It’s Not Your Imagination; Things Are Heating Up!

Preheat oven to 5778K. Mix all the ingredients for 6 days, let it set, then bake in the speed-of-light convection oven at 173 petawatts for 5778 years until it reaches at temperature of 57.78 degrees. Remove Earth from oven and voila!

We found G-d’s recipe book.

Yes, it’s getting hotter globally. Hottest first  6 months on record and July seems even hotter, but this isn’t the weather channel. We explained last year that the 100-year average surface temperature on earth was headed towards 57.78 degrees and this year that steady rise has shifted into high gear.

When in 5-6 years the average temperature hits 57.78 degrees Fahrenheit, it’ll be numerically exactly 1.00% of the Sun’s surface temperature as measured in Kelvins, 5778 K.

It’ll also be the year 5778 (2018 CE) in the Hebrew calendar, the year prophesied for the coming of the Moshiach (Messiah). None of this is new to readers of this blog, but I did want to add a little more insight toward the bigger picture unfolding around us.

As the tzaddikm were well aware and as is written in the Zohar, Moses was given 173 keys, which really referred to the 42-Letter Name of G-d whose gematria value summed up to 173.  The 42-Letter Name is more powerful than any of us will probably know and I’ve personally have witnessed glimpses of that power and how it bends the so-called natural forces (laws) of our universe, which we call miracles, but we’ve written about that and will do so again elsewhere.  Nevertheless, 173 relates back to the sun, whose surface temperature is 5778 K in that the total energy that the Earth receives from the Sun is 173 Petawatts (a petawatt is a quadrillion [or million billion] watts). Imagine that!

That’s a lot of symmetry, considering that according to the sages, it’s the understanding of the 42-letter Name that will help bring in the Moshiach. But there’s more and there always will be more as we can no more comprehend the scope of G-d’s designs than we can His greatness.  If we take that solar power reaching Earth and divide it by the speed of light (299,792,458 m/s) we get 577065885, which is not exactly indicative of 5778 or even 5777.78. Nevertheless, if in the equation we take the square root of 3 (1.7320508…) instead of the ridiculously rounded off and large 173,000,000,000,000 watts, we get:

 the total energy of the sun on earth = (√3  x 1015)/(speed of light)= 5777.5 x 103

 That the square root of 3 would relate to the 42-Letter Name or this solar equation that brings together the Earth and Sun in some sort of harmonic relationship is not so surprising. After all, the square root of 5 is at the root of the Torah’s design as well as that of everything natural in the universe though the constant Phi (1.618033…), and that the number 5778 is precisely Phi18

No, somehow it all makes sense.  Since the dawn of Biblical creation, the earth will have circled the Sun 5778 times (or Phi18 times), equivalent to the surface temperature of that Sun (5778K), lets say 1 degree for each encircling, and during that period, at the speed of light, the Sun sheds 173 Petawatts of energy on the Earth, warming it’s surface (with our help most recently) to 57.78 degrees F, or .o1 degree for each encircling.  And when we divide that 173 Petawatts of energy by the speed of light which is the speed that energy would have traveled to get to the Earth we see that they are related by a factor of 5777.5

Light, Energy, Heat, Sun, Earth, Time; they are all related, intertwined. And they are all winding down, or winding up to a moment just 5-6 years from now when it will all be clear to us.

While the puzzle is being unfolded around us, the answers as taught by the tzaddikim are not to be found in this world, but in the spiritual one as what is played out here is nothing more than a reflection of a shadow there.  The two artifacts we were given to peer into that world are the Torah and the 42-Letter Name of G-d, which is why it’s at the center of the life-giving transference of the Sun’s power to our planet. And this is why it’s apropos that we reveal it at the time of year we read about the 42 journeys the Israelites made in crossing from Egypt to the Promised Land.

The equations above are more than just numbers; they also represent a formula, or a recipe if you will: Preheat oven to 5778K. Mix all the ingredients for 6 days, let it set, then bake in the speed-of-light convection oven at 173 petawatts for 5778 years until it reaches at temperature of 57.78 degrees.  Remove Earth from oven and voila!

The question is what do we get?

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 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.

The Essence of the Letter Yud; the Power of 10.

All light emanates from the letter Yud(Y).The first line of the Ana B’koach (42-Letter Name) has the numerical value 506, and since the 42-Letter Name of G-d is divided into 14 triplets and there are 506 occurrences of these triplets in the Torah (see The Genesis Prayer), it would appear this is no coincidence.

We’ve mentioned repeatedly that we know from the sages that 506 is the numerical value of “Ahavat Chinam,” unconditional love. And as Zion just pointed on in his comment on our last article that 22 x 23 = 506. What he left unsaid, but is well aware, is that 22 represents the 22 letters (energy bundles) of the alef-bet and 23 is the numerical value of ray (TzYV) or radiation, as in the light of the Shechina. Thus 506 is also the radiation of the 22 letters or energy building blocks that Abraham Avinu tells us in his Sefer Yetzira that the universe is constructed with.

Moreover, the complete numerical value, including the kolel, for radiation of the Shechina (TzYV H’ShCYNH)is 424, the same as that of Mashiach Ben David (the Messiah). Keep in mind that the tzaddikim have told us that it is the understanding of the Ana B’koach (42-Letter Name) that will help bring about the Geula (final redemption) and the Moshiach.

What does this have to do with the letter Yud(Y) and the essence of 10?

Let’s follow the trail of light. According to the Zohar, Peace (Shalom) is the vessel for everything. So far so good; on a simple level, without peace in a marriage or a nation, there is no vessel for holding wealth, health, happiness, fulfillment, in a word, light.

Now let’s take it a step further. The complete numerical value (standard plus ordinal) of Shalom (ShLVM) is 376 + 52 – 4 (kolel for the 4 letters) = 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David (the Messiah) again. So far so good again; the completion of the vessel of Peace leads to the Mashiach (Messiah).

So what does the Moshiach lead to?

So now, let’s take the complete numerical value of Mashiach Ben David (MShYCh Bn DVD) and see that it is 424 + 82 = 506. Thus the presence of the Moshiach leads to unconditional love and the full emanation of the radiation of the Shechina through the 22 letters of the Alef-Bet, in other words, the revelation of the Tree-of-Life reality that is defined by the 10 sefirot (dimensions) and the 22 paths that connect them. The difference between that reality and ours is that we operate in the lowest level of that existence and perceive everything as finite and limited, while in the time of the Moshiach, our perception will open to comprehend the infinite, and we’ll realize there are no limitations, physical or spiritual.

By the way Shalom and Mashiach have the same ordinal value, 52, tying them both spiritually to the emanation of manifestation, known as Ban(52), or Malchut. Meaning that to achieve that ultimate Tree-of-life reality, the vessel for Peace and the establishment of the Moshiach will have to start with our work on the physical plane.

But what of the letter Yud(Y)?

The letter Yud(Y) of numerical value 10 is the first letter of the Tetragrammaton, the ineffable Name of G-d (YHVH) and is always associated with the sefira of Wisdom, Chochma. We’ve previously discussed its associations with the 10 Commandments (Utterances), 10 Plagues, the 10 generations of Adam, the 10 Songs, which are all just manifestations of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-Life.  Indeed, all our mathematics is based on the base-10 decimal system, an those 10 dimensions that the Ancient Kabbalists wrote about are the same 10 dimensions that modern physicists swear comprise the greater structure of the universe.

Nevertheless, the letter Yud (Y) is spelled YVD, of numerical value 20 and when we spell out those letters yet again, forming the 3rd iteration of the letter Yud, they add up to (10+20+476) = 506.

Y

YVD

YVD VYV DLT

OK, we know from the tzaddikim and the Zohar and from the modern mathematicians and physicists that the 10 sefirot (dimensions) expand by the power of 10: 10-100-1000… So considering what we’ve just learned, as the light(energy) of the letter (Y) expands exponentially from 1 to 1000 (Keter) it equates to 506, which is equivalent to the full emanation of all 22 letters and to the emanation of unconditional love and to the manifestation of Mashiach Ben David.

There are 13 letters in this 3-part expansion and 13 is the numerical value of Ahava (love) and Echad (one), as in “G-d is One.” It is not a coincidence that the letter Yud (Y) is the first letter of G-d’s name (YHVH), as the entire name emanates from the letter Yud(Y), and note that this full emanation totals 42 letters in its 3 iterations, forming the Upper 42-Letter Name of G-d.

But back to the simpler expansion of the letter Yud (Y), which totaled 506 numerically. The ordinal value of the 13 letters in the 3 iterations of the letter Yud(Y) is 110, as in the numerical value of Nes (NS, meaning miracles), and as in 10 for each 11 sefirot in the complete Tree-of-life (including Da’at), which incidentally is spelled out in 42 letters. Thus the complete value of the 3 iterations of the letter Yud(Y), is 616, the exact numerical value of H’TVRH, “The Torah,” and also 616 is the number of times the exact name Moses (MShH) is written in the Torah.

So what’s in a letter?

From now on every time you see the letter Yud(Y), especially in the Torah and especially in the Name of G-d (YHVH) you should see the full manifestation of its energy, its radiation, until it encapsulates you and the world and brings about the Moshiach, Unconditional Love, and the Tree-of-Life reality, B”H soon. The message here is that that energy (cosmic imprint) is ever present and only needs to be manifest. We can tap into it at any time.
