Creation by Design; Renewed Every year.

As we complete the 22 days of the holidays and reestablish the relationship between the Zeir Anpin and Malchut (Heaven and Earth so to speak) for another year, we read once again the story of Creation. Before even finishing the holiday, just after we finish the 7th hakifot (encircling) with the lulov and doing the 7 hakifot with the Torah, both associated with Zeir Anpin, we read the first 32 verses of Creation, the verses that establish the 7 days of Creation.  This is of design, not convenience.

The 32 verses of Creation, as well established by Chazal, connect to the 32 Paths of Wisdom, the Tree-of-Life. And as we explained in a previous post, similarly the ordinal value of the word Lulov, which is 32, does as well, and moreover, they both connect to the Alter at the center of the Third Temple, which measures 32 x 32 cubits.

What was not previously explained was that the 6 verses in which each of the first 6 days were completed in, thus establishing the 6 sefirot (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin, are the verses #5, 8, 13, 19, 23, and 31 of the Torah’s first chapter. The numbers 5 + 8 +13 + 19+ 23 + 31 = 99 and in the 1st verse of the 2nd chapter G-d completed Creating Heavean and Earth, plus 99 + 1 = 100, a level of perfection kabbalistically speaking, but also the square of 10 (sefirot) and the complete value of the word Lulov, (68 + 32 = 100), and also the measure of the inner courtyard surrounding the Alter at the center of the Future Holy Temple, 100 x 100 cubits.

This also corresponds to the sum of the ordinal values of the first 10 letters of the Torah (BREShYT BRE E) “In the beginning was created Alef:” 2+20+1+21+10+22+2+2+1+1 = 100, once again perfection and the square of the 10 sefirot.  And it should be noted that teh composite value of the letter Alef is 32, which is why it’s associated with the Tree-of-life.

As we said, when we complete the 7th day, Malchut, firmly establishing the 7 sefirot and 7 days of Creation in the 1st verse of the 2nd chapter, we have a total value of the verses as 100 which corresponds to the 100 blowings of the shofar on Rosh Hashannah that began the Holiday process 22 days ago.

This is all by design to reestablish our connection to the Tree-of-Life EVERY year, every year through the period of the Third Temple, which according to the prophecy of the tzaddikim should happen in about 7 years from now (around 5778).

Please note that 5778 is 66.6 jubilee years from the reception of the Torah at Sinai in 2448, and we mention this because as was explained in book The Genesis Prayer the number 5913 is also derived from a beautiful equation based on the 7 days of Creation and the kabbalistic principal that energy is never lost.

Before we get into the equation please note that in the 6 days of Creation there are 66 times the letter combination for the word “sea” appears (YM) of numerical value 50, the same as the length of the jubilee year, 50 years.  According to chazal, whenever we see the combination (YM) as in Elohim (ELHYM) it represents the sefira of Binah (understanding).

And as for Elohim (ELHYM) it is found 32 times in those same verses of the 6 Days of Creation. Whether it’s the lulov, or the Torah or the Alter in the Future Holy Temple, we’re tapping into the Tree-of-Life , and drawing the light (energy) from Binah through the 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin into the 7th, Malchut, the world of matter and limitation.

Abraham, the Patriarch, taught us in his Sefer Yetzirah several thousand years ago that 7 factorial is 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 5040, and when we apply that to 6 factorial and again for each of the 7 days of Creation and then add them together, we get (5040 + 720 + 120 + 24 + 6+ 2 + 1) = 5913 and even more significant, we know that the 10 Commandments and thus the 2nd opportunity of the Tree-of-Life reality was received on Shavuot 2448, or the exact Western date 5/9/1313 BCE (some say 5/9/1312 BCE, but it’s still 5/9/13).

Of further note is that 7 factorial and 6 factorial together total 5760 and (5 and 4 factorial) = 144 and (5 and 4 and 3 and 1 factorial = 151.  So, while 5760 is the year 2000 CE, the spiritual cleaning bath, or mikve has the numerical value of 151 (same as the higher name of G-d, Ehyeh) and it contains 40 seah each of 144 eggs, for a total volume of 5760 eggs, as prescribed by chazal.  It was based on this calculation for the mikve and divine inspiration that Rav Abraham Azulai of blessed memory, prophesied that the  Geula/Moshiach  process would begin in 5760 (2000 CE) and this period of Oy and Ashray could conceivably last for the 18 years until 5778 as fits the other prophecies, especially since the square root of 18 is 4.24, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David.

Everything is by design.

When the Wisdom Hits our Hearts.

Last Rosh Hashannah (5769) we pointed out that the Dow sank 777.78 points erev Rosh Hashannah to begin the new year. And the pattern of symmetrical and numerically significant numbers found in the closings of the US financial market—all related to the year 5778—on major Jewish Holidays continued through to Pesach, when the markets stopped plunging and reversed course.  This, as has been explained in previous articles, coincided with the arrival of Mashiach consciousness during the Pesach cleansing process.  Since then there have been no significant numerical alignments with the markets, until this Rosh Hashannah 5770, when the DOW closed down .42% to settle at 9,778.86
So what does this herald? And what relationship can be drawn between 5770, 9778 and 5778?

The 86, as the numerical value of Elohim, and the 42, as in the 42-Letter Name of G-d—both connected to Creation—and also the synergy with 778 are all obvious, but in the year 5770 the 9 in 9778 plays a part too.

Throughout this past year we’ve spoken about the significance of there being 9 years until the final redemption at the end of 5778 in the year 2019, and we’ve explained about the 8 final years until the Brit of Mashiach as advised by the tzaddikim, which is to occur in 5778 (2018), as revealed to us by Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag of blessed memory.

But the answer about the 9 lies in the Hebrew spelling of 5770 and in the “generations of Adam.” You see Lemekh was the 9th generation in the lineage of Adam and he lived 777 years. Lemekh (LMC) is a permutation of the word Melech (MLC), the Hebrew word for King, a hint of what is to come after 5777 and the 9th year.

Nevertheless, setting aside the 5, as is customary in spelling out Hebrew years, we have 770 as Tav-Shin-Ayin (TShA) which is spelled the same as the word tesha (TShA) the word for “9” in Hebrew. And when we permute the letters we get ShAT, Hebrew for “right now” The letters (TShA) are also the route letters for teshuva, repentance, or more literally and spiritually, “returning’ to the beginning.

So putting it together we have a message that 9 years from now, we have a returning to the beginning. We also have a juxtaposed message that the repentance (returning) must be done “right now” in order to elevate those that are already connected to the 9th level (sefira/dimension), that of Chochma/wisdom.

Moshiach is here already for those that can see, but for everyone else, the time frame given for King Moshiach is 5777-5778 and the final redemption 9 years from now. Nevertheless, it is “right now” when we must start connecting to the Tree-of-life. When we permute the letters again, we get shata (ShTA), meaning “to be afraid,” which is what we will be if we don’t begin to connect, and it also address our fears of connecting right now.

The fear is about letting go.  The hardest thing to do is to jump blindly, yet this is what is being asked of us.  No matter how bad the situation is we all hold onto what we have for dear life, which is why the 9th gate is wisdom.

The wisdom will reveal that which we cannot see with our eyes.  But we must then bring the wisdom into our hearts if we are to truly accept that there really is another reality out there. And then led by our hearts we can let go.  And we must.

I experienced Rosh Hashanah this year with over 3000 very committed and loving souls and it was wonderful, but when we got to the Amidah, the silent connection when we reach out to G-d by ourselves, something happened to me.  It was at the special prayer, or opportunity, for a spiritual wish that we get to make only a few high times of the year. We have the choice to pick from asking for sustenance, ruach hakodesh (divine inspiration), or righteous children. I knew I was asking for ruach hakodesh, but read through the choices to make sure I wasn’t reciting the wrong one, when it hit me hard that people need all three, why should they be limited.  And I cried. I cried for the people that didn’t have these choices, that had lack in their lives. And I cried and cried and couldn’t stop. The floodgates were open and my heart poured out for them.

That is what is meant by bringing the wisdom into our hearts, I was crying—my soul was crying—because I knew they could have it all; in the Tree-of-Life reality everyone has it all.  We all know this in our souls; now we have to connect to our them.  When we can feel the love for one another that we have for our kids then we will know that we’re connected and that we need no longer fear letting go.

Another permutation of TShA is AShT, ashet, “to grow fat” and this year some will and it will be at the expense of the many that wont. One way or another we’re going to be forced to feel the pain of others.  Because if the Creator wants us to jump, eventually we’ll jump, and hopefully it’ll be of our own free choice and through our hearts, and not because dire circumstances leave us no other choice.

May this be the year we all take the leap and climb onto the tree waiting for us beyond our vision.  Shana Tova

With Love,

Ezra

Head of the year; and understanding the Astrology of the Sefer Yetzirah, Abraham’s Book of Formation

The cosmos are ruled by the letters
G-d moves through the 12 palaces throughout the year, starting in Nissan (Aries), the 1st month
Each Palace is built with 7 revolving letters (blocks) (pe, resh, tav, bet, gimmel, dalet, caf) with always a specific one crowning it,
crowning letter:
Nissan, Aries: 1st Month: dalet
Iyar, Taurus: 2nd:month:pe
Gemini: 3rd month: resh
Tamuz, Cancer: 4th month: tav
Av, Leo: 5th month: caf
Elul, Virgo: 6th month: resh
Tishrei, Libra 7th month: pe
8th month: dalet
Sagittarius 9th month: gimmel
Aquarius: 10th month: bet
Capricorn: 11th month; bet
Adar, Pisces:12th month:gimmel
The numerical sum of the 7 letters, called doubles, is 2016, tantalizingly close to 2018, the year prophesied for the arrival of the Mashiach, the Messiah
The palaces are located around a circle and are divided into bands represented by the same crowning letters. When you put the months around the circle with Aquarius and Capricorn at the top (the winter solstice) and Cancer/Leo at the bottom, the banding becomes obvious
Bet—-Bet
Gimmel—Gimmel
Dalet———Dalet
Pe—————-Pe
Resh———Resh
Tav—-Caf
Interestingly, the months that pair off are the:
1st and 8th = 9
2nd and 7th = 9
3rd and 6th = 9
4th and 5th = 9
10th and 11th = 21
9th and 12th = 21
21-09
The total numerical value of all the letters in the Torah is 2109826 and there are 2109 gimmels (each of the value 3) in the Torah
The bands further combine to form bonding relationships, such as the bottom band having the value 420, or 10 x 42 (Mem-bet)
the Pe and Resh bands combine to form Pe-Resh (Bull) and its numerical value is 280, as in the value of the special 5 final letters that control/represent judgment.
the Pe and Dalet bands combine to form Pe-dalet (redemption) with the value 84, as in 2 x 42 (the two drops from above, the 42 letters in the Name of G-d)
etc
The value of each of the 12 palace rings is 709 which is analogous to the value (708) of the upper 42 letters of the Name of G-d, plus the kolel.
Ringing the palaces are the 12 sequential letters (blocks) he, vav, zayin chet. tet. yud, lamed, nun, samech, ayin, zadi, koof
These match up with the 12 months and their crowning letters
Nissan, Aries: 1st Month:       dalet-he
Iyar, Taurus: 2nd:month:         pe-vav
Gemini: 3rd month:               resh-zayin
Tamuz, Cancer: 4th month:     tav-chet
Av, Leo: 5th month:                 caf-tet
Elul, Virgo: 6th month:            resh-yud
Tishrei, Libra 7th month:          pe-lamed
Cheshvan, Scorpio: 8th month: dalet-nun
Sagittarius 9th month:           gimmel-samech
Aquarius: 10th month:             bet-ayin
Capricorn: 11th month;            bet-zadi
Adar, Pisces:12th month:      gimmel-koof
In the center of these rings is the revolving ring (ball) of the 3 mother letters (Aleph-Mem-Shin)
When the Aleph lines up with the Lamed and PE of the month of Tishrei, we get Aleph-Lamed-Pe (ALP) or Aleph, the first, which is why Rosh Hashannah, the head of the year is the 1st of Tishrei, technically the 7th month.
If we assume that the ring of 12 letters is actually 12 rings of 12 letters, connecting to the palace ring at 12 specific points then there are a total or 12 x 7 letters plus 12 x 12 letters plus 3 letters (blocks) or a total of 231 letters (blocks), which is analogous to the 231 gates of wisdom, which is the number of connecting lines drawn between 22 points on s circle. The total value of these letters is 14420.
