Where do I get started understanding the occult and its symbols?
>>34867492Unironically just use your imagination, nothing else's needed
>>34868273first advice is best advice, every cult likes to pretend their lore is oldest-truest-bestest. some of the older ones even manufacture artifacts of their construct lore.
>>34867492Probably a good workhorse for this type of correspondence job. ISBN 10: 0738711640
>>34867492The tree of life is anti-life, deception is a part of the game. For the left hand path lies are fair game.
>>34868307>t. american fundamentalist christian boomer
>>34868463None of those. Look what the ((elites)) do, they are all about the tree of life.
>>34867492bc im on a mission to restore sincerity to posting, I got you OP, despite being a fagStart here, with this series, number 5 is particulary good,https://youtu.be/V6-HSn_9A_gI would suggest sticking to texts or lectures, bc infotainment tends to take over this realm of research.If you would like to explore more a USA approach, stick to freemasnory, rabbit holes as you will see more of its symbolism relevantIm not a fan of Zacharia stitchin, but his work should be read, because of the impact of the theory. Start at the 12th planet.Then you should become family with basic astronomy and the mathmatetical components that shape its foundation. The Schmann Resonance will be good start
>>34868486might be too complicated for you to grasp, but just because something is popular with certain evil elites doesn't mean it's inherently evil. Elites eat, sleep, drink water, wear clothes, and live in reality (which is what the tree of life models) just the same way we do. What you're saying is on par with "Don't read a cooking book! Elites love fine dining!"
Read books. Secret Teachings of All Ages is a noobie classic.
>>34867492The Mystical Qabalah by Dion Fortune is a great introduction to the Tree of Life
>>34868307>>34868486When you study the occult you eventually learn that all these symbols and philosophies are merely tools without inherent morality. Your posts are equivalent to saying that coding is evil because hackers use it to steal information.
>>34867492>>34869228Also, this isn't a specifically occult-related book, but I recommend reading "Influence: the Psychology of Persuasion" by Robert Cialdini. It is an excellent book that teaches you all the ways "elites" manipulate you. It will also give you a better understanding of how the human mind works.
>>34869262All advanced views find morality moot not only the left hand path. If you follow the tree of life to the very top, you will be pleasing demons gods and doing sacrifices, therefore it's anti-life.
>>34869288jordan peterson level shit. the sort of surface level analysis that people like (cia)ldini will ultimately be inept and hollow in the face of real control.
true, higher morality, lies in rational. not your soupy fucking emotional association piss pool of cum and vomit.
>>34869293Imbecilic take. The Tree of Life is an archetypal representation of the Creator's universe. That is all. The practices you refer to are merely constructions of practitioners who use the Tree as a blueprint. Again, your statement is equivalent to saying machine code is anti-life because some people use code nefariously.
>>34868290This is true OP. Occult is just indie philosophy and religion. Which is all made up unless you trust random old men saying they had a vision.
>>34869308You are peak midwit. You cannot understand the more advanced forms of manipulation before learning the basic forms. Though they use different vectors, they are equivalent to the degree that someone with enough insight can deduce the advanced mechanisms from the basic. Please try to think more deeply before you post your "surface level" criticism.
>>34869331>The Tree of Life is an archetypal representation of the Creator's universeYou are falling for the first level of misdirection. Does it look like the elites / true cultists care about Creator? Power over others is their game and the tree is their system, what your occult books disagree? Oh no.
>>34869411Oh my God. You really, really don't understand. The Tree of Life is an archetypal representation of the universe, which a practitioner can use to interface with the higher levels of reality to do things that are extraordinary by conventional standards. You can use this interface for healing, to gain power over others, etc. In the same way, machine code is the way you interface with your machine hardware; you can use this interface to do whatever you want. How are you not getting this?
Stand Aside and watch yourself go by is a fantastic discourse by Manly Hall on youtube/some of my personal favorite books by him: Self Unfoldments by Disciplines of Realization & Magic: A Treatise on Natural Occultism. Lots of re-readability. in both.Besides that, if you are interested in Christian New Thought check out anything by Emmet FoxMy favorite: Alter Your Life
>>34867492These are the signs you normally see on the wall when you’re a jewy jew jew in jewland
>>34869411unless the you do the meditation you will not understand that it's is inherent as number. picrel
>>34869434i get it, that guy isn't going to because he refuses to look at anything but his own colon.
>>34869449i love manly p hall, i wouldn't go to him for kabalah, but i love his work.
>>34869465Yes I totally agree. Not completely lackluster. Gives a preliminary understanding that fires any student to search deeper. He's great.
>>34869331>>34869262>Machine code>Hackingare you a sockie tranny? Is that why you're so retarded? The tree of life has twelve fruits, not 9-13.
>>34869530Imagine not being able to understand such a basic analogy. You are not gonna make it.
>>34869434> Tree of Life is an archetypal representation of the universe, which a practitioner can use to interface with the higher levels of reality Holy shit you're retarded. Go ahead and use your Kabbalah to smite me rn. I'll wait
>>34869539It's a basic analogue which is why its false. I bet you love Dune? You dream of them making you a mentat? You pray for technocracy?
>>34869541>Go ahead and use your Kabbalah to smite me rnYour very post betrays a profound ignorance of not only the Tree, but occultism in general. Thanks for that; now anyone with even basic understanding and a desire to learn will immediately know to disregard every one of your posts itt.
>>34869546It's not false whatsoever. You thinking that the Tree is a system for summoning demons is the same as a boomer thinking computers are for sending emails. It's actually laughable that you have such a distorted understanding of such a complex topic, that you're completely oblivious to how much you don't know.
>>34869411I don't know about elites of today "using" the tree of life, but I guess there are a lot of powerful people doing weird shit including stuff that could be considered magic.The problem is culture or civilization.Ritual/Magic/Whatever was the first interaction between humans and Nature/God; the first scientific approach to life. Of course there where some people who didn't like the powers in everybody's hands. That's why exoteric religions exist. To keep the plebs in check. It's somehow like gun laws or calling in "experts" regarding scientific question and telling everyone to believe them.
>>34869581>>34869564Yes please show me how much Chicken Kabbalah for the trannies soul you've read and how "Archetypes are like totally everything maaaan" Just know your "religion" is so retarded that Yugioh makes them into card Archetypes. You literally play a childrens card game (Tarot) and assume its some random meaningless metaphor from thousands of layabout newagers. Real Kabbalah is the manipulation of words and letters. Not this drivel about eminations and archetypes.
>>34869449>wondering where is the USA glad I kept scrolling :)USA USA USA
>>34869622bruh, they were made into playing cards a long time ago you fucking retard
>>34869603Very boring, Not that deep. Jacobs ladder is baby shit. When you can explain to me why Jacobs ladder is important to silent hill, come back to me. >>34869581This is open for you to prove too, retard
>>34869647I literally name dropped tarot. Should I have said Tarocchi? I'm sorry but your Brain damage is terminal.
>>34869622>Real Kabbalah is the manipulation of words and letters.You literally keep proving my point; you think Kabbalah is a specific function of a wider system. You are missing the forest for the trees, and you somehow refuse to acknowledge it.The "manipulation of words and letters" is merely one of many means of interfacing with higher levels of reality. How are you possibly not understanding?The amazing thing is that you've probably read a bit of Israel Regardie or Aleister Crowley; so how the fuck are you not understanding?
>>34869667the literal 4 suites of the modern playing card deck midwit A-10, 4 face cards, one for each world.
>>34867492Try Mark Passio for a good outline.
>>34869694because they have an irrational hatred of jews
>>34869730At this point, I categorically refuse to believe anyone can be that willfully ignorant and obtuse without being a paid shill or blinded by hatred. I'm actually baffled by how confidently stupid that guy is.
>>34869541I see you speak more than you listen, your tendency to define what you do not know leads you to go in circles.You have a fear of the unknown and your greatest fear in life is realities outside of you.Your parents were narcissistic and one of them had a tendency to be overtly demanding, I could take it further but I think the only thing I need to spite you is forcing you to acknowledge your true character, that's how weak minded you are.
>>34869724The playing card deck is a tarot card deck moron. Tarrochi was what it was called first. >>34869694How does the Kabbalah relate to Tarot. >>34869764It's hilarious you can get this mad, it must mean I'm right and you have no idea what Kabbalah really is or what it is for. Namedropping Retards from the O.T.O. proves to me you're brainwashed by the new age. Which was Started in the 1800s. My traditions go back to the year 33. We are not the same, your projection is telling.
>>34869901Which retards did I name drop? You must have me mixed up with someone else all I did was use Qabalistic knowledge to determine obvious flaws in your character.And I don't know how I'm projecting when you're the one to speak more than you know.
>>34869901>My traditions go back to the year 33.Watch out guys, we got an interdimensional badass over here!
>>34869901he's bitchmade. masonic cunts steal the kabalah, dress it up like a clown whore, and then act like they know something.
>>34869943He was probably referring to my post >>34869694Some of what he was saying implies a rudimentary awareness of one of the many applications of Kabbalah, so I assumed he read Regardie, who has done really good discourse on that topic. But now it seems like he just read some article on what Kabbalah is, and now thinks he's some ascended master or some shit.
>>34869434What is the ultimate goal? I see it to be mastering life, self promoted masters of life, anti-life.>You can use this interface for healingCountless ways, it's like healing begs to happen.> to gain power over others, etc.Yes.>>34869452The negative side is limited to lower densities so they can be boxed in. In high densities unity has to be realized ruining their game. Duality only gets you so far.
>>34867492Occult means hidden. Different traditions have different symbols. Some are interchangeable, others are not. Hermetica is a good place to start.
>>34870581One who looks for power over others often has no virtue as an individual.
>>34870674True, but it is your free will right to choose. But if you violate the free will of others in doing so, you will accrue a karmic debt that must be paid.
>>34870698where does the spectrum of coercion exist in this?
