The Story of Peh:
And the Pharaoh's heart was hardened and he did not let the Children of Israel go.
[Illustrated Letter Card From: Ask The Kabala oracle cards--By: Deepak Chopra & Michael "Zappy" Zapolin with Alys R. Yablon]
Most of us know or have heard of the hard-hearted Pharaoh, and how he had to be threatened by 9 plaques before he let the Jews leave Egypt. Moses kept asking the Pharaoh to "let my people go" but not until the last plaque, of the first born son of every Egyptian family dying at midnight...did the Pharaoh relent. This is a story of evil that the human heart is capable of. Our history is full of Tyrants, Despots and Emperors with hard hearts. However, they are not alone. I bet that every one of us can remember when we chose to condemn rather than forgive.What we fail to notice is that evil is live spelled backwards and points us to devolution rather than evolution...going backwards rather than forwards; where we revert to our survival mind rather than the
compassionate heart of our Soul.

We know that light comes from darkness and that Enlightenment has its origin in the hidden sources of power which terrify the ignorant mind (survival mind). The Pharaoh had every chance (10 of them---which happens to be the same number of Sephira on the Tree of Life) to become enlightened but he chose the past thought process rather than the progressive one...and misery resulted. Now many would say that God"punished the Pharaoh" by the horrific plaques that accosted the people of Egypt, but that is merely slave-thinking. Love doesn't punish us---God is Love. What "punishes" us----is our own ignorance. When we fail to progressively think as a "Today" we are thoughts of "Yesterday" and fail to progress. We become "Wanna-bes" rather than "I AM". Remember, to think ill is to experience illness (evil) and to think well is to experience wellness (Live). Now I am not speaking of the natural illnesses that happen to organic form---that is how earth controls over-population and/or strengthens immune systems ( our Spirit is the King/Queen of immune systems!). Rather to live only as fear of ...is to experience personally what you fear---as your life. To live as happiness is to experience happiness as your life etc. To harden your heart---is to not be a soul who lives but rather an animal who fears life. I know that sometimes we must sink to our lowest form of behavior before we decide to change for the best. Many drug addicts and alcoholics seek reform only after a "near death" experience and grieving loss often means depression before we begin the healing process. As a Qabalist , I call these "Tower Moments", where all the illusions (veils) we build as "comforts" come tumbling down, leaving us naked and seemingly alone However, the collapse of our "veils" leaves open- eyes (I's) and we can now look around; we can see that we are not alone, we are accompanied by the many of Soul as a Spirit Personality and if we open our mouths in love, we will be able to express the "Words of Love" into the musical sound of our lives. We are born of Frequency (Word of God) and we combine our frequency with other frequencies to form harmony (peace). But this union of frequencies--of words and hearts---is not a mechanism of progress of a hard-heart. Hard Hearts are not producers of union, rather they seek only division, so they can "conquer" others and use words to punish others for not "seeing their selfish vision". When you see others as another way to be you then the words of the soul are spoken as another form of Union/Love/Live that has been called [communion]. The Mouth is an important gateway for creation and we should choose our words carefully. We have forgotten that we "speak the destiny" of our lives! The Mouth is a Gateway for nourishment as well as, a Gateway for the "Nourishing expression". It is an important part of our Magic! To Me Words of Power, are important ways to bring down our Towers of delusion, and one of the most powerful statement I know is the first one I have trained my brain to think when I look at "another" and that is," I am the love of you." Rather than the survival mind's" Friend or Foe" thinking.I know that I am Spirit who Loves a person into being. I love my being and raise him daily to new heights of conscious energy. There are no strangers to me...only "another way to be me" and Love is how I express my being into Life! I know I do not own love so I avoid saying,"I love you", for often that is a possession to the brain. I don't posses any one but my own body. When Spirit says, "I Am The Love of You"....it makes "me" live and knows you as Spirit to. The Kingdom of Love is all around us and I do see it...Thanks to those Devastating Tower Moments, my "I's" are open! This Universe is all about Energy-Conscious seeking "Self-Awareness"...all about us is Self---in the many faceted reflections of the First Matter,i.e. Love!
