Introduction to Torah for Atheists, part 1.

zohan_wallpaper1

Here is my introductory course to Torah for Atheists.  As I have explained before the people that wrote the bible didn’t take it literally, it was written in a kind of code, PaRDeS, a mythological history that can’t really be decoded unless one is familiar with cabala, and the tree of life.  It was written in this way so it wouldn’t immediately give itself to being understood by non Jews, because it was insulting as an alternative history to a group of people bent on global domination and hostile to any other perspective but their own.

The Quotes that I have selected are from the Pritzker edition of the Zohar by Daniel c. Matt all of these quotes in this piece will be from the introduction, not the actual text.

Tree-of-Life-Numbers-Qabbalah

“the sixth sefirah is represented by the third patriarch, Jacob, also called Israel.” “Jacob is in the sense the perfect human- a new adam.” “In balancing their own lives, the people of Israel imitate the God who stands at the center between right and left, balancing all the cosmic forces.”  

In the Bahir it states: “Sixth is the adorned, glorious, delightful throne of glory, the house of the world to come. Its place is engraved in wisdom as it says ‘God said: Let there be light, and there was light.'” [1]

Tiferet is the force that integrates the Sefira of Chesed (“compassion”) and Gevurah (“Strength, or Judgement (din)“). These two forces are, respectively, expansive (giving) and restrictive (receiving). Either of them without the other could not manifest the flow of Divine energy; they must be balanced in perfect proportion by balancing compassion with discipline. This balance can be seen in the role of Tiferet, wherein the conflicting forces are harmonized, and creation flowers forth. Tiferet also balances Netzach and Hod in a similar manner. In that case Hod can be seen as the intellect where Netzach is seen as emotion.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiferet

“Moses is the single human to rise to the level of Tiferet, to become ‘bridegroom of the sheckinah'”.  “When gathered in Yesod, it becomes claer that the life animating the sefirot, often described in metaphors of either light or water, is chiefly to be seen as male sexual energy, specifically as semen.” 

The reason this is important is because of the connection not only to Taoism but also to the Occult Philosophy of India.

Ojas is a Sanskrit word which literally means “vigor”. According to the principles of Ayurveda, it is the essential energy of the body which can be equated with the “fluid of life”. Those who practice Ayurveda say that Ojas is the sap of one’s life energy which, when sufficient, is equated with immunity and, when deficient, results in weakness, fatigue and ultimately disease.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ojas

From my perspective this is a rhetorical tautology and this only happens when their is a common origin.  It is a pattern that is identical to another pattern and therefore congruent.

“The biblical personality associated with the ninth sefirah is Joseph, the only figure regularly described in rabbinic literature as a tsaddiq or ‘righteous'”

Yesod, the foundation, also represents the penis, Jacob rejected the sexual advances of Potipher’s wife, this sexual good taste and purity and abstinence from unclean women is an aspect of the personality of yesod.

The sephirah of Yesod translates spiritual concepts into actions that unite us with God.

It is often associated with the Moon, because it is the sphere which reflects the light of all the other sephirot into Malkuth, and it is associated with the sexual organs, because it is here that the higher spheres connect to the earth.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yesod

“The Great Drama of Religious life, according to the kabbalists, is that of protecting Sheckinah from the forces of evil and joining Her to the holy Bridegroom who ever awaits Her.  Here one can see how medieval Jews adapted teh values of chivalry – the rescue of the maident from the clutches of evil…”

to learn more read here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Courtly_love

The Sheckinah is god’s holy spirit, the holy Ghost of the Catholic Church, the reason the RCC made it androgynous I suspect is because of a historical breach between them and the Jews.  It was a kind of retaliation, The Catholics expected the Jews to follow them and be more like them and give up their sovereignty.

Of further interest, the Holy Spirit was a concept that came from the Evolution of Philosophy, having come to the conclusion that a God must exist for various reasons it became apparent that god was also not in our universe but outside of it, furthermore, like a person sitting in deep meditation he didn’t move, anything that moves in our world is not god.  So god in the form of the prime mover unmoved, worked his will on the earth through his feminine side which was in fact the Holy Spirit or the Sheckinah.  This idea was also taught by the Pythagorean Math cults.

The unmoved mover (Ancient Greekὃ οὐ κινούμενον κινεῖ,[1] ho ou kinoúmenon kineî, “that which moves without being moved”) or prime mover (Latinprimum movens) is a monotheistic concept advanced by Aristotle, a polytheist[2][3], as a primary cause or “mover” of all the motion in the universe.[4] As is implicit in the name, the “unmoved mover” moves other things, but is not itself moved by any prior action. In Book 12 (Greek “Λ”) of his Metaphysics, Aristotle describes the unmoved mover as being perfectly beautiful, indivisible, and contemplating only the perfect contemplation: itself contemplating. He equates this concept also with the Active Intellect.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unmoved_mover

“The primary function of Religious life, with all its duties and obligations, is to rouse the Sheckinah into a state of love.”

As we continue investigating we will see they are talking about erotic love.

The entire Zohar appears to have been written by Moses de Leon.  He appears to have entered a trance like state which is common in Qabbalistic meditations, there are even descriptions of how to do it, in Qabbalistic literature.  Of further interest the author also mentions Jacob Boehme the creator of the Illuminati entering into a similar trance like state and writing “under the force of mystical inspiration.”  I personally, am not without my own experiences in this regard, and I am sure those of you familiar with my work will agree with that.  What is interesting is that this inspired writing and the congruence and agreement with other inspired writings seems to determine cannonicity to a certain degree.  One inspired writer can often tell if and when another writer is also inspired, and their is no enmity between them.

As further evidence that the bible and other Jewish religious books were written in a kind of code I offer this testimony:

“In this context, the Zohar may be viewed as a grand defense of Judaism, a poetic demonstration of the truth and superiority of Jewish faith.  Its authors knew a great deal about Christianity, mostly from observing it at close hand but also from reading certain Christian works, including the New Testament, which Dominicans and other eager seekers of converts were only too happy to place in the hands of literate and inquisitive Jews.  The kabbalists’ attitude toward the religion of their Christian neighbors is a complex one, and it also has come down to us through a veil of self-censorship.  Jews writing in medieval Europe, especially those promulgating innovative religious teachings that were controversial even within the Jewish community, must have been well aware that their works would be read by Christian censors (often themselves Jewish apostates) who would make them pay dearly for outright insults to the Christian faith.”

“…this was also the era when the Christian image of the Jew as magician and devil-worshipper was becoming rampant.”

I have decided that I am going to conclude here and separate this section from the next section which will discuss the tora as a philosophy and as a soul which confirms a lot of my theories on history, linguistics, and philology.

Rabbi Ba’al Shivah, the Hindu Hebrew connection.

Today I am going to discuss some of the similarities between the Hebrews and the Hindus with my atheist friends and explain some of my ideas on the mind and psychology for them.  Above we see the Hamsa, which was originally used by the Jains in India.  Even the word Hamsa comes from the Indian word ahimsa, which means:

Ahimsa (Sanskrit: अहिंसा; IAST: ahiṃsā, Pāli:[1]avihiṃsā) is a term meaning ‘to not injure’. The word is derived from the Sanskrit root hiṃs – to strike; hiṃsā is injury or harm, a-hiṃsā is the opposite of this, i.e. cause no injury, do no harm.[2][3] Ahimsa is also referred to as nonviolence, and it applies to all living beings including animals according to many Indian religions.[4]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahimsa

We see that the Hamsa is actually a stylized penis, masquerading as a hand, hands by their very nature are not equilateral, the Shiva lingam represents Shiva’s penis. 

The lingam (also, linga, ling, Shiva linga, Shiv ling, Sanskrit लिङ्गं, liṅgaṃ, meaning “mark”, “sign”, or “inference”[1][2]) is a representation of the Hindu deity Shiva used for worship in temples.[3] In traditional Indian society, the linga is rather seen as a symbol of the energy and potential of the God.[4][4][5][6][7]

The lingam is often represented alongside the yoni, a symbol of the goddess or of Shakti, female creative energy.[8] The union of lingam and yoni represents the “indivisible two-in-oneness of male and female, the passive space and active time from which all life originates”.[9]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiva_Linga

Shiva being the God of Death is also at the same time the God of life.

Even if you look at the similarities between the so called “horned alphabet” and sanskrit you see similarities.  Hebrew was a revolutionary language for a secretive people, it was simplified and modified from sanskrit making it easier to use, it was the language of revolt, Kabbalists have always been very secretive in their communication of revolutionary ideas.  

Origins of the word[edit]

The term cabal derives from Cabala (a word that has numerous spelling variations), the Jewish mystical interpretation of the Hebrew scripture. In Hebrew it means “reception” or “tradition”, denoting the sod (secret) level of Jewish exegesis. In European culture (Christian Cabala, Hermetic Qabalah) it became associated withoccult doctrine or a secret.[citation needed]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabal#Origins_of_the_word

Have you ever considered the meaning of Moses finding the Hebrew god on Mount Sinai?  

According to some biblical scholars[who?], Horeb is thought to mean “glowing/heat”, which seems to be a reference to the sun, whileSinai may have derived from the name of Sin, the Sumerian deity of the moon,[3][4] and thus Sinai and Horeb would be the mountains of the moon and sun, respectively.

Interesting that Shiva himself is a moon god, is it not?  I frankly think that the burning bush was marijuana, the Aghori shaivists smoke massive amounts of marijuana, and then meditate in grave yards.

Because the Jews were aware of psychology, when they were a warring tribe if you killed in battle you had to sit Shiva and meditate for 7 days before you were clean (kosher) and allowed back into the city.  My nom de plume means, Lord of Meditation, because in my slaying of the ego I have killed more than anybody else.  

The Hebrew word “shiva” means “seven”, and the official shiva period is seven days. The day of the funeral is counted as the first day of shiva, even though the practice does not begin until after the mourner(s) arrive at the designated location following the funeral.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiva_(Judaism)#Length_of_shiva

Shiva was a wandering philosopher, India was famous as being a source of wandering philosophers that went walkabout and took their traditions far and wide.  When he went to a strange land he would sleep in the grave yard because he was surrounded by an entourage of disembodied spirits to which he ministered, this is not bizarre in the Kabbalist tradition, many rabbis are known to have angelic and even demonic familiars with which they can be seen conversing. 

Below we see the Origins of the muslim epithet, “shayateen”. 

Had you been a cartographer and geographer working for the British East India company in the 17th and 18th centuries, you would have found all over India thousands of Hebrew-like place names with similar meanings in both languages as well. The map excerpt on this page shows a small section of ancient Seuna-Desa (Zion Land) in what is now Maharashtra (to right). At the bottom right of the excerpt is the city of Paithan, on the banks of the river Godivari. The Indo-Hebrews named the part of the river passing through Paithan’s territory Paithan (Pison, Phison), according to their traditions. In the upper left-hand corner is the city of Satana. According to the legends of the Yadavas (Indo-Hebrews), Satana would have made the folks in Sodom and Gomorah envious. The Seunas and the Satanas decided to resolve their moral and religious differences on the battlefield. The forces of “Satan” lost, but their defeat didn’t dishearten them. Eventually, we came to think of “Satan” as a being who lost the battle but not the war. The bible tells us that such a peace treaty hasn’t yet been signed between these two ancient enemies.

Later in that same article it says this:

Holger Kersten wrote in Jesus Lived in India,

“The relation between ancient Israel and Kashmiri can most clearly be demonstrated linguistically. Kashmirian is different from all the other Indian languages, the origins of which are Sanskrit. The development of the language of Kashmir has been greatly influenced by the Hebrew. Abdul Ahad Azad writes, ‘The language of Kashmir derives from Hebrew.’ According to tradition, in ancient times Jewish peoples settled here, whose language changed into the Kashmirian of today. There are many Hebrew words that are quite obviously connected with the language of Kashmir.” (pp. 68-69.)

24But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.”  Matthew 12: 24

The pharisees who were practicing the old Abrahamic law code essentially accused Jesus of casting out demons by the power of Satan.  Are you starting to see the connection here?  Instead of denying it, Jesus mentions the Temple of Solomon, and makes a reference to a house being divided against itself.  Solomon built gods temple by enslaving spirits and forcing them to do his bidding.  Then he turns it around on the Pharisees and asks them by what power they themselves cast out demons.  

It has recently occurred to me that their is a huge similarity between the phonology of the words Shayateen and Chaitanya.  

The Sanskrit word, Chaitanya, means ‘consciousness’ or ‘universal soul’ or ‘spirit’ or ‘intelligence’ or ‘sensation’.[1][2] It is the pure Consciousness or the cosmic intelligence, the consciousness that knows itself and also knows others.[3] It also means energy or enthusiasm.[4]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaitanya_(consciousness)

If you remember the Muslims hate the color saffron, which is the color of the robes of the Sarasvati order monks. Notice too the familiar phonology of the word Charlatan and what Mohammed said about Shaytan, he is the whisperer.  Remember that Mary Magdalene moved to France after Jesus alleged death.  Remember too that Proto-indo-european is more or less a fact.  I, being a phonologist, track the movements of ideas across countries and through time.   

The word comes from Frenchcharlatan, a seller of medicines who might advertise his presence with music and an outdoor stage show. The best known of the Parisian charlatans was Tabarin, who set up a stage in the Place Dauphine, Paris in 1618, and whose commedia dell’arte inspired skits and whose farces inspired Molière. The word can also be traced toSpanish; charlatán, an indiscreetly talkative person, a chatterbox. Ultimately, etymologists trace “charlatan” from either theItalianciarlare, to prattle; or from Cerretano, a resident of Cerreto, a village in Umbria, known for its quacks.[1]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlatan

Imagine if you will the Pharisees bursting in and yelling, “Shayateen!  Charlatan!  Chaitanya!”.  Remember that they reject thought, they reject consciousness, they avoid thinking as much as possible.  They fear intelligence.  

I am familiar with the word Chaitanya because my Shaktipat Initiatore, Gurumayi Chidvilasananda has a root word in her name.  Her name means, Energy = chit, moves= vilas= velocity, bliss= ananda, Sarasvati order monks adopt the suffix “ananda”.  The word Chit, energy, comes from Chaitanya, consciousness.  The words Chi, ki, come from this root as well as the words Chan and Zen.  

Now it is no secret that I think Abraham and Brahma are the same being historically, I am not the first person to think this, many others have come to the same conclusion.  If you observe closely you will find many similarities between the marriages of Brahman families and Chassidic jews, what is of interest is that the Aghori, the lingayats, and the Kashmir Shaivists rejected more or less the authority of the Brahman priest class, who are very much like the muslims adhering to the old Abrahamic law code.  The lingayats, were poets and mystics, they wore a shiva lingam around their neck and they had a personal relationship with god, and no mediator separating them from god.  They had their own nickname for Shiva, and they visualized him in a form that was sacred to themselves.  It was very much a personal relationship with god.

According to Heinrich Zimmer, whose work was edited and published posthumously by Joseph Campbell, there is only on Temple for Brahma, and the vast majority of demons worshiped Brahma.  This is of further interest when you consider that the Indian demons look so much like Muslims.
