Then one of the seraphim flew to me, with a glowing coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the alter. He touched my mouth with it, and said, 'Look, this has touched your lips; your iniquity is removed, and your sin atoned for.'
yitro “Jethro, the minister of Midian”
Exodus 18:1 – 20:23
All the tribes gathered at Mt. Sinai for what was the most significant moment in Jewish history where everyone at the same time experienced a spiritual revelation. All the letters and words of the Torah - and the ten declarations or ten commandments happened simultaneously as a synesthetic event they heard what they saw and saw what they heard and were so awed that they uttered as a unit “we will do and we will hear.” Even the unborn children in their mothers’ were aware of this miracle. All were crowned for their commitment to the truth of the Oneness of the Creator.
As Moses stepped onto the mountain to receive the revelation, the mountain itself was ablaze with fire and smoke and it rose up and would soon hover over all the people gathered there. This spiritual fire has formed the structure of two triangles with one heading up and the other down combing energies and together they form the “mogen dovid” – the star of David. At the base of the mountain are altars for each of the 12 tribes. As the sky was lit up with lightening and thunder and hail, thousands of angels seen here in purple on the arcs of blue as they shouted the praises of Hashem. The letters in the thick cloud are the first words of the first commandment “I am (yud heh vov heh – the unpronounceable name of Hashem indicating endless mercy and wisdom) elohim (the deity associated with judgment). From the smoke emerge the ram’s horn whose center is a series of concentric circles which is another representation of the Sefirot.
