--- CONCEPTS
--- THE SEFIROT
  Sefirot ::: meaning emanations, are the 10 attributes / emanations in Kabbalah, through which Ein Sof (The Infinite) reveals Himself and continuously creates both the physical realm and the chain of higher metaphysical realms (Seder hishtalshelus).
  Sefirah (pl. Sefirot) ::: a channel of Divine energy or attribute used in Creation

  Keter ::: "Crown" - Divine Will to create / Infinite Light of the Creator / the Hebrew name of God "Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh - I Am that I Am"
  Keter ::: First of the sefirot, keter means "crown." It is the link, so to speak, between the emanations of the sefirot and the perfect unity of the Ein Sof.
  Chokmah, Hokmah ::: "Wisdom" - The second Sephira of the Tree of Life. Chok mah means "Wisdom" and represents the Sphere of the Stars. It is the first concentration of the influence of Nuit
  Chokmah ::: Translated as "Wisdom" in Hebrew. The second Sephirah of the Kabbalah. It is representative of Primordial Force: the active, masculine, yang energy that characterizes reality and which vivifies the lower Sephiroth on the Pillar of Mercy. Along with Kether and Binah, Chokmah is associated with the Supernal Triad and the Causal Plane (i.e the First World) and is the Big Bang which gives rise to the emergence of dualistic reality through its coital union with Binah.
  Binah ::: "Understanding" - the infinite flash of Chochmah brought into the vessel of understanding to give it grasp of breadth and depth / feminine vessel that gives birth to the emotions / reason / understanding brings teshuva return to God
  Da'at ::: "Knowledge" - Central state of unity of the 10 sefirot, also called the Tree of Life.
  Chesed ::: "Kindness" - Loving grace of free giving / love of God / inspiring vision
  Gevurah ::: "Severity" - Strength / discipline / judgment / withholding / awe of God
  Tiferet, Tifaret ::: "Beauty" - Symmetry / balance between Chesed and Gevurah in compassion. Tiferet is regarded as the center of the sefirot, and is sometimes depicted as the center of a wheel.
  Netzach ::: "Eternity" - 'perpetuity', 'victory', or 'endurance'
  Hod ::: "Splendor" - Withdrawal / Surrender / sincerity
  Yesod ::: "Foundation" - Connecting to the task to accomplish / wholly remembering / coherent knowledge
  Malkuth ::: "Kingship" - Exaltedness / Humility. All the other Sefirot flow into Malkuth (like the moon which has no light of its own), and it is the final revelation of the Divine; the receiver and the giver

--- FOUR UNIVERSES
  Adam Kadmon ()
  Atzilut ::: (Emanation) - the Manifest Absolute or Godhead
  Beriah (Creation)
  Yetzirah (Formation)
  Asiyah (Making)

--- OTHER CONCEPTS
  Ein Sof ::: Name given to the Divine infinite in Kabbalistic thought. Early kabbalists conceived of the Ein Sof as the absolute perfection in which there is no distinction or plurality. While "God" may be thought of in relational or conceptual terms, the Ein Sof transcends these categories. Importantly, the infinite really is infinite - it does not end anywhere. Therefore, it is all there is. (lit. "without end")
  Atziluth ::: Kabbalists believe the manifestation of our material world was caused by the immanent activity of God on four different planes, or in four worlds, simultaneously.The 1st World, Atziluth, is the World of Emanation in which God manifests himself in the form of the archetypes Kether, Chokmah and Binah. The union of God with his Shekhinah (his feminine counterpart) also takes place in this world, and the fruits of this union are the three worlds which follow.
  Shekhinah ::: Divine presence. The Bible refers to God's dwelling in the midst of the children of Israel (Exod. 13:21-2; 40:34-8). Subsequently the concept of the Shekhinah embodied God's presence in the world. In Kabbalistic sources the term Shekhinah refers to the tenth Sefirah, representing God's feminine aspect.
  Asiyah'::: The World of Action; Asiyah'the lowest of the four worlds of Creation.
  Klippoth ::: The "world of shells" of Kabalistic cosmogony, formed from the emanations of the Yetzirah (q.v.).
  Nefesh or lower soul ::: the seat of unrefined passions

  Olam ha-Tohu ::: "World of Chaos"
  tohu ::: the formation of the universe
  tikkun ::: its spiritual restitution
  Nekudot ::: "World of Points"

(Malchut)




--- QUOTES
The object of the theoretical (as separate from the practical) Qabalah, insofar as this thesis is concerned, is to enable the student to do three main things: First, to analyze every idea in terms of the Tree of Life. Second, to trace a necessary connection and relation between every and any class of ideas by referring them to this standard of comparison. Third, to translate any unknown system of symbolism into terms of any known one by its means.
~ Israel Regardie, A Garden Of Pomegranates: Skrying On The Tree Of Life

one gradually equilibrizes the whole of one's mental structure and obtains a simple view of the incalculably vast complexity of the universe. For it is written: "Equilibrium is the basis of the work." Serious students will need to make a careful study of the attributions detailed in this work and commit them to memory. When, by persistent application to his own mental apparatus, the numerical system with its correspondences is partly understood-as opposed to being merely memorized-the student will be amazed to find fresh light breaking in on him at every turn as he continues to refer every item in experience and consciousness to this standard.
~ Israel Regardie, A Garden Of Pomegranates: Skrying On the Tree Of Life
---
The tree represents a series of divine emanations of God's creation itself ex nihilo, the nature of revealed divinity, the human soul, and the spiritual path of ascent by man. In this way, Kabbalists developed the symbol into a full model of reality, using the tree to depict a map of creation.
The symbolic configuration is made of 10 spiritual principles, but 11 can be shown, since "Keter" and "Da'at" are interchangeable.
The tree of knowledge of good and evil is equivalent to the 10 spheres seen from the last sphere of the diagram ("Malkuth"), and the original tree of life is equivalent to the 10 spheres seen from the middle sphere of the diagram ("Tiferet").
Kabbalists believe the tree of life to be a diagrammatic representation of the process by which the universe came into being.
On the tree of life, the beginning of the universe is placed in a space above the first sphere (named "Keter" or "crown" in English). It is not always pictured in reproductions of the tree of life, but is referred to universally as Ain Soph Aur ("Ein Sof" in Hebrew or "endless light" in English).
To Kabbalists, it symbolizes that point beyond which our comprehension of the origins of being can't go. It is considered to be an infinite nothingness out of which the first "thing", usually understood among Kabbalists to be something approximating "energy", exploded to create a universe of multiple things.
Kabbalists also don't envision time and space as pre-existing and place them at the next three stages on the tree of life.
---
First is "Keter", which is thought of as the product of the contraction of "Ein Sof" into a singularity of infinite energy or limitless light. In the Kabbalah, it is the primordial energy out of which all things are created.
The next stage is "Chokhmah" (or "wisdom" in English), which is considered to be a stage at which the infinitely hot and contracted singularity expanded forth into space and time. It is often thought of as pure dynamic energy of an infinite intensity forever propelled forth at a speed faster than light.
Next comes "Binah" (or "understanding" in English), which is thought of as the primordial feminine energy, the supernal mother of the universe which receives the energy of "Chokhmah", cooling and nourishing it into the multitudinous forms present throughout the whole cosmos. It is also seen as the beginning of time itself.
Numbers are very important to Kabbalists, and the Hebrew letters of the alphabet also have a numerical value for the Kabbalists. Each stage of the emanation of the universe on the tree of life is numbered meaningfully from one ("Keter") to ten ("Malkuth"). Each number is thought to express the nature of its sphere.
The first three spheres, called the "supernal" spheres, are considered to be the primordial energies of the universe. The next stages of evolution on the tree of life are considered to exist beyond a space on the tree, called the "Abyss", between the "supernals" and the other spheres, because their levels of being are so distinct from each other that they appear to exist in two totally different realities. The "supernal" spheres exist on a plane of divine energy. This is why another correspondence for "Binah" is the idea of suffering because the "supernal" maternal energy gives birth to a world that is inherently excluded from that divine union.
After "Binah", the universe gets down to the business of building the materials it will need to fulfill its evolution and be creating new combinations of those materials until it is so dense that, by the stage of "Malkuth", the initial pure limitless energy has solidified into the physical universe.
Since its energies are the basis of all creation, the tree of life can potentially be applied to any area of life, especially the inner world of man, from the subconscious all the way to what Kabbalists call the higher self.
But the tree of life does not only speak of the origins of the physical universe out of the unimaginable but also of man's place in the universe. Since man is invested with mind, consciousness in the Kabbalah is thought of as the fruit of the physical world, through whom the original infinite energy can experience and express itself as a finite entity.
After the energy of creation has condensed into matter, it is thought to reverse its course back up the tree until it is once again united with its true nature: "Keter". Thus, the Kabbalist seeks to know himself and the universe as an expression of God and to make the journey of return by means of the stages charted by the spheres, until he has come to the realization he sought.

TERMS STARTING WITH

Kabbalah ::: Also "Qabala" and "Kabala". Here we refer to Hermetic Kabbalah although this system has its roots in the Jewish mystical tradition. Kabbalah is a map that describes reality through a process of causal emanation. It describes how consciousness emerges and takes on the variety of expressions of the manifest Universe through force/form dynamics at multiple levels of Itself. See Sephirah.

Kabbalah Denudata (Kabbalah Unveiled). Incorporates

Kabbalah ::: Literally, “Receiving,” either in the sense of a received teaching dealing with mystical or esoteric matters; or in the sense of receiving direct experience of ultimate reality. Technically, Kabbalah refers to Jewish esoteric teachings which evolved primarily in the medieval period, regarding the hidden life of God and the secrets of his relationship with his creation.

kabbalah ::: Kabbalah Kabbalah is an esoteric Jewish mystical tradition that places mystical significance on letters and numbers, and their interrelationships. Kabbalah means received or tradition and its symbolism has influenced Christianity, Ritual Magick, Wicca, Freemasonry and many other faiths and traditions.

abulafia ::: Abulafia, Abraham Abraham Abulafia was a thirteenth century Jewish mystic most notable for transcribing Jewish oral Kabbalah into written form, which up until this time had been very jealously guarded.

abyss ::: Abyss In Ritual Magick and Kabbalah, the Abyss is the divide between individual ego-consciousness and Cosmic consciousness (enlightenment). In Kabbalah, it is the divide between the Supernal and the lower Sephiroth, i.e. the divide between the higher and lower states of existence. The serpent Choronzon is the 'dweller' in the abyss, the final great obstacle between the magician and true enlightenment. See Oath of the Abyss for further details.

A. E. Waite, The Holy Kabbalah, p. 53.

air ::: Air One of the four alchemical elements. In Ritual Magick and Kabbalah, it is the element overseen by the Archangel known as Raphael. Air has the qualities of coolness and dryness, and is associated with breath, life, communication, and the holy spirit.

alexandrianwicca ::: Alexandrian Wicca A tradition of the Neopagan religion Wicca, named after Alex Sanders who, along with his wife Maxine, established the tradition in the 1960s, having previously been an initiate of a Gardnerian coven. Generally, Alexandrian Wicca focuses strongly upon training which includes areas more generally associated with Ceremonial Magick, such as Kabbalah and Enochian Magick.

Angel ::: Derived from the Latin for "messenger", this term means different things in different traditions. From the perspective of the Kabbalah there are orders of angels: levels of consciousness with a sense of "self-identity" that guide and interact hierarchically with humanity and other conscious forms.

Angelic Order (Kabbalah) ::: In the Kabbalistic paradigm, these are the legions of consciousnesses associated with a particular Sephirah and which are under the dominion of a particular Sephirah's archangel. These are the workhorses of each Sephirah's energy and are linked to the Yetziratic aspect of each Sephirah.

Archangel (Kabbalah) ::: The main consciousness that the aspirant can call to and work with that is associated with a particular Sephirah and which is linked to the Briatic aspect of that Sephirah. Typically the archangel is viewed as the most powerful aspect of that Sephirah that can be worked with, while the God Name refers to the purest, most primordial manifestation of that Sephirah's energy.

Ari or Arizal (Rabbi Isaac Luria) :::
Ari is an acronym for &

as cited in Runes, The Wisdom of the Kabbalah.

as listed in Runes, The Wisdom of the Kabbalah.

Attunement ::: The process of moving the mind toward a specific archetype's (or set of archetypes') symbolism and meaning. In planetary magic, for example, to attune oneself to a planetary sphere (i.e. a Sephirah of the Kabbalah) is to focus and suffuse oneself within the symbolism and meaning behind that sphere in order to integrate or undergo its lessons in one's life. Only through this process can magic be woven from within that paradigm as to work magic with that archetype you need to understand that archetype, how it works, and its relation to Mind.

Based on an ancient Midrashic source (Bereishit Rabbah 14:9) Kabbalah and Hassidism speak of five levels or gradations of the soul:


binah ::: Binah Binah is the third Sphere (Sephirah) of divine emanation according to Kabbalah. The word Binah means understanding. See also The Sephiroth.

Binah ::: Translated as "Understanding" in Hebrew. The third Sephirah of the Kabbalah. It is representative of Primordial Form: the receptive, feminine, yin energy that characterizes reality and which constrains, demarcates, and bounds the lower Sephiroth on the Pillar of Severity. Along with Kether and Chokmah, Binah is associated with the Supernal Triad and the Causal Plane (i.e the First World) and is the Mother of Form and Womb through which dualistic reality emerges through its coital union with Chokmah. Associated with the sphere of Saturn in the planetary magic paradigm.

  “called Hermetic and Esoteric Sciences. In the West, the Kabbalah may be named; in the East, mysticism, magic, and Yoga philosophy, which latter is often referred to by the Chelas in India as the seventh ‘Darshana’ (school of philosophy), there being only six Darshanas in India known to the world of the profane. These sciences are, and have been for ages, hidden from the vulgar for the very good reason that they would never be appreciated by the selfish educated classes, nor understood by the uneducated; whilst the former might misuse them for their own profit, and thus turn the divine science into black magic” (TG 237).

called Sheiriel. [Rf. Waite, The Holy Kabbalah, p.

Causality ::: The process through which the diversity of dualistic experiences emerge that characterize a current state of awareness, a particular thread or stream of Mind. The Kabbalah is one system that attempts to model this causal process that emanates stages of awareness from Consciousness amid similar maps that depict this ontological stacking of "selves". The Causal Plane is considered outside of the realm of causality because dualistic experience emanates from the Causal: the actual existence of dualistic experience is predicated on a Non-Duality of experience. This is a complex topic and active area of research; causality heavily determines the current form and subjective nature of Mind. See also Samsara and Karma.

Chassidic ::: movement of Judaism that focuses on the study of Kabbalah*; founded by the Baal Shem Tov

Chassidut ::: Movement in Judaism founded by the Baal Shem Tov in 1736. It emphasizes Kabbalah and prayer.

chesed ::: Chesed Chesed is the fourth Sphere (Sephirah) of divine emanation according to Kabbalah. The word Chesed means mercy. Chesed is the first of the manifest Sephiroth. See also The Sephiroth.

Chesed ::: Translated as "Mercy" in Hebrew. The fourth Sephirah of the Kabbalah. It is representative of the first emanation of dualistic force: the expansive, vivifying, yang energy that characterizes phenomenal reality and which fills and enriches the lower Sephiroth on the Pillar of Mercy. Along with Geburah and Tiphereth, Chesed is associated with the Ethical Triad and the Mental Plane (i.e the Second World) and is the raw joy and vivacity of dualistic reality that emerged from the Causal. Associated with the sphere of Jupiter in the planetary magic paradigm.

Chilufei Otiyot (interchanging of letters) :::
The term chilufei otiyot (lit. &

chokhmah ::: Chokmah Chokmah is the second Sphere (Sephirah) of divine emanation according to Kabbalah. The word Chokmah means wisdom. See also The Sephiroth.

Chokmah ::: Translated as "Wisdom" in Hebrew. The second Sephirah of the Kabbalah. It is representative of Primordial Force: the active, masculine, yang energy that characterizes reality and which vivifies the lower Sephiroth on the Pillar of Mercy. Along with Kether and Binah, Chokmah is associated with the Supernal Triad and the Causal Plane (i.e the First World) and is the Big Bang which gives rise to the emergence of dualistic reality through its coital union with Binah.

Da'ath ::: Translated as "Knowledge" in Hebrew. The "hidden" eleventh Sephirah of the Kabbalah. It is described as "hidden" because it is not so much a true Sephirah as it is a function of the state change that occurs between certain, more-or-less, stable stages of conscious experience. It is representative of the convergent-emergent singularity through which consciousness flips between the individual stages of the Four Worlds and especially through which it flips between a dualistic lens and the lens of the Non-Dual. In Kabbalistic terminology, this latter process is representative of the Da'ath between Atzilut and Briah and the state change from Briatic consciousness to Atzilutic consciousness is referred to as Crossing the Abyss.

Finally, when one reaches the epitome of joy, his moment of ecstasy is referred to as sason, whose root sas, which can be read as shesh (six), refers in Kabbalah to the sixth emotion of the heart, the yesod or brit, which experiences the epitome of joy in the union of spirit and matter. (Of the brit it is said: &

earth ::: Earth The 3rd planet from the sun, and the only one in the solar system supporting life as we know it. Earth is one of the four alchemical elements. In esoteric tradition such as Kabbalah, Earth represents the manifestation of matter. Earth has the properties cold and dry, and is associated with physical sensation.

Emanation ::: The process of emergence that characterizes consciousness and the evolution of the self. Kabbalah is one such system that attempts to map the emanation of consciousness: from non-experience to non-dualistic consciousness to increasinly variegated permutations of dualistic consciousness.

Essenes and the Kabbalah, p. 242; see Hashmal.]

Ethical Triad ::: Also "Ethical Triangle". The three Sephiroth of the Kabbalah that make up the fulcrum that is Briatic consciousness (i.e. the Mental Plane).

Etz Chaim (&

Four Worlds ::: A model of the stages of reality described by the Kabbalah in which the Kabbalistic map is partitioned into four rows where each row contains a number of Sephiroth. These illustrate, from the top down, the evolution of Consciousness from the Non-Dual realm of the Causal Plane through the dualistic beginnings of archetypes in the Mental Plane through the visionary capacity of collective and individual imagination in the Astral Plane into the physical expressions of forms in the Physical Plane.

geburah ::: Geburah Geburah is the fifth Sphere (Sephirah) of divine emanation according to Kabbalah. The word Geburah means severity. See also The Sephiroth.

Geburah ::: Translated as "Strength" in Hebrew. The fifth Sephirah of the Kabbalah. It is representative of the first emanation of dualistic form: the constraining, tempering, yin energy that characterizes phenomenal reality and which forges and disciplines the lower Sephiroth on the Pillar of Severity. Along with Chesed and Tiphereth, Geburah is associated with the Ethical Triad and the Mental Plane (i.e the Second World) and is associated with the harsher lessons and laws of dualistic reality that emerged from the Causal; it is representative of those experiences that are necessary to forge a greater complexity of consciousness and a greater understanding of condition and causality. Associated with the sphere of Mars in the planetary magic paradigm.

God Name (Kabbalah) ::: The consciousness associated with the purest and more primordial aspect of a particular Sephirah that is linked to the Atzilutic aspect of that Sephirah.

Ha-K'tav V'ha-Kabbalah ::: (Heb. The Written and the Mystical [Kabbalah]) Torah commentary by Yaakov Zvi Mecklenburg (1785-1865); Prussia.

hod ::: Hod Hod is the eighth Sphere (Sephirah) of divine emanation according to Kabbalah. The word Hod means splendour. See also The Sephiroth.

Hod ::: Translated as either "Glory" or "Splendor" in Hebrew. The eighth Sephirah of the Kabbalah. It is representative of the second emanation of dualistic form: the structuring, comprehensible, yin energy that characterizes phenomenal reality and which exists as the Sephirah closest to physicality on the Pillar of Severity. Along with Netzach and Yesod, Hod is associated with the Magical Triad and the Astral Plane (i.e the Third World) and is associated with the habits, patterns, and structures of the Lunar Personality that emanated from the Mental. Associated with the sphere of Mercury in the planetary magic paradigm.

kabbalah ::: Kabbalah Kabbalah is an esoteric Jewish mystical tradition that places mystical significance on letters and numbers, and their interrelationships. Kabbalah means received or tradition and its symbolism has influenced Christianity, Ritual Magick, Wicca, Freemasonry and many other faiths and traditions.

Kavvanah: A Hebrew mystical term, meaning intention or devotion. (Plural: Kavvanoth.) “The intention directed towards God while performing a (religious) deed. In the Kabbalah, kavvanoth denote the permutations of the divine name that aim at overcoming the separation of forces in the Upper World.” (M. Buber.) The word means also a devoted prayer delivered with great concentration.

Kedushah [&

Kether ::: Also "Keter". Translated as "Crown" in Hebrew. The first Sephirah described by the Kabbalah. It is representative of Unity (Point) Consciousness which is the state of God prior to dualistic emanation. Exists along the Middle Pillar as a stable level of conscious awareness – the Non-Dual level that is the Causal Plane (i.e the First World). Part of the Supernal Triad that is associated with noumenal ("truth beyond truth") reality as opposed to phenomenal reality which is dualistic and causally emanated from the noumenal.

kether ::: Kether Kether is the first Sphere (Sephirah) of divine emanation according to Kabbalah, representing the beginning of creation. The word Kether means crown. See also The Sephiroth.

klippoth ::: Klippoth In Lurianic Kabbalah, the purpose of man is to restore the original harmony in the universe that was destroyed with the breaking of the Vessels (also known as the 'Fall'). The original vessels shattered and fell to earth as the evil Klippoth. Many worlds were created and destroyed prior to the present creation. These are compared with sparks which fly out from a red hot iron beaten by a hammer, and which are extinguished according to the distance they are removed from the burning mass. These creations, which have been succeeded by the present order of things, are indicated in Genesis, chapter 36, verses 31 40. The kings of Edom, who reigned before the monarchs of Israel, are mentioned as having died one after the other. They are the primordial worlds which were successively destroyed, the worlds of the Klippoth.

lurianickabbalah ::: Lurianic Kabbalah In the 16th century Rabbi Isaac Luria (1534 1572), a Jewish scholar and mystic, founded one of the most important branches of Kabbalah, often referred to as Lurianic Kabbalah. In this branch of Kabbalah, the purpose of man is to restore the original harmony in the universe that was destroyed with the breaking of the Vessels (also known as the 'Fall').

Magical Triad ::: Also "Magical Triangle". The three Sephiroth of the Kabbalah that make up the fulcrum that is Yetziratic consciousness (i.e. the Astral Plane).

malkuth ::: Malkuth Malkuth is the tenth and final Sphere (Sephirah) of divine emanation according to Kabbalah, representing the plane of material existence. The word Malkuth means kingdom. See also The Sephiroth.

Malkuth ::: Translated as "Kingdom" in Hebrew. The tenth Sephirah of the Kabbalah. From the human lens it is representative of the final stable stage of dualistic consciousness as emanated from the Causal and Non-Dual. Existing along the Middle Pillar, Malkuth is echo of Kether and Tiphereth. Malkuth is the sum total of all of the previous qualities of the Sephiroth and is hence emergent physicality and is a cohered and persistent emanation of the other three of the Four Worlds. It is the Physical Plane (i.e the Fourth World). Associated with the sphere of Earth in the planetary magic paradigm.

Mathers, The Kabbalah Unveiled.] In the tables

Metatron: According to the Hebrew Kabbalah, the angel who inhabits the Briatic world (see Briah), constituting the world of true spirit and governing the visible world.

Middle Pillar ::: The central pillar (column) on the Kabbalah according to the Three Pillars model. It represents the Sephiroth in the middle. Each of these three Sephiroth reflect a stable stage of conscious awareness (a layer of self) and each is a fulcrum upon which the active/passive dynamics of the Sephiroth on the Pillars of Mercy and Severity above it find balance. So the Sephiroth on the Middle Pillar are emergent Sephiroth resulting from the sum total of the dynamics of the superior (as in "above", not as in "better") Sephiroth on the two adjacent Pillars. Also refers to the preliminary rite of the same name that is used to raise energy before formal works of magic or meditation begin.

mysticism ::: Mysticism The belief that one can rise above reason to achieve direct union with God or the Divine through meditation and intuition. In mystical practices, one attempts to merge with God or the Divine through a disciplined quest to achieve enlightenment. Some forms of mysticism include the Kabbalah, Sufism (Islam), Yoga, and Buddhism.

Netzach ::: Translated as either "Victory" or "Endurance" in Hebrew. The seventh Sephirah of the Kabbalah. It is representative of the second emanation of dualistic force: the fecundating, yearning, yang energy that characterizes phenomenal reality and which exists as the Sephirah closest to physicality on the Pillar of Mercy. Along with Hod and Yesod, Netzach is associated with the Magical Triad and the Astral Plane (i.e the Third World) and is associated with the whims, interactions, and movements of the Lunar Personality that emanated from the Mental. Associated with the sphere of Venus in the planetary magic paradigm.

pathworking ::: Pathworking Pathworking is a magical technique closely associated with the Kabbalah. It is traditionally a type of visionary experience associated with one of the paths of the Tree of Life, although its meaning has been extended to cover any type of semi-guided visualisation on a specific magical idea. Pathworking usually follows a structure and may vary from a guided visualisation (where a scene is set and the events described by one person while they are visualised by the remainder of the group) to the visualisation of a specific symbol, or the intonation of a mantra with further visions being allowed to enter the mind of their own accord. Pathworking is one of the methods used to further the understanding of particular magical ideas.

Philosophic Occulte; Waite, The Holy Kabbalah,

Physicality ::: The property of reality that imparts a physical presence upon the mind; a stability of form that allows for greater expression and introspection to occur. This is a tremendously complicated illusion formed by the mind on its journey from noumenal reality through increasingly complex dualistic layers of Itself. One system that models the causal journey of Consciousness toward greater complexity is the Kabbalah. See also Maya.

Physical Plane ::: Also Assiah. One of the Four Worlds as part of the Kabbalistic map of reality. A realm of reality that we perceive as solid and as solely real. The Physical Plane is a complex superposition of the three planes above it that serves as a foundationally stable lens through which Source Consciousness experiences reality. Exists along the Middle Pillar in respect to the Kabbalah. See also Malkuth and Physicality.

Pillar of Mercy ::: The right pillar (column) when describing the Kabbalah in respect to Three Pillars. It represents the Sephiroth with active, vitalizing, yang qualities that reflect the aspects of Chokmah at each of the Four Worlds. So named because these Sephiroth usually impart a spontaneity and flowing vivacity to conscious experience and to life.

Pillar of Severity ::: The left pillar (column) when describing the Kabbalah in respect to Three Pillars. It represents the Sephiroth with passive, structuring, yin qualities that reflect the aspects of Binah at each of the Four Worlds. So named because these Sephiroth usually impart a constraining, partitioning quality to the spontaneous and flowing nature of conscious experience and of life.

qabalah ::: Qab(b)ala(h) See Kabbalah.

Qabala ::: See Kabbalah.

Qabbalah (Hebrew) Qabbālāh [from qābal to receive, hand down] Also Cabala, Kabala, Kabbalah, etc. Tradition, that which is handed down; the theosophy of the Jews. Originally these truths were passed on orally by one initiate to chosen disciples, hence were referred to as the Tradition. The first one historically alleged to have reduced a large part of the secret Qabbalah of the Chaldees into systematic, and perhaps written, form was the Rabbi Shim‘on ben Yohai, in the Zohar; but the work of this name that has come down to the present day — through the medieval Qabbalists — is but a compilation of the 13th century, presumably by Moses de Leon.

Qlippoth ::: Refers to the Sephiroth of the Kabbalah when devoid of connection to the Causal and to the other spheres in the dance of life. These Qlippothic spheres are thus "shells" and the study of the Qlippoth is a study in hell realm states of consciousness.

Samael: In the Kabbalah, the prince of the spirits of evil.

seferzohar ::: Sefer Zohar The Sefer Zohar consists of mystical commentaries and homilies on the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Bible). It was written by Moses de Leon (13th century AD) but attributed by him to Simon ben Yohai, the great scholar of the 2nd century AD. See also Torah and Kabbalah.

sephirah ::: Sephirah In the doctrine of the Kabbalah, a Sephirah, or sphere, is a divine emanation of God. According to Kabbalah, there are ten Sephiroth (plural of Sephirah), each with its own unique properties. Divine Energy travels through these ten Sephiroth, from Kether, the crown, to Malkuth, the kingdom, resulting in the manifestation of the material plane. These emanations form the Tree of Life, and symbolise the image of the body of God in Adam Kadmon.

Sephiroth ::: Also Sephirot and sometimes described as spheres. The singular form is Sephirah (also Sephira and Sefirah). The ten (sometimes eleven if Da'ath is included) states of conscious experience that are used to describe the roadmap of reality that is the Kabbalah. The various levels of these spheres and their interactions with the others seek to encompass all of the detailed and exotic permutations of consciousness and movements of the Universe.

Sheaths (Bodies) ::: Relatively stable lenses through which consciousness agglutinates a part of the sum total of its threads of identity around. These are like layers of an onion, the sum total of the layer then defines the being. One way to view these layers is through the Four Worlds model of the Kabbalah which calls each a "body".

shekhinah ::: Shekhinah Shekhinah, being a feminine word in Hebrew, is held by many (particularly exponents of Lurianic Kabbalah) to represent the feminine attributes of the presence of God, based especially on readings of the Talmud.

shemhameforash ::: Shem ha-meforash According to Kabbalah, the 72-syllabled name of God, comprising 216 letters.

Sixtus IV “was delighted and had the Kabbalah translated into Latin for the use of students of divinity” (Albert

Sodalian Oath An irrevocable pledge, implying that the final mysteries had been communicated to one so bound by oath (sod signifying secret, mystery). “The penalty of death followed the breaking of the Sodalian oath or pledge. The oath and the Sod (the secret learning) are earlier than the Kabbalah or Tradition, and the ancient Midrashim treated fully of the Mysteries or Sod before they passed into the Zohar. Now they are referred to as the Secret Mysteries of the Thorah, or Law, to break which is fatal” (TG 303).

Sphinxes —in Mathers, The Kabbalah Unveiled,

Supernal Triad ::: Also "Supernal Triangle" and "The Supernals". The three Sephiroth of the Kabbalah that make up the fulcrum that is Atziluthic consciousness (i.e. the Causal Plane).

Syncretism; Syncretism is the interworking of two or more cultural perspectives into one system. Gnosticism (and therefore Christianity), as well as Kabbalah and the Mysteries of Mithras etc grew from syncretism. This has often been confused with eclecticism but is not the same thing. The latter is a picking and choosing according to taste, without the internal framework of a genuine understanding of function. The former is when two systems come together with cultural perspectives that need to be worked out. Thus the important deeper "hard parts" of a system will still be included after syncratism, but lost on eclecticism.

talmud ::: Talmud This is more or less a term for the Mishna and Gemara when they are considered as one unit. Mishna derives from 'to repeat', and nowadays incorporates the meanings 'to learn' or 'to teach' by repetition. The Mishna came into being basically because the oral law was too vast for any person to remember. Gemara is basically an extension of the oral law and contains complete transcripts in question and answer format enlarging upon the Mishna. See also Torah (below) and Kabbalah.

The angel Metatron, occupies the second or the Briatic World ([‘olam beri’ah]), which is the first habitable world; he alone constitutes the world of pure spirits. He is the garment of [Shaddai], i.e., the visible manifestation of the Deity; his name is numerically equivalent to that of the Lord. (Sohar, iii, 321 a.) He governs the visible world, preserves the unity, harmony, and the revolutions of all the spheres, planets and heavenly bodies, and is the Captain of the myriads of the angelic hosts who people the second habitable or the Jetziratic World ([‘olam yetsirah]), and who are divided into ten ranks, answering to the ten Sephiroth. Each of these angels is set over a different part of the universe. One has the control of one sphere, another of another heavenly body; one angel has charge of the sun, another of the moon, another of the earth, another of the sea, another of the fire, another of the wind, another of the light, another of the seasons, &c., &c.; and these angels derive their names from the heavenly bodies they respectively guard. Hence one is called Venus ([Nogah]), one Mars ([Ma’adim]), one the substance of Heaven ([‘etsem hash-shamayim]), one the angel of light ([’Uri’el]), and another the angel of fire ([Nuri’el]). (Comp.

Thelema ::: A philosophical and spiritual paradigm developed in the early 1900s by Aleister Crowley that emphasizes a central tenet to guide one's actions in the form of the Law of Thelema: "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Love is the Law, Love under Will." Traditionally incorporating Egyptian symbolism and its pantheon, modern Thelema as practiced by groups such as the A∴A∴ and O.T.O. tends to focus on initiations based on the Kabbalah and its Visions (e.g. K&C with the HGA, crossing the Abyss, etc.). The word "magick" with a "k" at the end comes from the Thelemic writings of Aleister Crowley.

“the sea.” [Rf. Runes, The Wisdom of the Kabbalah.]

theurgy ::: Theurgy Kabbalah and Hermetic Magick are both theurgic practices. Theologically speaking, theurgy is divine intervention in human affairs, or the performance of miracles, for example, the harnessing of spiritual forces through ritual to cause transcendent spiritual change.

The World Tree ::: The idea that consciousness blossomed from a single Seed into all the divergent forms of self-expression that exist. Yggdrasil is representative of this process in Norse cosmology. See also Kabbalah.

Three Pillars ::: A manner in which the Kabbalah is partitioned into three columns and where each column contains a number of Sephiroth. The Pillar of Mercy contains the Sephiroth with Yang/Force qualities. The Pillar of Severity contains the Sephiroth with Yin/Form qualities. The Middle Pillar contains the Sephiroth that represent stable stages of conscious experience: a fulcrum of balance between Sephiroth in the other two pillars.

tiphareth ::: Tiphareth Tiphareth is the 6th Sphere (Sephirah) of divine emanation according to Kabbalah. The word Tiphareth means beauty. See also The Sephiroth.

Tiphereth ::: Translated as "Beauty" in Hebrew. The sixth Sephirah of the Kabbalah. It is representative of the first stable stage of dualistic consciousness as emanated from the Causal and Non-Dual. Existing along the Middle Pillar, Tiphereth is the first dualistic echo of Kether (as a stage of stable consciousness). Along with Chesed and Geburah, Tiphereth is associated with the Ethical Triad and the Mental Plane (i.e the Second World) and is the fulcrum of the force-form dynamics of Chesed-Geburah as they stabilized to form Solar Consciousness. Associated with the sphere of Sol (the Sun) in the planetary magic paradigm.

torah ::: Torah A Hebrew word meaning 'teaching', 'instruction', or 'law'. It is written in Hebrew (there are translations), the oldest Jewish language, and is the central and most important document of Judaism, revered by Jews through the ages. It is also known as the Law of Moses, primarily referring to the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Old Testament attributed to Moses. It is accepted that when Moses received the written law on Mount Sinai he also received the oral law, so the Torah includes both the written and oral law, which encompasses the entire spectrum of authoritative Jewish religious teachings. See also Kabbalah.

Tree of Life ::: See Kabbalah.

treeoflife ::: Tree of Life In the Book of Genesis, this is a tree whose fruit gives everlasting life, i.e. immortality. After eating of the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil, Adam and Eve were exiled from the Garden of Eden, after which God set angels to guard the entrance to the Garden fearing they would also eat of the Tree of Life and so become immortal. The Tree of Life is also the symbolic representation of the Kabbalah, comprising the ten Sephiroth and the twenty-two paths of spiritual wisdom. It is a powerful means of gaining personal and spiritual realisation.

Yesod ::: Translated as "Foundation" in Hebrew. The ninth Sephirah of the Kabbalah. It is representative of the second stable stage of dualistic consciousness as emanated from the Causal and Non-Dual. Existing along the Middle Pillar, Yesod is the second dualistic echo of Kether (as a stage of stable consciousness) and its antecedent stage of stability is the Solar Consciousness associated with Tiphereth. Along with Netzach and Hod, Yesod is associated with the Magical Triad and the Astral Plane (i.e the Third World) and is the fulcrum of the force-form dynamics of Netzach-Hod as they stabilized upon the foundations of Solar Conscioussness to form Lunar Consciousness. Associated with the sphere of Luna (the Moon) in the planetary magic paradigm.

1:Thou shalt call Intelligence by the name of mother. ~ Kabbalah, the Eternal Wisdom
2:The Creator desired that the Light be veiled in order to grant existence to the lower beings, which could not otherwise survive in its full presence. ~ Rabbi Moses Luzzatto, General Principles of Kabbalah,
3:The chief mystical text of Kabbalah, the Zohar, says that Malkhut is "the way to that great and powerful tree... 'If one does not enter through this gate, one cannot gain entry to the worlds,' the worlds of the sefirot. As we climb the Tree of Life-from the bottom to the top-we begin with Malkhut, the Mother.
   ~ Elizabeth Clare Prophet, Kabbalah: Key To Your Inner Power,
4:Everyone is searching for something. Some people pursue security, others pleasure or power. Yet others look for dreams, or they know not what. There are, however, those who know what they seek but cannot find it in the natural world. For these searchers many clues have been laid out by those who have gone before. The traces are everywhere, although only those with eyes to see or ears to hear perceive them. When the significance of these signs is seriously acted upon, Providence opens a door out of the natural into the supernatural to reveal a ladder from the transient to the Eternal. He who dares the ascent enters the Way of Kabbalah.
   ~ Z'ev Ben Shimon Halevi, The Way Of Kabbalah,
5:From above to below, the sefirot depict the drama of emanation, the transition from Ein Sof to creation. In the words of Azriel of Gerona, "They constitute the process by which all things come into being and pass away." From below to above, the sefirot constitute a ladder of ascent back to the One. The union of Tif'eret and Shekhinah gives birth to the human soul, and the mystical journey begins with the awareness of this spiritual fact of life. Shekhinah is the opening to the divine: "One who enters must enter through this gate." Once inside, the sefirot are no longer an abstract theological system; they become a map of consciousness. The mystic climbs and probes, discovering dimensions of being. Spiritual and psychological wholeness is achieved by meditating on the qualities of each sefirah, by imitating and integrating the attributes of God. "When you cleave to the sefirot, the divine holy spirit enters into you, into every sensation and every movement." But the path is not easy. Divine will can be harsh: Abraham was commanded to sacrifice Isaac in order to balance love with rigor. From the Other Side, demonic forces threaten and seduce. [The demonic is rooted in the divine]. Contemplatively and psychologically, evil must be encountered, not evaded. By knowing and withstanding the dark underside of wisdom, the spiritual seeker is refined.~ Daniel C Matt, The Essential Kabbalah, 10,

1:Thou shalt call Intelligence by the name of mother. ~ Kabbalah,
2:The essence of the Redemption depends upon learning Kabbalah ~ Vilna Gaon,
3:I dabble in all kinds of spirituality. I studied Kabbalah for over ten years, and you know it's all basically the same. ~ Lisa Rinna,
4:Thinking about quantum physics is like unraveling your brain and putting it back together again upside down. Much like studying Kabbalah. ~ Rebecca Pidgeon,
5:In Kabbalah, as in the Hassidic tradition, you cure the body, but you fix the soul. Curing takes time, but fixing, if you know how to do it, is immediate. ~ Shlomo Carlebach,
6:Kabbalah helps you confront your fears. If a girl borrowed my clothes and never gave them back, and I saw her wearing them months later, I would confront her. ~ Paris Hilton,
7:Kabbalah profoundly influenced the greatest thinkers of history, including Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Mohammed, Pythagoras, Plato, Newton, Leibniz, Shakespeare, and Jung. ~ Yehuda Berg,
8:Everywhere that Torah is studied at night one thread-thin ray appears from that hidden light and flows down upon those absorbed in her. —Kabbalah (13th century) ~ William T Vollmann,
9:The Kabbalah says if we have not fulfilled our condition during one life, we must commence another... until we have acquired the condition that fits our reunion with God. ~ M J Rose,
10:Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of Kabbalah is its long-hidden connection to the Bible.   Kabbalah says the Bible is a complete code. That’s right. It’s a cryptogram. ~ Yehuda Berg,
11:They say you can't study Kabbalah until you are at least 40 years old. You know why? You have to have experienced at least one generation making the same mistakes as the previous one. ~ David Mamet,
12:Most Kabbalists were theorists who were interested only in pure meditation. But there were so-called 'practical Kabbalists' who tried to apply the power of the Kabbalah in everyday life. ~ Neal Stephenson,
13:The Creator desired that the Light be veiled in order to grant existence to the lower beings, which could not otherwise survive in its full presence. ~ Rabbi Moses Luzzatto, General Principles of Kabbalah,
14:In fact the Kabbalah rests upon the exoteric Judeo-Christian tradition. It consists of metaphysics and philosophy, from which can be drawn a mystical way, which is applied and regulated through personal asceticism. ~ Robert Ambelain,
15:In Kabbalah (mystical Judaism) there is a concept called “Tikkun Olam” which alludes to repairing the world. It is my personal belief that true and complete Tikkun Olam cannot and will not occur until there is a balance of ~ Trista Hendren,
16:The fact is that movie stars are as insecure as the rest of us - if not more so. Many live in a luxurious bubble in which their best friends are their trainer, their hairdresser, their publicist, and their Kabbalah instructor. ~ Graydon Carter,
17:Their mystery is: God my only One in them my heart will be worthy. And their mystery is Enough! Enough! Enough! [1741.jpg] -- from Meditation and Kabbalah, by Aryeh Kaplan

~ Rabbi Abraham Abulafia, Their mystery is (from Life of the Future World)
,
18:I do not believe in organized religion, herbal remedies, yoga, Reiki, kabbalah, deep massage, slow food, or chicken soup for the soul. The nostrums of Deepak Chopra and Barbara De Angelis cannot rescue people like me. I believe in crazyass passion. ~ Rinker Buck,
19:The Hebrew Kabbalah, the Chinese Book of Changes, the Tarot, The Egyptian & Tibetan Books of the Dead—should not be regarded as primitive & unsuccessful attempts at ‘science,’ but as attempts to express the depths of ‘lunar’ knowledge in their own terms. ~ Colin Wilson,
20:My life is a series of Hollywood orgies and Kabbalah center brunches with the cast of Friends. At least that's what my handlers tell me. I'm actually too valuable to live my own life and spend most of my days in a vegetable crisper to remain fake news anchor fresh. ~ Jon Stewart,
21:The idea of fixing of healing is an important part of any genuine spiritual approach. Kabbalah is very much about this idea of fixing of things that have been damaged. From a Buddhist point of view, things have been damaged because ignorance has intoxicated the mind. ~ Richard Gere,
22:The Kabbalah describes angels as bundles of light, meaning intelligence, consciousness. Kabbalists believe that above every blade of grass is an angel crying "Grow! Grow!" ... I believe that above the entire human race is one super-angel, crying "Evolve! Evolve!" ~ Steven Pressfield,
23:People don't know what Kabbalah is, and so they jump to conclusions. For me, studying Kabbalah is studying - is just - is asking questions. And I encourage all of my children to be that way, and I think people don't understand that. And so they make assumptions and they judge. ~ Madonna Ciccone,
24:But Kabbalah teaches that nothing we see is a coincidence. Everything—particularly a negative event—has a reason and a purpose. Moreover, on the spiritual level everything we see is a mirror in which we ourselves are reflected. An angry stranger expresses something about our own anger and rage. ~ Michael Berg,
25:Madonna remains the most visible performer on the planet, as well as one of the wealthiest, but would anyone seriously say that artistic self-development is her primary motivating principle? She is too busy with Kabbalah, fashion merchandising, adoption melodramas, the gym, and ill-starred horseback riding to study art. ~ Camille Paglia,
26:Suggestions for further reading Karen Armstrong, Jerusalem; Jorge Luis Borges, Ficciones; Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha; Deepak Chopra, God: A Story of Revelation; Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet; Lawrence Kushner, Kabbalah: A Love Story; C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity; Krista Tippett, Speaking of Faith; Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now ~ Paulo Coelho,
27:There's an answer to every question even if it's elusive. The Kabbalah tells us that there's a level of our souls where we all connect to all the world's accumulated knowledge. Jung agreed, just used different words and called it the collective unconscious. It manifests itself in an inner voice we all can hear if we listen deeply enough. ~ M J Rose,
28:The chief mystical text of Kabbalah, the Zohar, says that Malkhut is "the way to that great and powerful tree... 'If one does not enter through this gate, one cannot gain entry to the worlds,' the worlds of the sefirot. As we climb the Tree of Life-from the bottom to the top-we begin with Malkhut, the Mother.
   ~ Elizabeth Clare Prophet, Kabbalah: Key To Your Inner Power,
29:I've studied Kabbalah, as you know, for many years, so there are a lot of things I do that one would associate with practising Judaism. I hear the Torah every Saturday. I observe Shabbat. I say certain prayers. My son was bar mitzvahed. So this appears like I'm Jewish, but these rituals are connected to what I describe as the Tree of Life consciousness and have more to do with the idea of being an Israelite, not Jewish. ~ Madonna Ciccone,
30:Zohar-kabbalah is heresy of the most pernicious kind. Yet it is a fact that this kind of mystic pantheism exercises a curious appeal to very clever people whose customary approach to thought is soberly rational. By a remarkable paradox, the current of speculation which was to carry Spinoza out of Judaism brought him to pantheism too, so that he was the end-product both of the rationalism of Maimonides and the anti-rationalism of his opponents. ~ Paul Johnson,
31:There is an idea in Kabbalah that the creation of the world is created through space. God is an ever present Being, and in order for anything outside of Him to exist, like this world for example, there needs to be what's called a TumTum[a], or a withdrawal of Godly-like. And that withdrawal happens not by connection but actually by separation. Conflict. And in the gap of that conflict is where the world is situated. That's where the world is created and lived. ~ Matisyahu,
32:Alchemy and Kabbalah are later developments in my thinking. I think the primary interest has been the relationship of magic and mystery to logic and understanding. Those are the primary driving forces of my life. I have this ability, for some reason, to be able to hold both the Magical MysteryTour we're on in conjunction with the logical rigor of understanding theoretical physics, which makes me kind of a rare bird, because usually you're one or the other. ~ Fred Alan Wolf,
33:The Gathering

According to the Kabbalah, in the beginning everything was God. When God contracted to make room for creation, spiritual energy filled the void. The energy poured into vessels which strained to hold the great power. The vessels shattered, sending countless shards, bits of the glowing matter, into the vastness of the universe.

These scattered bits of divine light must be collected. When the task is done the forces of the dark will be vanquished and the world will be healed. ~ Leonard Nimoy,
34:However, the breath which is from the second one is a holy tabernacle in the heart. One ascends with the Unique Name to the sky to depict with Unifications the relationship between everything that is difficult in this science of pronunciation. It alone is life in the Name. It is remembered and sealed in the Book of Life to make the individual live with passion which enlightens constantly, when every thought, every soul is concentrated on it. [1741.jpg] -- from Meditation and Kabbalah, by Aryeh Kaplan

~ Rabbi Abraham Abulafia, A Holy Tabernacle in the Heart (from Life of the Future World)
,
35:Everyone is searching for something. Some people pursue security, others pleasure or power. Yet others look for dreams, or they know not what. There are, however, those who know what they seek but cannot find it in the natural world. For these searchers many clues have been laid out by those who have gone before. The traces are everywhere, although only those with eyes to see or ears to hear perceive them. When the significance of these signs is seriously acted upon, Providence opens a door out of the natural into the supernatural to reveal a ladder from the transient to the Eternal. He who dares the ascent enters the Way of Kabbalah. ~ Z ev Ben Shimon Halevi,

   ~ Z'ev Ben Shimon Halevi, The Way Of Kabbalah,
37:being attached to any one philosophy or religion
dwelling on moot differences and wanting to fit in
despite the path all are led Home in time
following an alternative pathway is certainly no crime
Krishna, Buddha, Allah or Zohar Kabbalah
devoted nonviolently, one is led to Nirvana
Hindu Sages, Zen Masters or Christian Mystics
many tongues, but identical truth spoken from their lips
mentioning Self or no-self or God is Father or Mother
according to their culture emphasizing one method or another
allness vs. nothingness, meditation vs. prayer
devotion in practice is all you should care
when Truth reveals itself you're beyond all conception
then not a single man-made word will hold any traction ~ Jarett Sabirsh,
38:means. Kabbalah teaches that we are in this world to transform desire to receive for the self alone into desire to receive for the purpose of sharing, and thereby to achieve oneness with the Creator. Anything negative that happens in this world, whether to an individual or to humanity as a whole, is a manifestation of self-centered desire. The more we are connected to the desire to receive for ourselves, the greater our disconnection from the Light. Self-serving desire is the single barrier that separates us from the Creator. It is the great challenge that we face in our journey of transformation. It is the mountain we must climb and the ocean we must cross. It may surprise you to learn that a positive outcome to this journey is guaranteed. In ~ Michael Berg,
39:Peshat is the plain sense reading. It looks to the surface meaning of the text, drawing on knowledge of word meanings, grammar, syntax, context, cognate Semitic languages, archaeology, and history. Remez is the allegorical, or symbolic, reading. It looks for parallels between the scriptural text and more abstract concepts. This kind of reading sees biblical characters, events, and literary compositions as standing for other truths. Derash is the inquiring or interpretive reading. It looks for further layers of meaning. Midrash, the Jewish tradition of interpreting the scripture through creative storytelling, derives from this way of reading. Sod is the mystical reading. It looks at the biblical text as a symbolic code, which with piety and effort will yield hidden wisdom and personal connection with the Divine. The Jewish mystical tradition known as Kabbalah relies on complex symbolic interpretation of each individual letter of the biblical text. ~ Anonymous,
40:Who could accomplish what you've accomplished in establishing under the Throne of Glory a level for all who were righteous in spirit? This is the range of pure soul gathered in the bond of all that's vital. For those who've worked to exhaustion -- this is the place of their strength's renewal, where the weary will find repose; these are the children of calm, of pleasure that knows no bound in the mind: this is the World to Come, a place of position and vision for souls that gaze into the mirrors of the palace's servants, before the Lord to see and be seen. They dwell in the halls of the king, and stand alongside his table taking delight in the sweetness of intellect's fruit which offers them majesty's savor. This is the rest and inheritance that knows no bounds in its goodness and beauty, flowing with milk and honey; this is its fruit and deliverance.

41:I have just initiated a new public field of research which I call: Abrahamology. It is the same discipline that I have been working on, however, this is the first time I am announcing the existence of this platform for the large amount of information and body of knowledge that I was able to generate so far. My motivation is driven by it and for eventually making this theoretical construct stand alongside other disciplines of research, however, using an Islamic (i.e., Strict & Uncompromising Abrahamic Orthodoxy) lens of interpretation. To establish it as a genuine field of study is therefore the path which will mark my future endeavors while presenting, advancing, scrutinizing and validating my assertions. There are no tools of Gematria, Philosophy, Kabbalah, Shamanism, Esotery, Gnosticism, Proselytization, or Synchronicity used, but rather the methods of inquiry which are found in Observation, Useful Knowledge, Debates, Discussions, Mathematics, Alternative (alongside Academia), Science and Reason are those which are utilized. ~ Ibrahim Ibrahim,
42:This fear of dying would haunt me for the next forty years. It was an anguish that drove me to travel the world studying religions, magic, esotericism, alchemy, and the Kabbalah. It drove me to frequent initiatory groups, to meditate in the style of numerous schools, to seek out teachers, and in short wherever I went to search without limits for something that might console me in light of my transient existence. If I did not conquer death how could I live, create, love, prosper? I felt separated not only from the world but also from life. Those who thought they knew me only knew the makeup on a corpse. During those excruciating years, all the works I accomplished, as well as all my love affairs, were anesthetics to help me bear the anguish that gnawed at my soul. But in the depths of my being, in a hazy kind of way, I knew that this state of permanent agony was a disease that I had to cure by becoming my own therapist. At its heart, this was not about finding a magic potion to keep me from dying, but above all about learning to die with happiness. ~ Alejandro Jodorowsky,
43:You are wise, and wisdom is a fountain and source of life welling up from within you, and men are too coarse to know you. You are wise, and prime to all that's primeval, as though you were wisdom's tutor. You are wise, but your wisdom wasn't acquired and didn't derive from another. You are wise, and your wisdom gave rise to an endless desire in the world as within an artist or worker -- to bring out the stream of existence from Nothing, like light flowing from sight's extension -- drawing from the source of that light without vessel, giving it shape without tools, hewing and carving, refining and making it pure: He called to Nothing -- which split; to existence -- pitched like a tent; to the world -- as it spread beneath sky. With desire's span He established the heavens, as His hand coupled the tent of the planets with loops of skill, weaving creation's pavilions, the links of His will reaching the lowest rung of creation -- the curtain at the outermost edge of the spheres... [2610.jpg] -- from The Poetry of Kabbalah: Mystical Verse from the Jewish Tradition, Edited by Peter Cole

44:1 May the Name send its hidden radiance to open the gates of deliverance to His servants -- and shine in their hearts, which now are shut in silent darkness. May the great King be moved to act in perfection and righteousness -- to open the gates of wisdom for us and waken the love of old, the love of ancient days. 2 By the power of the hidden name I-Am-That-I-Am, and by the dew of Desire and Blessing, the dead will live again.... 3 I-am is the power of your Name in concealment, and one who knows its mystery dwells in eternity's instant. Over the world, it pours forth abundance and favor, and on it all worlds hang, like grapes in a cluster. Send the dew of blessing, the dew of grace; renew my dispensation, and grant me length of days. Bring light to my eyes with your teaching, and let not the husks that surround your hosts obstruct me. May Heaven and Adam's children judge me with mercy. Sustain me with their strength and fortune -- but do not leave me in need of the gifts of men.

45:For Hindus, banyan trees are sacred. For Buddhists, bodhi trees; for the Arabs, certain date palms. To be stalwart in a ‘tree-like’ way was to approach goodness, according to Confucius. The Normans built chapels in the trunks of yew trees. Many other cultures attached religious significance to particular trees and groves and forests. Adonis was born of a tree. Daphne turned into one. George Washington confessed to cutting one down and the United States, as a result, was all but immaculately conceived. The tree is the symbol of the male organ and of the female body. The Hebrew kabbalah depicts Creation in the form of a tree. In Genesis, a tree holds the key to immortal life, and it is to the branches and fruit of an olive tree that God’s people are likened in both the Old and New Testaments. To celebrate the birth of Christ his followers place trees in their sitting rooms and palm fronds, a symbol of victory, commemorate his entering Jerusalem. A child noted by Freud had fantasies of wounding a tree that represented his mother. The immortal swagman of Australia sat beneath a coolabah tree. In hundreds of Australian towns the war dead are honoured by avenues of trees. ~ Don Watson,
46:From above to below, the sefirot depict the drama of emanation, the transition from Ein Sof to creation. In the words of Azriel of Gerona, "They constitute the process by which all things come into being and pass away." From below to above, the sefirot constitute a ladder of ascent back to the One. The union of Tif'eret and Shekhinah gives birth to the human soul, and the mystical journey begins with the awareness of this spiritual fact of life. Shekhinah is the opening to the divine: "One who enters must enter through this gate." Once inside, the sefirot are no longer an abstract theological system; they become a map of consciousness. The mystic climbs and probes, discovering dimensions of being. Spiritual and psychological wholeness is achieved by meditating on the qualities of each sefirah, by imitating and integrating the attributes of God. "When you cleave to the sefirot, the divine holy spirit enters into you, into every sensation and every movement." But the path is not easy. Divine will can be harsh: Abraham was commanded to sacrifice Isaac in order to balance love with rigor. From the Other Side, demonic forces threaten and seduce. [The demonic is rooted in the divine]. Contemplatively and psychologically, evil must be encountered, not evaded. By knowing and withstanding the dark underside of wisdom, the spiritual seeker is refined.~ Daniel C Matt, The Essential Kabbalah, 10,
47:It is never too late As people begin to learn the principles of Kabbalah, they often feel that they have done too many bad things in their lives to be able to transform and bond with the Creator. In fact, this is what they want to believe. It frees them from accepting the need for positive change. It allows them to abdicate the responsibility for transformation, which is nothing less than the true purpose of our lives. Recognizing this process is one of Kabbalah’s most profound psychological insights. It calls attention to the fact that apparent self-loathing is really just egotism with a reverse spin. The spark of the Creator is always within us, and it is always pure. If you take a penny and hold it up in front of your eye in just the right way, you can easily block out the sun. But is the penny bigger or more powerful than the sun just because it can hide the sun’s light? The penny does not extinguish the sun, but only conceals it. In the same way, our negative actions only conceal the Light within us—but we may begin to feel that the Light has gone out forever. No darkness that we bring upon ourselves, however, is greater than the Light of the Creator that is at our core. As long as we are alive, we have this divine Light within us, burning as brightly as on the day we were born. No matter how deeply hidden, the Light remains there waiting for us to reveal it. And it is never too late. Higher ~ Michael Berg,
48:Where, Lord, will I find you: your place is high and obscured. And where won't I find you: your glory fills the world. You dwell deep within -- you've fixed the ends of creation. You stand, a tower for the near, refuge to those far off. You've lain above the Ark, here, yet live in the highest heavens. Exalted among your hosts, although beyond their hymns -- no heavenly sphere could ever contain you, let alone a chamber within. In being home above them on an exalted throne, you are closer to them than their breath and skin. Their mouths bear witness for them that you alone gave them form. Your kingdom's burden in theirs; who wouldn't fear you? And who could fail to search for you -- who sends down food when it is due? I sought your nearness. With all my heart I called you. And in my going out to meet you, I found you coming toward me, as in the wonders of your might and holy works I saw you. Who would say he hasn't seen your glory as the heavens' hordes declare their awe of you without a sound being heard? But could the Lord, in truth, dwell in men on earth? How would men you made from the dust and clay fathom your presence there, enthroned upon their praise? The creatures hovering over the world praise your wonders -- your throne borne high above their heads, as you beat all forever.

50:The belief in the magical power of language is not unusual, both in mystical
and academic literature. The Kabbalists -- Jewish mystics of Spain and
Palestine -- believed that super-normal insight and power could be derived from
properly combining the letters of the Divine Name. For example, Abu Aharon, an
early Kabbalist who emigrated from Baghdad to Italy, was said to perform
miracles through the power of the Sacred Names."
"What kind of power are we talking about here?"
"Most Kabbalists were theorists who were interested only in pure meditation.
But there were so-called 'practical Kabbalists' who tried to apply the power of
the Kabbalah in everyday life."
"In other words, sorcerers."
"Yes. These practical Kabbalists used a so-called 'archangelic alphabet,'
derived from first-century Greek and Aramaic theurgic alphabets, which resembled
cuneiform. The Kabbalists referred to this alphabet as 'eye writing,' because
the letters were composed of lines and small circles, which resembled eyes."
"Ones and zeroes."
"Some Kabbalists divided up the letters of the alphabet according to where they
were produced inside the mouth."
"Okay. So as we would think of it, they were drawing a connection between the
printed letter on the page and the neural connections that had to be invoked in
order to pronounce it."
"Yes. By analyzing the spelling of various words, they were able to draw what
they thought were profound conclusions about their true, inner meaning and
significance. ~ Neal Stephenson,
51:The roots of Campanella’s “Solar City” (and the District of Columbia) can be found in deeper occult parallels within the literature formulated by hermetical philosophers Giovanni Pico della Mirandola and Marsilio Ficino in Renaissance Florence; both prophetically predicting the restoration of the Egyptian solar religion as the correct political theology of the planet and itself the model for a “New World” civil religion.  In another words they believed the Abrahamic solar faiths of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam would ultimately be exposed as substituted forms of Egyptian sun worship with in “New World” - the United States. It would be this “New World” that would midwife civilization from the waning Piscean Age into the “Masonic” Aquarian Age, a new age of the holy spirit. Simon Greenleaf's Druids and Campanella's Solarians are the de-facto “mediating” Joachimite order through which heavenly signs are mediated by a Sun Priest - an executive or President - who frames policy based upon his knowledge of the correspondences between science (i.e. Egyptian natural religion), grades of being, and heavenly correspondences. This polity was replicated from 1797 within the General Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons with reference both to Enoch (cf. Webb’s 1797 Monitor) and the priest king Melchizedek of which the Grand Master DeWitt Clinton became the symbolic presiding executive.  This configuration is important to make because it establishes the position of the District of Columbia as a utopian ideal city in relationship to the history of mystical utopias of Sir Thomas More (Utopia, 1516), through Tommaso Campanella, and Sir Francis Bacon (The New Atlantis, 1626) in terms of the “entelechy” or interior dynamic of the occult “magic” or “science” from numinous vitalism of the hermetical Renaissance into the period of modern scientific inquiry.  DeWitt Clinton’s uncle George Clinton (1739 - 1812) resided in the District as the first Vice President to do so.  Thus its empirical utility and its mythological associations with Merkabah Kabbalah in arch and dome symbolism would have born a higher intensity of symbolic resonance than to subsequent generations. ~ Robert W Sullivan IV,
52:The Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel had lived only for God during his childhood in Hungary; his life had been shaped by the disciplines of the Talmud, and he had hoped one day to be initiated into the mysteries of Kabbalah. As a boy, he was taken to Auschwitz and later to Buchenwald. During his first night in the death camp, watching the black smoke coiling to the sky from the crematorium where the bodies of his mother and sister were to be thrown, he knew that the flames had consumed his faith forever. He was in a world which was the objective correlative of the Godless world imagined by Nietzsche. “Never should I forget that nocturnal silence which deprived me, for all eternity, of the desire to live,” he wrote years later. “Never shall I forget these moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust.”33 One day the Gestapo hanged a child. Even the SS were disturbed by the prospect of hanging a young boy in front of thousands of spectators. The child who, Wiesel recalled, had the face of a “sad-eyed angel,” was silent, lividly pale and almost calm as he ascended the gallows. Behind Wiesel, one of the other prisoners asked: “Where is God? Where is He?” It took the child half an hour to die, while the prisoners were forced to look him in the face. The same man asked again: “Where is God now?” And Wiesel heard a voice within him make this answer: “Where is He? Here He is—He is hanging here on this gallows.”34 Dostoevsky had said that the death of a single child could make God unacceptable, but even he, no stranger to inhumanity, had not imagined the death of a child in such circumstances. The horror of Auschwitz is a stark challenge to many of the more conventional ideas of God. The remote God of the philosophers, lost in a transcendent apatheia, becomes intolerable. Many Jews can no longer subscribe to the biblical idea of God who manifests himself in history, who, they say with Wiesel, died in Auschwitz. The idea of a personal God, like one of us writ large, is fraught with difficulty. If this God is omnipotent, he could have prevented the Holocaust. If he was unable to stop it, he is impotent and useless; if he could have stopped it and chose not to, he is a monster. Jews are not the only people who believe that the Holocaust put an end to conventional theology. ~ Karen Armstrong,

   This episode links up with the inner story of mankind, its spiritual history. The growing or evolving consciousness of man was not only an outgoing and widening movement: it was also a heightening, an ascent into ranges that are not normally perceived, towards summits of our true reality. We have spoken of the Grco-Roman culture as the source and foundation of European civilisation; but apart from that there was a secret vein of life that truly vivified it, led it by an occult but constant influence along channels and achievements that are meant to serve the final goal and purpose. The Mysteries prevalent and practised in Greece itself and Crete and the occult rites of Egyptian priests, the tradition of a secret knowledge and discipline found in the Kabbalah, the legendary worship of gods and goddesses sometimes confused, sometimes identified with Nature forcesall point to the existence of a line of culture which is known in India as Yoga. If all other culture means knowledge, Yoga is the knowledge of knowledge. As the Upanishad says, there are two categories of knowledge, the superior and-the inferior. The development of the mind and life and body belongs to the domain of Inferior Knowledge: the development of the soul, the discovery of the Spirit means the Superior Knowledge.
   This knowledge remained at the outset scattered, hidden, confined to a few, a company of adepts: it had almost no direct contact with the main current of life. Its religious aspect too was so altered and popularised as to represent and serve the secular life. The systematisation and propagation of that knowledgeat least the aspiration for that knowledgewas attempted on an effective scale in the Hebrew Old Testament. But then a good amount of externalities, of the Inferior Knowledge was mixed up with the inner urge and the soul perception. The Christ with his New Testament came precisely with the mission of cleaning the Augean stables, in place of the dross and coverings, the false and deformed godheads, to instal something of the purest ray of the inner consciousness, the unalloyed urge of the soul, the demand of our spiritual personality. The Church sought to build up society on that basis, attempting a fusion of the spiritual and the temporal power, so that instead of a profane secular world, a mundane or worldly world, there maybe established God's own world, the City of God.

   English version by Peter Cole Original Language Hebrew 1 May the Name send its hidden radiance to open the gates of deliverance to His servants -- and shine in their hearts, which now are shut in silent darkness. May the great King be moved to act in perfection and righteousness -- to open the gates of wisdom for us and waken the love of old, the love of ancient days. 2 By the power of the hidden name I-Am-That-I-Am, and by the dew of Desire and Blessing, the dead will live again.... 3 I-am is the power of your Name in concealment, and one who knows its mystery dwells in eternity's instant. Over the world, it pours forth abundance and favor, and on it all worlds hang, like grapes in a cluster. Send the dew of blessing, the dew of grace; renew my dispensation, and grant me length of days. Bring light to my eyes with your teaching, and let not the husks that surround your hosts obstruct me. May Heaven and Adam's children judge me with mercy. Sustain me with their strength and fortune -- but do not leave me in need of the gifts of men.

   English version by Peter Cole Original Language Hebrew Where, Lord, will I find you: your place is high and obscured. And where won't I find you: your glory fills the world. You dwell deep within -- you've fixed the ends of creation. You stand, a tower for the near, refuge to those far off. You've lain above the Ark, here, yet live in the highest heavens. Exalted among your hosts, although beyond their hymns -- no heavenly sphere could ever contain you, let alone a chamber within. In being home above them on an exalted throne, you are closer to them than their breath and skin. Their mouths bear witness for them that you alone gave them form. Your kingdom's burden in theirs; who wouldn't fear you? And who could fail to search for you -- who sends down food when it is due? I sought your nearness. With all my heart I called you. And in my going out to meet you, I found you coming toward me, as in the wonders of your might and holy works I saw you. Who would say he hasn't seen your glory as the heavens' hordes declare their awe of you without a sound being heard? But could the Lord, in truth, dwell in men on earth? How would men you made from the dust and clay fathom your presence there, enthroned upon their praise? The creatures hovering over the world praise your wonders -- your throne borne high above their heads, as you beat all forever.

This is the range of pure soul gathered in the bond of all that's vital. For those who've worked to exhaustion -- this is the place of their strength's renewal, where the weary will find repose; these are the children of calm, of pleasure that knows no bound in the mind: this is the World to Come, a place of position and vision for souls that gaze into the mirrors of the palace's servants, before the Lord to see and be seen. They dwell in the halls of the king, and stand alongside his table taking delight in the sweetness of intellect's fruit which offers them majesty's savor. This is the rest and inheritance that knows no bounds in its goodness and beauty, flowing with milk and honey; this is its fruit and deliverance.

1.sig - You are wise (from From Kingdoms Crown), #unset, #Arthur C Clarke, #Fiction
   English version by Peter Cole Original Language Hebrew You are wise, and wisdom is a fountain and source of life welling up from within you, and men are too coarse to know you. You are wise, and prime to all that's primeval, as though you were wisdom's tutor. You are wise, but your wisdom wasn't acquired and didn't derive from another. You are wise, and your wisdom gave rise to an endless desire in the world as within an artist or worker -- to bring out the stream of existence from Nothing, like light flowing from sight's extension -- drawing from the source of that light without vessel, giving it shape without tools, hewing and carving, refining and making it pure: He called to Nothing -- which split; to existence -- pitched like a tent; to the world -- as it spread beneath sky. With desire's span He established the heavens, as His hand coupled the tent of the planets with loops of skill, weaving creation's pavilions, the links of His will reaching the lowest rung of creation -- the curtain at the outermost edge of the spheres...
