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.

“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…”

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.

11:11 Rabbi Ba’al Shivah

Image

I am trying to figure out how to tell you this, without freaking you out.  Many of you have noticed a bizarre and unexplainable energy shift at 11:11 where for no particular reason you find yourself looking at the clock at exactly that time, over and over again.  You are going to have to meditate on this in order to unlock deeper personal meaning.

In gamblingsnake eyes is the outcome of rolling the dice in a game and getting only one pip on each die. The pair of pips resembles a pair of eyes, which is appended to the term ‘snake’ because of the long-standing association of this word with treachery and betrayal. The dictionary of etymology traces that use of the term back to 1929,[1] although it may be traced all the way back to the ancient Roman dice games, where ‘Dogs’ represented two ones. They referred to this as “the dog throw”. In modern parlance, it refers to such a roll in any game involving dice. Snake eyes also refers to looking one way and passing the ball the other way in the game of Taps.

Lucifer is the god of luck.  Lucky fire.  Not in a bad way in a good way.  When the moneyed powers feel that they have all of the cards in their hands and they can’t lose the god of luck tips the scales in his favor and in the favor of the righteous.  I am telling you this because this is what was revealed to me.  I kick more light than most people but I have been waiting until the correct time in order to convey this to you.  Because you weren’t ready for it.  The continuing worsening of the world situation and opened your minds, a little, and you are able to conceive of a deeper level of meaning instead of the happy horseshit being spewed by the fruity spiritualists trying to keep you in an unconscious state of malaise.

Each 1 symbolizes on letter in god’s name.  God is a reptilian.  He looks like a human because he is an alien hybrid.  Still he is very self conscious about his face, which is why he doesn’t like people looking at his face.  God, while being much younger and boyish looking, always looks like a youth of about 18 years of age in perfect health.  But he is self conscious about his face as it looks different to himself than it does to everybody else.  Also he is characterized by the way in which people consistently reject him and panic at what he tells them.  His relationships with people communicate to him that he is hideous and ugly.  He feels about himself the way he is treated by people.

Prosopagnosia (Greek: “prosopon” = “face”, “agnosia” = “not knowing”), also called face blindness, is a cognitive disorder of face perception where the ability to recognize faces is impaired, while other aspects of visual processing (e.g., object discrimination) and intellectual functioning (e.g., decision making) remain intact. The term originally referred to a condition following acute brain damage(acquired prosopagnosia), but a congenital or developmental form of the disorder also exists, which may affect up to 2.5% of the population.[1] The specific brain area usually associated with prosopagnosia is the fusiform gyrus,[2] which activates specifically in response to faces. Thanks to this specialization, most people recognize faces much more effectively than they do similarly complex inanimate objects. For those with prosopagnosia, the ability to recognize faces depends on the less-sensitive object recognition system.

Because he doesn’t think like other people he no longer listens to faces, being an empath and a sympath he knows what people are thinking and feeling, and he knows that faces lie.

Yaldabaoth[edit]

A lion-faced deity found on a Gnostic gem in Bernard de Montfaucon’s L’antiquité expliquée et représentée en figures may be a depiction of the Demiurge.

In the Ophite and Sethian systems, which have many affinities with that last mentioned, the making of the world is ascribed to a company of sevenarchons, whose names are given, but their chief, “Yaldabaoth” (also known as “Yaltabaoth” or “Ialdabaoth”) comes into still greater prominence.

In the Apocryphon of John c. 120-180 AD, the Demiurge arrogantly declares that he has made the world by himself:

Now the archon (ruler) who is weak has three names. The first name is Yaltabaoth, the second is Saklas (“fool”), and the third is Samael. And he is impious in his arrogance which is in him. For he said, “I am God and there is no other God beside me,” for he is ignorant of his strength, the place from which he had come.[23]

He is Demiurge and maker of man, but as a ray of light from above enters the body of man and gives him a soul, Yaldabaoth is filled with envy; he tries to limit man’s knowledge by forbidding him the fruit of knowledge in paradise. At the consummation of all things all light will return to thePleroma. But Yaldabaoth, the Demiurge, with the material world, will be cast into the lower depths.

Yaldabaoth is frequently called “the Lion-faced”, leontoeides, with the body of a serpent. We are told also[24] that the Demiurge is of a fiery nature, the words of Moses being applied to him, “the Lord our God is a burning and consuming fire,” a text which Hippolytus claims was also used by Simon.[25]

In Pistis Sophia Yaldabaoth has already sunk from his high estate and resides in Chaos, where, with his forty-nine demons, he tortures wicked souls in boiling rivers of pitch, and with other punishments (pp. 257, 382). He is an archon with the face of a lion, half flame and half darkness.

Under the name of Nebro (rebel), Yaldabaoth is called an angel in the apocryphal Gospel of Judas. He is first mentioned in “The Cosmos, Chaos, and the Underworld” as one of the twelve angels to come “into being [to] rule over chaos and the [underworld]”. He comes from heaven, his “face flashed with fire and whose appearance was defiled with blood”. Nebro creates six angels in addition to the angel Saklas to be his assistants. These six in turn create another twelve angels “with each one receiving a portion in the heavens.”

Don’t forget that the last god in the old 7 planet astrological system is Saturn, Cronos, time, he eats his children, everybody dies.  He is the last god of death (titans) and Jupiter, Zeus, yhwh is the first god of life.  Should the gods of life not perform their duties, the authority returns to the god of death.

That is right, the creator is also the devil.  The 4 letters of his name represent the 4 elements, a world at war with itself.  Contemplate the 4 directions of the cross without a center.  Love, justice, wisdom, responsibility, as you move away from the center you move towards corrupt expression.  In order for it to be loving, just, true, and responsible it also has to be all of the other things at the same time.  They are all connected in the center, in the source.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bellum omnium contra omnes, a Latin phrase meaning “the war of all against all”, is the description that Thomas Hobbes gives to human existence in the state of nature thought experiment that he conducts in De Cive (1642) and Leviathan (1651). The common modern English usage is a war of “each against all” where war is rare and terms such as “competition” or “struggle” are more common.[1]
That is what necessitated god’s having to incarnate in order to sympathize with humans.

Shin the Hebrew word for spirit is the fifth element, the Quintessence.  It is the authority of reason in man.  It harmonizes and coordinates all of the elements.  Yehoshuah, Joshua, the perfection of yahweh.
Tiferet (“Adornment”, Hebrew: תפארת [tifˈʔeʁeθ]) alternately Tifaret, Tifereth, Tyfereth or Tiphereth, is the sixth sefira in thekabbalistic Tree of Life. It has the common association of “Spirituality“, “Balance“, “Integration“, “Beauty“, “Miracles“, and “Compassion“.
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.

Tifaret is the Solomon of the tree of life, it brings all of the righteous people from all over the world together under the auspices of reason, making everybody equal under reason, aequalitatus sub ratio.  

Now contemplate this, in the parable of the prodigal son, the son that leaves and squanders his inheritance represents mankind.  While the son that never leaves represents the angels.  The reason that the son is welcomed back is because that is the purpose of his having left.  Life on earth, exists so that we can perform THE WORK OF GOD, TO BE LIKE GOD, TO UNDERSTAND GOD, TO TAKE IN ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD. 

Theurgy (from Greek θεουργία) describes the practice of rituals, sometimes seen as magical in nature, performed with the intention of invoking the action or evoking the presence of one or more gods, especially with the goal of uniting with the divine, achieving henosis, and perfecting oneself.

  • Proclus (c. 480): theurgy is “a power higher than all human wisdom embracing the blessings of divination, the purifying powers of initiation and in a word all the operations of divine possession”[1]
  • Keith Thomas: “Spiritual magic or theurgy was based on the idea that one could reach God in an ascent up the scale of creation made possible by a rigorous course of prayer, fasting and devotional preparation.”[2]
  • Anne Sheppard: “Theurgy, the religious magic practised by the later Neoplatonists, has been commonly regarded as the point at which Neoplatonism degenerates into magic, superstition and irrationalism. A superficial glance at the ancient lives of the Neoplatonists, and in particular at Eunapius‘ Lives of the Sophists, reveals a group of people interested in animating statues, favoured with visions of gods and demons, and skilled in rain-making”[3]
  • Pierre A. Riffard: “Theurgy is a type of magic. It consists of a set of magical practices performed to evoke beneficent spirits in order to see them or know them or in order to influence them, for instance by forcing them to animate a statue, to inhabit a human being (such as a medium), or to disclose mysteries.”[4]

Theurgy is the work of god. 

I can’t find any good sources online but the word theater comes from the word theory and theurgy.  Both of which have the greek word theos (god) enthusiastic, enthusiasmos, en theos, in god.
Psychodrama is an action method, often used as a psychotherapy, in which clients use spontaneous dramatizationrole playing and dramatic self-presentation to investigate and gain insight into their lives.[1] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychodrama
Psalm 8a

For the director of music. According to gittith.b A psalm of David.

1Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!  You have set your glory in the heavens.

2Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.  3When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 4what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?c 5You have made themd a little lower than the angels and crowned themf with glory and honor.  6You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under theirg feet: 7all flocks and herds,and the animals of the wild,8the birds in the sky,and the fish in the sea,all that swim the paths of the seas.

(Joshua and Kimberly, read Hebrews 1, the whole chapter and meditate on it.)
