The sword that prevents us entering freely into our own deeper levels of concentration and understanding is created and strengthened by misdemeanour, moral or religious errors. Thus, conversely, moral purity, as described by the Torah and Masters, can lessen or even remove this sword.
Importantly, according to the Zohar (as Kabbalah Online informs us), the magickal Hebrew letter associated with a sword of the Cherubim, that is, the sword of judgment, is the Hebrew letter vav (ו):
The vav is the body of the sword, the six directions of the world ...
The power which showed its face in my world tonight was the hand of the Cherubim (as opposed to the sword of the Cherubim).
The Encyclopedia of Angels informs us about the hands of the Cherubim:
Their hands are under their wings and their feet are covered by their wings; they have horns of glory upon their heads.
Sounds alot my artistic photographic rendition of tonight's supermoon (see picture) - I've got got a cherub here tonight sans sword.
