What’s the deal with Mr. Bissell?
Hey guys I played D&D as a kid and Mr. Bissell is a true Bard.
And a good teacher. And fun.
So far I am up to the letter Tet in my studies.
I went through the Ten Matters first. but the Aleph bet is So interesting.
Let’s talk first about why this is clicking for me. Back in 2006 is when I started getting “the feeling” I remember telling someone at my church that things would be changing soon. But how did I know where that would go? My kid was 5 years old and I had an idea about what direction we would go and we never went that way.
What did end up happening is the church family for me – fell apart. I spent almost all my time at the church teaching the littles – which was great fun. But I couldn’t follow the lesson plans that the church provided. I went to the local elementary schools and taught Good News Club – in the very beginning I was like – Oh yeah this is so me! But after a few years I Could Not Do It – any more.
There was just something that wasn’t adding up. I could not figure out what it was.
I was handing these little kids Lollipops and promises that they could get into heaven for FREE…
and I am a liar.
and I am ashamed of it.
I didn’t know – they told me and I believed it and they said – tell those kids and I did… and I should not have done that. Good News Club makes people feel good about how many little hearts they helped write in the book of life. I can only hope those kids read the book themselves and forgive me for acting in good faith and ignorance.
So many years ago I started reading the Sefer Yetzirah -Book of Creation
People said you won’t get it it is too hard to understand – I didn’t read the whole thing I just read the beginning – a very fine place to start! ♫ ♪♪
You can follow the link it opens in a new window and see what it says – the 32 paths through the heart of the creator are the Ten attributes of the creator – the beauty, the mercy, the justice, the majesty, the wisdom, the knowledge, etc and between the attributes are the paths of the 22 letters. But that book quickly get occulty – for lack of a better word and goes on to twist obediance to Yahovah to being a mini god and making golems by repeating the sacred words. Such as : Abracadabra – that is a “magical word” alà wikipedia (papaphrased) – Avra ka Davra (A-bara –to make exist -ka – like -dabra – the spoken word) means Make what has been said! (in hebrew!) Abra ka Dabra is a magical formula that was always used by the Alchemists and Kabbalists to invoke and command the spirits of different orders after subduing them.
Also used in Harry Potter as the Killing Curse, Avada Kedavra…unforgiveable. From the Potter Wiki: During an audience interview at the Rowling said: “Does anyone know where avada kedavra came from? It is an ancient spell in Aramaic, and it is the original of abracadabra which means ‘let the thing be destroyed.’ (ali’s note – close lady but not quite!) Originally, it was used to cure illness and the ‘thing’ was the illness, but I decided to make it the ‘thing’ as in the person standing in front of me. I take a lot of liberties with things like that. I twist them round and make them mine.” Rowling’s use of this name may have been influenced by the Latin “cadaver”.
– not so sure that is a good thing to do but it makes for an interesting story…
So on one hand I cannot get into the Sefer Yitzirah – because it is twisted to make people into gods.
But I can get into the idea that words are powerful and Words were used by Yahovah to make it so. And the Canooks – they had the same idea of the hebrew language being a key to itself – And much of what they say makes sense – but their translation has no heart in it. It is like describing the idea of life as a series of chemical reactions and receptors.
So when I found Mr. Bissells videos on line I thought – I have seen this guy around. I have had hints of what he is saying the shadows of my studies but the time wasn’t right I guess. Now the time is right and I have not learned anything like I have learned since Sukkoth of this year. Stuff is pouring in! Connections are being made! All those parables that I thought were cute or cool before – no way… they are deep, phenomenal, beyond the beyond. chilling in some cases…no kidding!
here is a group of little girls singing the Aleph bet song – at their 2011 Sukkoth camp:
The words go like this:
And it isn’t just like – hey lets translate some words into the NEW version! It is much more like hey lets kick the lies that were handed down to us and the lies that we may have been guilty of handing down to others and get this right!
So this week – Yah willing I will try to post a review of the letter lesson for the day – I know they are 2 hours each and it is a huge time commitment. But well worth the investment I think.
