922Re: ZOHAR AND SEPHER more Eck fiction by Twitchell
- Dec 2 1:55 PMHi Prometheus:
That's a good piece of detective work. The Sepher/Zohar
People, Sephiroth/Zohar (Spendor) one. But we're also looking at a
couple of individual trees and missing the forest, here. Sepher,
Sephiroth, are cognates from the same root - sep, or sept - where our
word "seven" comes from also. Thr larger issue is that this is all
astral plane b.s. from the classical formula. That is, the astral
plane has seven levels, planes, or divisions in it. This goes WAY
back (originally) to sun worship (sunlight, when it's broken down in
the atmosphere by water (rain in the distance) or through the
convention of a prism, breaks down into the seven wavelengths that
compose it. Red, orange, yellow, green, indigo, blue, violet). The
cabala is pure astral plane b.s. used in the conventional way to try
to make of something of "God" or explain flux. This gets even more
involved when you go beyond the conventional delusion of "jivatma"
to "atma", "paramatma", and "adiatma". The "golden wisdom" Eckankar
uses and is keyed into is pure imagination. The "gold" color always
The thing is, it's all nonsense. All of this kind of
stuff but has been used over time by mankind to give itself a
collective purpose, develop cultures, and so on.
