I have been contemplating the nature of Light and its role in our lives. Of course, we want a good amount of sunny days – especially here in the Pacific Northwest. But I am talking about the Source of Light. In the Mystery School we call it the EnSof and it is described as everything and no thing – everywhere and nowhere – the Limitless Light.
This is the Light of Creation. Genesis refers to it: “… and God said ‘let there be light’”. And with this, creation began. From here we can infer that Light is at the Beginning – that it is the Source.
If we overlay teachings from Kabbalah, and the Tree of Life here, we find this Originating Light above the Tree itself – in Ain, An Soph, and Ain Soph Aur – 3 distinct egg-shaped ovals that surround the Sephiroth. This Sourcing Light then floods into the top Sephirah on the Tree called Kether. Kether translates as ‘the Crown.’
The Tree of Life is said to hold the original divine blueprint for humans. So it can be said that at the beginning of our physicality we possess a Crown of Light! And this elevated, illuminated, actualized way of being is what philosophers and spiritual seekers have been striving to attain throughout the centuries.
I find it interesting that when a baby is born through the birth canal, as its head appears, it is said to be crowning! As the newborn takes its first breath, the soul enters, and each baby claims their crown of light! In other words, we each begin life owning our personal crown of creation – we are alive with Light.
The question becomes what has happened to our crown? Maybe even more important is what has happened to our self-esteem such that we don’t even know we have a crown? And if it is true that we have a crown, when and where did we misplace it?
The Universal Kabbalah holds the treasure map and instruction manual that can be utilized to assist us in attaining the original divine blueprint and reclaiming our crown. When we use Kabbalah for this purpose there are many benefits and gifts (Kabbalah calls them fruits), including remembering who we are, where we came from, and what we are here to do. This gives the true seeker the clarity of purpose needed to wholeheartedly engage in fulfilling their Life Purpose and Destiny, which results in true JOY and FULFILLMENT.
I invite you to contact me for a deeper discussion on The Universal Kabbalah and if this might be helpful and illuminating for your life at this time. A good place to begin might be the Tree of Joy 5-week series starting April 2.
Sending you Love and Light,
