10

10 (Partzuf 3) is the third fruit of the tree of life, corresponding to Binah. It is the third divine visage out of the twelve divine identities (12 Partzufim).

Binah is the understanding of the wisdom of God flowing from God into the hearts of men. Understanding is a light in the hearts of humans. Through understanding, we see with our hearts and mind; not with our physical eyes.

There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. (Revelation 22:5) "NKJV"

Night: Ignorance

There shall be no night there: ignorance is defeated

Light: understanding

The Lord God gives them light: God gives them understanding

Wisdom without understanding is useless; where there is no understanding, there is no resurrection from the dead.
The Lord will enable you to understand it all.   (2 Timothy 2:7) "GNT"

Lack of understanding was the reason why humans were separated from God. Lack of understanding is described as,
“God made their minds and hearts dull; to this very day they cannot see or hear.”          (Romans 11:8) "GNT"

They cannot see: they lacked understanding

Man has the ability to free himself of sin only if he has understanding of the hidden wisdom of God. Substituting reasoning with frequent prayers and requests for the forgiveness of sin implies lack of understanding.

May their eyes be blinded so that they cannot see; and make them bend under their troubles at all times.” (Romans 11:10) "GNT"

May their eyes be blinded: may they not understand

That they cannot see; and make them bend under their troubles at all times: lack of understanding will cause them to beg for their sins always.

Without understanding man can't comprehend the wisdom of God required to free mankind from the bondage of sin. This is where the mercy of God comes in.

I will forgive their sins and will no longer remember their wrongs. (Hebrews 8:12) "GNT"

Through mercy, understanding comes from God into the hearts and minds of humans.

I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. (Hebrews 8:10) "GNT"

Therefore everyone is able to comprehend and appreciate the wisdom of God through the entry of understanding into the hearts and minds of human beings. Understanding the wisdom of God is what it means to know God.

None of them will have to teach their friends or tell their neighbors,  ‘Know the Lord.’ For they will all know me, from the least to the greatest. (Hebrews 8:11) "GNT"

Qibla Compass

Qibla compass is a compass design showing clearly that Islam is a direction, and Muslims constitute just one out of the many directions of a compass. Some of the other directions of the compass are Sikhism, Gnosticism, Judaism, Hinduism, Christianity, Atheism, Psychology, Philosophy, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Taoism, Baha'i Faith, Babism, Rastafarianism, etc.

Qibla compass is designed specifically to help Muslims locate the direction of Mecca and pray facing the Kaaba. Some designs have the word "Mecca" inscribed as the most prominent direction on the compass; others have the image of the Kaaba or a Mosque signifying the qibla (Muslim direction) on the compass.
Although Judaism doesn't have a compass to show Jews what direction to face during prayers, the fact that Jews all over the world pray toward the Temple Mount is an evidence that Judaism is a direction and the Temple Mount is the qibla of the Jews.
Every religion is a compass - the centre of the comp…

Isosceles Right Triangle

An isosceles right triangle is a triangle with two 45° angles, a right angle and two equal sides. The side opposite the right angle is the base and the two equal angles are the base angles. The ratio of the sides opposite the two 45° angles is 1:1.

Isosceles right triangle is the product of an isosceles triangle and a right triangle.

The three sides of the isosceles right triangle correspond to the following three sides of a right triangle:
OppositeAdjacentHypotenuse The three sides are equal to the three persons of the Blessed Trinity as follows:
Opposite = Father (First Person) Adjacent = Son (Second Person) Hypotenuse = Holy Spirit (Third Person)
The linear magnitude of each person of the Blessed Trinity can be calculated via any of the six trigonometric ratios if either the angle facing the opposite side or the angle facing the adjacent side is known.
Let the angle facing the opposite side be Y. The side opposite the right angle is the hypotenuse and the remaining side is the adja…

Mandala

Mandala is a two dimensional representation of the axis mundi: the junction between the physical and the metaphysical. The physical is man or the earth, the metaphysical is God or heaven (sky), and Mandala is where God and man or heaven (sky) and earth are reconciled.

The universe is the sum of heaven and earth.

Universe = Heaven (Sky) + Earth

A mandala (emphasis on first syllable; Sanskrit मण्डल, maṇḍala – literally "circle") is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe(Wikipedia)
We learnt from the Taiji that the axis mundi represents balance or stability. Therefore the universe of the axis mundi is the orderly universe known as the cosmos, which means that Mandala is a two-dimensional representation of the cosmos.

"mandala" has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe. (Wikipedia)
Mandala is simply a square and …
