SHADOW GOVERNMENT — BOOK 75 — LIGHT

Ain Soph Aur (The Wisdom of Knowing the One Light):

You guys might find most of this to be interesting.

You might think of this as the Nut-brown Husk, the Shell of Kabbalah, which contains the Kernel, the Seed, the Germ, of the Truth.

Gnosticism was destroyed by the Christian Church precisely because it does not need a Priesthood, nor a Church. At least, they think that they destroyed it…

But it just went underground…

Parts of Gnosticism are derived from Kabbalah, and also later influenced Kabbalah. You can find most of the stuff on the link below, and in the Sefer Yetzirah, or the Book of Creation.

http://gnosticteachings.org/faqs/kabbalah/781-sephiroth.html

What could best be called the Universal Array, has been designed to clarify; however, in actuality, it pulls the wool over your eyes. The proper, understandable Array looks like this:

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 15

Nine Lines, Five Faces, Three Pillars, are visible. The Fourth Pillar, is seen as but a Point, which the Kabbalist would call Keter, or Crown. Keter Elyon, is Keter Malchut. The Crown of the Beginning Spirit, is linked to the Crown of the Kingdom Come. And thus is the First, also the Last…

In the simplest terms of the description of the Universe, Keter, corresponds to the Number One.

Ten Points, are seen; Two are Hidden, are unseen. And the Fifth Pillar, of the Two Points Hidden Become One, is Hidden itself, within…

 

Ain – The Absolute, of Null.
Soph – Without Limit.
Aur – Light.

Of course, you are more used to seeing something a little more like this:

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 02

Which is derived from a type of hypercube:

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 03

Which is composed of three unfolding and infolding cubes:

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 04   8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 05    8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 06

And the two below, once wedded together, become the one flesh, the One Spirit, the One Above.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Only Ten of the Twelve Points are visible, and are Numbered:

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 07

For the Origin, and Negative and Positive Infinity, and Null, can only be seen and heard with the heart and the mind of the Chosen One; they are not visible, nor are they audible, to the eyes and ears of mortal men.

And Positive Infinity and Negative Infinity, approach unto One another, to return to the Origin; and the Three, become the One…

But the Null, remains always, the Null.

 

 

From this, from the Twelve Points, can be derived the Open Vessel, the Cup of the Eight Facets, of the Six Sides, of the One Base Sealing them, with the One Above Yet Unseen:

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 08

For to close over the Vessel to the eyes and to the ears, is to find death fast upon you.

And the One Above, is but the Door which has been long Open unto the Saints, yet is fast shut tight, upon men…

 

 

 

 

 

What you are really used to seeing, is something more like this:

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 09

Which you would call the Tree of Life, the Etz Ha Chayim.

The Ain Soph Aur, or the Eternal Light of Null, is above the Etz Ha Chayim. And it is the Light, which gives Life to the Tree.

It would perhaps be better said, that the Light is behind the Tree…

That the Light, is behind everything.

You are to know, that ultimately, there are no fixed positions for the Light, and for the Tree. For everything, is relative to the perspective…

The Ten Visible Points, or the Ten Sephirot which describe the Universe, all spontaneously derived from the Ain Soph Aur. It would best be said, “derive,” as All is Now. There is no Beginning nor End, nor time nor space, for the Ain Soph Aur, for the Null.

In the Action of Description, is found the process of creation…

Is found the Demiurge…

Is found the Aeons, and the Archons, of the Gnostic.

Anything which is imagined, now already exists, and sprang instantaneously from the Ain Soph Aur fully-formed, at the Very Beginning. For the Demiurge, is but Creative Thought itself. The Realms, the Worlds, the Spirit Rulers…All were at once created, within First Thought.

The Ten Sephirot, form the Living Stump, the Blooming Rod, the Green Branch, the Whispering Leaf of the Terebinth, which overshadow and cover everything. This is the Hedge, of the Psalmist.

The Eleventh Sephirot, is the Root, which springs forth from and which splits the Rock into the Two Pieces. And from between the Two Pieces of Duality, do the Living Waters pour forth.

For the Root, is embedded in the Rock; the Origin of the Root, is the Rock.

As Above, so below…

Yet still, are Two Sephirot hidden. And they are Null, and Origin…

Null cannot be seen, but by He Who Penetrates the Veil. And He Who Penetrates the Veil, is Origin.

From Origin, has the Root sprung forth in creation, from the Rock. For Origin, is Procreation; Origin is the Hidden Seed, in the Unseen Crack in the Rock.

And the Red Skin Covering Him Over, is First Adam.

The Root, is the Very Beginning of the Fourth Column…

The basic, core idea I will be driving at can also be represented by Eight Lines, Five Faces, and Five Points (The Ten, and the Eight, of Perfection):

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 10

Which is not only the Four Corners and the One Risen Above them, but also the Four Faces in the Four Directions, and the Foundation. And this is the pyramid of many layers, of many stones shaped by the hand of man, each one rising above the other.

But upon the Very Top, is found a miniature version of all that is below, which contains all that is below. And this Capstone, Crowns the entire shaped creation, and preserves the entire Universe which is beneath Him, and which supports Him. He does so, by His Very Presence.

And this Capstone fits nowhere else, but upon the Very Top. For it is the Stone Unshaped by human hands; it is the Hidden Stone, which the builders amongst men, have always rejected…

It is the Hidden Seed, of the Rock…

From which everything describable by the Ten Numbers, the Ten Sephirot plus Origin, has sprung forth.

Origin, has no place…
Origin, cannot ever rest.
For Origin, is everywhere, at all times…

Origin, is the Eternal. Origin, is Beginning and End; Origin, is Light and darkness; Origin, is all and nothing, become One. The Universe Unfolds, and Infolds, from and into Origin. Origin is Chaos, and all Order…

For it is Origin, Who has been given the Keys to the Gate of Gan Eden, and the Door of Heaven, and the Chains of the Abyss.

The Capstone, if you will, is the thumb, to the fingers of the Hand. And without the thumb, the fingers can accomplish very little. And the Hand of Hashem, is thus not visible, to men.

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 11

As Above, so below…

And yet, does the Null Remain Above, Behind, Below, Before, to the Left and to the Right, the Chuppah Forever Unseen, by men.

The Spirit Come Down to inhabit the clay unseen, to be Covered Over within the vessel of clay, is the Spirit of all men; it is the same Spirit Contained Within the Thirty-Six Righteous Ones.

And the Spirit Risen Up, Gone Up, Taken Up, Hidden Within the Chuppah of the Cloud, within the Holy Sanctuary, within the Ark, within the Rolled Up Small Scroll, within the Name, within the Word, is the Spirit of Hashem; it is the same Spirit Contained Within the One Anointed Mashiach.

His head is within the Cloud; from there, do His eyes burn through the Veil, and see all of the many ways of men. And His feet, are as molten bronze; and the Smoke Rises Up from their Place, as His Shining White Mantle. The White, covers His hand; and Hashem declares His Hidden Hand, to be clean.

For His Place, is the Temple upon the clay of the earth He has Come Out of; His Place, is the Island upon the sea, which He has Risen Up out of.

His Place, is overshadowing the sands, and the sea, and the earth. For He is the Overspreading Green Branch; He is the Wing Extended, over all…

All of this, has Hashem given to Him, as His Inheritance. All Power, and Authority, all Crowns, are His.

Does not the Spirit always say, “Come”?

The Fifth Column, hidden within the Foundation Stone and the Capstone, combines them both into the One. For the Fifth Column, is the Son, received His Inheritance from His Father…

He is become the Singularity…

For the Null, Is within Him, Is without Him.

From Null, is Come Singularity. And Singularity, “Is.”
From Singularity, is Come Origin. And Origin is, “I Am.”
From Origin, has Come the Sephirot. For the Sephirot are, “I Am, the I Am.”
From the Sephirot, comes All Action, and All Space, and All Time. And this One, these Five, these Three, are, “Here, I Am.”

“Is…I Am, the I Am…Here, I Am.” 1, 5, 3…

The One, is Hidden beneath the Chuppah of the Three Columns.  And the Four Angels, the Four Cherubim, the Four Living Creatures of the Four Faces, surround the Fifth, at the Center…

1, 3, 5…

And in the Wedding of the Bridegroom and the Bride, are the 153 and the 135, made into the One.  And with the breaking of the Vessel, and the release of the Fruit of the Vine, are not the 288 counted together, as but One?

The Lord helps Him, Who helps Himself. And the entire Universe, all of the creation, serves Mashiach, the Servant of all.

And there are many fish to be found, within the sea…

By the Still Waters, did Jacob seek his Rest. Like his father Isaac before him, Jacob lay down upon an Uncut Stone, and prepared himself for whatever Hashem had to offer him. For in the dreams of the New Day, Come Down many Visions, and the solutions to the problems which so vex men in their final waking hours.

And Jacob wrestled with the Angel; throughout the darkness of the long night, Jacob wrestled with the Spirit of himself. And he testified to the Angel, Who had seized him. And the Angel he could not best, nor Who could best him, Jacob would not let Go Up, until the Blessing of the Star of the Dawn Arose upon him.

And in his Vision, Jacob saw the Angels Coming down upon the Ladder; and he saw them Going up, and Returning to Heaven. And in the Morning Come, after the long night was ended, in the Thirteenth Hour, he Crossed Over.

For his mind had been Raised Up, upon the Uncut Stone. And he saw, and heard, and now understood, about the Burning Thorn, and the Angel of the Lord.

Jacob bowed low before Esau’s feet. And Esau took him by the hand, and said, “Do not do this thing, blood of my blood! Do not bow before me, my brother! But Rise Up, and greet me with a kiss! For am I not a man, just like you?

“Rise Up, and see me as I am! For you withheld from me in my weakness, and thus received my birthright; and you and our mother deceived our father, and stole his blessing from me.

“But look! Listen to me, my brother! Hear!

“Can you not see, that I, too, have become a Mighty Nation? And YHWH has given me the Birthright which is my own Just Due, come straight from Him; and the Father of us all, has given me His Own Blessing, which none could have ever taken from me.”

And Jacob gave Esau many Gifts; and Esau gave of his largess unto Jacob, in return. And they parted ways, as friends, as brothers, as the fathers of many Tribes.

But still, did Jacob mistrust Esau’s intentions; but Esau bore him no enmity, other than of this mistrust.

For had Jacob and their mother not conspired against him, would the Promised Blessings of Hashem, yet have Mantled his own shoulders? Would the world and everything in it, still have been given to him?

And Jacob, a Wanderer within the Land of Esau like Cain before him, within his mind and his heart, was become the Israel of the Promise; for he now understood about the Stars Come Down, and the Angels of the Lord Gone Up.

And long, did Israel sojourn in the Land of Esau…

For many generations did he sojourn there, until the Day when he Came Up.

Ten Faces; Ten Points; Sixteen Lines…

Eight Faces Showing, and Two Hidden, where Heaven and earth meet…And the Two, of Heaven and earth, of the Bridegroom and of the bride, become the One.

And Something New, is created…

Twelve Lines showing, and Six Points showing; for the Eight, have become the Four.

And from this, is derived the Ten, and the Twenty-Four, and the Thirty-Two, and the Thirty-Six. Four for Hashem, and Six, for men…

And yet, they are all but One…

As Above, so below.

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 12

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the Two, have become One. The Two Faces, one seen, One Unseen, are but the Two Faces of the same Gem, the both of them, Wedded together.

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 17And from the Four Faces Visible in the Four Directions, is derived the Six Wings Upholding and Covering Over; One Above, and One Below; One Before, and One Behind; One to the Left, and One to the Right…

 

 

 

 

And From the Center, do the Two Wedded as One Spirit and flesh, create the Universal Array of the Ten Visible Points, and the Two Hidden Points. For they are the Finished Foundation Stone, and the Created-Perfect Capstone.

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 14

And the Two, Infold upon the Center, to become the One. The Six Wings, Cover Over, as the Chuppah of the Wedding Bower.

And the One, is the Singularity, is the Center, is the Origin of the Universe. The One, is the Temple, is the Throne, is the Mercy Seat, Hedged all about, with the Many Facets of Green.

And what remains, but the Small Whisper, In the Six Directions? What remains, but the x- y- and z-, but the Six Perturbations of YWH, and the Seventh Seal, at the Center?

 

What remains, but the Singularity, the Nothingness, which contains everything?

What remains, is but the Promised Remnant…

Is but the Thirteenth Sephirah of the Thirteenth Hour; is but the Rod, the Root, the Germ, which splits the Rock asunder.

For the Singularity, is +∞, and −∞, and 0, and all which is contained within them. And are not these Three, all Unseeable, Undefined, and yet comprehensible? And is not Zero, whatever and where its Place in the Universe of space and time, always still the Origin?

For these are the Three Unseen, which describe the entire Universe. For they contain the Ten Sephirot within them…

And yet, they are all One…

It all depends upon your frame of reference; were you are, in the Universe.

“Here, I Am.”

And all Three, the One, The Ten, are contained within the Unseeable, the Unknowable, Null.

These are the Two Hidden Ones, the Powers Behind the Throne; the Null, and the Origin.

And the Origin, is the End…

The Ten Sephirot of Heaven (Spirit; the Three Spiritual Worlds) and earth (body; the one physical world) intercombine in the Universal Array. These are the Ten Visible Corners of the Two Cubes. Zero-to-nine, or one-to-ten; take your pick. But conceptually, one-to-ten, works better. These are the Two Tablets, and the Ten Commandments. The two hands folded in prayer, and the ten fingers. And so on…

To the left, are the Three Sephirot Who are Coming, as a lightning bolt; these are the Projections, wherein you can see the Chuppah over the Very Nature and Fabric of the physical world. These are the Veil, which is covering the Face. This is the instantaneous unfolding, unrolling, unsealing, the creation of the Universe; these are the x-, y-, and z- axes of the space-time continuum. This is also Righteousness, and Judgment, the Warrior Father, YHVH / YHWH. This is the Very Beginning, is Gan Eden, before the Fall.

To the right, are the Three Sephirot Who are Going, as holes; these are the Openings, the Doors, wherein you can see into the Very Nature and Fabric of the Spiritual Worlds. This is the infolding of the creation, the Universe, back into itself; these are the –x-, –y-, and –z- axes of the space-time continuum. This is also Love and Mercy, the Presence, Shekinah. This is the End Time, the Final Day, the Promised Land, the Inheritance, the World to Come, the Dawn of the New Day.

The Three Sephirot Coming, and the Three Sephirot Going, are the Six Seals. And at the Center, are they Wedded, into One…

They are bound and tied by their Tails at the Center, at the Origin.

At the Origin, is found the Seventh Seal, which wraps around the Six Tails in the Three Directions, and binds them and Seals them at the Center, which preserves the physical and Spiritual Worlds.

At the Center, at Origin, is found the Upper Man, of the Thirty-Six Righteous Ones. Through Him, have the worlds been created; because of Him, they have a reason to exist. Remove the Upper Man, Mashiach, from the equation, and the Universe will simply infold into the Singularity from whence it came; and both Heaven and earth, will instantly cease to exist.

So, do you see?

The Upper Man, has been with us from the Very Beginning. In every generation, does the Upper Man yet Return, Come Down, and Live…

The Seven Seals, represent the Upper of the Two Cubes of the Universal Array. For within Mashiach, are all of the Seven Seals contained. Mashiach holds the Universe together, at the Center. But He needs only to open His hand, and unbind the Chain from the Tails of the Six Sephirot, and they will Go Off in all directions. And Chaos will be unleashed upon the Universe, devouring all direction, all matter, all space, and all time…

The Lower Cube has Six Corners visible; these are the Six Visible Sephirot of the physical world. The Lower Cube, contains the Four Corners, and the Four Faces in the Four Directions; it is the Foundation Stone. The Wing pointing downward, the Lower Wing, is hidden beneath the Foundation Stone; the Wing pointing upward, the Upper Wing, is hidden beneath the Capstone. The Foundation Stone supports the Capstone above it, through its Four Faces and Four Corners, in the Four Directions.

The Foundation Stone, is synonymous with the parameters of the earth, and of man, and of the physical world.

The Upper Cube, has Five Faces showing; the Lower Face, or Lower Wing, covers over and shelters the Lower Cube. It is the Chuppah, the Veil, which hides Mashiach from Lower Man…

The wool, pulled over your eyes; or the scale of the Serpent, if you will.

The Upper Face, faces Hashem directly. It is Face-to-face with Hashem; this is the Shining of Moshe, and Mashiach, whenever He Comes. This is the red, and the white. This is the Upper Wing which shelters man from Hashem Himself. This is the Face of First Adam…

For Mashiach, is Hashem’s Appointed Counsellor, Councilor, and Mediator before the Throne, between Hashem Himself, and man.

The Foundation Stone, is the physical Temple. It is the Foot Upon the Earth, glowing like heated bronze.

The Capstone, is the New Jerusalem, descended from Heaven, as a Bright White Morning Star upon the Hill overlooking the Plain of Megiddo. It is the Head Within the Cloud, which sees through all with eyes burning like coals, descending like a Dove.

The Six Sephirot are YWH / YVH; YHW / YHV; WHY / VHY; WYH / WVH; HWY / HVY; and HYW / HYV. In their Coming and their Going from the Origin, in their expanding from the Singularity and then contraction back into it, the Six create, and destroy, the Twelve…

But the Origin at the Center, is always the Integral Constant of its Derivative, which is the Universe. And if you take enough integrals of the Origin, essentially, everything returns to the Constant. All of the Universe, in all of its Myriad Facets, in all of its Many Faces, reflects the Gem of its Origin…

And this is the Gem, The Emerald of Many Shades of Green, which surrounds the Eternal Throne.

For the Unseen Column, is the Throne of the Sanctuary, is the Mercy Seat Covered Over by the Wings of the Cherubim…

It is the Sanctuary, it is the Tabernacle, it is the Temple itself, Hidden beneath the Chuppah of the Smooth, Shining, Oiled, Horned Red Skin of the Pure One.

Upon the Mountain, all alone; within the Small Room, all alone; within the Wilderness, all alone; within the Desert; all alone…

Within the City, All alone…

All, is contained within the Anointed One, from between Whose feet, do the Living Waters flow forth.

Within His own mouth, is the Word come forth, which cuts to the left, and to the right. For YHWH has placed His Own Tongue, within the mouth of His Anointed…

And it is the Name, which He wears hidden, upon His side…

For the Two Swords are always enough, with which to Accomplish.

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 15

Behind the Ten Sephirot, which are the Ten Visible Corners which describe the physical world, are the Two Hidden Corners, which give it Life. This makes the Twelve Sephirot, which form the Twenty-Four Lines…

And each of these Lines, is the Line of one of the Elders of the races of man. For the Children of the Elders, have filled up the physical world.

There are Sixteen Corners, and Twelve Faces, to the Two Cubes of the Universal Array. And they make up the Thirty. But you also have the Two Unseen Ones, Who are behind all…

Hashem, without and within; and Mashiach, within and without. They are the other Two Letters; they are the First, and the Last. They are the Four; Null, Zero, Negative Infinity, and Positive Infinity. They are the Four Become Two; they are the Two Become One; they are the One, found both within and without the Null.

The Truth of it all is, is that there is a Thirteenth Sephirah, which is the Seventh Seal…

Which is the Seed and the Root of the Rock, Risen Up within the Six Directions. Rooted within the Split Rock, From the World Below, He wraps around and binds and Seals the Six Sephirot, the Six Directions, of the Three Spiritual Worlds.

This One, has integrated the Ten Sephirot into Himself; and in So Doing, the Two Hidden Sephirot, the Two Cherubim of the Mercy Seat, have been Revealed, and have become Known to Him. And in So Doing, the Foundation Stone of the Lower Man, of this earth, of this physical world, and the Capstone of the Upper Man, of the Spirit, of the Three Spiritual Worlds, have been combined into the One…

The Two Stones, have folded into One another. And He Himself has become the Breastplate, which contains the Hidden Urim and the Thummin of Lightning and Thunders and Judgment, and of Love and Mercy and Forgiveness, plus the Twelve Revealed Foundation Stones. He has become the Columns before the Temple; the Four Corners, and the Center Risen Above Them. He Who has always been the Germ and the Seed and the Root and the Stump, has become the Shoot, the Green Branch, the Rod, the Small Scroll, the New Jerusalem, and the Temple itself.

He Himself, is the Hidden Fifth Column, at the Center of all…

He, is but the Point, the Origin, of the Singularity of the Null.

The Ain Soph Aur, the Spirit, the Star Come Down with and within Him, has become the Star without Him, as it Is, and always Was, and ever shall Be.

For the Two, are now One. And He Is, of an instant, born Mashiach.

At that moment, space and time cease to exist for Him…

And it is the End Time.

And the “Here, I Am,” is now contained within the “I Am, the I Am.”

For the “I Am, the I Am,” has now become the “I Am, Who I Am.” And the Upper Stone, the Capstone, the Stone Untouched by human hands, Upper Man, Heaven, has now combined with the Lower Stone, the Corner Stone, the Foundation Stone, Lower Man, earth itself. And the old earth and the old Heaven are no more, and are no longer separated; for they have both Passed Away, and have been Remade Anew, within Him.

And the One Who Stands Before the Throne, the Mediator, the Counsellor, becomes, as it were, the New Heaven, and the New Earth…

Which are now combined into One.

This, is the Thirteenth Sephirah…

The Bright Morning Star, of the Thirteenth Hour.

This is how all Power and Authority in both Heaven and the earth are given unto the One, Who was Chosen by Hashem from the Very Beginning, for this very thing. For He, of His own freewill choice, has chosen Hashem, above all.

Indeed; before He was even born, All, was already His.

For All, has sprung from Him; from the Hidden Seed of the Rock; from the Root Come Forth spontaneously.

His Very Life, is an Open Book of Witness to the Law and to the Prophets. And that is the Very Point, of everything…

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 16

Did you really come here looking for instructions on how to build a Golem?

Look around you; they are everywhere.

All I can do for you, is to try to show you how to put the Spirit within the dead clay. I do not know how successful I have been, with you; but the Truth of it is, that it is all entirely up to you…

It always has been.

I have given to you, the Big Picture; but now it is up to you, to sweat out the many details for yourself…

For I am but the Publicist, am but the Front Man, for the Shadow Government. And it is entirely up to you, to have your name signed within their Book. For you have been given freewill…

So, why don’t you choose Life?

Creating a Golem from scratch, from the dust of the earth, with only words? That has been done, time and time again. But to give the dead clay, the True Spirit of Life…

Now that, is evidently rare…

That, is a True Miracle Under Heaven, is a cause for rejoicing, upon the earth.

The following places have had the greatest revelatory impact upon my Spiritual education and understanding. I have not strayed very far; but I have traveled so very far:

Belfast; Bethlehem; the Blue Ridge; Brodheadsville; Bushkill Center; Effort; Jacobsburg; Nazareth; Newburgh; Plainfield; Saylorsburg; and, Wind Gap.

For I miss the forests and the fields and the meadows and the streams of home: the long grass; the cleared path; the shade beneath the oaks; the whispering breeze; the light coming through the greenery; the tinkling crystal waters; Big Rock; the cloud above.

As Above, so below…

Shalom.

7-22-16: Got Apocalypse?

Got Apocalypse?
See if you can figure this one out:

The Lord said unto my Lord,
“Come Up!
And take My Own Right Hand
Into Your Own;
And from this Time forward,
This is Your Own Inheritance –
As it was from the Beginning,
And yet still is,
Until Everlasting.”

The Lord said unto My Lord,
“Take Your Destined Place!
Secure Your Own Promise!
And seat Yourself
Amidst the Cherubim.
Your Place,
Is upon the Rock of Jacob;
Within My Own Name,
Are You Forever Named.”

The Holy One Seated Upon the Lord’s Throne,
The Lord’s Own Anointed,
Called out to me,
“Upon the low hill, are ye
Not to worship;
For the Mount of Ashtaroth,
The High Place of Venus,
Is forever to be an Abomination.
For whosoever worships
The Great Whore,
The Adulteress of All of the Ages,
The Fornicator With the Peoples
And All of the Nations
For but gold and silver,
For but the produce of the blowing dust,
Does share with her
In her own ill fate.
He who claims triumph over God and Nation,
I Myself, do trump;
I Myself, do trample him beneath My Feet.
He, shall I grind to nothingness with My Millstone,
The Holy Mountain which I Myself
Have thrown down amidst the sea.”

And I did see with my own eyes,
My own Lord,
Lift up my own Lord,
And seat Him upon His Very Throne,
A Green Hedged Island
Above a Sapphire Expanse.
And the Cup was poured out upon Him;
It ran down from His Hair and Beard,
To whiten His Garment.
And the earth was torn asunder
From beneath his feet.
And the mighty trees themselves,
Did flee from before Zion,
Fearful of being swallowed up
By the Waters pouring forth
From the Rising Cloud,
To be heard of no more.

For the King of Heaven
Has chosen His Anointed One,
Whose Burning Feet and Eyes and Mouth,
Scorch the very earth.
And from within the Wasteland before Him,
Within the dust of a Whirlwind,
I saw a little horn rising up;
It rose up from a head,
Which was once perceived to be dead;
It put flesh upon dead bones,
And spoke the words of a false prophet.
And all of the world,
Kings and subjects alike,
Bowed down before the little horn –
For they are no longer Knowing
Of the One True God,
Nor the Word spoken by the True Prophets.

And the little horn dug a Pit within the sands;
And the sands all about the Pit did fall within it.
And the sands were swallowed up by the Pit,
Which the horn itself did create for them.
And it widened in the Four Directions,
And consumed all of the sands before it,
Until it became an Abyss
Of Fire and of Smoke,
The creation of an Abomination
Which causes Desolation.

But there was One Stone at the Center,
Which the little horn could not swallow up.

And from within the cloud of smoke,
Did hordes of locusts arise
To spread out over the entire earth,
With the sole purpose of devouring it,
And every living thing within it.

And the locusts alighted upon the Small Stone,
And covered it over,
And sought to devour it;
But the Stone was as a Glowing Coal,
Was as a Blue Flame,
Was as a Sulfur Brimstone to them,
And it consumed the locusts one-by-one.

And the people of the earth were sore afraid,
As the hordes of locusts alighted amongst them,
Devouring all which was not locust.
And the people called out unto the hills,
And unto the mountains which they have chosen
From amongst themselves,
“Fall upon us!
Crush us with your own weight!
Bury us beneath the weight of your own yoke!”
As if only they could thus be spared
From the cloud of devouring locusts!
But the hills and mountains
Were but illusions of Power before them,
Born of the heat
Of the sands of the Wasteland.

And the locusts devoured everywhere,
As they went forth;
And they stung the Saints
With their tails spitting fire;
And they tore them asunder
With their teeth of iron,
Unto the Appointed Time,
When the Number of the Saints
Should be accounted for in the Book.

And I saw the One Seated Upon the Throne,
Measuring up the Number
Of the Saints found beneath it.
And the Saints cried out
To the One Seated Upon the Throne,
And to the Holy One Standing Before the Throne,
Who Himself,
Had Lifted Him Up,
“How long, oh, my Lord?
How long,
Until You wreak Your Vengeance
Upon all of your enemies?
For our own enemies,
Are Your Own enemies!”

And I saw the Holy One Standing Before the Throne,
The Ancient One of the Many Days,
Hand a Scepter
To the One Who Was Seated upon the Throne.
And I saw the Scepter,
As it were,
Become a Blooming Green Rod of Power
Within the Grasp of His Own Hand,
Smelling with the sweetness
Of a comb of honey.
And then it became,
As it were,
But a Small Rolled Up Scroll of Vellum.
And the Saints who are all Gathered Up
Beneath the Throne,
Cried out to the One Seated Upon the Throne,
“Tear it open!
Throw it down!
Smash open the Clay Pot!
Break the Last Seal!”

And I saw the One Seated Upon the Throne,
Unwind a Binding Cord from around His Right Hand.
It was of three cords,
And was red and white;
I saw its colors.
And slowly He opened His Hand,
And reveal a Word secreted therein,
Which was long Written upon it.
And the Word,
Was but a Name;
It was only a Number.

And as He opened up His Hand to the full,
I saw Great Winds Rising Up
From the Four Corners of the Throne above,
And from the Four Ends of the earth below.
And the Winds combined,
The winds of Heaven,
And of earth;
They combined into One Great Whirlwind,
Which nothing in Heaven or upon the earth
Could stand before.

And from His Hand,
From out of the Smoke and Cloud pouring out of it,
Did Lightnings and Fires and Hailstones issue forth,
To go out into every corner of the earth,
To seek out and to bind
Those who were long ago
Cast out of Heaven.
For He is the One Chosen,
Who holds the Keys to the Locks
Of the Chains and the Doors
Of the Pit and the Abyss.

And when He fully opened His Hand,
And turned it downward,
So that the Word Written upon it
Was seen by all still upon the earth,
The Seventh Seal was fully broken,
As the Saints had cried out for.
And the Cherubim were released
To encircle the Four Directions.
And the Sephirot were released upon the earth,
And into all Above and Below it;
Into the Six Directions,
Were they unsealed.
And Chaos rode out with them,
As the pairs of tails were unbound.
And Hell,
And Death,
Rode with them.
And with their unbinding,
Those Whose Tails were bound by Him
From the very Beginning,
Heaven and earth,
Were no more.

And the Holy One Standing Before the Throne
Raised His Right Hand Up
Into the former Heaven,
And cried out with a Voice
Of Myriad Tumbling Water Stones,
“Let there be no more delay!
For the One Whom I Have Chosen,
My Anointed One,
Who walks with Me
And in My Ways
Every Day of His Life,
Has Taken His Rightful Place
Upon My Throne.
And I have made the earth
His footstool,
And Heaven His Dominion.
And as He has requested,
I have given to Him
All Peoples,
And all Crowns,
And all Tongues,
And all Nations.
All that Is Mine,
Is now given unto Him,
To do with as He pleases.”

And the Kings of the earth
And all of the evildoers,
Raged against the One Seated Upon the Throne,
And the Holy One Standing Before the Throne.
For they know that their time is now short,
And the End of Days,
Fast approaches.

And the Holy One Standing Before the Throne
Took the Crowns off of the heads
Of all of the Kings of the earth,
Upon whom He had bestowed them
For His Own Purpose;
And He cast the Crowns of earthly Power
Upon the Crystal Expanse
Before His Own Throne.
And the One Seated Upon the Throne,
Took Up all of the Authority
And the Power of the Crowns;
And He bestowed it upon
The Appointed Number of the Saints,
Which Number had now been fulfilled
Within the Book,
And beneath the Throne.

And the Great Multitude Before the Throne cried out,
“Hosanna!
“Hosanna in the Highest!
For the One Worthy to Wear
All of the Crowns of the earth and Heaven,
Has Come to Restore us!”

And From beneath the covering
Of the darkest of the nights,
I saw the Star of the Evening Going,
And the Star of the Dawn Coming,
Lighting Up the New Day.
And it is here, and now –
That Day.
Let he who has an ear to hear,
Hear the Tiny Whisper
Found within every Breath
Of the Divine Eternal Wind.

7-30-16: Shekinah

People say, “I pray to God; I talk to God; but He never answers me; She isn’t listening to me.”

What are you praying for? What are you asking for? How are you doing it?

Hashem answers in two basic ways:

1.) On the macroscale, YHWH answers in the Storm Cloud and in the Whirlwind. This is a Judgment upon a nation, a people, or a tongue, which indirectly benefits you.

2.) On the microscale, Shekinah answers but a question, which is Compassion personified. And it benefits you directly, Her answering your question about a nation, a people, or a tongue.

“I wanna new car! I wanna ‘nother baby! I wanna hit the friggin’ lottery! I want! I want! I want! Waah! Waah!”

Such a prayer is seldom, if ever, answered.

“Within this world, Lord, may all of your Stars Come down, and choose parents for themselves, who want and need them.”

A prayer like that, is often answered…

But not always. For even the Stars, have their freewill.

What is your motive, in asking for that? Are you being selfish? For YHWH considers your motives far, far more than He does your actions, in His Judgments.

Selfish prayers are seldom answered, unless the one praying unwittingly asks for something which will benefit a large number of people, or perhaps, the entire world. Such a prayer may result in a Sampson, or a Brahms, or the next C.S. Lewis.

Shekinah does, generally, answer every proper question Her child puts to Her; and generally She does it within the same day, and sometimes within seconds.

YHWH’s Rod?

It may take some time…

For He Truly tries to use it sparingly.

The Tiny Whisper in the Ear, the Small Voice of Shekinah, is a Slight Touch and Breath and Rustling of the New Leaf, the New Bloom, the Green Branch of the Prophet, Newly Sprung from the Stump, from the Root.

And when Shekinah no longer has to answer any of these questions, the Prophet has grown into the Rod, the Trunk, the Green Branch, which Overshadows the entire earth, as with Outstretched Wings.

But the thing is, that you have to learn the lingo first. And it is different for everyone, depending upon the Dimension and the Universe that you have chosen to Come down here to Live within.

After you read the story to follow, think over your own prayers, and decide if they are truly being answered by Hashem. And open your eyes and ears, so that you may see how the Tiny Whisper is speaking to you.

Like I said; you gotta know the lingo.

Here is how the Small Voice works for me:

I rebuilt my picnic table in the grove, and threw my tools into the black and blue and yellow bucket, and took them in. It took me all day.

I managed to salvage six boards for reuse. But since I replaced the 2 x 4s with treated decking, I had to salvage two more of the old boards for legs, for additional strength and stability, which made eight saved.

Yes; pay attention, to what you are seeing and hearing. For it is through numerology, that Hashem describes the Universe. After all; the Third Book of the Word, is Numbers…

I supported four of the legs upon stones, which are uncut by human hands. In the Four Directions, the Leveled Expanse was supported by the Foundation Stones. (Know, that everything which you will encounter in your life, is symbolic.)

The two other legs were free in the air, both up and down, hanging suspended between Heaven and earth. And these are the Six Directions. (You have to keep your eyes on the Goal, and you feet on the Path, to Zion; and you have to be paying attention to the Way and Word of Hashem, 24 / 7 / 366).

I took two other uncut stones, which were thicker and bigger, and put them under my leveled table. And then the other four legs were in up the air, and the table was tottering like a seesaw. So I dug them in; but I was not satisfied with the result.

At work on the third day after, I was on an idle site. And behind the remains of the recut building, at the northwest corner, I found a stone hammer with a yellow handle and a black grip. The head was to the right, close to the post; the tail was to the left, farther away. I looked at it, and said to myself, “Black and yellow, kills a fellow.”

The place was abandoned; and they obviously did not know where it was; and no one had been in here for months. I could have easily taken it home, for they did not know what they had done with it.

The head was not at all rusty, which I puzzled over, as the hammer had been out here in the open likely all winter.

I picked it up, and put it in the piping which held the post to the recut building, where they could easily find it again.

Someone else may take it, who needs it; but it is not going to be me.

I find tools like this all of the time. But I only take home those which I find out on the road, as no one knows who dropped them. You will find all kinds of stuff on finders keepers, in the Pentateuch.

From the massive scrap pile, I took two small scraps of the right size and thicknesses, which had been cut and split by the hand of man, for my leveled place, my pad beneath the picnic table, within my grove. And I found a better one; so I switched the second one out, for the third.

But this bothered me.

Here are the circumstances:

1.) The operator had told me that I could take as much rock off of the scrap piles as I wanted, and as often as I wanted. And if I wanted anything specific, if I came by the yard, he could give it to me at a good price, or perhaps even free, depending upon what it was, or how much of it I wanted.

2.) When I asked about the landowner, he said that he lived in Baltimore, and only came up on weekends and vacations; he owned 3,000 to 8,000 acres; and he didn’t care what he did anyway – It was his production and rock, and he could do what he wanted with it, as long as the checks kept cashing. And besides; they had been friends for years.

3.) It was two tiny pieces of scrap rock, which was destined for burial in the fill.

4.) Only God, and I, and the ravens were there.

So I had full permission to take them; but still, for some reason, it did not feel right. So when I got to the next site in the same property down the hill, I tossed them out into the weeds, and felt better with myself, for it.

The site operator used to ride on my bus, when we both went to Nazareth. He was a year ahead of me. Imagine meeting him way up here all over again, after all of these years!

It’s a small Universe…

I pondered this stuff, all of the way home. I had advance permission to take buku more; it was not much; and I wanted and could definitely use it. So, why did it somehow still feel like stealing, to me?

It was because I absolutely did not need it…

I could make do, with what I already had.

All the way home, I pondered upon all of the nuances of this, and when do you punish a mother or a brother for having to steal bread to feed their own, when Hashem duty-binds all of the nation to provide for the safety and welfare of all of their own? Where is Righteousness become the Thief in the Night? Where does Judgment and, and Forgiveness begin?

Like I said: 24 : 7 : 366.

The next morning, in the half-light, I was coming into the ring of uncut stones on the mountain, the area which I had raised up and leveled in the grove for the picnic table, where the smoke pleasingly rises up into Heaven from the bloody meat placed upon the grill…

And there, behind the post of a tree I had spared in the grove, was my Estwing…My carpenter’s hammer, which I had used in making living space in the Fire Museum on Main Street in Old Bethlehem, the city of my birth, the city of my father, who also was a carpenter. We used to meet at the old, wooden counter in the Woolworths’ for breakfast for a while, I working in the Fire Museum right to the south of it, he working in the Orr’s right to the north of it…

At least, for a time.

The nuances of that, were never lost on me…

Look for your own nuances and circumstantials, in your own life…

I had not even missed my carpenter’s hammer. I did not even know, where it was.

My hammer was to the southwest, in the leveled grove. And my hammer’s head was close to the post, the head to the right, and the tail to the left. And I marveled at how little rust was on it yet, after having being rained upon so much. And I bent down toward the earth…

“I see, said the blind carpenter, as he picked up his hammer and saw…”

And as I leaned over, my eyes filled with the colored sparkles of the half-sphered fronts of the Scrolls that were grasped in the Claws of the Eagle, in the half-light of this morning. And as my hand grasped the blue handle of the East Wing, right from where the handle hit the head, oriented west, north, and south, a white Sephirah struck me right between the eyes, right upon the forehead, within the Third Eye, fast-coming and fast-going, leaving a hole in the Universe, within which is seen the Beginning, and the End.

And I thought, ‘The Six Directions…The Six Seals…YWH in the Six Perturbations…The Three, the Six, the Twelve, the Twenty-four, the Forty-eight, the Seventy-two, the One-hundred-and-forty-four Legs of the Bronzed Tools and Altars and Lavers, upon the High Leveled Place…’

And I picked up my blue and silver carpenter hammer and saw…

That it was lying in almost the exact position and referential closeness and angle to the tree, as was the black and yellow and silver and stone hammer of three days before to the iron pipe of the posthole, far to the north of here.

And that is how Shekinah whispers in my ear. And all of my questions of the day before, and of the long night in between, were answered in but a Single Flash of the Sephirah, and a recognition of the similarities of repetition.

For it is an entirely symbolic language; and it is interactive, and it is relative to the needs and wants and mindset and knowledge and level of observation of the receiver of the Message.

Pay attention, and observe. Open your eyes, and your ears. And learn how Hashem Is always speaking to you, and thinking about you, and Is caring for you, though you may choose to deny this, and His Very Presence. He Is always there; She Is always holding you, and picking you up, and trying to comfort you.

But do not wait too long; do not deny the Presence for too long…

For YHWH is waiting…

And the Rod?

It Is within His Hand.

Will He place it in your own hands, as your True Inheritance? Or will He lay it hard upon your stiffened back, as a further burden, and punishment?

Will you be Forgiven, and be taken under Her Wing, to rest Hedged within the Warmth of the Wisdom of Her Plucked Bare Bosom?

Or will you be Judged, and feel the Hard Cold Rod upon your back, and have the Frozen Thunderstones from Above crack your foolish head wide open?

The choice, is yours…

It has always been yours, since from the Very Beginning.

So, choose wisely.

Stop; look; and listen…

And Cross Over.
