315. Gnosis part 6

Let’s quickly go to the story.

God planted a beautiful garden, the Garden of Eden. It had beautiful trees with delicious fruit – everything a person would need to eat. Right in the middle of the garden were the “tree of life” and the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil”. Then, The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. And the LORD God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die”. (NIV, Genesis 2:15-17)

So clearly there were two extraordinary trees in the garden,  and for a great part I kept something away from you. I spoke mainly of the tree of life but under the cover of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, how? By mentioning its circumference 576. Only once did someone say, I did draw it myself and I cannot get it to fit. And he was right, because that measure belongs to the tree of knowledge of good and evil, the one on the wheel of eternal life and death, while the tree of life is 480 in the centre of the garden, just as it is central in the Torah (with its 304803 letters).

I did not wish for anyone to eat of it, not knowing what he was doing. Too many are just playing with numbers, yes even those considered to be in the knowing, such as those large kabbalah centres. In the past I contacted several including the Sanhedrin who are involved in building the temple, and pointed out that their measure was incorrect. But I was told , who are you? We know best.

By now you will have come to realise that no matter how much you study, no matter how many calculators you have used up, not unless you follow the practise, to know thyself, the door will remain closed and the path hidden.

And how do I know? I was lost for many years in the wilderness too, like all of us seeking here, there and everywhere. Then I nearly died, not because I was sick or did do something to myself, but because I gave up, totally gave up. Here the first stage of revelation started, without going into details I had my first flashes of insight,  just had my eyes opened for long enough for some aspects to become clear. As I explained before, if you step into a dark room from a brightly lit place, your eyes will have to adjust for a while before you start to be able to see just enough to avoid bumping into things.

And over the time of many years all those little fragments added up to seeing enough to discover the path, like I told you in the previous articles, you might realise that you were identifying with a feeling and line of thoughts just to be led by another again,  in other words still wandered around in the cave.

The light wasn’t from the sun,  but from that little spark inside. That was just enough by then to find my way in the cave but at the same time strong enough to blind me for what lay behind it.

How does all this translate to the trees? Let’s look at the stars.

The star of David with its 6 points. Two triangles 120 degrees x 3 is 360, so anyone who would have paid enough attention would have realised it could never be joined to the other circle at 288 degrees. Why? Let’s look at the pentagram. 360 divided by 5 is 72, so 4 times 72 is 288, the 288 sparks ( degrees ) that fell (to earth ). Now the star of David is the heavenly star that rules there and the pentagram is the earthly one, just like we are. We are this physical body with a divine spark, but if we identify with this little I, then we are on the tree with two pentagrams.

Join the feet with the horns and you will get an 8 with the circumference of 576. Instead of 480.

So the two pentagrams, male and female, the tree of good and evil, the tree of knowledge and the tree of life. Whereby you have a physical body but at the same time in union with G-d. Now pay attention, take a look at the two pentagrams one showing Adam and Eve, the other Lilith and Samael. Samael (Hebrew: סַמָּאֵל‎, “Venom of God” or “Poison of God”, or “Blindness of God” Sammael or Samil) is an important archangel in Talmudic and post-Talmudic lore, a figure who is an accuser, seducer, and destroyer, and has been regarded as both good and evil.

Now let’s look at Lilith. She is described as a demon,  she is an icon who became one of the darkest deities of the pagans. Lilith is one of the oldest known female spirits of the world. Her roots come from the famous Epic of Gilgamesh, but she was also described in the Bible and the Talmud. In Jewish tradition, she is the most notorious demon, but in some other sources she appears as the first woman created on Earth. According to a legend, God formed Lilith as the first woman. He did it in the same way as he created Adam. The only difference was that in place of pure dust, he also used filth and residue. Traditionally Lilith means ”the night”, and she is related to attributes connected with the spiritual aspects of sensuality and freedom, but also terror. Lilith’s name comes from the Sumerian word ”lilitu”, which meant a wind spirit or a female demon. Lilith was mentioned in the Tablet XII of the Epic of Gilgamesh.

In the Babylonian Talmud, Lilith was described as a dark spirit with an uncontrollable and dangerous sexuality. She is said to have fertilized herself with male sperm to create demons. She is believed to be the mother of hundreds of demons. Nowadays, Lilith has become a symbol of freedom for many feminist groups. Due to the rising level of education, women started to understand that they could be independent, so they began looking for symbols of feminine power. She also started to be worshiped by some followers of the pagan Wicca religion.

For the purpose of this article it is enough for now about Lilith and Samael.

When we go back to the tree of life you can see where the two stars meet in the vesica piscis. The points of the stars join in degrees also 36 and 60. And often you find pictures of saints and of Christ being depicted in the vesica piscis and also as the sign of a fish. Now 36+60 is 96 and to refresh your memory,  when you draw it, you make a one (1) and then round it to make the 6.

With the nine (9) it is the other way around , you draw a circle and move to the one (1). G-d the ninth letter and the sixth letter, yes both in Hebrew as in English.

The Ancient Hebrew Alphabet was called “Aramaic” and it has 22 letters. The letters of this alphabet were also used as numbers, so every letter had a numerical value.

Here is the Alphabet: The letters which have the values 500 to 900 were added later in time in the modern version which the Jews use today. The gematria system where the letters have the values from 1-9, 10-90 and 100-900 is called the “Standard” system and it is the original system.

The Ancient Hebrew people could assign other numeric systems on this alphabet also. The most known alternative gematria system they used was the “Ordinal” system, where the letters have the values from 1 to 22.

The Old Testament of the Bible was written in Aramaic and the New Testament was written in Greek. This version of the Greek alphabet predates the birth of Jesus and is called “Greek Isopsephy”.

Note the two missing letters “Digamma” (6) and “Koppa” (90) which are no longer used in the alphabet. The digamma (6) letter can be found in the Revelation 13:18 verse of the Bible in the number 666.

Leaving and entering, 9 and 6.

Let me jump back to the previous part of gnosis and Enoch.

Do you recall the 3 ways to read and look?
