Middle Pillar: Straight Path

#1 Postby Tau Malachi » Sat Jun 17, 2017 11:04 am

Middle Pillar: The Path of Return

There are three principle Names of the Holy One that correspond with the Middle Pillar: Adonai, Yahweh and Eheieh. These Names of the Holy One hold the essential wisdom of the Path of Return, the ‘Straight Path.’ As Yohanan the Baptist taught, if you seek to return to God (Elohim), ‘go straight to God.’ Do not turn to the right or to the left, and do not turn back. ‘Go straight to God!’ This is the ‘Path of the Arrow,’ the ‘Straight Path,’ the Middle Pillar - Pillar of Compassion (Rehamim).

Listen and hear! I will share with you how to ‘go straight to God.’ I will share a heart essence teaching with you. It is my heart’s desire that you have this knowledge, and I pray to the Holy One that you may understand the meaning of these words; I pray that the Spirit of God (Ruach Elohim) reveals the meaning to you, and reveals to you the secret that only God can reveal.

These three Holy Names are within one another, Adonai is the outermost, and is as the ‘house’ of Yahweh and Eheieh; and Yahweh, the Great Name, is as the ‘body’ of Eheieh, the Essential Name, Eheieh being the inmost Holy Name, corresponding with the inmost secret. If you seek to go straight to God, beginning with Adonai, from one to another cleave to the Holy One in each Name, and seek unification with the Holy One in each Name, remembering what masters of the tradition have taught us, “He and His Name are One.”

Let me explain to you cleaving to the Holy Names.

Adonai, this is Malkut-Kingdom, and Adonai is the truth that God is always with you. God is within you, seated in your heart, and God surrounds you; God is within everyone, God is within everything, though, indeed, God is ever beyond all that appears, all that transpires. Adonai, this is God in all that transpires, in all that appears; this is God manifest as what is transpiring, as what is appearing, as everyone and everything, and you! Now, when you pray, when you invoke the Name of Adonai, go inside, go to the presence of God within your heart and cleave to that Living Presence, and merge with that Living Presence; as you pray, as you meditate, remember that God is with you, be aware of God within you and all around you, and so be in the Living Presence, and let God within you pray to God beyond you, let God pray to God! Pray in oneness, not twoness! This is cleaving to Adonai, and this is unification with Adonai. Understand!

Going inside, go deeper still; learning to pray, learn to meditate and seek to meditate deep, very deep! Praying, meditating, learn to see with God, and learn to hear with God, and learn to feel with God. Be and become the ‘body’ of God. Your eyes are the eyes of God, God is seeing through them! Your ears are the ears of God, God is hearing through them! Your heart is the heart of God, God is feeling through it! See with God, hear with God, feel with God, and in this way you will acquire knowledge of God, seeing as God sees, hearing as God hears, feeling as God feels, knowing as God knows; hence, with an inner knowing, with an illumined knowing in oneness with God. Praise God!

To see, hear and feel with God, however, to draw near and be in oneness, you need to clean yourself and change yourself. You cannot live outside any longer, but you must live inside; you cannot be an outsider any longer, but you must become an insider. You must go inside and live inside, not just when you pray and meditate, and worship God, but all of the time, in everything you do; going inside you must open your heart and soul, mind and life, to the Holy Light and Spirit from above, and receiving that Holy Light and Spirit - your anointing, you must integrate it with your entire being, your heart and soul, mind and body, and whatever does not accord with the Truth and Light revealed to you by the Spirit of God you must cut off or transform. Along with this you must cultivate the qualities of God - the Holy Sefirot; you need to cultivate all of the qualities of God in yourself, but most especially the quality of mercy, and the love and compassion of God. First and foremost you need to be merciful, you need to be kind, you need to be loving - to everyone! This is most important, most essential - seek to be kind, seek to be more and more polite, kind, to others, and engage in acts of loving-kindness, charity, good works.

If you do not clean yourself, if you do not change, if you do not cultivate the qualities of God in yourself, how will you be and become the ‘body’ of God? How will you see, hear and feel with God? How will you experience and realize oneness with God? Truly, to draw nearer, to experience oneness, you need to resemble God, you need to be ‘godly’ - sharing in the qualities of the Holy One. It is in this that cleaving and unification with Adonai is complete and perfect, opening the way for cleaving and unification with Yahweh within Adonai.

As you take up prayer and meditation in this way learning to see, hear and feel with God is a spiritual practice, and practicing it hold the conscious intention to see with God, hear with God and feel with God; and as with all things, all secrets and mysteries, ask God to teach you this, and show you this, so that you might know what it means to see and hear and feel with God, and have inner knowing of God, illumined knowledge of God.

Now, as has been said, you need to be polite, be kind, to everyone - you need to love as God loves; God loved you first, before you loved God, and so you have come to love God. Now you must learn to love first, before others love you, and you must seek to be polite, kind, and be more and more kind, more and more merciful. As you take up prayer and meditation in the way of this essential heart teaching, ask God to place God’s heart in you so that you might have God’s love and compassion in your heart, and then pray for greater love and compassion, pray that God takes your heart into God’s heart, that your heart and the heart of God might be one Sacred Heart - that you might know the perfect love of God, the love embodied in the Messiah. This is the key to cleaving and unification with Yahweh, and as you love and are compassionate, as you are forgiving and are merciful, you cleave to Yahweh, and invoking the Holy Name of Yahweh so you may experience oneness with the Infinite and Eternal in this Great Name.

Understand, as you are kind to people, as you love people, so you love God; but truly, it is God loving God - the image of God (Elohim) is in you, the image of God is in them, you are God, they are God - there is only God. Loving God, knowing God within all people, so loving people you love God and cleave to God, and in this is a deep experience of oneness with God - the Living Presence. Hallelu Yah!

So in this way your body becomes the ‘body’ of God and your heart becomes the ‘heart’ of God, but there is another step, as it were, in this walking with God; that your soul becomes the soul of God!

Going within, going deeper still, go even deeper - go beyond beyond! When it is given to you by God, rest your soul in the soul of God, and resting your soul in the soul of God, ask God to place the soul of God in you, as in the Messiah, the Anointed. When you rest your soul in the soul of God, so you may experience something of the One Soul - the One Soul from which all souls emanate, the soul of Adam Elyon (Supernal Human), the soul of the Messiah (Anointed One, Supernal Light); understand, all in a great and supreme mystery, the One Soul is the soul of God, it is inseparable from the Infinite and Eternal One. If you walk with God in this way, if you pray and meditate in this way, seeing, hearing and feeling with God, God will teach you this completion and perfection of oneness with God and bring your wisdom, understanding and knowledge (Habad) to fullness - God will reveal the secret to you! When your soul and the soul of God are one, this is cleaving to Eheieh, and with the revelation of the secret, invoking the Holy Name of Eheieh, so you will experience oneness with the Infinite and Eternal in this Essential Name, the secret of secrets being revealed in you.

This is a brief introduction to the heart essence teaching of ‘going straight to God’ that God wishes me to share. There are layers and layers of meaning in these words, and there is much more to be shared, but this is a good beginning, just as given in the moment. These are not teachings for beginners, nor for outsiders, but they are teachings for experienced initiates, insiders - those who have gone inside and live inside, and so already have some knowledge of God and the Holy Kabbalah. They are ‘pointing out instructions’ for those who have some experience and knowledge; I pray those to whom these teachings are given in the Living Presence may understand their hidden meaning and acquire wisdom through hearing them! Amen.

I will share some more when the Spirit moves and God wills it.

Yah! Yahweh! Yeshua! Hallelu Yah! Amen.


Yahweh Shalom!

Revelation of Secrets along the Way

Adonai is Malkut-Kingdom, the Holy Shekinah, and like Malkut, when your body is as the body of God, so God will fill you with the Light of the Messiah and Holy Spirit, influxes of the spiritual powers of all of the Sefirot (Divine Attributes); and you will be the dwelling place of the Holy Shekinah, the Living Presence - wherever you are, wherever you go, the good company of the Holy Shekinah will be in that place, heaven and God will be in that place. You do not need to go to a sacred mountain or temple to pray and meditate, or worship, but wherever you are that place is holy, and there you can pray and meditate, and worship in spirit and truth. The spirit and truth is oneness with God, and in oneness so the kingdom of heaven is within you and surrounds you. Understand, you are the dwelling place of Yahweh and the Holy Shekinah, filled with the Light of the Messiah - Infinite Light, and the Holy Spirit, you are the ‘church,’ the ‘holy temple,’ the true ‘house of God’ (Bet El) being your heart.

The holy place of prayer, meditation and worship is inside of you, not outside of you; inside of you is the place of light and life, and communion with the Holy One - you are lacking nothing!

Understand, the Light of the Messiah is the illumination of all of the prophets from Adam to Yeshua, and the Holy Spirit that fills you is the very same Spirit that brought the word of Yahweh to all of the the prophets, that gave them luminous dreams and visions, that revealed the secrets of heaven and God to them, giving them knowledge of God. When you make your body as the body of God, your heart as the heart of God, your soul as the soul of God and you reach oneness with God in body, heart and soul, so you also will have knowledge of God with understanding and wisdom, the secrets of the Holy One being revealed to you, the secret of yourself being revealed to you - you will know yourself, your Essential Self, and you will know the Supernal One.

See with God, hear with God and feel with God, and smell and taste and touch with God, and let your feet be the feet of God, your hands the hands of God, your mouth and lips the mouth and lips of God; let your body be as the body of God, walk with God in this way, be with God in this way. To realize this oneness in the body, and in the heart and the soul, you must pray and pray and pray, and learn the depths of prayer - meditation; you must go inside and hold this conscious intention, and kindle a passionate yearning for nearness and oneness with the Holy One and Shekinah, and you must ask God to reveal this oneness to you, you must pray and pray and pray until your intention, your desire, is fulfilled and the Holy One and Shekinah is manifest with, in and through you, and as you, just as with the holy prophets and tzaddikim before you.

As you pray, though, you need to pray in oneness, having faith in the truth of oneness, the good news of the Messiah; do not pray in the delusion of lack, do not pray in the illusion of separation, but pray in faith and love, cleaving to the Holy One in remembrance of your innate unity with the Holy One - let God cleave to God!

As you walk with God in this way cultivate love and compassion, and be merciful and be kind, and be more merciful and more kind, for as your body becomes as the body of God, so your heart must become as the heart of God - the love of God; therefore the Perfect Tzaddik, the Messiah, commanded us, saying, “Love one another as I have loved you.” So you must pray and pray and pray for the generation of the Sacred Heart - the love and compassion of the Messiah, the love and compassion of God; you must pray that God places God’s heart into your heart, and that God takes your heart into God’s heart. When your heart is God’s heart the Spirit of God will reveal secrets of God to you, great mysteries of heaven and God will be made known to you. Indeed! Remember, the thirty-two Paths of Wisdom are secret paths, and they are called ‘paths of the heart’; the true knowledge of these secrets of the Infinite One is revealed to those whose heart has become the heart of God - they are the knowers who understand, great tzaddikim.

These secret paths are in God’s heart, and when your heart is God’s heart God will real them to you; understand, it is only God that reveals secret mysteries, when tzaddikim reveal them God is revealing them, for all such revelations come from oneness, the knowledge of God. Understand this!

When your body is as the body of God, and your heart is as the heart of God, then God will reveal to you the oneness of your soul with the soul of God and how to realize that oneness and embody the One Soul; God will reveal the inmost secret to you, the secret of secrets, and it will be the enlightenment and liberation of your soul, true salvation! Hallelu Yah!

The inmost secret, the secret or secrets, no one but God can speak - you are the secret; but who can speak who and what you are in God save God, the Supernal One who spoke you into being, whose Infinite Light and Spirit is your soul, your true and essential being?

At this time I can explain no more. This is enough for now. Here I must stop and wait upon the Holy Spirit.

Yahweh Yahweh El!


Shalom!

Living Inside

The knowledge of God is not outside of you, it is inside you. Everything is inside you! The divine attributes, qualities, and secret paths, they are within your heart and soul, and God is in your heart and your soul is in God. If you seek true knowledge of God, knowledge of secret mysteries of God, and the secret of secrets, then you must go inside and live inside, and be open and sensitive to the Holy Light and Spirit of God, and you must pray and pray and pray, no longer from the outside in twoness, but from the inside in oneness. If you go inside and live inside and you pray and meditate in oneness, and you worship in oneness - remembering your innate unity with the Holy One, your innate perfection in the Holy One, the secret mysteries will be revealed and made known to you, the Spirit of God will reveal the secrets of God to you and you will acquire knowledge of God with understanding.

Going inside, you must go deeper still, going into the depths of your soul, your being, and rest your heart and mind in the very essence and nature of your soul, your being, as you are in the Holy One; rest your mind, consciousness, soul in its intrinsic nature - spacious radiant awareness. It is in this way that you can learn to see with God, hear with God and feel with God, and so walk with God and be with God in oneness - conscious union.

You must pray and pray and pray in faith and love, and so yearn and strive for this realization, co-laboring with the Spirit of God, Divine Grace, for the realization of oneness with the Anointed and God; and if, indeed, this is your desire in this life, then you will need to give everything for it, giving everything you are, everything within you, everything you have, as an offering to God. Understand, though, when you give everything to God - all of yourself and your life, so God will give you everything! In truth, you have nothing to give, for everything you are and everything you have comes from God. When you give, you are giving to God what is God’s, returning to God what is God’s. God, however, has everything to give, and when you give to God, God gives to you; returning everything to God, God will increase it and will return it to you tenfold, a hundredfold, and more, ten thousandfold, for God is the Supernal One, the Infinite and Eternal. Praise God!

You need to give generously, though, and you need to love passionately, for it is in this that you will resemble God and experience nearness and oneness with God - the Holy One. Those unwilling to give can receive nothing from God, just as those unwilling to go inside and live inside cannot find God so as to return to God. There must be love, the desire to give and give, the desire for giving and receiving, and there must be going inside and living inside; it is in this that God reveals Godself to those who seek God.

Understand, the Holy Sefirot (Divine Attributes) are inside, the impure, unholy klippot (husks, impure emanations) are outside. When we live outside we live in klippah nogah, the glowing husk, impure and false lights, and we live in the darkness of four great klippot. To come into the True Light, the Messiah and God, we need to go inside and live inside, otherwise we will continue to live in the ignorance and suffering of separation and the delusion of lack and will not recognize and realize the truth of oneness - our innate unity with the Holy Sefirot and the Infinite One (Ain Sof).

Understand, everything is inside you! You are lacking nothing! Yet, if you are an outsider, living outside, in the illusion of separation it is as though you have nothing and you are lacking; but do know and understand that is an illusion, unreal. In reality everything is inside you, God has placed it there with Godself, and you are lacking nothing.

When you first go inside and seek to live inside you have lived outside in impurity, in darkness and suffering, for a long time. There will be a need to struggle and strive to live inside and not fall back into living on the outside. You will need to cleanse yourself, or purify yourself, you will need to work to cut off the things that are outside, and to transform the outside through living inside and transforming the inside; you will need to cleanse your body, your life, and your heart and mind, and your soul, and live from the inside, transforming the outside to express and embody the inside, your inner being and Essential Self.

To cleanse yourself bathe in the waters of truth! Listen to the teachings and instructions of your tzaddik, your spiritual guide, and follow them. Pray and meditate daily, pray and meditate often throughout the day, and worship God in spirit and truth - oneness; joined with this, read the Holy Scriptures and Sacred Writings - study and contemplate, and seek your spiritual education, but not from the outside, in twoness, but rather from the inside, in oneness. Learn to read in oneness, learn to study and contemplate in oneness as an insider, no longer reading as an outsider, an unspiritual person.

See with the eyes of God - see in oneness! Hear with the ears of God - hear in oneness! feel with the heart of God - feel in oneness!

Everything is inside you! God is inside you! Be an insider! Understand, God is inside you, God is inside everyone and everything - God is the ultimate Insider. Be like God! Be like the Messiah! Go inside, live inside, be an insider!

What more do you need? What more do you want? What more is there? Everything is inside you! God is inside you! You just need to remember and realize what is within you and who is within you, and so bring forth who and what is inside you!

There is much more to be shared of these heart essence teachings, but I’ve explained enough for the moment. I shall rest in the Spirit and wait upon the Spirit, holding in my heart the wish, the prayer, that you, my friends, might glean the deeper meaning of these words, these teachings, and have this knowledge for yourselves.

Yahweh! Yahweh! Yeshua! Amen.

Yeshua Shalom!

Bathing in the River of Truth

The essential message of Yohanan and Yeshua teaches the Straight Path. Listen and hear it! “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near!” So it is said of Yohanan the Baptist that he taught a “baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sin” opening the way for people to enter into the kingdom of heaven - oneness with God (Elohim).

What does repentance mean? Return to God. Understand what this means, it means return to be One!

The true kingdom of heaven, the true kingdom of God, is the experience of oneness with God - conscious union with the Eternal One (Yahweh, Yeshua); returning to be One you enter into the kingdom while in this world, and so you will be in the kingdom when you depart this world, being established in the World-To-Come.

Through baptism, immersion in living waters, and the anointing with holy oil you are set upon the Path of Return - the Straight Path; hearing the gospel, the good news of oneness with the Messiah in God, through this outward gesture of surrender and self-offering you release the outside to go inside and live inside, you cleanse the body so that you may walk with God and be with God, so that your very body might become as the ‘body of God,’ your heart and soul the dwelling place of God (Makom). And so it is! Amen!

The anointing is the ‘seal of truth,’ the holy remembrance of your innate unity with the Holy One inside of you; hence the truth of your inwardness, that inwardly, in your inmost being, your Essential Self, you are the Messiah - the Holy Light and Spirit. You are the Holy One and the Holy One is you.

Having been baptized in the living waters and having outwardly received the anointing, so you must go inside and live inside, and you must open to the Holy Light and Spirit, opening your heart and soul, mind and life, to the Living Presence of the Holy One; receiving this inward anointing with the Holy Light and Spirit, then you need to clean the inside and change the inside, and as you clean and change the inside, so you will need to clean and change the outside so that the inside and outside are one, expressing your inner being and Essential Self. You will need to cultivate the qualities of God so that you resemble the Messiah, so that you resemble God, for it is in this that nearness and oneness is realized and embodied.

You will need to cleanse yourself and change yourself, inside and outside, and so truly return to be One, the inside and outside being one, you and the God being One; merging with the Holy One, be nullified in the Holy One so that there is only the Eternal One - Bornless Being!

To clean yourself, your heart and soul, your mind and body, you need to bathe in the waters of truth. God is Spirit, God is Truth, and you must bathe in the waters of truth, the Spirit of Truth! You need to pray and pray and pray, and pray deep, praying in oneness, meditating in oneness, and you need to cultivate, develop, the qualities of God in yourself - Godliness; above all you need to cultivate loving-kindness and acts of loving-kindness, seeking to be kind, forgiving, merciful and loving to everyone.

Joined with this, remembering that God is always with you, that God is in you and you are in God, that God surrounds you on all sides, that God is in everyone and everything, seek to see God in all - seek to see the good in all; God is the Truth, seeing God in everything so you are seeing truth, bathing in the waters of truth - the remembrance on oneness, the Holy One.

When you are with your holy tzaddik, your spiritual guide, listen and hear their teachings and instructions in oneness, and know that God is speaking, God is teaching and revealing secret mysteries; when you are entertaining spiritual discourse and fellowship with your sisters and brothers in the family of God, the enlightened family, so also listen and hear in oneness aware of God with you, aware of the Living Presence of God speaking as them and as you. Bathe in the waters of truth as the Spirit of Truth speaks and be cleansed and changed by the Truth that God Is!

With this, read in oneness, study and contemplate the Holy Torah and Gospel, and sacred writings, in oneness - see and hear all Holy Scripture in oneness, and bathe in the waters of truth flowing from them.

Through prayer, meditation and worship, through sacred discourse and through study and contemplation, bathe in the waters of truth, be cleansed and changed by the truth, be filled and illuminated with the Spirit of Truth - having been baptized so be immersed in the waters of truth, be in the Truth of the One (Amet Achad)!

Understand, the the very essence and nature of the Spirit of Truth, the Truth of the One, is love; be bathed in love, cleansed in love, changed in love - be perfect in love!

A ‘baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sin.’ Understand sin and death have never substantially self-existed, but they exist in the illusion of separation, the unreal, the ignorance; they exist because of the mingling of souls in self-grasping, desire and fear in a state of twoness as in adultery - sin, death, does not exist in oneness, does not exist in the Holy One. Through bathing in the waters of truth, through oneness and enacting what is good and true - faith and love in oneness, what is unreal, what is illusory, is dispelled and so there is forgiveness, freedom! Praise God!

In the Truth of the One all things return to their essence and nature, their foundation and origin - the Infinite and Eternal One; all that arises and appears self-liberates as it arises and appears, being what is it in its essence, nothing other than the One! Contemplate this well, and understand!

In closing I will share what I mean when I say that these teachings are not for beginners. I mean that they are not given for outsiders but they are given for those who are insiders, for those who have received initiation, gone inside, and have become acquainted with the Living Presence, those received in the Body of the Messiah - Anointed Community. Truly, to understand the deep meaning of these heart essence teachings a person must be inward, be inside and live inside, and be able to listen and hear as the Holy One speaks to the Holy One, for it is in this that the secret of these teachings is revealed, the Supernal One revealing it.

There is nothing more for me to explain in this moment. I shall rest the silence in me in the Great Silence God Is, waiting upon the Holy Spirit.

May the Spirit of Truth be with you this day! Amen.

Yeshua Shalom!

Three Roots & Six Essentials

The practice of the Three Roots and Six Essentials, these are teachings of the Straight Path when their inner meaning is understood.

Listen and hear, and understand!

The Three Roots are: 1) Remember that God is always with you; 2) Set your mind on those things that are above; 3) Remember your transcendence. These are the Three Roots and they correspond with the essential wisdom of the Straight Path.

‘Remember that God is always with you,’ be aware that God is within you and that God surrounds you on all sides, and be aware of God in everyone and everything, and so walk with God, see with God, hear with God and feel with God; let your eyes be the eyes of God, your ears the ears of God, your heart the heart of God, and so see, hear and feel in the Holy Spirit. Seek to abide in oneness with God, the Eternal One, first in faith and then in awareness, knowledge, direct experience of oneness, returning to be One. This is the meaning of remembering the God is always with you and understanding this you will know that this corresponds with reaching oneness with Adonai, Malkut.

‘Set your mind on those things that are above,’ set your mind on the attributes, the qualities of God, and cultivate the qualities of God so that you resemble God - the Messiah and Holy One, and experience greater nearness, deeper oneness with God, the True Light. Understand, cultivating the attributes, qualities of God - Godliness, most essential is loving-kindness, mercy, forgiveness - the Sacred Heart of love and compassion. As you make your body like the ‘body of God,’ so let your heart be the heart of God and love with the heart of God, have the love and compassion of God in you, loving God and loving all people, all sentient beings. Seek to be kind, polite, and more and more kind, more polite, and kindle passionate love for the Beloved - the Messiah and Holy One, desiring, seeking, only the Beloved, your will and your desire becoming the will and desire of the Beloved - the Supernal One. This is what it means to set your mind [heart] upon those things that are above, and understanding this you will know that this corresponds with reaching oneness with Yahweh, Tiferet.

‘Remember your transcendence,’ be aware of your innate unity with the Eternal God in your essence and nature; be aware of the supreme secret, the secret of secrets, that in your spiritual essence, in your inmost being, you are the Holy One and the Holy One is you. When your body becomes as the ‘body of God’ and your heart becomes as the ‘heart of God,’ then let your soul become the ‘soul of God’; when your soul merges with the One Soul, which is the Soul of God, the Supernal One will reveal the secret to you and your oneness with God and knowledge of God will be perfect and complete, you will be and become as the Messiah, fully resembling the Anointed of God. This is what it means to remember your transcendence and understanding this you will know that this corresponds with reaching oneness with Eheieh, the Supernals.

Concerning the holy and enlightened ones who reach Eheieh it is written:

“Without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but resembling the Son of God [they] remain a priest forever” (Hebrews 7:3).

It is also written:

“Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet” (Psalm 110:1).

In this, perhaps, you may understand that these heart essence teachings are a branch of the Melchizedek Transmission in our lineage; they are a variation the teachings of the Great Natural Perfection and the Way of Perfection communicated in a simple and essential way, a devotional way. This is what the Straight Path is, it is the Way of Perfection; hence, the wisdom of the Order of Melchizedek.

Joined with the practice of these Three Root, three gradations of nearness, oneness in the Straight Path, there is the practice of the Six Essentials. The Six Essential are: 1) Cleave to the Messiah and Holy One; 2) Cleave to the Holy Tzaddik - the spiritual guide; 3) Cleave to Anointed Community - enlightened family, the family of God; 4) Hitbodedut - deep prayer and meditation, and contemplation; 5) Charismatic worship - Spirit filled worship; 6) Acts of loving-kindness, good works - charity.

‘Cleave to the Messiah and Holy One,’ cleaving is the awareness of oneness, abiding in oneness, just as taught in the Straight Path; it is going inside and living inside and merging with the Messiah and Holy One within you, seeing, hearing and feeling with the Holy One and Shekinah - the Living Presence, returning to be One.

‘Cleaving to the Holy Tzaddik’ - the guide. Understand, a true tzaddik, a true guide in the One Way, has reached to Eheieh (Supernal One), and they have realized and embodied oneness, and as such they have intimate knowledge of the Way and The Name, having become the Way and The Name, and they are the Living Presence walking in this world, and are able to impart the fullness of the Light Transmission and Holy Spirit, holding, as it were, all blessings and empowerments. They are a knower of God (Gnostic), and so they can teach the knowledge of God and set souls upon the Path of Return, and lead them in the Way until those souls also reach and realize oneness. All who have reached throughout the generations have received assistance and intervention from a guide. The deep relationship between the guide and their companions in the Way is completely integral to the realization of the One Way, which is Love, and is Unity and Peace. Those who go inside will understand this love-play, this play of Light Transmission, and they will long for it and seek it out - they will seek for their guide; for inwardness reveals the One in others and in oneself, and the One in oneself has a deep desire to know the One in others, to seek the delight and fulfillment of love in others, for there is the awareness, or intuitive sense, there is no ‘other’ but the Holy One - the Beloved. Those who say they need no guide and no community because “everything is within them” are outsiders and remain in twoness, the illusion of separation, the ignorance, and as yet do not understand what “everything” means and what “oneness” means. Understand, the guide is the emanation of the Living Presence, the Beloved to us, bringing us into the perfection of love, the ‘bridal chamber,’ so that we may be One - so that we may experience conscious union, the realization of oneness. The appearance of guide is the Beloved engaged in love-play with you, courting you, seeking to bring you into union. In truth, the guide appearing before you is inside of you and you are inside the guide, just as God is in you and you are in God; everything in truth exists in oneness, and your dance with the guide is integral to recognizing and realizing oneness, returning to be One. Being received by the guide to whom you are given by the Holy Spirit cleave to them, do not engage them in twoness, as an outsider, but seek to engage them in oneness, in love, as an insider, so that you might receive the fullness of their love and knowledge, and so have the fullness of the love and knowledge of God in you, perfection in the Supernal One.

‘Cleave to Anointed Community.’ this goes hand in hand with cleaving to your guide, for the guide is the community and the community is the guide, and being received by the guide so you are the community and the community is you; as your guide is the Living Presence so also the community, your sisters and brothers, and you, are the Living Presence, all the Body of the Messiah, the Heart of the Messiah and Soul of the Messiah - the Holy One, the Perfect One.

Understand, cleaving to the guide and community - the family of God, is very essential for the realization of oneness, for therein you learn how to love and you cultivate love and actualize love, realizing the single commandment of the Holy Gospel: “Love one another has I have loved you.” Having this with your guide and community - the family of God, so you will have it to take into the world for all people.

‘Cleaving,’ this is faith in the truth of oneness, awareness of oneness, abiding in oneness, and it is through this that the final three Essentials are fulfilled, and it is this that the final three Essential actualize, realize and embody.

‘Hitbodedut,’ spiritual retreat, going inside and living inside, praying, meditating and contemplating in oneness with the Messiah and Holy One, Tzaddik and Anointed Community - all the One, and you the One; no longer pray in twoness, separation, but in oneness - Sacred Unity.

‘Charismatic worship,’ Spirit-filled worship, worship in spirit and truth - oneness; let it be that the One worships the One, the One prays to the One, the One meditates upon the One, and so commune and abide in oneness - Sacred Unity.

‘Acts of loving-kindness, good works, charity,’ this is the active compassion and love of the Holy One, embodiment of oneness - Sacred Unity; the One being kind to the One, caring for the One, loving the One - all the One, all your very self, your inner being and Essential Self.

In this is the expression of cleaving, nearness, oneness, and in this is the realization and embodiment of cleaving, nearness, oneness. Understand, it is this simple! What else is there? What else do you need or want? This is everything, everything is inside you, and when you bring forth what is inside you, so you will have everything; when you give, you receive, when you give everything, you receive everything - God will give you Godself! Already this is the great treasure, the pearl of great price, the secret is within you - it is hidden deep inside you, but with God’s help and the help of your guide you must realize this and bring it forth from within you - so you cleave, you abide in oneness, walking with the Lord (Adonai, Yahweh), and you pray, meditate and contemplate in oneness, and worship in oneness, and you love the Lord, your Beloved, and you love all people, all sentient beings.

If you take up the Three Roots and Six Essentials in this way, if you walk with God in this way, you will experience deeper and deeper nearness, oneness, and you will acquire knowledge of God with understanding and wisdom.

Understand, this Straight Path - the One Way, is the very essence of the Holy Kabbalah, and as you sojourn in the Way, walking with God in oneness, you will have greater and greater knowledge of the Holy Kabbalah, not as an outsider through theology and concepts, but as an insider through direct experience of God, direct experience of revelation and realization of God - you will be and become a knower of God (Gnostic), and yet more, you will be and become the Anointing (Messiah).

You must bring forth what is within you. Understand, what comes from you is for you; and likewise, what comes to you is for you, because it comes from you. Contemplate this well, and understand!

This is enough. The Holy Spirit does not wish anything more explained at the moment.

May many be set upon the Straight Path this day, and be well established in the One Way - love, unity and peace; may those who read these words be blessed to understand their deeper meaning and so acquire knowledge of the Holy One in this life! Amen.

Yeshua Shalom!

Tzaddik & Community

The Messiah is the ‘head,’ the Tzaddik is the ‘heart’ and the Community is the ‘body,’ and they are One Holy Body, One Living Presence; being received, receiving your anointing with the Holy Light and Spirit, you are this Holy Body, the Tzaddik is your heart, the Messiah is your head, and as you make your body as the ‘body of God’ (Elohim) so more and more the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, indwells you and you are One in the Lord (Adonai). Praise the Lord!

The greater your cultivation of the attributes, qualities of God, the greater the influx of the Holy Shekinah, the Holy Light and Spirit of God into you, and the deeper your experience of nearness, oneness, with the Messiah, with heaven and God. From the very outset, being received as a companion of the tzaddik, being received in community, you are One, but the Holy One is One-Without-End, therefore there are countless gradations of nearness, oneness, with the Messiah in the Holy One, going deeper and deeper into the interiors of the Sefirot, going beyond, and going beyond beyond. This is the perfect joy, perfect delight, of souls in the World-To-Come, and so also in this world for those who return to be One, those anointed with the Holy Light and Spirit - Shekinah of Messiah. Praise God!

Understand, the tzaddik, the spiritual guide, is one who has reached, and so they can guide seekers in the Way; they are One and they are the Way, and if you are willing, if you are loving, and you desire it, they will take you by the hand and lead you in the Way, and they will teach you and show you how to reach, how to realize your spiritual essence and complete oneness, oneness with Adonai, oneness with Yahweh, oneness with Eheieh. They will take you by the hand and walk with you, walking with God, and they will put their heart and soul into you, and impart their knowledge and power (da’at and ruach), and so they teach and initiate, imparting something of the knowledge and power of their realization, opening the way for you to realize and reach as they have realized and reached.

Understand, they are One and they are the Way, the community is One and the community is the Way, and you are One and you are the Way - every person is a way, and every person in their inmost being is the Way; a tzaddik, a spiritual guide, though, has realized and reached oneness, they are awake, the fullness of the Living Presence, the Holy Light and Spirit, is in them, and therefore in the Living Presence they can offer spiritual assistance and intervention, helping you overcome barriers (klippot), helping you reach from one grade of nearness, oneness, to another from Adonai to Eheieh.

There are, however, guides and there are guides, lesser tzaddikim and greater tzaddikim, those reaching Yahweh and those reaching Eheieh, all tzaddikim; reaching Yahweh - fullness of the heart of God, the Sacred Heart, and oneness in love and compassion, this is the ordination of a true holy tzaddik - ‘heart’ of the Holy Body. The culmination of this ordination is the elevation, consecration, of reaching Eheieh - fullness of the One Soul, Soul of Messiah or the Holy One, oneness in being, I Am, I Shall Be. As you might inuit there are many grades of nearness, oneness, within these two great grades, many grades of spiritual and supernal realization, many grades of tzaddikim; but understand, to the seeker, to the disciple, follower or student, there would be no difference, no distinction, there would only be the holy tzaddik, the spiritual guide or ‘shepherd,’ and they are the manifestation of the Living Presence (Anointing) to the aspirant, in the Way of Perfection - knowledge of God.

There is the Holy Tzaddik, and there is the gathering of companions around them - Anointed Community, and among their companions are disciples, followers and students. There are those who draw very close, who walk hand in hand with them, as it were, who receive the fullness of their heart and soul, and as much of their knowledge and power as can be given and received, and there are those who draw close, walking with them in near proximity, but not that close, and they receive of the heart and soul of tzaddik, and the knowledge and power of tzaddik, all as they desire and are able to receive, and then there are those who hold themselves at a distance, who draw upon something of the teachings of the tzaddik, teachings of the Way, but who do not seek and receive initiation - light transmission, direct blessings and empowerments. Understand, what we are speaking about is not outward, is not physical proximity, but is inward, is spiritual proximity, it is in spirit and truth, in the mind and heart, and the soul; the reality of closeness or distance in the sacred friendship with tzaddikim is inward, on a spiritual level, and cannot be determined by outward appearances or circumstances, but rather it is determined by the interior life, living inside, and the depth to which each individual is inclined to reach inside, living as an insider - a knower of God. From the perspective of the tzaddik all are loved just the same, all are the One, they place their heart and soul into all just the same, all are the Beloved, and so they hold all in their heart, all in their soul, and give freely to each, all as is good to give, all as each desires to receive and is able to receive; truly, whether an outsider or an insider in the heart of the tzaddik - the heart of the One, there is no difference, but there is the desire for the return of all to the Holy One, the desire for the enlightenment and liberation of all. This is the motivation of tzaddikim, for having knowledge of God they desire that all might have knowledge and freedom - the truth of oneness, innate unity with the Holy One, that heals and redeems, and sets souls free!

It has been said, “everything is inside you.” Understand, tzaddik and community are inside you, and you are inside tzaddik and community; going inside this is known, and so insiders seek out tzaddik and community understanding that through tzaddik and community what is inside of them will be drawn out and made manifest, realized and embodied - understanding that to reach there is a need for a guide who has reached, and for the companionship of enlightened family, sisters and brothers who live inside, who are insiders, and so encourage and support those who want to live inside, those who seek knowledge of God, oneness with God.

As to exactly what the relationship between a tzaddik and companion will be, that is for the companion to determine, very close, not so close or distant, all as given by God, all as each wills and desires; whatever the connection and exchange of soul sparks it will be good and there will be progress walking with God, progress in the Way. Praise God!

Remember, whether realized or unrealized, the truth of oneness remains, the truth of the innate unity of your inmost being with the Holy One - the ‘Great Natural Perfection’; and in the Messiah, the Anointing, with tzaddik and community, there is the play of Divine Grace, and the possibility of a swift Thunderbolt Enlightenment - swift realization of oneness. This is possible with anyone at anytime, for this is the truth of the spiritual essence of everyone, the inmost being of all - the Holy One.

Remember, with God anything is possible!

May you enjoy your rest in God this Holy Day! Amen.

Shabbat Shalom!

Be With God

“Cleave to the Holy One and the Messiah, cleave to the Holy Tzaddik, cleave to Anointed Community” - be with God!

When you are with your tzaddik seek to see with God, hear with God and feel with God - be with God, and understand who you are with, understand who is speaking; seeing, hearing and feeling with the One, being with the One, you will understand that the mouth and lips of the tzaddik are the mouth and lips of the One, you will know the Holy One is speaking with you, praying and meditating with you, enacting sacred ceremony with you - the Living Presence of the Holy One. When your tzaddik, your spiritual guide speaks, you will become aware of an energetic transmission within and behind their words - the Holy Light and Spirit of the Messiah, the light of all of the prophets and apostles of God, and aware of the communication of the light and spirit, the fiery-intelligence of the Supernal One, so you will experience great blessings and empowerments through hearing the Living Word, and it may come to pass that you experience a heart-to-heart, mind-to-mind or soul-to-soul transmission of Habad (wisdom, understanding and knowledge), and that you may have direct experience of something of the secret mysteries spoken, or a corresponding grade of nearness, oneness, with the Holy One.

In order to receive the energetic transmission within and behind the words of teachings, though, you must be present in faith and love, with an open heart and mind, drawing near and cleaving with your heart and soul; you must look and see, listen and hear, and feel, in oneness, seeing, hearing and feeling with God, in God, as God. Understand, when your tzaddik, your spiritual guide speaks, the One is speaking to the One, God is revealing Godself to God - it is from God, to God and for God. This is the secret of new teachings and revelations that are given and received, they are from the Holy One, to the Holy One and for the Holy One - no other! Do you understand? I pray that you may understand this, and more so that you may experience receiving and giving in this way - revelation of the Divine in the Living Presence, Living Spirit.

The way of the knowers of God (Gnostics) is a path of initiation. There is a play of energetic transmission - Light Transmission, and one who has reached embodies this ‘Light-presence and Light-power’ and can communicate it to those who draw near in faith and love; in this Living Presence there is a flow of blessings and empowerments, and there is a play of healings and wonders - all actions of the Holy One, the Shekinah, the Living Spirit, moving with, in and through tzaddik and community, and manifest as tzaddik and community. There is, indeed, the outer form of initiation, baptism in water, anointing with oil and the feast of bread and wine, but true initiation is something more, it is one who has reached elevating souls to higher grade, leading them to reach, and communicating something of the knowledge and power of their spiritual or supernal realization to other souls, opening the way for others and empowering them to reach, empowering them to enter into the same spiritual or supernal realization.

Understand, though, that the holy tzaddik is as a mirror reflecting your inner being, your essential self to you; they have reached, and the desire you to reach, to realize who and what you are in your inmost being, your spiritual essence, who and what you have always been and always will be - an emanation of the Eternal One, bornless being. The Holy One is within them, the Living Presence of the Holy One surrounds them on all sides - they embody this self-realization; but you see, the Holy One is within you and surrounds you, and they wish you to remember and realize this, and so have true knowledge of God through conscious union with God - God Consciousness, and so have the experience of the fullness of the light and love of God, true salvation - enlightenment and liberation. This is the desire of the holy tzaddik for you, the love of the tzaddik for you - this is the desire of God for you, God’s love!

The Gospel of Truth is the awareness of oneness, the innate unity of all souls with the Infinite and Eternal One, and your tzaddik, your guide, is the One reflecting the One in you; in your spiritual essence you are the One and the One is you - not in your ego, but your inmost being, your essence, and they labor for your remembrance and realization of this truth, this great secret. Thus, they will take you by the hand and lead you in the Way, if you are willing, and they will place their heart and soul into you, and take your heart and soul into themselves, and so teach you and show you how to go inside and reach, how to realize your innate unity with the Holy One of Being. Truly, though, it is God revealing Godself to God, it is the Holy One awakening the Holy One, God gathering God into Godself. Do you understand? I pray that you do!

God is always with you - be with God!

This is what I'm inclined to share in the Holy Spirit this morning. It is my heart-wish that you might be able to hear the deeper meaning within and behind these words, their deeper intention in the One.

May Yahweh, the Merciful and Compassionate One, bless you and keep you! Amen.

Yahweh Shalom!

The Play of God Reaching

When you are seeking, God is seeking, when you are reaching, God is reaching! Do you understand? The very desire to seek God and to reach, to experience and realize nearness, oneness, with God is the manifestation of your spiritual essence and the Spirit of God in you. Truly, God is seeking God, God is reaching God, God is actualizing and realizing Godself in you, revealing God to God in you. This is the truth of Divine Grace in the Messiah, the Anointing, the truth of salvation through grace, and grace alone; for God in you, the Messiah and Holy Spirit in you, accomplishes the Work of Salvation in you, seeking and finding, and reaching, until indeed you “rule over all,” God in you rules over all. Understand this, and do not doubt that you can reach, that you can experience spiritual or supernal realization, but abide in your faith and love, and cleave to the Messiah, Tzaddik and Community, placing your hope in the Lord (Adonai, Yahweh), and the Lord will heal and redeem you.

There is reaching, and there is reaching, and there is reaching, and there are countless gradations of nearness, oneness; there is the reaching of Adonai, the reaching of Yahweh, the reaching of Eheieh, each a greater and greater nearness, a deeper and deeper oneness, with the Holy One of Being. According to the Holy Kabbalah the grade of Adonai is accessible to all, and as such even outsiders may taste or glimpse the nearness, oneness with Adonai in peak moments of spiritual experience, in prayer and worship. Understand, Adonai manifests as the life and light of all things, the life and light of everything and everyone throughout the matrix of creation, the life and light in you and all that you perceive. The life and light within you, in your very body, your flesh and blood, in your breath and the beat of your heart, your eyes and ears, mouth and nose, your entire material and spiritual being, is the manifestation of Adonai - the exterior Shekinah; in your physical being itself, aside from your spiritual being, you have an innate unity with Adonai. When you are aware of this, when you experience this, you are ‘reaching Adonai,’ and when you recognize and realize this truth fully reaching and not-reaching becomes reaching - the realization of Adonai.

Your body and life becomes as the body and life of God - Adonai, as though the Lord takes up your person and life, and is living with, in and through you, and as you. This experience is not far removed from you, but rather it is the simple truth of your being, physical, astral, spiritual and supernal - it is the simple truth of the light and life that is in you, that you are; you just need to remember it, recognize and realize it!

The reaching of Adonai forms the foundation for the reaching of Yahweh and Eheieh. If, indeed, there is reaching of Adonai, so you will seek to cultivate the qualities of Adonai - the Holy One, and most especially the quality of loving-kindness, mercy, the love of the Holy One; experiencing the oneness with Adonai, so you will yearn for the fullness of the love of the Holy One, that your heart might be the heart of the Holy One, the love and compassion of the Holy One for all. In the midst of this yearning, this passionate desire, so you will begin to taste, glimpse, this immeasurable love, and you may begin reaching Yahweh, and experience oneness with the heart and mind of the Holy One. Understand, when you open your heart, when you love as God loves, so your mind opens and you may experience the mind of God with the love of God - profound knowledge of God. Thus, reaching Yahweh there is the experience of oneness with the ‘body,’ ‘heart’ and ‘mind’ of the Holy One, and when this oneness of realized so you may reach into the soul and essence of the Holy One and experience the oneness with the soul and essence of the Holy One, or the being of the Holy One (Supernal Being).

When you reach into Eheieh, nearness, oneness with the soul and essence of the Eternal One the secret of secrets will be revealed to you; the Holy One reveals this secret, no other reveals it, and this great and supreme secret is the enlightenment and liberation of souls - true salvation. Praise God!

Understand, there are these three great grades of nearness, oneness, and they are within one another, Yahweh within Adonai, Eheieh within Yahweh, Adonai the outermost, Eheieh the inmost, and there are countless gradations of nearness and oneness within these three great gradations of nearness and oneness with the Infinite and Eternal; but know that they are all interconnected, and in our experience they are not as linear or sequential as they might sound in a provisional teaching. Remember that there is a play of reaching and not-reaching until there is full reaching, and understand that there can be reaching and not-reaching into any of these gradations of nearness, oneness, from the very outset of being set upon the Straight Path through Divine Grace, even a tasting and glimpsing of the inmost grade of Eheieh. Indeed, long before there is full reaching, realization, there is this play of reaching and not-reaching, and it is through this that there can be full reaching, realization. Thus again and again you can be uplifted into inner and inmost gradations of nearness, oneness, by the Holy Spirit, and likewise through the ongoing play of Light Transmission with tzaddik and community, and so be empowered for full reaching, full spiritual or supernal realization. This is not far removed from you, not in the least, but rather it is the truth of your soul, your being, as you are in heaven and God, and receiving your anointing already your realization is established, accomplished, in the Messiah; and so it shall come to pass that God within you shall bring you into conscious union with God ever beyond you, that the Spirit of God will bring about the full realization of oneness with God - the Supernal One, in you, as you. If you will co-labor with the Spirit of God - Divine Grace, if you will strive with God to reach the full realization of oneness, this Work of Salvation will be accomplished in you, in this life, and in death and the afterlife. This is the teaching of the Holy Gospel, the good news of the Messiah! Praise God!

Abide in faith and love and do not doubt this! Abide in faith and do not give way to doubt, and pray and pray and pray, and God will answer your prayers and you will reach. Already unity with the Holy One is the truth, the reality of your inner being and Essential Self, you need only remember, you need only recognize and realize this, and embody this truth - inwardly this is who and what you are, an emanation of the Supernal One!

This is what the One would have me share today.

May you be blessed to hear in oneness and understand! Amen.

Yahweh Shalom!

The Messengers of Heaven

It is well known that there are souls who are anointed as messengers of heaven - prophets and apostles, those who come into this world bearing a message and vision for the people in their time and place. Yohanan, Yeshua and Mirya were among these great holy and enlightened ones, and throughout the generations, even in our own times, such messengers of heaven are among us. Understand, though, that the messengers of heaven manifest with and act through a matrix of souls all inwardly interconnected and joined in the One, and likewise understand that the message they bear is delivered by many souls, not just a single individual. We see this with Adonai Yeshua, the Messiah, for there was an entire matrix of souls of higher grades incarnate with him, and the message of heaven he embodied many took up and delivered it, becoming messengers themselves and enacting the very same self-offering for the redemption of others, all in the love of God, the Sacred Heart.

Listen and hear this with the ‘ears of God,’ in oneness, and understand! Having received the Gospel of Truth - the truth of oneness, the way of love, unity and peace, and having received your anointing, so you are a messenger, so you have a message for the people, for those who desire to receive it. Whether or not you bear the specific anointing and mission of a messenger of heaven, you have a message from heaven, you are a message from heaven and God - the One. This is the very nature of a human being, a ‘speaking one,’ in nearness, in oneness; the Living Word, the Living Spirit, is in them, and they are a messenger of the One and they bear blessings of the One. Receiving the Messiah - the Anointing, living inside, living in oneness, you are ordained in a sacred priesthood, you have a message, a word of the Lord (Adonai), and are empowered to bless, empowered to draw the spiritual essence of things into them, and to draw something of the spiritual essence of people from within them.

The simplicity of the One Way - the way of love, unity and peace, the Straight Path - oneness, is the message you carry and need to convey; but also, understand, you have a unique message, you are the message - it is who and what you are in the One, it is you merged with the Holy One and Shekinah, being who you are in the One. Perhaps there are thoughts and words to be communicated, perhaps there are certain actions, works, to be done, but the message you bear, the message you are, is something more than thoughts and words - it is being in oneness with the Messiah and Holy Spirit, being the unique individual that you in the One and living as who you are in the One. In this is your message, and in this are the special blessings that you bring into this world, into this time and place.

In oneness, though, it is the One speaking the Living Word to the One, it is the One imparting the Living Spirit to the One - all the awakening of the One, the return of the One to be One; it is from the One, to the One, for the One. Indeed, it is a message of holy remembrance, the stirring and awakening of souls in the One.

If you understand the teachings of the Straight Path - innate unity, you will understand that this is an important message for the people, and you will understand that your realization of nearness, oneness, with God is important, not only for the sake of yourself in yourself, but for the sake of of yourself in others, opening the way for others to realize nearness, oneness, and be who they are in the One God.

Truly, when you know that God is within you and that God surrounds you on all sides, and that God is within everything and everyone, and you know that in your spiritual essence God is you and you are God, so you will know yourself in others and others in yourself, and you will have the love of God, and unity and peace.

Understand, the unique message of the One and oneness you carry is woven into you. You are the message. You will not realize it outside of you, but only inside of you, going inside and living inside, acquiring knowledge of yourself, your inner being and spiritual essence in the One - Ain, ‘no-thingness.’ Living from within, from the inside, living from the One - the Wisdom of Ain, so the message will be ‘spoken and delivered,’ it will simple flow from within you, shine from within you.

Aware you are a messenger of God, as you carry your message of heaven, remember that others are also messengers and listen and hear the message that they carry, and remember, the message isn’t about the messenger, but the One sending the message and and the One to whom it is sent - the Holy One of Being, the Ain, Ain Sof, Or Ain Sof. Contemplate this well, and understand!

You are a message of God, you are a word of God, you are The Name of the One; but you must recognize and realize this, you must understand what this means, you must learn the secret from the Holy One - Adonai, Yahweh, Eheieh.

I pray you understand the meaning of these words, I pray the Holy One reveals the secret to you! Amen.


Shalom Aleichem!

Hands of God: Laying On Hands

You are a messenger, you have been given the message of the One God - oneness with God, and abiding in oneness you are the message, and the message you are is unique, it is you in the One, as the One, emanating from the One - Ain, Ain Sof, Or Ain Sof. When you abide in oneness you are the message, you are the Living Word, the Living Presence, the One is speaking you, the One is manifesting as you, and the qualities, actions, spiritual powers of the Holy One are in you, the blessings of the Holy One, all spiritual and material bounty - shefa of the Sefirot. Thus, you have a message and blessings to give, and abiding in oneness you speak the message, being the message, and you bring blessings to people, to the land, to the world; you bring the mercy of the Holy One, the love and compassion of the Holy One, the peace of the Holy One.

Seek to see, hear and feel with God, seek to smell, taste and touch with God, be with God, go with God, let your body be as the body of God, your heart as the heart of God, your mind as the mind of God, your soul as the soul of God - be in the Messiah, the Anointing, be one with the Messiah in God, the Supernal One - Eheieh. Abiding in oneness cultivate the qualities, attributes, of God, and be merciful, be loving, be kind, and seek to be more and more kind, and in loving-kindness bless people, bless the land, bless all creation.

In the play of reaching and not-reaching, pray and pray and pray - meditate deep, and continue to pray, meditate, until you reach, and reaching bring the message, bring the blessings, that are in you, that you are; pray and pray and pray - meditate, not for yourself alone, but but for the people, the land, the entirety of creation and all creatures - be kind, be more and more kind, pray more and more for others, meditate deeper and deeper for others, more and more hold others in your heart and mind, and gather them into the oneness, uplift them to the Holy One.

Praying for others, meditating for others, you bless others, but it is also given for you to impart direct blessings, empowerments, praying over people, with people, and laying on hands, and anointing, imparting something of the Holy Light of the Messiah, communicating something of the Holy Spirit, Holy Shekinah. When you are moved in the Living Presence to do this, when it is given in the Living Spirit, abiding in oneness remember the breath of God in you - let your breath be the radiant holy breath of God, and in oneness, with your body as God’s body, so let your hands be God’s hands. Laying on hands, touch with God - let your hands be God’s hands, and let God touch and speak and breathe through you, as you, the Living Spirit moving with, in and through you, the Living Presence manifesting as you. This is the way to impart blessings, this is the way to engage in spiritual assistance, spiritual intervention - Divine Intervention. Understand!

It is the same with baptism and anointing in initiation, just the same; merge with the Living Presence, the Holy Shekinah, the Holy Spirit, and let the Living Presence manifest as you initiating - the Holy Light and Spirit coming from God, to God, for God. The Holy One is in you, the Holy One is around you, the Holy One is in the person you are with, the Holy One is around the person you are with, you are in them, they are in you, there is only the Living Presence of the Holy One - the Shekinah of Yahweh, Yeshua. Do you understand?

The oil in the hand of God is holy and powerful, it is the oil of anointing, anointing for initiation, for healing, for blessing, for empowerment - it is the spiritual power and essence the Holy One intends in that moment, the intention you hold in that moment. Do you understand?

I pray that you understand, I pray that you know what I mean. This is my heart-wish for you, this is my heart-wish for the people.

When you bless, when you seek to seek to impart something of the Life and Light Divine, when you seek to communicate something of the Living Spirit, the Living Presence, do so in the fullness of faith, do not be double-minded, do not doubt, but have faith in the Messiah, the Anointing, have faith in oneness with the Holy One; whether in faith or in knowledge, awareness, abide in oneness, merged with the Living Presence, the Holy Shekinah. This is the way to initiate, to bless and empower; you do not do this, I do not do this, the Holy One and Shekinah does this, the Messiah and Holy Spirit does this, moving with, in and through us, and manifesting as us.

Many of you, I’ve shown this to you, some of you many, many times, in many, many different movements of contemplation, prayer, meditation and ceremony; you have seen, you have heard, you have felt and you know this dance of the Living Presence, you are well acquainted with the truth of oneness - so take this up and give what you have received in faith and love, and share the knowledge and power of the Holy One that is in you, the Light-presence and Light-power that is in you.

As I shared early in this cycle of teaching, this is not a teach for the beginner, the novice, but it is a teaching for experienced initiates - those who live inside, those who are experiencing the play, the dance, of reaching and not-reaching, those who have truly received initiation - the Messiah, Anointing. Understand, this is not a “New Age” teaching. I’m not speak to your ego, seeking to puff up your ego. When I say that in your spiritual essence you are the One and the One is you I’m not talking about your ego - the ego is the great barrier between ones soul and God! Get rid of it! Truly, in oneness ego-grasping vanishes, there is self-transcendence, self-negation, there is only the the One God, the Holy One - Ain, ‘No-Thingness.’

Understand, in oneness you are nothing (ain), the Holy One is everything, and is you. Contemplate this well, and understand!

I pray that you understand, and I pray that you may have this knowledge of God; I pray the Holy One reveals the secret of secrets to you and blesses you with wisdom, the Wisdom of Ain! Amen.

Shabbat Shalom!

Contemplation & Meditation

I have said that if you seek to reach and realize oneness with the God you must pray and pray and pray - you need pray daily, you need pray often, but by ‘prayer’ I mean something more than thoughts and words offered in the Divine Presence, I mean contemplation (hitbonenut) and meditation (hitbonenut) - deep and prolonged meditation. Thus, pray and pray and pray, engaging intense contemplation, deep meditation, going inside, and going deeper and deeper still into the very essence of your soul, your inmost being. Understand, the essence of your soul, your inmost being, is inseparable from the Holy One, and as we know the Holy One is Ain, no-thingness, emptiness; passing into no-thingness, abiding in no-thingness, the experience of oneness arises, the realization that there is nothing but the Holy One and the Holy One alone, there is no other, there is no substance or existence other than the One, the Infinite and Eternal.

In deep meditation you pass into ain, no-thingness, you transcend the body, the ego is nullified, emotions and thoughts, the ordinary intellect and imagination are transcended, and there is an experience of pure radiant awareness and oneness; abiding in this, abiding in deep meditation, there may be a dawning of the ‘Big Mind’ (Mochin Gadlut), as though the ‘Mind of God,’ and with the Mind of God so also the experience of the ‘Heart of God’ and the ‘Body’ of God - infinite light, radiance, of the Supernal Crown and Divine Attributes (Sefirot). This requires, however, frequent deep and prolonged meditation, abiding, resting in the Ain Nature, no-thingness; and so, indeed, you must ‘pray and pray and pray,’ and as you learn to be inside and wait upon the Spirit of the Lord in this way, so you must clean yourself and change yourself, cultivating the attributes, qualities, of the Messiah and Holy One.

Going inside, and going deeper still, this only happens through contemplation and meditation - deep ‘prayer,’ and if you wish to live inside and reach, realizing oneness, then you need to take up contemplation and meditation each day, and on Shabbat you will need to dedicate more time for contemplation and meditation, seeking to go even deeper in meditation, intimate communion. Joined with this, from time to time it is good, and necessary, to go on spiritual retreat, and to pray and meditate in spiritual retreat for prolonged periods, driving deeper still into meditation, into your inner being and spiritual essence, leaving the world behind to seek heaven and the Holy One.

We have spoken about bathing in the river of truth, the contemplation of the Holy Torah and Gospel, and secret wisdom of the Holy Kabbalah. Know that the very act of study and contemplation with full concentration (kavvanah) and cleaving (devekut) may bring you into a state of deep meditation - contemplation (hitbonenut) naturally leads to meditation (hitbodedut). Likewise, contemplation of the presence and glory of the Holy One in nature and throughout creation can lead you into deep meditation - there are many ways of contemplation that can bring about deep meditation.

Understand, to reach and realize complete oneness you must have divine passion, an unquenchable hunger and thirst for ‘righteousness,’ for an ever greater nearness, oneness with the Supernal One - Eheieh, El Elyon. Having divine passion, passionate faith and love, so there will be a passionate drive, impulse, to pray and pray and pray - to contemplate and meditate deep, and to commune with the Holy One, in the Holy One. Though, indeed, at the very outset there may be a need for significant effort to learn to meditate and to enter into deep meditation, for true mystics there is a natural inclination, impulse, to pray and meditate, a deep and abiding inner drive to acquire knowledge of God and experience nearness, oneness, with the Supreme.

There are many ways of contemplation, many ways of meditation. It you draw near and allow allow your guide, your tzaddik, to take you by the hand they can help you understand the best ways for you, those that will bring about the tikkune, the healing and realization of your soul, and bring you swiftly into reaching, realizing, nearness, oneness with the Holy One.

Understand, though, in the Straight Path the essence of meditation is very simple, as taught in the way of Primordial Meditation; it is just being with God, in God, aware of the innate oneness of your soul and all things with God, the True Light.

As an example of a simple, essential meditation good for all initiates, consider this: Sitting or standing bring up the faith, awareness, of the Holy One and innate oneness, the awareness of God within you and God surrounding you on all sides. Then hold the thought of a brilliant light, like a great condensed star, about six inches above your head; holding that thought, envision it, and envision light beaming down into you, intending to receive that holy light and be filled with that holy light. Think of yourself, and see yourself, as light - in a body of light, surrounded on all sides by light, as though you are in a vast immeasurable ocean of light, inseparable from it. Abide in the awareness of oneness in this way as long as you can, and when your meditation is complete let all pass into no-thingness, including you. When you arise again from this go your way, walking in the Living Presence of the Lord as an emanation of that Divine Presence, and do what is to be done in life remembering God within and all around you everywhere you go, in all that you do - seeing with God, hearing God, feeling with God, smelling, tasting and touching with God, being in God and God being in you. This is a wonderful and powerful way of mystical prayer and meditation. Try it and see! Anyone who wishes to try it has my blessing, and I pray that anyone who take this up may remember and realize the Human One of Light in them - the Messiah! Amen.

My love to you, shalom!

Knowledge of Ha-Shem: The Name

There is something to be said of Ha-Shem, The Name (Yahweh), and the various Holy Names of the Infinite One in the way of the Straight Path; to have true knowledge of The Name is to have knowledge of the Holy One, for the Holy One and The Name are inseparable, “He and His Name are One.” Understand, the Explicit Name, Yahweh, is The Name of the Holy One, and there is no other Name that is like this Holy Name; all other Names of the Holy One emanate from this Great Name and their spiritual powers are contained within it, and so also the spiritual powers of all cognomens, ‘nicknames.’ As is known, The Name encompasses all of the Olamot-Universes and all of the Sefirot-Attributes. The tip of the Yod corresponds with Adam Kadmon and Keter, and with the Holy Names of Eheieh, Elyon, El Elyon, the body of the Yod corresponds with Atzilut and Hokmah, and with the Holy Name of Yah, the first He corresponds with Beriyah and Binah, and with the Holy Name of Yahweh pronounced as Elohim, the Vau corresponds with Yetzirah and the Six, and with the Holy Names El, Elohim, Yahweh, Yeshua, Elohi, Eloah, Elohenu, Yahweh Tzavaot, Elohim Tzavaot, Shaddai, El Shaddai, Shaddai El Hai, and the final He corresponds with Adon, Adonai, Adonai Ha-Melekh, Adonai Ha-Eretz. All of this is in The Name, Yahweh, and the Holy One is inseparable from The Name; contemplate this well and understand the great power of the Infinite and Eternal One in The Name, and the supernal and spiritual power that is in you when you fill your mind and heart with The Name, and that is upon your very tongue if and when you speak and intone The Name.

Understand, the revelation of The Name, and the various Names of God and cognomens, is a priceless gift and blessing from the heaven and the Holy One, a great empowerment for the reaching, realization, of nearness and oneness; know that to utter or intone a Name of God in faith and love, with full concentration (kavvanah) and cleaving (devekut) is to be one with that Holy Name - that Divine Attribute or Divine Action, and to be one with the corresponding presence and power of the Holy One. Through knowledge of The Name, and the various Names of God and cognomens, you can draw near, returning to be One, and if you fill your heart and mind with a Name of God, and you utter or intone that Holy Name in prayer or meditation, you will be one with that Holy Name in that very instant, and that presence and power of the Supernal One will flow with, in and through you, and may even become manifest as you.

You have been taught The Name and know The Name, and you have been taught the various Names of God and cognomens, but you must seek knowledge of The Name through prayer, through contemplation and meditation, seeking a revelation of The Name through heaven and the Holy One, for knowledge of The Name, just as knowledge of the Holy One, comes from heaven and the Holy One; such secret mysteries are revealed by the Holy Shekinah, the Holy Spirit.

As is known, the Names are the Sefirot of Atzilut - essences, supernal powers, of the Sefirot, and as such, all of the correspondences of a Sefirah are spiritual powers of the Name attributed to it. Thus, seeking knowledge of a Name of God you can begin with the study and contemplation of the array of correspondences of that Sefirah, that Divine Attribute, or Divine Action. Acquiring this knowledge you may also contemplate the meaning of each Name and contemplate the letters that compose the Name, and you may contemplate various relationships of that Holy Name with other Names. Then you can prayer for greater revelations of The Name and the Names of the Holy One, and you may meditate upon The Name and various Names directly, envisioning them and merging with them in deep meditation. In this way you must seek knowledge of Ha-Shem through direct revelation, the most intimate knowledge of Ha-Shem, and the greater your knowledge and understanding of The Name the greater your empowerment to invoke and call upon The Name.

There are many different ways that knowers of God meditate upon The Name and permutations of The Name and call upon The Name, and so it is with all of the Names of God, including the 144 Names of God, the 72 Gevurot and 72 Hasidim. Here we may share a simple way that is good for anyone who wishes to meditate upon The Name.

Taking up the meditation of yourself as light in an endless ocean of light, at one with the radiance of the Infinite One, envision the letters of the Name of God surrounding you like great mountains - literally envisioning them the size of vast towering mountains, envisioning them as brilliant colored lights in the midst of the great radiance of light. As an example, meditating upon The Name - Yahweh, you can envision the letters according to the elemental color corresponding with the Olam-Universe to which each letter it attributed: Yod, ruby red light, He, sapphire blue light, Vau, golden topaz light, and final He, emerald green light. Alternatively all letters of a Name could be seen with an outline of electric blue radiance, or something like flaming fire, or they could be seen as dark radiance, as though “black fire” upon “white fire.” However the Name being meditated is envisioned surrounding you, abide in oneness with the radiance of the Infinite One and with that Holy Name; in this way you may experience insights and illuminations of secret mysteries of the Names of God, knowledge that only the Holy Spirit reveals.

Understanding the great holiness and power of The Name, though, know that to meditate upon The Name and call upon The Name you must clean yourself and change yourself, cultivating the qualities of God and generating merit through kindness, mercy, good works. Remember the Third Commandment and never go against it, but always have holy awe and reverence and love, and have a clear and conscious intention when you invoke The Name, and invoke in oneness, not twoness, free from the delusion of lack, the illusion of separation.

In closing we can share an open secret, one that we can discuss in greater length elsewhere. The words Ratzon (will, desire) and HA-Shem both equal 346, as such they are one and the same spiritual force. Ratzon, the will of the Holy One, Ha-Shem, The Name, the knowledge and manifestation of Ratzon - when a soul has knowledge of The Name, so they will have knowledge of Ratzon Elyon, the will of the Supreme.

When you call upon The Name, seeing, hearing and feeling with God, make your will the will of the God, and the will of God - the full force of that will, shall become your own will, the force of your being. Seeking knowledge of Ha-Shem and seeking to call upon Ha-Shem, contemplate this well, and understand!

I pray that you are blessed to acquire full knowledge of Ha-Shem, and more so, that you might realize the innate unity of your soul, your being, with Ha-Shem! Amen.

Yahweh Shalom!

Invocation: Remembrance of God Most High

Understanding the precious and priceless gift of the many Most Beautiful Names of God, the Absolute Light, and acquiring knowledge of the Holy Names through contemplation, and calling upon them in prayer and meditation, understand that at the very heart of the Straight Path, the One Way, is invocation, remembrance, of God Most High at all times. As I have shared with you, deep meditation is essential, and there is a need to pray and pray and pray, but joined with this there needs to be continual invocation, remembrance of God. It is, in truth, not through your labor in prayer and meditation, and various devotions and good works that your soul is drawn in ascent through the various grade or stations and brought into nearness and oneness with God, the True Light; no, indeed, it is through God and God alone, through the Holy Spirit, through the abundant mercy and grace of God Most High. Therefore the mystic and the gnostic in the straight path seeks to remember and invoke the Holy One continuously without cessation, calling upon Ha-Shem in the remembrance of oneness, remembering the Divine Presence within them and surrounding them on all sides, and so awake, remembering, they live and move and have their being in the One God, cleaving to God, the True Light.

There is invocation with the tongue and there is invocation with the heart, and at those times that invocation, remembrance, with the tongue is not appropriate or possible, with your heart invoke, with your heart remember and keep your remembrance in your heart. At the outset of any movement in life, any endeavor, any activity, invoke, remember God, and invite and welcome the Divine Presence, the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, and likewise in the midst, invoke, remember God, and at the conclusion invoke, remember God, and give praise and thanks to God. Invoking, walk with the Lord and in the Lord in all that you do, and let all that you do be an offering to God Most High.

Understand, if you know how to ‘read’ them the ‘signs’ of God are all around you, something of God, the Names of God, are in all things and in all that happens, throughout creation and the natural world; everything reveals, unveils, something of the One God and the Names of God. Through invocation, remembrance of God, you will be able to ‘read the signs’ and witness the unveiling of God outwardly and in yourself; joined with this you will experience the self-disclosure of God inwardly, in your heart, and may come to know things in their inwardness, as they are in God, the Absolute Light.

Invocation, joined with prayer and meditation, is the key to the experience of the revelations of God Most High to you, and so key to the knowledge of God and the realization of oneness with God. Invoke often!

There are many invocations taught in the tradition, very simple invocations as well as more elaborate invocations. It is a delightful play in the Divine Presence, and invoking, remembering, who is invoking, who is remembering? The very inclination, the very action, is something of the Spirit of God in you. Understand this as you invoke!

Invocations can be very simple. “Praise God” or “Hallelu Yah” are simple invocations, so also the Shema Israel. The utterance of a single Name of God with kavvanah and devekut, such as Adonai, Shaddai, Yahweh, and so on, can be a very good invocation. A very common simple invocation among Christians in the Straight Path is Yahweh, Yeshua, ‘the Eternal One, the Eternal One delivers.’ Then, of course, there is the Blessed Name, Yeshua Messiah, remembering the Lordship God Most High has given to the Messiah.

Then there are longer, more elaborate invocations, such as the ‘revealed invocation of the sacred circle’: El and Elohim, Yah and Yahweh, Yah-El and Yahweh Elohim Shaddai, with El Elyon at the outset and Adonai intoned at the conclusion. Likewise there is the invocation of the Holy Names of each Pillar of the Tree of Life, and also invocation of the Holy Names of the entire Tree of Life, and so on.

Invocation is not difficult, you must just remember to invoke, remember God with you and cleave to God.

When you pray and meditate, and invoke, understand that invoking God, the heavens also respond to your invocation, along with the Divine Presence, or Shekinah, Holy Spirit, so also the good company of heaven will be with you, the angels, and as you walk with God and in God in this way the angels will walk with you.

Aware of this, pray and pray and pray, and meditate deep, and invoke often, invoke, remember, God without cessation; let your body become as the body of God, your heart as the heart of God, your mind as the mind of God - your soul as the soul of God. Praise God!

May you abide in the remembrance of God this day! Amen.

Shalom Aleichem!
