All parts received! What can I say except, well, er, yes! I would
probably think along the lines of the teragrammaton, ie, God, or
YHWH (God is a four-letter word in Hebrew :-)) as having the
sense and meaning of "Eternal Being" - not in potential, but in
fact. In the diagram of the Kabbalist Ladder [See my "Keys to
Kabbalah"] the representation reminds one of Ezekiel's vision, in
which the holy angels go up *and down* continuously. In other
words, the emanation is cyclic, like the days and nights of
Brahma or of the Urorobos (Snake with tail in mouth) which is
part of our TS emblem.
Our problem is in seeing and awakening to the fact that we are
included in that eternity, not separate from it. In seeing
ourselves as separate we could be said perhaps to be committing
the original sin (sin used in its correct sense of error,
blunder, or missing the mark). Separation from the divine is the
only real cause of evil. We (the human race) are very good at
it. Are we carrying a BIG load of Karma or are we carrying a BIG
load of Karma . . . .
