The laws of nature are the expressions of ELOHIM. ELOHIM is the force and power underlying the physical universe.
In its basic tense, a Hebrew verb is passive, however when the prefix letter Yod is added to a passive verb base, it transforms the verb from the passive tense into the active tense.
We thus have two parallel dimensional planes; one physical in Kabbalah, Asiyah , operating under known natural laws and another in Kabbalah, Yetzirah , not physical, operating under less known and entirely different conditions.
The two universes operate parallel to one another and are supposed to operate and function in harmony with each other. The YHVH universe Yetzirah is the source and sustenance of the ELOHIM universe Asiyah.
Our physical universe Asiyah emanates out of the higher dimensional plane Yetzirah and is completely sustained by it. When the order of creation is in proper balance, the YHVH universe flows naturally into the ELOHIM universe.
In this relationship the physical universe materializes abundance in all its forms and everything is in blossom, harmony, balance and peace. However, the flow of the upper universe into the lower universe can be hindered.
Natural law dictates that channels can be either opened or closed or partially restricted. At Sinai, an interdimensional vortex was opened enabling YHVH to materialize in this physical universe in a form that could contain it and sustain it.
This form is the Torah. The body of Torah is the mitzvot commandments. When Israel correlates its collective mind to Torah it properly channels YHVH and enables its power and force to materialize in this physical plane and thus into the Name ELOHIM.
This is the purpose of Halakha the Torah way, commonly but limitedly translated as Jewish Law. It could no longer be properly channeled into the ELOHIM physical universe.
Thus, the vessels of channeling and reception were either destroyed or removed. We therefore lost prophecy, Ark and Temple.
We were left in a mental and correlating physical place which we call exile. There can be no redemption from exile until such redemption is properly carried out.
The inner channels must first be restored before the external channels can be restored. For even if the external forms of Ark and Temple were replaced, they would still be nothing but empty hollow shells.
This was the situation regarding the Second Temple in Jerusalem. Without the internal shift of collective national consciousness back to the supernatural reality of the Name YHVH, exile will continue, regardless of external forms.
Internal shifts in the collective national consciousness can be achieved through the focused concerted effort of those in the nation who can steer the collective in the proper mental direction.
Only they can realign focus away from ELOHIM and the natural and restore it to YHVH and the supernatural, thus enabling both to properly realign, unite and flow harmoniously into one another.
This is the true meaning of Teshuva return, commonly understood to be repentance. Now we can begin to understand the meaning of HaShem Hu HaElohim.
This statement is no mere recitation of words; rather it needs to be an actual focus of consciousness that helps realign parallel universes to being parallel universes.
When we recite the words HaShem Hu HaElohim, the sounds themselves need to be joined with intense mental focus. In Hebrew we call this Kavana mental intent.
When we recite the Name ADONAI, we must not focus on that Name but rather on the Name YHVH. ADONAI is the dwelling place, the palace, the Heikhal of YHVH.
YHVH is concealed within ADONAI. Our mental focus is to make sure the two Names are perfectly united and that the YHVH energy is properly channeled through its vessel ADONAI.
Thus, when reciting ADONAI we mentally visualize the Name YHVH and imagine its supernatural life giving energy flowing into the Name ADONAI enlivening it and enabling it to enliven our physical universe.
YHVH is the inner conduit; ADONAI is the outer conduit. Havaya, like the word HaShem is a term used to call the Name YHVH. Adnoot is the term for the Name ADONAI.
Yihud means union. The two Names together thus form a relationship of light and vessel or of soul and body. Again, YHVH is the inner conduit; ADONAI is the outer conduit.
One is the source and strength of the other; one is the vessel and form of the other. The most thorough discography of the tenor is that of Hansfried Sieben, published in the quarterly journal Record Collector Chelmsford, Essex for June His comet-like rise clashed with the rise of the Nazis.
