The divine intent is unambiguous. We were given eyes to see; what we choose to look at is our choice, and ours alone. In truth, we judge only ourselves. Our fate is entirely dependent on the choices we make. Hopefully, the revelations herein enclosed will make those choices clearer.

Just before Rosh Chodesh Elul this year, when the final month of teshuva (repentance) began before 5778, the moon equaled the Sun and a 70-mile wide swath of darkness divided the United States in two. Thanks to the pervasive efforts of the Even Rav, the US has become the most divided, divisive place on the planet, split in two, literally and figuratively.  This occurrence, witnessed by millions, fulfills the prophecy based on the Zohar that in the days of Mashiach the moon (malchut) would equal the Sun (Zeir Anpin) and so it has, for a few hours at least, when the entire country, so recently fixated on hatred and anarchy, focused on the darkness and cheered.  That dark band divided the country into North and South for the second time in US history.  More recently, the South has been under siege and not just from those anarchistic forces of evil who are pulling down all symbols of its past, but by powerful elements of nature (Elohim). Three very powerful and unprecedented hurricanes surged forth from the Atlantic, whose initials in Hebrew (חיה) spelled (Chayah), or beast in English.  The gematria of Harvey (הרוי) is that of the Hebrew word “the judgement” and the gematria of Irma (יארמה) is that of “from judgement” while that of Jose (חוזה) is the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).  The letters of Irma and Harvey permute to spell in Hebrew “the ten curses,” while the letters in Jose count down 8…7…6…5. And then there was Maria…

We should pray for G-d’s will to be done mercifully and for mankind to suddenly awaken before it is too late. This window in time will be temporary and we need to take advantage of it while we can.

This year, 5778, we complete 66.6 jubilee years since the giving of the Torah at My Sinai, which was the last opportunity we had for Moshiach consciousness in our world, the last time we touched Binah, a state of immortality and instate understanding. That time, we collectively rejected it. Binah is a spiritual sea where everything is instantaneously connected and these connections are openly understood by all who ride upon it.  The Earth has traveled a great distance in those 3330 years and G-d has expended great efforts on our behalf to align the worlds for us for the 3rd and possibly final time, at least for us.   The Zohar indicates that we needed to reach a critical mass of like and positive consciousness of 600,000 souls.  Alternately because of the two Shins (שש) of numerical value 300 each on the tefillin, we would have needed 100 minyanim with like and positive consciousness praying for Moshiach/ Binah consciousness and the unification of the Shechinah with Hashem. Instead, the majority of the population, including far too many Jews, have unwittingly succumbed to the negative influence of the Erev Rav, just as they did 3330 years ago with the golden calf.  These are the same people working so hard to divide the United States in two and create World War III.  So where does that leave us?

Barring a sudden shift in the common consciousness, we must make our  connections individually, and prepare ourselves to receive the gates . Besides the normal prayers, and besides studying Zohar as much as possible, there are three connections that can bring us closer to the docks of unification and help prepare our sails for the winds of Binah that soon approach. Caution though: nothing can prepare us for what is to come if we choose to ground ourselves in the lower world of malchut. That is the first choice we must make.  We have to want Moshiach and enlightenment over physicality and we have to want it with all our hearts, not as a hedge to our bets.  Before children reach the age of 5 they see many wondrous and scary things that we cannot. It is because they believe. If we do not believe something is not possible it will not be possible. It is as simple as that. If you want to connect to the spiritual realm you must first believe—truly believe—that it exists. Our eyes see what we let them see.  The Kabbalists describe our world as the world of illusion and Satan as the master illusionist.

The three places of intense connection to the spiritual realm, and specifically to Binah, are the Torah’s first verse of gematria 2701; the 42-Letter Name of G-d that stems from that verse, of gematria 3701, and the 1000 letters of the Shema that bridge the 1000 value gap between them, the 1000 chambers of Moshiach.  We have written about the Torah’s first verse and the 42-Letter Name extensively and will add even deeper connections for them soon. Today, it is imperative we bring out a deeper understanding of the Shema for everyone.  In this I am fulfilling a promise to Rav Brandwein of blessed memory to publish this enlightenment for the whole world.  This article is not meant to be a comprehensive analysis or explanation about the Shema prayer, which would fill volumes; it is meant to illuminate numerous highlights of the prayer have been previously concealed from the average student and are only now being revealed because the darkness of our days necessitates it.

So why 1000? Kabbalistically, and as a matter of counting, 1000 represents completion, just as in the complete Tree-of-Life that has 10 sefirot (dimensions) subdivided into 10 sub-sefirot and those in turn into 10 additional sub-sefirot or 10 x 10 x 10. Notably, when we descend these dimensions by 10% each iteration, 1000 units requires 22 diminutions of 10% each to get to 100, as in the 22 Hebrew Letters, or as Abraham described them in the Sefer Yetzirah, the 22 cubic building blocks, and also as in the 22 paths that connect the sefirot in the Tree-of-Life.  Please note the science used by the ancient kabblaists may have been divinely given but it is no less accurate or precise than our modern physics, which also divides our existence into 10 dimensions.

Therefore, there are 66 iterations in total when diminishing the light of 1000 to 100 to 10 to 1. The symmetry aside, those 1000 are as One (1) in that the Hebrew word for 1000 is elef (אלפ), which is exactly the same as alef (אלפ), the first Hebrew letter, of numerical value 1 (one).  In short, the alef (א) is Binah, a primordial existence that preceded the Bet of Bereshit in the Torah.  As a completeness, 1000 is also the end since Ketz (קץ), meaning “the end” of numerical value 1000, and spelled with the initials of North Korea in Hebrew (צפון–קראה).

First, it must be explained that we inhabit a 3-dimensional world and that as the Zohar enlightens, the most basic shape in our world is the cube, which is why the 1000 letters of the Shema form a cube of 10 by 10 by 10, or 103.  When that cube expands to connect with the 50 gates of Binah in the 4th dimension it forms a hypercube, which because of math and physics has 42 faces and 72 vertices and 72 edges.  This is why the 4 paragraphs of the Shema have 50 letters in first 2 verses, 42 words in the first paragraph, 72 words in the second, 50 words in the third, and 72 in the fourth.  This is hard to visualize and we need not be able to do it. We should, though, connect the 42 words and the 72 words to 42-Letter Name and 72 Triplet Names of G-d respectively, and we should use the entire prayer to elevate our consciousness toward Binah. Each Name and letter is a portal or port in the sea of Binah.  It is not a coincidence that Sea, Yam (ים) has the numerical value of 50, just as it is no coincidence that there are 50 years in a jubilee year, which we were told to start counting exactly 3330 years ago. This time we are all captains of our own ships, and if we do not unfurl our sails in time no one will do it for us.

What is described above in 4-dimensions is what our sails look like unfurled. It is invisible to us at the moment, yet we can and should use the Shema in its condensed 4 paragraph form which we can see in order to harness all that spiritual energy and open ourselves up to that spiritual existence beyond.    See with your eyes and hear with your ears.  See the MB (42-Letter Name). Hear the Shema,

The Zohar in Ki Tetze further explains that in the end of days, we will strike, Samuel, the evil minister of the Erev Rav 50 times, corresponding to the ordinal value in the 3 letters of the first word in the shema (שמע) and that we would strike out the wickedness from within us at the limit of 39 times, as in the value and also the ordinal value of the last two words (אחד  יהוה) of that same first verse of the shema. The Zohar relates those 50 strikings (beatings) of Samuel to the 50 letters in that verse combined with the silent Baruch Shem verse that follows it.  When we recite the Shema with the right intentions we can beat away our accumulated negative klippot that block out the light that G-d so wants us to receive.  This is a precious gift given that our world is so thick with negativity. We need to use it, not forsake it.

The same Zohar passage continues explaining that Adam, Eve, the serpent, and the land each received 10 strikes.  This is akin to the four letter Yuds(י) in the four central words of the Shema’s first verse

(יהוה אלהינו  יהוה ישראל ) with each of the 4 (ד) letters Yud(י) having the numerical value of 10. Indeed, like the mezuzot on our doorposts, the Name of protection, Shadai (שדי) is embedded in that verse.

שדי

We should keep all this in mind every time we do the Shema, along with the fact that the first and last words of that verse (שמע) and (אחד) together have the numerical value of 424, Moshiach Ben David.  As the Erev Rav does everything in their vast powers to prevent this unification we must unify ourselves by making these selfless connections in the name of bringing Moshiach Ben David into our world, which is why G-d placed these connections with the Shema, the prayer of unification.

G-d hid even more treasures for us within this first verse.  The first four words of the Shema (אלהינו יהוה ישראל שמע) have the complete gematria value of 1215, which we know from Rav Abulafia is that of “70 Nations” and “permutation of the letters.”  It is also the value of the word Tikune (karma) and of Va-etchanan, the key word that indicates how many times Moses beseeched G-d to let him enter the Promised Land and thus end our Tikune and bring about Binah. Normally, Va-etchanan is considered without its sofit value and thus only 515, representative of tefila (prayer) and the 515 hours from Rosh Hashannah to Hoshannah Raba.  Many of the tzaddikim today think this Hoshannah Raba marks the time of the profound shift.  When concentrating on the first four words of the Shema (אלהינו יהוה ישראל שמע) we too are beseeching G-d to help us overcome our tikkune and our global tikkune, using the Hebrew letters to unite us as channels for the 70 nations of the world.  This is also one of the reasons the word Shema שמע is written in the Torah with an enlarged letter Ayin (ע) of numerical value 70. We know from the Zohar that all the enlarged letters in the Torah connect us to Binah, including the enlarged dalet (ד) of echad (אחד) that the Zohar instructs us to elongate its pronunciation significantly as we mediate on the 4 exiles merging into one and ending now with Moshiach Ben David.

G-d always builds redundancy into everything that is important to us because it is known that we are stiff necked and need to see things repeatedly before we realize things are not coincidental. That is why we did not get it the first time and were thrown out of Gan Eden. That is why we did not get it the second time, and rejected G-d’s voice on the eve of the 50th Gate in 2448, after 49 jubilee years. That is why it has taken 66.6 more jubilee years to prepare us.  The milui or spelled out value of the two letters Ayin (ע) and dalet (ד) plus the kolel of 1 for their unification is also 1215.

The Zohar explains that Moses was the Sun and he set into the stillness of the night to let Joshua shine as the Moon. It further explains that in the end of days, Moses, as the Sun, will rise to help redeem us.  With the sign of the eclipse, the Sun regains its rightful place.  Rabbi Shimon tells us that Moses is the Leviathan that swims in the Sea of Binah. The first four words of the Shema also equal the value of Leviathan (לויתן) and the first 4 letters of Leviathan (לויתן) have an ordinal value of 50. During this profound connection, part of our kavanot should be to meditate on linking our consciousness with Moses, the Leviathan that swims in the Sea, represented by the 50 letters of the unified Shema and Baruch Shem, Zeir Anpin with Malchut.

The final two words of the first verse (אחד  יהוה) have the complete gematria of 78, which as Rav Brandwein explained to me many years ago is symbolized in the initials of Etz Chaim (עץ–חיים), the Tree-of-Life, the consciousness of which we have the ability to achieve this year, in 5778, when the Gates will open for us for the first time in 3330 years. Those two words (אחד  יהוה) Meaning G-d is One echo throughout the next 4 paragraphs.  The Zohar explains that the letter Vav (ו) of numerical value 6 represents Zeir Anpin and the expansion of space in 6 directions, which is why there are 6 letters in each line of the 42-Letter Name matrix.  In the 50 letters of the first verse and Baruch Shem of the Shema there is only 1 word beginning with the letter Vav (ו), V’ed (ועד). There are 13 words beginning with Vav (ו) out of the 42 words of the Shema’s first paragraph, and there are 42 words beginning with Vav (ו) in the Shema’s remaining 3 paragraphs.  Within the limitless technology built into the cubic Shema matrix, we have been given a formula of 1 – 13 – 42 to help unify us with G-d. Echad (אחד), One – Ahava (אהבה), love and Echad, One (אחד), each being of numerical value 13 – and the 42-Letter Name of G-d, the understanding of which Rav Brandwein explained would bring about the Geula (final redemption).

1 – 13 – 42

There are 599,592 or (600,000408) component letters in the Torah and the first word of the Shema’s four paragraphs, V’ahavta (ואהבת)meaning “and you shall love” has the numerical value of 408 with the prefix (ו). Moreover, 408 times 6, the numerical value of the letter Vav (ו) is 2448, the year the Torah was given to Moses, 3330 years ago, the last time the Tree-of-life reality was available to us. The message is clear: Love is the missing link; love and a desire for oneness with the Creator is what will overcome the hatred being spread by the Erev Rav and their ministering serpent throughout the world; love is what will unite us and connect us to Binah.  The four words that head up each of the 4 paragraphs, without their letter vav(ו) prefixes add up to 2019, the time when the window closes, and the upper and lower worlds will have separated once again. Being the beginning of the era of Binah, it is a time beyond the Zeir Anpin (ו).  Including the first verse, the 5 initial words of the 5 paragraphs the kolel add up to 2448, as in the year 2448, which was the last time that unity existed, albeit briefly.

The year 2448 was the time that 600,000 Jewish souls stood as One before G-d. Is it odd then, unbelievable perhaps, that the Log of 600,000 is 5.778Or that One over those 600,000 souls divided by the 70 members of Jacob’s family who entered Egypt, divided by the 12 tribes, divided by the 3 Patriarchs equals exactly 42.  This equation was given to us by the Arizal and shows us why the 42-Letter Name, also known as the Ana B’koach, is embedded into the Torah’s first verse: its power to unify us.

1/(600,000/70/12/3) = 42

 

In VaEtchanan, just prior to the giving of the 10 Commandments and the verses of Shema Ysrael…, in Devarim 4:40 Moses states, “…Then you will endure a long time in the land that God your Lord is giving you for all time(כל–הימים) ,” and in the words “All time,” literally “all the days” we have kol(כל) with the numerical value of 50 and H’yamim (הימים) with the value of 666 including the kolel, which reveals to us once again the equation 50 x 66.6 = 3330 years.  Moses begins the verse with, “I am presenting to you today, so that He will be good to you and your children after you. Then you will endure for a long time in the land that God…” This phrase within the verse has the numerical value 5777, and is only one of 13 phrases in the Torah with that value.  As we know, the number 13 is the value of ahava (love) and Echad (one) and what we desperately need to cling to in these days.  It has been hinted at in so many ways how to count the days, all of them, and the years until Moshiach.

It is not just any love we need to embrace; it is unconditional love. The first paragraph of the Shema, the one with 42 words, begins with the letter Vav(ו) and ends with the letter Caf(כ), as do all 5 verses in this paragraph, as do the first 21 words in the paragraph and the second 21 words in the paragraph, as does the final word and 3 other words. The letter combination Vav-Caf(וך) is easily recognizable as that of 26 and the Tetragrammaton (יהוה), though arranged with the Caf(כ) in the sofit (final) position, its more appropriate value would be 506, which is not only the value of the first line of the 42-Letter Name matrix, but it is also the value of the words for unconditional love (Love for no reason) and it is the complete gematria value for Moshiach Ben David. And as mentioned in The Genesis Prayer, the 14 triplets in the 42-Letter Name are found exactly 506 times in the Torah. With the addition of one word that begins with Vav-Caf (וכ) there are 13 instances of this connection to unconditional love and Moshiach Ben David in the paragraph of 42. Do we really need any more redundancy? Can the message and equation 1 – 13 – 42 be any clearer? When the signs and the times get darker and people ask where is G-d, we must ask ourselves could He have tried to help us anymore, given us any simpler tools to connect with what is truly important: Love – Moshiach – Unity? If we are going to say the Shema twice a day, at least we should say it with the right intentions. If we are going to say the Ana B’koach within our prayers, at least let it elevate them properly. If you want an arrow to hit its target you must aim it—there is no other way. For 3330 years most of us have been releasing our arrows in empty fields.

To help us bring the unifying power of the Shema into our souls and the healing power of the Shema into our bodies we were given the 23 verses of the Shema, whose initials total 432, as in the 432 Hz frequency of Binah, which is the sum of two basic cubes of 63, which is simply the 2-dimensional or straight line Vav(ו) cubed, but we have covered that in previously articles. Moreover, it cannot be coincidental that the Earth circles the Sun at 66,600 mph and the cube of 6 x 6 x 6, which according to the Ramchal is equivalent to 1 Biblical cubit cubed, is the basic unit of space in our world. Nor is it coincidental that there are 216 or 6 x 6 x 6 letters in the 72 Names of G-d, which are derived from the 3 verses where the Red Sea parted. To stretch that thought, the two hurricanes that made landfall so devastatingly were both connected numerically to Gevurah (Judgement) through 216.  While 6x6x6 is 216, the equation 6+6+6 is 18, and when we raise Phi, the primordial constant that controls the spiraling growth in our universe to the power of 18, we get phi18 equals 5778.000

You may ask why it is important to tune into this exact frequency of 216 x 2 or more specifically, 432 Hz; after all, your cell phone works whether you understand the technology or not. The questions really are whether you want 1 bar or 4, 3G or 4G, static and dropped calls, or a clear channel to the upper world.

Like the 23 words in the Blessing of the Cohenim, these 23 verses align with the 23 chromosome pairs in our DNA in the same way that the 206 words of the Shema that are not in the first paragraph of 42, align with the 206 bones in our bodies. Another way we can tune into the 432 Hz frequency of Binah is when we recite blessings. We start most blessings with the word Baruch (blessed), whose sofit value is 708, as in the value of 42-Letters in the fully iterated Upper 42-Letter Name of G-d, the station hub above for clearing all the prayers and messages.  As the Arizal explains, no prayers get processed with the 42-Letter Names.  It is not coincidental the Israel became a nation in 5708. We follow Baruch with Atah Adonai (אתה–יהוה) whose numerical is 432.  Thus, with each blessing (ברוך‐אתה–יהוה) that we say, or that we say Amen to, we can connect directly and clearly to the spiritual Sea of Binah.

And speaking of Israel, the 6 words of the Shema’s first verse in normal gematria sum to 577 plus 541, the numerical value of the 2nd word in the verse, Israel, while the initials of all 6 letters with the kolel equal 333, as in the 3330 years to 5778, when Israel becomes 70 (ע) and the 4th (ד) exile ends. The final letters add up to 120, as in the lifespan of Moses, the redeemer. Once decoded by simple gematria, it is quite a story this verse is telling us, yet it means nothing if we do not listen to the message, which is why the verse states “Shema Ysrael (Hear O Israel…).” Many of us say the Shema two, three times a day, yet are we listening?

As the Earth circles the Sun at 66,600 for the last year in this era, we conclude the Shema prayer with its final word, “your G-d (אלהיכם)” of numerical value 666, and what do the four final letters of the four final words of the Shema sum to: 1215.  Eleichem (אלהיכם) has a complete gematria of 729, which is quite fitting for the last 6 letters of the 10 x 10 x 10 cube we call the Shema since 729 is 9³ or a cube of 9 x 9 x 9. The number 729 is also the value of the 2nd line of the 42-Letter Name(קרעשטן), which spells kara Satan or “tear out Satan,” the evil within us and amongst us, not a bad idea if we want to connect with Binah consciousness this year.

The Zohar describes the expansion of space from zero(0) dimensions to One (1) dimension, represented by the (vowel) point and by the Yud (י), and then the second dimension is the line, or Vav(ו). In the 3rd dimension the Vav(ו) expands to 6³ or 216 and the Yud (י) expands to 10³ or 1000. Together they add up to 1216, which is 1215 including the kolel of 1.  If we were to add + 10³ + 9³ plus 3 for the 3 components we would get 1948, as in the year Abraham was born (1948 HC) and as in the year Israel became a nation, 1948 CE (5708).  There is a definite structure to our universe, including our physical universe. Our space is ordered and defined and so is our time.

Rosh HaShannah is upon on, and the Arizal teaches us that this second line of the 42-Letter Name(קרעשטן) is the crucial element in the kavanot of the Shofar blowings.  Jews and like-minded souls of all degrees of faith and denominations will be praying at the same time.  Let us use our new knowledge to synchronize our prayers in unity for the coming of Moshiach and the ability to shift our consciousness from our physical world and desires to that of Binah, the World to Come.

The 432 Binah Meditation Incorporates the Future Holy Temple

ari2One afternoon almost 17 years ago, a caretaker let me into the 16th century Synagogue of Rabbi Isaac Luria in Sfat and all alone with the painted blue raised bimah behind me, I prayed, meditated, and conversed with the Ari.  With wild birds swirling all around the room, diving, fluttering, their noisy wings churning the silence, I sensed a light emanating from the wall in front of me.  Embracing it, I was lifted upwards, levitated forward, upward, pulled upwards by my head and chest.

It was not the weirdest thing that happened to me in my life, nor even on that trip to Israel, so I took the levitation in stride.  Last week, as I incorporated the 432 Hz healing frequency found tuning forkconcealed within the Torah’s first word into a powerful meditation found in the Zohar, I was once again drawn upwards and levitated toward the light and the visions.  17 years ago, it was the connection to the Arizal.  This past week it was to the Light.  Since it had nothing to do with me personally, and everything to do with specifics of the meditation, it is a connection you can make as easily as I did.

Do you ever feel like there is more out there than meets the eye, or that unseen forces are manipulating the world around you?  It is and they are doing so.  There is a way to tap into those forces.

car-radio_5Do you remember when you had to turn a knob on your car radio to tune it into the right frequency to pick up your favorite radio station, or at least remember seeing them do it in the movies? Do you recall the static when you were only off by a tiny bit? If you carefully tuned that dial to 432 Hz, you would tune right into those forces.  That would be Radio Binah, broadcasting from the primordial Aleph(א) deep in the heart of the universe, which  reveals all the unseen happenings in our universe and all the unheard messages.

Nevertheless, if you are off by the tiniest bit, you get nothing but static and the feeling that you are missing something.  Imagine how easy life would be without that stressful static buzzing all-around us, blocking out what is really important at every given moment of your life.  Some people are much better than the rest of us at tuning into that exact frequency some call “the third eye; they do not need a special antenna or the secret schematics of how to build it. The rest of us, do.  Fortunately, a blueprint of just such an antenna was found reproduced in a 2000 year old book, the Book of Splendor, the Zohar. Several cultures, ancient and modern, have tried to reproduce it in stone and steel, yet the only materials we need are in our heads.

How does it work and what does it have to with the healing we spoke about in our previous article? There are 10 dimensions that comprise the greater universe.  Each one filters 4 bladetree10and channels the energy (Light) downward to the next level below utilizing differing mechanisms and veils.  This is the Tree-of-Life.  Our existence is entirely played out in the lowest of all the dimension.  The next 6 sefirot/dimensions above our lowly level (Malchut) form a ladder to the purely spiritual world where neither time nor space exist in a form that we can understand.  It is a realm that we cannot affect or sully, and ironically, it is known as the Realm of Understanding, Binah.  Think of the dimension of Binah as a huge steady wind, like the one the Torah states separated the walls of water in the Red Sea.  It is an all-encompassing wind, wider than the ocean, the solar system, our galaxy.  It is as wide and broad as the entire universe.  The next highest and even broader realm is Chochma, and the point that separates the two is the primordial Aleph(א).  Spinning like the outstretched arms of a giant turbine, the Aleph(א) funnels down and filters all the energy from the highest realms into a ceaseless and mighty wind.  That wind blows through our universe and lives, cooling the fires of the earthly plane, yet it is all but imperceptible to most of us.

alef two vavsThis  is the wind of Moshiach.  This is the wind we call Light. This is the wind that will levitate us.  It is the wind that must be harnessed if we are to sail away when the time comes.  Once we jettison our anchors and let go of our physical desires, our sailboats will be ready to soar into the enlightenment of the world to come, of the age to come.

None of us can go anywhere, though, unless we first hoist our sails. We have a global and individual responsibility.  Just as I need to jettison my anchors and hoist my sails, so do you.  You need to jettison your anchors and hoist your sails.

Fortunately, the antenna given to us by Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai nearly 2000 years ago unfurls into a beautiful billowing main sail that can catch the maximum wind is just the right way.  We are going to take you step by step through the basic meditation that hoists the main mast and unfurls the needed sails. First you need to understand that while the wind of Binah is constant it is not consistent as we explained in 25th Century Technology. Though wider than an ocean, it flows like a river with eddies, whirlpools and cross currents.  Every thought, jet1word and action we put forth ripples and reverberates throughout the vastness untethered by the limitations of either time or space or the frictions of motion. Eventually it meets up with like-minded thoughts of other people and puddles up in eddies of limiting consciousness and beliefs.  Like a raft spinning in an eddy, there it stays stuck. When our consciousness is in the right place, the like forces it attracts line up behind us, pushing us ever faster forward and upward, lifting us like the concentrated wind beneath the wings of a 747. Like that rising massive jet, the natural forces of Binah allow us to take hundreds of like-minded passengers along for the ride.

When we do this meditation and meditate on healing someone, our thoughts, prayers, and positivity reach not just across the room, but echoe across the universe, across eternity.  The healing we send out gets magnified thousands of times and comes back to us as we get sucked up into the winds. The same happens when we mediate properly on sending out unconditional love, or Moshiach consciousness into the world.

These meditations work best if you can play meditative music tuned to 432 Hz—plenty available on line. If not, you can sing or hum tuned to that frequency, or if you cannot, like me, just imagine 432it—it works just fine.  Your consciousness does the driving, not the radio.  We are going to break down Rabbi Shimon’s blueprints to their simplest form, removing the confusing language about the sefirot and columns.  Believe me, it will be OK—in fact more than OK.  People have already risen from their hospital beds and walked outside for the first time in months from having this meditation done on them just as I am explaining it here.

pointStart by imagining a single point, any dot or period at the end of the sentence will do.  So you know, it is not just any dot, and if you can picture it as the 10 sefirot (dimensions) of Tohu (Nothingness) shattering and collapsing into the center of the primordial Aleph(א), it is even better.  When these 10 were added to the 32 Paths of Wisdom of the Aleph(א), together they became 42, rolled up as One.  To us, it was the beginning, the point at tip of the Big Bang from which all our physicality and spirituality unfolded.  This meditation takes us and connects us to the very first few unfoldings of time, space and motion, when the light was at its most intense and physicality was at its purest, at a time and place before there were any limitations.  Imagine how powerful an antenna would be made from these purest elements and what its reach would be if it was derived from the beginning of the beginning.

Imagine this point inside you. Bring into your core, a central place within your body that feels balanced. If you know breathing techniques use them. See this point expand vavyudinto a single vertical line, tracing through you from your crown to your feet.  This is the letter Vav (ו), the letter of connection. The point and the line work together, they comprise all the Hebrew vowels; they are the Yud (י) and the Vav (ו), collectively representing Keter, the highest point. Given the values of the two end points of the line and line itself, the total value of the line becomes 26, connecting us to the energetic value 26 of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).

memFrom here the line expands into a plane, a flat square drawn around you.  This is represented by the Mem sofit (ם), and together the point, the line and the square plane spell the word Yom יום, or day, where time began. Together they have the gematria of “HaTorah, the Torah.”

Expand the square outward in all directions (front, back, up, down, sideways) until it becomes a stick figure cube that surrounds and encapsulates you.  It is not a solid cube, but one comprised of cubetransparent light.  This cube, like all cubes, has 26 elements (6 faces, 12 edges, and 8 vertices), connecting us again to the value 26 of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).

mhshBegin your selfless meditation in earnest now.  It could be a healing meditation through chanting the EL NA RFA NA LA (אל–נא–רפא–נא–לה), the prayer Moses used to heal his sister, or the by visualizing the MemHeiShin (מהש), the 5th of the 72 Names.  It could a meditation of universal healing and peace, by sending out Unconditional Love, like the love you have for your children or whoever you love the most. Or It could be a meditation to send out the desire to share and spread Moshiach (Binah) consciousness to everyone everywhere.

hypercube1Now imagine a new cube emerging from each of the faces of the original cube with their shared edges and sides joined  together into a hypercube that encapsulates and forms around you.  Each of the 72 edges has a different one of the 72 Names (Triplets) and each of the 42 faces has a different letter of the 42-Letter Name of G-d.  Together they are your antenna and voice to Binah.

In case you were to have any doubts about the relationship between the 6 x 6 x 6 cube and/or the 216 letters in the 72 Names and the 42 letters in the 42 Letter Name, we have only to look at the first two words of the final portion of the 4th Book of the Torah, Numbers (Bamidbar).  It lays out the 42 Journeys of the Israelites.  Eleh Massey (אלה–מסעי), together their value is 216 and their ordinal value is 72.  Together, they will help us collect the 288 fallen Holy sparks of Tohu, reunite it with the primordial Aleph(א) and bring about Moshiach (Binah) Consciousness to our world.  As you know the first words of any portion are the seed level of that portion and they hold and project its secrets.

Project your voice and prayer through them, the 42-Letter Name and the 72 Names placed through the hypercube.  The Arizal told us that no prayer can be elevated without the 42-Letter Name.72 names  Indeed, he said “nothing can be elevated without the 42-Letter Name.  You do not need to place specific Names in specific locations throughout the hypercube.  Meditating on the 72 Name chart and reciting the Ana B’koach (or the 42 Letters) will serve just fine.  The Letters know where to go and will find their proper place on their own.  Put the graphic of the charts here

Bonus Blessing Hidden Within the 42-Letter Name

anabkoach160-ksThere is a bonus inherent in the design of the 42-Letter Name: it auto-tunes to 432 HZ.  When you take the first and last letters of that Name together, they spell (את), the first and last letter of the Hebrew alphabet, the beginning and the end.  Together they have an ordinal value of 23, the same as the first 3 letters of the Torah and they have a standard value of 401, together that makes 401 + 23 = 424, the energetic value of Moshiach Ben David.

Now, if you recall the first and last words of the Torah בראשית ישראל that gave us the 432 HZ healing frequency sandwiched in the blessings (אשרי) (בלת) (אשרי), well the word before those two words is Kol (כל) and the word after those two is Bara (ברא), each of whom have the ordinal value of 23.  When you couple that with the total of all the letters’ values through the 23rd letter (ך) of the alphabet being 2018, we get an idea what all the meditations are designed to bring us and when they will all come to fruition (2018 CE, 5778 HC). After all, it was in 2018 HC, that G-d made a covenant with Abraham to make us endless.

Nonetheless, the next two letters after the Aleph (א) and before the Tav (ת) in the 42-Letter Name are (בי) and when they are spelled out (Beit Yud) they represent “House of Israel” or ” House of Hashem” and total 412 + 20 = 432.

All this and all these connection play out for you.  Without you having to do nothing more that recite the Ana B’koach and concentrate in the 42 letters.  G-d has made it so very easy for us.  The next two letters in the sequence (גצ) add up to 903, which is the sum of the integers from 1-42 while the following sequence (יו) when spelled out also equals 42, and the next two (תק), have a complete value of 541, that of Israel.  It is a technology we do not need to understand.  We just need to know that when it is engaged by our consciousness it can elevate us and our meditations to the level of Yetzirah (Creation) where the winds of Binah blow much stronger.

Now picture your prayers soaring outward in all direction, filling your room, building, city, country, world, solar system, the universe– with the radiant white light of unconditional love.  Know that your thoughts are reaching the outer edges of eternity and the winds of Binah are filling your unfurled 4-dimensional sails.  When you are ready to let go, you will soar, you will be free to do more good.

There will come a time soon enough when jettisoning those anchors and leaving the baggage behind will be easier.  It will be like a flip in the poles, when momentarily the magnets to physicality will be turned off.  The more practiced you are in hoisting your masts, unfurling your sails and catching the winds of Binah, the easier it will be for you.

The Future Holy Temple

When we do the above mediation we are mimicking the process of the soon-to-manifest Future Holy Temple.  According to the Ramchal, the Future Holy Temple is laid out as a grid of 9 squares SecretsFHTlike a tic-tac-toe board, each exactly 100 cubits square (1002) and in the center of this grid is the Altar of 32 cubits square(322).  Look closely and you will see this exact pattern found in the center of the outlined hyper-cube illustrated above. Surrounding the 300 by 300 cubit grid is the 3000 by 3000 cubit Temple Mount. The edifice of the Holy of Holies Sanctuary is a perfect 100 by 100 by 100 cube located in the central Western quadrant of the grid and it is entered from the inner, central courtyard. This pattern is somewhat mimicked in our meditation of a square expanding to a cube.

FHT1The 7 giant gates of the Holy Temple each measure 50 cubits in height and 10 in width for a surface area of 50 x 10 = 500, representing the final Caf (ך), the 23rd letter in the Hebrew alphabet, which has a numerical value 500.  This is the 23rd letter in the Alphabet and the sum of all the letters preceding and including the final Caf (ך) plus the kolel for the 23 letters is 2018.  The height of 50 cubits connects each gate to the level of Binah as in the “50 Gates of Binah” and the 7 Gates mimic the 7 cubes of the hypercube in our meditation (1 original and 6 expanded ones).

According to the Arizal, “there is an angel of prayer, who elevates our prayers from the earth to heaven this being a journey of 500 years.”  Each of those 7 gates are built into walls that are 6 whitestone2cubits wide, just like the structure of the 42-Letter Name matrix (7 lines of 6 letters each). In total, the 7 gates represent taking 42 steps (or journeys) until we enter the Holy Sanctuary.  Each ancient Holy cubit is 27.5 inches and our modern step (or stride) is 26.019 inches on average, coinciding with the value (26) of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).  If the 7 Gates were linked together physically they would form a tunnel 42 cubits in length and each step would cross another plane of increasing enlightenment, a separate journey of your soul.  If you want to expand your mediation above, you can slowly picture each face of the 42 faces of the hypercube with the 42-Letters in sequence and picture yourself and your soul’s journey moving forward with each one.  As you expand your enlightenment, keep in mind the global purpose that you are helping to manifest the Holy Temple on earth, you are opening up the 7 Gates for everyone.

Each plane is a supplication.  The Arizal explained that Moses used the word vaetchanan (ואתחנן), meaning  “I supplicate,” to describe his prayers with which to enter the promised land and thusly  bringing  about the Final Redemption (Geulah).  The value of vaetchanan is 515 or the 500 years journey plus the Yud (י) and the Hei (ה) that got him there.  Since Moses already knew the entire Bible story and our story by then, he knew the outcome of those prayers yet made them anyway to empower us as we go through the process and the Gates.  Each gate represents the 500 square cubit plane, the Yud (י) width (10) times the Hei (ה) of Binah height (5), 515 in total. When we add the Vav (ו) depth of the wall (6), we find that each gate is defined by the יהו just like the meditations of the shaking of the Lulav on Sukkot, in which the Arizal instructs us to connect the 6 permutations (יהו יוה והי והי הוי היו) of the (יהו) with the 6 dimensions of a cube.  The final Hei (ה) to complete the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) is found in the 5 (ה) similarly designed Gates of the Temple Mount’s outer wall.

If we were to add the 6 cubit depth to the 500 square cubit plane of each Gate, they would each equal 506. This is explained in The Genesis Prayer.  It  is the value of the first line (אבגיתץ) of the genesis prayer cover42-Letter Name, and of its last 4 letters (וצית) and also the 4 letters before those (קשקו).  506 is also the numerical value of “unconditional love” and is the complete value of “Moshiach Ben David,” the two most important elements of our consciousness we have to have in mind when doing the above meditations. Furthermore, the 42-Letter Name when divided into the 14 triplets are collectively found 506 times in the Torah.

unusual-strange-clouds-8-1The 7 Gates, each 6 cubits in depth obviously correspond with the 7 levels of the 42-Letter Name matrix, and the shape of these Gates, 50 cubits high by 10 wide is not coincidentally reminiscent of an elevator shaft because that is what they are.  They elevate us up to Binah of each of the 7 levels from Malchut, Yesod, Hod, Netzach, Tiferet, Gevurah and Chesed of Zeir Anpin, just like the 7 Clouds of Glory we connect with on Sukkot.

As it happens, each Gate has a volume of 10 x 50 x 6 or 3000, not only mimicking the Temple Mounts 3000 cubit x 3000 cubit design, but the total of the 7 Gates is thus 7 x 3000 = 21,000 cubits3, or יהו once again.

By the way, 21,000 times the length of the cubit, 27.5 inches is 577,500 inches and while 5778 is purposely 3 years shy of 5778 HC, 5775 inches is the exact height of the Great Pyramid (Joseph’s Pyramid) whose base perimeter is about 3000 feet. This is not a coincidence, but an article for another day.

TempleplanOnly the priests could actually enter the Sanctuary.  However, once we metaphysically enter, it is 42 cubits (steps) to the gate of the Holy of Holies.  This Gate, the Gate of 42, is 6 cubits by 7 cubits in dimensions.  The High Priest would have to pass through the Gate or plane of 42 to actually enter the Holy of Holies.  This is a pattern for us, for we have to surround ourselves with the 42 faces of the hypercube to harness Binah.  When the 5 Gates of the Temple Mount are added to the 7 internal ones, we have 12 Gates, corresponding to the 12 tribes.  Given that each Gate represents a journey of 500 years, collectively they are the 6000 years from the Aleph (א) to Moshiach and the final redemption.  Summing the dimensions for the full Temple Mount we have 3000 for the Temple Mount, 300 for the Courtyards, 32 for the Altar and 6 representing the width of all the walls for a total or 3338, whose square root is 57.78. The sum value of 3338 is also the year the First Holy Temple was destroyed, 3338 HC.

Like we discovered with Eleh Massey and like the structure of the meditation above, we find that within the Future Holy Temple the faces/planes/gates are guided by the 42-Letter Name and the surrounding edges/borders/walls by the 72 Names in that the area of the walls of the Outer Courtyard is 7200 cubits and that of the Temple Mount walls are 72,000 cubits while the 10 corner cubes of 63 each have a total cubic volume of 2160.

Astonishingly the total volume of the walls of the Outer Courtyard and of the Temple Mount walls respectively are 43200 and 432,000, resonating to the frequency of Binah, 432 Hz.

Let’s go back to where we started our meditation, at the central point formed from the 10 collapsed sefirot of Tohu, represented by the Yud (י) and rolled up with the 32 Paths of Wisdom found in the primordial Aleph (א).  They too are at the heart and core of the Future Holy Temple.  So are the 10 sefirot and 32 Paths of Wisdom of the Tree-of-life that form our world of Tikkune.  The 10 cubit tall central altar is a truncated 32 cubit square pyramid formed around a 10 x 10 x 10 core cubit cube or Yud (י)3. The pattern is clear: 32 Paths incorporating and forming around the 10 sefirot. Because 103 = 1000, it also represents the primordial Aleph (אלף) or eleph (אלף), meaning 1000.  It also connects to and for similar reasons the Shema prayer which has exactly 1000 letters.

Once again, our meditation provided by R’ Shimon Bar Yochai mimics the Future Holy anabkoach160-ksTemple in that our central point is the central point (Altar) of the Future Holy Temple. This point extends in a straight line along the path of 42, whereby we take 42 steps (cubits) from entering the Sanctuary until expanding along the plane of 42 as we enter the Holy of Holies.  Further,  the point expands 1000-fold from the 103 cubits of the Altar, which equals 1000 cubits3, to the 1003 cubits Temple building itself, which equals 1 million cubits3.  Then the expansion is 1000-fold again to the hypercube, represented by the entire Future Holy Temple complex whose 3002 grid (90,000 cubits2) divided into nine 1002 sections of the Inner and Outer Courtyards.  This expands to the 30002 Temple Mount (9,000,000 cubits2). In a similar manor the 32 square cubit Altar expands to the 3000 square cubit Temple Mount.

Thus as we expand our meditation from a compact central point to a cube, our powers to help and heal expand 1000-fold.  When we expand it again to a hypercube they again expand another 1000-fold (!). The capacity to contain and affect enormous amounts of targets speaks of a Divinely engineered process.  This is why at the beginning of the book of Devarim, Moses blesses us with a 1000-fold expansion.  He was blessing us that we would one day be able to meditate properly to achieve Binah consciousness and manifest the Future Holy Temple.

If we do the meditation above with the proper consciousness then you will help manifest the Future Holy Temple at the central point on Earth, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.  The implication of this may be more than we can fathom at this time.  However, HaShem is opening us up.  If your consciousness is tuning into radio Binah, you are being called upon to do your part and help.  We must all do what we are called to do, we must do whatever we can. Time is growing short and drawing near. Through the proper meditations and consciousness you signal your readiness and willingness. You amplify your powers to help.  If HaShem is fine-tuning your consciousness, it is for a reason.  Join in and engage it. HaShem needs for you to do your part. He needs for each of us to do our parts. This is why you were chosen.  Do not question it; He does not make mistakes.   Everyone today understands the power of a network—accept your invitation to join His.

Shabbat Shalom,
