Tree of Life – Sphere 10

Kabbalah Root Chakra

Sphere 10 of the Tree of Life represents the part of Spirit that is flesh and blood, the physical body, along with the electro-magnetic “body” or energy-field which immediately surrounds it, and which is the animating spirit (energy-field) that “drives” the physical bodily “vehicle.”

The “deity” corresponding to Sphere 10 was called Geb by the Kamau. The planetary correspondence of this deity is the earth itself. It is at the aspect of creation represented by Sphere 10 that the individuation process, begun with the first Godly word of vibration, emerges finally as that part of reality which is tangible and visible.

Sphere 10 represents the physical body, flesh and blood. To the Kamau, Geb was the Erpau Neter, meaning literally the inheritor of God, and meaning more properly that the physical body inherits the qualities and attributes of all the deities: “as above, so below.” That is, the physical body “inherits” or reflects the patterns of energy organization already present in the aspects of spirit represented by Spheres 9 to 0. Every major organ or organ system in the body is tied to or governed by an aspect of spirit or deity represented by Spheres 9 to 1 of the Tree. The patterns of energy organization from Spheres 9 to 0 are imperceivable to the physical senses of the bodily vehicle represented by Sphere 10.

That the aspects of spirit represented by Spheres 9 to 0 are imperceivable to the physical senses does not however make them less real. It is these aspects of spirit, seen (or rather, not seen) from the vantage point of the bodily vehicle, that Western psychologists have come to call the “unconscious”. it is a concept that was known to and elaborated by the ancient Kamau thousands of years ago, moreover within a holistic cosmology that tied everything back, straightforwardly and unselfconsciously, to God, spirit, and the very purpose of creation.

Body, Mind and Spirit? As previously mentioned, the bodily vehicle is classed as an extreme polarity of the energy/matter continuum. Spirit, qua energy – or pattern of energy organization – also belongs to the same energy/matter continuum, but is of opposite polarity to body, or matter. Mind, the quality for which Consciousness and Will are opposite polarities, is, strictly speaking, distinct from Spirit, qua energy/matter; but as mind requires spirit as the medium through which effect is given to its Will, and even through which Consciousness merely be, it has become common practice in loose usage to connote mind also when we use the word “spirit”.

In common usage, even though the body properly belongs with spirit on the Matter side of the grand Mind/Matter dichotomy, common use of the term spirit excludes the body while including mind. The problem exists in the English language because of cultural ignorance about cosmological matters. In other languages, notably Sanskrit and possibly the Bantu language family, clarity on these matters is “hard-wired” into the language in a way exactly opposite to that in which confusion is “hard-wired” into the English language on these matters (pun intended).

    Great post. Western civilization has been intentionally confused about these matters. Great to see someone write about it, even if few will understand it.

      Thanks. The credit goes to the blogger who posted this first. It takes effort to undo the damage done by Western ‘education’. Why do you think that few will understand?
