I am keen to have an online circle over the next few months and would like to know if there is interest and if so what time is best for all?

I was born by a river
Rolling past a town
Given no direction
Just told to keep my head down

As I took my position
A man fired a gun
I was so steeped in tradition
that I could not run...
September 08, 2016, 09:43:05 PM
I was raised by a river
Weaned upon the sky
And in the mirror of the waters
I saw myself learn to cry

As my tears hit the surface
I saw what had been done
I gave feet to my freedom
And I did run

Someday later I saw

the writing in the dust

It told me how I should travel
It told me who I was...

I will die by a river
As it rolls away
Bury me in the nighttime
Do not waste the day

High above the waters
That roll on to the sea
All the angels in heaven
Will laugh at me

My life was naught but a river

Rolling through my brain
Made of so many teardrops
Made of so much pain

MerKaBa also spelled Merkabah is a term  derived from מרכבה "chariot" in  Hebrew.
It is our Chariot of Fire .
Mer" means Light. "Ka" means Spirit. "Ba" means Body.
Mer also derives from the sea and navigation. It is the term meant to imply the chariot.
Initially the merkabah will be a pale monochrome tetrahedron , usually white , yellow , blue , or pink . But over time it becomes much more sophisticated and crystal like in structure changing in intensity , speed and vibration.
The merkabah is our Divine Light vehicle. Known since ancient times, Ezekiel wrote about his visions of it  and  Mohammed spoke of travelling in a sphere of fire to visit with angels .
http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x366/AuntClair/Projection/240px-Ezekiel-Vision-Merkaba.jpg

1 Ezekiel 1-26~13 In the midst of the living beings there was something that looked like burning coals of fire, like torches darting back and forth among the living beings. The fire was bright, and lightning was flashing from the fire. 14 And the living beings ran to and fro like bolts of lightning.15 Now as I looked at the living beings, behold, there was one wheel on the earth beside the living beings, for each of the four of them. 16 The appearance of the wheels and their workmanship was like sparkling beryl, and all four of them had the same form, their appearance and workmanship being as if one wheel were within another. 17 Whenever they moved, they moved in any of their four directions without turning as they moved. 18 As for their rims they were lofty and awesome, and the rims of all four of them were full of eyes round about. 19 Whenever the living beings moved, the wheels moved with them. And whenever the living beings rose from the earth, the wheels rose also. 20 Wherever the spirit was about to go, they would go in that direction. And the wheels rose close beside them; for the spirit of the living beings was in the wheels. 21 Whenever those went, these went; and whenever those stood still, these stood still. And whenever those rose from the earth, the wheels rose close beside them; for the spirit of the living beings was in the wheels
http://kingjbible.com/ezekiel/1.htm
The basic shape of the merkabah is a double tetrahedron ,which is a a pair of pyramids , one inverted over another.
The pyramids spin in opposite directions.
These sacred geometric energy fields spin around our bodies as an individual merkabah .

The Basic Merkaba is an essential tool to ascension . Initiates become aware of this soul vehicle as their energy body develops . In dreams and mystic visions , we see images of sacred geometry which is echoed in art and music around us in syncronicity. When we have become capable of clairaudience and our clairvoyance has developed somewhat since the third eye first opened up , then the the initiate is enlightened through dreamstate lessons , meditation, projection , and healing . As the merkabah is used it transforms over time to become more complex , rainbow hued and stellated .

The Group  Merkabah is the divine light vehicle used by  students of the esoteric  to connect with and reach those in tune with the higher realms including the monadic plane and the ascension chambers.

The Golden Chamber of Melchiezedek in the Great Pyramid @ Shamballah
In this manner a circle of peers may attain the higher planes together confirming what each one sees and hears there . The energy of the group merkabah is much greater than the sum of its parts . And each one within is afforded this higher energy enabling them to clairvoyantly see better and clairaudiently hear better the lessons of the immortal teaching spirits called mahatma .

As the individual merkabahs twist together it is said to look like a this ;
The  Group Merkaba passes into the Ring Pass Not appearing like a "UFO"
As students become more adept in this practice, their lives change profoundly and their eyes open to the unlimited potential of the human spirit!


Works of the Chariot ~Primary Written Sources of the Mystical Qabalah  Ma'aseh Merkabah (Chariot) Literature
http://www.workofthechariot.com/TextFiles/Sources-Merkabah.html

Primary Written Sources of the Mystical Qabalah
F. Ma'aseh Merkabah (Chariot) Literature
 Throne of Glory of El Shadai
Among the principal works of the written Qabalah, significant material is devoted to the description of the Celestial Chariot (Merkabah), or "Throne of Glory of El Shadai." The Chariot is generally an allusion to the Tree of Life, and especially to the four Sefiroth in the central matrix of the three-dimensional Tree of Perfection. These four are collectively referred to as the "Inner Court" of the Tree. The Lord YHVH is variously said to be "riding in the Chariot" and "seated upon the Throne" in the similitude of a man (i.e. Adam Kadmon, the "Celestial Man"). In the Ketuvim (Writings) of the Jewish scripture (called Tanakh), this material is concentrated in the books of Ezekiel 1-3, 8, 10 (see Diagram) and Isaiah 6. Specific verses in these books yield a three-dimensional, six-pointed form of the Tree similar to the one delineated by the Sefer Yetzirah, but with distinct differences in the Inner Court and additional imagery associated with four of the Directional Sefiroth.
The most prolific descriptions of the Merkabah appear in the Books of Enoch. Enochian literature takes its name from Enoch son of Yared. Enoch was "a righteous man in his generation" and "walked with Elohim." It is believed that in ancient times there may have been as many as 100,000 volumes of Enochian literature, nearly all of whose last remains were lost in the fiery destruction of the Great Library of Alexandria. This literature was virtually unknown from the fourth (when banned by Hilary, Jerome, and Augustus) until the late nineteenth century CE, when three manuscripts deemed as authentic Enochian material were discovered. Two of the manuscripts, I Enoch and III Enoch, were in Ethiopian translation: these were found in what was once Abyssinia, the domain of King Solomon's infamous lover, the Queen of Sheba. The third manuscript, called II Enoch and the "Book of the Secrets of Enoch," was preserved in two Slavonic versions: these were found in Russia and Serbia. I Enoch and II Enoch were translated by R.H. Charles. H. Odeburg translated III Enoch ("Hebrew Book of Enoch"). The Books of Enoch that are mentioned here should not be confused with the "Canons of Enoch," which were discovered and translated into European languages in the early nineteenth century. These latter books, which influenced Romantic artists and poets such as Thomas Moore, William Blake, and Lord Byron, are from a different tradition.

The authorship and dates of origin of the remaining Enochian books are obscure. The three manuscripts cited, replete with errors of addition, corruption, and omission, may well be the remnants of volumes given to Sheba by King Solomon and subsequently handed down through generations. At the very least, biblical scholars agree that the Books of Enoch are the most important Apocrypha and Pseudoepigrapha pre-dating the Christian era. It has been well established that all New Testament authors were more or less influenced by them. The translations of the three Books of Enoch had been long out of print by the time the Work of the Chariot Trust republished them in the early 1970's.

The texts address a wide range of topics: there are numerous messianic references, extensive angeologies and demonologies, elaborate descriptions of the various heavens and hells, lists of Divine Names, lists of names of Metatron, and allusions to mystical states associated with ascending the Tree. The most prominent Merkabah sections describe the ascension and transformation of Enoch ben Yared into Metatron, known as "The Youth" (Nar) to whom the Lord YHVH revealed the deepest secrets, and whom the Lord YHVH made the "operational manager" of this universe. Metatron, chief of the angels, is referred to in the Tanakh (notably in Proverbs 22.6 and Job 32.6), as well as the Zohar (I.223b). III Enoch, the "Hebrew Book of Enoch," contains a long discourse on the ascension of the Celestial Chariot by Rabbi Ishmael, the last High Priest before the destruction of the first Temple of Jerusalem. The ascension of Rabbi Ishmael drew vigorous protests from some of the high angels, who objected to the admission of his relatively impure human spirit to the supernal World of Emanation (called Atziluth). When high angels get too close to the supernal Sefiroth in the World of Atziluth, their wings burn. The ascension by Rabbi Ishmael of the Celestial Chariot is a narrative allegory for the mystical ascent of the Central Column of the Tree.

 YHVH Another obscure but important treatise included among Merkabah literature is the Sefer Raziel HaGadol (Book of Raziel the Great), which contains a subtext within it called the Sh'ir Qoma or "Measure of the Divine Body." The Sh'ir Qoma presents copious lists of Divine Names and, uniquely, a series of dimensions ascribed to the "Divine Body" or Yosher (lit. upright) form of the Name YHVH. All current Hebrew texts of the Sh'ir Qoma come from a single text, the corrupt edition published by Eleazer of Worms in Amsterdam in 1701 CE. The dimensions given in that text do not yield a reasonable image. The Work of the Chariot Trust published the first, and until recently only, English translation of the Sh'ir Qoma, and included it in its edition of the Books of Enoch. The translator adjusted the dimensions so that a reasonable Yosher is produced, and the overall size correlates roughly to the currently accepted size of the sidereal universe.

 Sh'ir Qoma The "Sh'ir Qoma" is the vision of the Creation as a unity in the Name YHVH. It is seen when returning from the negatively existent roots of the Tree, looking down at the Sefirah in the throat center from the Sefirah at the crown of the head. The Yosher is a distinctly anthropomorphic form of the Name YHVH. It is encircled by the Leviathan ("leh-vee-ah-than") of Vast Face, described as a "snake devouring its tail." The Leviathan acts as a circular "fence" around the Yosher and defines the field of superimposition. It also displays the ubiquitous mystical principle that "the end is contained in the beginning." An obscure teaching says that the Yosher drips out from Leviathan's fang. This is paralleled in the Tantric tradition, where Shiva is described as swallowing the "poison" of Maya (illusion) and holding it in his throat. In the Sifra Detzniyutha 1, we find the verse:

"The engraving of all engravings appears as a long serpent.
And extends this way and that. The tail is in the head.
The head goes around to the shoulders. Passing and indignant.
Guarding and concealing, revealing itself in a thousand short days."
-Sifra Detzniyutha 1

Merkabah Mysticism and Neo-Sabbatian Kabbalah
Quote
Yakov Leib haKohain
According to Rabbi Nathan of Gaza, Sabbatai Zevi's chief Prophet and exegete, "A man who busies himself with matters pertaining to AMIRA"H [Sabbati Zevi], even by telling stories only, is considered like one who studies the Merkabah." That is, "busying oneself" with Sabbatai Zevi is a "substitute" for the study of Merkabah Mysticism. Gershom Scholem considers this one of Nathan's "most important" pronouncments (Mystical Messiah, page 925)? But why? To answer this question we must first understand what Merkabah Mysticism is, and the spiritual rewards that are claimed for participating in it.
THE WORK OF THE CHARIOT
Merkabah, the contemplation of the Divine Chariot seen by Ezekiel in his vision of God (Ez 1:4), is possibly the oldest-known and most-powerful form of Jewish mysticism. Of it, the Talmud states, "The subject of . .. the work of the chariot [may not be expounded] . . . unless [one] is a sage who has innate understanding [of it]. Whoever speculates on [the work of the chariot], it would have been better if he had not come come into the world." (Mishnah Hagigah 2:1) It then goes on to relate the story of when R. Eleazar asks R. Johanan to teach him the secrets of the Merkabah:
"They seated themselves under a tree. A fire descended from heaven and encompassed them; the ministering angels danced before them as the attendants of a wedding canopy do to bring rejoicing to a groom. One angel called out of the fire: 'The work of the chariot is indeed in accord with your exposition, Eleazar b. Arakh.' At once the trees opened in song: 'Then shall all the trees sing before the Lord' (Pa 96:13).  When R. Eleazar completed his discourse on the work of the chariot, R. Johanan ben Zakkai stood up and kissed him on the head and said: 'Praised be the Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who has given Abraham our father a wise son who knows to expound the work of the chariot. (TJ Hagigah 2:1)
It is for this experience of Merkabah, and the following spiritual gifts it brings, that Nathan claims "telling stories only" of Sabbatai Zevi is a substitute.
THE REWARDS OF CONTEMPLATING THE CHARIOT
According to one mystical text, the rewards of contemplating the Merkabah (which Nathan says are also the rewards of "busying oneself with matters pertaining to AMIRAH") are the following:
"1. Said R. Ishamel: [What are the rewards to] one who desires to contemplate the mysteries of the chariot, to enter upon it in peace and return in peace?
"2. The greatest of his rewards is that it brings him into the celestial chambers and places him before the divine throne and he becomes knowledgable of all future events in the world: who will be thrust down and who will be raised up, who will be weakened and who will be strengthened, who will be impoverished and who will be made affluent, on whom will be decreed death and on whom life, from whom will be taken away an inheritance and to whom will be given an inheritance, who will be endowed with Torah and who with wisdom.
"3. Greater than this is that he becomes knowledgeable of human behavior. If a person commits adultery he knows it; if a person commits murder he knows it; if he is suspected of having relations with a woman during her menstrual period, he knows it. Greater than these is the fact that he becomes a savant in the arts of magic.
"Greater than this is that whoever should raise his fist at him and hit him would be covered with leprosy. Greater than this is the fact that whoever should slander him would be smitten with wounds and growths which produce festering boils on the skin.
"Greater than this is that he becomes distinguished among all people in his behavior and is honored among higher and lower beings. Whoever should inadvertently injure him will suffer injury; and misfortunes will descend on him by heavenly decree, and whoever should raise his hand against him will suffer retribution from the heavenly tribunal." (Pirkei Hekhalot Rabbati 1:2-5)

The merkabah is the divine light body . All humans have one . It is not 55 feet wide . It develops over time with increased vibrations going from one monochrome simple structure of 2 pyramids to a complex rainbow coloured stellated merkabah over time . Typical beginning colours are white , yellow , blue , pink. As each flame of kundalini is "raised ", the merkabah develops to a higher resonance and vibration in sound, colour and energy power .

Mohammed told stories about going in this chariot of fire to see the realms and the angels .
Some unscrupulous people sell methods to manifest a merkaba for 950 $ on the net . This is not necessary . You can develop for free using energy work , meditation  , projection and healing .

As you develop your energy body the merkabah will develop also . The vibration of the energy body is directly related to the sophistication of the merkabah and the ability to attain any realm at will .

Will attempt to find images to repair the original text.
But today I reacted to a post on Facebook by Tyler Porter and thought I would share that here , also;

IMHO and IME;
The Merkabah is the subtle energy sacred geometry light vehicle which changes from a simple tetrahedronal monochrome shape
to increasingly complex and sophisticated forms once activated by the user it becomes multicoloured but remains pastel and double tetrahedronal for some time and after shamynic or mystic pathworking becomes jewel toned multi hued and multi faceted in a crystalline multi stellated structure. The merkabah is used innately by some and encompasses others in projection without their awareness of it . The merkabah can be seen clairvoyantly and felt clairsentiently.

The Group Merkabah , on the other hand, must be cultivated and it is much more powerful at raising the consciousness of the mystic towards enlightenment by linking peers over multiple lifetimes so that the pathworking is recalled and continued and what is reaped by one is the fruit of the all.

The merkabah name comes from sacred syllabic language which are one syllable tones and terms that can be used in ceremonial magick. These have roots in many languages. Mer is having to do with the sea but in this case the sea of stars and realms . Mer is translated traditionally as meaning light though.
Ka and ba are parts of the ancient egyptian consciousness and body mer having to do with navigation and the concept is adopted by the Semitic tribes and is translated as the The Throne of God and the Chariot of Fire as referenced in song and literature and in the Bible and earlier sacred texts.
