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.

What was in the Beginning?

“In the beginning…”

What was there in the beginning?

The world was without form and empty, so what was there?

There were four things within this emptiness: The spirit of G-d hovering on the waters; the 42-Letter Name of G-d, the 22 letters (building blocks) and a timetable (time frame) for them all to work in.

These four aspects of G-d combined in instant precision to form the Torah and all our physical and metaphysical existence, heaven and earth. But what were these four aspects?

The Spirit of G-d on the waters is a metaphor. Obviously, waters didn’t exist before existence, but imaginary concepts did, things like the mathematical and physical constants like Pi and Phi, which turn two dimensional objects into three dimensional ones by curving space, and which fashion growth into manageable spiraling patters so they don’t spiral out of control. To us, these are numbers, but before they were assigned an endless stream of numbers for each minor iteration of physical action that they controlled, the constants were formless concepts, ideas in the imagination of G-d, ideas that when laid out simultaneously formed a sea of potential that when finally combined with the right concepts of energy bundles formed the universe nearly instantaneously.

The 22 Letters, as briefly explained by Abraham in the Book of Formation, the Sefer Yetzirah, are the 22 building blocks, subdivided into 3 sets: the 3 Mothers (E,M,SH,); the 7 doubles (B,G,D,C,P,R.T); and the 12 elementals (H,V,Tz,Ch,Tt,Y,L,N,S,A,Z,K). These building blocks of distinct energy bundles–hence their distinct numerical values–combined and recombined to form physicality, and every which way they are combined takes on a life and meaning of its own. Think of it as being reflected in humans: You have your own personal energy and attributes; then combined with your wife’s, you form a pair with different attributes and new potential; then you become a family and that potential grows and gathers new attributes, even changing your own original personal ones; then you join different communities and social groups and you then impact on society in different ways, which then shades the understanding and interpretation of your attributes. If you look inward to the eusocial community that are the cells of your body you’ll see the same set up. Look to the atoms, or the cosmos and it is still the same.

Shortly, we’ll publish an article to the site on the exact structure of these building blocks and what Abraham meant when he assigned specific ones to the planets and constellations and told us that they controlled our destiny, because they do not combine randomly and G-d did not leave everything to chance. They are set in specific rings which rotate in sequence. The 12 rings of the 7 doubles for instance need 6 full rotations to complete their cycle, making a total of 42 clicks to complete their cycle. The Mothers and Elementals each need 22 clicks to complete there cycles, and if we add these 86 clicks, with all the cyclical ordinal values of all the letters (as will be explained in said article) they add up to exactly 5778. So far, what we’ve been seeing are the hands on G-d’s clock, and sometimes just the cuckoo popping out of the clock, what we’re now privy to is the mechanism within the clock–the gears and ratchets. To most, who just want to get through life, concentrating on the obstacles thrown at them one at a time, they don’t need that privilege. For those who think there must be more to life and want to understand, there is now a means.

it is a tenet of spirituality that nothing is ever lost, once it goes from potential state to physical it exists forever, which is why so many of the Torah mathematics include the sum of all the integers through a specific number–none of the previous integers that got you to that point had been lost.  That said, the sum of the integers through 22, in other words the real numerical value of 22, is 253 and 2 x 253 = 506, the value of the Hebrew word for “Unconditional love.”  It is also the value of the first line of the 42-Letter Name, and is also the value found 3 times sequentially within the last 7 letters of that same Name.

Moreover, 253 x 22 + 212 = 5778 and 212 is the numerical value of H’Or, “The Light”

The 42-Letter Name is a multi-dimensional matrix, a scaffolding that the letters adhered to in a specific sequence, some visible to us, some not. It’s small gematria numerical value is 173, and it is the 173 keys that were given to Moses that opened the various gates of heaven to him. When the matrix is completely unfolded it is the Torah.  It comes to us simply as the Ana B’koach, and not so simply, as you can imagine such a potent tool as the entire Torah folded up into 42 visible letters would be, it can help us receive all the miracles in life we need by bending reality for us, folding up time and space, exactly as it did for Jacob and his sons. If you haven’t experiences this for yourself, or haven’t experienced it enough, you should start by reading The Genesis Prayer. After that, many deeper secrets will be revealed to you throughout this blog and many more gateways will be available to you. Indeed, the more you understand the 42-Letter Name, the more gets revealed to you anyway. I’m not saying that it is a substitute, but it’s like studying Torah on a deep level and studying a multitude of portions at once.

Until recently G-d’s timetable (or time frame) has been known to only a very select few. Now, as you can read for yourselves in The Divine Calendar and There’s Nothing random about the Universe, it’s available for all to see. So 13.7 billion years were folded into 6 days of creation, get over it; it doesn’t mean anything. That it is 13.7 speaks for itself, as this is the numerical value (137) of kabbalah, meaning to receive. The time frame is 5778 years from the Biblical Birth of Adam to the arrival of Mashiach (the Messiah) and the end of days. It has been written into the Torah, into all our mathematical and physical constants, into the 22 building blocks, and since the complete sofit numerical value (nominal and ordinal together) of the 42 letters in the 42 Letter name of G-d add up to 5778, it’s been written into the Shem Mem-Bet (Ana B’koach) as well.

Even multiply 42 x 137 and add 22. or more specifically 42.173 x 137, and what do you get?:5777.7 or 5778.

So why make all this available to us now?

Because G-d has a plan. He always did. And He wants us to know that. It’s always darkest before the light. Darkness always precedes the Light, like Bohu (chaos) before the Light in Genesis, Nachor and Haran before Abraham, Ishmael before Isaac, Esau before Jacob, all brothers, but all must absorb the darkness and be separated out like the chaff from the wheat, and incidentally (B,N,H,Y,A), the 5 Hebrew initials of their names sum to 137, while the Initials of the 4 Names Light, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (E,E,Y,Y) add up to 22. Do you recall the odd story from pasha Lech Lecha of 5 kings verses 4 kings and the 4 Kings winning? It’s all planned.

Besides being a precursor of our tribulations in present day Iraq (and the tar pits in the valley of Siddon/Saddam), this battle was a metaphor for the victory of the Light then and also in the end of days. And it’s not coincidental either that 137 + 22 = 159, the small gematria value of the 42 Letters of the Name of G-d (the upper Mem-Bet).

Oh, and if you don’t think this had anything to do with our present tribulations of our Kings getting stuck in the tar pits, please review Bereshit 14:2 and the names of the 5 Kings, Bera, Birsha, Shinab, Shemeber and the King of Bela: (BRA, BRShA, ShNEB, ShMEBR, and BLA). What do they all have in common?

The letters in common to all 5 names are Bet and Shin as in Bush. Is it any wonder that both Presidents Bush were compelled by fate to enter the battle against evil. The other common letters BRA, BRShA, ShNEB, ShMEBR, and BLA) are Resh (R) and Ayin (A) or RA, evil. It could also be Ayin-Resh (AR), meaning enemy or even vigilant. The remaining letters spell El, Amen.

It’s all been written: 22 letters, blown by the spirit of G-d and lining up on the scaffolding of the 42-Letter Name and the Torah to spell out the details of the time-line.

And as per our post titled Halfway Point it’s the 5 final letters, assocaited with judgment that will pave the way to the final redemption in 5778, which is yet another connection to the epic Biblical battle detailed above. But speaking of letters, in our next post we’ll show the symmetry and perfection in the spelled-out forms of their names and their obvious connection to 42, Mashich Ben David (424) and the year 5778.
