Amazing Unifications

I was studying the Arizal’s explanations on the 3rd of the 10 plagues last night, Lice (Kinim) of numerical value 120, when it occurred to me that the 50 letters in the 3 iterations of the spelled-out Name of G0d, Adonai, associated with the malchut level total 2608, which is 120 more than 2488, the year Moses died at the age of 120 and when the Israelites entered the Promised Land.

But Adonai is the pronounceable aspect of G-d’s Name, YHVH, which is associated with Zeir Anpin. Together Adonai (EDNY) and YHVH form a powerful unification YEHDVNHY equivalent to 91, the value of Amen, and we know from the Arizal that we should meditate on this unification whenever we say Amen in order to complete the connection of the 7 sefirot (dimensions) between Malchut and Zeir Anpin This helps elevate the blessing that was recited, and in so doing we procure for ourselves all the same benefits as the person who made the blessing.  Some chazal say we get even more benefit than the person reciting the blessing because we plugged it into the outlet.  And in these difficult days, the very least we should be doing is helping one another by saying Amen and making the unification (YEHDVNHY) in our minds.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve witnessed easy easy missed opportunities for people to help one another and help themselves by simply saying amen. It starts with the little things, with consciousness and compassion, and spreads to reveal Moshiach and a new reality beyond all the veils of illusion.

But this was an aside, what had really occurred to me was that when we unify the 50 letters of the 3 iterations of Adonai (EDNY) with the 42-Letters of the 3 iterations of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) we get 2608 + 50 + 708 + 42 = 3408 and 3408 was the year the Second Temple was Built.

First of all, we should note for those that noticed it, that the 42-letters of YHVH do indeed comprise the upper Shem Mem-Bet, or upper 42-Letter Name and that when we recite the Ana B’koach and take an action to manifest what we’re meditating on the two 42-Letter Names unite on our behalf. (See The Genesis Prayer for how to use the Names/meditations properly) Furthermore, according to chazal it’s this unification of 42 + 42 = 84 that create Pad (PD), redemption of gematria value 84.

Now, as readers of The Divine Calendar know, nearly all the significant dates of the Bible and Biblical events end in the number 8 so it’s interesting that 3408 results from the unification of the two very important Names of G-d and that they both also end in 8: 2608 and 708, and that 3408 is 800 more than 2608. Moreover, if we remove the 8’s, we’re left with the numbers 26, 70, and 340. The number 26 is always representative of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), and 340 is the value for the word Shem (Name) and 70 couldn’t be more integral to the Divine calendar.

The number 70 is more than just the 70 members of Jacob’s family who entered Egypt, or the 70 members of the Sanhedrin, and it’s more than 70 years that Adam and the Patriarchs gave to King David so that he’d live for 70 years and that the midpoint of his life in 2889 would mark the midpoint of G-d timetable from Adam to 5778, when the tzaddikim (righteous souls) have advised Mashiach (Messiah) and the geula (final redemption) will occur.

To begin to understand the simple complexity and divine beauty in G-d timetable, we need to note that when we square 5778, we get 3338… and the First Temple was destroyed in 3338 HC, and while the Second Temple was built in 3408 HC as noted above, there are 34083338, or 70 years between the destruction of the First Temple and the building of the Second Temple.  These 70 years comprise the Exile in Babylon that was ended by Ezra, The Scribe, who returned the Jews to Israel and who arranged for the Second Temple to be built. These 70 years also compare to the date 70 CE when the Second Temple was actually destroyed and to the numerical value for the word “seventy” (70), which is 422, as in the 422 years that the Second Temple stood, and moreover the date 422 BCE when the First Temple was destroyed.

Take a moment to reflect on that. There’s no mathematical slight of hand that could line up these dates or lengths of times; this is just the way history played out.  And it’s meant to create awe in us.

We need not fear G-d and suffer the 10 plagues again, not even lice,  if we can summon the awe of G-d that the Israelites had in 2448, which is 3330 or 66.6 jubilee (50-year intervals) years ago when in paragraph 42 of the Book of Names (Exodus) they sang out in praise to G-d for their deliverance from Exile.

“…and the people were in awe of God. They believed in God and in his servant Moses.”

That all it takes for us to exit the exile and enter the tree-of-life reality: To be in awe of G-d, believe in G-d (with certainty in our hearts and minds), and in his servant Moses/Moshe (Moshaich). Amen!

The 10 Plagues and the Final Redemption

…continued from the 10 plagues: In the last two blogs in this mini-series on the 10 plagues, we discussed how the 10 plagues were more for the benefit of waking up the Israelites to the tree-of-life reality than shaking up the Egyptians, and how that were even more for our benefit as we deal with the same spiritual afflictions our brethren faced 66.6 jubilee years ago, when they too stood before the 50th gate of darkness. In this installment we’ll explore what and how those signs back in 2448 have to do with us today as we fast approach 5778.

There are normally 41 letters in the 10 plagues with 41 being the number of letters in the full Name Ehyeh spelled out, the powerful Name for “I am that I am.” Nevertheless, in the Torah the word for beasts (or flies) is never spelled with the “vav” as it is in traditional Hebrew, which leaves us with just 40 letters.

The 10 Plagues and the Final Redemption

If we include the vav as is customary in most hagadahs,the sum of the 10 plagues using gematria sofit is 5546. And 546 is not only the sum of the initials of the 10 sefirot, but is the result of 21 x 26. We know that the Tetragrammaton, the ineffable Name of G-d, (YHVH), has the numerical value of 26 and that Ehyeh (EHYH) has the value 21, so we can easily understand that this is no coincidence, especially since we know from chazal that the 10 plagues were all about rectifying the 10 sefirot and preparing the Israelites to receive the 10 sefirot (tree-of-life) reality.

But to further understand this we must visualize each of the 21 aspects (or energy centers) within the Name Ehyeh (EHYH) embued with the power of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH). And when we do this we’re no longer passively meditating, but actively activating the tree-of-life, which is why there are 21 YHVH’s in each of the 2 parts of the tefillin (head and hand) and one of the reasons there is a large letter Shin (Sh) on it, whose ordinal value is 21.

It’s important for all of us to understand the tools we’re using to the fullest, and it’s no different from using your computer to send email, or to do so much more. So for those of you who use the tefillin, it’s very important to understand that not only are you connecting to the 10 sefirot with both your head and your hand tefillin, but each one is collected to a fully [potent Ehyeh (EHYH) and togetther, the two Ehyehs and you head (RESh) form and connect to EHYH EShR EHYH “I am that I am.” And moreover, that the 42 YHVH’s all together connect you to the power of the 42-Letter Name (Shem Mem-Bet, also known as the Ana B’koach), associated with not only manifesting miracles in our world, but with helping to bring about the geula (final redemption), but for more on that please read The Genesis Prayer.

It also further connects you to the physical seed of Mashiach Ben David and the power of manifestation through the 42 times the the name Yehuda(YHVDH) appears in the Torah, which each one containing the YHVH. Yehuda (Judah) was a man of action and strength and this attribute is built into all association with him, and thus the proper use of the 42-letter Name and the tefillin.

These are powerful tools we’ve been given, the Torah, the Names, the Tefillin and they are not to be taken or sued lightly. In the proper consciousness they have the power to open us up to the tree-of-life reality and when we pray/mediate for others, for the greater community to receive this consciousness and our compassion and we follow that up with our actions, we can make the tree-of-life a reality for not only ourselves, but the world. And just like the Names of G-d within the Torah and within our prayers and tefillin are intertwined and linked one to another, so must our prayers and actions; only by praying for and helping one another can we assemble the full 10 sefirot (dimensions) of the tree-of-life reality, the true reality beyond our illusory world of selfish desires and desperate needs.

And it’s absolutely no coincidence that at the end of the 10 plagues, just before beginning the first leg in their 42 journeys to reach the Promised Land, we were given 2 of the 4 portions that are housed in the tefillin in Shmot (Names/Exodus) 13:1-16, culminating with Shmot 13:16 “These shall be a sign on your arm and an insignia in the center of your head. [all this] is because G-d brought us out of Egypt with a show of strength.”

And for those that don’t use tefillin and for morning prayers and for those of us that do as well when we’re going about our daily lives, we can and should still keeps the signs of G-d and signs of redemption on our heads and arms, in our thoughts and our actions at all times. This will activate the tree-of-life, and then we can really know what it is to live.

Getting back to the 10 plagues, we see that their full sofit value is off from 5778 by 232, since 5546 + 232 = 5778, the year preordained for the arrival of the Moshiach as explained by the tzaddikim. And as explained in numerous other blogs 232 is the sum of the 4 aspects of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH:Av, Sag, Mah, Ban). And if you recall, 232 also defined the divine relationship between the Earth and the Sun, whose surface temperatures (or radiances) were248.573 K and 5778 K respectively and 5778/248.573 = 23.2447.

As we’ve noted extensively in The Divine Calendar, the dates of the Exodus in 2448 HC, the Final Redemption in 5778 HC and the fulcrum point of the Gregorian Calendar in 3760 HC are all integrally connected and aligned, so it’s no surprise that the sum of the 10 plagues in standard gematria equals 3290, and when we add the ordinal value of the 40 letters in the 10 plagues, (468), we get 3290 + 468 + 2 (the kolel for the 2 elements of the equation) = 3760, or 26.26 jubilee years after the Exodus, with 26 being the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) yet again.

Once again, we see the Torah giving us the tools, spelling out how we need to use them and showing us the timing of G-d’s Divine Calendar.  We can choose to ignore them as most of us have done for 66.6 jubilee years, or connect to them, put them in our hands and our heads and our hearts and bring about Moshiach and the geula, and end our final exile, once and for all.

…to be continued in 10 Plagues, Final Installment, where we explore further how the Names are woven into the final plague and how we can use that for our own redemption.

Naming Names; The Gifts we’ve been Given.

What’s in a Name? Why does the Torah pause to list them? What happened 3330 years ago (66.6 jubilee years) that we NEED to understand to help us today?

“These are the names of the sons of Israel who came to Egypt with Jacob…”

The second of the 5 Books of Moses is named Exodus, but in the original Hebrew it is Shmot, the Hebrew word for Names, and as in all the portions and Books of the Torah, the seed level of its energy and inspiration is in its first few words. Thus the seed level impetuous for the Exodus from Egypt, the end of the exile from Egypt, and the giving of the Torah, is in the first few words of the Book.

The very first word, V’eleh (VELH), links us both to the beginning of the Torah and Creation itself, and to all the events, and to the 42 journeys the Israelites will make during the entire rest of the Torah. It’s numerical value is 42, and it’s pretty obvious that 42 Shmot (42 Names) a reference to the 42-Letter Name of G-d utilized in the splitting of the Sea of Reeds and present in all the significant Biblical journeys, such as the one referred to in this verse.

The second set of Names hinted at here is a little more cryptic and is concealed with in the word for Names, Shmot (ShMVT) itself, whose gematria value is 746 and whose ordinal value is 62, as in the 62 letter yuds in the 10 Commandments (utterances) whose collectively equate to 620, that of keter, the highest crowning sefira (dimension). This connection to the 10 Utterances is not without significance because is we add the progressive form of the number 4 for the 4 letters in Shmot, we get 4+3+2+1=10 and 62 + 10 = 72, as in the 72 Names of G-d utilized in the splitting of the Sea of Reeds (Red Sea) and the complete value for Shmot, defined by 746+62+10= 818, the sum of the small gematria of the 216 letters in the 72 Names (Triplets).

Before we get into the Names themselves and their mechanics, we should ask why the Torah felt the need to put them first and foremost in this Book concerning the Exodus, the end of the first exile, and the reception of the Torah and tree-of-life reality at Sinai.

It’s because the first exile is mimicked in the last, and we’re going to need these Names (Tools) to split our own Red Sea and to get out. Upon very careful reading of the Torah as guided by chazal, we can see that on one level the Israelites never wanted to leave Egypt. They were slaves to their own desires and that was their bondage that they needed to break.

We’re no different today, slaves to our materialistic desires, to our own personal agendas. A slave has no freedom to choose. And for all the visible freedoms of our society, we can’t even see our own souls, let alone anyone else’s. The illusions of our everyday needs and desires are so thick we can’t even imagine the tree-of-life reality behind the curtains where are already have everything we need. The manna and wells of Miriam, and clouds of glory are there, ready to shelter and sustain us with everything we need, but almost no one day even imagines them to have once been real, let alone to be an option for us to choose. That is our slavery, utter and nearly complete.

In Shmot 4:21 G-d made Pharaoh obstinate. That is to say, up to that point he was reasonable and would have granted Moses request in Shmot 5:3 for a 3 day vacation for the Israelites to make sacrifices in the desert.

But the Israelites didn’t want the desert, or to make sacrifices anymore than we do today. Which is why the dark side is also becoming more obstinate. It wasn’t enough that we had to make our daily bricks to pay our bills to the man-made system that sustains us and to achieve our false reality dreams, but now thanks to the financial crises we have to make them without straw.

Shmot 6:1 “..[Pharaoh] will be forced to drive them from his land.” Why would he have to be forced to drive they out if they will so willing to escape? Because they didn’t want to got.

We to will have to forced out. It’s coming, along with the frigid winds blowing across the lands. The Bible has given us a blueprint.

Then in Shmot 6:9 after Moses conveyed G-d words to the Israelites they rebuked him and would not leave, which is why in Shmot 6:10 G-d tells Moses, to then go to Pharaoh “and he will let them leave.”

G-d couldn’t wake up the Israelites, so he shuck up the oppressive powers that gripped them–the banking systems, the marketplaces, the insurance system, the political systems. And he kept shaking until the Israelites fell off their perches in the branches of the tree of Good and evil.

This level of interpretation dovetails with all the later cries (complaints) to Moses by the Israelites to return to Egypt where the melons were so delicious and the steaks were so juicy–pretty good food for slaves. People couldn’t realize there are other options (spiritual options) when their mouths were full, so G-d forced them to imagine the food when they were empty. And with His help, they did, and manna tasted like anything they wanted it to.

We too today are slaves, and everyday more food is being taken out of our mouths. We too will be forced to imagine a new reality, and He will be there to help us when we do. It’s a leap of faith, just like jumping into the Red Sea before it split. But even then after witnessing the 10 plagues it still took the armed Egyptians at their backs for the Israelites to jump. What will it take us?

We’ve been given the same Names to use as our tools as the Israelites, who were stuck in the darkness of Egypt 66.6 jubilee years ago (50 year intervals). So I guess, it’s time we learn to use them (properly).

Time at the moment the Names were given to the Israelites, as marked by the passage of the Torah readings, has consumed 50 Biblical chapters , 1 grand jubilee year of 2448 years, equal to all 2448 years of the 4 exiles culminating in 5778 HC. Yes, the Patriarchs and the tzaddikim had them earlier as the tzaddikim continue to use them to this day, but it’s a paradigm shift when they are made available to everyone. Moses and Aaron alone couldn’t end the exile–the people had to do it for themselves.

The number 50 to the kabbalists represents the 50 Gates of Binah (understanding). It can also chas v’shalom (G-d forbid) represent the 50 gates of negativity, which the trapped Israelites in Egypt were knocking on back then.

But, with G-d’s help and the arrival of Moses, and 10 plagues followed by 10 miracles the Israelites woke up and received the Torah and 10 Utterances at Mount Sinai. Because of this awakening and reception, there were an additional 137 chapters of the Torah, and 137 is the numerical value of the word Kabbalah, meaning “to receive. We received another 137 chapters of Life.

In one of the strangest Torah passages, it says G-d wanted to kill Moses. That would have been it, light out just before the Israelites reached the 50th gate. G-d would not have allowed them to enter the 50th gate of negativity. That passage was in Shmot 4:24, and when it was decided to kill Moses the Man, Moses Mashiach Ben David rose in his place in order to not only save his generation, but to save ours, all the generations.

We’re knocking on the gates again, and need all the tools the Torah has to offer us in order to help ourselves and to merit the help of Moses again.

Then in Shmot 6:11, the Torah starts listing the heads of the Tribes and their genealogy, where it mentions three lifespans, all in the genealogy of Moses. It’s notable that 611 is the numerical value for Torah and that 616 is the numerical value for H’Torah (“the Torah”) because it’s in Shmot 6:16, the Torah starts with the phrase “V’Eleh Shmotagain, and it’s here where it gives us the 3 direct ancestors of Moses.

It was back in Shmot 1:1 where we last saw the phrase V’Eleh Shmot and the Torah listed Israel’s (Jacob’s) children who came to Egypt with him. Their initials in the order they were listed added up to 616 for the first 10, leaving Asher as the 11th, whose name makes up the central part of the powerful Name Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh “I am that I am,” but more about that later.

We’re told that Levi lived for 137 years; Kehoth lived for 133 years: and Amram, lived for 137 years. All together the last 3 generations until Moses, the 26th Generation in the live of Adam, lived 407 years, and the secret here is that the square root of 407 is 20.17424 or the fusion of the year 2017 CE, which is when the prophesied years 5778 begins, and 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David. (As explained in The Divine Calendar)

This hints of Moshe’s (Mose’s) connection to Mashiach and that he will return as H’Moshiach, which is reinforced by the fact that the numerical sum of the names Levi, Kehoth and Amram is 901, because the sum of all the positive integers through 424 (Mashiach Ben David) is 90100, which significantly enough is also analogous to the 90100 Yuds, Heys and Vavs in the Torah, the 3 component letters of the Tettragrammaton (YHVH). (As explained in The Genesis Prayer)

In the continuation of this blog we’ll explain the details and significance of the Names, the tools we’ve been given to help us break free, and into the Tree-of-Life reality, including “I Am that I Am” Ehyeh Asher Eyheh, the 42-letter Name (Shem Mem-Bet, Ana B’koach) and the 72 Names (Triplets)
