On Rosh Hashanah

In the mapping of the Holidays and the Sefirot, Rosh Hashanah‘s two days correspond to Chochmah and Binah.  The following is a translation of Reb Zalman’s text for Rosh Hashanah from Yishmiru Daat.  You will find the Hebrew at the end of this post.  Blessings to you.  Gabbai Seth Fishman, BLOG Editor

And on Day One of Rosh Hashanah, God makes possible for us an opportunity to tap into energies of “Beginning” and Chochmah / Flash of insight so one can start afresh.  And on Day Two, the opportunity to tap into energies of fifty gates of Binah / practical plans for the above flash and Teshuvah / realignment with God, with the Supernal Mother Who is the source of loving-kindness, and the lady of Forgiveness

And so I can say, “I believe with perfect faith, that Hashem Yitbarach, by Chochmah / flash of insight, (Yerushalmi Sanhedrin 51), makes possible for us to access a loophole under the throne of glory – which is Binah – when the Shofar sound is heard, (cf Zohar II 46), the Supernal Jubilee,

[The Supernal Jubilee is the traditional shorthand for “Beginning a Messianic Age. ” But if this image doesn’t work for you, or if you hold that this image doesn’t work for us generally, please realign the language with your way of expressing the vision of what you feel might work better for world redemption.  Gabbai Seth.]

and through the personal Rosh Hashanah work, we can begin anew to crown God as King, to be one with Hir, to see Hir as One, and to tell others of our encounter with Hir majesty until such time in which it will happen that all those with breath in nostrils will say ‘YHVH Elokai Yisrael Melech‘ (Psalm 103:19) and ‘Malchuso Bakol Mashalah.  And this is faith in Hashem as Father and Mother, bringing together the vision and the plan.”

    May all the blessings you have brought to my attention here on the tree of life shine brightly and illuminate more truth to you, filling your life with light and clear vision. Thank you for sharing this light with us. A people without vision can see no hope.
    I don’t know about you, but so often I’ll go over the next hill looking for the answer that is staring me in the face. I didn’t even have a clue until I got unstuck from the dogma that still has the church blind and in fear. Since the Constantien fraud that left people in the dark and took away what light and power or truth.
    Through Qabbalah anyone who loves the truth and is teachable can map an education of who we are (Genesis 1:26-27) and what we as creators can do. This occult teaching, hidden in plain view, is proof of my personal observation that fear kept me blind. I did not question authority. So I fed on the lies and became a product of dogmatic, fear-based religion. As the prophet said I was calling good, evil and evil, good. And passionately teaching others the same foolish lies. Forgive me.
    Now I live with the knowledge that I am living proof of the analogy that you can put ink into water – but try to get it out. Or better put, you can start a rumor, but try to stop it?
    Thank you for taking the time to share with me this wealth of knowledge. I could write a book on “If I only knew then what I know now…”
    I have heard people preach about the wisdom of Solomon and with the same bad breath warn ignorant people about things that were practical applications of that same wisdom. How stupid can you be and still breathe? I should know, I was one.
    Thank you for not giving up on people like me who in ignorance and arrogance ran from the truth of the tree of life.
    I need all the help I can get from people like you. Bless You.

    Kindest regards,
    David Clark
