GENESIS 01:An Alchemical Take

We’re all familiar with the Creation Epoch, but how often do we really get to breakdown the way God works here? You guys know from previous posts why I feel it all starts with the utterance of the plural name of God, Elohim, but why is it important? Almost immediately we see a reference to “a […]

A PERSONAL PATH TO PEACE

“By thirty-two mystical Paths has been established the Wisdom of YHVH Sabaoth, God of Israel, living Elohim, almighty God, high and supreme, living for all eternity.” -Sefer Yetzirah 1-1 We’re not real sure who actually wrote the Sefer Yetzirah.

MINIMALISM IS THE WAY

One of the most beautiful gifts daily practice can offer is us serenity. When we journey within and aspire to be living examples of peace and love our cravings naturally start to subside.

Buddhists would site attachment to certain feelings as the root cause. The average Christian would say I haven’t learned to open up my heart to accept […]

JACOB BOEHME

Boehme taught that we human beings have a hidden essence within us that is God. A divine spark that remains within us looking to be found. “An immortal Dowry.” – “an inward Ground and unlost Possession.” He talked of an “innermost Birth” that happens when we start the work of discovering this inward Dowry.

THE GOLDEN CANDLESTICKS

“Then the angel who spoke with me returned and aroused me, like one awakened from sleep. He said to me, “What do you see?” I replied, “I see a lampstand all of gold, with a bowl on top of it. There are seven lamps on it, with seven spouts on each of the lamps that […]
