The Speed of Time.

So much to write about from this Shabbat and Lech Lecha, and we’ll get to that over the next few days, but I just want to clarify what might be happening with time as we reach the event horizon of the Tree-of-Life that we’ve been discussing: nothing.

Nothing? Well not exactly nothing. It’s just that nothing will change with time is the greater sense of the universe; what will change is our perspective of it.  What’s actually going to happen is that the veils of klippot will be removed layer by layer at an exponential rate, and each time one does the amount of the space of time that we see and thus experience will be expanded.  In other words, in the space of our current month, enough time may transpire to advance 10 years worth of activity, yet our calendar will still show only 4.2 weeks have passed. Thus great advances in all areas of science, technology, communication, medicine and spirituality will be possible.

The downside is that Man may very well chalk this up to his own process and let it feed his ego; rather than envision it as G-d’s will and an opportunity and time of true enlightenment. Also, great advances in weaponry are also possible and probably, Man being Man.  Remember what happened at the time of the Tower of Babel.

In conclusion, the universe isn’t changing, we will be.  As the veils of physical limitations are removed, we’ll become more in tune with the universe. Some of us will adapt; others will not be able to.  The idea is to grow with the enlightenment, not to  look to enrich the physicality and ego by it.  Once we hit the event horizon, only the spiritual will be able the transcend.

The World is Catching On.

This is from an Argentinian Astrologer who sees a major major shift beginning to occur in the world and sees is becoming concrete in 2018. I personally don’t know too much about astrology, but I do know that Rav Ashlag and the tzaddikim of blessed memory predicted 2018 (5778) would be the year the Tree-of-life reality opens up for us (in other words the geula, final redemption and manifestation of the Moshiach (Messiah).

He makes some bold predictions, but as we said in our last post, with the approaching advent of the Tree-of-life, time will stretch out, be pulled toward infinity, like a ship approaching a black hole, and all the advanced he predicts will indeed be possible.

We present it here with google translation and in its original Spanish text.

By Emilio Garcia, Argentine astrologer

On May 29, the planet Uranus in the constellation of Pisces left to enter Aries, which has a great deal of meaning and encouragement to mankind.

Uranus is a planet of air passing to radiate the energy of Aries, Fire Sign. It is already known that air power fuels and fire, so we expect large unexpected changes in levels, the intellect (Uranus) is strongly influenced towards the spirit (Fire of Aries) and changes will be designed primarily to Earth in all our human activities.

A new era “mind – inner fire” has begun and we should not accept it and hosted it with all our heart and mind, to resonate with the energy that comes from outside.

Changes (Uranus), large (Aries) have already begun to take shape. Some beings, the most sensitive, and will be experiencing as a mental restlessness, feeling that something should be done but not yet knowing full well what is expected of them. Others, slower to react, will find themselves suddenly faced with unexpected situations that were never contemplated as possible, and if so, my advice as an astrologer would be “sooner resign yourself to change, not try to hold what it falls in possible, hang it, so it falls as soon as possible, and do not miss the train to try to sustain the unsustainable. ”

Whatever it is, in the lives of people, which is already outdated, there will be change, inexorably. It’s design of the energies of the universe and man is impossible to resist.

Big losses were recorded from this date on the world order, but they are only movements necessary for them to install new proposals, new movements, intellectual and spiritual. The world is not the same as it was in June 2010, some will charge, others feel an uneasiness and not know why. Here I explain why.

Arians are very nervous and anxious as well as the other Fire signs (Leo and Sagittarius), because they are most sensitive to the type of energy radiated, the other Cardinal Signs (are 90 degrees of Aries (Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) are irradiated with energy of sudden change, what they did in years, will be forced to do either and the roof above them come because Aries is impatient and need everything “yesterday.”

Welcome such abrupt changes, but its speed will be that of an express train, because the shed to a vacuum necessary for the new parameters are installed. Must open their hands and drop (especially possessive Cancer and Capricorn), as soon as possible, so as to cushion the shock of change that has begun to manifest. What is not encouraged to drop, they will be uprooted, because it slows their growth and their future.

It is a time of voids, chaos, for the acquisition of new attitudes, new beginnings, of conscious and unconscious processes of change, attachments that are detached in every way. Paradoxically, fear (an attachment) to produce this blue, should be left out, in other words, we must let us undress because radiated energy will put us try another guise, much more appropriate than the last. The tendency will be to protect, hide, hold … just the opposite of what we do.

We now “and” a wonderful opportunity for renewal, in which we voluntarily shed the “baggage” of attachment or otherwise, will be required to do so or, simply, one day we will be naked in body and soul. We must prepare for it, who is not able to, go through traumas instead of accumulating experience, because both combined energies, LIBERTY AND demand. Freedom (Uranus) and (Aries).

Therefore, brothers, in the light, we are blessed by the loss of that which does not suit us, keeping us relegated, and if we feel that we fall into an empty space because the earth has opened at our feet, put our hearts together ethereal at the foot of the Lord, that is blindly trust that just preparing a new acquisition, a new mentality, the chance to tune into the universe, in sync with the clock change, and we will leave it, renewed, freed , and a new consciousness without which we could not survive as humanity.

Whether the couple, work, housing, residence, family, all our human activities must necessarily be updated. The timing of the start of the generational change that will last until mid-year 2018 is upon us. Is TODAY.

Not despair … Uranus does not take but the old, and outdated, the obsolete, which does not serve us even though we are convinced it is. The technology will undergo a sweeping advance, because the bullet train, has already started. Relations with the leadership (Aries) will be questioned (Uranus) and the masses will unconsciously move toward a new awareness of order and leadership.

Something very important that long since I have been suggesting is in theaters: the individual change, to renew itself without the influence of guides and teachers. Each will be from now his own master of change, and those who adhere to be conducted will be seriously disappointed and confused. Time’s up for the Masters, it was time for “Inner Master” as the absolute gift to man, way to becoming the god who always has been.

The man must generate its own decision to change, instead of listening and following the usual spiritual guides, each must follow your intuition (Uranus) to find their own paths of personal growth (Aries), ie, each must be decided to be unique but connected to the collective unconscious that all claim to the change from individual personal change.

This irradiation will undoubtedly be used by the dark in the sense of applying high frequency electromagnetic waves (Uranus) aimed at controlling all thoughts and mental control processes (Aries) and its purposes are unfortunately favored, but will also Fortunately most easily detected by ordinary citizens.

Subliminal programming and all electronic procedures applied to the management of masses will peak in this era, the useful idiots will have to become more useful idiots, while “awake” speed up their process of awakening, your chances of developing intuition and communication with your inner self.

Many accelerate its wake, at speeds that some awake. Many apparently asleep, waiting for the right moment, given the big steps necessary and amazed, we watch them walk past us when we had resigned to leave them behind.

Our phones will become obsolete within months, and mechanical developments will be strongly influenced by electronic advances, possibly in advancing the development of ships whose engines will no longer use conventional but not only electricity from conventional natural sources , but from the energy available in the interatomic spaces. We’ll see miracles in technology that will leave behind the most modern that we know.

The computer will enter a stage through mind control and brain waves, wireless everything an evolutionary leap that will divide the world into two, which are mobilized and are concerned about keeping up to date as possible and those who will live again as in the Stone Age, will separate those who will be the harbingers of a new era, of those who cling to the old cling to outdated systems whose fate will be the rapid elimination.

Spiritually, is sponsored by the rapid development of intuitive and communication mechanisms consent – unconscious, not only personally, but on a mass level, children begin airing thoughts and ideas with each generation in a totally unknown to us the elderly. Act in unison, like birds when they decide to take flight, mechanism impossible to cover by conventional minds.

Education should be urgently updated because these children refused the old teaching methods, and will resist with all their might to go to school where teachers will not be able to understand why the guys “do not want to study” the kids do not want to study because they are fully convinced that the acquisition of knowledge (Aries, head, brain) will not be by conventional means but it will be intuitive or at least by sophisticated computer systems (Uranus) that will allow them to absorb knowledge minutes the “old” We could take days of intense concentration.

They suddenly “know” without realizing how, what has led us years to understand.

This leaves us one way, friends, develop urgently, or go to the caste of the marginalized. The world is separated into two irreconcilable halves: the new, dramatically again in mind-spirit connection, and the old, purely mechanical brain, destined to perish quickly. We have a choice, will dock with the energies of change to speed quickly, or to retreat, to step aside and hope the transition will allow us to reincarnate into new creatures with new potentialities, born in the new era, which began.

Electronics (Uranus) will be the new science that will link the mental mechanisms (Aries) with the spiritual feeling, giving us a golden opportunity to become holistic beings, whose mental vibrations accompany the spiritual pursuit of finding a new path to development.

New pressures felt in the head due to alterations in the nervous system will give us the rates that it is time to dock to change. This change, again, is irreversible and final. Everything old, suddenly, with lightning speed (Uranus) will take a new direction (Aries), and should resonate with it on pain of personal property damage and very serious, losses of those who resist will be unrecoverable.

Let go, folks, as soon as we can, we open the head, the mentality (Aries) to the new sudden changes (Uranus) that come with the speed of an express train. Do not be afraid, is for the good of humanity. Uranus is the planet of freedom, Aries the sign of leadership, the new world, new earth, has just been born. A new era of prodigious miracles has already begun, and will be among us, in the discretion of each fit and be part of it or surrender to be discarded in a world that will not accept old parameters.

Everything has to change, interpersonal relations, labor relations, generational contacts, current technology in use, a new sense of spirituality mating mind-spirit, linkages with extraterrestrial civilizations … with a special component: the old, ancient old will be current, sweeping “new” art.

Lemuria and Atlantis resurface within us and we’ll gradually becoming aware of it. The newly old, perish.

With the highest point to the idea of new roads sponsored by the universe, and to dispel fears that causes any further changes, sponsored a golden age for those who can accept the challenge. Drop, opening the mind, heart, spirit, open feel, free of dogma, fear, blame, prejudice, old beliefs … is the best remedy for the inevitable moments of change that fortunately have already arrived, after being expected for centuries by those evolved souls who have suffered the scorn and ridicule, marginalization and to the fire, not having been included in the time .

The era of the pioneers has come, is knocking at our doors. Heaven and earth have begun to merge.

A hug.

Por Emilio Gallardo, astrologo argentino

El 29 de mayo, el planeta Urano abandonó la constelación de Piscis para entrar en Aries, lo que tiene una gran cantidad de significados y de estímulos para la humanidad.

URANO es un planeta de Aire que pasa a irradiar las energías de Aries, Signo de Fuego. Ya se sabe que el aire alimenta y potencia al fuego, por lo que nos esperan grandes cambios inesperados en distintos niveles; el intelecto(Urano) se ve fuertemente influenciado hacia el espíritu (Fuego de Aries) y los cambios fundamentalmente se verán proyectados hacia Tierra en todas nuestras actividades humanas.

Una nueva era “mente – fuego interior” ha comenzado y no deberíamos sino aceptarla y auspiciarla con todo nuestro corazón y mente, a fin de resonar con la energía que llega desde el exterior.

Los cambios (Urano) bruscos (Aries) ya han comenzado a gestarse. Algunos seres, los más sensibles, ya los estarán experimentando en forma de inquietud mental, de sentir que algo deben hacer pero no sabiendo bien todavía qué es lo que se espera de ellos. Otros, más lentos para reaccionar, se encontrarán de pronto frente a situaciones inesperadas que nunca habían contemplado como posibles, y en ese caso, mi consejo como astrólogo sería “abandónate cuanto antes al cambio, no intentes sostener lo que se cae sino que en lo posible, cuélgate de ello, a fin de que caiga cuanto antes, y no pierdas el tren por intentar sostener lo insostenible”.

Sea lo que sea, en la vida de las personas, que esté ya perimido, habrá de cambiar, inexorablemente. Es designio de las energías del universo y para el ser humano es imposible resistirse.

Grandes pérdidas se registrarán a partir de esta fecha en el orden mundial, pero solamente son movimientos necesarios para que puedan instalarse nuevas propuestas, nuevos movimientos, intelectuales y espirituales. El mundo ya no es el mismo que era en Junio del 2010, algunos lo percibirán, otros sentirán un desasosiego y no sabrán por qué. Aquí quiero explicar la razón.

Los Arianos estarán muy nerviosos e inquietos, así como los restantes Signos de Fuego (Leo y Sagitario), porque son los más sensibles al tipo de energía irradiada; los otros Signos Cardinales (están a 90 grados de Aries (Cáncer, Libra y Capricornio) están irradiados con bruscas energías de cambio; lo que no hicieron en años, se verán obligados a realizarlo ya o bien, el techo se les vendrá encima porque Aries es impaciente y todo lo necesita “para ayer”.

Bienvenidos esos cambios bruscos, aunque su velocidad será la de un tren expreso, porque los arrojará a un vacío necesario para que los nuevos parámetros se instalen. Deberán abrir sus manos y soltar (sobre todo los posesivos Cáncer y Capricornio), lo antes posible, de forma de amortiguar el shock de cambio que ha comenzado a manifestarse. Lo que no se animen a soltar, les será arrancado de cuajo, porque demora su crecimiento y su futuro.

Es una época de vacíos, de caos, necesarios para la adquisición de nuevas mentalidades, de nuevos comienzos, de procesos consientes e inconscientes  de cambio, de apegos que se desvinculan en todos los sentidos. Paradójicamente, los miedos (un apego) que producirá esta situación celeste, deberán ser dejados de lado, en otras palabras, deberemos dejar que se nos desnude porque las energías irradiadas van a probar de colocarnos otro ropaje, mucho más adecuado que el anterior. La tendencia será protegerse, esconderse, aferrarse… justamente lo contrario a lo que debemos hacer.

Tenemos ahora  “YA” una oportunidad maravillosa de renovación, en la que voluntariamente deberemos despojarnos del “equipaje” de apegos o de lo contrario, seremos obligados a ello o bien, sencillamente, un buen día nos encontraremos desnudos en cuerpo y alma. Hemos de prepararnos para ello; quien no sea capaz de hacerlo, pasará por traumas en lugar de acumular experiencias, porque ambas energías combinadas, exigen LIBERTAD YA. Libertad (Urano), ya (Aries).

Por lo tanto, hermanos en la Luz, estamos siendo bendecidos por la pérdida de aquello que no nos conviene, que nos mantiene relegados, y aunque sintamos que caemos en un hueco vacío porque la tierra se ha abierto a nuestros pies, pongamos nuestro corazón junto a los pies etéreos del Señor, es decir, confiemos ciegamente en que sólo se está preparando una nueva adquisición, una nueva mentalidad, la oportunidad de sintonizarnos con el universo, sincronizarnos con su reloj de cambio, y que saldremos de ésta, renovados, liberados, y con una nueva conciencia sin la cual, no podríamos sobrevivir como humanidad.

Ya sea la pareja, el trabajo, la vivienda, el lugar de residencia, la familia, todas nuestras actividades humanas deben necesariamente ser actualizadas. El momento del inicio de ese cambio generacional, que durará hasta mediados del año 2018, ya está sobre nosotros. Es HOY.

No nos desesperemos… Urano no se lleva sino lo viejo, lo ya perimido, lo obsoleto, lo que no nos sirve aunque estemos convencidos de que sí. La tecnología sufrirá un avance arrasador, porque el tren bala, ya ha arrancado. Las relaciones con las cúpulas (Aries) se verán cuestionadas (Urano) y las masas habrán inconscientemente de moverse en dirección a una nueva conciencia de orden y liderazgo.

Algo sumamente importante que hace mucho que vengo sugiriendo será puesto en cartelera: el cambio individual, la renovación por sí mismo, sin la influencia de guías ni maestros. Cada uno será a partir de ahora su propio maestro de cambio, y quienes se apeguen a ser conducidos se verán seriamente decepcionados y confundidos. Se acabó el tiempo de los Maestros, llega el tiempo del “Maestro Interior”, como regalo del Absoluto para el ser humano, camino a volverse el dios que siempre ha sido.

El hombre deberá generar su propia decisión de cambio, en lugar de escuchar y seguir a los acostumbrados guías espirituales; cada uno deberá seguir su intuición (Urano) hacia encontrar sus propios caminos de crecimiento individual (Aries), es decir, cada cual deberá decidirse a ser único pero vinculado al inconsciente colectivo que reclamará el cambio del todo a partir del cambio personal individual.

Esta irradiación, sin duda será utilizada por la oscuridad en el sentido de la aplicación de ondas electromagnéticas de alta frecuencia (Urano)dirigidas a controlar pensamientos y todos los procesos de control mental(Aries), y sus propósitos serán lamentablemente favorecidos, pero también serán afortunadamente más fácilmente detectados por el ciudadano común.

La programación subliminal y todos los procedimientos electrónicos aplicados al manejo de masas tendrán su apogeo en esta era; los idiotas útiles habrán de volverse más idiotas útiles, mientras que los “despiertos” acelerarán sus procesos de despertar, sus posibilidades de desarrollar la intuición y las comunicaciones con su Yo interior.

Muchos acelerarán su despertar, a velocidades que algunos despiertos. Muchos aparentemente dormidos, que esperan el momento propicio, darán el salto cuántico necesario y sorprendidos, podremos verlos caminar por delante de nosotros cuando ya nos habíamos resignado a dejarlos atrás.

Nuestros celulares quedarán obsoletos en cuestión de meses, y los desarrollos mecánicos se verán fuertemente influenciados por los avances electrónicos; posiblemente se avance en el desarrollo de naves cuyos motores ya no serán los convencionales sino que utilizarán energía eléctrica obtenida no sólo de las fuentes naturales convencionales, sino de la misma energía disponible en los espacios interatómicos. Veremos “milagros” tecnológicos que dejarán atrasados a los más modernos adelantos que conocemos.

La computación entrará en una etapa de control mediante la mente y las ondas cerebrales, todo lo inalámbrico dará un salto evolutivo que dividirá al mundo en dos, los que se movilicen y se preocupen en mantenerse al día en lo posible y aquellos que volverán a vivir como en la época de las cavernas; se separarán quienes serán los precursores de una nueva era, de quienes se aferran a lo antiguo apegados a sistemas obsoletos cuyo destino será la rápida eliminación.

En lo espiritual, se auspicia el rápido desarrollo de los mecanismos intuitivos y de comunicación consiente – inconsciente, pero no sólo a nivel personal, sino a nivel masivo, los niños comenzarán a transmitirse pensamientos e ideas generacionales entre sí en forma totalmente desconocida para nosotros, los mayores. Actuarán al unísono, como las aves cuando deciden levantar el vuelo, mecanismo imposible de abarcar por nuestras mentes convencionales.

La educación deberá urgentemente actualizarse porque estos niños rechazarán de plano los viejos métodos de enseñanza, y se resistirán con todas sus fuerzas a ir al colegio donde maestros y profesores no serán capaces de comprender por qué los chicos “no quieren estudiar”; los chicos no quieren estudiar porque están plenamente convencidos de que la adquisición de conocimientos (Aries, la cabeza, el cerebro) no pasará por los métodos convencionales sino que será por medios intuitivos o al menos, por sofisticados sistemas computarizados (Urano) que les permitirán absorber conocimientos en minutos que a los “viejos” nos podrían llevar días de intensa concentración.

Ellos de pronto “sabrán” sin darnos cuenta cómo, aquello que a nosotros nos ha llevado años entender.

Esto nos deja un solo camino, amigos, evolucionar urgentemente, o pasar a la casta de los marginados. El mundo se separará en dos mitades irreconciliables: lo nuevo, espectacularmente nuevo, en unión mente-espíritu, y lo viejo, puramente cerebral y mecánico, destinado rápidamente a perecer. Tenemos la opción, el albedrío de acoplarnos a las energías de cambio que aceleran velozmente, o de retirarnos, dar un paso a un lado y esperar que la transición nos permita reencarnar en nuevos seres con nuevas potencialidades, nacidos en la nueva era, que ya comenzó.

La electrónica (Urano) será la nueva ciencia que vinculará los mecanismos mentales (Aries) con el sentir espiritual, brindándonos la oportunidad dorada de volvernos seres holísticos, cuyas vibraciones mentales acompasen a las espirituales en pos de encontrar una nueva ruta hacia la evolución.

Nuevas presiones sentidas en la cabeza debida a alteraciones en el sistema nervioso nos darán los índices de que es el momento de acoplarnos al cambio. Este cambio, repito, es irreversible e inapelable. Todo lo viejo, de pronto, con la velocidad del rayo (Urano) tomará una nueva dirección (Aries), y deberemos resonar con ello so pena de sufrir daños materiales y personales muy graves; las pérdidas de los que se resistan serán irrecuperables.

Soltemos, amigos, lo antes que podamos, abramos la cabeza, la mentalidad (Aries) a los nuevos cambios bruscos (Urano) que se vienen con la velocidad de un tren expreso. No tengamos miedo, es para el bien de la humanidad. Urano es el planeta de la libertad, Aries el Signo del liderazgo; el nuevo mundo, la nueva tierra, ha acabado de nacer. Una nueva era de prodigiosos “milagros” ha comenzado ya, y estará entre nosotros, en el albedrío de cada uno, acoplarse y ser parte de ella o abandonarse a ser descartado en un mundo que ya no admitirá viejos parámetros.

Todo ha de cambiar, las relaciones interpersonales, las relaciones laborales, los contactos generacionales, la tecnología actual en uso, un nuevo sentido de espiritualidad acoplando mente-espíritu, las vinculaciones con civilizaciones extraterrestres… con un componente muy especial: lo viejo, lo ancestralmente viejo volverá a ser actual, barriendo con lo “nuevo” de última generación.

Lemuria y Atlántida resurgirán en nuestro interior y nos iremos gradualmente volviendo consientes de ello. Lo recientemente viejo, perecerá.

Con la más elevada idea de orientar hacia los nuevos caminos auspiciados por el universo, y disipar los miedos que origina todo nuevo cambio, auspicio una era dorada para quienes sean capaces de aceptar el desafío. Soltar, abrir la mente, el corazón, el espíritu, abrirse a sentir, liberarse de dogmas, miedos, culpas, prejuicios, viejas creencias… es el mejor remedio para los momentos inevitables de cambio que afortunadamente ya han llegado, luego de ser esperados durante siglos por aquellas almas evolucionadas que han sufrido el desprecio y la burla, la marginación y hasta la hoguera, por no haber sido comprendidos en su momento.

La era de los adelantados ha llegado, está golpeando a nuestras puertas. El cielo y la tierra han comenzado a fusionarse.

Un abrazo.

The Missing 222 Years; What is Time?

Someone recently asked me why if some of the sages said Moshiach would come in the 6th millennium, did the tzaddkim say 5778; how are we to account for the missing 222 years.  The concept of time is a difficult one to grasp. Sure, we can all watch the clock and measure out 24 hours in a day, but that’s a man-made measuring strategy, not a spiritual or universal one.  A year is just the measure of time that the Earth journeys around the sun.  So what’s a year in another Solar system? And how is either of those measuring strategies relevant to a Martian?

Einstein brought us space-time, in which time could be bent and stretched like an elastic sheet with a heavy rock placed on it.  Meanwhile, Rav Ashlag explained the kabbalistic approach to time in that spiritual time is measured purely in distance, and distance is measured in similarity of form. Confusing?

What makes time so hard to grasp is that we view it from a very limited perspective, one concretely anchored in the world of Malchut (of matter), and we NEED it to be fixed in order to make sense of our world.

But imagine for a second, if you could let go of all that and allow time to become elastic for you. Imagine the ability to stretch or shrink time at will, to make a single hour long enough to accomplish everything you need to do in a day, a week, or even a year; imagine how far ahead of the game you would be then.

It would be like being in two, or ten, places at once. You could hit a ground ball and be rounding third even before it got to the shortstop because it would be stretched only from your perspective, not his. Think of all the lives you could save and mizvot you could do.

Alas, very few of us possess this ability. Only a very few of us have restricted our physical nature so completely that we’ve achieved the level of mind over matter where we can choose our own reference of time.

Nevertheless, if you’ve recited the Ana B’koach while trying to accomplish something difficult or seemingly impossible (see The Genesis Prayer) you’ve probably seen time and reality shift before your eyes.  I know I have.  So I know first hand that time can be stretched and bent and that Einstein’s theory is real in more than the abstract sense.

Scientists and pragmatists in general have a very hard time with the concept of  a Creation that limits our existence to 5771 years.  They have all the proof their eyes can show them that the universe is 13.7 billion years old and that it’ll last a few billion more give or take.  So for arguments sake, lets say the universe is 13.7 billion of our “limited time frame years” old, so what?

The Zohar tells us the Torah existed for 2000 years before Creation and it never said how long those years were in our time-frame.

Moreover, our time-frame and thus our fixed calendar wasn’t established until the sun and stars were set in the 4th day.  Again, according to the Zohar and the Arizal, the Torah existed in a permuted state that allowed for complete potentiality prior to its fixation  which began with the Bet of Bereshit in verse 1:1. Yet even with the Beginning, only Zeir Anpin and Malchut, the lower 7 dimensions, corresponding to Heaven and Earth were fixed.  Prior to then, all was pure energy, known as Light, the force ultimately responsible for directing matter and thus life, but also the force we can still feel a million times removed, as love.

Those 2000 years could be billions from our limited perspective and they are really more like infinity if the truth be told.  Nevertheless, according to the structure of the Tree-of-Life, all energy(light) is stepped down or diminished in form increments of 10 times, making each level 1/10th that of the level (sefirot or subsefirot (dimension) above it.  Thus on the 1st Day of Creation another 200 spiritual years past, and on the 2nd day, 20 spiritual years past, and on the 3nd day, 2 more spiritual years past.

Thus by the time the Sun was fixed in the sky in relation to the Earth, 2000, 200, 20, and 2 or 2222 years had past spiritually.  Once the sun was fixed, the Earth could complete a trip around it and thus our reference point changed. We were no long surging through infinity, connected to everything and nothing at once; we were separate and isolated.  We aged 1 year from our limited point of view with every encircling  of the Earth around the Sun.

We could track it with shadows and set a calendar to it.

On that day the Sun’s surface temperature was set to the exact number of degrees that would permit life as we know it to flourish on earth: 5778 K

Everything is 2’s in the Genesis: (day and night), light and dark, sea and sky, water and dry land, sea creatures and flying creations, etc.  Spiritually, it takes 2 to equal 1. “It was evening and it was morning, one day.”

Then there’s Adam and Eve, and Noach’s 2 at a time menagerie, Cain and Abel, Isaac and Ishmael, Jacob and Esau. They are all part and parcel of same spiritual concept.

Then two more days past, equivalent to 2 months and 2 days and Adam was created, and our calendar officially began, and so too the countdown to 5778 as prescribed by some of the tzaddikim.

The 5778 + 222 years gives us the 6 millennium, and completes 6000 years, or in gematria, the 6 alephs (elephs/thousands) that appear in the first verse of the Torah, thus establishing Heaven (Zeir Anpin). The 6 alephs are in every word except H’Sham’im (Heaven), reinforcing the point. The also alternatively total 666, which will be relevant in a moment.

According to the Zohar then,there are a total of 2000 + 6000, or 8000 total years until the geula from the true beginning,  though as we’ve discussed not all of these years are of the same length, and the number 8 always connects us to the higher sefira (dimension) of Binah.

Nevertheless, the 222 years are above (spiritual), and kabbalah teaches us that what happens above gets reflected below, so we should also account for 222 years in our world, and we find them in the time of our Patriarchs.

We know that the Covenant of Abraham occurred in 2018 HC and that the Torah specifically tells us the exile in Egypt would last 430 years; that takes us to the year 2448 when the Red Sea was split and the Torah (tree-of-Life) was received at Sinai.  But the Torah also tells us the Israelite left Egypt 210 years after Jacob and his 70 family members entered.

430-210 is 220 unaccountable years, and they are considered to be the 220 of exile in Canaan, part of the full Egyptian exile. Jacob is the key.

He promised to tithe to G-d and then worked for 22 years.  According to the Ari, Jacob was an incarnation of Adam and worked most of his life to rectify the sins of Adam.  As is said by chazal; Adam (ADM) stands for Adam-David-Mosiach and while David’s life falls at the exact midpoint (2889 HC) from Adam (0) to 5778, by tithing those 22 years Jacob saved us 220 years, and completed the full 6 millennium for us.

Now we are ready to understand how Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag and the tzaddikim arrived at the same date of 5778 for the geula and the 3rd opportunity for the Tree-of-life (endless) reality.  According to the Arizal, there is a deep kabbalistic understanding that the upper 1/3 of all and of any of the sefirot are oriented upwards toward G-d and the higher spiritual realm, and the lower 2/3 of them are oriented downward to the self, to our physical world. That is 1/3 = .333 and 2/3 = .666.  Before we explain Rav Ashlag’s computation, please note once again that there are 66.6 jubilee years between the 2nd tree-of-life opportunity (the reception of the 10 Commandments and the Torah) in 2448 HC and the year 5778 HC (2018 CE. This is 3330 of our normal years.

Rav Ashlag separated the 6 millennium (6000 years) into those years dedicated to G-d, and those to the self, thus 2000 and 4000, respectively, giving us a base of 4000 selfish (malchut) years and 2000 years left to purify once again. So taking those 2000 years, then separated them into 666.66 (667) and 1333.33, he came up with a total of 5333.33 base years and 666.66 years left to purified further, which coincidentally coincided with the birth of the Ari, of blessed memory. These final 666.66 years he purified once again into 444.44 base years and 222.22 spiritual ones. This left him with the year for Moshiach at 5777.78 and with the 222.22 spiritual years that as we’ve seen above reflect both the spiritual years before Adam and the completion of the 6th millennium.

6000: 4000          +       2000

2000:   1333.33     +          666.67

666.67:  444.44     +           222.22

5777.78   +          222.22 =  6000

So we’re now comfortably at the full 6000, and according to chazal there will be a 1000 year Shabbat (7th millennium) and then another 1000 year period (forever) of limitless existence, corresponding to the 8th millennium, for a total of physical and spiritual years on this side of Creation of 8000.

If we add that to the 2000 years the Zohar tells us the Torah existed in limitless form before Creation, we have a total of 10,000 years, 1000 years for each of the 10 sefirot: 4222 spiritual ones and 5778 physical ones, or 42% and 58%.

I guess it’s no wonder the 42-Letter Name of G-d is key to Creation and to the geula (final redemption), as advised by chazal, and that the 5-8 combination 58, 58, etc) and ratio (5/8) is central to the structure of the Torah, or that the complete gematria sofit value of the 42-Letter Name is 5778.

Nevertheless, we were discussing time, and we can look at our 5778 physical years as the bottom portion of a bowl, or better yet, of a tall narrow vase with steep side.  To us at the very bottom, time and the passing years appear flat like the earth, but we know that the earth is round and curves at any horizon.

In reality, time does as well, and the curve gets steeper before and beyond the 5778 year period that is soon ending.  At 7 years away, we are still too far away to really see it, but I suspect that soon the curvature will come into view.  As illustrated above, the first 2 seconds will be as 20; the first 2 minutes will be as 200, the first 2 hours as 200o, the first 2 days  as 20000, the first 2 months as 200,000; and the first 2 years as 2 million; and the first 20 years as 20 million; and the first 200 years as 200 million, while the final 1000 and 2000 will be nearly infinite.

You may feel that in the past 60-70 years time has felt as if it’s speeding up what with planes, and rockets, and satellites, and the advent of the telex, facsimiles, cell phones, email, instant messaging, texting and tweeting, but we’re only approaching the event horizon; things will really speed up in the near future.

As time speeds up science and spirituality will converge.  Already, scientists have settled on the 10-dimensional structure of the universe, the same as the ancient kabbalists and Abraham back in 2018 HC when he wrote about them and the 22 building blocks of the universe.  2018 CE is fast approaching; it’s time we all catch-up.

No one should be left behind.

So You Want to See the Tree-of-Life!

There is only one time honored way to see the Tree-of-Life; it’s the one followed by the Kabbalists for generations.  To understand this, you must first realize that we live in the world matter, which is controlled by the natural laws of physics and thus  limited by nature.  The world of the Tree-of-life is pure energy, and whether you are a physicist and believe the the 10 dimensions of string theory culminate in a 3-dimensional energy bundle called matter, or are a Kabbalist and believe that the 10 dimensions (sefirot) of the Tree-of-Life culminate in an energy bundle called Malchut which forms the world of matter, the outcome is the same: a world of limitation influenced and controlled by the invisible energy that surrounds it.

While you ponder which world you’d rather be able to traverse and explore, think of it this way: one super-microscopically small bit of sub-atomic matter is, relatively speaking, surrounded by a near infinite amount of space filled by energy before you reach another minute sub-atomic spec of matter and so on.  And once you look inside those specs you see another endless sea of space and energy before finding an even smaller spec of  sub-atomic matter, and at every level all those sub-atomic, then atomic, then molecular specs are all surrounded by energy, life giving energy.

One more thing to ponder is that  all those minute specs of matter are isolated and super distant from one another, relying on the benevolence of the energy fields to communicate and interact with one another.

Another way to look at it is that our beautiful world (and indeed it is) is even less than pond-scum on a ocean of life-giving energy so vast that it’s far beyond our limited comprehension.

The Kabbalists of yesteryear were not born Kabbalists: they pondered the universe and came away with the choice to join the ocean rather drift upon it aimlessly.  The first step is making a choice, a definitive choice, even if it was nothing more than a leap of faith.

What the Kabbalists realized long ago was that the way to leave the world of matter (without passing away) was through restriction, a process anathema to the world of Malchut (matter).  By completely restricting their selfish desires in every area of their lives and channeling all that resultant energy into sharing (helping others) they became as  energy itself; they transformed their nature (and essence) to one of energy from one of matter.  At that point, they could see the energy itself, the energy beyond the matter, the energy instead of the matter; they could see and thus navigate the Tree-of-Life.

Everything else you can do is just a different aspect of selfish desire, a difference journey through the world of matter.  All the knowledge we and other share and have shared is just to show you that the Tree-of-life exists and that it’s worth the difficult journey (process) to get there.  All the gateways we expose along the way, can only be accessed if you’re on the right path.

Is there a short cut? Moses provided one for the Israelites nearly 66.6 jubilee years ago. B”H Moshiach will provide one for us shortly.  In the meantime, at least there is one proven path that we know we can follow if we so choose: the path of the true Kabbalist, the path of the tzaddikim (the righteous).
