Building the Tree of Life


Let me share with you the sacred work of Tree-building or making a Kabbalistic Tree of Life or Jacobs ladder. It is easily said that something is ‘sacred’, using spiritual language that sounds very interesting. Yet, in this demanding and dedicated work of Tree-building, we generate a symbol from ourselves that litteraly comes out of Nothing (void on the canvas). This symbol is the Kabbalistic master glyph that expresses the Divine, Cosmos, psyche and physical realms or the worlds of Aziluth, Briah, Yezirah and Assiah. All these worlds and what they symbolize (Divinity, Archangels, Angels and the physical-natural worlds) flow out of your pencils and brushes. I have (again) experienced how it is the observing consciousness that is the ‘doer’ of the proces. We are moved by these inner works that are directed on physical objects. The worlds mentioned above become alive through us and find their way eventually in the manifested world of matter. God-Who-is becomes manifested and known through us.
This mystcal work of Tree-building is not just beautiful to do but brings an exceptional joy and peace from start to finish.
When the work of drawing, measuring, painting and sowing is done, the true work begins when applying the four worlds into my daily affairs again-

Grace to you all
