I love opinionated non-PC people. This blog is to vent my opinions on life, the universe and everything. Which is 42 which in gematria is "My Heart" (LBY) according to Rabbi Abulafia. The Divine Heart is the centre of everything.

Today I gave a talk at the Casa de Luisa Piccarreta on the concept of spiritual and mystical littleness or smallness in the teachings of Mystical Judaism, Rebbe Nachman and Luisa Piccarreta. After the talk our priest Father Teddy asked me if Our Lady or Luisa was the mystical Moon. I answered that in mysticism symbols can have many meanings not just one and that the Moon was also a symbol of Our Lady. However thinking about it later I came to a clearer understanding in my own mind.
The Sun who is the generator of light and heat is a mystical symbol of the Infinite Light and Divine Will who manifests as the Divine Word [the face over the Deep]. The created visible light of the Sun alludes to Our Lady[the Face over the Waters/ Well of Miriam] and the created hidden heat of the Sun alludes to the Hidden Tzadik Joseph [the Face over the Rakia of the Heavens]. The light of the Sun that touches and illuminates the Moon represents Our Lady in Eternity. Luisa is the moon[the Face over the Earth/ Mouth of the Well of Miriam] that receives the divine Light and Will through Our Lady and St Joseph. The light of the Moon that radiates to the earth is the light of Our Lady and Luisa united in divine Will. The earth represents the Divine Son's created humanity that receives the light of the created Imma and the warmth of the created Abba. He also in some mystical manner recieves the light of Luisa mediated through Our Lady and St Joseph. Thus Jesus and Joseph can be symbolised by the Sun and Our Lady and Luisa can be symbolised by the Moon. These are the four Chayot of Heaven,the Four Cherubim and the four Minds of the Temple who are the four Faces and four Lights of Genesis One.
