    On the Mystical Shape of the Godhead

    In QBL whisperings, one things that has always stood the test of time in keeping me facinated were the attributions to Godhead and their cross-cultural interpretational similarities.

    Though there really is not the time to get into this in any real detail right now, i'll write til' i have to go meet for this appointment.
    (needless to say, thoughts will be somewhat scattered and might possibly meander hither and yon.)


    Particularily of interest here are the angelic beings recognized as Sandalphon and Metraton, though these are only recognizable as archtypal imagery because of impressions made on another (lower plane) universe of existence.




    ON ANOTHER NOTE

    Oh, that the Merkuvah literature were not for the most part fragmentary and corrupted.

    Something of what does actually remain is a piece alluding to the Song of Songs, particularily 5.10-15. It is a picture of the beloved and of anything, this remains and is repeated in several different locations throughout:
    "My beloved is white and ruddy,
    Preeminent above ten thousand.
    His head is as the finest gold,
    His locks are curled,
    And black as a raven.
    His eyes are like doves
    Beside the water brooks;
    Washed with milk
    And fitly set.
    His cheeks are a bed of spices
    As banks of sweet herbs;
    His lips are as lillies
    Dropping as flowing myrrh.
    His hand are as rods of gold
    Set with Beryl.
    His body is as polished ivory
    Overlaid with sapphires.
    His legs are as pillars of marble
    Set upon sockets of fine gold.
    This is my beloved,
    And this is my friend,
    Oh daughters of Jerusalem.

    Actually, it was not until somewhere between the fist and second century that this Song of Songs became to be interpreted as portrayal of God's relationship with Israel. The allusions in this SOng are directly related to God's revelation of Himself in Exodus.


    Mannn,

    i gotta go
    So until whenever next possible for continuation and edit:

    God Bless us everyone.

    Nice thing about wandering hither and yon - you never know where you will end up! Spice is the variety of life.

    But as for "angel names" - why would anyone believe anything about that? They always seemed made up to me. Metatron? Where did that name come from? Who made it up? Why should I believe there is an angel named that?

    But there are aspects of the Kabbalah that I find fascinating and extremely useful. The categorical system of the Tree of Life, for example, with its Ten Sephiroth and 32 paths it integrates the Hebrew Alphabet with the Tarot, the 12 signs of the zodiac and the 7 planets of classical astrology.

    Yes, the Jews interpret the song in terms of Exodus if I recall correctly.

    I think a little more systematic presentation might be more helpful!
    • Skepticism is the antiseptic of the mind.
    • Remember why we debate. We have nothing to lose but the errors we hold. Who but a stubborn fool would hold to errors once they have been exposed?
