The Monument is Giving Up its Secrets!

There’s more to the Washington Monument than we first revealed, but more important is what it connects us to as a metaphor: the central axis of the Tree-of-Life; the 42-Letter Sword of Moses; the 10 Commandments; and even Joseph’s Pyramid and the Future Holy Temple. It’s not as odd as it sounds and we’ll explain all these concepts and we promise we’ll then segue into them in subsequent articles with much fuller explanations.

Since the Monument was built to resemble a giant Egyptian obelisk dedicated to the sun, let’s start with the word Cap, as in capstone, which is spelled (C-P). As per the Arizal, the letters CP are two of the revolving 7-letter sequence that connects to the energy of and spiritually controls the influence of the 7 planets CPRTBGD; they are the first two when it comes to controlling the Sun, whose surface temperature as we’ve previously noted is 5778 K.

Here is a secret about the letter Caf (CP). While its numerical value sofit is 820, the same as the all-important phrase at Vayikra 19:18, paraphrased as “Love thy neighbor as thyself,” Caf (CP)’s ordinal value is 28, making its’ complete value (820+28) = 848, or 2 x 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David (the Messiah).

Nevertheless, besides representing Keter(CTR), the crowning sefira and besides also representing the Sun, as explained by Abraham, the Patriarch in his Book the Sefer Yetzira,” , the letter Caf (C) when spelled out (CP) also spells out the word for palm, as in the palm of our hands.

Thus our 2 palms obviously connect with the two 424’s, but they also connect with our 10 fingers, 5 on one side, 5 on the other, like the 10 sefirot, 10 Commandments on the 2 tablets, and like Abraham’s description, “5 on one side, 5 on the other, cleaved down the middle.” And the reason this is so significant will become clear once we examine why the 4 bases of the Washington Monument all had to be 55’ long.

Meanwhile, the Zohar supports this revelation in that in portion Ekev it states emphatically that the palms connect to the 14 joints of the fingers and that there are 28 joints in both hands, which is the numerical value of Koach, power.

Like the weight of the aluminum capstone at the tip of the Washington Monument (6.25 lbs) the ratio of its capstone (pyramidian) height to its base is also 34.45/55.125 ft = .625, reinforcing the image of the capstone pyramid as “H’Keter (the Crown)” of numerical value 625. It also connects it the Torah, whose square root of its total number of words, verses, and letters is exactly 625.

Just in case you think the Masons accidentally hit upon this ratio, please note that the ratio of the bases of the entire Monument to that of the capstone are also 34.45/55.125 ft = .625,

Another very significant and telling ratio chosen by the Monument’s architects is given by the Monument’s height to its base is 555/55.5 ft = 10 for a ratio of 10 to 1, or inversely 1 ft of width for every 10 of height, a very steep angle indeed.  More significant than its angle of inclination is its similarity of structure to another Keter that involves 10: The 10 Commandments.

The 10 Commandments (Utterances) found in the 13 verses of chapter 20 (the numerical value of the Hebrew letter Caf) of Exodus consist of exactly 620 letters, the numerical value of the word Keter and of the Hebrew word for 20 (Esrim), an obvious allusion to the point the Israelites had reached as they were being offered the Tree-of-Life reality. Nevertheless, the similarity in structure is delineated by the 62 letter Yuds (of numerical value 10 each)­­—the first letter of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH)—for a total of 620 (Keter once again), meaning that 1 in 10 of every letter in the 10 Commandments is the letter Yud(Y) of numerical value 10.

Like the 2 palms and the 2 sets of Tablets given to Moses, there are 2 recitals of the 10 Commandments in the Torah, for a total of 20, one in Exodus and the other in Deuteronomy. While the first has 620 letters, the second has 708 letters, with 708 being the numerical value of the Upper 42-Letter Name (the 42 letters of the 3 iterations of the spelled out Tetragrammaton (YHVH). We only bring up the 42 Letters because there are 42 Letters in the names of the 11 sefirot of the Tree-of-Life, the central column of which the Washington Monument may be a metaphor.

And between the 2 recitals there are 130 Yuds(Y) with 130 being the numerical value for Sinai and for (Sulam) ladder. And while some say that 708 relates to 5778 and 5708, the year Israel received statehood (70 years before 5778 as prophesied in the Zohar 2000 years ago, there is a less subtle connection between 5778 and the 10 Commandments. The first set, found at Exodus 20:2 is located exactly at the 107007th letter in the Torah or the 107000th letter from the word Bereshit (“In the Beginning”), and 5778 is the exact sum of all the positive integers from 1 to 107.  This obviously can’t be coincidental, and as divine confirmation the first 2 words of these 10 Commandments “Anochi YHVH (I am G-d)” have the exact numerical value 107, and they contain the first 2 Yuds(Y) of the 62, back-to-back right in their middle (ENCY YHVH). Moreover, these 2 words (I am G-d) have an ordinal value of 62.

And by the way, the last word in the 10 Commandments has the newly revealed gematria sofit sofit value of 820, the same as Caf (CG) and of the singular Torah verse of unconditional love, as mentioned above.

Thus the Monument can also be seen as a giant letter Vav(V), which in Hebrew is a vertical line, capped by the Hebrew letter Caf (C) and as any Kabbalist knows CV of numerical value 26 represents The Tetragrammaton (YHVH), the ineffable Name of G-d associated with the 6 sefirot (dimensions) bundled together and called Zeir Anpin, metaphorically the vertical pipeline from our world into the upper spiritual (Heavenly) one.

And speaking of metaphors, while the Washington Monument is found at the edge of the reflecting pool at NW 15th street, the 42-letters Sword of Moses is found right after the crossing of the Red Sea (Yam Suf or End Sea) at paragraph 42 of the Book of Shmot, Exodus 15:11.  Appropriately enough, the sword is tipped with the word and letter Alef, which is shaped like a X comprised of 4 component letter, 2 of which are the letter Yud(Y). If you look upon the monument as a 4-sided sword, you’ll see the X formed by the 4 angles at the top.

There is one more monumental connection to make, of which there is no doubt the Masons were aware, for, you see, the entrance to the Great Pyramid (referred to as Joseph’s pyramid in the series of articles we began late last year and hope to continue with soon as a prelude to The Future Holy Temple) is 55 ft off the ground, and that pyramid too had a special capstone high atop of it. Furthermore, the ratio of the height of the Washington Monument to the Great Pyramid is precisely 15/13 or 1.1538 as in the 115 jubilee years from Adam to the year prophesied for the 3rd opportunity of the Tree-of-Life reality, 5778.

And if you don’t think the architects of the Monument had some inkling as to what they were connecting to, please note that the perimeter of the capstone is 137 ft and 137 is the well-known numerical value of Kabbalah. Moreover, Moreover, the Base of the Great Pyramid is 13.7 times that of the Washington Monument, a giant Egyptian Obelisk. Furthermore, the resultant diagonals of the capstone are 77.85 (NE-SW) and 78 (NW-SE).

Moreover, the dimension 55 ft (5 on one side, 5 on the other, cleaved down the middle) hides the secret of the ancient cubit needed for the building of the Future Holy Temple, and 555 of those cubits equals 1271, the year the Zohar mysteriously reappeared in Spain.

And the Future Holy Temple will be 100 of Caf (CP) cubits high, once again connecting with Keter and that Capstone.

Nevertheless, 555 ft = 242.18 cubits, and since the year 5778 HC is also the year 2018 CE, this year of prophesy is exactly 242 years after the founding of the United States of America in 1776.

Food for thought.

In the coming weeks we’ll be exploring in depth the various avenues brought about from the various metaphors and connections laid out above.

Let’s Count the Omer, but what are we really counting?

Our revelations last year,  about the Omer we’re pretty startling, but one simple piece of the puzzle had alluded us: why do we count it twice? One time by days and another by weeks.

As noted last year, since no light is ever lost, the sum of 49 days we count is equivalent to the sum of the digits 1-49, which is 1225. But each weekly cycle, like the 7 words and 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse from which the Ana B’koach is derived, is similarly counted and the sum of the 7 days counting (1-7) is similarly 28.

And if we apply the value 28 to each week’s counting and count the 7 weeks using the same principles as above and as was used repeatedly in the construction of the Torah, we get the sum of the 7 sums of the weekly cycles as  (28 + (28+28) + (28+28+28)…) or 28 squared, which is 784.

But what is revealed by this double counting that we do every year is 784 + 1225 = 2009, as in last year 2009  CE.

Now the day we don’t count, the final day, the completion of the Jubilee cycle, is the 50th day,  Shavuot,  the day we received the 10 utterances (Commandments) and thus the 10 sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree of Life, 66.6 jubilee years ago (3330 years ago).

And adding the final 10 to 2009, gives us 2019, the year the tzaddikim indicate was slated all along for the final redemption.

Presented below is the in depth article published last year. The importance of 2009 and the distinguishing of the final 10 years to the geula (redemption) will become more apparent once you’ve read it (or reread it).

f you’ve been reading our articles, you may feel like you’ve been collecting pieces of the giant cosmic puzzle, so here are few more key ones. For 3330 years we’ve counted the Omer, but for the first time we have a clear understanding as to why.

The Key is in the Word “Counting!”

The Key is in the word “Counting.” The Torah doesn’t command us to count many things, but it’s very clear about counting the 50 days of the Omer every year and about counting and keeping track of jubilee (Yovel) years every 50 years.

The tzaddikim instructed us long ago how to count the Omer properly, counting the days one at a time: along the branches of the 49-word Psalm 67 in the shape of a menora, one word at a time; counting the 49-letter central trunk of that menora one letter at a time; and counting the 42-Letter Name of G-d (Ana B’Koach) one letter/word at a time, including the name of the angel comprised of the 6 letters of each of the 7 rows, making 49 letters or words to be counted in total for each of 49 (7 x7) days from the 2nd day of Pesach through the reception of the Torah on Shavuot, the 50th day.

To the kabbalists, 50 always signifies Binah, the upper sefira (dimension) of Understanding, as in the 50 Gates of Binah, and the numerical value of Binah is 67, so it’s no coincidence that King David, wrote the divinely inspired Psalm 67 with 49 words. It’s also no coincidence that the midpoint in David’s life, 2889 HC, marks the exact midpoint from the Birth of Adam to the date the tzaddikim predicted for the full manifestation of the Moshiach and the tree-of-life (Etz Chaim) reality and geula in 5778 HC (2017-18 CE).

It’s also no coincidence that the 42-Letter Name is being used as the tzaddikim have also told us that the understanding of this Name will bring about the geula (final redemption).

The theme of midpoints is very important and the midpoint in the counting is on the 25th (5 x 5) day. Another important day occurs 8 days later in the counting:s the 33rd, day, called La’g B’Omer, when we celebrate the hillula of the author of the Zohar, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai and when his energy is available to us. The 33rd day in terms of the sefirot (dimensions) is hod of hod, or the 5th level of the 5th level, so you can already see there is a connection to the midpoint of the Omer, or 25th day.

The open revelations below were first made on the 33rd day, L’ag B’Omer, this year, 5/12/2009, and not coincidentally we also revealed that the gematria of L’ag B’Omer is 358, that of Mashiach, when the kolel of the 7 letters is included, which isn’t surprising since Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, has a spark of Moses, who was an aspect of H’Moshiach.

What we didn’t reveal that day was that at the 33rd letter of the 42-Letter Name we have the word L’ag is reverse:

יגל פזק

And perpendicular to it we have the letters (Sh,Y, Ch, B) for Shimon Bar Yochai, and just as significantly the Shin, Yud, and Chet add up to 318, as in the exact numerical value of B’Omer, thus at the 33rd letter in the 42-Letter Name we have L’ag B’Omer and the initials of Shimon Bar Yochai. And if we use the gematria atbash of the Bet, which is Mem, we get a total gematria value of 358, Mashiach.

אבג יתץ

קרע שטן

נגד יכש

בטר צתג

חקב טנע

יגל פזק

שקו צית

But that is just an aside, the real revelations are still to come.

As we said, the 33rd day of the Omer is kabbalistically hod of hod, or the 5th level (sefira) of the 5th level, and thus is related to the very center of the
counting, the 25th day or 5 x 5, 8 days earlier, which is not coincidental since the first 8 words of the Torah have 33 words and a total value of 3003.

But here is what we can reveal today. The midpoint in the counting of both the central 49 letters and the 49 words of Psalm 67 intersect at the same place: the 1st Mem in Yamim. And when we sum up those 25 words, plus the kolel for the 25 words we get 5778.

Moreover the sum of the square roots of those 25 words is 345, that of Moses.

Remember 5778 is 9, or 3 x 3, years from now, 3330 years after the Torah was first received in 2448 HC. And as unconceivable as it is, up to that 25th word, the sum of the square roots of the 24 words is 333.078 or 3330 years and 78, represents the initials of Etz Chaim (A,Ch) the tree-of-life.

So given that when we examined the sum of the square roots of the 33 letters we counted through L’ag B’Omer this year, it came to 220.095 or 5/12/2009, May 12th 2009, L’ag B’Omer 2009 (5769 HC).

And the sum of the square roots of the sofit values of the same 33 letters is 256.44, the numerical value of Aaron, Moses’ brother and another aspect of Mashiach.

This past L’ag B’Omer, the energy of Mashiach that was earned during teh 8 days of Pesach this year was revealed to us and for us through Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, and it was marked on a counting system invented thousands of years ago.

There are no coincidences about these midpoints. Within the 248 words (1000 letters) of the Shema, the first paragraph has 42 words and is this associated with the 42-Letter Name of G-d, but in the center of that paragraph there are the words Brit Bam or “Covenant of 42.” At the very center of the 42-Letter Name of G-d we find the word Brit spelled out again. And while we’ve previously explained in The Genesis Prayer and elsewhere the connection of this central placement in the Ana B’Koach to Moshiach and the value 358, the sum of the initials of the words through the midpoint of the Shema’s first paragraph is also 358 (including the kolel of 1).

But there are two words “Bam(BM)” (Bet-Mems, or 42) in the Shema, and the 2nd one is the 137th word, as in the numerical value of Kabbalah (to receive), meaning that the span that just includes both 42’s is 115 words long. And this is significant because we’ve just completed 115 jubilee years since Adam and the year 5778 is exactly 115.56 jubilee years since Adam.

Jubilee (Yovel), by the way, is spelled (YBL) of numerical value 42.

And if we go to the 115 chapter in the Torah, we find the main verses telling us to Count the Jubilee years, starting at Vayikra 25:10. Once again 25.

Now, if the 22 words, 87 letters, 1 verse and 5 for the 5 final letters, owe also get 115 , but what’s more is that when we add the numerical value of final letters plus the kolel of 115 we get from the 22 words in the verse, plus the kolel of 115 we get 5769 (2009 ce), the same date given by the counting of the Omer.

But what’s the significance of the jubilee years?

It’s encoded into The Torah, but not all that cryptically. The first 4 words of Leviticus (Vayikra) 25:10 are “And you shall hallow the 50th year” which is Hebrew is VKDShTM ET ShNT HChMShYM, and if we isolate 50th year and separate out the final mem (M), shifting it to the middle of the placement word ET, we get EMT ShNT HChMShY or “And you shall make Holy Truth, Year of H’Moshiach.”

This full verse is divided into two parts, the first being 42 letters and the second being 45 letters, together forming 87, the gematria of Ani YHVH (I am G-d), and if we read the verse, even translated, it’s obvious that it speaks of the arrival of Moshiach in the first section and of the geula in the second. See for yourself.

The first 42 letters are “And you shall hallow the 50th year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all it’s inhabitants,” then the second 45 letters are “and you shall return every man to his family property and you shall return every man to his fmaily.”

While the initials of the last 3 words in the verse spell out Emet (EMT), truth, which is what the Torah and the 42-Letter name of G-d are called, the last word in the verse is Teshuvu. “you shall return” of gematria 708, the same as that of the upper 42-Letters of the Name of G-d.

And Rabbi Shimon in the Zohar in the Idra Zuta (section86), speaking about Vayikra 25:10, explains what the jubilee (yoval) is “and that spreads out its roots by the river (yuval).” (Jeremiah 17:8) For jubilee means a river after the river, which is Ima that comes out flows and emerges uninterruptedly to the garden, which is Malchut.” Ima is Binah.

Yovel (Jubilee) and Yuval (the river) are spelled the same except that the Torah sometimes spells Yovel without the vav(V), giving is a value of 42. To understand this you must know the secret that the vav always represents Zeir Anpin as does the number 45, which is why the verse 25:10 has two sections, one with 42 letters representing Yovel (jubilee) and the 42-Letter Name and the other with 45 letters, representing Zeir Anpin and Yuvel (the river), making the 42-Letter Name Binah to Zeir Anpin and making their union/fusion the key to the free-flowing river of Light, that is the Tree-of-Life.

And just to be clear, this verse 25:10, this 115th chapter, announcing the arrival of Mashiach and the geula with the jubilee year, starts at the 180030th letter in the Torah and the square root of 180030 is 424.300, with 424 being the gematria of Mashiach Ben David.

As for why 180030 letters and not 180000 letters which would be so cool, who knows, but Adam, who gave 70 years of his 1000-year lifespan to David, lived 930 years, or 18 jubilee years plus 30 years.

And speaking of David, there are exactly 115.56 jubilee years from Adam to 5778, and while the midpoint in that time frame is the year 2889, the midpoint in David’s life, we also have inexplicably an equation whereby 115.56 x 28.89 = 3338, which is the year the First Temple was destroyed, which is also defined by 5778 x .5778 = 3338. And while the square root of 115.56 = 107.50, we also have the phenomenon that the sum of the integers through 107 = 5778. For more on this please see the books The Divine Calendar and There’s Nothing Random About the Universe, but either way, there is a definite and definitive calendar of what is to happen and when, and it’s been around for 5778 years, which just happens to be the surface temperature of the sun (5778 K).

And most important for us, ever since L’ag B’Omer 2009 (5769) the energy of rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, the spark of Moshiach is here with us and here to stay.

Right now the energy is individual. Those that choose to connect to it can. It has not been universally available for nearly 3330 (66.6 jubilee years), but it is now. The river (yuval) is flowing.

To the tzaddikim the final letters in a Torah phrase speak to the future, and the telling final letters of the 4 words VKDShTM ET ShNT HChMShYM, add up to 880 as in the 88th paragraph of Vayikra, which it is, but they also add up to 2000 using gematria sofit, and it was in 2004 that the first book about the 42-Letter Name, The Genesis Prayer, was written to explain the connection between the Name and Moshiach and to help open the channels for the river to flow through. Alternatively, 2000 plus the 17 letters in the 4 words is 2017, as in the year 5778.

As per The Divine Calendar, the theme of 8’s is of extreme significance in Biblical dating and hence the connection of 8 days between between the 25th and 33rd days, but it also explains Rabbi Shimon’s and the spark of Moshiach’s reappearance 8 years before the start of the 2017-2018 (5777-5778) period, which coincides which what the tzaddikim have told us will be the 8 year period of the brit (covenant) of Mashiach, akin to the 8 day period before the brit milah of a new born boy.

So it’s also no coincidence that in this double reading corresponding to the 57-78 verses, we also read at Vayikra 26:42, “then I will remember My Covenant with Jacob and also My Covenant with Isaac and also My Covenant with Abraham I will remember, and I will remember the land.” And let us not forget that G-d made his Covenant with Abraham in 2018 HC.

And just like the word Brit (BRYT) spelled out at the center of first 42-word paragraph of the Shema and at the center of the 42-Letter Name, and of the numerical term 358 (Moshiach) mathematically spelled out in both places, and just like the first 4 letters of the central trunk of the the Psalm 67 menora that also spell Moshiach (MShYCh) and its next 8 letters that add up to 358 (Mashiach), the first 5 initials of the first 5 words of verse 25:10 add up the 612, that of Brit (Covenant).

G-d is not forgetting His Covenants, so let us not forget either. The time and energy is upon us.

The Shabbos Hurricane

Last Friday and Saturday a storm hit New York, hit us hard.  As we ventured out Sunday with no heat, power, or phones we learned that the fierce storm had actually been an unpredicted unnamed hurricane, the Shabbos Hurricane. The hurricane proved fatal for a few, but devastating for many in the New York-New Jersey-Connecticut Metropolitan region.  Four days later, with the schools closed we still didn’t have power and were just one family of 120,000 of the original 500,000 still without power.  But it was only while attempting to drive around, that we realized the extent of the devastation: thousands upon tens of thousands of large trees had been ripped out of the ground and toppled over upon houses, cars and most often the power lines, causing the telephones poles that carried those power lines to snap and topple with them across the main thoroughfares. We couldn’t travel 2 blocks without being detoured.  The 75 mile an hour winds and even stronger gusts caught the numerous tall evergreen trees like sails on the sea, and splintered any other tree not in prime condition. The first comment anyone and everyone had was that this was a war zone. So why did it happen?

Usually the weatherman and weather channels track these storms with non-stop team coverage for a week before they make landfall with vivid pictures of weatherman standing on the shore, leaning into wind microphones aloft, to show us how brave they are and what we’re up against. So how did this storm, predicted to dump 2-4 inches of rain—sizable, but manageable—over our region take them all by surprise?

I first look to the spiritual, and yes, trees and nature live a life cycle that includes weeding out the weaker ones to make room for new growth, and yes, many souls are locked up inside trees and maybe they all needed releasing at this moment in time for some reason unbeknownst to us. But once our power and order was restored and I found the time to catch the news, another reason occurred to me.

While the storm was just making shore and was still a simple rainstorm on Friday, the Obama administration was threatening Israel and verbally attacking it for continuing to build homes for its people (Bnei Israel) and for not actively engaging its enemies (Ishmael) in a “so-called” peace dialogue. This is the same administration that spent the past year twiddling its thumbs while Iran sped along its developments of a nuclear arsenal aimed at Israel. It’s not hard to see where the Obama administration’s priorities lie, but it is quite coincidental that as the verbal attacks on Israel intensified Friday and Saturday, the simple rainstorm suddenly became the most devastating natural disaster to befall our region in known history.

What was also seemingly coincidental was the freak death of the very beloved Rabbi Rubenstein, who was struck by lightening in his Shabbos sleep less than 1/4 mile from here exactly 23 months ago to the day of our Shabbos no name hurricane.

Since the hurricane hit on Shabbot, it behooves us to look for answers to the Torah portion read this week, Vayakel, whose numerical value is 151, the same as the word “mikve,” representing a physical and significantly, a spiritual cleansing. We just finished the incident of the golden calf and Moses is about to give us the laws of Shabbat. And since the first verse, phrase, or words of anything and in this case, the portion, is the seed level and thus the spiritual guide for the rest of portion, we should examine the first 7 word phrase of this portion: “Moses assembled the whole Israelite community (VYKHL MShH ET CL ADT BNY YShREL).”

The first word as we said represented the power of the mikve, or cleansing.

And while the second word is Moshe, representing healing, the first two together (spiritual cleansing-healing) numerically sum to 496, that of the sefira (dimension) of Malchut, our world, and thus a cleansing and healing of our world, a tikune or correction if you will.

In contrast, the 3rd and 4th words add up to 451, the numerical value of Ishmael, representing the Arab and Moslem nations, also fathered by Abraham.

The next word is the 5th word, a permutation of the word Da’at, “knowledge, the sefira (dimension) representing the combined upper worlds.

And finally “Bnei Israel” the Israelites, whose numerical value with the kolel for their 8 letters is 611, the numerical value of Torah.

As further evidence of this imagery, we have the sum of the first 5 initials of the phrase adding up to 137 and the last two to 12, possibly representing the 137 years of Ishmael’s life and the 12 tribes of Bnei Israel.

Of course, beyond revealing the encoding anything we can say about this verse would be no more than inference, but we do know from the sages of blessed memory that the final letters point toward the future and the 7 final letters in this phrase including the kolel add up to 913, the numerical value of Bereshit, the Torah’s first word, “In the beginning,” hinting at the time of Da’at that existed in the beginning and to a new beginning. And also the numerical value of the initials through the word Da’at, 137, is also that of “to receive,” inferring “a receipt of Da’at.”

Nevertheless, the full value of the 7 words, reminiscent of the Torah’s first verse, also of 7 words, is 2017, when the kolel for the 7 words is removed.  Or 2001, if the kolel for the 23 letters of the phrase is removed, and we all know the destruction that took us by surprise and befell our region in 2001.

As to what new beginning there may be in 2017, we can look to the one word that both the Torah’s first verse and this phrase have in common, Et, whose numerical value when the kolel for the other 6 words in either case is added is 407, whose square root in turn is 20.17424, or 2017 again and 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David, which coincides with the predictions of certain tzaddikim of blessed memory.

And if Obama is elected to a second term, that term will be up in 2017.

Shabbat Shalom,

Ezra

The Journeys of our Lives

These are the journey(s) of our lives. In the Torah portion Masei, we encounter the list of the 42 journeys the Israelites took during their 40 years in the desert including exiting the exile in Egypt at Pi-Haratha to entering the Promised Land. The tzaddikim, including most notably the Baal Shem Tov, have told us that these journeys parallel the journeys each of us must undertake to return our souls to G-d in purity, and also that these mimic the journeys that we all take collectively from the moment of Creation to the geula (final redemption).

The 42 places were separated from each other by the prefixes to (Bet) and from (Mem) and also by the word journey (VYSAV). The prefixes M and B, together have the value 42 and also reference the 42-Letter Name (the Shem MB), while the word journey (VYSAV) is repeated 42 times in this section of the Book of Numbers, chapter 33. It is repeated another 17 times, the numerical value of the Hebrew word tov, meaning good, throughout the rest of the Torah, for a total of 59 times.

The word journey (VYSAV) is interestingly constructed, as it can be split into VYS of numerical value 76 and then AV also of numerical value 76, and when we multiply 76 x 76 we get 5776, plus 2 for the kolel of the two 76’s gives us 5778, the year the tzaddikim have indicated for the arrival of the Moshiach (Messiah) and the geula.

This makes sense to readers of this blog and of “The Divine Calendar” and “There’s Nothing Random in the Universe,” as we’ve already seen a preponderance of evidence for the date 5778 (2018 CE), but within the context of the 42 journeys, let’s look back to Creation, where the 42 Letter Name comes from (the first verse of the Torah and the first 42 letters of the Torah).

Before we do that we should mention that when we add the 14 times the word “will journey” without the final vav (VYSA) to the 59 times the word journeyed (VYSAV) is used, we get a total of 73 times in the Torah that the word “journey” is mentioned, which is interesting because the small gematria value of the upper 42 Letter Name is 159 and that of the lower one is 173, and the unification of the two brings about the redemption.

This is significant for several reasons: 1) 73 is the numerical value of the sefira/dimension of Chochma (wisdom); 2) The total gematria of the Torah’s first verse is 2701, which is equivalent to the sum of all the positive integers through 73; and 3) The number 9 divided by the written out small gematria of the 42 letters is equal to 73.1415777, a graphic combination of the number 73, the mathematical constant Pi (3.14159…) and the year 5777 (5778).

Thus through the 73 times the word journey is utilized in the Torah, the journey is anchored at the moment of Creation, and extended outward from there, theoretically ending in 5778, So let’s take the year 5776 derived directly from the word “journeyed (VYSAV)” and we see that when we take it back to Creation through 5776/42 we get 137.5238… with 137 being the numerical value of Kabbalah, meaning “to receive” and both 52 and 238 (Rachel) represent Malchut.

It’s all connected, as explained in “The Genesis Prayer,” 137 and 73 are both reciprocals of one another as 1/73 = .0137 and visa-versa, and the total gematria value of the torah’s first verse, 2701 is 73% of that of the 42-Letter Name, 3701.

137 is also the numerical value of the name of the angel of the Torah, Yofiel, and like all the angels represents a specific energy that we feel, yet cannot begin to grasp. Likewise, Metatron, chief of the Archangels, guardian of knowledge and the Throne of G-d, has the numerical value of 314, the same as the mathematical value of Pi (3.14159265358…). He is the key to all Creation, permeates all our existence, and yet is totally beyond our comprehension. When G-d created our world, he first set forth these specific energies as a basis for matter and life to feed off of, a dynamic scaffolding of sorts.

It’s not coincidence that physicists see the universe as 13.7 Billion years old.

Within the name Metatron (MTtTtRVN) we have the double letter tet-tet, which the Zohar explains has the numerical value 18 and thus is chai (life), but this is also the marker for the end of our cycle, for as I explained it to my children, the end of the time-out Adam was given as punishment for forsaking the tree-of-life for the momentary pleasure of the tree-of-knowledge of good and evil.

For you see, as fully explained in the book “There’s Nothing Random in the Universe,” the other primordial mathematical constant that guides life and the universe, Phi (1.61803399…), when raised to the power of 18, in other words (Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi), equals 5778.000.

And the letters that are left in his name (MRVN) add up numerically to 296, that of “the Earth (HERZ),” the final word in the Torah’s first verse, the verse which, as detailed in “The Genesis Prayer,” also equates to Pi (3.14155) through a simple gematria operation and also in a dozen other ways.

And while we know from “There’s Nothing Random in the Universe” that Pi is also intimately connected to the date 5778, we can also apply the same formula we did with Phi and see that Pi raised to the power of 18 can be divided by 666.52 squared to equal 2000, the Hebrew year 5760, which is 18 years prior to 5778 (2018 ce), and is the year that Rav Abraham Azulai of blessed memory advised the period of Oy and Ashray would begin.

These are the journeys of chai (life), our individual lives and our collective life as a people. In the Hebrew days of the week there are collectively 28 letters, connecting them to the 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse as well, and they add up to exactly 3000 in gematria, as explained in the dailyzohar.com. If we take the 7th day as “the seventh (HShBYAY)” instead of Shabbat, then the total gematria, including the kolel of 6 for the 6 preceding days, is 2701, the same as that of the Torah’s first verse. By the way, the two variations together, 2701 + 3000 + the 7 days = 5708, the year Israel became a nation, 70 years before 5778, with 70 being the expansion of the 7 days through the 10 sefirot (dimensions).

Every week is another opportunity to connect to the full energy of Creation through redemption. Every week that passes is a missed opportunity.

Every week we pass through another cycle of 7, another journey, and must ask ourselves what we learned about ourselves that brought us closer to G-d, through awe, love, or appreciation, that brought us closer to ending out time-out. In explaining it to my children when they asked about it, it was simple. You get time-out from your father when you’ve done something wrong because he loves you and wants you to learn from your mistake (with mercy), and when the time out is over, if you’ve been good, realize the error of your ways, and are in a good place, the time out is over; if not, it gets prolonged.

And to bring it full circle, the square root of 5778/(7 day cycle) = 28.730… as in the 28 letters and the sum of the 73 integers in the Torah’s first verse, from which Creation stems. But we have the cycles of our years, lives, generations and jubilee years (7 X 7 +1 years) to contend with as well. We must use them all to work on ourselves.

5778 years is a long time-out, for us anyway. Let’s make sure we’re in a good place, have realized the error of our ways and are ready to embrace G-d (Our Father) and the tree-of-life reality when it ends.

When the Israelites, left Egypt and stood at Sinai, and last had the opportunity of receiving immortality and the Tree-of-life reality through a reprieve in the time-out, the year was 2448, 66.6 jubilee years before 5778, and 42.4% of the way to 5778. 424 is the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David. There are no coincidences in G-d timetable, His actions, or His Torah. Let’s not let doubts overcome us as they did our ancestors at Sinai.

Spirituality (the realization of the tree-of-life reality) doesn’t just happen; it takes work and time, which is why G-d gave us so much of both. So let’s not find ourselves staring down at 5778, and looking back, saying, “if only He had given us more time.”
Chodesh Tov.

It’s Rosh Chodesh Av, the month controlled by the influence of the Sun, as explained by Abraham, the Patriarch, in the Sefer Yetzirah. This is the Sun, whose surface temperature is 5778 K. Let’s connect to the energy that G-d has given us, and come out of our time-out better for having had lived through it.
