## Color My World

The seasons change and so do the colors. Why? Sure, there is a scientific biological reason and it’s not really open for dispute, but there is a spiritual reason as well.  Everything in our world runs in cycles, usually cycles of 7, and there is a time for everything, as in the 28 times of Ecclesiastes (3: 2-8), and depending where you live there are 4 very distinct seasons.

So why then the colorful change during the different seasons and why are we mentioning it in a kabbalah blog?

Because color is nothing more than differing frequencies of light and light is nothing more than a stream of photos, which are energy bundles, ergo colors are just reflections of differing frequencies of energy, the same as the Hebrew letters.

Our ancestors knew this, which is why when the Israelites built the Pyramid that built it to reflect the spectrum of light.  The most basic measurements of the Pyramid are its height, exactly 210 holy cubits, and its base, exactly 330 holy cubits.  We’re calling them holy cubits because this cubit (27.5 inches) is the one based on G-d’s name, (YHVH) and designated for the Future Temple, as we’ve discussed in our prior articles. Nevertheless, given only 210 and 330 and the 10 dimensional structure of the universe agreed upon by both most modern physicists and the ancient kabbalists, we find that:

1/(330*102) = 1/33,000 inches (the exact wavelength for red light)

and

1/(210*330) = 1/69300 inches (the exact wavelength for violet light on the opposite side of the visible light spectrum).

And by the way, 210 + 330 + 1 = 541, the numerical value of Israel, at the center of the visible frequency scale.

Be that as it may, our world was created for us and there is meaning and purpose in everything in G-d’s Creation. Everything was put there to support us, including the colors. We actually need the energy available to us in the colors, and there is an easy way to tap into that energy. If you live in a area where the leaves change colors you especially need to tap into them before winter arrives, no different than the squirrels need to hoard acorns.

So what do we do?

Very simply, you want to spend some time outdoors, stare in he direction of whatever color pops out as brightest, and allow your eyes to soften their focus. Soon the colors will intensify. Just allow yourself to absorb them.

You can do this for a few seconds, or you can doing a full meditation or Ana B’koach–all depends on your desires. In the Fall, I’d do this with as many different colors as I could find, intense reds, yellows, oranges. Winter will be here soon.

In the Spring, or in an area of perpetual green, focus on the bright light green, yellowish new growth; the energy will rejuvenate you.  While hiking in the Cascade Mountains, inspired by the beauty and the waterfalls, I went a few miles too deep and had exhausted myself, with sundown fast approaching. In a few seconds of soft focus, the green forest was ablaze of bright light green rejuvenating energy.  And after only a couple minutes of relishing in this energy, I quickly retraced my trail and beat the sun.

And by the way, the colors of sunset and sunrise, give us those bountiful same energies, just in time to begin our days, and our nights.  As for the blue frequencies, we have only to look up to the sky. Take advantage and enjoy all that was given to us.

We were given this world, let’s make the most of it. Getting in tune with it, is a great way to begin.

## The Secrets of Light from the Summit of Stone

Taking it slow, let’s examine a little closer only one aspect of Joseph’s Pyramid (the Great Pyramid), its glimmering capstone. Its full (missing) capstone is 7 levels high, stretching from the 203rd level to the tip of the 210th, completing the tip the sword (ChRB), whose numerical value in Hebrew is 210, just like that of “the mountain (HHR).”

And while it is well know that the end of the first exile occurred after 210 years in Egypt the Zohar informs us in Pasha Toldot, (Midrash Hane’elam) Section 8, #71 that in regards to the resurrection the righteous will rise up 210 years before everyone else.  With the pyramid, we have that figure preserved in stone.

It’s interesting that the capstone was mysteriously removed long long ago, because, now, if you’d look straight down over the top of the pyramid you’d see a square 32 feet by 32 feet in the exact middle of it, just as you would if you did the same with the Holy Temple.  The square central alter in the center, or heart, of the Future Holy Temple is 32 cubits by 32 cubits.

As we’ve said previously, this makes sense since 32 is the numerical value for the Hebrew word for heart (LB), representing the 32 Paths of Wisdom, which form the Tree-of-life.

And since the Torah begins and ends with the letters Lamed (L) and Bet(B) as in LB (heart), and since there are exactly 32 x 32 word values in the Torah, which is also 210 , analogous to the 210 levels, this structure makes perfect sense from a holistic and comprehensive divine point of view.

And as light flows down from the apex, cascading down the 4 steep highly polished sides of the pyramid, so too did the light (water) flow down the 4 rivers from Gan Eden (Bereshit 2:10) and from the Holy of Holies of the Future Temple through the 4 Names (Aspects) of G-d.

The 4 bases of this capstone, like the 4 bases of the pyramid itself, vary slightly, with the average being about 32.0833 feet, 32 and 1/12 feet or exactly 14 cubits, making the height of the capstone 20.42 feet and the apothem just about 26 feet give or take less than half an inch, with 26 being the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).

Now there are 201.1 cubits to this 203rd level, 203 being the numerical value of the Torah’s first 3 letters (BRE), leaving 7 additional levels to the apex and since 2011 plus 7 equals 2018, as in 2018 CE, it matches up with the Hebrew year 5778 dictated by the pyramid’s height in inches. But more significantly, and more precisely, the ratio of the height and base of the capstone to the height and base of greater pyramid itself is 4.2424% giving us 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David (the Messiah).

Yes, this is no coincidence.

# Light and Dark

Let’s consider the aspect of the “Light” synonymous in Kabbalah with G-d (Hashem) and the structure of Joseph’s Pyramid. But first know this: The Zohar, in the paragraph that immediately proceeds the one quoted above regarding the 210 years, Toldot, (Midrash Hane’elam) Section 8, #71 tells us that “ ‘let there be Light’ (Bereshit 1:2) which means let there be secret, because light is the secret of redemption…” That understood, we know the most basic measurements of the Pyramid are exactly 210 holy cubits for the height and 330 holy cubits for the base.  We’re calling them holy cubits because this cubit (27.5 inches) is the one based on G-d’s name, (YHVH) and designated for the Future Temple, as we’ve discussed in our resent articles. Nevertheless, given only 210 and 330 and the 10 dimensional structure of the universe agreed upon by both most modern physicists and the ancient kabbalists, we find that:

1/(330*102) = 1/33,000 inches (the exact wavelength for red light)

and

1/(210*330) = 1/69300 inches (the exact wavelength for violet light on the opposite side of the visible light spectrum).

What chance is there that this too is coincidence?

Or that the sum of the base and height in cubits (330 + 210) equals 540 and when we add 1 of the kolel we get 541, the numerical value of Israel.

Now, as we’ve explained, the capstone is exactly 14 cubits wide and 14 is the gematria value for David (DVD) and yad (YD), meaning hand, as in the hand of G-d, so how odd is it that 541 cubits is 14, 877.5 inches or 14 with 5778 reversed, the date Rav Yehuda HaLevi Ashlag of blessed memory gave us for the end of the 4th exile. (See The Divine Calendar).

Not to get too technical, but the number 14 is the 3rd square pyramidal number, meaning it takes 14 units to construct a 3 level square pyramid, and the Magen David, (the “Shield of David), is a perfect symmetrical 12-gonal star, indicating these numbers spiritually were chose not by simple mathematical chance, but for the esthetics in their geometric symmetry and how their energy unfolds in our world.

Moreover, 541 is the 10th centered 12-gonal number, a fancy way of saying a symmetrical 12-sided polygon made up of 541 geometric units, and given Jacob’s (Israel’s) 12 sons as heads of the 12 tribes of Israel, it’s not an insignificant construction or consideration. There is nothing in the universe that does not have a specific purpose.

That all said, the square root of the 541 cubits in feet is 35.210 and while 35 is exactly 1/6th the pyramid’s height of 210 cubits, the 35th level of the pyramid is a big delineation point in its structure.

At the 35th level, the height of the masonry is purposefully twice that of the average and surrounding layers, making it stand-out like a wide stripe or band around the pyramid. Being that it’s exactly 1/6th the way up the structure , its therefore also 5/6th the way down, indicating a possible construction analogous to the 6 sefirot (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin. Furthermore, this 35th level just happens to be exactly 50 inches thick (high), which is yet another allusion to Binah and the 50-year jubilee period. (see our previous article: Mountain of Stone).

Moreover, the 35th level up is necessarily the 175th down, corresponding to the 175 years of Abraham’s life, the first of the Patriarchs to visit Egypt.

So once again we ask the questions: Who built the pyramid in Egypt and why?

We can plainly see that the structure itself is all about light and elevation and the end of exile (all four of them), and the Biblical word for Egypt, Mizraim, is synonymous with darkness, so obviously the pyramid wasn’t created by elements of darkness.  Moreover, it obviously served as a beacon of light amongst the darkness, figuratively, and literally with its highly polished gleaming sides, so perhaps we intuitively know why it was built there. It would even look like a flaming sword, but more on that later.

By cloaking it in a veil of darkness, is it possible that G-d tricked the forces of evil and gave us a lasting testament to His Glory (Kavod-numerical value 32) that survived the four exiles mostly intact. You can decide for yourself who built it then.

And let’s keep in mind that our goal in examining the existing great Pyramid is to better understand and prepare ourselves for the Future Temple and the Tree-of-Life reality for the Zohar in the same section quoted above tells us the Future Temple will precede the geula (final redemption) and that doesn’t give us a lot of time to prepare.

In our next article we explore the secret entrance to the pyramid and the mysteries that it holds.
