Cabala Lesson Twelve - Part Two
- Gentle People,
The Divine Mind created everything in the Universe. This is the first esoteric or mystical lesson taught by every religion in the world. Every thought of every kind is a potential parent. Some thoughts will become people, animals, plants or things. Some will not.
Creation is a process. First you begin with a thought and you pay attention to that awareness and it becomes an intention -- a new awareness that you remember. You pay attention to this new awareness, revise your decision, imagine the possibilities, remember everything and build the belief that you can manifest this original thought.
Your process enters a new phase. The more you concentrate on this "thought," -- the more you reflect upon your own thoughts -- the more quickly your mind enters the World of Reflection.
The World of Reflection is the World of Five Paths. You will recall there are two short paths, two long paths and one longest path. To Review:
Path 4 - The Short Path of Logic and Nonsense connects the center of Sphere 2, your Sphere of Decision and Indecisiveness, to the center of Sphere 4, your Sphere of Mercy and Merciless.
Path 5 - The Short Path of Intuition connects the center of Sphere 3, your Sphere of Faith and Faithless, to the center of Sphere 5, your Sphere of Power and Weakness.
Path 7 - The Longest Path of Acceptance and Denial connects the center of Sphere 1, your Sphere of Conscious and Unconscious, to the center of Sphere 6, your Sphere of Harmony and Disharmony.
Path 8 - The Long Path of Inner Strength and Weakness connects the center of Sphere 2, your Sphere of Helpful and Harmful Intentions, to the center of Sphere 6, your Sphere of Agreement and Dissension.
Path 9 - The Long Path of Inner Peace and Turmoil connects the center of Sphere 3, your Sphere of Belief and Disbelief, to the center of Sphere 6, your Sphere of Accord and Discord.
These five paths that form the transitional world between the World of Air and the World of Water (emotions) are said to be the Great Abyss because once you enter this place you start feeling and stop thinking.
There is some truth to this. The more you reflect upon your own ideas and thoughts, the more emotional you become -- the more you are ruled by your emotions. The more your emotions take over, the less aware you become of your own thinking. Lack of awareness leads to lack of attention and lack of thinking about anything except your feelings.
When this happens you have entered the Great Abyss -- the World of Below. This can be a dangerous place of feeling worthless, helpless, useless, unwanted and unneeded. The Great Abyss is said to have no bottom. You can spiral downward for as far and as long as you want.
When you decide to become aware of your emotions, attend to them, figure out if and how to resolve them, remember them and believe in them and yourself, you are using the World of Reflection for your own higher good. In this case, your World of Reflection becomes your World of Above. The World of Above is a place of growing self esteem.
Spending time in the World of Reflection means traveling these five paths from the World of Emotions to your World of Air and back again. The more you use these paths the healthier you become both mentally and emotionally; and the wider these paths become.
When you feel out of sorts, down, depressed, angry, afraid or your self esteem is lacking, that's the time to follow the path from your emotion that leads to your World of Mind.
Down, sad, filled with sorrow or depressed?
Find Path 4 and change your thinking. Someplace you created a harmful intention or made a bad decision and you're blaming yourself. Get over it. We all make mistakes. Change your thinking and forgive yourself.
Angry, filled with rage, afraid or anxious?
Find Path 5 and change your thinking about your intuitive insights. Someplace you refused to believe yourself and your intuition. Maybe you thought it was your imagination. Maybe you rejected it. Get in tune with yourself and start using your intuitive insights, believe in yourself and have faith that the Divine will help you help yourself.
Out of sorts, don't like yourself or the things you're doing?
You have three choices: 1) Find Path 9 your Inner Peace to believe in yourself and the Divine again, 2) Find Path 8 your Inner Strength to overcome any poor decisions you ever made, forgive yourself and the Divine will forgive you, or 3) Find Path 7 to receive Divine Grace to forgive and restore you.
The secret is to use the Veil of Reflection to balance your thinking and your emotions. Thus you avoid the Great Abyss by traveling over it and not into it. Allow your emotions to empower you, make you Happy, Compassionate and in Harmony with the Divine, yourself, and everybody and everything in your life.
May you accept blessings, forgiveness and unconditional love from the Divine now and always.
