Hermetic Qabalah

Hermetic Qabalah
Teachings[edit] Conception of Divinity[edit] A primary concern of Hermetic Qabalah is the nature of divinity, its conception of which is quite markedly different from that presented in monotheistic religions; in particular there is not the strict separation between divinity and humankind which is seen in monotheisms.[2] Hermetic Qabalah holds to the neoplatonic conception that the manifest universe, of which material creation is a part, arose as a series of emanations from the godhead.[3] The Sephiroth in Hermetic Qabalah[edit] From Ain Suph Aur crystallises Kether, the first sephirah of the Hermetic Qabalistic tree of life. From Kether emanate the rest of the sephirot in turn, viz. Each sephirah is a nexus of divine energy and each has a number of attributions. Tarot and the Tree of Life[edit] Hermetic Qabalists see the cards of the tarot as keys to the Tree of Life.

A Manual of Khshnoom: Supplement No. 11 - Wisdom Library [Page 208] Geush Tashan and Geush Urva Geush Tashan (Ysn. 29,2) and his co-worker Geush Urva (ibid. 1) are the two beneficent sub-angelic potentialities. They represent two divisions of one and the same exalted soul of the Naba-nazdishta class, who rank next to Yazad, angel. While Geush Tashan is stationed on Upairi Dakhyu (vide map of Nisti), Geush Urva has his seat on Geti, the earthy globe. Tree of life (Kabbalah) The Tree of Life, or Etz haChayim (עץ החיים) in Hebrew, is a classic descriptive term for the central mystical symbol used in the Kabbalah of esoteric Judaism, also known as the 10 Sephirot. Its diagrammatic representation, arranged in 3 columns/pillars, derives from Christian and esoteric sources and is not known to the earlier Jewish tradition.[citation needed] The tree, visually or conceptually, represents as a series of divine emanations 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 of 10 spiritual principles (11 can be shown, of which - Keter and Da'at are interchangeable),

10 Life Hacks to Help You Cut Plastic Out of the Picture By Kate Good / onegreenplanet.org Plastic is so ubiquitous that it can be found in or associated with nearly every tangible item in existence. Just think about how many different things you used today that either were plasticor came packaged in plastic, you’re guaranteed to come up with at least five. It’s no secret that we all have a rather sordid relationship with plastic: it’s incredibly convenient, but it’s equally wasteful. In the U.S., we go through around 1,500 plastic water bottles every second, and it takes around 100 years for these bottles to break down.

Theurgy Definitions[edit] Neoplatonism[edit] Although the Neoplatonists are considered polytheists, they embraced a form of monism. Hermeticism Not to be confused with Hermit. Hermeticism, also called Hermetism,[1][2] is a religious and philosophical/esoteric tradition based primarily upon writings attributed to Hermes Trismegistus ("Thrice Great").[3] These writings have greatly influenced the Western esoteric tradition and were considered to be of great importance during both the Renaissance[4] and the Reformation.[5] The tradition claims descent from a prisca theologia, a doctrine that affirms the existence of a single, true theology that is present in all religions and that was given by God to man in antiquity.[6][7] Many Christian writers, including Lactantius, Augustine,[8] Thomas Aquinas[citation needed], Marsilio Ficino, Giovanni Pico della Mirandola, Giordano Bruno, Campanella, Sir Thomas Browne, and Emerson, considered Hermes Trismegistus to be a wise pagan prophet who foresaw the coming of Christianity.[9][10] History[edit]

Christian Kabbalah The Renaissance saw the birth of Christian Kabbalah/Cabala (From the Hebrew קַבָּלָה "reception", often transliterated with a 'C' to distinguish it from Jewish Kabbalah and Hermetic Qabalah[1]), also spelled Cabbala. Interest grew among some Christian scholars in what they saw to be the mystical aspects of Judaic Kabbalah, which were compatible with Christian theology. Although somewhat obscure, the tradition of Christian Cabala or Catholic Cabala still persists today.[citation needed] Plants Have Memories: The Spiritual Case Against Agricultural Manipulation The Lakota of North America have many stories about seeds and how to know when each plant is in its sacredness. One seed flowers during a spiritual window called the Timpsila Ttkahca Wi, or when the Moon of Timpsila (turnip) is ripe. If you were to prematurely dig for the plant, it will not grow into a full nutrient. If you're too late in collecting the flower top, it breaks aboveground, and fierce winds blow the top away, leaving no trace where the underground root is located. During the short spring-summer months the Timpsila flower is in its calling — to let one know the time for collecting and abundance. It's during this moon the Lakota are preparing for great ceremonies to be held throughout the coming spring and summer months.

The question went something like – “If the Flower of Life is everything, then is stuff like traffic jams and office cubicles a representation of the Flower of Life too?” So far, the short answer that I have for that is “Yes and No”. There are parts of that which is true.
