Living Beyond Forty-nine ©

By Dr. Akiva G. Belk

This study of the Holy Days is dedicated in the loving memory of Jack and Bella Noahson may they rest in peace.

Between Pesach and Shavuos there are seven weeks of seven, 7 x 7 = 49 days. The Torah states, "Seven weeks count to yourself." Deuteronomy 16:9 Kabbalistically speaking, each week as we count the days and weeks we are to focus on a particular area of thought between Pesach and Shavuos as listed below. Each day within the week we are to consider a particular discipline of that week's focus.

In the counting of the omer THERE ARE SEVEN SEFIROS, Kabbalistic spheres which each corresponding to one week of the omer. One can compare sefiros to the Aleph Bais {Hebrew Alphbet}, Gematria words, musical notes etc...

Today we are observing our climb of the past forty-nine days. Tonight when Shavuos is ends what do we do? We enter the realm of fifty. We associate fifty with either the highest spiritual level or the opposite which is the greatest distance from what Hashem requires of us. The choice is ours.

In Gematria the Hebrew letter Nun represents fifty. The Nun is also a final lettter which represents seven hundred. A few weeks ago in the parsha discussion entitled "How to change the world with one action we discussed the number fifty." So in this discussion we will not trace those steps. Instead we will excellerate to the Gematria of the final letter of the Nun.

The Gematria Godal of Nun is 700. The Gematria Mispar Katan on the final letter of Nun is 7. The zeros are dropped. So the Nun is one of five letters that represent three Gematria equivelants. Notice all five:

 Gematria Regil  Gematria Godal Gematria Godal Mispar Katan
 Chof = 20  Chof = 500 Chof = 5
 Mem = 40  Mem = 600 Mem = 6
 Nun = 50  Nun = 700 Nun = 7
 Pey = 80  Pey = 800 Pey = 8
 Tzaddi = 90  Tzaddi = 900 Tzaddi = 9

Now in actuality Hey represents 5, Vav represents 6, Zayin represents 7, Ches represents 8, and Tes represents 9. My intention here is not to question this only demenstraite how 5,6,7,8 and 9 can also represented by another letter other than the normal letter intended to do so. This is important because the Nun represents:

Shavuos, the 50th day

7 the number of days in each week

7 the number of weeks in counting the omer

700 - What does Seven hundred represent?
Notice the spelling of the letter Nun. It is spelled {right to left} Nun Vav Nun. The letter Nun begins with the letteter Nun and ends with the letter Nun. Each Nun is connected to the other Nun by the letter Vav. The letter Vav is known for being a "connecting letter" in Hebrew. Dear ones this is very significant because the Gematria of the letter Nun represents a pattern a cycle.

The Gematria Regil of Nun represents the annual cycle of Shavuos of this hear being connected with the Shavuos of last year or the Shavuos of next year. Notice that conection in its simplist form: Nun Vav Nun or Shavuos connected to Shavuos.

Next when we consider the Gematria Godal Mispar Katan of the Nun the Gematria is NOT 5 + 6 + 5 but rather 7 + 6 + 7. The Gematria Godal Mispar Katan of Nun represents the seven weeks of seven day being connected. Notice the connection Seven weeks {Nun} connected {Vav} by seven days {Nun}.

Now we consider the Gematria Godal Miluy of the letter Nun which equals 756.

756 = Final Nun = 700 Vav = 6 Nun = 50

The Gematria 756 represents the annual cycle that I refered to earler. Shi Noos, meaning "YEAR" is also the Gematria 756.

Shin Noos {YEAR}
756 = Sav 400 Vav 6 Nun 50 Shin 300

So in Shin Noos we see the annual mystical cycle from Shavuos to Shavuos and from Seven days of the the week to seven weeks. We also notice that the number seven divides equally into 756 eighteen times. the Gematria of Chai is represented by the number 18. In other words we see a mystical cycle of life in the Nun as well. That mystical cycle of life is represent by the spiritual signifance of the Nun that being the Neshama, the soul which is eternal!

We also notice that within the Gematria 756 steps or graduation in The word Shee Noo Voos meaning gradation.

Shee Noo Voos {GRADUATION}
756 = Sav 400 Vav 6 Nun 50 Shin 300

As stated in yesterday's discussion, The Mystical Journey from Pesach to Shavuos, "We go through this exersize each year to remind us that our life is simular to counting the omer. Each year we repeat the annual cycle of counting the omer. G-d willing we eventually reach Mal Choos Sheh Bi Mal Choos. In the same way through a cycle of lives we will G-d willing reach Mal Choos Sheh Bi Mal Choos "KINGDOM OF THE SEVENTH KINGDOM!" This is the intention of living beyond forty-nine!!

May Hashem bless us in our mystical journey to eventually reach Mal Choos Sheh Bi Mal Choos.

Good Yom Tov!
