At the premiere of The Moses Code
movie [D180511], someone challenged James Twyman, saying that his ideas surrounding the story of Moses and the name given to him by God, 'I AM THAT, I AM', were incomplete. It wasn't a comma that unlocked the secrets of creation, she protested, but a Yud: the most sacred letter in the Hebrew alphabet. Thus began a quest, which soon became a life-changing adventure, to discover the true meaning of the Sacred Names of God. In The Kabbalah Code
, James examines the secrets of the Kabbalah, the ancient mystical teachings of Judaism, and shows how you, too, can master its potential and knowledge of numerology in a concise and powerful system, to achieve anything you desire through the Law of Attraction. Join James and Phil Gruber in their adventures as they travel to ten of the most sacred sites in Paris, unlocking the secrets found in the many Names of God and revealing lost teachings that may just change the world.240pp, 150mm x 230mm, hardback, 2009
'This is way beyond what you're calling the Moses Code,' Phil remarked. 'I think it's more than you can wrap your head around right now. There are forces at work here that you don't understand.'
'I took notes based on our phone conversations and the e-mails you sent,' I replied, taking out my pad. 'You said that we're dealing with ancient mysteries so powerful that there are those who would like to protect them. Actually, you wrote that these so-called protectors aren't necessarily people, but something more elusive. You also said something about angels protecting certain mysteries because of sacred seals or pacts between them and God, as well as something about demons being somehow locked into patterns they can't escape . . . or don't want to. Is that right? These beings are imprisoned in multidimensional fields that lock them in place, and in some cases, they don't even know they've been captured. Am I getting this right? You also said that it's time for them to be released - that it's time for the pacts the angels made with God to finally be fulfilled.'
'More or less,' Phil replied, obviously delighted by the fact that I was serious enough to actually take notes.
'But Phil, what does this have to do with the Yud? I had no idea we were stepping into a Dan Brown novel.'
'This is more than a novel,' he said, his tone becoming more serious. 'This is real, and it's important. I also don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that so much depends on it.'
I took a deep breath and sat back in my seat. Things had suddenly taken a dramatic and unexpected turn.

'Tell me what you know about the Yud,' I said to Phil when we were settled in our hotel in downtown Lausanne. We sat at a small table in the lobby and tried to maintain a healthy distance from the other guests. 'You were there at the test screenings of
The Moses Code
in Madison and Chicago, and you told me that you saw the final version in Austin.'
'The Yud and the Moses Code are just the beginning,' he replied. 'From the moment the comma flashed on the screen, I knew you were onto something - it's the tip of the iceberg, as I said before. You must know or at least suspect that there's a whole lot more beneath the surface.'
'I didn't know that at first,' I confessed, taking a sip of water. 'I honestly thought that it really was a comma. I'm not Jewish, and I had no idea what a Yud was. Since then, though, it's all I've been hearing about.'
'I'm not surprised. Let me tell you a few things about the Yud, and then you'll know how close you are. The Yud is the tenth and smallest letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Each letter of this specialized alphabet is a crystallization of an aspect of the Divine Word, or the Sacred Name. The Yud is the building block from which all other letters are generated. It has been said that all the other letters are generated by its movement.'
Phil took out a notepad and drew a Yud for me. It reminded me of a flame, or a flag unfurling in a breeze. It also reminded me of a comma.
'This is getting interesting,' I said. 'Keep going.'
'For many, the Yud is being
, pure being - a symbol of the omnipresence of God in the world. It's also the smallest letter and represents the primal vibration of the Universe. It's the only Hebrew letter literally suspended in space - a bridge between worlds, you might say. The beautiful thing is that within the Yud is held the potential of all things to come into manifest being. It may very well be the point of light in the mind and heart of God . . . a point of condensed love and light, or what some people call the ?middle point.' It teaches us that within the smallest of things lies the greatest potential for creation.'
'I also heard that the Yud represents the hand of God,' I said. 'But the real question is, ?What does that mean?' Is it a real hand or a metaphorical one? Or both? If God had a hand, what would it look like? Would it sweep through the sky like some kind of Michelangelesque nightmare, or would it be like a gentle wind?'
'The hand of God is definitely reaching down from Heaven right now,' Phil said, 'but it may not be as gentle as we would like to think. There was a time when it could have been, but no longer. There are no simple answers, and the clock is ticking.'
'What would you say it is?' I asked, sensing the urgency that was beginning to show in his voice.
'I'd say that the Yud is like a pause that's pregnant with possibility. The use of the comma in The Moses Code
was a brilliant stroke. It creates the pause that allows Divine Inspiration to enter. Commas also connect; they are bridges. But the pause, to me, is the key. Are you familiar with The Essene Gospel of Peace
and the third communion with the Angel of Air?
'The Essene Gospel of Peace
. . . yes. Wasn't that the one translated by Edmond Bordeaux Szekely?'
'Szeleky had access to the secret vaults within the Vatican,' Phil said. 'The gospel he found talks about the ?Holy Breath which is placed higher than all the other things created.' It says that between the breathing in and the breathing out is contained all the mysteries of the Infinite Garden. The comma allows for that pause.'
'That's an interesting parallel,' I remarked. 'Is there anything else you can tell me about the Yud?'
'Like I said, the Yud is the smallest letter in the Hebrew alphabet and is commonly understood to represent the finger of God that points the way. It can also symbolize the hand - the hand being a symbol of the power of creative or directed energy. You see, the closed hand, or fist, signifies Unity, the Creator. The open fist is the symbol of man and our inborn potential to re-evolve back into Oneness. In fact, the Hebrew word for hand is yad
. It's the middle point. Also, the yin-yang symbol is a representation of two Yuds in the harmonious flow of dynamic equilibrium. The Yud, like all the others, is a letter of fire, or of flame - meaning that the letters of the alphabet are expressions of the Creative Fire out of which all things are born and into which all things will eventually return. It connects one to that Great Creative Fire. Each letter is an aspect of that Creative Force.'
'That's why Moses's burning bush wasn't consumed by the flames,' I offered. 'This is what I wanted to bring out in The Moses Code
: the information that Moses needed was already within him, just as it is already within us. Fire gets the energy moving, like electrons that begin firing and revealing their hidden qualities. That's what needs to happen to each one of us. We need to burn inside a bit.'
'A Divine Burn.'
'Right . . . exactly. We burn and become like popcorn kernels that suddenly explode into something new.'
'I'm never going to look at popcorn the same way again,' Phil said, laughing. 'But seriously, time, as we perceive it with our linear minds, is speeding up, accelerating. There's not a moment to waste. When I saw the movie, I knew you were ready.'
'What am I ready for?'
'You're ready to do a lot more than talk about the Moses Code,' Phil answered. 'You're also ready to do more than write about how the Divine Name was revealed to Moses and how to use the secrets contained within it. It was a step, I'll grant you, a rather large step, but you're ready to do something much more important - and much more dangerous.'
'Why dangerous? I'm not one to shy away from danger, but I have to know if this is real or just some kind of lesson you're trying to teach me. You spoke on the phone about demons and angels guarding ancient seals or being caught in some elaborate trap. How much of that is true?'
'Whatever you're willing to allow yourself to believe is true. What do you think?'From The Kabbalah Code, ?2009 by James F Twyman, published by Hay House.
