The mystical state of what has now been classified as ‘entanglement’ could only be defined as a ‘wholeness’, ‘interconnected’ or ‘All-as-One’ aspect of reality. But this was found to be too ‘transparent’ for the minds of contemporary humans and so we find the birth of systems created by the human mind by which these relationships can be better defined.
[This blog officially excerpted from “Enochian Magic & Kabbalah“ by Joshua Free, also available in the Mardukite Year-4 anthology: “History of the Necronomicon“]
Before the time of humans there existed a race of intelligent life that was not nearly as fixed to the ‘condensed’ perceptions of physical reality that we might be familiar with. We look toward such beings today, based on our present recollection of history and the accounts made concerning divine encounters with humans, and we call them gods, angels, spirits…
The Kabbalah represents the relationship between the purely spiritual and purely material realms — which are altogether one and the same.
During this descent to Earth and the transition of ‘light beings’ into ‘conscious lifeforms’ on this plane, a “Brotherhood of Light” was formed for the specific purpose of guiding this massive move toward ‘direct genetic intervention’ – a means to create suitable bodies in a suitable “physical” environment, meaning the formation of genetic vehicles…bodies.
This is the standard by which we might come to better know the ancient mysteries that are before us, waiting for us to break their code. The Semitic or Hebrew Kabbalah is one of, though not, the oldest ‘map’ by which the human mind can evolve to understand how and why things are the way they are – a means of exploring the basic ‘pattern’ of all existences able to be experienced, since they are all one existence, simply experiencing itself in ‘fragmented’ forms.
The formation of any “Kabbalah” that is relevant will usually drawn upon a very familiar archetype, one that promotes an understanding of the cosmos on all levels – the pattern that is manifest in the universe as a macrocosm, but also the fundamental evolution of ‘intelligent design’ that can be found in the microcosm or fundamental ‘level’ of all being – and that is the tree, usually expressed as either the “Tree of Life” or the “Tree of Knowledge”, but always a tree…

GNOMONIC EXPANSION found within the pattern of tree-growth is expressive on not only the symbolic but also the literary ‘formation’ of the basic patterns of life, ever reaching outward, expanding from a ‘source’ and sharing a ‘fractal’ relationship with the ‘whole’. Such an understanding of reality has most certainly remained ‘esoteric’ or ‘hidden’ in the folds of what has become an otherwise ‘mundane’ human experience.
The “tree” as the “key” makes its expected debut appearance among the lore of the Mesopotamians. In the archetypal Babylonian (Mardukite) paradigm, it is representative of all of the things we find in later systems (such as those of the Semitic Hebrew and even the Norse Vikings and Druids).
As a microcosm, the “tree” is representative of the interconnected nature of all life and existence. This is a direct indication that we are all from the same Source and that all life and existence shares this relationship. In essence, all of the ‘true’ spiritual and mystical traditions and systems to later ‘bloom’ also shared this basic tenet as the foundation of their beliefs and practices. The ‘manifestation’ seen eminent in the cosmos and on the planet or in the course of a person’s own ‘spiritual progression’ could all be charted as some ‘branch’ or ‘pathway’ that has or had extended from this All-Source of which everything is entangled into!!!
“That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown…”
Okay, well, Linus and the Peanuts gang got it almost right. Of course, like most of the mainstream contemporary spoon-fed and ignorant human population, they are propagating the fundementalist Christian perspective of Christmas — drawn from a religious system which seldom admits its plethora of borrowings, from the baptism to the covenant of sacraments and holidays, none of which are original or exclusive to the Judeo-Christian tradition.
In Joshua Free’s underground literary masterpiece, ARCANUM, we read:
An ancient festival that observes the astronomical significance of the shortest day of the year on approximately December 21st, and being the darkest day of the dark half of the year, the Moon rules this solstice (whereas the Sun rules the Summer Solstice).
In most contemporary and ancient “pagan” and “aboriginal” traditions, the Winter Solstice is also recognized as the rebirth of the Sun-King or the Star-Child, as the strength of the Sun (and consequently, the length of day) begins to grow from this point of the wheel of the year until the summer solstice. For this reason the Vatican installed their own version of this “birth” as Christmas — a “rebirth” observed annually by billions of people on the planet. In many European-based traditions, the winter solstice is identified as Jul or Yule. The Druids held mistletoe, holly, ivy and other evergreens to be especially sacred during this time of year. These forms of life continue to thrive in spite of winter.
The “Yule log” is an ancient needfire tradition of burning a large log (often received as a gift or from one’s own property). It is burned along with a piece of the previous year’s log, and is allowed to smolder for twelve nights (until “Twelfth Night”). The festival is also called Mean Geimhridh in some Celtic Traditions and Alban Arthuann (“Light of the Bear”) in others (particularly Welsh, Barddas or Pheryllt-based). As an astrological event observed within the zodiac, the winter solstice occurs when the Sun enters Capricorn. — from ARCANUM by Joshua Free
Let us then turn to the words of the Gnostic mentors; here Samael Aun Weor writes:
“My brothers and sisters: observe the King Star in its elliptical movement. The sun moves from south to north and from north to south. The birth of the Sun Child is celebrated when the Sun advances towards the north. The Sun Child is born the twenty-fourth of December at midnight in order to dawn on the twenty-fifth. If the Sun Christ did not advance towards the north, the entire Earth would become a great mass of ice and all life would perish, therefore from the twenty-fourth of December the Sun God advances toward the north in order to animate, give heat and life to all creatures.”
“The Sun Child is born the twenty-fourth of December at midnight in order to dawn on the twenty-fifth, and is crucified on the spring equinox to give life to everything that exists. The fixed date of its birth and the variable date of its death always have a deep significance within all the religious theologies. The Sun Child is born weak and needy in this humble manger of the world and in one of those very long nights of winter, where the days are very short in the regions of the north.”
“During the time of Christmas, the sign of the Celestial Virgin rises on the horizon, and thus this is how the child is born in order to save the world. During his infancy, the Sun Christ is surrounded by dangers, since by all means its is very clear that during the first days the kingdom of darkness is much longer than light — his kingdom — yet despite all the terrible dangers that threaten him, he survives.”
“Time passes… the days cruelly are extended, and finally the spring equinox — Easter, the Holy Week — arrives, which is the moment in which he has to cross from one end to the other — that is, the moment of the crucifixion of the Lord on this, our world. The Sun Christ crucifies himself on our planet Earth in order to give life to everything that exists. After his death, he resurrects within all creation in order to ripen the grape and every grain. The law of the Logos is sacrifice.”
This cosmic universal dramatic orchestration is also mirrored in the Akiti (Zagmuk) New Year Celebration in ancient Babylon, observed when the Sun enters Aries (or at least did 4,000 years ago) at the Spring Equinox. Sacred space, temples and traditions from all over the globe revisit the symbolism of this very ancient passion play of the birth and death of the sacrificial Sun King — an archetypal observation embedded deep in the psyche of humanity. When the mass conversion to Christianity was taking place, the entire tradition and its customs were rooted in local “pagan” methodologies in order to make the absorption into indigenous cultures more widely accepted…
