As we continue our discussion into the esoteric mysteries of the Tree of Life, this chapter covers a range of topics within the mystical realm of the Qabalah; the basic understanding of Qabalah as a whole the nature of the Hebrew language, and the different kinds of Qabalah systems that exist.

Qabalah translates to “Received Tradition”, or simply “to Receive”, and actually is an ancient esoteric interpretation of the Torah, the first five books within the Old Testament.

These teachings have a very mysterious origin, with some claiming that they were originally received by Moses, while others suggest that it was Abraham who was the first to describe the Qabalah. Regardless of these possibilities, the first actual texts on Qabalah were written in the Zohar in 13th century Spain.

The Qabalah describes the physical world we live in as being a world of outcomes, but not a world of causes. This physical plane we live in, is the result of the invisible forces of nature, which creates the projection of tangibility, a hologram that we have come to believe is solid.

There are also different types of systems to understanding the Qabalah as well. There is the spelling with a Q, the one we’ve been using. There is also Kabbalah with a K, and even Cabalah with a C. This is because of the widespread use of Qabalah between different religions and spiritual practices over time. In the traditional Hebrew spelling, Qabalah is translated to the letters Qoph, Bet, Lamed, He. In english this sort of translates to QBLH, as there are no vowel letters in the Hebrew Alphabet.

Over time, Qabalah has been adopted by a wide array of different traditions and practices, which have led to three predominant spellings to correlate each tradition’s specific understanding of the practice.

The original version is spelt with a K. This is the Hebrew Kabbalah and is set in its traditional scriptures, not deviating or expanding beyond the borders of the faith. This was was soon adopted by Christians and Cabala was spelt with a C to distinguish it from the Hebrew version.

Finally, after the rediscovery of the ancient writings attributed to Thoth or Hermes during the Renaissance, another Qabalah was developed, this time spelt with a Q, which today is called Hermetic Qabalah. This modern version of the Qabalah explores the same esoteric Hebrew practice, correlated with the wisdom and writings attributed to Thoth-Hermes, and over time has been related to a great deal of other world spiritualities as well.

    I had followed your videos in some years past mainly because they mirrored much of my childhood. As a child I was born with an agnosia or jamais vu of this world having something of a sense of a past life and experience not fully encompassed by memory but by habits and my own internal nature and disposition.Of which was very misplaced from the geographical area I was born and even deriving in me an accent that did not match the native population. In all I studied sacred Geometry, pieces of psychology, physics, chemistry and of course religions.

    Overall my faith like aspects never encapsulated an anthropomorphic deity that most religions gave and more prescribed it as a natural force or pantheistic nature. Falling into the sciences I went down the path of Biochemistry as my faith turned more atheistic and even in some degrees nhilistic. However I still could never shake off the feelings a long chain of being begetting the aspect of reincarnation; that I mentioned beforehand. As well an over arching force I considered a degree of god. Falling into a slight degree of Taoism I eventually ran into the Qabala which unified many of the old philosophies of my past including the zodiac and tarot with Jungs Archtypes and my Buddhist and Taoist aspects I had gained. It not only has allowed me to incorporated my old theistic and pantheistic emanations of god but even coincide with my atheistic ruminations of emergence and overall removing the conflictions of these dualistic ideals and philosophies.

    Overall you could easily incorporate the ideas of the zodiac and the tarot with Carl Jungs ideas of Achtypes and the zeitgeist and even add in the science that shows certain times of the years do effect your disposition. You can also Correlate this and the Qabala with comparing/contrasting the aspects of a Fixed and Growth Mindset.

    What happens if you take the kabbalah and look at the point of matter manifestation, what if you were to inverse it and look at that as the point of singularity. flowing upward and downward creating a tarus. To me this would then again show an infinite out to space/ higher consciousness but to opposite of the infinite molecules, maybe conscious life lives within us as well and we ARE the universe, as well as within the universe. I would love to know your wisdom and opinion on this idea.
