A new Tree of Life

Post by neofight »

Hi. Well, after deliberating on the classic tree for about 20 years, and climbing my way up to Wisdom, and considering the lower animal nature, and how we are supposed to transcend it- I realized that the entire tree is flawed. The current tree is based upon an animal nature, and it doesnt attain to a Wisdom that portrays a level of humanity that we have declared to be more in line with knowledge and reason. Therefor I am making the following adjustments:

Strength will now be known as endurance

Victory will now be known as success

Splendor will now be known as gratitude

thank you.

I believe that somewhere in the past, our wise leaders decided that there is a difference between what Man must do, and what Man should do. It is because of this compromise that we have the blood spilled on our soils, and families going without shelter and food and water. This fundamental faith needs to change.

Honestly, I'm not that found of the the kabbalah and tree of life in general. I don't find it very helpful. I guess it was supposed to be some Jewish framework for spirits/esoteric stuff that the Golden Dawn borrowed for its own imbalanced usage. I know Dion Fortune and Allister Crowley were really into it. But, as for me, I think of it as mucky muck left over from last century. Sure, I'm sure some people find it really good, that you can put experience on some kind of chart or map, and I know what the heck it is, but in all honesty, I find it to be useless.
Part of this I guess is I'm not into vague ideas like ascension, and I just want practical things to make my life better.

Those terms are not meant in the mundane, secular sense. They refer to trans mutative states of being, often "alchemical" laws of creation. I would be hesitant to just change up the system, (although I guess whatever works for you?), 20 years doesn't necessarily suggest you have advanced in any direction depending, if you understand the nuances of rising on the planes, of polarity and the need for grounding as well as objective introspection (which has been sort of discouraged these days), and considering the subjective paths vs. the Sephiroth which are the same for you as they are for me. This is not meant to be a dig I'm just trying to show you that there is ALOT to consider before just dumping and re-working, I have been at it many years too but that doesn't mean I haven't been blocked before by myself or even by the laws that govern BEING. First you have to assimilate and master the astral reflections which are often illusions designed to trick you into a false sense of advancement, the ego rears its head and you are knocked back down, it is much more subtle than we often realize.

The original post is what happens when one has diarrhea of the mouth combined with a mere superficial foundation/framework from which to draw from.

Currently, I do not see the above summary as being hypocritical on my part.
