Jewish Mysiticism...
    #1953617 - 09/26/03 08:39 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I know *nothing* about it...
I'm interested in learning more.
Any info would be appreciated.
I gleaned thro a few books in the book
store a while ago, but didn't really resonate with
any of the books. I figured someone here can
probably elaborate.
Thanks :smile:

What you're probably refering to is the Cabbalah (also spelled Kabbalah). There's also Qabalah, which is the more Hermetic area of Cabbalah. Read "The Tree of Life" by Israel Regardie, "A Garden of Pomegranetes" by Israel Regardie, "The Zohar", "Sephir Yetzirah", and there are tons more books on the Cabbalah.

I study the QBL (as it's spelled in Hebrew), and I think it's an awsome area of study.

I had picked up a book on The Kabbalah but didn't
get a werd...

time I'm in the bk store...

I have this book and I would have to agree.

The book is around $19.95 US/29.95 CAN. You can borrow it from me if you want to, Lucid.

777 by Alester Crowley
Modern Magick by Michael Kraig
New Millenium Magic by Tyson
Kabalah: Key to your Inner Power by Elizabeth Claire Prophet

With the exception of Crowley, these are all beginner books

Israel Regardie is pretty complex for the beginner

if you havent seen the movie pi id recommend giving it a watch. not too much depth about jewsish mysticism, but it has a role in the plot.

LUCID:

dont you remember?

The Number/letter correlations in the bible
Father= 4
Mother= 40
Child= 44

The fibonacci sequence in the bible?
the golden ratio and spiral?

I mean, the tree of life isnt in PI or anything, but all that other stuff is classic Gematria

Did you know that I married her after she changed her name to Barbara? I divorced her when I couldn't stand her consuming any more of my soul. It is no lie that I placed an ebony and silver crucifix between us at the divorce mediation!

kelsey grammer's wife on "cheers" was named lilith & she pretty much drained the soul out of him :wink: ...

patron demoness of succubi, no?

"another fine myth"
~

~

ummm, a warning per studying kabbalah:
it is said that studying jewish mysticicsm is not for dabblers, and is not for unmarried, and is not for the young...
it is said that mental/psychic casualties can occur in those not adequately prepared & protected...
it has been related that "back in the day" 4 students of jewish occult lore penetrated to the third level of heaven via their efforts, and at the conclusion of their efforts, one had died, one had gone insane, one had strayed into theological error, and only one managed to stay the course... (it seems, another guise of "chapel perilous", yes/no?)
~
& kabbalah is related to "tree of life" (& tarot cards, & kundalini energy, & numerology, & gematria, & much else...) - so i have been told...

another fine myth and the other books in that series are excellent for children.  I benefited off them quite a bit.

as far as age and studying the occult goes, I would say the age of the soul is far more important than the age of the vessel :smile:
