Esoteric Notes

The Principle of Wisdom
Manly Hall, 1977

“The serpent is true to the principle of wisdom, for it tempts man to the knowledge of himself. Therefore the knowledge of self resulted from man’s disobedience to the Demiurgus, Jehovah. How the serpent came to be in the garden of the Lord after God had declared that all creatures which He had made during the six days of creation were good has not been satisfactorily answered by the interpreters of Scripture.

S-Ophiuchus

Ophiuchus is the Serpent-bearer, a large constellation located around the celestial equator, between Aquila, Serpens and Hercules, northwest of the center of the Milky Way. The southern part lies between Scorpius to the west and Sagittarius to the east. In the northern hemisphere, it is best visible in summer. It is located opposite Orion in the sky.

In contrast to Orion, it is in the period November–January (summer in the Southern Hemisphere, winter in the Northern Hemisphere) when Ophiuchus is in the daytime sky and thus not visible at most latitudes. However for much of the Arctic Circle in the Northern Hemisphere’s winter months, the Sun is below the horizon even at midday. Continue reading

The Sefirot (singular Sefirah) are the building blocks of creation, the archetypes of existence to be overtaken to form the traits of the new God, and the new values of Egypt. The earliest reference to the Sefirot is in the Sefer Yetzirah (The Book of Formation), where the ten Sefirot and the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet are together said to comprise the “thirty-two paths of wisdom” through which God “engraved and created the new world”. Subsequently, the Sefirot symbolism became a predominant theme in Sefer ha-Bahir, the Zohar, and all later Kabbalistic texts. Continue reading
