When the Wisdom Hits our Hearts.

Last Rosh Hashannah (5769) we pointed out that the Dow sank 777.78 points erev Rosh Hashannah to begin the new year. And the pattern of symmetrical and numerically significant numbers found in the closings of the US financial market—all related to the year 5778—on major Jewish Holidays continued through to Pesach, when the markets stopped plunging and reversed course.  This, as has been explained in previous articles, coincided with the arrival of Mashiach consciousness during the Pesach cleansing process.  Since then there have been no significant numerical alignments with the markets, until this Rosh Hashannah 5770, when the DOW closed down .42% to settle at 9,778.86 So what does this herald? And what relationship can be drawn between 5770, 9778 and 5778? The 86, as the numerical value of Elohim, and the 42, as in the 42-Letter Name of G-d—both connected to Creation—and also the synergy with 778 are all obvious, but in the year 5770 the 9 in 9778 plays a part too. Throughout this past year we’ve spoken about the significance of there being 9 years until the final redemption at the end of 5778 in the year 2019, and we’ve explained about the 8 final years until the Brit of Mashiach as advised by the tzaddikim, which is to occur in 5778 (2018), as revealed to us by Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag of blessed memory. But the answer about the 9 lies in the Hebrew spelling of 5770 and in the “generations of Adam.” You see Lemekh was the 9th generation in the lineage of Adam and he lived 777 years. Lemekh (LMC) is a permutation...

Who put the Tree into the Tree-of-Life: A Startling Revelation.

There are moments when science, religion and spirituality come together. There aren’t as many as there should be because everyone has his own entrenched beliefs. Nevertheless, this is one of those precious moments of harmony, when we can all be in awe, when we can all see and understand that the primordial underlying structure of the physical universe, that the Bible, which is the essence of religion, and that the structure of the spiritual world are all the same, and that this is in no way random. As we explain in much greater depth in There’s Nothing Random About the Universe, the primordial mathematical constant that controls the natural shaping of spirals, from the stars in our galaxy, to the petals on our flowers, to the shape of our seashells and our Trees, and to the growth of our populations is called Phi. Phi is a specially balanced proportion that extends between the two parts of a segmented whole and then to the whole itself (ie the short length is to the longer one as the longer one is to the entire length). Nature naturally follows this proportion at all turns, and when art or architecture does too it gives us a beautiful sense of harmony, balance, and well-being. But Phi is not only integral to the existence of the universe but to the design of the Torah as well, as we’ll show below. Moreover, as is covered extensively in There’s Nothing Random About the Universe it is uniquely connected to the number and thus the year 5778 as well. There are 5 Books in the Torah, all of...

To See…

We’ve spent a great deal of time delving into the secrets of the Torah and increasing our awe of G-d (Hashem) and his unbelievably perfect and complex works. And we just recently explained that speaking and listening and “seeing” with the heart is the key to taking that awe and extending it to all His creations, and thus to truly become one with them and thus Him. That combination will elevate us to a very high level, but it takes one more ingredient to bring Mashiach. And that is CERTAINTY. The word for certainty in Hebrew, Veda’ut (VEDEVT) has the numerical value of 418, like that of the spelling of the letter chet, the 8th letter, representing the Brit (Covenant), and the connection to all the significant Biblical dates, as we’ve seen in The Divine Calendar. But when we add the kolel for the 6 letters in the word, we get 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David—a hint of what certainty can really bring us. When we add the numerical value of “unconditional love,” Ahavatchinam, 506 to 424, we get 930, as in the 930 years of Adam, which we know from the sages is deliberately 70 years less than 1000, and moreover, that 70 is the numerical value of Sod (secrets), as in the deeper Torah, and the 70 faces of the Torah as described by the sages. Therefore, the sefira of Keter, the highest possible crowning level (dimension), or 1000, is achieved by combining the deeper study of Torah (Sod Torah) with unconditional love and certainty. So what is certainty? We’re not taking about having...

All My Teachers

The portion of Ekev starts off with “If only you listen..” The first word Vhayah (VHYH) is an obvious permutation of the Tetragrammaton YHVH, and the second word Ekev of numerical value 172 is the also the word for heel, which the sages equate with the heel of Adam, which is what they say our generation is, the lowest of them all spiritually. Yet 172 is only 1 away from 173, the small gematria value of the 42-Letter Name of G-d, which was the seed of all Creation. So as lowly as we are, we are closer than any previous generation (except the one at Mt. Sinai that blew their opportunity) to returning to Creation and the Tree-of-Life reality. So, yes, if only we listen. Devarim 7:13 “He will [1] love you, [2] bless you, and [3] make you numerous. He will [4] bless the fruit of your womb, [5] the fruit of your land, [6] your grain, [7] your wine, [8] your oil, [9] the calves of your herds, and [10] the lambs of your flocks…” In the very next verse, Devarim 7:13, we are given 10 blessings, split into the upper 3 and then the 7 lower ones, just like the 3 and 7 structures of the Tree-of-Life.  Once again, Moses is trying to strengthen our connection to the Tree-of-Life and show us the blessings that will come from it—if only we’d listen. To that end we need to start listening with our hearts. The numerical value of heart, lev (LB) in Hebrew, is 32 and all 32 Paths of Wisdom flow through the heart.  The only...
