The Chants of Metatron

#1 Postby Marion » Sat Oct 06, 2007 2:50 pm

Shalom!
The other day I was contemplating the chant Torahkiel Yahweh, I was contemplating the two different forms of the chant, Toahkiel Yahweh and Torahkiel Y-H-V-H
In the ceremonial form of the chant (Torahkiel Y-H-V-H) it seemed like each syllable of the second part of the name was like a gate, But it was also like a ladder of ascension, but this ascent was also like a grounding. It seemed to ground the spheres above into the spheres below. this created a movement that was like a wind. The other form of the chant seemed to create a swirling below, because it seemed to issue from below, even though it has its roots above. This stirring below sparked a stirring above, and when this happened it created a pillar of white crystalline light that formed between the two. this pillar linked the two stirrings and made them like one stirring. so it was like a storm in the heavens and the earth.
So in this regard, I was wondering about the difference between these two forms of the chant, and what they invoke in consciousness.

Blessings and Shalom!

Word of God & Light Continuum

#2 Postby Tau Malachi » Sun Oct 07, 2007 10:44 am

Salutations in the Light of the Great Seth (Shin-Tau)!

Torahkiel literally means “Torah of God” or the “Law of God,” and Yahweh literally means “That Which Was, Is and forever Shall Be,” these two sayings placed together become a fascinating contemplation; Torahkiel can also be translated as the “Word of God” and Yahweh can be translated as the “Eternal Continuum” or “Light Continuum,” which may take the contemplation even deeper.

These two names together as one holy name of Archangel Metatron indicate Metatron as the Angel of the Supernal Shekinah, the interior Divine Presence, who spoke to the prophet Moses in the giving of the Ten Commandments; the aspect appearing to Moses, of course, was Archangel Sandalfon, the Angel of the Shekinah manifest. Thus, this is the Great Maggid at the burning bush speaking the Essential Name of the Most High (Eheieh Asher Eheieh) and the Great Maggid speaking the Holy Law that would open the way for the coming of the Messiah.

In this we may understand a very esoteric allusion when the masters of the tradition teach that rather than Moses and Elijah appearing in the Transfiguration, it was Enoch and Elijah, for as the Great Maggid of the Supernal Shekinah it was Metatron that transmitted the Holy Law to Moses, and likewise, Enoch ascended in divine rapture just as Elijah ascended – according to the Book of Kings, Elijah ascended by a whirlwind.

As this holy name proposes, Metatron is the pure emanation of the Light Continuum, Yahweh, the essence of which is Eheieh, the Divine I Shall Be.

Now according to the Kabbalah, the tradition, creation is founded upon the Holy Torah – with Ten Holy Utterances creation comes into being, and with Ten Holy Commandments the Divine Intention (Ratzon) of creation comes into being, the generation of the Human One of Light, the enlightened human being.

Ten Utterances, Ten Commandments, these are the powers of the Ten Holy Sefirot – the Torah finds its fulfillment in the Holy Gospel in which the Ten Commandments are unified as One Holy Commandment, “Love one another as I have loved you,” the Holy Commandment of Melekh Messiah, the Human One of Light, Metatron being the Great Maggid of the Messiah, the One Anointed with Supernal Light.

The Holy Name of the Messiah is Yeshua (Yoshua), which contains the Great Name of Yahweh with the addition of the Holy Letter Shin, the letter of the Holy Shekinah, the Divine Presence; of the Messiah it is said that he is as the Ladder of Lights that Jacob saw in his dream at Bet El, upon which angels of God ascended and descended, the Gate of the Great Ascension.

If in the Jewish Kabbalah the holy name of Archangel Metatron at the giving of the Holy Torah is Torahkiel Yahweh (or Yod-He-Vau-He), then in the Christian Kabbalah with the coming of the Messiah and proclamation of the Holy Gospel this holy name becomes Torahkiel Yoshua (or Yod-He-Shin-Vau-He), the Word of God, the Light Continuum, delivers!

This was known to Enoch and Elijah, as to King Melchizedek, and was embodied and transmitted in Adonai Yeshua Messiah; the world receives this through the Messiah, specifically the Risen Messiah, Hayyah Yeshua (the Living Yeshua).

Now, when we intone this Holy Name, whether as Torahkiel Yod-He-Vau-He or as Torahkiel Yahweh it is the same Light-presence and Light-power of the Great Maggid, but according to how it is intoned there are different manifestations of the matrix of this Divine Power; as you have noted, Yod-He-Vau-He is linear, like a ladder stretching from heaven to earth, and Yahweh (pronounced: IAOWAY) is like a swirling, spiral, circular movement. Each has its use on a theurgic level, and each has its own kavvanot when intoned.

The kavvanah at the beginning of both is the same – it is kavvanah upon the Holy Law or Torah, the union of the soul with the Holy Law as with the greater prophets, the greater navim (seers); this empowers to the intoning of the Great Name, for in union with the Holy Law one does not intone it, but rather the Holy Shekinah, through which the Law and the Name are given, intones it – it is the only way it is rightly spoken or intoned.

The full power and essence of the Holy Law, of course, is the Messiah, the pure emanation of the First Commandment – the Gospel of the Messiah to the Holy Law being as Eheieh to Yahweh; thus the secret kavvanah when intoning Torahkiel is Melekh Messiah, specifically Hayyah Yeshua.

When Yod-He-Vau-He is intoned the kavvanot are the four Olamot: Yod, the Ten Names; He, the Archangels; Vau, the Orders of Angels; He final, the Celestial Spheres or Sphere of Mazlot (fortune or destiny) – this is the manifestation of Yahweh, the Light Continuum as the Great Luminous Assembly, the Sphere of Mazlot implying the Community of Israel, the assembly of tzaddikim and navim of the Divine Order.

When Yahweh (IAOWAY) is intoned the kavvanah is the union of the Supernal Universe and Matrix of Creation, the Pleroma of Light and Entirety – or else, the union of the two Great Ofanim, Metatron and Sandalfon, Hua.

The truth is the same, either way, but the movement of the Light-power in our Body of Light and the Sacred Circle is different, as you have noted in your own experience.

If we are to speak of kavvanot, they are the concentration of the mind and heart – all thought and desire on a single “object” of focus, and in such focused awareness thought and desire cease, and there is pure conscious intention, the full spiritual power of our soul’s will and love; whatever is willed in this way, in submission to the Ratzon of El Elyon, the Supreme, will come to pass as it is intended, as it is willed, every time.

This invocation of Metatron is rather like a lightening bolt version of the Great Convocation, whether by way of the linear or circular Sefirot.

Now Yod-He-Vau-He is the manifestation of four Gates of Light in the four directions of the Sacred Circle, so that these Holy Letters may be envisioned in the Four Directions; Yahweh is the manifestation of two Gates of Light, above and below, in the height and in the depth, so that “Yah” may be envisioned above and “Weh” below – Torahkiel is the Word of God by which this will come to pass, the Holy Law upon which heaven and earth are founded.

*There is another kavvanah with Yod-He-Vau-He which is all of the Holy Letter spelt out in full – those who understand might contemplate this.

As we have alluded to above, in place of Yod-He-Vau-He we may also intone Yod-He-Shin-Vau-He, also Yod-He-Vau-Shin-He; with the former is the kavvanah of the Messiah in the ascension and the outpouring of Supernal Fire, and with the latter it is the Second Coming, the Messiah in the Apocalypse – the initial kavvanah with Torahkiel remaining the same, kavvanah upon the Holy Torah. These two give insight into the emergence of the Holy Gospel from the Torah, the Holy Gospel hidden within the Torah.

Now there are also four different ways to intone Yod-He-Vau-He corresponding with Hokmah, Binah, Tiferet and Malkut – with a, i, o and u, respectively; the kavvanot of these is the Tetragrammaton manifest as the corresponding Sefirah, four principle grades of the Light Transmission; if and when Shin is added, the inmost essential grade of Light Transmission becomes the kavvanah, or else, the Light Transmission of Messiah manifest in these four grades.

*As you might imagine, various permutations of the Great Name may be used to bring about different theurgic intentions.

All of this is knowledge of the Word of God manifest in the Light Continuum (Yahweh), corresponding to Divine Wisdom, Hokmah – Reshit, the point beyond which there is nothing knowable.

All of this contains knowledge of the Path of the Great Ascension; thus, when understood, the invocation of Metatron by this holy name can lead to prophetic consciousness when the Holy Spirit enters to illuminate and elevate the soul.

May all souls be drawn up in the Path of the Great Ascension – may all souls be as holy angels ascending and descending in the Mystical Body of the Risen Savior, the Supernal Merkavah; amen.

Shabbat Shalom!
