The Energy at the Dawn of Creation.

The Arizal explains that the Zohar tells us that the Torah existed for 2000 years before Creation, and that it existed in a form in which all the 79,976 letters would appear to be jumbled to us today.  In other words, what is written in the Torah and was frozen in time once the letter were rearranged to form the narrative we know today, was formerly written in a potential state, whereby the events of our Biblical past could have played out differently.  Adam didn’t have to sin.

Nevertheless, he did, and we have to struggled and fight our way back to the Tree-of-Life reality that existed prior to that initial sin.  As part of that process (the easy part) we study the secret coding of the Torah (Sod Torah), which R’ Abulafia of blessed memory calls the deepest level of Torah understanding (that we’re capable of at any rate).

But what are we really doing when we examine the gematria and the permutations of the letters and words of the Torah?

Yes, we are revealing the underlying technology that the Torah was designed with, and occasionally by doing so, yes, we are revealing hidden blessings, prayers, and specific gateways. And yes, with each revelation into the magnificence of the Torah we bring more awe of the Torah and G-d into our lives and the world and thus bring ourselves and others closer to G-d ( a thoroughly worthy cause unto itself).

But what are we really doing when we rearrange the letters according to ancients codes that seem to exist before time? At times, it feels like all the letters of the Torah are on stone wheels, each with all 22 (or 27) letters embossed on the–79,976 wheels in all.  At other times, it’s as if the Torah was an enormous multi-dimensional matrix, with gateways and portals  appearing at the intricate junctions and apexes, each leading us to other portals.

But what are we really doing?

When we reveal and understand the codes that permute the letters, we are in essence re-scrambling the letters to the primordial state they were in before creation, to the state of potentiality. We are connecting ourselves to energy of purity that existed before the sin of Adam, to the energy of the Tree-of-Life. We are connection ourselves to the energy that knew no limitations, the energy that houses all possibilities.

What is this like?

It’s like converting the aging cells of our bodies back to pure undifferentiated stem cells that still have to potential to be anything our bodies need, that are young, disease free, and full of youthful health.

This is what we are really connecting to.  What we do with that energy is up to us.

As for the state of the Torah before Creation, we know, for sure, of the formal order of at least 42  of the 79,976 letters, the first 42.  Prior to Creation the first 42 Letters of the Torah were the 42 letters of the Shem MB, the 42-Letter Name of G-d, which is known as the Ana B’koach. This is why when we do the Ana B’koach (See the book The Genesis Prayer), we often see miracles; we are connecting to that primordial energy of pure potential, which means our reality can shift instantaneously.  This is the power of the Tree-of-life.

When we were given the Torah everything was already set (fixed), and both time and a time-frame indelibly established, events had already played out and future events had already been determined. But…

But we were also given, a gateway out (beyond). Adam left Gan Eden with the Ana B’koach, the 42 letters that tap into  the energy he was forced to leave behind. That 42-letter matrix is still here with us today, and still access all that beautiful potential energy. It is our key back in.  As the Zohar puts it, it is the 173 keys to Heaven given to Moses (the small gematria of the 42 letters totals 173).

This is why we study the codes.  It’s all about the Tree-of-Life.

What the 10 Sefirot Reveal?

Tonight is the hillula of the Arizal, one of the greatest kabbalists of all time and to whom we owe most of our understanding (even if only on a limited basis) of the Tree-of-life. It is in his merit that we share today new revelations about the Tree-of-life. And as Abulafia said, nothing gets revealed without heavenly permission; everything in its time. As you’ll see now is the time. Rabbi Chaim Vital of blessed memory, the Arizal’s prized student and redactor, explained that the Tree-of-life was directly connected to the 42-Letter Name through the 10 sefirot (dimensions and 32 Paths of Wisdom that interconnect them, but it seemed in conflict with other commentary that described it was 10 sefirot and 22 linkages for a total of 32. Nevertheless, what neither he, nor anyone that we know of, has ever written about is that the 42-Letter Name also connect to the Tree-of-Life through the 42 letters in the 11 Names of the sefirot (including the all-important balancing dimension of Da’at, located between Chochma and Binah).

Now, we can’t tell you how they interact–anymore than Chaim Vital did over 400 years ago–but we do know, as the sages have told us, that it’s the understanding of the 42-Letter Name that will bring the geula (final redemption) and we can show you how the 42 letters of the 11 Names in the Tree-of-life mathematically spell out the date for the geula, the same date given to us by Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag, of blessed memory.

But first let’s examine what a little understanding can connect us to. First and foremost we must understand that, as explained by Abraham in his Sefer Yetzirah, the Hebrew letters are the building blocks of the universe and that how they recombine determines both the physical and spiritual (energetic) structure of the universe, so they are a lot more than squiggles on a page. Every word and name they form has significant individual meaning with far-flung consequences we can’t see nor fathom. And it’s only through the translation of gematria and simple mathematics that we get even a glimpse into that deeper meaning and purpose.

The 11 Names of the sefirot that make up the dimensional structure of our greater universe (Keter, Chochma, Binah, Da’at, Chesed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod, Yesod, and Malchut are spelled in Hebrew:

CTR

ChCMH

BYNH

DAT

ChSD

GBVRH

TGERT

NZCh

HVD

YSVD

MLCVT

It’s well known from the writings of the Arizal that the initials of these sefirot (without the inclusion of Da’at connect to the 5 letters of the name Israel through it’s value (541+5 = 546), and some people know that the first 4 initials of the upper sefirot (Keter, Chochma, Binah, Da’at) add up to 32, as in the 32 Pathways themselves. But what no one has written about that we know of is that there are 11 sefirot, 22 outer letters in the 11 Names, and 20 inner letters, and that the ordinal value for the letter C, T, and R, spelling Keter (CTR) are 11, 22, and 20; therefore, it’s through the spelling of these 11 Names that we can eventually connect to Keter, the crowning sefira.

And the timing for accessing that crowning level is found within the numerical value of the first and last letters of the 11 sefirot: 1985 plus 32 for the kolel of the 32 Paths equals 2017 (5778). Morever, the total value of the 42 letters in the 11 sefirot is 3342 and 3342- 11 (kolel) = 3331. And 3331 years (66.6 jubilee years) from 2448 HC, when the Israelites left Egypt and received the 10 Commandments, equals the end of the year 5778 and a new beginning, for it’s in the beginning where we found the 42-Letter Name and the Tree-of-Life.

Ezra

A similar parallel exists between the structure of the Tree-of-life and 10 plagues that preceded the last opportunity we had for achieving the Tree-of-life reality.

The 11 initials of the 10 plagues numerically equate to 541, the numerical value of Israel. The last two initials of the 11 words in the 10 plagues are M-B, as in the Shem MB, the 42-Letter Name. And with that, we’ll segue into the hidden spear in Washington DC that also points to 2018 (5778 HC) in our next article.
