I have recently come across this very cryptic piece of "knowledge", which owes its inspired truth to none other then Hermes Trismegistus himself :


The Emerald Table

It is true, without any error, and it is the sum of truth; that which is above is also that which is below, for the performance of the wonders of a certain one thing, and as all things arise from one Stone, so also they were generated from one common Substance, which includes the four elements created by God. And among other miracles the said Stone is born of the First Matter. The Sun is its Father, the Moon its Mother, the wind bears it in its womb, and it is nursed by the earth. Itself is the Father of the whole earth, and the whole potency thereof. If it be transmuted into earth, then the earth separates from the fire that which is most subtle from that which is hard, operating gently and with great artifice. Then the Stone ascends from earth to heaven, and again descends from heaven to earth, and receives the choicest influences of both heaven and earth. If you can perform this you have the glory of the world, and are able to put to flight all diseases, and to transmute all metals. It overcomes Mercury, which is subtle, and penetrates all hard and solid bodies. Hence it is compared with the world. Hence I am called Hermes, having the three parts of the whole world of philosophy.



I have looked for an explanation here and there but I am left more confused than when I started.

Is there anybody there that knows what it means ?

Surely if it were something useful for the future of humanity we would be told Gratis and without too much fuss.

So,

Is it just a silly puzzle no longer relevant to to-day's culture?

Is it all hat and no knickers ? (I.E. nonsense dressed up in clever words)

Or is it a " stool pigeon", a decoy to make us so intrigued to have to register in some Secret society or other in order to that they may receive additional financial contribution?

Any ideas ?

I've only read a little on this but you should be able to find a lot on the net by searching and you will get more than one view of course. "that which is above is also that which is below" is an amazing saying that is stll very well known today in todays culture. The kybalion goes over hermetic philosophy (www.kybalion.org...). I dont know if the tablet is a puzzle or bs, but I like it nonetheless.

I've never heard of the 'emerald table'. I was expecting that it was a typo for the 'emerald tablets' of thoth the atlantean when I clicked on the thread. I've got no idea what your posted paragraph means, but I suspect it is something that somebody just made up.

Here's a valuable commentary on "The Emerald Tablet" of Tehuti, spoken through His Bodhisattva Hermes Trismegistus:






Arcanum 8 - Justice







The following “is true, not a lie, certain and to be depended upon:

The superior [Eden, the Triple Akasic-life-breath forces “Aleph” that descend (through the letter Vav) from above from the Father, the Iod, Adam Kadmon] agrees with the inferior (Eden, the feminine sexual-life-forces of the Mother that return from Yesod through the letter Zain); and the lower (Akasic Solar fluid in the Semen) agrees with the higher (Solar fluid, the Akasic Fire from the Ain Soph Aur), to effect that one truly wonderful work (of Creation).

As all (created) things owe their existence to the will of the only one (Ruach Elohim that hovers upon the face of the superior and inferior Akasic-life-forces), so all (inferior or superior) things owe their origin to the one only thing, the most hidden (Son of God, the Christ in substance, Shaddai El Chai or Mercury of Secret Philosophy) by the arrangement (or permutation) of the only (Christonic substance of) God.

The father of that one only thing is the (energy of the) Sun (the Prana that as a Ruach of the Elohim enters through the nostrils into “Vav” the spinal medulla), its mother is the moon (the Akasa, the inferior-life forces of the sexual waters of the Mother, Aima Elohim that return through “Zain”), the wind (the seminal steam, the outcome of sexual magic) carries it (as Pranic Light, the Messiah, the Son of God) in its belly; but its nurse is (the seed of our sexual organs, where as) a spirituous (Sanctus dwells within the Philosophical Stone, the salt of the) earth (in the semen of the physical body).

That one only thing is (the Mercury, the Azoth of Secret Philosophy) the father of all things in the Universe.

Its (Divine Creative) power remains perfect, after (the life-force of) it (in the letter Vav and the letter Zain) has been united with a spirituous (Sanctus in the spinal column of the) earth (physical body).








Separate that spirituous (Sanctus or holy fire of the) earth (Shaddai El Chai in the physical body) from the dense (fluid of Semen) or crude (Brute Mercury) by means of (sexual transmutation or Sahaja Maithuna with) a gentle heat (without passion), with much attention (by praying to your Inner Goddess, the Virgin of the World).

In great measure (this Holy Fire of Kundalini or Serpent of Brass Nachash ascends from (Havah, our Mother, the sexual feminine-life-forces in Yesod, the sex in) the earth (Physical Body) up to (Kether our Iod or Father in) heaven and (through the letter “Vav”, the Spinal Medulla, by means of the Venustic Initiation) descends again (as “Aleph” the Triple-Akasic-Breath of life, the Ruach, the Wind of the Elohim carrying a) newborn (child, the Son of God, in its belly) on the earth (the physical body, Malkuth), and the superior (Sephiroth = Kether, Chokmah and Binah) and the inferior (Sephiroth = Gedulah, Geburah, Tiphereth, Netzach, Hod and Yesod) are increased in (the) power (of the Ain Soph Aur).

By this (sexual alchemical permutation) wilt thou partake the glory (Hod, the Astral-Life-Force of the Solar Light, INRI) of the whole world. And Darkness (Ignorance) will flee from thee.

This is (the Ain Soph Aur, the Ray of Okidanokh, Christus-Lucifer, the Carrier of Light, the Sexual Potency, the Cherub) the strength of all Powers. With this (White Tantrism) thou wilt be able to overcome all (Karmic) things and transmute (within your Psyche) all what is fine (from above) and what is coarse (from below).

In this manner (with the life-forces of El-Shaddai the Ruach Elohim above and Shaddai El Chai the Ruach Elohim below) the world was created; the arrangements to follow this road are hidden (within the Spermatozoa and the Ovum, or the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil).

For this reason I am called Hermes Trismesgistus, one in (life) essence (Adamah or Azoth), but three in aspect (Mercury, Salt and Sulfur or Aleph, Mem and Shin). In this trinity (Vav, Zain and the Serpent of Brass Nachash or the Kundalini that rises in the spinal column) is hidden (the mystery of the letter Chet or the permutation of the life-force of Aleph, Mem and Shin which is) the wisdom (Chokmah or Iod-Havah) of the whole world.

It is ended now, what I have said concerning the effects of the sun (the Ain Soph Aur through Iod-Havah). - The Emerald Tablet.

Curious. I may be thinking about some different "Emerald Tablets", but i thought that they were written LONG before Christ???

The Emerald Table

It is true, without any error, and it is the sum of truth; that which is above is also that which is below, for the performance of the wonders of a certain one thing, and as all things arise from one Stone, so also they were generated from one common Substance, which includes the four elements created by God.


Introducing the entire concept, it is stating that the world reflects the heavens; with the heavens being equal to the world in that what we deem on earth must also exist in Heaven, because nothing created can be more than its creator. The "stone" is the subject of this whole discourse as it is titled the Emerald table.



And among other miracles the said Stone is born of the First Matter. The Sun is its Father, the Moon its Mother, the wind bears it in its womb, and it is nursed by the earth.


The mystery here is not that the stone is born of the "common substance", but that it became a shining precious stone; an emerald. This is referring not to stones at all, but something deeper. The meaning is really hidden within the symbolism of stones.
The meanings behind the heavenly bodies and the wind is like this:

The sun gave birth to all matter in our solar system, therefore it is the Father of the stone. The moon was a secondary result of the formation of the planets, thus it becomes female gendered much like the story of a woman coming from man in the book of Genesis. The wind bearing the stone in its womb, regards the time from whence it is concieved to the time of its birth. It is contained until a time when it is shown as a precious stone. The winds refer to one of the four elements which occur on earth. The author could have used any of the other three, and maybe there is something to the wind by this, but each of the 4 have an opposite that battles with the other. When they are done, then the stone is revealed as an emerald.



Itself is the Father of the whole earth, and the whole potency thereof. If it be transmuted into earth, then the earth separates from the fire that which is most subtle from that which is hard, operating gently and with great artifice. Then the Stone ascends from earth to heaven, and again descends from heaven to earth, and receives the choicest influences of both heaven and earth.


Some of this wording is a little unclear as to what they are trying to say about the emerald being placed on earth, but it has something to do with the refinement of the stone and the end of the refinement because the precious stone was placed there. The reason is that the stone always was the Lord of the earth, but until it is shown, no one knows it. At that time, what is on earth becomes equal to what is in heaven, because the people see the stone and believe that an emerald can be born from common stone.



If you can perform this you have the glory of the world, and are able to put to flight all diseases, and to transmute all metals. It overcomes Mercury, which is subtle, and penetrates all hard and solid bodies. Hence it is compared with the world. Hence I am called Hermes, having the three parts of the whole world of philosophy.


This is the clear message of the whole text, that the stone and emerald are talking about a spiritual agenda coming from above to below and that certain individuals are set aside to be born of God and the earth, but the earth will not know them until they are shown to the world. Those chosen will become like Gods in the flesh and able to heal diseases and restore the balance to everything, including keeping metals from oxidizing, which is what transmuting metals means, a form of entrophy.

Excellent, Ben!!!

You explained that very well...

Remember the alchemists' perpetual goal was to turn lead into gold?

Heavy soft, easily marred, bodies into pure electrical conduits.

Fire and water = electricity

I think seeing the serpent and the seven headed red dragon says alot more about what they are talking about for anyone that understands the truth.

Cunningly devised fables anyone?

There's no such thing as "before Christ" in relation to the Maha-Kalpa, because Christ is the Light, the first manifestation from the AIN SOPH.

Notice that that which is in parenthesis is the commentary on the Emerald Tablet.


Many are said to have Incarnated the Christ long before the personality of Yeshua Ben Pandera did.

Such as Hermes Trismegistus, Babaji and Mataji, Buddha Shakyamuni, Tonpa Shenrab Miwoche, St. Germain, etc.

It's just that Yeshua Christ is the most elevated Paramarthasattya, and is the current Head of the Great White Lodge reigning from the Central Sun Sirius.






The Christ





The Adorable God Kristos (Christ) comes from archaic cults to the Fire-God. The letters P (Pyre) and X (Cross) are the hieroglyph which represent the generation of the Sacred Fire.

Christ was worshipped in the mysteries of Mithra, Apollo, Aphrodite, Jupiter, Janus, Vesta, Bacchus, Astarte, Demeter, Quetzalcoatl, etc.

The Christic principle has never been absent from any religion. All religions are one. Religion is as inherent to life as humidity is to water. The Great Cosmic Universal Religion becomes modified into thousands of religious forms. Thus, the priests from all religious forms are completely identifiable with one another through the fundamental principles of the Great Cosmic Universal Religion.

Therefore, a basic difference between the Mohammedan priest and the Jewish priest, or between the Pagan priest and the legitimate Christian one, does not exist. Religion is one. Religion is unique and absolutely universal. The ceremonies of the Shinto priest of Japan or of the Mongol Lamas are similar to those ceremonies of the shamans and sorcerers from Africa and Oceania.

When a religious form degenerates, it disappears; yet, the universal life creates new religious forms in order to replace it.

Authentic primeval Gnostic Christianity comes from Paganism. Prior to Paganism, the Cosmic Christ was worshipped in all cults. In Egypt, Christ was Osiris and whosoever incarnated him was an Osirified one. In all ages there have been Masters who have assimilated the Infinite Universal Christic Principle. In Egypt, Hermes was the Christ. In Mexico, the Christ was Quetzalcoatl. In Sacred India, Krishna is Christ. In the Holy Land, the Great Gnostic Jesus, who was educated in the land of Egypt, was the one who had the bliss of assimilating the Universal Christic Principle, and because of this, he was worthy of being re-baptised with the Seity of Fire and of the Cross, Kristos.

The Nazarene, Jesus-Iesus-Zeus, is the modern man who totally incarnates the Universal Christic Principle. Prior to Jesus, many Masters incarnated this Christic principle of Fire.

The Rabbi of Galilee is a God, because he totally incarnated the Cosmic Christ. Hermes, Quetzalcoatl, Krishna are Gods because they also incarnated the Cosmic Christ.

It is necessary to worship the Gods; they help their devotees. "Ask, and it shall be given you... Knock, and it shall be opened unto you."
...





...Jesus lived the drama of the Passion; nonetheless, he was not the only one who has lived it. Prior to him, some Initiates like Hermes, Quetzalcoatl, Krishna, Orpheus, Buddha etc., lived it. After Him, a few others have lived it. The drama of the Passion is cosmic.

Christ and Sexual Magic are the synthesis of all religions, schools and beliefs. The Perfect Matrimony does not harm anyone. All the priests of all religions, teachers of all schools, the worshippers of Christ, the lovers of Wisdom, can traverse the Path of the Perfect Matrimony. The Synthesis does not harm anyone rather it benefits all. This is the Doctrine of the Synthesis. This is the Doctrine of the New Era.

We, the members of all schools, religions, sects, orders, etc., would do well to agree on the basis of the Perfect Matrimony as the foundation for a new civilization based on the Wisdom of the Serpent. We need a new civilization based on the Perfect Matrimony. The entire world is in crisis and only with Love can we save ourselves...


...Jesus was a complete man. Jesus was not the castrated one who many religions depicted. Jesus followed the Path of the Perfect Matrimony. Jesus formed the Christ within himself by practising Sexual Magic with his wife. What we are stating will shock fanatics. Nevertheless, when scientists have the Akasic records of nature in their power, then these people will see that we were right, because they will be able to see for themselves the life of Jesus by means of ultramodern television (it does not matter what name will be given to those devices in that age).

The whole history of the world will be known through the Akasic records, the lives of all the great beings, the complete history of Cleopatra and Mark Antony, etc. Time is passing and the facts will confirm our statements.

During the days in which we were completing these thirty-three chapters of the Perfect Matrimony, we have been informed that the Great Master Jesus is in the western United States. The Great Master walks the streets anonymously and unknown; he dresses as any citizen and nobody knows him. A tremendous flow of Christic energy comes from him and is dispersed to the whole of America. The Great Master still maintains the same body that he had in the Holy Land. Indeed, the Great Hierophant Jesus resurrected on the third day from among the dead, and still lives with his physical body. Jesus achieved resurrection through the Elixir of Long Life. Jesus received the Elixir of Long Life because he was Christified. Jesus was Christified. Jesus was Christified because he followed the Path of the Perfect Matrimony.

We close these thirty-three chapters by stating that in the center of the Four Ways called Religion, Science, Art and Philosophy is found the supreme synthesis. This is the Perfect Matrimony.

What exactly are you saying here?


The Emerald Tablet is a scientific treatise on Sexual Alchemy.









Separate that spirituous (Sanctus or holy fire of the) earth (Shaddai El Chai in the physical body) from the dense (fluid of Semen) or crude (Brute Mercury) by means of (sexual transmutation or Sahaja Maithuna with) a gentle heat (without passion), with much attention (by praying to your Inner Goddess, the Virgin of the World).

In great measure (this Holy Fire of Kundalini or Serpent of Brass Nachash ascends from (Havah, our Mother, the sexual feminine-life-forces in Yesod, the sex in) the earth (Physical Body) up to (Kether our Iod or Father in) heaven and (through the letter “Vav”, the Spinal Medulla, by means of the Venustic Initiation) descends again (as “Aleph” the Triple-Akasic-Breath of life, the Ruach, the Wind of the Elohim carrying a) newborn (child, the Son of God, in its belly) on the earth (the physical body, Malkuth), and the superior (Sephiroth = Kether, Chokmah and Binah) and the inferior (Sephiroth = Gedulah, Geburah, Tiphereth, Netzach, Hod and Yesod) are increased in (the) power (of the Ain Soph Aur).




Much of this can be found within the Christian Gospels(as they are also a Kabbalistic treatise on Alchemy and Kundalini Yoga).

It is saying that we must stay in Chastity by praying to our Divine Mother(feminine aspect of the Solar Logos), as to become One with Her and elevate ourselves above the Dragon with the Seven Heads(the ego as whole, its seven capital sins and the thousands of tongues(subtle egos) contained within each head).

And that we left Eden through the door of sex, and is the same door through which we must return(by marrying and practicing Sexual Magic without ever reaching the orgasm; and by applying a 'gentle heat' so that we don't get too excited like animals, the latter of which would cause us to spill the Glass Cup of Hermes and fail in the Great Work).

Anyone who would aspire to walk the Path of Yeshua Ben Pandera, the Path of the Razor's Edge, which is the Universal Christic Drama, needs their MeM or Mary Magdalene, and every Mary Magdalene needs Her Yeshua(Yod-He-Shin-Vau-He)

Christ, or IOD-HAVA; is both Male and Female(Shiva/Shakti).

About Women, Thelema and the Emerald Tablet:






Woman's Saintly Predestination


"Love is Law, however Conscious Love;" "Love if the sum of Wisdom." Thus spoke Hermes Trismegistus, the thrice-great Ibis God of Thoth, in his Emerald Tablet. Love is the foundation of all that is, has been and will be. The woman, through love, can transform not only herself, but is also able to transform others.



Observe the sign of the Sacred Cross: two beams crossed. One is vertical and represents the masculine principle; the other is horizontal and represents the feminine sex. And in the intersection of both we find the key of the redemption.









In the ancient Greek Mystery Schools, a precious mystical act was mentioned, which was able to transform the world and Humanity. So as not to shock anyone, I will tell you the key in Latin: "Inmiscio Miembrum Virilis in Vaginae Feminam sine Ejaculation Seminis." In every case, in the insertion of the vertical Phallus within the horizontal Cteis, one finds the key of all power. Unfortunately, the only thing men and women have done up until this time is to take advantage of the crossing of the two aspects for animal reproduction.
