At the Seed of Keter, the Window Opens
…continued from The 10 Commandents
It’s not surprising that the high point (H’keter) in the Torah would be connected to its first verse, or seed level consciousness, in the same way that if we don’t have the purest of intentions when we help someone, our efforts will go awry or even backfire.
So let’s look to the seed level within the 10 Utterances, at its first verse at Exodus 20:2. Amongst the 9 words of the verse, which are analogous to the 9 paragraphs of the 10 Commandments, we find that its first 3 words form a 13-letter phrase (analogous to the 13 verses of the 10 Commadnments), “Anochi Adonai Elohicah (ENCY YHVH ELHYC),” “I am God, your Lord.”
That should have been enough.
While 3-word phrases in the Torah are often associated with the 3 columns of the Tree-of-life schematic, and this time even more so since the word ELHYC has the gematria sofit value of 546, as in the initials of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-life.
This is not surprising, as we know from chazal that the 10 Utterances represent those 10 sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-life, but what is news is that the regular gematria value of this phrase is 173, as in the 173 keys of Moses, the 42-Letter Name, the understanding of which chazal tells us will bring the geula. And which is analogous to the 172 words plus 1 for the kolel of the 10 Commandments.
It should have been enough, all the power of the 10 Commandments, the power to transform and transcend, was all wrapped up in its first 3 words, “Anochi Adonai Elohicah (ENCY YHVH ELHYC),” “I am God, your Lord.”
And if you recall from the prior articles in this series, the numerical value 173 is found 13 (ahava/love) times in the Torah. Yes, it’s because of G-d’s love for us that He gave us the 42-Letter Name, but also this is another piece of evidence that the 42-Letter Name (Ana B’koach) is the love algorithm, a spiritual formula and cosmic technology that connects us to “unconditional love,” the numerical value of of which is not only the value of the 42-Letter Name’s first line, 506, but also the number of times the 14 triplets in the Name appear in the Torah, 506 times. This is also the complete (ordinal and simple) value of Mashiach Ben David, but much more about that can be found in The Genesis Prayer.
Moreover, 506 is also the numerical value of the 32nd (VShR) of the 72 Names, and as we saw with our blogs on the splitting of the Red (Endless) Sea, the 42-Letter Name and the 72 Names often work in concert when big, so-called, miracles are required. This also further connects the 42-Letter Name to the 32 Paths of Wisdom and thus the Tree-of-life.
And speaking of Moshiach and the geula, not only are the first 2 words of the 10 Utterances “I am God” found at letter number 107007 in the Torah, but their numerical value is 107 as well, leading us right back to 5778 (2018 CE), the date the tzaddikim gave us for the arrival of Mashiach and the geula (final redemption) since the sum of the integers through 107 = 5778, and since this being the 54th paragraph in the Torah, 54 x 107 = 5778 as well..
Why not a perfect 107007?
Because it probably is perfect on some level that we don’t fathom as yet. We find this non-perfect reference again in the (600,000 – 408) component letters in the Torah, whereby 408 x 6 = 2448, the year of the 10 Utterances and when Keter was achieved for a few, and not for the 600,000 Israelites who were present and could have achieved it.
Meanwhile, while 408 x 6 = 2448, the equation 408/6 = 68, the numerical value of Cha’im, life, as in Etz Cha’im, the Tree-of-life, and the number of alefs (E) in the 620 letters of the 10 Utterances.
Are we reading into this? You decide. The verse that immediately precedes and introduces the 10 Utterances, Exodus 20:1 “God spoke all these words, saying:” has 7 words and 28 letters, just like the Torah’s first verse.
–Moreover, the initials of those 7 words add up to 68, again, the numerical value of Cha’im, life, as in Etz Cha’im, the tree-of-life.
–And, the total gematria sofit value of that verse less a kolel of (28/7 or 4 for the YHVH) is 2448.
–And with a kolel of 28 for the 28 letters it equals 2480, which is the sum of the Names of the 5 Books.
–Also the standard gematria for the full verse is 1332 or 2 x 666.
Anyway you look at it, this introductory verse is connecting the 10 Utterances (Commandments) spoken by G-d at Sinai to Creation itself. That simple 3 word phrase Anochi Adonai Elohicah (ENCY YHVH ELHYC),” “I am God, your Lord,” was directly plugged in to G-d Himself. Soon, we’ll be able to plug in once again…
