Shining The Light

I haven’t written much this week. I’ve been too busy cleaning and cleaning. Every Pesach (Passover) we invite Eliyahu Hanavi and H’Mashiach into our homes and lives and if we’ve made the proper environment for them they will come.

This Erev Pesach we will be doing the Blessing on the Sun, whose brightness burns at 5778 K. As previously discussed, the Blessing of the Sun connects us to creation and the first 28 letters and/or 7 words of the Bible. This special Blessing happens only every 28 years, and we will be entering the 207th cycle since Creation and 207 is the gematria of “Light.” This Pesach, more than any other since the exodus 66.6 jubilee years ago, a great light will be revealed (the process will begin), and while the darkness easily hides our filth, impurities and sins, in the bright light of the Sun all gets revealed.

This Torah portion, not by coincidence is Tzav, and its all about the cleansing of our souls, which by the way is not what Mashiach is coming to do. He is coming to help elevate them; we must do the cleansing first.

The portion (parsha) Tzav discusses the purification process that Aaron HaCohen and his sons had to go through in order to do their jobs in the Tabernacle as channels for all of Israel. This process lasted 7 days, and on the 8th is the final completion, which we’ll read in the next portion, Shemini (the Eighth). Of course, this is akin to the process of the Brit Milah and the circumcision (the removal of the negativity on 8th day).

The process of the 7 years will begin this Pesach, making the 8th year, the Brit (Covenant) of Moshiach in 5777.78-5778.28 HC (2018 CE), the same years as G-d’s Covenant with Abraham (2018 HC).

So if the prophesies of the tzaddikim are correct, the process of the cleansing of our world and souls in order for the Light of Moshiach to be fully revealed will take 207 (Light, Ohr) cycles of 28 years plus 7 years, which fully reflects the 28 letters and 7 words of Creation.  It’s then that we add the 1 (One) for the 1st verse, and can receive the One.

So with the Light about to intensify greatly, I’ve been spending my time cleansing. The process of 7 and 1 (the 8th day/year), is the process of  the physical and the spiritual.  We must work through the first 7 sefirot (dimensions) before we get fully disembodied and get beyond the influence  of negativity, which is why we must cleanse for 7 + 1 days.  This is why we must eat Matzah and not chametz for 7 + 1 days during Pesach.

Our homes are metaphors for our bodies and both of them are vessels for our souls, which have inner and surrounding Light, one metaphysically being the vessel for the other.  Any chametz in our homes  and bodies will be revealed by the great light to come, and will be reflections on our souls.  Every room relates to a different part of our body, and different aspect of our soul.  Every window and doorway is another portal of our soul. Floors and ceilings; malchut and keter.   And the dirt in the deepest cracks is the blockages built up in the deepest recesses of our minds and souls.

Even if this wasn’t the final cycle, a great Light is revealed every Pesach , which is the only reason that Pesach occurs when it does every year.

So clean, clean, clean, and bring the spiritual into your physical world.  As you clean, meditate that every bit of chametz you are wiping and washing away is an impurity and blockage from your body, your relationships, and your soul.

The portion Tzav begins with the phrase that makes the unification of the spiritual and physical words we’ve already discussed, “G-d is speaking to Moses.” He’s also speaking to us.  We can bridge the gap.  He’s given us the spiritual technology and all the tools to reveal it.  If we reverse the letters of Tzav, we get the numerical value of 906, which is not only when King David was born, 906 BCE, but the numerical value of the last line of the 42-Letter Name (Ana B’koach).

Do the physical cleansing.  Do the meditations to make your efforts pay off on multiple levels. And do the Ana B’koach, concentrating on the last line (ShKVZYT), the one aligned with the energy of manifestation/David and Mashiach who will manifest through the House of David.  Remember, when you clean your house, you are also cleaning His.  If you do it with that as your consciousness, all your blockages will be removed and you’ll bask in the Light, rather than burn.

Shabbat Shalom
