THE SYMBOLISM AND SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE OF 144 and 128

THE SINGERS

128 MARKS THE END OF THE WORLD

compiled by Dee Finney

144

These numbers are right out of the Bible - all the way from the Old Testament through the end of the New Testament. Who could argue the validity of these numbers?

A possibility is that 144 is related to the 144,000 in Rev. 7:4-8 and Rev. 14:1. They are 12,000 people from each of the 12 Tribes. There are many interpretations about the meaning. My guess is that Blavatsky was right, the 12 Tribes are also related to the 12 signs of the Zodiac. That would include anyone born under those signs, which could include everyone. The number itself may be symbolic. Carl Munck and others have done a lot of research into ancient numbers. There is a form of Gematria that basically uses multiples of 36. So, you have 36, 72, 108, 144, etc.

The 1260 days in the Bible are also part of it. All these numbers are divisible by nine and add to nine or a multiple. Carl shows overwhelming evidence that they were used to exactly position the ancient sites around the world. There was a code system with it, where "Alpha" or word meanings are given to the numbers. 144 means "Light." Two German researchers have shown that the numbers are also appearing in the crop circle formations in their measurements, angles, and such.

We know that numbers are extremely important with regard to creation:

"9 is the number of the mythic Lords of Time, the number representing the original Mayan galactic masters themselves." - Arguelles, The Mayan Factor

"9 = Magic number of the Maya. All relevant numbers compound to 9 (except the Special Number 260)". - Gilbert & Cotterell, The Mayan Prophecies

All alphanumeric values have been calculated using A=1 through Z=26.

Cross addition of multidigit numbers has been used to calculate single the digit value (ex: the single digit value of 54 is 9 by adding the two digits 4 and 5).

MAYAN = 54 (9)

FIFTY FOUR = 126 (9)

54 + 126 = 180 (9) (also, 1/2 of 360 degrees in a circle)

54 + 54 = 108 (9) (also, base ten harmonic of Grid Lat. of Miami Circle)

108 = 1/2 of 216 (9) (also, base ten harmonic of 21600, Grid Lat. of Stonehenge)

54 + 126 + 260 (Mayan Tzolkin) = 440 (musical note, "A" in standard CPS)

A = 1

440 + 1 = 441 (9)

54 = base ten harmonic of 5400, Grid Point Value of the Sphinx.

SPHINX = 90 (9)

90 + 54 = 144 (9) (also, Gematria number for speed of light)

SPEED OF LIGHT = 126 (same as alphanumeric value of FIFTY FOUR & FORTY FIVE)

126 + 144 = 270 (9) (also, 3 x SPHINX)

270 + 90 = 360 (9) (also, degrees in a circle)

90 + 126 = 216 (base ten harmonic of 21600, Grid Lat of Stonehenge)

90 + 126 + 54 = 450 (9) (also, base ten harmonic of MIAMI=45)

MIAMI = 45 (9)

FORTY FIVE = 126 (9)

45 x 2 = 90 (SPHINX)

90 x 2 = 180 (9) (also, sum of MAYAN=54 + FIFTY FOUR=126)

Here are some example of Gematrian numbers:

144 = Light

288 = Double light, the Kingdom of Heaven.

432 = Consecration (also the square root of the classical speed of light, 186624 miles per second). Several Biblical references are also tied to it; Luke 8:15, Revelation 2:17, etc.

396 = Classical earth radius (3960 miles).

576 = Prophecy and Gospel.

864 = Time (2) the source of light and life, (3) Most Holy.

1152 = Witness (576 x 2). Biblical references include Luke 14:26, Revelation 3:12, 12:11 and 19:9.

1296 = Circle of space (360 x 60 x 60). 1296 was also Plato's favorite number.

1548 = Priest of God.

1728 = A-flat in music.

2304 = False Christs and False prophets (1 Cor. 14:22, Mark 13:12).

3168 = Lord Jesus Christ.

3888 = New Jerusalem (Rev. 21:2, 1 Cor. 12:27, Luke 8:21, etc.).

5184 = Victory over the beast (Rev. 15:2).

Even more amazing is the fact that the same system of numbers given in the Bible was used by the ancient Mayans in the West in their very precise time-keeping! And they never read the Bible before the Spanish came to conquer them. The Mayans used a 20-day month in their calendar. Here is a table of some Mayan Calendar units and their equivalent Gematrian numbers :

 20 days     = 18 kin *288   days = 20 bactun 36 days     = 20 uinals *576 days   = 20 pictun 72 days     = 20 tuns *1152 days = 20 calabtun *144 days = 20 katun *2304 days = 20 kinchilton

Also interesting, The Woman with Child in Revelation 12 has a crown of 12 stars. The New Jerusalem has 12 gates, angels, jewels and pearls. The symbol of the Heart chakra is a 12-petal Lotus Flower. John Mitchell, author of City Of Revelation, shows a diagram of the New Jerusalem Plan, based on St. John's vision. It has 12 circles in a ring, with a 12-pointed star inside, formed by four overlapping triangles. The Zodiac is often depicted in a similar way. If you take the circles to be 360 degrees each, it comes to 4,320.

Crop circle researches report that a similar Plan is found by dowsing within certain crop patterns, as well as at ancient sites, such as Stonehenge and Avebury. 432 is part of a Gematrian numbering system, that seems to be based on adding the number 36. 1656 and 25920 are two of them. Others are 144 or 144,000, and 1260, which also appear in Revelation. Each number had an "Alpha" or word meaning. 432, for example, means "Consecration." Some believe that the numbers were encoded in the Bible to transmit messages across time itself. Carl Munck has shown that these numbers were part of a very ancient system for positioning ancient sites around the world. His friend, and mine, James Furia, has shown that the musical scale is related. The centering note is "A" at 432 cps, rather than the standard 440.

The number 153 is very important, and I won't go into all of the aspects here, except to point out that it is half of 306, which in turn is the sum of 144 + 162 .... and these numbers are decimal harmonics of Bruce Cathie's speed-of-light equivalents of 144000 nautical miles per 'grid second' and 162000 nautical miles per second. We also find 306 as azimuth node number 17 on the 'wheel of 20 nodes', where the nodes are 18 degrees apart. The 20-part wheel (see work of Joe Mason) is also a symbol of the Mayan Haab Calendar cycle of 18 'months' of 20 days each month.

17 x 9 = 153

JESUS - 153 AND FISH

We might also note what happens when we take the number 360 (number of arc degrees in a circle) and divide it by 144:

360/144 = 2.5

The number 2.5 is a decimal harmonic of the alphanumeric value of the letters in the word "Pi" (P=16, i=9, then 16+9=25).

Madame Blavatsky (1831-1891) - world renown mystic and founder of the Theosophical Society - wrote about the many cultures in which "speaking stones" and "singing stones" were elements of their spiritual/religious practices. There are ancient stories of special "speaking stones" (whatever "speaking" might have meant) which moved of their own accord. When someone would remove the stones from their original spot, the same stones would appear the next day in the spot from which they were removed.

CIRCLE OF SOUND=144

CIRCLE OF TONES=144

CIRCLE OF STONE=144

The number 144 is considered, in the Hebrew tradition, to be one of the holiest of gematrian numbers ("Gematria"; an ancient system of assigning meaning to the alphanumeric values of words and phrases. A practice common to the Greek and Hebrew mystics). As noted in previous CodeZone articles, I've found 144 to be a significant number also in my work with our English language based on the Roman alphabet. It has several special alphanumeric relationships to both spiritual symbolism and, of course, the all-mysterious number "9". For example:

NINE IS THE KEY = 144 (1+4+4=9)

NINE IS JESUS = 144

THE GOD OF ISRAEL = 144

Now we'll see the number 144 as it links to music, or the concept of "tones", via the Gematrian Music Wheel of James Furia (See Figure 3):

144 = the note of "D"

144 x 2 = 288 = D

144 x 3 = 432 = A

144 x 4 = 576 = D

144 x 5 = 720 = no direct correspondence

144 x 6 = 864 = A

144 x 7 = 1008 = no direct correspondence

144 x 8 = 1152 = D

144 x 9 = 1296 = E

Note carefully the notes above - and we notice that the singers would have used them.

45+144 = 189 = THE TONE IS THE KEY

In the musings of Gary Val Tenuta on the mysteries of Stonehenge he imagined the 30 Sarsen uprights and the 59 Interior Bluestones each with a human being standing at the place of each stone. Two circles of humans, one circle inside the other. The outer (sarsen) circle of people are linked to each other by holding hands, like the upright stones are linked by the lintels. They're moving in one direction (so the "wheel" is turning [SPIN THE WHEEL=144], and they're chanting a certain tone. The inner (Bluestone) circle of people are not holding hands (because those stones are not linked to one another like the sarsen stones) but are moving in the opposite direction, chanting a different tone. The musical tones "A" and "D"? And maybe a group in the center are stationary and are intoning the "E". Why? A Stonehenge Hootenanny? Or maybe it created a counter-rotating merkaba (spiritual vehicle) which could lift giant stones or transport the chanters to other dimensional realms.

NOTE: Again, we have the singers involved

We have just seen the connection of 144 to Stonehenge, now we see it connected to the White House in Washington, D.C.

THIRTEEN blocks due north of the very center of THE WHITE HOUSE, the Masonic HOUSE OF THE TEMPLE

HOUSE OF THE TEMPLE=193, 1+9+3=13

THE WHITE HOUSE=166=13

THIRTEEN=99=18=9

NINE=42 (6)

42+9=51 (6)

51+9=60 (6)

42x3=126 (ONE TWENTY SIX=193=13)

ONE+TWO+SIX = 144

NINE IS THE KEY = 144

THE GOD OF ISRAEL = 144

144+13=157=13

13x2=26 (number of letters in Roman/English alphabet)

ROMAN ALPHABET=126 (ONE TWENTY SIX=193=13)

ENGLISH ALPHABET= 139=13

126+139=265=13

My dreams and visions are full of numbers:  Here is an interesting one from 1998:

10-17-98 - DREAM - Joe and I moved into this new apartment building. I'm sure this was the same building at the previous dream. I was a teacher of the children here. We lived on the 3rd floor. Joe and I were in our apartment and Becky (my ex-daughter-in-law) came to visit. The door to the hallway was open and the couple across the hall was having a fight. A tiny little girl came walking into the apartment and came over to where Joe and I were sitting. Her name was Judy. Joe picked her up and she climbed over onto my lap and I held her. I wanted Becky to see her. Judy was a tiny child like in the previous dream. She had little legs and arms but a bigger head and thin blonde hair. Becky wasn't paying attention, just looking around the apartment. I tried to get her attention, but then she went to the bathroom to "take a crap" and she didn't see the child. The child left and then I had to take Becky back out of the building and we went down the elevator. The door opened on the 2nd floor and I could see on the 2nd floor was still under construction. when I came back to the building, I stopped at the little gift shop by the front door of the lobby. All three items were for sale and had been hand crafted by people who lived in the building. I had to move a black shiny bicycle to see the items . I couldn't get it to stand up by itself so had to lay it down.

I particularly paid attention to two items. One was a stained glass candle holder. It was an upright box. The edges were made of thin sticks of wood. The walls of the box on the lower sides were opaque greyish white glass and on the top were various triangles of blue green, red and yellow. It was really pretty. One of the other items which I looked very closely at a series of thread works similar to tatting. It was made of thin sticks frames and n between the sticks the thread work was done in intricate knots. The thread was very thin crochet cotton of bright blue. the price on the 3 inch one was \$272. (2 x 72 = 144 = Light) There were two smaller sizes and two larger sizes. The two larger ones were labeled "Ask for price". they were that expensive. I wanted to try to make this myself but knew I wouldn't remember the design. I thought maybe I could xerox the pattern but there were other people in the shop and I couldn't sneak one out and copy the pattern.

The building maintenance man came in then and wanted to make an appointment to come upstairs. He sat down at a table. I told him he was going to have to call before he came up. I had trouble coming up with the number because we had just moved in. I said it was 278-3874. ( 2+7+8+3+8+7+4 = 39 = 12 or 3) I had to emphasize the 3 because it was trying to look like a 5. I told him he had to be there before 10 p.m. because the aliens came between 10 and 11:30 p.m.

I put the bicycle away before I left. I then went to the elevator. The door opened and a tall, thin, black woman got off. The elevator was dark inside. She said, "One other is going up with you."

I hesitantly got on the elevator not knowing what to expect. When I turned around to face the door the light brightened in the elevator and I saw a tall thin blonde woman standing to my right. Since I'm almost 6 foot tall myself, the blonde woman had to be at least 7 feet tall.

As the elevator went up, the door opened on the 2nd floor as it had on the way down. I told the woman that this floor was under construction but was surprised to see how much work had been done since I went down the elevator. They were in process of putting pink insulation into the walls of the rooms now.

The door closed and we ascended to the 3rd floor. The door opened and we both got off the elevator. Ahead of us were brightly lit showcases full of jewelry of gold and silver. I particularly noticed a pair of earrings that were made of many long strands of gold linked together and it glittered in the light. The woman admired the jewelry and I said, "This is nothing!" You should see the showcase down this way...pointing down the hall toward where my apartment was.

At the same time, I noticed that there was a railing beyond the showcases where one could look over at something several stories down. (In several other dreams there were exotic animal places.) This time I didn't look because I heard someone screaming from way down the hall towards where my apartment was.

The man was screaming, "Aliens! Aliens! Aliens!" From that I knew it had to be 10 p.m. but I didn't want to confront the screaming man. (Note: I wasn't afraid of the aliens, I just didn't want to confront the screaming, out of control man) So, I ran into an open closet where the light was on. I tried to shut off the light but it wouldn't go off and I tried to shut the door and it just swung through. The door was shaped really weirdly. It was narrow on the top and really wide at the bottom, with one side on an angle like a trapezoid.

I could hear the man coming down the hall still screaming, "Aliens! Aliens! Aliens!" I ducked down behind a dresser-like thing with drawers in it, hoping he wouldn't see me if he came into the closet, but he ran all the way into the closet anyway, and I had to stand up and calm him down. when I got done explaining that everything was all right, he started singing the line from the song that goes, "Life is just a bowl of cherries."

NOTE: I told Joe about the glass candle holder. He asked me if I could draw it and I said, "Yes!" He wants to make one. I went on the computer and found on-line instructions for tatting, macrame, and string art. Now we are in business.

4-10-99 - VISION - I saw two triangles...one from the left and one from the right. They came together, one above the other, then I saw the number 172. (perhaps a timing number)

(1x72 = 72 = Number of the divine names of God and the 72 years is 1 degree of the precession of the equinoxes through the zodiac signs. 72 x 360 = 25,920 (the precession number of years)

"Sacred Geometry is sacred because it describes certain shapes,
such as the Golden Rectangle that were often used in the design of
"sacred" buildings such as temples, churches, and pyramids."
"Sacred Geometry is sacred because the Ancients, in their lack of
sophistication, ascribed sacredness to certain geometric forms that
possess what we sophisticated moderns call mathematical "elegance".

6-3-98 - DREAM - These numbers appeared on a computer screen as a password....

115   1/4    2    1152

In the dream I was working in a large office building in downtown Milwaukee. Outside the large windows, I could see outside towards Lake Michigan with huge steel-grey waves coming in to shore.

We were working late ... overtime and I wasn't doing anything, so I asked my boss if I should start cleaning up two tables which were out in the outer hallway/lobby. One table had red and gold objects on it and the other table had silver objects on it.

My female boss said, "No! My boss wants you to work in your own office. By the way, I've been told that we won't be needing as many people to work soon, and the criteria is that whoever works will have to like working by the lake. (I was thinking, "It's cooler in the summer and you never need air conditioning.)

I told her, "I don't care if I work by the lake or not, but I'd really like the job." I then walked into my own office which was immense ... like a 1/2 block wide, long, and high, carpeted in royal blue and I noted there wasn't a speck of dust or anything out of place anywhere.

I then saw the computer screen and password and as I struggled against all odds to remember the numbers as I was waking up, I could still see the scene in the dream like sliding around a corner and I found myself in a long ... dark ... room with a bank of lit computers and the first one had a grey rectangle at the bottom of the screen where the previous numbers were listed,

115   1/4    2   1152

After the dream I had a vision which said, "1152 is a military code for ESP".

NOTE: 1152---Gematria Witness (es)

144 = 12 (disciples) squared

144 x 4 (for winds 4 directions) = 576 Prophet (cy)

576 x 2 = 1152 Witness (es)

Translation =where two gather in my name (two prophets)--so shall I be --the witness to the two prophets - and then there were three

Leonardo Fibonacci (alias Leonardo of Pisa) was a mathematician born around 800 years ago back in medieval times (1175AD). He noticed that all plants grow in a certain way. A plant will grow one leaf, and then it will grow one more. In order to do that, it simply adds what it just grew to where it is now to determine what to grow next. The sequence goes like this: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233... At the 5th leaf (in preparation to grow the next bunch) the plant looks back at what it just grew (3), adds it to where it is now (5) and then grows: 8 more leaves. This is organic structure. Leonardo noticed that the number of petals a plant has directly corresponds to this sequence.

One thing about this Fibonacci sequence is that it creates a curve. The sequence is blended into this curve or spiral. Some Fibonacci spirals are really noticeable. For example, the horn of a ram curls around with the same ratio and so do nautilus shells. Sometimes you'll see spirals going in both directions at once. You can see this on a pine cone or a sunflower. If you count the number of spirals going one way relative to the number of spirals going in the opposite direction, they are going to create the Fibonacci series. An example would be 34 spirals going one way and 55 spirals going the other way. In sunflowers, you will find the ratios 5-8, 8-13...all the way up to 144-233 counter rotating spirals.

In the Valley of Mexico, ancient Teotihuacan, “the place where men became Gods,” sprawls near latitude 19.5 degrees north, close to modern Mexico City. A wonder of antiquity – of unknown origins and of uncertain age – its four-kilometer-long Way of the Dead is overlooked by three monstrous pyramids: the Pyramid of the Sun, the Pyramid of the Moon, and the Pyramid of Quetzalcoatl (a god of ancient Mexico).

In 1974 Hugh Harleston, Jr., a civil engineer obsessed with Meso-American since the 1940s, presented a controversial and revolutionary study of the city of Teotihuacan at the 41st International Congress of Americanists.

After 30 years of calculation, and more than 9000 on-site measurements, he stumbled across the hitherto unknown system of measurement used at Teotihuacan – which he named the STU (Standard Teotihuacan Unit), which is equivalent to 1.059 meters.

Harleston found that the measurements of structures in Teotihuacan, and also the distances between specific structures, are governed by a distinct sequence of numbers in STUs – notably 9, 18, 24, 36, 54, 72, 108, 144, 162, 216, 378, 540, and 720 STUs. For example, the length of one side of the Pyramid of the Sun at the base is 216 STU, and its center lies 720 STU south of the center of the Pyramid of the Moon.

The number 144 and its harmonics 1440 and 144000 are connected to the Great Pyramid at Giza as well.

Enoch has told mankind that we are being changed through 'negative entropy' and moved into a new 'star seed' evolution. A "Pillar of Light" which is the Merkabah will realign us as we make this change. This regenerating program is implanted in us and the 'Pillar of Light' will protect those who are implanted while all else not protected by this "Pillar of Light' will be allowed to completely dissipate.

This realignment can only take place at the end of a cycle when there is a space-time overlap. The placing of the "Pillar of Light' occurs just before entering a null zone. The null zone is a necessary element to make this realignment. This 'Pillar of Light' is our shield which protects our genetic code while we go through the electro-magnetic null zone. Otherwise our mind would not be able to adapt to the new frequency of light and would be destroyed.

This electro-magnetic null zone creates of vacuum area in space which changes the magnetic forces of creation. The Councils which oversee this particular creation are helping us to make this transition so that those who wish to become more Christ-like will be assisted into the upward spiral of Light while those who are not interested in making this change will be allowed to leave through the old 'technology of death'.

The Councils in charge of this transition are the Council of Nine which governs our local universe, the Council of Twelve which governs new programs of creation, and the Council of 144 which oversees the spiritual Hierarchies.

At the same time, there is a galactic war going on which is removing those who refuse to participate in the Grand Plan which had been set up for Israel. A new program will gather together those from the dissipated and scattered twelve tribes, including allowing intelligent Man to move to other planets and allow those from other planets to communicate with us here on Earth.

Before this can all happen, Earth must go through a gross geo-magnetic and catastrophic change as the North and South Poles reverse their charge.

While this is happening, our solar system will enter a space where no electromagnetic fields exist...an electromagnetic null zone. This is what is happening now as evidenced by the charts above. Cosmic waves will enter our Earth at the Polar regions and penetrate the entire globe. People in the northern latitudes can see the Proton charges coming to the earth from the sun in the Aurora Borealis.

The fulfillment of the Biblical Book of Revelations is now taking place. Fortunately for us, science has progressed to the point where we are allowed to see what is happening as well as having the awareness to experience it and go through the changes willingly or leave the Earth in the old way of 'death'.

During this time period, those who do not take advantage of our opportunity to be of service to mankind will undergo terrible agonies of food shortages, deadly plagues, wild beasts, and wars. This was prophesied in the book of Revelations as the great Seals are opened by the Angels in charge. Revelations - Chapter 6

The Trumpets are then sounded which resets the planets in a new arc as the celestial capstone (referenced in the Vision which sets off this piece of study) descends from space and is placed upon the Pyramid of Giza which is a model of God's plan of salvation, which is beneath the pyramid itself.

In the book of Revelations we find 144 as part of the building process of the walls of Holy City:

Revelation: 21

1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death of mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

5 He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."

6 He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. 7 He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son. 8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars-their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death."

9 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb." 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. 11 It shone with the glory of God, sand its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. 12 It had a great, high wall with twelve gates, and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. 13 There were tree gates on the east, three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three on the west. 14 The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

15 The angel who talked with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city, it's gates and it's walls. 16 The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12,000 stadia in length, and as wide and high as it is long. 17 He measured its wall and it was 144 cubits thick, by man's measurement, which the angel was using. 18 The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. 19 The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, 20 The fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst. 221 The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass.

22 I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.

24 The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it. 25 On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there. 26 The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it. 27 Nothing impure will ever enter it, not will anyone who does what is shameful and deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life.

There are 144 Kriyas or breathing techniques

Babaji's Kriya Yoga is a scientific art of perfect God Truth union and Self-Realization. It was revived by a great Master of India, Babaji Nagaraj, as a synthesis of ancient teachings of the 18 Siddha tradition. It includes a series of 144 techniques or "Kriyas" grouped into five phases or branches.

1. Kriya Hatha Yoga: including "Asanas", physical postures of relaxation, "bandahs", muscular locks, and "mudras", gestures, all of which bring about greater health, peace and the awakening of the principal energy centers, the "chakras". Babaji has selected a particularly effective series of 18 postures, which are taught in stages and in pairs. One cares for the physical body not for its own sake but as a vehicle or temple of the Divine.

2. Kriya Kundalini Pranayama: the potential technique, is a powerful breathing exercise to awaken powerful latent energy and circulate it through the 7 principal chakras between the base of the spine and the crown of the head. It awakens their corresponding psychological states and makes one a dynamo on all five planes of existence.

3. Kriya Dhyana Yoga: meditation, the scientific art of mastering the mind: to cleanse the subconscious, develop concentration, mental clarity and vision, to awaken the intuitive and creative faculties, and bring about the breathless state of communion with God, "samadhi".

4. Kriya Mantra Yoga: the mental repetition of subtle sounds to awaken the intuition, the intellect and the chakras; the mantra becomes a substitute for the "I" centered mental chatter and facilitates the accumulation of great amounts of energy. The mantra also cleanses habitual subconscious tendencies.

5. Kriya Bhakti Yoga: devotional activities and service to awaken pure Divine universal love and spiritual bliss; it includes chanting and singing, ceremonies, pilgrimages, and worship. Gradually, all of one's activities become soaked with sweetness, as the "Beloved" is perceived in all.

Kriya Yoga brings about an integrated transformation of the individual in all five planes of existence: physical, vital, mental, intellectual and spiritual. Everyone can practice it and thus find happiness and peace.

Psalm 144 (World English Bible)  (The singers)

1 Blessed be Yahweh, my rock, Who teaches my hands to war, And my fingers to battle: 2 My lovingkindness, my fortress, My high tower, my deliverer, My shield, and he in whom I take refuge; Who subdues my people under me. 3 Yahweh, what is man, that you care for him? Or the son of man, that you think of him? 4 Man is like a breath. His days are like a shadow that passes away. 5 Part your heavens, Yahweh, and come down. Touch the mountains, and they will smoke. 6 Throw out lightning, and scatter them. Send out your arrows, and rout them. 7 Stretch out your hand from above, Rescue me, and deliver me out of great waters, Out of the hands of foreigners; 8 Whose mouths speak deceit, Whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

9  I will sing a new song to you, God. On a ten-stringed lyre, I will sing praises to you. 10 You are he who gives salvation to kings, Who rescues David, his servant, from the deadly sword. 11 Rescue me, and deliver me out of the hands of foreigners, Whose mouths speak deceit, Whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood. 12 Then our sons will be like well-nurtured plants, Our daughters like pillars carved to adorn a palace. 13 Our barns are full, filled with all kinds of provision. Our sheep bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields. 14 Our oxen will pull heavy loads. There is no breaking in, and no going away, And no outcry in our streets. 15 Happy are the people who are in such a situation. Happy are the people whose God is Yahweh.

Bible CommentaryMatthew Henry Commentary -- Psalm 144

Life Lessons: Book of Psalms

Psalm 144:1-8

When men become eminent for things as to which they have had few advantages, they should be more deeply sensible that God has been their Teacher. Happy those to whom the Lord gives that noblest victory, conquest and dominion over their own spirits. A prayer for further mercy is fitly begun with a thanksgiving for former mercy. There was a special power of God, inclining the people of Israel to be subject to David; it was typical of the bringing souls into subjection to the Lord Jesus. Man's days have little substance, considering how many thoughts and cares of a never-dying soul are employed about a poor dying body. Man's life is as a shadow that passes away. In their highest earthly exaltation, believers will recollect how mean, sinful, and vile they are in themselves; thus they will be preserved from self-importance and presumption. God's time to help his people is, when they are sinking, and all other helps fail.

Psalm 144:9-15

Fresh favours call for fresh returns of thanks; we must praise God for the mercies we hope for by his promise, as well as those we have received by his providence. To be saved from the hurtful sword, or from wasting sickness, without deliverance from the dominion of sin and the wrath to come, is but a small advantage. The public prosperity David desired for his people, is stated. It adds much to the comfort and happiness of parents in this world, to see their children likely to do well. To see them as plants, not as weeds, not as thorns; to see them as plants growing, not withered and blasted; to see them likely to bring forth fruit unto God in their day; to see them in their youth growing strong in the Spirit. Plenty is to be desired, that we may be thankful to God, generous to our friends, and charitable to the poor; otherwise, what profit is it to have our garners full? Also, uninterrupted peace. War brings abundance of mischiefs, whether it be to attack others or to defend ourselves. And in proportion as we do not adhere to the worship and service of God, we cease to be a happy people. The subjects of the Saviour, the Son of David, share the blessings of his authority and victories, and are happy because they have the Lord for their God.

In the number 144, according to Fathers of the Church, the hundred expresses the Unit of the divine world (the Unit of God) 4 of the ten, the stability of the angelic world, 4 of the Unit, the eternal stability of the Holy City, whose form is precisely a cube.

When several kinds of symbolic significance are contained in the multiples of a number, the symbolism of this number is consequently enriched and reinforced. This is why the number 144 is considered as very favorable because on the one hand we obtain by theosophical reduction 9 = 1+4+4 and that on the other hand we find among these 14 divider numbers 72, 36, 24, 12, 9 and 8 which are very rich in symbolism.

When one adds the number of petals of the five inferior psychic centers, we obtain a total of 48 petals. By adding the 96 petals of the frontal center (the place of the third eye where the small number must receive its divine mark), we obtain the number 144, symbol of the perfect and expressed spiritual work, that is to say of the marriage between the soul and the personality.

The rosicrucians think that there exists in the Universe 144 kinds of different atoms, even if the science has not still discovered them.

The Graal comprised 144 facets.

The number 144 was often used as measurement for many Christian buildings and for some pagan buildings of 1st millennium of our era: 144 ells for the church of the Holy Sepulchre at Jerusalem, the mausoleum Saint-Helen in Rome, the marian church of the Gorizim Mount, the pagan rotunda of Salonic known as Saint-Georges, and the 144 feet for the Palatine Chapel of Aix-the-Chapel. The origin of this measurement comes from the Revelation (Apocalypse) where John attributes to the periphery of the celestial city 144 cubits. (Rv 21,15-17).

The traditional horoscope is summarizes essentially with the 12 signs of the zodiac, but with the ascending, we obtain 144 possible divisions.

Another 144 dream: 3-16-02 - DREAM - I was working in an office like A-C. Some of the employees were from there. My old boss Ron K. was the boss.

I was in charge of the timekeeping book, volunteers and gift donations, also the birthday club.

I had been given a gift of perfume on my last birthday and it really meant a lot to me.

The boss, Ron K. came in late in the day to sign in. He said he had gotten out of breath coming up the stairs. He didn't look very healthy - heart attack material for sure. His wife was wit him. She said she had been scheduled for surgery at 4 p.m. and gave it up to bring him in.

Ron gave me a small piece of paper with his employee I.D. # on it. I opened the timekeeping book to his page and made sure his numbers were logged in properly.

Each employee had two numbers - the social security number and a special I.D. number.

My birthday is the day after Christmas and this was past that. I was cleaning up the decorations. there was a box of old white crepe paper streamer rolls about an inch wide. There were only 12 left out of a box of 144 - the ends were yellowed and old but I decided to save them anyway for another celebration to come.

Around the corner from the office was the big hatch that went to the incinerator. I caught a glimpse of a man standing there. He would open the door so refuse could be thrown down. The fire down below was always kept burning. I didn't like going near that hatch because it was big enough for a man to fall into.

7-21-02 - DREAM - My Father died and left me everything he had. I started going through the rooms. Every room was full of file cabinets, drawers, shelves, hanging hooks, on top of, under and over everything. (Sounds like my own house :-) ) It was full of 'stuff'.

There were other women wandering around in the house and I was giving them things. Most of them wanted Christmas decorations - Christmas was months away.

I even found a dented plastic Easter egg, but I couldn't throw it away because it belonged to my Father.

Since I had moved into his house, al my own stuff was in some of these rooms too.

Two men from the fire department came to inspect the records for the community. I found the book that listed everything we had, but they wanted to see the actual certificates, licenses, etc. Those were filed alphabetically in one of these file cabinets, but which one? I knew I was going to have to go through every drawer until I found them.

Meantime, the two men sat by the front door and waited for me.

I started opening drawers of the file cabinets and seeing what was in them. One whole file cabinet was full of files about the people who were in TV shows. I knew he didn't watch TV all that much, but he kept track of everything the people did.

There were knickknacks hanging everywhere there was never just one - there was always 12 of everything, including Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse who each stood on a pedestal with two little red candles on each side of them.

In one file cabinet, on the side of the file was stuffed yellow plastic bags to put 'stuff' into when one moves. I pulled those all out to put used children's clothing in that nobody could wear anymore because they had outgrown it. That I could give to the Good Will store.

A young woman with kids was there in that room with me. Everything I held up was too small for her kids except that there as a black and white tweed coat in size 11 that would fit her son. But when I looked at it, it was designed for a girl and fit my daughter.

I found some winter mittens that didn't have fingers in them and were stretchable so I gave 4 pair to her and told her to give them to the neighbor kids as well because it was going to be cold.

I opened a drawer and it was full of packages of candy bars that were like Tootsie roll type chocolate on sticks. There were 12 packages of 12 candy bars each individually wrapped within the wrapped package. She didn't want any candy, but I insisted she take it anyway and put it in the freezer to keep it until she wanted to give them to her kids. 12 x 12 = 144.

In another room on top of one file cabinet were packages with paintbrushes. In this room I saw MIchelle and her sister behind a file cabinet on the other side of the room. I knew Michelle was an artist so I thought I'd give her whatever paintbrushes she needed.

So I asked her what size she needed. She said "G", so I pulled out a package. Unfortunately, all the brushes were gone except "G", so I saved it for her.

I don't know why Michele and her sister were behind the file cabinets - what could you see from 'behind' them?

A little girl came up to em and said, "Remember a couple years ago, I gave you a gift of a little angel figurine? I've looked and looked and I don't see it anywhere?

I felt bad that she didn't find her angel. I said " "Well I'm sure its here somewhere - I now I didn't throw it away. It's probably in the bedroom or the bathroom."

So we set off through the maze of rooms again, some of which I hadn't even been in yet, to look for the little girl's angel.

Outside in the yard, all my kids and their friends were playing a hot summer game, slinging mud balls at each other. None of them had any real clothes on. They were all wearing leaves and flowers over their private parts.

They were having a good time so I just left them to their game.

 288 As early as 1990, I dreamed of this number; 2-17-90 Dream: I went to pick up my children. It was a : 172 = 10 = 1 (1 x 72 = 72 = The names of God ) I was bringing my children home. It was a : 372 = 12 = 3 ( 3 x 72 = 216 which symbolizes "names of God spoken in the Holy of Holies in the tabernacle") (See this movie: PI ) I went to pick up some black people. It was a : 472 = 13 = 4 ( 4 x 72 = 288 which symbolizes 'double light') I was bringing the black people home. It was a : 572 = 14 = 5 ( 5 x 72 = 360 - The Gematrian Wheel - a complete circle) 144 = Light 288 = Double light, the Kingdom of Heaven. 432 = Consecration (also the square root of the classical speed of light, 186624 miles per second). Several Biblical references are also tied to it; Luke 8:15, Revelation 2:17, etc. SEPHIRA MALKUTH: "288 sparks from broken vessels" 10^(288/2/37) = 7796.36013 STONEHENGE: diameter = 288 units 10^(288/2/37) = 7796.36013 Here again the singers are needed: 144 = the note of "D" 144 x 2 = 288 = D 144 x 3 = 432 = A 144 x 4 = 576 = D 144 x 5 = 720 = no direct correspondence 144 x 6 = 864 = A 144 x 7 = 1008 = no direct correspondence 144 x 8 = 1152 = D 144 x 9 = 1296 = E The Mayans used a 20-day month in their calendar.
