Tree of Life
Above I have posted a symbol. It is called the tree of life and it is a symbol derived from a Denomonation of Judiaism, called Qabalah (Kabalah). In this pussel are ten orbs, these are called sephiroth, the plural, the singular form is sephira. I am now going to do my best to explain the workings of this tree with what resources I have available. Let us begin.
I'll start with the ten Sephiroth. The first one
Malkuth- This is essentially the earth. It is the reciever of all the energies coming from the other nine.
Yesod(E-sod)- The general conception of Yesod is of change with stability. (Regardie, 1994) Yesod is that subtle basis upon which the physical world is based....It is the Astral Plane, which in one sense being passive and reflecting energies from above is lunar, even as the moon reflects the light of the sun. The Astral Light is an omnipresent and all-permeating fluid or medium of extremely subtle matter; substance in a highly tenuous state, electric and magnetic in constitution, which is the model upon which the physical world is built. It is the endless, changeless, ebb and flow of the world's forces that, in the last resort, guarantee the stability of the world and provides its foundation. (Regardie, 1994)
Hod- It is a source of the energy that gives stability to the Malkuth, to us.
Netzach-The whole implication of this Sephirah is of Love—albeit a love of a sexual nature. (Regardie, 1994)
Tiphareth- This is our center piece and in some respects it is the most important. It is the only lower sephira that is in direct commune with Kether(see below). It is the central gathering for all the energies of the universe.
Geburah-The quality of Geburah is summed up in the general idea of strength and power and force. (Regardie, 1994)
Chesed- it is the highest idea which can be understood in an intellectual way. (The Book of Thoth).
Binah- In short, Binah is the substantive vehicle of every possible phenomenon, physical or mental (Regardie, 1994)
Chomach- Chokmah is the vital energizing element in existance...by which is implied the basic reality underlying all manifestations of consciousness (Regardie, 1994)
Kether- The word "ineffable" means beyond description, beyond speech. It refers to Kether, the ultimate Unity which is beyond all Understanding and cannot be comprehended even through the highest Wisdom. (Helena & Tau Apiryon, 1998)
I hope this let in some in sight to what it is I have put up on my site. Or at least to those who care. For all my eva fans who come here, look closley at this image and then watch the eva movie:End of Evangelion. Look to that blue symbol in the sky ofrmed by the nine eva series. It is the tree of life. They have a lot of qabalistic references in Evangelion. If you want to know more comment and ask and I'll do what I can to get it to you, or if you just have more questions about the religion in general. I promise to do what I can to answer the questions I may recieve. Comments (0) |
I bring you my first video to MyO account. This is from one of my favorite anime, with one of my favorite songs. I intend to put more of these up, with more of my favorite anime and more of my favorite music.
The song is one of my favorites at this time. It's called "My December" and it's by Linkin Park.
