Introduction to MALKUTH, Sphere of Earth

Malkuth means "the Kingdom."  All gross matter may be considered as expressing the qualities of the four elements: fire, water, air, and earth.  In modern terms, there are four fundamental natural forces.  They are "strong" force, "weak" force, electromagnetism, and gravity.  "Strong" force holds the nucleus of the atom together, contributing to the tability of matter; "weak" force occurs in many natural processes, but the most familiar is radioactive decay.  Malkuth is the corporeal sphere of Earth.

The basis of any stable magickal development is the maintanance of physical health through proper diet and exercise.  Wrong diet, especially eating at inappropriate times, is a major cause of physical, emotional, and mental imbalance.

Opinions differ on whether man's natural diet should include meat.  But most meat is full of steroids and antibiotics that accumulate and cause harm to the body.  What serious aspirant would want to kill and living creatures for food or sport?  Is that not a lack of compassion?  Advantages of a meatless die include lower incidence of hardening of the arteries, less uric acid, and chemical intake.  According to yogis, it also makes the body less distracting in meditation to eat Satvic, rather than rajasic or tamasic foods.  Nutritional suppliments for B-12, lecithin and minerals ensure optimal physical and mental performance.

The best stress management programs consist of a combination of physical exercise and meditation.  One works with the sympathetic nervous system, and other on the parasympathetic system.

Development of body-awareness is important for "coming to wholeness."  There are many techniques to choose from.  A disciplined physical fitness routine might include any of the following: aerobics, "chopping wood and carrying water," Tai Chi, hatha yoga, or dance.  If you seek energy=aerobics; freedom=stretching, yoga, Tai Chi; power=martial arts, muscle building; joy=dance; exercise + "inner-cize" can be done with guided images.

1. Physical Plane:  The four natural forces.  Resonance.  Sensory awareness.  Diet and Exercise.  Level of observation in Physics; matter.  Body; psychosomatics.

2. Astral Plane: The Magickal Image is a Young Woman, Crowned and Throned, who is Demeter/Persephone, a dual form of the Goddess.  She is at once Earth Mother and her daughter (the Kore), the archetypal maiden.  This young bride becomes the Queen of the Underworld, or subconscious.  Persona, the social mask.  Discrimination, avarice, inertia.

 3. Causal Plane:  The Personal Unconscious includes the memories and repressed material which must be raised to consciusness.  These conflicts must be resolved before one is ready to confront the Collective Unconscious.  These repressed contents requires a specific technique designed to "raised" them.

  4. Archetypal Plane: Initiation into a Mystery has to do with "initium"; an image of "going within, suddenly" as in the abduction of Persephone into the Underworld, below the threshold of consciousness.  Her "going within" changed her in a fundamental way, suddenly and forever.

Introduction to THE UNIVERSE, Path 32

Path 32 bridges the Physical Plane to the Astral Plane.  As it is ruled astrologically by the planet Saturn, 
it has to do with space/time and the propagation of recurrent patterns, (from archetypal manifestation to human habits).

As the connecting link between malkuth and Yesod, Path 32 graphically depicts how space/time connects
EM fields to matter.

Path 32 is the first path encountered when the aspirant is initiated into the Way of Return up the Tree of Life.  It is a path of equilibrium, since it is found on the Middle Pillar.  It represents the beginning and perfection of the Great Work.

1. Physical Plane: Melancholy and anxiety with fantasies of regeneration and rejuvination. 
Path 32 is the avenue of reincarnation on the descent of spirit into matter.  The mind becomes introspective and turns away from the field of sensory perception as a literal (and only) reality.  The 'well' symbolizes the subconscious, the Fountain of Youth, or immortality.  Alchemy was originally conceived as a life extension program, which renewed one both psychically and physically (Yesod and Malkuth).  Perception.

2. Astral Plane: The strongest image for this path is a descent into the underworld.  It is the beginning stage of mystical soul travel, during which one concentrates on development of the astral body.  This facilitates the experiencing of reality through psychic senses, which are metaphorical perceptions through the agencies of sight, taste, touch, smell, and hearing.  These so-called ESP phenomenon do not require the introduction of a new sense, but only this new metaphorical mode of apprehending through those with which we are familiar.  This plane of Path 32 also represents the beginnings of devotional mysticism.  Also included is the concept of karma, and the mating instinct.  The combination of these two leads to the concept of the soul-mate, who cannot be found until this plane is experienced.  Clairvoyance.

3. Causal Plane: The stability confered by Saturn through this path helps promote concentration, particularly in relationship to images.  These images arise spontaneously in the Astral Plane, and percolate through to normal ego-consciousness through this Path, with varying amounts of distortion.  Focused concentration eliminates fuzziness.  Both magick and psychoanalysis provide the means for focusing and following images through their transformations into an equilibrated state in Tiphareth (#6).  Insight.

4. Archetypal Plane: Space/time creates certain limitations or boundary conditions of both human physical and psychic existence.  Acceptance of these conditions and the form it produces are necessary for realization.  With persistence, it is possible to attain perfection through rejuvination.  There is harmony among the Chakras of the physical body (CNS and endocrines).  This produces a cosmic consciusness and a yearning for further experiences of soul travel on the path to God-Realization.  Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity is relevant.

        b. Seasonal Timing and Tides (Equinoxes and Solstices)

Introduction to YESOD, Sphere of the Moon

Yesod is the lunar world of the Great Mother.  The Moon exemplifies the notion of dynamic equilibrium; it builds a firm foundation of stability based on cyclic change.  This ebb and flow is characteristic of the Feminine Ms.teries and Lunar Magic.  Emotional-sexual sphere.

The Moon of Yesod symbolizes fertility of body, soul, mind, and imagination.  Its manifestation range from reflective and purely automatic impulses of generation to providing a source of inspiration.  This fluctuating world of shape-shifting forms is know in mythology as ISIS, the Great Mother who contains all otherr goddesses.  She represents the archetypal virginity of the feminine aspect of Godhead, its all-encompassing receptivity.

The characteristic experience of Yesod or the lower astral plane is a trance state of varying depth.  Most commonly, ego, memory and control are weak or absent.  There is dissociation from an ordinary state of consciusness.  If memory of the imagery experience is retained, it  may be misinterpreted or distorted, resulting in no effective assimilation into daily life.  This is the disrete state where channeling phenomena occur.

Receptivity is the keyword for Yesod, which in the Four Worlds is represented by the following:

1.  Physical Plane:  In the phenomenal world Yesod is characterized as electromagnetic fields, known by physicists to be the formative basis of matter.  In the human body, the genitals represent Yesod.  Instincts act on the body producing psychomotor automatisms, or the automatic gut-feel responses.  Subconscious micromotions also account for the responses of such phenomena as the Ouija Board, dowsing, and pendulums.  Astrologically, Yesod is the Moon or Luna.  Gareth Knight links Pan to Yesod, stating that "Pan gives the idea of archetypal strength which is characteristic of the etheric and of the action of the Moon on Earth."  Pan's appearance here also indicates his other manifestations including panic reactions or attacks, nightmare, guilt, and disturbed erotic involvement.  Hyperarousal.

2.  Astral Plane:  At this level one can tap the reservoir of life-force or pranic energy.  Kundalini is a physical manifestation of the astral form of Yesod.  The therapeutic practice of Bioenergetics resolves repressions and traumas releasing vitality.  This level of lunar consciusness includes one's personal reactions to the complex environment.  Yesod is a sphere of personal awareness.  The personality is a unique complex of emotions and thoughts.  This is the level of shamanism and Moon Magic--Wicca.  It provides no access past the Astral Plane.  Its negative effects include superstition, overemotionalism or reactiveness.  Astral psychism.  Independence; idleness.

3.  Causal Plane:  From the psychological perspective, Yesod is the realm of Imagination and Archetypes.  One may experience it through Trance or various Art forms.  There is an understanding of the contrasexual aspects of the anima and animus.  There is release from possession and enhanced control of emotions through employing the imaginative technique of personification of divine forces.

4.  Archetypal Plane:  On the highest level, Yesod manifests as dream experiences and divination.  This is the level of oracular prophecy.

 HOD, the Sphere of Mercury
(Reason, Intellect, Hermetism, Technology)

        a. Mercury, Planet of Intellect
        b. The Alchemical Mercurius

        a. A taxonomy of Altered States of Consciousness
        b. Jungian Typology Test

Introduction to HOD, Sphere of Mercury

Hod is the Sphere of the rational intellect, and its ability for logical thought processes.  In QBL, this Sphere is known as Splendour, the force through which man extends his will.  It symbolizes the magnificent riches and grandeur of the mental faculty.  Mental functions and thought work largely through the process of assication, for the purpose of relating that which previously was separate.

Hod represents the ability to communicate and peceive.  It relates especially to academic and intellectual matters.  Development of this Sphere enhances one's ability to communicate clearly and honestly.  You are able to transmit your messages and ideas to others so that they are received without distortion.  Multi-level communication includes intelligibility and gut-feeling awareness.

Since Hod rules logic, it also presides over our fields of philosophy, science and technology.  These sciences and their applications on a practical level categorize discrete portions of the great unknown for specialized study.  Adoppting the techniques and use of knowledge and skill helps us to function in a more effective manner.  The intellect reflects the tonal quality of an individual.

 1.  Physical Plane: Cerebral tissue and nerves.  Magical force, or prana.  The electrical charge traveling through the nervous system.  Hermes, or Mercury is the "chemical messenger."  Hod also signifies Synchronicity, which is like meaningful coincidence.

 2.  Astral Plane:  Hod represents the principles of relatedness, association, and interchange.  Fluidic thought-processes may bring revelations to one who seeks to know himself.  In this sense, Hermes rules the therapeutic explorations of depth psychology.  The Magickal Image of Hod is the Hermaphrodite.  The messenger of the Gods is this same androgynous Mercury who nightly brings our dreams.  He appears negatively in those who feel perpetually "misunderstood."  Truthfulness; dishonesty.

 3.  Causal Plane:  Hod represents the forms of all philsophies and sciences, but is corresponded with Parapsychology, in particular.  Because this area seeks explanations for curious borderline phenomena, it forms a link between "hard" sciences and the occult.  Hermeneutics, or the science of interpreting scriptures also comes under the influence of Hod.  Self-analysis.

 4. Archetypal Plane:  Hod represents the archetypal Trickster, which manifests alternatively as magician, or clown.  Thus, Hermes embodies the comic spirit functioning as a soul guide, enabling us to accept and laugh at our shortcomings.  Hermes, as soul guide, , also opens up the way to the hidden depths of the unconscious, bringing us the messages of the Gods.  Hermetic Philosophy began in the Third Century B.C., and revealed the "secrets of nature."  It discovered a network of sympathies and antipathies which is categorized in correspondences.  It is a Mystery and an initiatory transmission of that mystery.  It maintains that with the help of this special knowledge, man can "become god."  Hermetism is a revealed secret doctrine which communicates esoteric wisdom.  This esoteric knowledge ensures salvvation, not through an initatory chain, but through proper interpretation, application and assimilation of sacred texts.  This assimilation is equivalent to initiation.

        c. Aphrodisiacs and Their Effects

        a. The Feeling Function in Jungian Psychology
        b. Brain Patterns and Consciousness

Introduction to NETZACH, the Sphere of Venus

In occult lore, Netzach is known as "Victory."  It represents the dawning light of consciousness, and symbolizes the victory of light over the darkness of ignorance.

Netzach is the Sphere which embodies the inspirational force of the creative imagination.  It signifies the achievement of perfection in both force and form.  It also implies emotional perfection of the consciousness, through understanding of the inner meaning of physical processes (the sexual instinct, in particular).

Therefore, Netzach is functional in the establishment in the personality of values and ideals.  A purpose of spiritual development of this sphere is to learn the distinction between ideal love and human love.

Aphrodite, the beautiful naked woman, represents the Anima, or soul.  She is man's idea of the idealized fantasy, who would make his life complete, providing him with psychological wholeness through no effort of his own.  When this archetype is projected in human relationships onto a mortal woman, there is certain disappointment to follow, unless a mature relationship can be developed.  A spiritual goal of netzach is, therefore, the internalization of this anima projection, which then functions as a guide to the inner realms of the subconscious.

1. Physical Plane:  Attractiveness, beauty. Centripetal forces; that which pulls toward the center.  Internalization.  An ascetic life-style.

2.  Astral Plane: Emotion, passion, feeling.  Romantic love; in courtly love, one is caught in a medieval psychological attitude which confounds divine and human love.  Projection of religious attitudes onto the love one in worshipful adultation may end in an emotionally withdrawn individual who is extremely sorrowful and dissatisfied.  When the rush of being "in love" evaporates, one seeks to rekindle the dynamics of the archetypal situation through transferring the projection onto yet another person.  One has the ability to attract others, but not to maintain stable relationships.  Unselfishness; lust, promiscuity.

3.  Causal Plane:  With developing emotional sensitivity, one does not burden the partner by making her/him carry the projection of the Goddess/God.  We take responsibility for our own unlivied life of the soul.  We take up a disciplined relationship to the Anima or Animus; we learn to love both our ideal vision and our human partner, without confusing the value and function of each.  This brings an increase in stability to all human relationships.  Through commitment to an individual (with full consciousness of their shadow nature) there is acceptance of the mundane aspects of day-to-day life, rather than continual yearning to externalize the idealized vision of perfection.

4.  Archetypal Plane:  Netzach manifests the mental imagery of creative imagination.  It is inspirational in quality.  It represents communion with one's self and others.  It establishes patterns of appreciation and a value system with specific priorities, which encourage and maintain relationships.

        c. Trantric Lunar Resonance Meditation: Its Links with Tator and the Western Tradition

Introduction to XIV. ART, Path 25

Path 25 traverses the higher Astral Plane, which is the realm of visionary experience of images and symbols.  The Parataxic Mode is the designation given to this form of expression by psychologists.  It denotes using symbols and images in a unique context.  This is precisely what occurs in "Art."  However, in art the symbols and images are no longer exclusively private, but may be shared with others.

Art expresses feelings and understanding.  It is the fulfillment of sensation in an audible or visual form.  It is an expression of an archetypal process in relationship with life.  Art is philosophy expressed in symbols and imagery.  or the sensation function, art serves the same purpose that science does for thinking.  Other analogies for art include philosophy and psychology for the intuitive function, and the emotions of human society for feelings.

The characteristic procedures of the Parataxic Mode include archetype, dreams, myth, ritual, and art.  Art forms include dance, ddrama, music, painting, cereminial magick, alchemy, perfumery, sculpture, poetics, etc.

As "Art," Path 25 presents us with a new quality in our vision of reality.  This is the realm of metaphorms, where our brain images reality and the universe in its own structural terms.  This surreal vision attempts to portray the working of the subconscious mind.  In QBL, it is considered the narrow way between Death and The Devil, trial and temptation.  The artiste attempts to balance his inner turmoil through a transforming "Work" or "Opus."  History is replete with examples of this often painful process.  But it can be joyful also.

1. Physical Plane: Path 25 represents both a physical and psychological harmonizing or equilibrating process, in which instability is balanced through disciplined work.  It is a blending of opposites, culminating in unification and transformation through will.  It indicates the reversability or sublimation of instinctual energies.  Included are the performing arts, especially ceremonial or High Magick, with its blending of the energies of Sun and Moon.  This process is designed to establish contact with the Self.

2. Astral Plane:  The image for this card represents the exchange of male and female energies between husband and wife.  Sublime, regenerate love creates the "magical childe" which comes into it's own in Tiphareth.  It also expresses love for one's Angel or spiritual guide, without which no progress is possible.  There must be a surrender to the direction of the inner Master, in order to establish a connection with the Light.  Therefore, visualization practice is critical.

3. Causal Plane:  The formula of this path is V.I.T.R.I.O.L., Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultum Lapidem ("Visit the interior parts of the earth; by rectification thou shalt find the hidden stone").  This has nothing to do with the "hollow earth" theory, but means to plumb the depths of the subconscious by urning inward.  This represents the opening of the ego-Self Axis, as termed by psychologists.  It is living the high ethical standard required by the Self as preparation for receiving the Light of Tiphareth.  Increase in Self-knowledge.

4.  Archetypal Plane:  Consecration of the personality to the Great Work or Self.  A visionary mode is a grace conferred on the gifted artist.  The roots of poetry and painting lie in prophecy and chanting and sympathetic magic.  The Self imposes trials and tests to transform the consciousness of the aspirant.  This is True Will.  The transformations appear in the form of the I-it relationship, rather than the I-Thou of Syntaxic Mode (Tipareth).

TIPHARETH, Sphere of the Sun

Tiphareth is the Sphere of Beauty, and Perfect Equilibrium.  It is the gateway to the Causal Plane of Universal Mind, or the Self.  The translation from the Astral to the Causal Plane is as dramatic as that betweeen Physical and Astral.  It requires the development of a more subtle aspect of the Body of Light,
so the soul may experience that level of awareness.  The Causal Body is called a Diamond Body.

Tiphareth represents a comparatively high initiation for religious, or mystical man.  Here the entire life is dedicated to spiritual devotion, in a 24 hour-a-day ritual.  This initiation to a Way of Life is experienced as
a death for the ego.  It leads to spriritual rebirth and ascension to higher imaginal realms in mystic ecstasy.  The Great Work becomes the priority of one's existence.

The spiritual bud formed in Yesod, flowers in Tiphareth in Enlightenment.  Many systems describe this grade through various images; Self, Holy Guardian Angel, Philosopher's Stone, Universal Mind, Brahm.

1. Physical Plane:  Tiphareth represents the Vision of the Harmony of Things, and is the point on the Tree of Life of maximum equilibration.  This same formula is represented in mathematics as the Vector Equilibrium Matrix.  The Cube is a magickal symbol for Tiphareth.  The VEM is an octahedron-within-a-cube, which is also the atomic structure of the diamond.

2. Astral Plane: A contemplative life in harmony with spiritual principles becomes the primary ritual.  The magical images for Tiphareth include a magickal or divine child; a resplendent king, and a sacrificed God.  These represent stages in the Mystery of Death and Rebirth.  Tiphareth also corresponds with the Egyptian god, Osiris.  Initiation on the path to God-Realization turns one's attitudes upside-down.  Devotion to the Great Work; Pride.

3.  Causal Plane: In the Causal, the Vision of Haromony indicates that all spiritual progress comes through the principle of Love.  It implies the highest ethical standards in both behavior
and thought.  The Syntaxic Mode means one has a precise cognitive awareness concerning the relative value of mystical experiences, and has the verbal creativity for expression.  Thus psychology can express in words what mystics experience through intuition.  Syntaxic Mode includes Tantric sex, creativity, alpha states, etc.  It verges of knowledge Ecstasy, but is mainly inspirational in quality.

4. Archetypal Plane:  Tiphareth is the Royal Marriage of the Soul and the Lord.  The projections of anima or animus have been returned to their proper level in the unconscious.  The King and Queen are united: Spirit and Soul, distinct but conjoined.  The aspirant enters a period of exploration of soul by spirit for psychic fecundation.  This union with the Self, uniting all opposites is an illumined lunacy.

Tiphareth represents the halfway point on the continuum of spiritual development.  It indicates the ability 
to withdraw the attention from outside to inside and hold it there.  One contemplates the "radiant form" internally.  Self-Realization opens the beginning of the path to God-Realization through Grace, along Path 13.
