The Pattern on the Trestleboard-The Truth about Self is a mechanism for understanding the Truth about you . It is a meditation on the 10 centers of Energy-Conscious that compose the Whole of You rather than just concentrating on the 1% of you which is the physical sensual body and survival mind of the animal.
On the Qabalistic Tree of Life, these Patterns (perspectives) are listed as Sephiroth, O represents the Invisible Energy, before light, that somehow became conscious...we do not know how. 1) represents the First Motion of energy/conscious int the Universe and is called Kether. Since I have often refereed to the Tree of Life in past blogs, there is no need to go through it all now. The last perspective/pattern is called 10) Malkuth---the 1% of ourselves- physical world.
The Pattern on the Trestleboard is meant to be recited upon rising out of bed in the morning, and before going to be at night. That way the powerful expanding and liberating perspectives, work for you on the Dream state of Astral being and the waking state of physical being. The life we live is all about perspective---common thought is based on self-belittlement while the Divine created you as a Self in order to expand and liberate self-awareness from the past limits of creation..There is obvious conflict here and the resulting confusion keeps us reacting to life rather than Living It! All serious students of the Qaballah know the axiom of " above all things, know thyself" and the Pattern on the Trestleboard is about the perspectives of Self- Knowledge. To repeat this Pattern, is to open your personality to the Power of the Original Personality that is your Divine Inheritance. It works----I know because I have and still do, repeat this pattern mentally and verbally, day and night. It works---and is about the Perspective of You that the Divine knows. If you do nothing else to expand and liberate yourself from mental mundane-slavery, do this....it takes only seconds, but activates and eternity of Self. Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper.
