If you take the most delicious fantastic soup, and passed it through a sieve that divided the parts, you would have salt, spice, sweet, bitter, etc.
Someone could taste any one of these parts and say “OH MY , this is DISGUSTING!”
And another may say, “but this is SOUP, soup is fantastic and delicious and life giving!”
And the first may respond and say, ” If THIS is what soup tastes like, I want none of it! I would rather starve!” and starve they might.
Or maybe someone would say ” Real soup does not taste in extremes. Real soup would not have such bitterness, such tartness and random chunks and pieces”
Then , perhaps a chef would come along and say “Ah, but it is my job in life, to bring the elements of this soup together so that they may mix within me and give me nourishment and strength”
That was rather abstract, I realize, but I am pretty sure you get my meaning –how God is perhaps fragmented on this realm, this world of matter. God is within all, a part of all, but some of that ‘all’ is very difficult for us to see as God-filled.
The paths of the Sephiroth on the tree of life, are Seven, and they tie in not only with the Ancient Planets, but that these Paths are also related to the Double letters of the Hebrew Alephbet. Each path being dualisms of a sort (when looked at as one of the double letters). Slowly they work their way down through the Sephirot into Malkuth, the earthly realm that we are on. In Malkuth these things are actually physical. Struck with density.
And here, it seems to me, that these bits and peices are all lying about. In their singular fragmented forms.
If we look deeply, we see that they are all interconnected by the common thread of the Divine, only faintly visible in this dimension unless we KNOW what we are looking at/for.
These threads can be touched, and the linked vibrations felt… sometimes this is noticeable by the true few that can ‘see’. It isn’t that they have special powers, it’s just that they are, somehow, able to grab that vibrating thread, and hear it’s tune, like an almost non-existent guitar string.
We are to be the Chef, all the emanations flowing down to us, and us uniting them, here on this physical realm.
I’m not saying ‘This is what it is’, but am sharing it because this is the truth that speaks to me right now. It is what I am understanding, and like all things, it is open to change and growth.
This is one of the reasons I find Kabbalah so very meaningful.
I want to unite all of this, internalize it, and climb back up the Tree of Life, back to my Home.
