|Week of October 26, 2008 Shabbat Noach Mar Cheshvan 3, 5769|
This weeks portion is Noach. It is the story of the cleansing of the world through water. It is the story of the continuity of our world and it is the story of the continuing mistakes of mankind called the Tower of Babel.
There are 153 verses in the portion of Noach. One memonic is Betzalel (in the shadow of God). He was the one given Wisdom, Understanding, and Knowledge plus all manner of workmanship. Using this he was the one who built the Mishkan in the desert. What is the connection between building the Mishkan and building the Teivah - the ark? Perhaps we can discover that as we continue to learn about Noach.
The other memonic is three words Avi YaSuCaH Lot. This is spelled Aleph Bet Yood (my father) Yood Sameck Caf Hay (which is an active cover or screening - similar to a Sukkah) Lamed Vav Tet (a cover or veil). We can easily understand this connection because the Tevah or ark is a cover of protection which comes from God.
153 is the sum of 140 plus 13. 13 is the number of unity (Echad = one has a Gematria of 13). 140 is 14 times 10. 14 is the Gematria of the word for hand Yad. It represents manifestation - as we do things with our hands. Therefore 153 is the manifestation of unity.
The Kabbalists teach us the essence of the Portion of Noach is the energy of Certainty. Certainty is not faith or belief (Emunah in Hebrew). Please throw out of your mind the concept of faith that is the essence of the Christian Faith. This kind of Emunah is not a Jewish concept.
Inherent in the concept of Belief is an element of doubt. Certainty removes all doubt. God spoke to Noach and said "Enter the Ark". Noach did not do so until the waters of the flood forced him to do so. Our sages teach that this indicates that Noach did not have certainty only faith. He entered the Ark when his faith turned to certainty based on circumstances.
The Zohar teaches us that the Zohar is our ark of protection in this world. What do we need protection from. "The birthpangs of Machiach - or our own douts or both and much more.
How does one attain the energy of certainty. One just decides to be certain and based on the power of one's mind - one controls the physical world. Yes i know it is very difficult to tell the cancer begone and have it go away. Yet i scan/read the Zohar every day and i have been able to make that happen in my life. I am not special - i have just been taught the technology of the Hebrew Letters, the knowledge of the spiritual as well as the natural laws, and the Kabbalistic tools to activate mind over matter.
This is something that can not be proven to you by someone else. You have to prove it to yourself.
So try this in your life. Put a sign up on your mirror. On the sign put the Hebrew Letters Vav Dalet Aleph Yood. This spells the Aramaic word Vadai which means certainty. Look at this word everyday - meditate on this word every day - many times every day. After some time, evaluate yourself - is your certainty about the law of mind over matter stronger now than when you started? Only you will be able to evaluate this for yourself.
Another tool that Kabbalah provides is the 72 Names of God. There is one Name in particular - Ayin Resh Yood - that connects us to the energy of Certainty. Just like Vadai above - use this name to remove your doubts and connect to certainty which is the tool to activate mind over matter. One reason for the connection between Ayin Resh Yood and certainty is the Gematria which is 280. 280 is the Gematria of the 5 final letters called Mantzepach (Mem Nun Tzadi Pey Caf). The final letters represent the energy of the final days which indicate the manifestation of Mashiach. One can only connect to thier personal Mashiach when one connects to the energy of certainty.
Remember the name Noach (Chet Nun) means comfort. The source of comfort is certainty. What makes someone comfortable - the technology of the western world like air conditioning - a chair that reclines - our favorite TV program or IPOD. OR is it our connection to the spiritual frame through learning that the discomfort we feel is a prelude to a greater pleasure.
Chet Nun (Noach) in reverse spells Chen which means grace. Grace actuallys connects us to the Chochmat Nestar (hidden wisdom). This is the actual source of our comfort the certainty that HaShem will provide for all our Needs. That HaShem has given us the Ark we need to enjoy the process called the birthpangs of Maschiach - the Zohar.
We live in times in which that many people are afraid. They are afraid for their financial futures, their health, who is going to be elected, will they continue to have jobs, will the world melt down like it did during the great depression, and many other fears. While it goes against Western teachings and logic, reading and scanning the Zohar is the Ark of protection provided by God to go through this period and put these fears into their place - which is to disappear from our perspective.
There is one unusual aspect potentially written into the scroll. There are very few scrolls that have this aspect. The last word in the Portion of Noach is Charan - the place where Avraham's father dies. The final Nun in this letter can be written backwards or in some discussions upside down. This is to point out to us that this event is not in chronological order. In fact Avraham left Charan before his father died. In order not to give people the opportunity to say that Avraham did not honor his father by staying in Charan. This section is out of order; this is noted by the backwards or upside down Nun. In the Torah of the Mashiach it will be placed in its proper location.
The Zohar explains that the name of something is actually a form of Prophecy. The Shoresh of the Name Char (Chet Resh) means to perforate, to be dry, or to burn. The Nun represents the number 50 which represents the 50 Gates of Understanding. The essence of the place called Charan is to burn the 50 Gates of Understanding.
Where is Charan in our world today? It is the country known as Iraq. The above is an interesting aspect of our War in Iraq.
