THE SEPHIROTH AND THEIR SYMBOLS---PART 2:
The Qaballistic Tree of Life, is a multidimensional depiction of Force and Form. It is almost impossible to understand that these ten dimensions are cubed. That is a deep study of the Mysteries of Qaballah and I won't even attempt to explain it in this short blog. Let it be known that each Sephiroth has it's own Tree of Life. The complications exist because of 14.7 billion years of Conscious Energy forming Self-Awareness as image. We should understand that the human form is an "image of God"....but not the only image.
When represented as Tarot Cards, the Sephiroth are represented by the 10 numbered cards of each suit and the court cards that are placed on the Sephiroth representing the Principle of TETRAGRAMMATON (Divine Name).
As seen in the lower illustration of the Tree of Life, Aces refer to Kether, 2's to Chokma, and 3's to Binah etc. As indicated the
Court Cards are placed with Kings (Knights) in Chokma, the Queens in Binah, the Princes in Tiphareth and the Princesses in Malkuth. However, the Court Cards also relate to the entire Tree of Life, beyond the selected Sephiroth. This may seem confusing; However, there is no division in the One, who is the Only energy that all forces and forms are realized from.
This may seem even more complicated when one realizes that the Hebrew Alphabet is based on the letter form Yod. Which is the One Energy that the entire universe is derived from and is symbolized as Kether (top Sephiroth) but isn't realized until it becomes Chokma (Fiery/Electric Masculine Principle) which is the Original "I" or the beginning of identity. Binah ( the Feminine Watery/Magnetic Principle) is the first Form called "AM" so now we have the name of Creation which is I AM. We can simply say that I is idea and Am is Womb that gives idea form, i.e. Imagination. This seems simple enough, until one realizes that the invisible Sephiroth--Daath, is between Chokma (2- Wisdom) and Binah (3-Understanding) on the Princess path and is known as Knowledge. So to make this simple, the Wisdom of Father, and the Understanding of Mother has produce the Child---------Self-Knowledge. Which is our name---I AM ME! So if understood, the Family that is God is the Supernal Triangle plus the invisible Child--Daath, which when added forms a diamond shape! This is the shape often used to symbolize the axiom As above-so below. If you can see this----you are beginning to understand that we are the many faces of the Child of the Divine, and inherit all that is Kether- Chokma-Binah and are the Knowledge of the Spirit Supreme Self made manifest. Now I know this is a lot to realize---so I'll stop here and let you research even more complicate explanations and how I was able to simplify it .
