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

Surrender to Life & the Word, no amount of psychic-babblle or "energy work" will change what others easily do without our "powers and/or abilities" .
Do what you want to do with magick without magick and life will teach you magick through Work.

« on: August 17, 2010, 09:55:21 AM »Does the numbering of the statements in the Emerald Tablet correspond to the numbers in Quabbalah?


The Emerald Tablet does relate to the Pater Noster and the KBLH is defined largely by the original prayer.The Pater Noster or Our Father Lord's Prayer was a Hebrew Prayer modified by Christ and taught in Aramaic with a non gender specific term for Godhead at the Sermon on the Mount so it occurs in the Torah and in the NT in a few places.

( Abwûn)"Oh Thou, from whom the breath of life comes,

The naming of the sephiroth comes from a few sources of sacred text including from;
1 Chronicles 29:11 Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the POWER (GEBURAH), and the GLORY(TIFERET), and the VICTORY(NETZAH), and the MAJESTY(HOD): for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the KINGDOM kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as HEAD (KETER) above all.
&
Exodus 31:3 And I have filled him with the spirit of God (KETER), in WISDOM (CHOKMA), and in UNDERSTANDING (BINAH), and in KNOWLEDGE (DAAT)..

Each sphere corresponds to a place on the human energy body and an elemental nature IMHO ;

KETER means crown and implies as in Godhead; LUX HEAVEN/Head
MALKUT the dominion or kingdom; TETRAPOLAR EARTH/right hip [and right leg]

BINAH means  understanding, Abba; AMORIS /supernal over right shoulder
CHOKMAH means wisdom,Ama;AKASHA/supernal over left shoulder

GEBURAH means power; FIRE/right shoulder [and right arm]
CHESED means glory ;WATER/ left shoulder [and left arm]

HOD means majesty;EARTH/right hip[and right leg]
NETZA means victory;AIR/left hip[and left leg]

TIFERET means beauty; AKASHA MOON/
YESOD means foundation;AMORIS SUN/

DAAT means knowledge and implies hidden knowledge; core of moonstone/brow centre

The Emerald Tablet with possible correspondences to Kaballah
 1. Tis true without lying, certain most true.[Gedulah]
 2. That which is below
     is like that which is above
     that which is above
     is like  that which is below
     to do the miracles of one only thing.(Keter)
 3. And as all things have been arose from one(Tetrapolar Earth Malkut)
     by the mediation of one: so all things have their birth(Malkut)
     from this one thing by adaptation.[all everything=Chol]
 4. The Sun is its father(Binah & Yesod)
     the moon its mother,(Chokma & Tiferet)
 5. the wind (Air =Netza)
     hath carried it in its belly, the earth(Hod)
     its nurse(Tiferet & Binah).
 6. The father of all perfection(Keter)
     in the whole world  is here.(Malkut)
 7. Its force or power(Geburah)
     is entire if it be converted into earth (Hod & Malkut).
 7a. Separate thou the earth from the fire (Geburah),
     the subtle from the gross sweetly (Tiferet)
     with great industry(Yesod).
 8. It ascends from the earth (Malkut)
     to the heaven (Keter)
     again it descends to the earth (Hod & Malkut)
     and receives the force  (Geburah)
     of things superior(Yesod)
     and inferior(Tiferet,).
9. By this means ye shall have the glory(Chesed)
    of the whole world(Malkut)
    thereby all obscurity(Daat )
    shall fly (Netza)
    from you.
10. Its force (Geburah)
      is above all force. (Geburah)
      for it vanquishes (victory=Netza)
      every subtle thing (Tiferet)
      and penetrates every solid thing.(Yesod)
11a. So was the world created.(Malkut)
12. From this are and do come admirable adaptations (foundation=Yesod)
      whereof the means is here in this.
13. Hence I am called Hermes Trismegist, having the three parts of the  
      philosophy of the whole world.(Malkut)
14. That which I have said of the operation of the Sun (Binah & Yesod)
      is accomplished and ended. (Keter is attained)

I don't really agree with some of the attributions in the above post. Tiferet is the sun, Yesod is the moon. Not the other way around. Also "Tetrapolar Earth Malkut" and just "Malkut" are the same thing. And wouldn't "All things arose from one" be attributed to Keter, not Malkut?
That last section is prefaced IMHO it is not fact it is my own exegesis at this time.Certainly you could attribute beauty to the sun and most do. But I see beauty and glory  and compassion as Divine Feminine attributes and therefore Moon. Keter is above things do not rise from it . It is the divine emanation and Malkut is the dominion the Earth below which is considered tetrapolar in nature . Because Malkut shines back the sphere above it can be considered by some to be akashic Moon , Ether and Holy Spirit. Those make sense . But it is the naming seems out of place in my mind. There are basal levels of elements and higher vibrations of these. For example Fire and Sun , Water and Moon, I distinguish two earth energies on the tree. I don't see a reason to nominate planets to the Tree of Life but qualities of Earth, Moon and Sun make sense to me.
The mystic will receive their own KBLH .

I find instead that the Tree of Life is not complete without the stones, the chakras, the sepiroth and Kundalini channels on the spine.

The energy centres can be observed clairvoyantly ; sepiroth are tiny minor chakras which can be seen on the joints of shoulders, hips and along the spine. There are energy centres on the sine , the joints and supernal and infernal energy centres as well.

Chakras are the size of a mandarin to grapefruit depending on the size and age of the physical body.Sepiroth are spherical too but they are the size of a grape to a mandarin. KBLH is Jewish but the Tree of Life and the Energy Body are universal. The magician needs to understand the beauty of Jewish Mysticism and the pragmatic systems of Yoga and Tao in order to successfully use the Tree of Life to scaffold and attend Samadhi/Kether at will.

The Emerald Tablet is a recipe to complete three Alchemical works including the Opus Minor the Little Work of the Moon to develop Akasha in the energy body channels and to control Akasha, and the Magnum Opus the Great Work to develop . These are the works of the Earth, Sun and Moon.Each of these major works have stages including the
They originally described four stages;

Melanosis (Blackening)Opus Nigredo

The basic Hermetic recipe alluded to in the Emerald Tablet is to purge Earth energies , flush out residual Earth with Water energies, Raise more Fire to heat the remaining energy , the air heated with fire will lift the magician out of the body and improve their clairvoyance and clairaudience so that they can attain Samadhi/Kether in Unio Mystica for a time. That is the completion of the Great Work but the path is infinite and eternal.

The Emerald Tablet does not need KBLH , it is an alternate methodology. However, braiding the Emerald Tablet , Hermetic Magick , Vedic /Hindu Chakras & Kundalini , energy work, meditative trance, and Kaballah will manifest and facilitate the scaffolding required for Ascension Alchemy.

Kaballah is the Stairway to Heaven, Jacob's Ladder and the Tree of Life. It is a scaffolding but it is incomplete .

Vedic literature is brilliant concerning chakras, kundalini and asana to attain meditative trance and visions but it is incomplete.

Contemporary energy work and astral projection is incomplete.

But by a holistic approach braiding these and the practices that one will, then the magician can engage fully in the legacy of the Godhead which is Ascension Alchemy.

It does not matter how the ladder is used if it gets you back to Kether. And the Emerald Tablet makes a brilliant scaffolding to attain Unio Mystica with or without the KBLH.Even at the inception some argue to start at Kether others start at Malkuth.

But the Tree of Life is an inductive and deductive path.Some are confident that the spheres must be walked in a specific order others know that the universe will provide the curriculum and that they will ascribe that experience to a specific sphere and know where they have been lead.

Some only read the words, some contemplate upon them, some sit in meditative trance and attain visions concerning the path of KBLH,  some project into their energy body tree and out from the spheres to provide an exegesis, some know it so intimately that they reach a hand out to teach others how to climb it.KBLH mean received knowledge. It is the end goal of Kether/Samadha that we seek but it is what we learn on the way in our pathworking that integrates into our physical lives causing a change in our demeanour. 

And some say that we have to walk it twice, others 3 times, others say once for each level and others know that the path is eternal and infinite...

I find that the Jewish wisdoms of KBLH are the best that the world has had to offer but these are incomplete . It can not be ignored that the Tree began before Judaism existed and it is universal mapping for occult pathworking to attain esoteric wisdoms. And it should not be ignored that the Tree is about the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine and the neither gendered Divine Sentient Light it would be sad to hop on one leg up the right side only.

I would like SKS to explain to me about the prescribed paths of Judaic KBLH . What I mean by this is the; who, what, when, where, why and how concerning the connections between the spheres.

To get back to the OT ; what about the numbering of the steps and their relation to the Emerald Tablet . Who can explain the 22 paths of Netivot, please ? Each of 22 paths corresponds to a Hebrew letter and a Tarot card, I get that much. But I would like to learn a lot more about the ordering and if it does corresponds to the Emerald Tablet in it enumeration.I found this link http://cosmicnavigator.com/about/kabbalah/find-your-path-through-kabbalah
What do you think about it, does that make sense ? Is it traditional in its approach?

0."null" "Tis true without lying,"
Quote
Path #0 - The Threshold of Nothingness - The Way of Potential This path leads from the CROWN, the threshold to the endless Light, to WISDOM.It opens new ways of thinking, stimulating the qualities of innovation, unpredictability, change and innocence. It is the path of the Fool, the joker who survives the challenges of life and his own recklessness by laughing at it all. The number zero suggests the state of mind one should cultivate on this particular path-an attitude of No Fear because there is "zero" out there anyway. Why worry, why be afraid if all is nothingness? Here we find the path of the initiator, the innovator and inventor; the path of the individual who does things in unique ways. It is the path of freedom.Tarot Card:The FOOL  rules the path because only a fool would think of embarking on the indefinable journey from Crown to Wisdom. But it is because of Fools that we enjoy all the spiritual technologies available to us today. The Fool is the shape shifter who can change into any card he or she chooses. That is why it is the only Major Arcana (or trump of the Tarot) that has survived in modern playing cards as the joker.Challenges: Too erratic, unpredictable, irresponsible, a rebel without a cause. Destructive with no solution, foolish. Weirdness, madness, chaotic.
0.The Fool begins the Journey at rest , reading the Tablet

1."certain most true."
Quote
Hebrew Letter: א Aleph, the first of the Hebrew letters, represents absolute potential. In Kabbalah, Aleph rules the element of air-the Prana or the Holy Ghost. It is the breath, the potential for all that is. But the danger of "hot air"-people who talk and talk and never translate that air into action-can resonate here as well. Aleph is said to have all the letters embedded in it. It serves as the master program for the other 21 archetypal energies. In Hebrew, Aleph also means "champion," indicating that the Fool is the champion of all the cards. It also translates to "ox" or "plow," that which carries all the rest of the letters and readies the soil-or the way-for all that follow.Path #1 - The Path of the Trickster - The Way of Magic.This path connects the bright nothingness of the CROWN with the materializing sphere of UNDERSTANDING. It demands that you manifest your will as well as the will of others. Think of the magician who pulls a dove out of thin air. It is the path of mind over matter, the path of the Magician and the master Alchemist. Anyone who puts two people or projects together and then collects a finder's fee-the writer, the negotiator and the orator-walks on this road. The number one symbolizes the energy of the initiator and leadership. Logic rules here in the guise of a double-edged sword that can either destroy or hone anything to a greater clarity of understanding. On this path, you create magic if you employ the sword in the service of the Light. Use your words wisely. They wield enormous power.Card: The MAGICIAN represents the ability in each of us to create what we need and draw closer to the One. The magician is master of the four elements. He backs up his words (air) with action (fire), and he does what he feels (water) is right to achieve his material goal (earth). The magician's symbol is infinity represented by the number 8.Challenges: Trickery, lies and deception. Abusing magic and power for your own selfish needs. Walking in the shadow, susceptible to darkness. Remember: the sphere of Understanding is an arduous energy that teaches discipline and responsibility.
1.The Magician was the fool who believed the lies but now seeks esoteric truths.

2."That which is below is like that which is above"
Quote
Hebrew Letter: ב Bet means house or home in Hebrew. It suggests that we must find a home or a structure for all our thoughts. Words contain great creative power both good and bad. Declaring, "I can't make it" will be manifested in reality as easily as "I will succeed." Use words with reverence. It is not a coincidence that the Torah, one the channels of Light into our world, begins with the letter Bet. Aleph, path 0, is potential. This path, #1, brings that potential home to Earth.Path #2 - Heart Connections - The Way of Love[/color]This path, the longest on the Tree, leads from the shining will of the CROWN, the source of Light, to the BEAUTY of the heart. It is the path of love and nurturing. The Moon, the seat of the goddess within, rules this road. Here you are called to pay attention to the connection between the mind and the heart. Most people struggle to unify their feelings with their logical thoughts. Memory and the collective archive sleep here, as do motherhood, healing and unconditional love. Path #2 suggests duality and relationship but strictly in the service of others. It evokes giving and an end to selfishness. It is the path of healers, nurses and givers of life.Card: The HIGH PRIESTESS represents the balance between the masculine and feminine energies. She helps us connect to intuitive powers. Also called the Lady of the Archives, she maintains all the records of our lives. The information stored in this database are our memories. Challenges: Moodiness, overly emotional, dependency, codependency, addictions and lack of confidence.
2. Our heart is seeking the way back home from Malkut to Kether
in reunion with Godhead, our heart seeks the love of the heavenly Divine Mother


3."that which is above is like that which is below"
Quote
Hebrew Letter: ג The letter Gimel means a camel-the only beast capable of crossing the desert. It is a highly temperamental animal, but also very loyal. It stores its own water (its own sustenance) inside, which allows it to survive on its own for weeks at a time. It serves as a ship ferrying its cargo across the harsh landscape of the desert. Path #3 - The Path of Womb of Life - The Way of Mother Nature
This path connects WISDOM with UNDERSTANDING, the undifferentiated right hemisphere with the logical left hemisphere of the brain. Venus reigns along this path. It represents fertility and Mother Nature, who provides for all sentient beings. It unites the feminine and masculine mind, tying together the Father of the right pillar with the Mother of the left under the eye of Venus, the queen of marriage and love. It is a doorway, the gate to life, associated with the third eye, intuition and beauty. Creative and artistic people travel this path, but they must remember to create through the union of their imagination with their logical mind. The balance of right and left.
Card: The EMPRESS symbolizes motherliness, femininity and marriage. This alluring entity governs the arts, music, colors and harmony. She is Mother Nature and the untamed wilderness. She provides life, but she can also destroy.Challenges: Overindulgence, vain, too concerned with luxury, comfort and material goods. Susceptible to over-dependence on others. Unpredictable and unreliable.
3. The Divine Womb represents the cosmos the birth of Elohim and also the birth we have on Earth from the body of the mother. We ride our merkabah the divine light vehicle of sacred geometry like the camel, it is our means back to Kether while incarnate.

4. "To do the miracles of one only thing"
Quote
Hebrew Letter: ד  The letter Dalet means "Door," and the door of life is the womb. The energy that connects the supreme Father and Mother. Dalet functions as the vortex through which the potential becomes material.Path #4 - The Path of the Provider of Order - The Way of the Liberator.This path connects WISDOM with BEAUTY. It is the path of civilization, the provider of order. Liberators walk this path, releasing from bondage and then ideally structuring a life that leads to the balance of the heart. The United States, born on the 4th of July, finds itself here. This road builds order based on a courageous conquering of fear and the opening of new frontiers and clearings in the jungle. It is the way of leaders and reformers, soldiers and warriors of Light.
Card: The EMPEROR, the Father who is married to his love the Empress (see path #3), represents liberation from internal or external oppression. He must protect all those who suffer, and he will not hesitate to wage war to accomplish his higher goals.Challenges: Rigid-reasoning, self-righteousness, and an inability to act from the heart. Too macho, too aggressive, susceptible to dogmatism and tyranny.
4. Imho Jesus Christ is the mediator who comes from the Father and reminds us of the love of our Divine Mother. Christ teaches in the Pistis Sophia that we may not become Christed if we do not come through Imma, the Divine Mother

5."And as all things have been arose from one"
Quote
Hebrew Letter: ה  Hey means "window." Just as the eyes are the windows of the soul, this path opens the window to our heart and soul. Through this window, via our liberator within, we glimpse the horizons of infinite possibilities. The road to our "Promised Land." Hey is also an exclamation. "Hey!" you shout when someone pushes you. When you want to draw some attention, you yell, "Hey!" Hey is often used as a symbol of God. It signifies the God within, our higher self that seasons all thoughts and ambitions with heart. Path #5 - The Path of the Spiritual leader - The Way of the Ocean of Wisdom This path links WISDOM with MERCY, the huge sea of expanding grace and compassion. It marks the way of the spiritual master who facilitates our own attachment to the divine. Known as the Ocean of Wisdom, it is an innovative path for those charged with unifying the disparate pieces of the creation. Kindness and unconditional compassion predominate here. This highest path of the right pillar of expansion emphasizes the importance of giving and doing for others. A true connector (in spirituality or business) works solely for the benefit of others. With this mindset, the unifier always receives more than he or she needs.Card: The HIEROPHANT rules internal hearing, what Kabbalah calls "Bat Kol," literally "the daughter of the Voice." The Hierophant is our internal spiritual leader, who communicates with us via our inner voice or intuition. He attempts to connect our higher self with our consciousness and to make us aware of our potential.Challenges: Greed, materialism, and attachment, valuing the earthly plane too much. Vanity and luxury. Take note of the many religious leaders and gurus who have found their heads puffed up with money, power, sex and dominance over their followers.
5. The path of the spiritual leader is to become an avatar through ascension over lifetimes, to become Christed. The Window of our soul to see God is in our eyes; open them. The Daughter of the Voice opens our ears. Male energy Shiva , Sun , Fire brings the magician clairvoyant sight . This subtle energy affects the energy body and triggers the Air the daughter Jyoti to cause the sound to be heard and the magician begins clairaudience. Inhale the sun through the right eye and out the left ear inhale the moon through the left eye and out the right ear. Inhale earth through the left ear and out the right eye , inhale air through the right ear and out the left eye. Breathe up energy and cause the lily to bloom within the brain centre two petals out each ear two out each eye and one back down the throat;to see to hear to evoke.

6.by the mediation of one
Quote
Hebrew Letter: ו Vav means "Nail." Just as nails join two pieces of wood into one, the path of the Ocean of Compassion serves to put things together. In Hebrew, Vav is used as a prefix of union-like in boys "and" girls. It signifies our union with the divine.Path #6 - The Path of Logic in the Service of the Heart - The Way of the Lovers. The Lovers govern this path between UNDERSTANDING and BEAUTY. Like all love affairs, it can create a lasting union if the partners connect to their heart. But when judgment and misunderstandings predominant, it will end in separation and divorce. Anyone who travels this road must use understanding, logic and the power of reasoning in the service of beauty, love and spirituality. Followers of this road must resist the belief that rationality explains all. Writers, communicators and PR experts of all sorts must all remember that they are merely the messengers, not the message.Card: The LOVERS denote the two that are One; the ideal union of all dualities. Represented by the astrological sign Gemini-twins, exactly the same, but of different gender, they wield love as the tool that builds unity.
Challenges: Too logical, too much in their head, unemotional. Lies, theft, and a tendency to use the sword of logic to separate rather than unite. Take care to avoid conveying false or distorted messages.
Christ is the mediator. Christ said "I am the way." Christ was nailed to the cross. Christ is the nail. He teaches the magician to become as one with God in Kether.

7. "So all things have their birth"
Quote
Hebrew Letter: ז Zain stands for both a sword and the male sex organ. They say that the pen is mightier than the sword, but in this case they are one and the same. The sword is the symbol of the powerful intellect, slicing through to the crux of any issue. This letter also translates to penis, the male sex organ. Through loving sexual intercourse, Zain has the potential to foster a perfect union between the masculine and feminine, between 0 and 1, ovum and sperm.Path #7 - The Path of the Vessel of God - The Way of the Child of Waters.This path joins UNDERSTANDING with SEVERITY, a road related to family, home, security and hospitality. Love is not an easy concept to Understand and practice. It demands a great deal of attention, discipline, patience and time, which is precisely the reason this path runs between the two most difficult, most restrictive spheres of the Tree. For most of us, the family stands as our central connection to love. It nourishes all kinds of love: unconditional love of the parents to their children, brotherly love between siblings, romantic love between the spouses and friendly love among cousins. But familial love can and often does strangle, restrict and fence us in. We feel it often with family obligations and the psychological neuroses inherent in many parent-child bonds. The family is protected by the home, in a sense the physical vessel for love. But this notion of family doesn't imply blood ties exclusively. People create loving, functioning families at work, with friends and in many other groups and settings. This road of the protected home is also the path of meditation. Meditation requires stillness, inner quiet and discipline. Its purpose is to help you find the home within.Card: The CHARIOT symbolizes the vehicle humankind can use to reach God. One of the oldest Jewish mystical writings was called "Merkavah" or "The Chariot" (Ezekiel 1:1). The Chariot is code for meditation. In meditation, one reaches God by traveling without movement. In this card, the charioteer wears armor to represent the need for protection and security if one is to undertake this journey. This card also connects to the search for the Holy Grail-our inner divine emotional reservoir.Challenges: Too protective or overly connected to one's roots, "the chosen people" syndrome. Dependency, selfishness, thick emotional walls, overly sensitive.
The child which will be born of the alchemical marriage of the sun and the moon has been concieved. Chariot is the Merkabah/Merkavah it is the divine ascension vehicle of light and sacred geometry which brings us back to the Father. Father is light , the sun , fire and Kether in the Crown.

8."from this one thing by adaptation."
Quote
Hebrew Letter: ח Chet means "Fence" or "Wall" that marks the boundaries of the backyard of the home or even the border of a country. It stems from the shell of the crab of Cancer and the need for protection. In other words, the wall around a city that protects it from invaders.Path #8 - The Path of the Flaming Sword - The Way of Creativity.This path connects MERCY and SEVERITY.[/color] It stands as the ultimate or central connection between the right and left columns of the Tree. This path evokes creativity and romance, the marriage between masculine and feminine energies on the level of the heart. Strength, power, authority and great will guide this connection. It is a path that requires generosity and loyalty. One of the most spiritual of all roads, it often propels a traveler into the center of attention. It is the path of the "star," who bears a great responsibility to shine and radiate divine balance to all. It rules happiness, romance, children and playfulness.Card: STRENGTH symbolizes the power that comes from letting go of the ego and becoming a channel for the pure energy of the One. The card depicts a woman effortlessly opening the mouth of a lion. Her strength derives not from her muscles but from her spiritual will.Challenges: Ego. Remember: it is not your strength or authority you wield but the power of the Light. Arrogance, self-centeredness, domineering, superiority complex (and its flip side, the inferiority complex).
Mother opens the word of God to the people as the woman opens the jaws of the lion on the Strength card. Imho, this is is the Divine Word made flesh from the Holy Spirit through Mary. On the Tree we see the Crown neither gender coming through Divine Mother and Divine Father ; From the Sun and the Moon. Binah and Chokmah, Wisdom & Understanding from Kether to Malkut as the Divine Child The Christ . On the energy body the head is the moon , the chest is the sun, the belly is the earth

9."The Sun is its father"
Quote
Hebrew Letter: ט Tet translates as "Coiled Serpent," the serpent of wisdom and enlightenment. In Hindu tradition, the Kundalini, the energy located at the base of the spine, also means "the coiled serpent." Ideally, this serpent ascends through the spinal cord up to the brain when we attain enlightenment or any connection to God. Both the spinal cord and the heart are ruled by Leo, the astrological sign associated with this path.Path #9 - Path of Purification - The Way of the Keepers of Light.This path unifies MERCY with BEAUTY, a journey for those who live to serve and purify others. It connects the pillar of expansion with the central pillar of moderation. It stores up the radiant Light of God, which must be cherished until all the rest of us wise up and follow along. This path demands dedication and cleansing. It calls you to find your center, avoid excess and function as a wise guide. Another name for this road is "The Heart of Compassion," requiring you to find your inner wealth and share it with others. Pay attention to small details, order and tidiness. Learn and teach humility.Card: The HERMIT symbolizes the pure man. He has cleansed himself of most physical yearnings and seeks to show the way to others who are still chained to the world's mortal coils. The Hermit serves the Light, understanding that to reach the One, humans must dive within and work on their internal world.Challenges: Overly critical as exemplified by the "Inch Worm," which counts the flowers instead of smelling them. Perfectionism, faultfinder, hostility toward life, unemotional, over attention to detail. Losing the forest for the trees.
9. Kundalini is carried in the belly coiled 3.5 times around the spine. The immature nadis become erect in the Throne of God which is the energy centre at the pelvic floor . These form cobras of Kundalini . There are 14 principal nadis but innumerable ones in all. The primary 3 nadis are the main channel flames of ida , pingala and sushumna the sun, moon and earth the fourth is the one we seek the daughter, the princess, flame of air

10."the moon is its mother"
Quote
Hebrew Letter: י Yod means "The sperm of God." It is the smallest of all the Hebrew letters, but its shape serves as the building block for all the others. Yod also means "Hand"-the same hand in which the Hermit holds the Light for everyone else.Path #10 - Path of the Wheel - The Way of Fortune This path leads from MERCY to ETERNITY, a journey for those who rely on luck and usually find it. It connects the two fortunate spheres on the lower (and therefore more practical) half of the pillar of expansion. This road is all about cycles and prophecy. Mercy connects to background and history while Eternity embodies the energy of repetition. By examining the cycles of life, a wise person can foresee the likely events of the future. This road gives birth to the ancient proverb "History repeats itself." But the wheel also brings surprises. Give chance a chance. Good fortune awaits.Card: The WHEEL OF FORTUNE, always turning, represents the ever-changing nature of life. But one point never moves-the center. This path seeks to guide you to that still middle point.Challenges: Excessive behavior, obesity, overly optimistic, blind faith, fatalism and laziness.
10. This is the making of the philosopher's stone. The MoonStone is the energy storage centre of the head.It is water, its core is the reciprocal fire ; shen which provides clairvoyance. The SunStone is the energy storage centre of the chest. It is fire, its core is the reciprocal water;Chi pranic vitality and life force the female sperm. The EarthStone is the belly. It is Earth; its core is Air Ching which provides regeneration energies and power. The womb of any magician is here. The male magician forms a divine child within self and gives birth to it . This forms the ascended angelic consciousness which is eternal and obedient to Godhead looking like the current incarnation but having another name and being independent of the magician.

11."the wind hath carried it "
Quote
Hebrew Letter: כ Kaf means "The palm of the hand." The art of palmistry postulates that a man's fortune is carved on the hand. The letter Kaf suggests that everything you need is right there in your own world. Open yourself to opportunities and allow them to flow into your life.Path #11 - Path of Balance - The Way of Justice This path joins SEVERITY and BEAUTY. It focuses on balance, justice, law, peace and relationships. It is the path of lawyers, courts, contracts, compromises and negotiation. Pay extra attention to your partners and significant others. Judgements concerning issues of the heart arise often, and those on this path must make all sorts of decisions all the time. Judge wisely, with balance, and avoid swings to the extremes. This path also rules beauty, both inside and out. Those on this path often find themselves engaged in creative or artistic pursuits. Find the beauty in harmony.Card: The LADY OF JUSTICE symbolizes the balanced decisions demanded on this route. She holds the scales of justice, but her eyes are blindfolded to prevent her from being influenced by the outer appearance of those she judges. Don't be overly swayed by external beauty. Don't let your eyes deceive your better judgement.Challenges: Superficiality, confusing outer with inner beauty. Blindness to problems or difficulties, indecisiveness, hypocrisy.
With the palms of the hand the magician can carry .  Also the belly is the EarthStone and its core is the reciprocal energy of Wind or Air.

12."in its belly the earth "
Quote
Hebrew Letter: ל Lamed means both to teach and to learn. Hebrew offers no distinction between learning and teaching. A true teacher always learns when he teaches and a true student teaches while she learns. That give and take epitomizes the same balance required to build functioning relationships. Lamed stands precisely in the middle of the Hebrew alphabet, further stressing this road's mandate for equilibrium.Path #12 - Path of Letting Go - The Way of New Perspective This path unites SEVERITY and SPLENDOR. Anyone walking here must learn to surrender to higher forces and trust their psychic intuition. Find the splendor in the hardships of life. It will demand that you relinquish old beliefs and behaviors, sacrifice your ego, and let go and flow with the Tao. New perspectives and ideas abound. Since this path marks the lower and more practical half of the left column, acting on all new information and instincts is also vital. Stay alert to the path's mother lode of psychic energy, telepathy, precognition and ESP.Card: The HANGED MAN symbolizes a need to see the world in a whole new way. The card shows a man hanging upside down from a tree. By examining the world from a radically different vantage point, one discovers all sorts of new ideas, images and perspectives. This card suggests that we kill our Ego, our usual habits, and give ourselves up to higher ideals.Challenges: Dependency and codependency, a tendency to remain stuck in destructive situations and relationships, escapism, gullibility, daydreaming, a problem differentiating between reality and fantasy.
With energy work , meditation and projection; the magician develops and will manifest the core of the earth stone which is the green air energy called Ching. It is the Air we seek to created lift to ascend to Kether in projection. It is Air we need to begin hearing sound; the "daughter of the voice" to hear the angels and the teaching spirits to learn and to teach.With the palms of the hands they can begin to do the Little Work .
13." is its nurse."
Quote
Hebrew Letter: מ Mem means "water." It is one of the three maternal letters along with Aleph and Shin, which correspond to the three elements: water, air and fire. Life started in water. It is the most common element on the surface of our planet. Water flows, resisting nothing, pouring easily around anything that stands in its path.Path #13 - Path of Intimacy - The Way of TransformationThis path links BEAUTY and ETERNITY on a road designed to enhance transformation. Any kind of transformation involves a bit of death and destruction as we clear out the old and plant the new. Every death, however, is followed by a birth, by regeneration. Secrets, investigation, research, intimacy and sexuality call for attention here. This road teaches that nothing lasts forever, not even beauty. It should be respected for its great abilities both to heal and destroy. It teaches the importance of working with and combining other people's talents and money to further a higher aim.Card: The DEATH card does not denote a literal physical death. It symbolizes the need for transformation and change. It signifies the death of a situation or attitude more then the passing of a person. Remember that all death holds the seed of rebirth inside.Challenges: Fear of death, fear of change, fear of intimacy. Hyper-sexuality, jealousy, possessiveness, emotional manipulation and abuse.
The Little Work is the Opus Minor to manifest silver akasha to shine like the moon in the energy body. Do this through drawing breath crown to toes Kether to Malkuth and raising energy toes to Crown Malkuth to Kether. Sitting in sacred space in the light of the full moon in comfortable asana ; attain trance. Begin to seperate the gross elemental energies from the subtle. First purge Earth out the palms , out the belly , mouth, nose and feet energy centres with each breath; exhale dark moist heavy male earth energy. Continue to purge earth until you feel lighter and see brighter and feel cooler. Then flush the body with water energy drawing water like a shower through the body from above exhale it out the nose, mouth, heart , palms , feet and groin .Continue to purge water until you feel dry and warm and light.  Now raise the moon from the silver pool reflecting the light of the moon at the magician's feet . Draw up silver bright light heavy moist cool thick luminous silver moon. Then open the crown and flood the body with silver . See it , feel it , drink it in , inhale it with each breath with each thought fill the body with silver bright moon light and the Divine Feminine the Holy Spirit Imma Our Mother in Heaven. Then project out of the head through the moonstone as an akashic body.

The magician will want to repeat the Little Work or Opus Minor on the full moon until each pore can inhale Akasha , until each channel of the energy body is imbibed with akashic flow, and until they can become Akashic at will .
When you practice the Opus Minor;You might choose to project to
* the Higher Planes of Shamballah
* the akashic planes ~ the Hall of Records, Akashic Records.
* the realm of Barbello the cosmic womb whom Christ called his Grandmother in Heaven or you might choose to project to Shamballah.
* go into the MotherStone which is the sphere that is behind the energy body head of the magician. It is aqua in colour. You might project into it and out of it as the Mother within and project as the mother of self and heal the inner child with unconditional love by meeting the child as the mother in projection.
The child can be projected from the belly of the magician through the navel or belly button. Bi locate and hug oneself sending light from self to self to raise the vibration of the lower self or inner child until it is the same age as you and looks like you.
*the silver pool below your feet and allow the silver shower to flood the roots of the Tree below the magician in the Hanged Man.
*the sepiroth of the Mother above the left shoulder into Chokmah (Hok-Ma)to attain Divine Sophia Wisdom.

If you can not project at will sit down in quiet meditation . You might contemplate the Pistis Sophia and meditate upon it. If the body does not fill with silver it is still enlightened by this process and will eventually be able to become the akashic moon at will.

14."the father of all perfection in the whole world  is here.""
Quote
Hebrew Letter: נ Nun means "a fish" in Aramaic, an ancient language that resembles Hebrew. It evokes the fish that swims in the deep dark seas, the deep ocean that symbolizes intimacy and intense emotional energy.Path #14 - Path of Alchemy - The Way of the Rainbow This path links BEAUTY AND FOUNDATION, the Sun and the Moon. It is the road of alchemy, upon which you blend all four elements to create the gold of perfection. The synchronizer-the person who understands what's in and what's out, where things grow and where they decay-will walk this way. It demands an optimistic outlook on life as well as confidence that you can overcome any obstacle and magically create what looks and sounds impossible. This path always supplies new beginnings and new opportunities.Card: The TEMPERANCE card symbolizes the effort to balance the masculine and feminine archetypes of the universe to transmute the mundane stuff of life into the Gold of creativity and success.Challenges: Overly optimistic and an over-reliance reliance on luck. Confusion as a result of too many options.

When the magician can truly let go they can ascend past the akashic planes past the astral middle realms and into Kether/Samadhi through the completion of the Magnum Opus or Great Work  to make golden amoris silver to shine like the sun in the energy body. Do this through drawing breath crown to toes Kether to Malkuth and raising energy toes to Crown Malkuth to Kether. Sitting in sacred space in dim light in comfortable asana ; attain trance. Begin to seperate the gross elemental energies from the subtle. First purge Earth out the palms , out the belly , mouth, nose and feet energy centres with each breath; exhale dark moist heavy male earth energy. Continue to purge earth until you feel lighter and see brighter and feel cooler. Then flush the body with water energy drawing water like a shower through the body from above exhale it out the nose, mouth, heart , palms , feet and groin .Continue to purge water until you feel dry and warm and light.  Now raise Fire energy to heat the remaiing Air draw this up from the earth through the feet to the heart and up from there to the brow . Continue to raise fire until you lift from the body through the crown into the HeavenStone which is supernal in this you will find Kether and attain reunion in unio mystica for a time in meditative trance. This is the Magnum Opus or the Great Work of the Sun.

The magician will want to repeat the Great Work or Magnum Opus at Sunrise until each pore can inhale golden light Amoris , until each channel of the energy body is imbibed with golden flow, and until they can become golden light at will .
When you practice the Magnum Opus ;You might choose to project to
* Kether to sit and envelop self in Divine Light and Love
* attain Samadhi and sit in peace
* the Gates of Death above the energy body and enter the golden pool of light
through the Gate of Truth & Light
* the Golden Temples of Wisdom in Shamballah
* the ELohim Realm
* go into the FatherStone which is the sphere that is behind the energy body hips of the magician. It is rose in colour. You might project into it and out of it as the Father within and project as the father of self and heal the inner child with unconditional love by meeting the child as the father in projection.
The child can be projected from the belly of the magician through the navel or belly button. Bi locate and hug oneself sending light from self to self to raise the vibration of the lower self or inner child until it is the same age as you and looks like you. Or become younger like it but keep the Divine light within both of you like a Christ Child.
*the golden heart of the magicians within the silver pool below your feet and allow the golden shower to flood the roots of the Tree below the magician in the Hanged Man.
* enter the Hanged Man below as self projecting into it and fill the tree above and below with golden light  
*the sepiroth of the Father above the righ shoulder into Binah to attain Divine Understanding.

If you can not project at will sit down in quiet meditation . You might contemplate the Emerald Tablet or part of the Zohar  and meditate upon it or as you will. If the body does not fill with gold it is still enlightened by this process and will eventually be able to become the golden sun at will.

15."15. Its force or power is entire if it be converted into earth."
Quote
Hebrew Letter: ס Samekh translates as "Trust" or "closeness." It demonstrates the importance of certainty, trusting that no matter the impediment, failure or disaster it is there for a reason. Eventually these snags will lead to critical spiritual growth. This letter contains the secret of optimism and the constructive use of luck and synchronicities. Things change.
Path #15 - Path of Gravity - The Way of Practicality.This path connects BEAUTY and SPLENDOR. It demands the practical implementation of a person's earthly talents and determined toil. This path offers success, but the price is patience, persistence and an element of faith as the seeker balances the restrictions of the left column with the beauty of the heart. Sincerity in word and deed is paramount. Splendor provides all the information we need, but facts and figures often mislead and deceive. Connecting to the heart ensures that the message is true. Avoid lies and the tendency toward self-absorption. Use your talents in service of others. Reach outward.Card: The DEVIL symbolizes our own personal Underworld, the seat of the subconscious and the issues we never want to face. The Devil is the force that pulls us downward, forcing us to dig deeper. It is not evil but merely a call to practicality.Challenges: Fear, panic, suffering and abuse of others. Too earthly, selfish and cynical.
The Divine Emanation reflects back from Earth to Kether as above so below. The magician stands in the silver akashic pool beneath their feet and the Divine Light reflects back through the body to heaven.

16. "Separate thou the earth from the fire, the subtle from the gross sweetly with great industry"
Quote
Hebrew Letter: ע Ain means "eye."There is always more than what meets the eye. The inner eye can see beyond the physical form.Path #16 - Path of Cleansing - The Path of Truth This path ties Victory with Splendor in a journey that cleanses with fire, the most powerful form of purification we know. It is one of the three paths (along with #4 and #8) that joins the right and left pillars. It purges all false philosophies in preparation for a paradigm shift. It is not easy to set fire to something that you believe you need. It is even harder to sever yourself from someone you love. In order to connect the two opposing pillars on a practical level, we must cut out all extremes on both sides. It might require the elimination of anyone and anything that we cling to too tightly.Card: The TOWER, a depiction of the Tower of Babel being destroyed by a lightning bolt, represents our Ego. The destruction of the tower denotes the elimination of everything that blocks us from our true identity.Challenges: Violence, aggression, and self-centeredness.
The earth was removed with water so that the fire can heat the remaining air and cause life and project the magician up to Kether. The subtle elements are fire and air. The gross are heavy water and earth energies.

17. "It ascends from the earth (Malkut) to the heaven (Keter)"
Quote
Hebrew Letter: פ Pey means "mouth." The Greeks call it Pi, a symbol known for its importance in geometry and architecture. The mouth wields the power to speak kind words, but it also can kill and destroy.Path #17 - Path of Righteousness - The Path of the New Age This path joins ETERNITY TO FOUNDATION on the road of the New Age-the age of the reign of Light. It merges the expansive giving nature of the right pillar with the reproductive force of Foundation. It is the path of givers, altruists and the Water Bearer, who selflessly bestows the water of life to all. Hope, future and helping others reign. People on this course often seem a bit kooky, but they must not be dissuaded from their unique mission. Rebels, innovators and geniuses who strive for a new way find their strength here. Card: The STAR depicts a woman who pours electromagnetic energy from a golden chalice into a silver cup. She represents an extraterrestrial guardian angel to all that work for the betterment of mankind.Challenges: Too weird, eccentric, overly cerebral and scientific. Illusions and false hopes.

The magician ascends from earth to heaven. The energy body loosens from the body and lifts in projection during meditative trance, to Kether above.


18."again it descends to the earth  and receives the force  
 of things superior and inferior."
Quote
Hebrew Letter: צ Tzadik means "hook." Associated with meditation, it is like a barb thrown into the waters of the subconscious to fish for realizations and enlightenment. This letter also suggests a saint or righteous person. Path#18 - The Path of the Mystic - The Way of the Scarab The path connects KINGDOM, our material world, with the ETERNITY of the divine realm. It is the road of the Scarab, the holy beetle of ancient Egypt that rolls the Sun back into the sky every dawn. Here we encounter the threshold that joins the spiritual with the earthly. Focus on using the material to enhance the spiritual (donations and philanthropic work) as well as on using the spiritual to increase the material (creative visualization). The subconscious and psychic energies reward those on this journey. The sensitive and imaginative on this road often channel information from higher dimensions. This mystical path can be difficult, but those who dare it are often able to open new worlds for themselves and others.Card: The MOON connects to dreams, meditation and the ability to see in the darkness of the night. The Moon functions as the doorway to the feminine powers and mysteries. Only through love can they be unveiled.Challenges: Illusions, wrong turns, gullibility, dependency, a lack of limits and boundaries. Losing yourself in the other, addictions, escapism, alcohol and drugs.
Christ is the Fisher of humanity, he culled the apostles and he calls us in ascension. We are on the hook and pulled up from the abyss to heaven.There are superior elements which can control , balance, reduce , eradicate and amplify inferior elements. The basic 4 tattwas or elements are inferior to the secondary element akasha which is inferior to the tertiary element of Amoris. The human being is sustained in life giving breath with the akashic moon breathe it in to heal to fly to manifest to sustain life but in balance with the amoris. The marriage of these two elements silver akashic moon and golden amoris sun will yield the quatiary element of Treaure which is the amalgamation the marriage the union and the child of the moon and the sun.

19."By this means you shall have the glory of the whole world thereby all obscurity shall fly from you."
Quote
Hebrew Letter: ק Kof means "Back of the head." Scientists have discovered that this part of the brain regulates dreaming and sleep. The letter, a glyph that looks like the back of the head and the spinal cord, emphasizes the need for meditation, dreaming and spiritual practice.Path #19 - Path of Life - The Way of the Child. This path links Foundation with Splendor on a creative journey of fulfillment, success and spirituality. Known as the path of the Solar Child, it brings ecstasy and a complete surrender to the dance of life. Vitality and freedom rule. Charismatic leaders, who rely on joyous persuasion rather than coercion, walk here, making others happy with their own happiness. Laughter is their flag. But you must remember that the energy comes from on high, not from yourself alone.Card: The SUN represents the central gravitational pull of our solar system. Everything revolves around it. This card evokes a childlike innocence that is also powerfully charged with the potential for growth.Challenges: Arrogance, egoism, demanding, controlling and overly dramatic. An unhealthy need for recognition and fame.

The meaning of this line from the Emerald Tablet is that occult wisdom and esoteric understandings will be available to the mystic magician who has attained the ability to flow silver akasha and golden amoris through their energy body channels. They will be able to manifest with akasha , and see with amoris fire through the water of the moonstone. Amoris is a higher vibration of Fire and superior as an elemental energy to facilitate clairvoyance. The control of the elements will facilitate projection so that the magician may attain any realm. They will be invited by spirit teachers who will arrive to lead the magician through the Qlippoth initially through the Hanged Man to the Lower Realms of the Afterlife and to the Afterlife realms in Heaven too.
And the MotherStone is at the back of the head. This energy centre manifests after the 4 stones on the spine are fully developed. The magician can project from the Mother Stone as their unconditionally loving parent body to hug and heal with energy and love their inner child which projects from the naval or belly button

20 "Its force is above all force. for it vanquishes every subtle thing and penetrates every solid thing."
Quote
Hebrew Letter: ר Resh means "head." It signifies the top dog, the leader of all the planets. The head, our brain, rules our body, interpreting all the sensory stimuli that connect us to the outside world.Path #20 - Path of Resurrection - The Way of Rebirth.This path unites KINGDOM, the material plane, with SPLENDOR on a road of resurrection. It stands for Judgement Day, the moment when everything that is dead or swept under the carpet returns to the Light. Take care of your past and the collective past of all sentient beings. Bring dead feelings and dead ideas back to life. Before we experience enlightenment, everything must be exposed to Light and healed. This is a path for self-analysis; not to find fault or pin blame, but to fix and correct all wounds. We need the past to help us avoid a repetition of our mistakes. Those who walk on this road possess the strength to handle any demons they might uncover.Card: JUDGEMENT symbolizes not a day of punishment, but a time to reflect on our past behavior. This card triggers the resurrection of the divine powers in each of us.Challenges: Getting lost in the past, manipulative, abusive.
Love and light vanquishes all and penetrates all. Light vanquishes demons exorcising them. The magician clairvoyant sight can penetrate time, space and remote view.With the energy centres in the head , the magician can project to all realms, see all entities and hear the lessons of the angels and avatars.

21 "So was the world created.From this are and do come admirable adaptations whereof the means (Or process) is here in this."
Quote
Hebrew Letter: ש Shin means "Tooth," the organ that sows wisdom (wisdom tooth). And just as teeth can be used to determine a person's age (long in the tooth), Shin helps us reflect on our days gone by. As one of the three maternal letters (along with Aleph and Mem), Shin rules the element of fire.Path #21- The Path of the Earth - The Way of the Physical Existence This final path ties FOUNDATION and KINGDOM, bringing everything from above into the material plane of physical existence. Governed by Saturn, the planet responsible for crystallizing thoughts into matter, this road transforms the intangible into concrete blocks of reality. The sphere of Foundation blends all the power of the first nine spheres and then shoots it into Kingdom. It is the path of completion, the path that connects the Moon with Earth. It requires patience and persistence. Just as it took human evolution millions of years to send a man to the Moon, it will take time and work before all your own personal projects, all your own personal karma, blossom once and for all.Card: The UNIVERSE depicts a woman dancing with a snake. The woman represents Eve, who has attained enlightenment by making peace with the very creature that caused her fall from paradise. By embracing your enemies and setbacks, you can transcend the limitations of matter. Challenges: Frustration, lack of persistence, falling into a rut. Overly stubborn and materialistic. A tendency to misuse other people and step over bodies to achieve your own goals.
The world is created by the Word and Will of God and through Lux. For it is written "Let there be light and there was light"
22. "Hence I am called Hermes Trismegist, having the three parts of the philosophy of the whole world.That which I have said of the operation of the Sun is accomplished and ended."
Quote
Hebrew Letter: ת Tav, the final letter, means "cross," "sign" or "tone." It denotes the cross, the sign or the song set down at the end of the road as a symbol of triumph and dreams fulfilled. It is the flag stuck into the surface of the moon, into your new frontier.
The Operation of the Sun is the Magnum Opus.
