The Antidote

The Hebrew word for swine, as in swine flu, is chazir, which can also mean “it will return,” and if we permute the letters we get Raz Chai or the “secret lives.”

A little while back, we were pointing out that many of the depressing milestones of Dow Jones in the latest crises fell on or the day after major Jewish holidays, and even advised to watch out for what would happen on Purim and Pesach (Passover). Well nothing remarkable happened concerning the markets on those dates, but Purim fell in 3/09/09,or as written in Mexico and the rest of the world, 9/03/09, the day little 5 year old Edgar became the first actual case of the Mexican (swine) flu.

903, as most of you know, is the small gematria value of the 42-Letter Name of G-d, where the antidote is hidden in plain sight.

On this past Pesach, we recounted the 10 plagues and we told to remember the entire story of the exodus after the 210 years in exile in Egypt. We also know from the tzaddikim that the 10 plagues are destined to repeat in the end of days before Moshiach (the Messiah) in order to wake us up as they did our forefathers 66.6 jubilee years ago.

Genesis 2:10 “And a river came forth from Eden to water the garden…”

This is he river that sustains life spiritually and physically. This is from where our blessings flow, and as you can imagine a lot of secrets are hidden here. As the Arizal explains, nearly verbatim, the same letters that spell both ‘delight’ (oneg, ANG) also spell ‘plague’ (nega, NGA) are the initials of the 3 words for’ Eden (ADN)‘, ‘river (Nahar, NHR),’ and ‘garden (Gan, GN).’

He further explains that when delight (oneg, ANG) is of the selfish variety it gets spiritually converted to plagues (nega, NGA). What we need to do is reverse the process. This extends to all areas, but he was specifically talking about cleanliness (physical, mental, and spiritual ) in the course of sexual relations, and because of this, and because the source was water, a mikve of sorts must thus be engaged in the reversal process.

And if you recall from The Genesis Prayer, and also from some of our articles, just such a spiritual mikve (ritual cleansing bath) is found in the very center of the 42-Letter Name (Ana B’koach), at the Resh-Zadi (רצ) combination, where the supernal waters of the Well of Miriam flow. We know of many couples who have used this spiritual (virtual) mikve to conceive righteous children, and others who have used it for ruach hachodesh (divine inspiration), but today we’re concerned with protecting ourselves from the enveloping pandemic that’s quickly blanketing the world, and this Resh-Zadi (רצ) gateway/mikve is only the preparation for the actual tool.

To the true kabbalists the letters are tools to be permuted in the right combinations to unlock myriad gates of wonder. This one found in the heart of the 42-Letter Name is to help us convert plagues into delight by neutralizing them on a spiritual level. And at the heart of the matter, and the source of plagues is zarat Ayin,צרת עינ , jealous eye, also know as evil eye since our jealousy for one another causes evil to befall us and them, and prevents us from loving our neighbor as ourselves which is the key to reaching the tree-of-life reality, the reality beyond limitations that exists once we can perceive the 10 sefirot (dimensions).

And we find just this combination of letters sequentially beginning with the Resh-Zadi (רצ) mikve combination.

And oddly enough, the Name of G-d even provides us with clues so we don’t miss it. The word Bat (בט) is concealed twice within the middle of the 42-Letter Name and the word Bat (בט) in Hebrew means to look, see, regard, or to consider.

And when we “look” what we see immediately following them the letters in zarat בטרצתג, and then right beneath them we have חקבטנע with the subsequent letter yud (י) on the next line giving us all three letters in ayin, thus giving us zarat ayin, “jealousy” delineated by the two bats (בט).


בטרצתג

חקבטנע

יגלפזק


Thus we have רצתגעני , which very simply permutes into zarat Ayin צרת עינwith the Gimmel (ג) of Gan (garden, גנ) and of Nega (גנע) and Oneg (ענג) right in the middle: .רצתגעני

Therefore, the antidote to help us fight the plague and convert it to delight is to remove jealousy from our hearts, and the tool to help us with that is

אבגיתץ

קרעשטן

נגדיכש

בטרצתג

חקבטנע

יגלפזק

שקוצית


And as in the first of the modern plagues, where compassion would have been the antidote to the housing and thus financial crisis, love is the answer here to, as the final letters in the sequence are gimmel-yud (יג), whose numerical value is 13 as in the Hebrew word for Love (ahava), which is also found in the middle of the 1st line of the 42-Letter Name, the line whose full value is 506, that of “unconditional love,” the real answer.

אבגיתץ

And not coincidentally both those bats (בט) convert to gimmel-yud (יג) when one is added to the cipher.  So let’s wake up, use the tools and find it in our hearts to actually love one another and begin to live the tree-of-life reality before it’s too late.

The Mexican Flu: The Second Plague?

Some are suggesting the Mexican Flu is the second plague. Who is to say? It might even be the third with the first two being different (and very ongoing) aspects of the current financial crises. There are some interesting coincidences though.

But first of all, let’s be clear: The Mexican Flu is for real. There are millions of Mexicans staying home and off the streets right now and it’s not from hysteria. There is an alarming large rate of healthy people dying in Mexico after contracting this highly contagious version of swine flu AH1N1. And all the signs point to this being the one, just like its predecessors in 1918, 1957, and 1968 that killed millions of healthy people.

Here in the US, we first learned of this pandemic on Saturday (Shabbat) when the NY Times published a front page article explaining that 61 people had died already in Mexico. Obviously that number 61 was shifting and by Sunday it was 81 and then over 100 by Monday; nevertheless the published figure on the Shabbat that we read the portions Tazria and Metzorah, where we discussed plagues (nega) and their spiritual causes, it was 61.

Now, back in our articles on the 10 plagues we revealed that the sum of the first letters of all 10 plagues was 541, the numerical value of Israel, and so it’s mighty coincidental that this week we have the 61st anniversary of Israel.

But of even further coincidence is that the dates of the previous swine flu epidemics vis-a-vis 5778, the date given by the tzaddkim (righteous) for the geula (final redemption) are the Spanish Flu in 1918, exactly 100 years before (2018 CE) 5778; and the Hong Kong Flu in 1968, exactly 50 years prior to (2018 CE) 5778; and the Asian Flu in 1957, which is exactly 61 years prior to (2018 CE) 5778.

As of today, Monday, the Mexican flu strain has spread to NY, TX, CA, KS,, OH and to both coasts of Canada. If this is the big one, it will be the 4th in the final 100 hundred years, the first one having occurred exactly 2 jubilee years before 5778 and the last one, having occurred exactly 1 jubilee year, out of the exactly 66.6 jubilee years (50 year interval as spelled out in the Bible) between the Exodus (10 plagues) in 2448 and 5778.  All together, vis-a-vis 5778, the 3 deadly pandemics occurred 2 + 1.22 + 1 = 4.22 jubilee years before 5778, and 422 as readers of The Divine Calendar know, is the numerical value of “seventy,” as in the 70 years that Israel will celebrate in 2018 CE (5778).

And if in this year of our 44th US President, who had just held court in Latin America, the Mexican Flu of 2009 is the 4th one, then all 4 deadly Flu epidemics will have occurred exactly 4.4 jubilee years before 2018, with 44 being the value of the first plague, dam (blood), and also the ordinal value (placement within the Hebrew alphabet) of the initials of all 10 plagues. The 2nd plague by the way, was frogs (tzarfdea) of numerical value 444.

You can decide for yourself if there are any connections. Back in 1918, between 20 and 40% of the world became infected and 25 million or more people died; today, our scientists and medical staffs are much better prepared.   In this week that the 61st anniversary of Israel is celebrated and the 4th epidemic of swine flu was announced and pronounced to the world, it’s interesting for Torah scholars and kabbalists alike that the Hebrew word plague (nega, NGA) is repeated 65 times (or 61 + 4) in this week’s double reading.

But what’s better than interesting is that the  Arizal and tzaddikim have provided us a spiritual antidote for plagues hidden within the 42-Letter Name of G-d (Ana B’koach or Genesis Prayer), but more about that in out next article.

One last note for those that believe like the kabbalists that there are spiritual causes behind the worlds physical ills, this same weekend also brought NY Times articles to the effect that the Wall Street and banking bonuses are already back up to their pre-crises levels.  Now what was it that the Bible said about “hardening Pharaoh’s heart?”
