City of Luz

City of Luz is an inter-dimensional city of higher consciousness that unites all branches of knowledge and fields of experience. Luz is the Biblical site of Jacob’s angelic dream, also known as the House of God and the Gate to Heaven. Luz is an impenetrable city in the ancient land of Israel that can only be entered through a secret cave hidden by a hazelnut (luz) tree. Moreover, we are told that after it was conquered, another city also named Luz was built in another eastern country, a virtual “Shangri-la” where there is no death and only the truth can be spoken. “He built a city and called it Luz; that is its name until this day.” (Judges,1:24). Luz is also the rabbinic code for the mind of Moses, the body of Metatron and the heart of the Messiah. It is the secret of the brain’s mysterious pineal gland, the “seat of the soul.” Within the essence of Luz lies the secret of transformation and resurrection. An actual place that virtually anyone can be shown how and where to...

Mind of Moses

The following icons found in Beyond Kabbalah are explained at length where they are introduced or associated with the subject next to where they appear. Additionally, some of them are inserted here and there simply to remind the reader to interface their significance with the teachings on the page where they appear.Utilizing this method of consciousness multitasking will be most effective on your second and third time through the manual. If you are picking up Beyond Kabbalah for the first time, this graphic glossary can function as a quick overview of some of the thematic threads that run through this workbook. This icon, the 5M’s masthead of Beyond Kabbalah — Mission, Maps, Methods, Models and Mind of Moses, continually reminds you of your final mission — to enter into the secret within the Mind of Moses — the Ascension of God’s Thought and the Flames of Divine Love. Together the 5M’s configure a unique mosaic of Mosaic consciousness. There is however, a “Catch 22”. In order to attain Mosaic consciousness, you must first ascend 5 Steps and then enter...

The Josephic Messiah

Help accelerate the Messianic Era by unravelling the riddle of the Twin Messiahs – the Josephic and Davidic Messiahs according to the secret teachings of the Gaon of Vilna. The Twin Messiahs (Excerpt from The Secret Doctrine of the Gaon of Vilna)          Only over the last few decades the formerly obscure and enigmatic Jewish tradition of the Josephic Messiah—Mashiach ben Joseph—has become known to the public. In the overall picture, however, and certainly with its plethora of ornate details, this funamental teaching continues to remain unknown. At best, Judaism’s secret doctrine of the Josephic Messiah, as elaborated in the Kabbalah, is very confusing, even being subject to misuse and gross distortion. One should be prepared as the explanation presented here of the Messiah has little to do with the Christian and Western cultural understanding. Yet, this phenomenon is precisely so. Hiddenness and unrecognizability are part of the essence of the Josephic Messiah. He is a master of the art of disguise. This is also the Torah’s intention in the verse: “Joseph recognized his brothers, but they did not...

The Messianic Role of Science and Technology

The prophesized imperative of the maps, models and metaphors of the New Sciences in spiritual global evolution and the redemption process. The Prophetic Confluence Between Science & Kabbalah  Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic [miracles].(1)Arthur C. Clarke With the gradual opening of the gates of wisdom above and below the messianic revelation that will begin from the year 1840 will resemble the wisdom of King Solomon in his day. R. Hillel of Shklolv The Door of Models, one of the four entrances into the Mind of Moses, subsumes that a futuristic, higher-dimensional reunion of Torah and science is prophesied, i.e. cosmically mandated and vitally necessary for an imminent global paradigm shift to ensue.  As explained below and throughout Beyond Kabbalah that futuristic, higher-dimensional reunion of Kabbalah with the New Sciences is here now and the tools are readily available. As emphasized throughout this work, the relationship between Torah and science, specifically between Kabbalah and the New Sciences, is crucial. Without securely grasping this prophetic rendezvous it is impossible to go Beyond Kabbalah. The following introduction was first presented above in Part 1 as The Secret...

Sha'ashua formula

Wow love that Sha’ashua formula, makes for great thinking about the mind of G-d.

I am so blessed to have studied so many of your wonderful classes over the years. It all started with Virtual Yeshivah. It makes a big difference knowing the keys to decode. Having a clearer understanding of the dance of Hasadim and Gevurot, Sha’ashua and Leviathan makes a big difference in my comprehension.

The Secret Doctrine of the Gaon of Vilna

I started reading and studying your new book [The Secret Doctrine of the Gaon of Vilna]. Not only is difficult to stop reading it, but honestly I experience the same feeling of awe that comes from reading the works by the Ramchal [R’ Moshe Chayim Luzzato].  Chazak u’Baruch!

City of Luz

Dear Mr Bakst,

I am writing to thank you for a wonderful web site. I am a 53 year old homemaker who recently discovered your teachings. I must admit I strain to understand what I’m reading, however, what I do comprehend is so wonderful!  Your “City of Luz” site brings so much joy and light into my life. I have read Torah and Tanakh at least 5x’s in my life and now am able to understand what I’ve been missing all these years. I suppose it would help if I spoke Hebrew, but since I do not your writings are so very meaningful to me. Though I was born of a Jewish mother I was not raised in a religious home I have always wanted to understand the ways of G-d, and your teachings help me with that. My quest began at 21 years of age and now here I am engrossed in your writing. I look forward to reading everyday again. I want to thank you for your devotion and hard work!

Shalom and May Hashem continue to bless you!

Peter

Joel's Writings

No need to reply—this is just a thank you for your site—(from the “near Antarctic” South Pacific). I have found so much wonderful material in your writings.

Thank you,

Secret Doctrine Class

Hi Rabbi,
I have been reading the text and following the Secret Doctrine class for the past few weeks. I’m really enjoying it. The whole thing seems to click with me. I have started to include the techniques from class into my daily meditation. The tubular model you described yesterday is great. Using it, I can see how to visualize the inversion of the screen back into the pineal projector.

Many thanks. S. P.
