QKabbalah; what a weird word that is! First of all the word has a wide array of spelling, from cabala or cabal to Kabbalah to Qabalah. When I choose to read about it, the writing oftentimes goes right over my head. I am left with the thoughts that either I must be stupid or it just doesn’t make sense! So I go to the dictionary, where I read: “a system of esoteric theosophy and theurgy developed by rabbis, reaching its peak about the 12th and 13th centuries, and influencing certain medieval and Renaissance Christian thinkers. It was based on a mystical method of interpreting Scripture by which initiates claimed to penetrate sacred mysteries. Among its central doctrines are, all creation is an emanation from the Deity and the soul exists from eternity.” Added is the fact that it can be confused with Cabal, Cabala. Let us look at what is implied by the official definition:
• It’s old stuff.
• The word “esoteric” means: understood by or meant for only the select few who have special knowledge or interest; recondite.
• The word “recondite” means: dealing with very profound, difficult, or abstruse subject matter.
• The word “claim” in the “initiate claimed to penetrate the mysteries” attests to the initiate being a fraud and/or to the ineffectiveness of a method that is faulty.
• Cabal: 1. a small group of secret plotters, as against a government or person in authority. 2. the plots and schemes of such a group; intrigue.
As per the subtext of the above definition, not only can cabala be confused with cabal, but it actually is! There must be a cabal to prevent us from hearing and seeing clearly what the QKabbalah is :-). This is so as it allows for the fight to continue as to who is going to be right: the Rabbinical Kabbalists (who transliterates the Hebrew word with a K) or the Hermetic Qabalists (transliterating it with the Q).
More importantly, keeping the science of QKabbalah under wraps maintains the separation of giving and receiving, since the Hebrew word QKabbalah means “receiving.” The simplicity – I can only give that which I have “received” – escapes me. Moreover, teaching that giving is more spiritually elevated than receiving enforces the sense of lack and the feel of deprivation, as I can never give me to have my cake and eat it too! I therefore continue to be hungry for LOVE, for everything. Ultimately that split between my two hands affects the whole society as it also antagonizes men and women: if men are supposed to be giving as providers, women are supposed to be receiving. No wonder the Sacred Feminine would be sent into exile: that perception of sexes is just not balanced!
If that weren’t enough, the rumor is that studying the QKabbalah is dangerous: legend has it that to actually approach it, I must be a Rabbi, a male, at least 40 years young, and have two children – a son and a daughter. Provided I meet all those conditions, then I can hit the books! Oyveh! The irony is that there is some truth to the danger of embarking in such study: you might indeed die to who you think you are! This is also how every mystical tradition is shrouded in potent warnings about what is to be expected on the way to the Mastery forum. Indeed, I have no clue about the enormity of what I will have to face.
Why the New Essenes? Why now? Rather than putting an “enter at your own risk” sign, the New Essenes offer a few questions to explore to see if this form of study is a match made in heaven for what the planet is going through at this time. That is why now! Join us as we explore how to receive and factually “get” ready, real, able, and finally “get” going, as each one of us eventually ends up feeling: “this QKabbalah thing, I get it!” We will start at noon EST / 11 AM CST / 9 AM PST this Sunday, and inquire on P55 of the New Essenes eBook (please make sure you have downloaded the latest version). If you can join us live this time, great! If not, you may always listen to the archive or join us for our other New Essene shows via Elevate the Soul radio. Logistics follow.
Until then and beyond, peace be with you,
