What does yours mean??
The Pyramid at the bottom has the god Anubis to the left, and Thoth, symbolized by the Ibis. Between Anubis and Thoth is a dung beetle, symbolized
Khepri - an Eyptian solar deity, an aspect of Ra associated with the rising of the Sun. This metaphorically presents Egypts wisdom as being focused on
the self. Thoth - wisdom, combined with Anubis - god of the afterlife, being regulated by the wisdom of Khepri - or Cosmic Order, feeds mans sense of
self importance. This is presented as a lower wisdom. This image occurs at the bottom of the picture to indicate the subjective perspective; mans
wisdom being nothing more then the objectifying of the subjective, transforming reality as it is currently known, into the only reality there can ever
be. This perspective ignores Gods complete mastery over creation, from the highest worlds, to this world, and the infinite nothingness beyond. As long
as we exist in this frame, we, like God, are individualized. But unlike God, we, human mortals, individualized physical beings, will forever be unable
to understand the complexities of the world around us. We will forever be separated from that nothingness, which nonetheless masters every aspect of
The lower Pyramid of Egypt is transmorped into the Menorah at the top, through
the influence of the two tablets in between.
Two stylized stone tablets; the one on the right says "I am the Lord", and the one on the left says "Your God...Who took you out of the land of Egypt,
out of the house of bondage".
The right symbolizes proximity and closeness. Anochi Adonai (the two yods representing the tetragrammaton) is on the right, because it is the most
immanent and focal truth. "I am" brings humanity into a mode of reality beyond its perception of "I" - the ego. YHVH is the name of God, which means
"being". We exist within his being, in his being, and our inextricably part of his being; whether in the deep nothingness (Ein Sof), or cosmic unity -
EHYEH, or in this world, YHVH and Elohim, the same power unites it all. It is one reality, experienced in different existential dimensions. All human
beings who live in this world recieve his or hers point of reference, in how to live
, from the name YHVH. This particular name,
kabbalistically, implies the created mode of divine order. Mankind is to serve this name, in order to enter the being of existence, and so be at
complete oneness; between each other, created reality, and with God. All, despite their manifestations, working within a completely harmonized whole.
The left tablet which says, "Your God...Who took you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage".
The left is associated with physicality, and so the "land of Egypt", the house of bondage. It is the ego, which suffers. Eloheka, your God, refers to
Elohim. Which is the powers and phenomena of nature. These two names are often combined to refer to their oneness. Nature, that is, both physical and
spiritual phenomena, occurs though the name Elohim. YHVH, is the spiritual Tiferet - the harmony of existence, which must be reflected in human
society for true peace to endure. This force, acts through
the contraction of the name Elohim, and thus enables the soul united with this name
complete power over the creation., through his own will, imagination, thought and emotion.
The birds are Cherubim, holy emotions which bring the heart - and the cosmos - up to the World above.
The 7 pronged Menorah symbolizes the sanctification of physical reality through the influence of the - Cherubim - holy emotions. 7 corresponds, as is
well known, to limited reality. These are the 7 sefiroth, Chesed through Malkuth which govern reality. ..
