The Secrets of Light from the Summit of Stone

Taking it slow, let’s examine a little closer only one aspect of Joseph’s Pyramid (the Great Pyramid), its glimmering capstone. Its full (missing) capstone is 7 levels high, stretching from the 203rd level to the tip of the 210th, completing the tip the sword (ChRB), whose numerical value in Hebrew is 210, just like that of “the mountain (HHR).”

And while it is well know that the end of the first exile occurred after 210 years in Egypt the Zohar informs us in Pasha Toldot, (Midrash Hane’elam) Section 8, #71 that in regards to the resurrection the righteous will rise up 210 years before everyone else.  With the pyramid, we have that figure preserved in stone.

It’s interesting that the capstone was mysteriously removed long long ago, because, now, if you’d look straight down over the top of the pyramid you’d see a square 32 feet by 32 feet in the exact middle of it, just as you would if you did the same with the Holy Temple.  The square central alter in the center, or heart, of the Future Holy Temple is 32 cubits by 32 cubits.

As we’ve said previously, this makes sense since 32 is the numerical value for the Hebrew word for heart (LB), representing the 32 Paths of Wisdom, which form the Tree-of-life.

And since the Torah begins and ends with the letters Lamed (L) and Bet(B) as in LB (heart), and since there are exactly 32 x 32 word values in the Torah, which is also 210 , analogous to the 210 levels, this structure makes perfect sense from a holistic and comprehensive divine point of view.

And as light flows down from the apex, cascading down the 4 steep highly polished sides of the pyramid, so too did the light (water) flow down the 4 rivers from Gan Eden (Bereshit 2:10) and from the Holy of Holies of the Future Temple through the 4 Names (Aspects) of G-d.

The 4 bases of this capstone, like the 4 bases of the pyramid itself, vary slightly, with the average being about 32.0833 feet, 32 and 1/12 feet or exactly 14 cubits, making the height of the capstone 20.42 feet and the apothem just about 26 feet give or take less than half an inch, with 26 being the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).

Now there are 201.1 cubits to this 203rd level, 203 being the numerical value of the Torah’s first 3 letters (BRE), leaving 7 additional levels to the apex and since 2011 plus 7 equals 2018, as in 2018 CE, it matches up with the Hebrew year 5778 dictated by the pyramid’s height in inches. But more significantly, and more precisely, the ratio of the height and base of the capstone to the height and base of greater pyramid itself is 4.2424% giving us 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David (the Messiah).

Yes, this is no coincidence.

Light and Dark

Let’s consider the aspect of the “Light” synonymous in Kabbalah with G-d (Hashem) and the structure of Joseph’s Pyramid. But first know this: The Zohar, in the paragraph that immediately proceeds the one quoted above regarding the 210 years, Toldot, (Midrash Hane’elam) Section 8, #71 tells us that “ ‘let there be Light’ (Bereshit 1:2) which means let there be secret, because light is the secret of redemption…” That understood, we know the most basic measurements of the Pyramid are exactly 210 holy cubits for the height and 330 holy cubits for the base.  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 resent 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).

What chance is there that this too is coincidence?

Or that the sum of the base and height in cubits (330 + 210) equals 540 and when we add 1 of the kolel we get 541, the numerical value of Israel.

Now, as we’ve explained, the capstone is exactly 14 cubits wide and 14 is the gematria value for David (DVD) and yad (YD), meaning hand, as in the hand of G-d, so how odd is it that 541 cubits is 14, 877.5 inches or 14 with 5778 reversed, the date Rav Yehuda HaLevi Ashlag of blessed memory gave us for the end of the 4th exile. (See The Divine Calendar).

Not to get too technical, but the number 14 is the 3rd square pyramidal number, meaning it takes 14 units to construct a 3 level square pyramid, and the Magen David, (the “Shield of David), is a perfect symmetrical 12-gonal star, indicating these numbers spiritually were chose not by simple mathematical chance, but for the esthetics in their geometric symmetry and how their energy unfolds in our world.

Moreover, 541 is the 10th centered 12-gonal number, a fancy way of saying a symmetrical 12-sided polygon made up of 541 geometric units, and given Jacob’s (Israel’s) 12 sons as heads of the 12 tribes of Israel, it’s not an insignificant construction or consideration. There is nothing in the universe that does not have a specific purpose.

That all said, the square root of the 541 cubits in feet is 35.210 and while 35 is exactly 1/6th the pyramid’s height of 210 cubits, the 35th level of the pyramid is a big delineation point in its structure.

At the 35th level, the height of the masonry is purposefully twice that of the average and surrounding layers, making it stand-out like a wide stripe or band around the pyramid. Being that it’s exactly 1/6th the way up the structure , its therefore also 5/6th the way down, indicating a possible construction analogous to the 6 sefirot (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin. Furthermore, this 35th level just happens to be exactly 50 inches thick (high), which is yet another allusion to Binah and the 50-year jubilee period. (see our previous article: Mountain of Stone).

Moreover, the 35th level up is necessarily the 175th down, corresponding to the 175 years of Abraham’s life, the first of the Patriarchs to visit Egypt.

So once again we ask the questions: Who built the pyramid in Egypt and why?

We can plainly see that the structure itself is all about light and elevation and the end of exile (all four of them), and the Biblical word for Egypt, Mizraim, is synonymous with darkness, so obviously the pyramid wasn’t created by elements of darkness.  Moreover, it obviously served as a beacon of light amongst the darkness, figuratively, and literally with its highly polished gleaming sides, so perhaps we intuitively know why it was built there. It would even look like a flaming sword, but more on that later.

By cloaking it in a veil of darkness, is it possible that G-d tricked the forces of evil and gave us a lasting testament to His Glory (Kavod-numerical value 32) that survived the four exiles mostly intact. You can decide for yourself who built it then.

And let’s keep in mind that our goal in examining the existing great Pyramid is to better understand and prepare ourselves for the Future Temple and the Tree-of-Life reality for the Zohar in the same section quoted above tells us the Future Temple will precede the geula (final redemption) and that doesn’t give us a lot of time to prepare.

In our next article we explore the secret entrance to the pyramid and the mysteries that it holds.

Sukkot is Upon Us.

We’re going in a new direction soon and will begin explaining the meaning and significance of the dimensions of the Third Temple. All the proportions we’ve learned about through the Torah, the Names, and the universal constants will have new meaning as we explore the place where all the Shefa (life-force) flows through into our world. Before the Third Temple can be constructed we must understand it. It already exists spiritually, but just knowing the dimensions and erecting stone walls won’t do it. We have the knowledge and it’s coming time to apply it. When we take the process and the knowledge run it through our hearts we will connect to the Tree-of-Life, the greater universe, the Cosmos, and the Holy Third Temple. And then it will be time.

A long time ago, I promised to explain and expand on Abraham Avinu’s layout of the Cosmos first delineated in his Sefer Yetzirah, and now we will do so in the context of the Holy Temple’s design. G-d willing, we will all understand.

When Noach sent out the dove 3 times to find dry land it was an allusion to the 3 Holy Temples, and to the 3 times the numbers 5778 and 2019 appear in the first 1000 (Aleph) digits of Pi (See There’s Nothing Random About the Universe).

It’s almost time to let the dove loose again. There is a lot of work to be done this year and the holiday of Sukkot is almost upon us. They are calling for rain in New York and that’s not good. We’re going to need the power of the sukkah and of the unifications we can make in it in order to do our work properly so we’re going to need everyone’s consciousness in a place of unity, love, and sharing to stave off the rain this year. Let’s all spend the next few days thinking, speaking, and listening through our hearts and the blessings will come to all.

I’m repeating and updating below an article posted a year ago to explain many of the secrets and kavannot of the shakings of the lulov within the sukkah. This year, if we shake with our hearts we will shake the world awake. Let’s do it together.

The Shakings

Regarding the daily shakening of the four species, they would seem to correspond to (5 sets x 6 directions) the 30 blasts of the shofar, and the numerical gematria value (30) of the large Lamed (connected to Binah) in the Torah. Lamed has the numerical value of 74 or 70 +4, which as you’ll see later, representing the 70 Nations and 4 species.

That Lamed connects to the Lamed of Lulav. It’s also the Lamed that along with the letter Pe controls the month of Tishrei (Libra), according to Abraham Avinu, in which we do both the shofar blowings and the shakings. It’s also the lamed of the word aleph (ELP, the first), and when the controlling letters of Tishrei are completed with the letter Aleph (Aleph-Lamed-Pe), they connect to both keter and the beginning, as in Aleph B’Tishrei (permutated to spell Bereshit, the beginning).

With the 3 shakings per direction, corresponding to the 3 beats per type of blast of the shofar, there are 18 total shakings per set, and as Rav Abraham Brandwein points out, “The Lulav hints at the vertebral column that has 18 vertebrae and every movement indicates vitality. Thus all 4 species need to be damp and alive and not dry.” The 18 corresponds to the value of the word, chai, (life). And straightening this connection is that the word value of lulav is 68, as in chaim (life)

With 18 shaking per each of the 5 sets there are 91 total shakings per day, which corresponds to amen and teh all-important unification of G-d’s Names that it represents (YHVH-ADNY ) and to the value of the word Succah itself.

Moreover, at 30 daily shakenings x 7 days, there are 210 total shakings, as in the 210 years of Egyptian exile. And when the 3 shakings per direction are considered, there are 210 x 3 or 630 total shakings in the 7 days. 630 is 10 x 63, the value of the Tetragramamton in the aspect of Binah. The 10 always corresponds to the 10 sefirot (dimensions) and in this case to the 10 sub-dimensions (inner sefirot) within Binah. During the entire process of Sukkot, we’re drawing down the energy from Yesod of Ima (Binah) so the Binah connections are very fitting and part and parcel to the technology involved in the shakings.

Over the 7 days of Sukkot, we’re making 70 sacrifices to share the energy with the 70 nations of the world. Each of these sacrifices corresponds to a specific one of the sub-sefirot in order as we descend through them during the 7 day period.

Regarding the four species: As we know from the Arizal, the four species correspond to the Tetragrammaton (YHVH): Hadas (Yud), Aravah (Hei), lulav (vav) and Etrog (hei). So since the numerical values of Hadas and Aravah = 346 (Shmo), the two species above correspond to Y-H Shmo (the Name of YH), as in 5 of the 6 letters that occur at the top of the 248 columns of the Torah that are not vavs, excluding the initial Bet of bereshit. But the three sides of the sukkah itself forms the shape of the letter Bet, completing the B’Y-H ShMV sequence.

The missing Bet from the B’Y-H ShMV sequence would also appear to be the Bet in lulav (LVLB), since the word lulav represents teh whole Torah in two different ways in that it begins with (L) and ends in (B) and also ends in the letter combination Lamed-Bet (LB), as in the first (B) and last (L) letters of the Torah. This letter reversal is an allusion to the recycling of the Torah that occurs during this period when we read the last verse of the Torah and immediately twist it back to the beginning and read from Bereshit.

Moreover, the numerical value of Hadas and Aravah and lulov together = 414 (kaddish) or 2 x 207 (the numerical value of Or/light), and thus twice light, representing the running and returning light

And as in known from chazal, etrog has the value 610 as in parnesa (sustenance) and ma’aser (tithing) and their various meditations for drawing the Shefa into our lives. The Etrog corresponds to the malchut of yesod, the place where we earn our parnesa (sustenance).

But the total value of the 4 species = 1024, which is 256 x 4 with 256 being the value or the Ark of the Covenant (also Aaron) and 1024 being both 210 as in the 210 years of exile yet again, and also 1024 represents the 1024 unique word values in the Torah, which is not coincidence and not coincidentally 32 x 32 which when we study the structure of the Third Temple, we’ll understand how they all relate and relate to the 32 paths of the Tree-of-Life.

Furthermore, as we meditate on ending the 4th exile by sharing light with the 70 nations through the 70 sacrifices, it’s appropriate that the sum of the 4 final letters (B,G,H,S) in the names of the 4 species add up to 70, while that of the Hadas and Arava alone add up to 65, the numerical value of Adonai.

And it’s almost needless to mention that the end of the 4th exile is supposed to happen 70 years after Israel became a nation in 1948 (5708)

Interestingly, and not coincidentally, the sum of the ordinal value of the 16 x 4) letters in the names of the 4 species is 151, as in the value of the Name, Ehyeh (EHYH) spelled out (milui) and also of the word, mikve.
Moreover, the sum of the ordinal value of the letters in lulav is 32, as in the numerical value of the letters Lamed and Bet (LB), which spells Lev, the Hebrew word for heart, and as previously mentioned the last and first letters in the Torah. Yet another connection to the 32 paths of Wisdom, which is in essence the Tree-of-life, represented by the lulav, whose standard gematria value is 68, that of chaim (life). And note that the Inner Courtyard of the Third Temple is 100 cubits by 100 cubits and the Alter in the center of it is 32 x 32 cubits, leaving space of 68 cubits all around.

Moreover, when we add Lulav’s standard value and its ordinal one, we get 68 + 32 = 100, the value of, sach (SCC), the very important roof (covering) of the Sukkah and the representation value of keter, the highest sefira.

So when we shake the Lulav we not only want to bring it back to our heart but we want to mediate the light and love channeling back and forth through it, as we stand both in our succahs and in the center of the Third Temple

Now, if we add all the elements of the holiday together, we get 100 (Sach) + 91 (sukkah) + 1024 (4 species) = 1215. There is a reason for 1215 but we wont go into it now, but when we take away 1 for the kolel, and get 1214, much of the technology gets revealed:

For example the 11 unique letters used in creation of the first verse of the Torah connect with the 11 dots above the letters that occur in the same parsha (portion) as the large letter lamed, and together they help us convert curses into blessings through the 11 incenses (etc). These 11 unique letters have a complete value (ordinal plus standard gematria) of 1214, and 1214 is the exact numerical value of “70 languages” (ShBAYM LShVNVT), corresponding to the 70 nations for whom we’re making the sacrifices. Also, 1214 is the exact value for the Hebrew phrase (ZYRVP HEVTYVT) meaning “permutation of the letters.”

Now, while the last of the 11 letters in the words under the 11 dots is the letter ayin, with a value of 70, the complete value (standard and ordinal) of all 11 letters under the dots is 422, which is the exact numerical value of the word “seventy (70)” (ShBAYM). These, of course, connect to the destruction of the first Two Holy Temples in –422 BCE and in 70 CE, respectively, as is detailed and chronicled in The Divine Calender.

It’s also not a coincidence that the letter ayin, with a numerical value of 70, has an ordinal value of 16, as in the 16 letters of the 4 species discussed above.

In case it’s not understood, it is our responsibility to mediate on sharing this light with the 70 Nations, and this is why we were blessed to be the channels and given these magnificent divine tools to use. As it says in Isaiah 56:7, ” I will bring them to My holy Mountain and make them rejoice in My House of Prayer…For My House will be called the House of Prayer for all the nations.”

Sukkot is the time of joy, when the energy of rejoicing is drawn down upon us by our actions within the succah for the whole year. Let’s do all we can to spread that rejoicing to the entire world.

The Chosen Ones! Who Me?

We are the Chosen Ones. What does it mean to be chosen?

My wife wasn’t feeling well the other day and when I left to drop my son off at a play date, I told my daughter she was in charge while I was gone. She immediately said, “Then I’m the boss,” so I explained to her that it meant that she had to take responsibility while I was away (45 minutes), not that she could boss anyone around.

A leader leads by example, not by decree. And that goes the same for a people (the chosen ones). We have to take responsibility for what’s happening all around us and to personally work to fix it, without telling anyone else what to do.  If we can then inspire them to voluntarily help us, we will then be leaders.

We haven’t done that.  Moses did.  King David did.  The Baal Shem Tov did.  And a long list of tzaddikim understood that and did it on a smaller scales. But is anyone today doing it? Is anyone ready to step up?

The Geula (final redemption) will happen for those that are ready and have accepted the Tree-of-life reality, but for the majority it won’t, just like at Mt Sinai, as we’ve explained in numerous articles already. G-d provides cosmic windows for things to happen and either we’re ready and prepared for them, or we’re not.  No one can just appear and do the work for us.

Think about it, if that we’re the case, why make us wait? If we weren’t going to change on our own anyway, why wait until now, the year 2500 would have been just as good a time.

It’s not about waiting for Moshiach (the Messiah) to come; it’s about becoming like the Mashiach.  Those that have consciously accepted and prepare themselves for the Tree-of-life reality will step through it when the cosmic window opens.

But how do we reach the millions that don’t realize that, and are waiting for someone to do it for them? And if we don’t try to reach them, what does that say about whether we’ve fully embraced the Tree-of-life consciousness or understood the essence of the Torah, with its over-riding principle to love they neighbor as thyself.

We’ve been told Moshiach Ben Joseph will come first. Will he? It depends on us.  Any one of us can stand up and become the leader that the world needs.  If he steps up and takes responsibility, and inspires many others to follow and to take responsibility themselves, who would argue that he wouldn’t be Moshiach Ben Joseph.

Then the way will be paved for Moshiach Ben David to take us the rest of the way.

As the cosmic window of opportunity opens for us, someone needs to fulfill that mission, if not the 50th gate will close again.  Back at Sinai, in 2448, we were at the 49th gate, which not coincidentally was the 49th jubilee year (50-year Biblical period) since Adam.

As we finish our 5769th 9th of Av, we are reminded of the destruction of the First Holy Temple in 3338, 66.6 jubilee years after the sin of Adam, and are reminded of the darkness that comes from choosing the Tree-of-knowledge-of-good-and-evil over the tree-of-life.  Now, 66.6 jubilee years after the revelation and opportunity at Sinai, we face the choice again.  5778, the year known to the tzaddikim, is just around the corner.

When that 50th gate swings open will we go through as a tiny group, or as a whole people? Will we go through at all?

The First Holy Temple was destroyed in –422 BCE, and as readers of “The Divine Calendar” know, 422 is the gematria value of   “Seventy(70).” The Second Holy Temple was destroyed in 70 CE.  In 5778, the nation of Israel will be 70 years old, the age that King David died; will we go through the gate as a nation, or let fear, doubts, and hatred grip us as in the past?

We each have a choice to make.

It’s up to each of us to take responsibility and to step up, and for one of us to take it to heart and step higher, inspiring the rest of us to follow in his beautiful footsteps. Let’s all take that first step, and then the second to make it easier for him—9 years is not much time to work with and we all have a long way to go.

Let’s not waste anymore time.

Shabbat Shalom

The Tabernacle and the Name 42

Have you ever wondered how we know so many of the secrets that you haven’t been able to find elsewhere? Ask yourself where we started our journey?

In this week’s Torah portion (Pekudei), referring to the redemption, the Tabernacle, H’Miskan (HMShCN) was built and there’s lots to say about that, but for now we’ll be brief.  Like so much more in the Torah, it connects to Creation itself and to the very first verse of the Torah, and that verse is derived from  the  42-Letter Name (Ana B’koach) .

As these excerpts from Zohar (The Book of Splendor) explain, it was only through the letters of the 42-Letter name that the Mishkan was built, and only because Moses possessed the 173Keys (the 42 Letter Name, of small gematria 173) that he was able to erect it.  But first, did you notice that the first 3 letters of H’Miskan (HMShCN) spelled out Moshe (MShH)

Zohar Pekudei 272. “This is the mystery-why the tabernacle was erected only by Moses, since from that side of Moses (Zeir Anpin), another high grade, Binah bestirred itself to establish the tabernacle, Malchut, so there will be sustenance for all. This is the secret of  ‘and Moses erected the Tabernacle’ erecting it by these letters with which heaven and earth were created, referring to the Name of 42.”

Zohar Pekudei 273.

“So Betzalel carried out the work of the Tabernacle using the secret of the engraved letters with which heaven and earth were created, namely the Name 42….Unless he knew them, he could not have dome the work in the Tabernacle. The sense thereof is that as the upper Tabernacle was built, and all its actions done, only by the secret of these letters, of the Name 42, so here is the  Tabernacle below, nothing was built save by the secret of these letters.”

Zohar Pekudei 273.

“Betzalel was combining the letters of the Name 42, and did the various works with different combinations of thereof. He used each combination to do one task, and all that pertains to it.  And so with all the works in the Tabernacle, together with its parts and amendments, he used combinations of the letters of the Holy Name 42.
If the 42-Letter Name could build the Tabernacle, which brought sustenance to the world by uniting the dimensions of Binah and Malchut through Zeir Anin and indeed created heaven and earth, as no less an authority than the Zohar and Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai tell us, then what can the 42-Letter Name do for you?

What can’t it do for you? Are you using it enough? Are you using it to be proactive? (If aren’t familiar enough with it, please read The Genesis Prayer).

Chazal tells us that it’s through the understanding of the 42-Letter Name that the geula (final redemption) will happen.   Considering all that it’s done already, is there any doubt that it can do that as well?

The secrets of the combing of the letters will be revealed over time in this blog.  Some have already been given, some were revealed in he Genesis Prayer.

Everyone’s help is requested in this matter.  If anyone of you is a programmer and would like to help us rewrite the gematria programs to reveal more of the secrets locked in the Torah, please just write in to us.

One of the secrets of this portions was that it took 3 different types of energy to manifest the Tabernacle as reflected in the gold, silver and bronze collected, and that everyone’s money was accepted; the Tabernacle was for everyone present and participating, all 3 million of them.  We’ll save the mathematical explanation of that for another article, but safe to say that if there were 603,550 men, there were a similar number of women and even more children.

Help us to help the world in any way you can; everyone deserves a chance to know about the 42-Letter Name.  The blueprint for the Holy Temple exists; everyone can share in the process.
