The Tribe of Dan – ROBERT SEPEHR

To the Germans he was known as Votan. To the Anglo-Saxons Woden. To the Norse and other Scandinavians, he was known as Odin. A Reuters News Agency report from Nov. 30, 2001: “The Viking god Odin may have been a real king who lived in what is now southern Russia 2,000 years ago, Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl said in a controversial new book … […]

Concerning the Literal Qabalah and the Methods of Gematria, Notaricon and Temurah

The Hebrew Alphabet, as previously explained, has a numerical basis, so that, in truth, every Word as well as every Letter is really expressive of a number. Again, any two Words having a similar Numerical Value may be said to have a natural affinity through their vibration. This is the basic idea of what is called GEMATRIA and upon it a system of interesting Correspondences has been built up, especially in regard to the Hebrew Scriptures and other Qabalistic writings, wherein a Word or even a Sentence may be made to disclose some hidden meaning (often concealed in that way by the writer) by finding the numerical correspondence between it and other words or sentences of like value.  […]

Hebrew Torah and Gemetria | Our Father, by Doreen Bell-Dotan

B”H

This is far more of the Truth about what the Hebrew word אבינו , pronounced Avinu, contains than what the Christians have been told. I cannot demonstrate the whole Truth of it, because that is infinite. I will prove the most important points – the inclusivity of the term that speaks of the entire Holy Family.

This demonstration, and the Hebrew *proofs* of what is said herein, should be shared with experts in Hebrew who can verify that what I say is what the Hebrew language says about this term. Try me. Consult with those who know Hebrew. See for yourselves if this is the Truth or not.

One more thing: The Hebrew word מלכנו, pronounced Malkeinu, which is translated as Our King, is equal to 146, which the value of the expression המלכה אמה, The Queen is Her Mother and קולי, which means my voice.

Contemplations …

“When the human race learns to read the language of symbolism, a great veil will fall from the eyes of men. They shall then know truth and, more than that, they shall realize that from the beginning truth has been in the world unrecognized, save by a small but gradually increasing number appointed by the Lords of the Dawn as ministers to the needs of human creatures struggling co regain their consciousness of divinity.”

MANLY P. HALL ON THE FALSE LIGHT OF NEW AGE SPIRITUALITY, PSEUDO/POP-SPIRITUALITY, SPIRITUAL BYPASSING/MATERIALISM, FALSE TEACHERS/GURUS, GREED, DISHONESTY, BLACK MAGIC RITUALS, THE TRAP OF ALLURING SHORT CUTS, AND THE CORRUPTION/MISUSE OF METAPHYSCIAL/SPIRITUAL TEACHINGS AND TECNHIQUES

Written in 1937. I might add that it has only gotten worse since then (by design) as we see in today’s marketing of New Age/pop-spirituality (incld. self-help gurus in the likes of Tony Robbins and anything related to “The Secret”), distorted esoteric principles/laws and spiritual practices:

“The field of popular metaphysics is now a battlefield of competitive isms. There is no code of fair play among the merchants of pseudo-religion/spirituality. Metaphysical movements fre­quently sacrifice integrity upon the altar of success. It was once observed by a prominent business man that it takes a great deal of advertising to sell an inferior product, and nearly all over-advertised pro­ducts are inferior.

Fakery and elaborate promises always go hand in hand. Fakery generally follows the line of least resistance. Nearly all people want to be beautiful. In this department metaphysics and cosmetics share the spoil. Nearly everyone wants to have a domi­nating, powerful, magnetic personality. Nearly everyone desires to be a citizen of distinction in his own community. The poor desire money, the moderately comfortable desire wealth, and the wealthy desire more wealth. The sick want to be well, the lame, the halt and the blind want to be relieved of their infirmities. These desires taken together are a fertile field for an individual with the exploiting instinct.

People fundamentally honest, in either ma­terial or spiritual matters, are not easily fooled. It is the streak of dishonesty in human nature that makes fraud profitable. People desiring something they have not earned are almost certain to lose in their effort to get it. It is the stupidity and cupidity of millions that sustain corruption in every depart­ment of society, and religion/spirituality cannot remain pure and undefiled while the men who make up the belief are in themselves corrupt.

Many metaphysicians have come to me with their tales of woe, of how they only wanted the Elixir of Life, the Philosopher’s Stone, and the se­cret of eternal wealth; that it had been promised to them in ten easy lessons at the ridiculously low sum of twenty-five dollars, and that they had been viciously cheated by a nasty man who could not de­liver the goods.

Universal law is as im­mutable as the seasons, as inevitable as the course of the stars, and no metaphysical maestro is going to alter these inevitables in ten lessons or in ten million lessons. The law of cause and effect is as in­evitable as day and night, as certain as the tides, and as constant as the ages. This law says that ‘as ye sow, so shall ye reap’. What you earn comes to you, what you have not earned can never be yours, and neither god nor man can alter the complexion of these facts.

There is no teaching more dangerous than that of special dispensation and special privileges. There are no such things in the universe and anyone claim­ing to be able to administer them is either self-delud­ed or fraudulent. If there be one thing constant in the universe it is law. This law is the hope of the wise, the firm rock upon which the informed build their philosophy of life. It is a fatal day for the truth-seeker when he lets some pseudo-mahatma talk him out of the realization of universal integrity.

Now let us see something of the truth of the situation. What are the material results of a life dedicated to a spiritual code of action? Of course we are referring now to a life. This does not mean a few weeks of instruction or ten simple lessons. It means exactly what the words themselves mean- a lifetime, year after year lived honestly and intelligently.

A man is not spiritualized because he reads books, or because he studies with some famous teacher, even if that teacher is bona fide. He is not spiritual because he knows spiritual people, or be­cause he recites a few platitudes morning and even­ing, or because he goes into the silence, or because he prays a formula, or because he chants Sanskrit, or because he pays dues to a metaphysical organiza­tion, or because he has been “initiated” into some mystical cult.

He is only a spiritual person because year after year he lives a spiritualized, philosophical life. There is an old saying common to the clergy, that the parishioners want to go to heaven on the coat-tails of the ministry, and there are a great many people who believe that their spiritual salvation is all worked out because they have joined an organi­zation with advanced views, or because they believe in Reincarnation and Karma, or because they love animals.

Some think they work out their eternal destiny with diet. Others strive to breathe their way into a divine state. Others use packages of ap­propriate herbs gathered by a “mahatma,” on the top of the Himalayas, sold at a dollar a package to the believers.

Religion [Spirituality/Esotericism] is not a fancy process of mechanical exercises or affirmations. It is not some­ thing that you-rub on. It is something you live day by day. Religion is the improvement of the self by a constant course of self-discipline, called the philo­sophic life. It is something to be lived, not talked about; something to be practiced, not affirmed. The great metaphysical systems of the past have descended to us in a fragmentary condition due to the centuries of theological blight that nearly de­stroyed classical philosophy. Pythagoras and Plato were metaphysicians, so were Buddha and Confuc­ius, but their metaphysics has little in common with the popular brand.

To study metaphysics in the hope of curing a stomach ache, or of attaining cosmic consciousness, or increasing the income, is to be guilty of sacrilege to say the least, or possibly better, absurdity and effrontery.

The ages have sought for truth. Hun­dreds of millions have lived to achieve it and mil­lions have died for it. Heroes, martyrs, sages, saints and prophets, and demigods of forgotten ages, are the priests of this great house. The gates of this sanctuary are to be approached only with reverence. The ancient road that leads to it is worn smooth with the footsteps of uncounted multi­tudes, and the modern metaphysician of today is so incapable of perceiving even dimly the immensity and sanctity of this science, that he confuses this di­vine program with a business mens’ cooperative luncheon club, or a local clinic.

The Ancient Wisdom offers nothing to a disciple of the Great Work but the opportunity to improve himself by a consistent program of intelligently directed effort. No individ­ual is ready for a religious, spiritual or philosophical life while he has to be induced into the process of being good by promises of material reward. Wise men study philosophy, not so they will remain young forever, but that they may grow old wisely. No man studies the Ancient Wisdom teachings with a view to in­creasing his personal wealth, because philosophy, if anything, will probably separate him from what he now has.

Philosophy makes men rich not in out­ ward possessions but in inward consciousness. Philos­ophy stores up treasures within, where thieves can­ not steal nor time corrupt.

The law and the prophets are misquoted and mis­translated in an effort to make them justify the fool­ish belief that God wants all men to be healthy, happy and rich whether they live well or not. As a matter of fact, the universe has no particular inter­est in man’s happiness, any more than man is moved deeply by the state of comfort or discomfort that may exist in a beehive or ant-hill.

In order to be happy, man must live well. He must be honest to his world, honest to himself, and conscious of the purpose for his own existence. If man keeps the laws of life, lives intelligently and nobly, and uses his mind for the perfection of his inward nature and for the assistance of others, he is entitled to a reasonable amount of happiness. In fact, if he does these things, he is happy and is not spending his time looking around for platitudinous solutions to his imperfections.

The same principle applies to the problem of wealth. Nature has not decreed nor the universe foreordained that man should be wealthy; in fact the whole theory of wealth is of human fabrication, for nature stores up what it needs and man accumulates what he does not need.

Wealth is the heaviest responsibility that an individual has to carry in this world, and right decision concerning its use is one of the heaviest causes of Karma. It is a con­stant temptation and binds the individual to a host of responsibilities and decisions. It takes up a vast amount of time and renders the mind confused and wearied and unfitted for philosophical study.

True metaphysics is concerned with universal facts, with the divine life of man that extends far beyond this mortal sphere. True metaphysics is life under law, man flowing through the universe upon the currents of divine law like a ship moved by the great currents of the ocean. The wise man does not desire to escape from law but rather aspires to perfect harmony with it. Any metaphysical teacher, therefore, who would tempt man’s mind away from the acceptance of those universal principles which sustain the world is guilty of the promulgation of false doctrines. There has never been any of the great Mystery Schools that ever promised power, enlightenment or security until after the in­dividual perfected the virtues within himself.

It must be evident that a group of people gathered from all parts of a community, with no effort made to discriminate between their varying degrees of undevelopment, can never be promised any spiritual advantage by any metaphysical teacher or organiza­tion. Metaphysics is all inward chemistry, philo­sophical chemistry, based on the principle: the bet­ter we are, the more we can know. If we are not anything in ourselves, it is humanly impossible for any being, human or divine, to impress upon us the realization of truths beyond the state of our own development.

There is no exception to this, there is no way of avoiding, evading or escaping this fun­damental metaphysical fact.

Any effort to force conditions which are not mer­ited comes under the heading of Black Magic or sorcery. A sorcerer is simply a person who uses the mechanical processes of the will in an effort to force out of nature things or conditions not merited under the law of Karma. By hypnosis, by the exercise of will power, by formulas, it is sometimes possible to temporarily here in the physical world force the semblance of unjustified conditions.

A man can steal by metaphysical means just the same as he might rob a bank or forge a name, or in some other harmful way come into possession of that which is not his own, but the mere fact that it can be ac­complished in such a manner does not justify the process nor make right the wrong principle which is involved.

By the malicious use of will power and animal magnetism the law of cause and effect can apparently be nullified for a short time. But again the mere fact that it can be accomplished does not establish the integrity of such a process. The only way in which any individual can honestly possess what he desires is to earn or deserve that thing.
Again there are no exceptions.

When some meta­physician stands up and tells you that he has a pri­vate way with the universe by which he can justify the misuse of power, only very foolish people will pay any attention to him. Black magic is not philos­ophy any more than bank robbery is ethics. If the whole problem is lifted to a metaphysical level, un­trained minds are very apt to lose sight of values and proportions.

Metaphysical black magic has flourished for many thousands of years, for there always has been and will probably continue to be for an indefinite period of time a class of people who desire to possess without the labor of acquiring by legitimate means. No one can be morally dishonest and at the same time pretend to be spiritual or philosophical. On the other hand it would be wrong to say that man’s spiritual efforts, when wisely and honestly directed, are not rewarded in a wholly adequate way.

Wis­dom bestows a security far beyond that of wealth, gives inward peace and outward patience. It clears the mind of innumerable false values that clutter up the reasoning of the majority, it frees thought to contemplate the real. Philosophy rewards men with a coinage of its own, it gives them that which they have earned and which the world cannot take from them.

Wisdom is its own reward and those who possess it can never be humiliated, impoverished or degraded. Wisdom is not of this world but of the secret world that lies behind. The rewards of wisdom are not of this world but also of that secret place which is the abode of wisdom.

Wise men re­tire from worldliness to dwell in the presence of truth and in this achieve the rational end for which the human fabric was devised. Hence we cannot say that the quest for truth is all struggle and no result, for with each small gain we make within ourselves there is an appropriate extension of consciousness and enlightenment in our natures. The only thing is that we must learn not to think of philosophy in terms of dollars and cents, of real estate and of mortgages. Philosophy does not pay us in dollars because they are not of the world of philosophy.

Man has an erroneous idea that by unfolding consciousness he can become one of the princes of the earth, possessing all material things and an object of universal admiration.

Religion/Spirituality is not super-salesmanship, nor is it a substitute for the doc­tor, the dentist and the grocer. The work of religion is to give man inner character, not outer opulence. It often follows that man’s material conditions are improved by his religion, but it also frequently fol­lows that materially he remains an insignificant figure. It is a terrible mistake to use spiritual means in an effort to accomplish material ends. It is a dis­tinct prostitution of that which is too fine and too noble to be so perverted and contaminated.

The honest-minded metaphysician should avoid, as he would the plague, teachers and teachings which promise him freedom from the physical responsibili­ties of life and the famous “peace, power and plenty” psychology of the inflated 20’s.

These problems affect the beginner who must seek for truth through one of those jarring sects that make up the metaphysical-religious field of today. It may be a disappointment to some to realize that religion as aphorism or platitude is not a substitute for living, working and thinking, but this discovery must finally be made, once made, becomes the guiding star in the quest for real and permanent values.

Gone are the noble mas­ters of that elder day. Only their shadows have de­scended to us, a few fragments of their words, a story, a fable. These alone bind us to the great philosophical institutions of the past. We live in a material generation and our minds have become used to the idea of interpreting everything on a cash basis. The abstract wealth of beauty, of dream, of vision, of hope and aspiration, of ethics and logic­ all this is beyond the appreciation of the average man of today.

The underlying materialistic psychology of the age contributes much to religious fraud. We at­tempt to establish our theologies on the profit sys­tem. The whole world today is envisioning a period to come when money will not be the sovereign factor in our thoughts and lives. We are beginning to realize the limitations of wealth and that money is only useful to the degree that it can contribute to our opportun­ity to improve our inward selves. Today money can secure leisure but cannot guarantee the intelligent use of leisure. It can purchase education but education is bankrupt as far as ethical and aesthetic values are concerned.

What all men are really seeking is some form of inner contentment or tranquillity that can give them courage over outer circumstances. Philos­ophy bestows the strength of right decision, it gives resistance to temptation, and leveling all extremes of action, reduces wealth and poverty to a common state, elevating only truth to a position of first importance.

We all desire to be better than we are. There are millions of people in this country who want to understand the principles of the mystic life. In their hearts these people are willing but their viewpoints are distorted by false teachings and in­ adequate understanding. To these people must come the realization that honesty is the beginning of wis­dom and that without honesty no great spirituality can be accomplished.

Honesty should have its be­ginning in the realization that we have no right to anything we have not earned. What we have we must use wisely, what we have not we must earn. All the theological pray­ers of the ages put together have not the constructive power of one nobly executed action or one profound­ly realized truth. To pray for things we have not earned is dishonest; to pray to be relieved of evils we have not mastered is dishonest; to desire anything that is not merited is unphilosophical.

The competition of creeds may leave us upon the horns of a dilemma, but of one thing we can be sure, regardless of our creeds or our beliefs-the spiritual life begins with right action. Honesty is the first step towards truth. Self-control, inward tranquillity, detachment from possession, bal­ance of emotion-all these virtues are absolutely necessary to the understanding of any religious, spiritual or philosophical system.”
