Bahir Verse 101

Journey towards the center in this passage and ignore for the moment the detailed explanations.

Bahir 101. Rabbi Berachiah sat and expounded: What is the Lulav that we discusses? It is the 36 (Lu) given over to 32 (Lav). And how? He replied: There are three Princes, the Axis, the Sphere and the Heart. Each one is twelve, and the three therefore constitute a sum of 36, through which the world is sustained. It is thus written (Proverbs 10:25), "And Righteous is the foundation of the world."

Commentary: We are ascending through an area known as the 'hidden levels.' Here the natural course is to ponder the meanings of the letter Lamed and Vav and try and find out the relationship that exists within the Tree of Life in terms of these three Princes. If we do so then we shall never obtain the true expressions that are alluded to here. It then becomes important to move quickly as these openings are suggested but they are not clear except for eyes accustomed to the light. Learn to move in the direction of your thought setting the way before you as you go. Use the Bahir now as a compass and an instrument to discover the way within. The Bahir cannot by itself get you there. It is up to you see your objective clearly and to uncover the way that is exactly yours to follow. This entire verse gives us course directions. The specifics you can work out for yourself. What is important here is that the place that you are being led into is the mystical promised land and that will be the topic of the next post.
