Shekinah Glory (1)

Va avertizez de la inceput ca atat in acest post cat si in cele urmatoare vor fi prezentate anumite lucruri care s-ar putea sa va afecteze intr-un fel sau altul. Incercati sa ganditi lucrurile la rece si sa va detasati daca puteti. Sa nu intelegeti ca eu le prezit cu placere. O fac din necesitate si multe dintre acestea imi intorc stomacul pe dos. Vreau doar sa demasc aceasta mizerie de sincretism religios spre care ne indreptam si modul in care crestinismul este invadat cu tot felul de invataturi pagane. Daca posturile de pana acum nu v-au convins ca a fi neutru nu inseamna a fi echilibrat, sper ca cele care urmeaza va vor convinge pentru totdeauna sa sustineti demascarea acestor nenorociri care amagesc pana si pe cei alesi. La fel cum Dumnezeu vrea ca noi sa ne ingrijim de vaduve si de orfani, la fel este datoria noastra sa demascam invataturile false. Dumnezeu se ingrijeste de oameni si folosindu-se de noi. Dumnezeu ne-a dat Cuvantul Lui, ne-a dat Duhul Sfant si ne-a dat intelepciune pentru a putea realiza acest lucru.

Inainte sa parcurgeti citatele pe car le voi da mai jos ar trebui sa va familiarizati cu conceptul cabalistic de “Pomul vietii“. Eventual sa parcurgeti si acest post. In lumea “evanghelica” conceptul “Shekinah” este inteles de catre unii crestini ca si “duhul sfant” iar “Shekinah glory” reprezinta “prezenta lui dumnezeu manifestata” avand o conotatie feminina. Care dumnezeu ramane sa descoperim… In acest post cat si in cele ce urmeaza vom arata ca acest termen “Shekinah glory” este complet nebiblic (desi conceptul de “prezenta lui Dumnezeu” este biblic) si vom incerca sa intelegem ce spirit se ascunde in spatele acestei teorii cabalistice despre “Shekinah glory”.

1. Shekinah – The Feminine Presence of God

The interlinking between Kabbalah and Alchemy is so prominent that it is nearly impossible to decipher many of the older western alchemical writings without an intimate knowledge of Kabbalah. So, what role does Kabbalah ascribe to the Feminine? According to Kabbalistic philosophy, the role that the Feminine plays in the process of creation and transformation is venerated to such a pristine place that many Kabbalistic customs are derived from these teachings. To the Kabbalist, honoring the Feminine is of the utmost importance. To the Kabbalist, the role of the Feminine is clearly distinguished. In the Kabbalah, the name of this Divine Feminine is the Shekinah, which means ‘indwelling’ and refers to the Presence or Soul of God that is with us in the world. In fact, whenever someone feels as though God is present, Kabbalists would say it is actually the Shekinah. This Shekinah, though, is not merely just an aspect of God, She is a Divine Being of Her own right.

2. Shekinah and Creation

Kabbalah teaches that before the beginning was the En Sof, the Source of all things. En Sof is everything and nothing…It is all potential yet nothing manifested…It has no beginning and no end…It is neither masculine nor feminine, and yet both at the same time. Alchemically speaking, one might see the En Sof as the One Mind, the One Thing, the Prima Materia, etc all rolled into One.

It is this vessel, into which the concentration of the God essence flows, that is the Shekinah, the Feminine Womb or Birth Canal of Creation.

So, the Shekinah, in addition to being the Soul of God is also the Soul of the World.

3. The Celestial Alchemical Wedding

This, in essence, is the Great Work of Alchemy. As we awaken the Fire within us, purify our bodies and souls, raise our vibration, we are in essence awakening the Shekinah within and freeing Her from the bonds of Malkuth (the dense, leaden physical form). Once released, Her burning desire to reunite with the Creator (which at our level of awareness is mirrored by our own desire for union with our own soul) leads to an ascension up the Tree of Life, also experienced as the Kundalini rising.

Here again, we can learn from the Shekinah, the Feminine face of Alchemy. For, according to Kabbalah, it is the Shekinah that we need to learn to work with intimately in order to awaken Her within us and rise to unite with the Creator. We cannot succeed at Alchemy without mastery of the Feminine aspects within ourselves and the path.

The occult lesson is: one must not pollute this process with thought. Nor can it be rushed. One can only be still and wait patiently and quietly, while focusing on the One Thing (the still waters) and the original spark or idea from the One Mind (the fire).

If we shun the Feminine, we deny ourselves the glory of attaining the Holy Grail.

Referitor la ultima afirmatie despre “Holy Grail” as vrea sa adaug o observatie. In Apocalipsa gasim prezentarea unui “potir de aur plin de spurcaciuni si de necuratii”. Pe din afara pare aur curat dar pe dinauntru sunt spurcaciunile. Unul din simbolurile New Age este potirul si exista in aceasta miscare teoria urmatoare: “Legendele antice trebuie interpretate intr-un mod alegoric deoarece ne vorbesc despre un potir care nu este un obiect, ci o cale spirituala de a ne uni cu Dumnezeu cat suntem inca pe pamant. Aceasta stare perfecta se poate obtine prin studiul legendelor si prin cautarea personala, iar rezultatul este sa gasim calea in noi insine. Deasemnea aceasta teorie presupune ca sunt adevaruri fundamentale in toate religiile si ca adevarul este chiar calea” (The Quest for Truth; On Finding the Grail) Teoria aceasta cu potirul si cautarea “potirului ascuns” se leaga de legenda “Sfantului Graal” despre care se spune ca a fost gasit la Ierusalim de catre cavalerii templieri. Simbolistica pe care o gasim si la absolventii scolilor supranaturale de misiune din cadrul NAR.

Vi se pare cunoscuta aceasta teorie cu starea perfecta sau de slava “aici si acum”? Sau ca atunci cand ne-am nascut din nou am intrat in aceasta stare de slava si am primit toata plinatatea lui Cristos?

THE JEWISH TRADITION:

In the Jewish tradition, there is a saying that the Shekinah glory of God hovers over the marriage bed when a husband and wife sexually unite. The Shekinah glory represents the presence of God. It is His indescribable beauty, bright light, or radiance. It is a taste of heaven here on earth.

“ONENESS” IN A CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE:

When a Christian husband and wife make love the Shekinah glory does not just hover over them any longer, the Holy Spirit actually gets into bed with them in the bodily form of their partner. As image bearers of God a Christian man and woman bring the Lord into bed with them, whether they are cognitively aware of His presence or not. There is nothing as intimate and spiritual as becoming one spiritually, physically and emotionally with our mate.

THE COMPLETED IMAGE OF GOD IN A CHRISTIAN MARITAL UNION:

It was not an accident that the Lord created a man and woman’s sexual organs to compliment one another. When a man cultivates a relationship with his wife that moves toward her by serving and cherishing her she can then receive him in a trusting, open manner. This is the essence of their masculine and feminine souls when male and female come together to bring the completed image of God in sexual union.
