A drawn Kabbalistic Tree of Life
Many people are interested in esoteric science without being ready for it! They quote things they have taken here and there, from books they’ve barely understood, and they are proud to pass as astrologers, alchemists, magi and cabbalists… But the poor things don’t realize their life and whole being are just a shambles, bearing no relation to true astrology, alchemy, magic or Cabbalah. It would be better if they left all these sciences alone! It should be our everyday life that shows what we know. By reading books, of course we can always gain some knowledge and even become very learned. But this is not true knowledge. True knowledge lies in the mastery of oneself, in freeing oneself from weaknesses, in no longer being constantly prey to inner doubts. Those who possess true knowledge seek to be a light-filled, friendly presence wherever they go. And only when they achieve this will they really be able to benefit from studying esoteric science. (O.M. Aïvanhov)
Jacob’s ladder is the symbol of the angelic hierarchy that links human beings and God, and which in the Cabbalah, is represented by the Tree of Life, the Sephirotic Tree. To imagine as some people do that we can speak directly to God simply demonstrates great ignorance.
On earth, it is impossible to meet with an important person unless we go through intermediaries and yet, where the Lord is concerned, we can go right up to him without the slightest problem! For the Lord, you see, is a kindly gent who is very accessible, whose beard we can pull and whose shoulder we can slap! In reality, if there were no transformers, that is, these hierarchies that form the link between humans and God, there would not be the least trace left of anyone who approached the Lord: they would be struck down. (O.M. Aïvanhov)
