Ketoret Samim And Ketoret Zarah


~ The difference between men and women. ~

On it Aaron shall burn aromatic incense of sweet spices ... Shemot 30:7
קְטֹרֶת סַמִּים

(Aaron) shall not offer strange incense on it ... Shemot 30:9
קְטֹרֶת זָרָה

The difference between the two incenses is this:

Ketoret Samim (aromatic incense of sweet spices). The word used for 'aromatic sweet spices' is סמים, from the two-letter gate סם. From this gate come the shorashim (roots):

סמך - support, be close, clinging, laying hands on (as in ordination)
סמל - forming, set form (solidify, in opposition to disintegrate form)
סמם - concentrate substance (to bring into materiality), potent spice
סמן - designate, marking (as in simanim meelta, significant omens)

Ketoret Zarah (strange incense). The word used for 'strange' is זרה, from the two-letter gate זר. From this gate come the shorashim (roots):

זרב - flow (loosen form, as opposed to solidify), combine/separate
זרה - scatter, winnowing out, generating wind, set apart
זרח - east (direction and elemental), open seed, radiate light
זרע - arm or limb that sets in motion

Considering the gates which distinguish the two incenses, we can understand that ketoret samim function to support steams of power that incarnate or materialize existence, while ketoret zarah functions to disintegrate, move and recombine those streams of power.

Thus, upon the altar of the tabernacle, Aaron may not offer incense designed to evoke the powers of disintegration, dematerialization, scattering or winnowing. In Torah, Aaron as the high priest of the Divine Masculine is to function as an agent of pure chesed (lovingkindness) to support integration, materialization and bringing together.

The functions of disintegration, loosening, winnowing and recombining rightfully belong to high priestess of the Black Goddess. Only the high priestess of the Divine Feminine is authorized to function as an agent of pure gevurah (strength), and to offer ketoret zarah upon the altar of the tabernacle.

Understanding Shatnez Versus Completeness


Thus, the complete blessing of all I experience and collect through you ... Shemot 25:9
כְּ כֹל, אֲשֶׁר אֲנִי מַרְאֶה אוֹתְ ךָ, אֵת תַּבְנִית הַמִּשְׁכָּן

May a vow never become a prison for your soul. Wherever your path may lead, may you be free to go.

Shatnez: A Prison for your Soul

That which is unmixable (a weave of error) comes from the shoresh (root) כלא. From this shoresh is derived the hebrew word for prison (כלוא), as in the phrase "house of bondage" (בית הכלוא). The word for unmixable species (כלאים), and the word for stopping or restraining (כלאם) like in the phrase "shut them in", are also derived from this shoresh.

Uniquely Complexly Complete: The Blessing of All

That which is uniquely and complexly complete comes from the shoresh כלל. From this shoresh are derived words pertaining to the idea of completeness by including everything. For example, derived from this shoresh are sustaining completely (וכלכלתי), Temple offering משפטיך ותורתך completely consumed (וכלכל), and the blessing of all (את-כל-אשר).

To experience the blessing of all, one must be faithful to and evolve one's Unique Divine Spark. To assimilate the blessing of all into one's explicit reality, one must truly grasp and comprehend the difference between shatnez (that which is unmixable) and unique complex completeness (that which is perfectly mixable). The former builds a prison for your soul. The latter delivers true blessing.

The difference between the two shorashim - כלא and כלל - is the final letter. The shoresh of prison ends in the letter alef (א a letter of singularity with a value of 1), while the shoresh of the blessing of all ends in the letter lamed (ל a letter of multiplicity with a value of 30).

Alef represents the ultimate manifestation of one's inner messianic Unique Divine Spark. Thus, one's own inner Spark of Mashiach restrains and stops those who would build a prison for souls.

Lamed represents learning and teaching. Thus, one's ability to learn and to communicate effectively that which was learned to another is a mechanism through which the blessing of all is received, transmitted and bestowed.

In Agreement With These Perfect-Words


Witchblood, Dam HaBrit (Blood of the Covenant)

And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said: 'Behold the blood of the covenant, which the Divine hath made with you in agreement with these perfect-words ... Shemot 24:8

וַיִּקַּח מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הַדָּם, וַיִּזְרֹק עַל-הָעָם; וַיֹּאמֶר, הִנֵּה דַם-הַבְּרִית אֲשֶׁר כָּרַת יְהוָה עִמָּכֶם, עַל כָּל-הַדְּבָרִים, הָאֵלֶּה

in agreement with these perfect-words ... Temple Species

Early this shabbat morning before sunrise, I came awake. As I was waking, I saw the sounds of two words as they burst into my consciousness - namely:

zendel (זן-דיל pronounced zen-dil)
gezereig (גזר-הגג pronounced gezer-hegg)

I got up and wrote the words down before going back to sleep. This morning, the message in the magic words comes alive.

זן - species, strain, variety, type
דיל - deal, agreement, something for something, an equal exchange, a substitution

גזר - divide into pieces, cutting, decreeing, Temple elevation, removing
הגג - maximum, top (reward and punishment)

Taken together, the two words come together in my mind to mean 'species which mediates and distributes maximum punishment or reward'. In other words, this 'type of Temple consciousness' mediates to support, modify or rescind Divine decree.

This 'type' of awareness exists in me.
