And God said to Abram," Go for yourself from your land, from your relatives, and from your father's house to the land that I will show you. And I will makes of you a great nation. I will bless you and make your home great, and you shall be a blessing."
Thus began the long journey for Abram, who hasn't yet earned the name Abraham for he has yet to earn the holy Heh, signifying his connection with the Divine. Many long trials, tribulations, journeying through foreign lands and through deserts ---all signifying the travels one must take on the Paths of the Tree of Life of Qabalistic fame. This Letter Aleph is all about a change of perspective, that must happen before we can become the divine being we were created to be. We know this journey to be a deeper one than just a physical change----it is about an inner change where we must leave behind our previous presumptions, closed minded thought, expectations, etc. Where we must change our perspective about life, ourselves and everybody else and we must go for ourselves leaving the past behind. In Qabalistic terms this is the path of key-0 -The Fool Card (Patriarch), for he is Kether the Sephera on top of the Tree of Life. Kether, who represents the Highest level of the Universal Mind which we can only approach by completely annihilate of Self as we conceive it, but with a whimsical approach, so that we may understand the irony of attempting to grasp such lofty principles from an earthly perspective. "As above, so Below", signifies this journey that seems most difficult and impossible as we look into the mirror image of below to see that which is above. We must look deeply into Malkuth (Below) and there find Kether (The Above---"the other side of the Mirror')
The Divine Spirit is all we know (The One Energy Conscious that is us, all around us, above us and below us.) , we live within it (as a reflection lives in a mirror) , we breath it ( Spirit is Breath) it is ourselves. Everything is an expression of the One Energy symbolized by the Fool, which is the beginning of all, as Aleph is the beginning of the alphabet. And as an Ox, we must be strong in our journey, never deviating, sometimes plodding along, through many perspectives of ourselves and everyone else, before we can view the Above ( "see the light"). Key -O- The Fool, is represent by the "0", because zero is a great symbol for the Universal Egg of Spirit, The Egg of Akasha. The Mathematics of zero is plus 1 (male) minus 1 (female). Thus the egg of the Cosmos is a fertilized ovum of undefined sexuality, neither male nor female but ripe with the potential for both. Key-O-The Fool is Androgynous energy (I call it "The Womb with a view") which differentiates into the dramatis personae of the other twenty-one keys. Obviously I gave you many avenues for research here, You must "go forth alone" to travel this path----which means a lot of self realization through diligent effort. The Statement I have formed as a loop for dispelling my in ornate need to "quit", is simply this, " Get over yourself and get on with you, For impeccability is what we do". With that in mind, I take on the next challenge with a step into the Abyss of the unknown, and find that my foot is solidly supported! God speed on your miraculous journey into your Above that Adored your Below into being!
