Related Studies in Kabala
Why Studies in Kabala?
The Rosicrucian tradition and kabala are related at a deep level because they come from one truth. That truth is so abstract, that it requires metaphors, symbols and parables to explain it. The importance of that truth is that it leads to personal transformation and liberation. Christ has assured us that "ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set ye free". Then why are we not free? Why are lives full of misery and pain? Simply because although the truth is freely offered to us, we do not make the effort to receive it.
That is the point, it requires effort on our part. We have to work in order to receive that which is freely given. Is that a paradox? Yes. Is that a mystery? Certainly. How is the mystery solved? By revelation. How do we get revelation? By working for it.
This is the Great Work spoken of by the alchemists and adopted by the Rosicrucian tradition. The rules of the Great Work can be discovered and can be known. Then, they have to be applied in our lives.
These related studies in kabala, are one person's interpretation of the rules of the Great Work.
