AYIN-BET (The 72 Names of God) ~Reflections #67. ALEPH YUD AYIN, Guardian Angel, Itaiel, “God Who Consoles with Wisdom”
Great Expectations ~ Transformation to the Sublime
By meditating on this Name, you gain control over the power of time in your life. Instead of constantly demanding more of tomorrow, you appreciate what you have —and what you are—right now. Falsehoods and self-seeking expectations are cast out!
~Reflections from “KABBALAH: A SACRED SCIENCE FOR THE FUTURE” @ HuffPost _Re: “Navigating the Universe” by Rabbi Adam Jacobs (2011)
The only time the average scientist will turn to the Bible is when he thinks he can “prove” it wrong on grounds of empirical evidence, never realizing that the code contained within the Bible is every bit as empirical as any experiment performed in his laboratory. Yet if these same scientists took the effort to investigate the true, internal meanings of the biblical predictions, they might be in for a pleasant surprise. In addition to gaining a new perspective on the Bible, they might very well come to an understanding of Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, which today so confuses them.
Kabbalah holds out the promise of a real science of the future. Valid futurology is indeed possible, this despite the fact that the future appears more complex and unpredictable with every passing moment. As astronomers will testify, there is very little if any indeterminacy in the movements of our celestial neighbors. Astronomy, calendars, and almanacs all rely on what happened in the past to predict the future. These astronomical calculators enjoy wide respect, the simple reason being that, unlike the predictions of physicists, economists, weather forecasters, and allopathic physicians, the predictions derived from the celestial movements very often achieve accuracy.
When Einstein revealed his theories of special and general relativity, Newtonian scientists had no choice but to reexamine old familiar, and cherished concepts of space and time. Before Einstein’s day, time was regarded as a continuous flow, like a river stretching back into the past and ahead into the future. Einstein proved that time is not absolute. Time depends on space and space depends on time. The two cannot be separated. One cannot be considered without also considering the other.
The famous “twins paradox” is perhaps the most familiar example of this phenomenon. One twin takes a faster-than-light rocket ship into space, while the stay-at-home twin waits for his brother to return some years later. When the space-faring brother returns, he finds his earth-bound brother has aged a great deal, while he has not.
A spaceship traveling at near light speed would enable such human clocks as heartbeat, brainwaves, and blood flow, to slow down during the journey. Time adjusts to accommodate its special frame of reference. As bizarre as this may sound, it is true.
In Genesis we find people who lived many hundreds of years: Adam lived 930 years, Methuselah 969. Then, inexplicably, the average lifespan diminished to a low of only 47 years. Now the average lifespan is becoming progressively longer. Could it be that certain ages and civilizations are more conducive than others to achieving non-ordinary states of consciousness?
The dimensions of spacial consciousness as demonstrated by the twins’ paradox are, of course, vastly different from those with which we normally deal on the physical level. Yet this bizarre anomaly pervades every aspect of our daily lives.
We can see how time varies according to how we perceive it. With this behind us, we may now begin to understand how the space-time phenomenon makes possible prophecy and prediction. By knowing the internal space in which a person exists is sufficient to predict that person’s potential behavior. The key to prediction is the ability to transcend the bounds of rational consciousness so that we may enter the universal state of mind in which past, present and future exist on the same multidimensional plane.
Einstein’s Theory of Relativity destroyed the idea of universal time, and of an absolute past, present, and future. His imagination led us to believe that in some sense the future already exists. Einstein never did fully explain why universal time no longer exists. After all, to understand the why of things was not then and unfortunately still is not within the province of science.
Uncertainty belongs to the world of physics. In the realm of metaphysics, reality is seen unwinding along a precise, predetermined route that must lead to an unalterable final state. The kabbalist understands that time depends upon a space reference, and there are infinite numbers of space-time references. Indeed, there are as many of them as there are inhabitants of planet Earth.
Our new interpretation of space-time sheds light on the question previously raised as to why people lived long lives closer to the time of the biblical Adam, and why the average lifespan decreased to a low point only to rise again. Adam and those immediately following him lived in a time of high spiritual consciousness. The further removed one is from the rigid framework of clock-time consciousness, the longer one’s life is likely to be.
As we approach the Age of Aquarius, our space-time consciousness is being elevated. Time is slowing down for us and we shall experience a marked increase in the human lifespan. However, this does not necessarily mean we will all move up to a higher frequency of consciousness. What will take place, however, is a general recognition that past, present, and future are no longer fragmented, but are really one and the same.
The biblical parable concerning the Tower of Babel illustrates that although they lived in this upper frame of space-time reaping all the benefits of their state of being, that civilization did not necessarily achieve a spiritual awareness of Desire to Receive for the Sake of Sharing. However, because fragmented time hardly existed, their grasp of the universe was that of a highly evolved civilization.
Unlike the ancient civilization of Babel, our present civilization is dominated by the cosmic influence of the Age of Aquarius, the essence of which is Desire to Receive for the Sake of Sharing. It is not by chance that the knowledge of Kabbalah is, with each day, becoming more widespread and readily available.
As stated in Jeremiah 30:33: “And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord.’ Rather everyone shall know Me, from the smallest to the highest.”
Already we are beginning to witness a similarly advanced transition, as did the ancient civilization of Babel. In addition, we are about to experience a spiritual revival, the likes of which did not exist at the time of Babel. No longer is it necessary to accrue vast amounts of knowledge before delving into life’s mysteries. In the Age of Aquarius, the [purest] ancient wisdom will be the domain of all.
