Metaphysics is a intuitive science rather than an empirical science. It is often called the study of the Mysteries. Mysteries, because the Forces studied are invisible to the naked eye, and microscopes. May people just chalk up the effects of these invisible forces as fate or Supernatural stuff.
As most of us know, we are effected by invisible forces, such as gravity, magnetism, radiations etc. and some of us know that we are also Greater than our bodies. After all, according to Quantum Physics, we are 99.6% space! That means we are mostly
What was invisible in the ancient past was often called Spiritual and the effects/actions of these invisible forces, when positive to the survival mind, where called Gods and Goddesses, and when negative to the survival mind (evil--live spelled backwards) where called demons and devils.
We now call all that ancient "stuff" superstitious or mythological belief. After all we are modern, and have electricity and the high tech that it drives; But before you go too far with this errant thought, let me explain something to you; we don't know what electricity is! It's effects are known to us, but it is not because electrons are flowing at light speed down a wire...in fact electrons move slowly in bunches down a wire.....so what is moving at light speed? Well it is Invisible Force which we may call electromagnetic force and because our brain believes words are knowledge, we think we know something! Words are a trick--------------the word doesn't produce the effect, it is merely a dream of knowing! Metaphysical sciences such as Qaballah, Tantra, Theosophy and Gnosism, are about studying the effects of Conscious and Unconscious states of Energy! So that we may classify the effects, and thus Willfully direct these invisible forces to expand and liberate our lives and the alive, from the self-limiting concepts of words and the resulting judgments! We all know that there is only One Energy (religious people call this the One God) that can't be created nor destroyed; only transformed. All around us, and as us, are the Transformations of the One. The One is in the many and the many are in the One. Since 99.6% of ourselves is invisible, it stands to reason that we may want to know about our self-Majority ...you know---the Invisible Self! But in order for the One to be Godlike---it must be Conscious,i.e. knowingly direct force!
What the Magi of Qaballah learned (all invisible forces cause effects that look like "magic"), is that our Spirit (Invisible Self) is composed of many states of self-realization and/or states of energy conscious and that by giving these states forms (Sephiroth on the Tree of Life) we can then realize them----just as we can realize electricity through lamps, stereos, toaster ovens etc. So they have come up with a system to realize the invisible and its effects on the visible! Kether, is on the top of this Tree-Form, but Kether is "UNSEEN Light/energy" (Called the Dark Fire or Dark energy) so it is given the form of a circle with a dot in the center. This goes along with the Physics explanation of an Entity, which is a point in Time------------- all though Kether is before time, a point has been established as identity in the infinity represented by the circle. That Point became Chokma which is the "first concept of form" (Dark electric force), which means Wisdom and the "I" was created.... a Primal form of consciousness. Self-awareness requires observation and observation requires form so the first Idea of Self became Am----which is called Binah, who is the Great Dark Womb/Ocean of Dark Energy and Dark Matter (Dark magnetism) who is known as Understanding which is form in conception. Binah is then known as the Mother of all Creation. Love of Being is invented now, and the Children of Chokma (Wisdom) and Binah (Understanding) are called Daath (knowledge) which is an invisible Sephira (Sephira and Sephiroth mean "circle and circles") because this is all possibilities that the child must decide for itself! We are those Children! ....there are seven more explanations of your inheritance of Conscious and Unconscious Energy Forces and Forms on this Tree of Thee-------------but this is a short and sweet explanation of a Metaphysical Intuitive Science that once practiced and known, establishes "Magic Abilities" as the Will of the manifested person. Moderns call these psychic abilities and studying about those is fun but being them is an Ecstasy! That alone is worth the study of Metaphysics! After many thousands of years the ability to show these invisible forces of conscious, personality, etc. in a form that can be understood by study and meditation (intuitional sciences require "Inner viewing") and are called the Major Arcana (Invisible state of Conscious Energy- Force and Form) and the Court Cards (the 16 personality Archetypes) and the Minor Arcana (states of Unconscious forces and form) . So to Know Thyself seems to be a lot more complicated than the worded definitions supplied to you as "your Self Value" in the world of Rulers. Let us not forget that To Rule means to control definition and defining you so that you can be controlled by your "masters" ( Parents,employers, religious leaders, Academia, Police, government and all other forms of Authority)
is not what Was created by the I AM of this One Energy nor its transformations. We call our personal transformation- ME ! and I AM Me---is a Whole Spirit! Just remember this, you are Valued above all Values in this Universe of One who is Many----because you were given the ability to Imagine Your Self! Some of us call that freedom of choice.....which is a bane concept to those who wish to supply you with your definition! . The study of Qaballah/Metaphysics is a long one so this short blog is not the Whole of the Knowledge and Wisdom of the Magi...but it'll get you started in understanding that we have forgotten a whole lot about ourselves! Know that we are Selves (gods) of the Greater Self (God) and it's okay to enjoy yourself! We are not nor ever have been a religion! We are a Scientific Expression of Self-Awareness by the I-Magi-Nation of God Self Awareness! Thank you for your interest and comments.
