Cubical Stone: Information.........

Written by Samael Aun Weor
http://gnosticteachings.org/the-teachings-of-gnosis/kabbalah/sephiroth
Sephirah is from the Hebrew ספירה, which means enumeration or jewel. The plural is ספירת, sephiroth.

The ten Sephiroth of universal vibration emerge from the Ain Soph, which is the Microcosmic Star that guides our interior. This Star is the Real Being of our Being.

Ten Sephiroth are spoken of, but in reality there are twelve; the Ain Soph is the eleventh, and its tenebrous antithesis is in the Abyss, which is the twelfth Sephirah.

These are twelve spheres or universal regions that mutually penetrate and co-penetrate without confusion. These twelve spheres gravitate in the central atom of the sign of the infinite. Solar humanity unfolds in these twelve spheres. We have said that the sign of the infinite is in the center of the earth, in the heart of the earth. The Sephiroth are atomic. The ten Sephiroth can be reduced into three tables:

1.A quantum table of the radiant energy that comes from the sun.
2.An atomic weight table of the elements of nature.
3.A molecular weight table of compounds.
This is Jacob’s Ladder which goes from earth to heaven. All of the worlds of cosmic consciousness are reduced to the three tables.

A Sephirah cannot be understood only in one plane because it is of a quadruple nature. Therefore, the Kabbalists clearly express the fact that there are Four Worlds.

1.Atziluth: the Archetypal World or World of Emanations. It is the Divine World.
2.Briah: the World of Creation, also called Khorcia or the World of Schema.
3.Yetzirah: the World of Formation and of the Angels.
4.Assiah: the World of Action, the World of Matter.
•••

Three Sephiroth of form are found in the Pillar of Severity (Binah, Geburah, and Hod).

Three Sephiroth of energy are found in the Pillar of Mercy (Chokmah, Chesed, and Netzach).

The Pillar of Equilibrium is between these two pillars, where all of the distinct levels of consciousness are found (Kether, Tiphereth, Yesod, and Malkuth).




The ten known Sephiroth come from Sephirah, the Divine Mother, who resides in the heart temple. The mantra of the Divine Mother is IO which is the 10 emanations of Prakriti, in other words, the 10 (Ten) Sephiroth.

Kether is the Father within us, a breath from the Absolute, profoundly unknowable to Himself. Kether is the Ancient of Days. Each one of us, in our depth, is a blessed Ancient of Days.

Chokmah is the Son, the atomic Christ in us.

Binah is the Mother in us, the Holy Spirit in us.

Kether, Chokmah, and Binah are our Sephirothic Crown.

The very beloved Father, the very adored Son, and the very wise Holy Spirit live within the profundities of our superlative consciousness, waiting for the supreme instant of our realization.

The Holy Spirit is our Divine Mother that dresses with a blue mantle and a white tunic of exquisite splendors.

The Mother holds in her hand a precious lamp. This lamp is the Innermost who burns within the depth of our hearts. The Innermost is contained within a fine and transparent glass of alabaster. This glass is our own superlative consciousness; it is our Buddhi.

The Innermost is the Sephirah Chesed, and Buddhi is the Sephirah Geburah.

The Innermost and Buddhi express themselves through the Human Soul.

The Human Soul is Tiphereth, willpower, beauty.

Therefore, the Innermost, with his two Souls, the Divine and Human, officiates on his throne, which is the cerebrospinal nervous system.



The Innermost is crowned with the Sephirothic Crown. The Innermost abides in his temple. The temple of the Innermost has two columns, Jachin and Boaz. Jachin is the mind and Boaz is the Astral Body. The mind is the Sephirah Netzach and the Astral Body is the Sephirah Hod. These two columns of the temple are sustained upon the Cubic Stone of Yesod. This Cubic Stone also serves as a foundation for the Kingdom, Malkuth.

This Cubic Stone is the Ethereal Body. Malkuth is the physical body.

Foundation

(Title-page to Scripta in Naturali et Universali Philosophia, 1653.)

Foundation (Hebrew, Yesod), also known as Generation, is associated symbolically with the generative organs. It constitutes the will-power that puts thought into action. Once we decide to do something, we do it. This is will-power. It is, therefore, the foundation of all action and cosmic existence. It is the generative power that lies behind all our actions and enables action to take place. In this sense, it is action. The ultimate action is the act of true love, and this is truly the foundation of the universe. It is associated with the lower self, the personality, as distinct from the soul, but is an expression of the principle Beauty in terms of the lower self. Victory, Glory and Foundation form a trinity relating to the desires, thoughts and actions of the person, and at their best they are love, understanding and service (or faith, hope and charity). Whereas Beauty signifies the act of love of the soul, Foundation is the act of love of the personality, the ‘mask’ of the soul.

Representing the Foundation in this Baconian picture is the cubical altar stone. It is white, signifying its purity. It is square, polished and true, on all its faces. It supports the world of Beauty. The world is a sphere: the stone is a cube. In this symbolism lies a great truth.
