Getal – Teken – Woord: Het symbolische universum van het Hebreeuws als taal van de Bijbel

Door Friedrich Weinreb

140 Pagina’s | 2021 | Softcover | Uitgeverij Quintessentia | ISBN 9789079449200

Getal – teken – woord is een heldere inleiding in de mystieke denkwereld van Friedrich Weinreb. Wie zich in zijn benadering van de Bijbel en de joodse overlevering verdiept, zal ontdekken dat er in deze teksten een oud weten bewaard is gebleven, dat antwoorden geeft op fundamentele vragen naar de zin van ons leven.

De Bijbel is niet een receptenboek, met starre regels die voorschrijven wat wel en niet mag, maar biedt een inzicht in de grote structuren van ons leven vanuit één centrale, samenhangende bron, zonder enige vorm van dogmatisme.

Weinreb laat hier zien hoe de Bijbel daadwerkelijk de structuur van de schepping bevat. De Bijbel is als het ware een blauwdruk van de gehele schepping. Het Hebreeuws, de heilige taal waarin de Tora is geschreven, biedt de mens een verbluffend handvat om het wezen der dingen te leren kennen, of beter: te leren herkennen.

Friedrich Weinreb (1910 -1988) heeft in een omvangrijk oeuvre de wereld van de joodse mystiek uitgelegd aan de mens van deze tijd. Uitgaande van de overtuiging dat er in de Bijbel en de joodse overlevering een oud weten is bewaard, zoekt hij naar een vaste leidraad die de mens op zijn weg door deze wereld houvast kan bieden.

A best seller in France, this new edition, meticulously translated by Christopher Chaplin and Tony james, is the first to appear in the English language.

”This book is clearly the result of a lifetime’s reflection, revealing an inherant ladder of order from the physical body to that of the Divine Adam Kadmon. ”
– Z’ev Ben Shimon Halevi, author of Adam and the Kabbalistic Tree.

”A fascinating, embodied view of the Kabbalh. From breathing to sound, from sound to word, from word to action, Annick de Souzenelle takes us on a journey through the Creation story, the Tree of Life, the Hebrew alphabet, Greek and Egyptian mysteries, and more. Her wise GPS on the trip tells us: Knowledge is love. ”
– Dr. Neil Douglas-Klotz, author of The Hidden Gospel

The Esoteric Tarot – Ancient Sources rediscovered in Hermeticism and Cabala

By Ronald Decker. 330 Pages | First Quest edition 2013 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835609081.

From the Introduction:

No explanation is known to have accompanied the Original Tarot. This book presents an interpretation, that will surprise most Tarotists (those, who are esoterists) and most academics (those, who are critics of the esoterists). My theory covers the evolution of the Tarot, the connotations of its symbols, the symbol’s sources, and their transmission to the proper places at the proper times. In truly ancient references, I have found forgotten patterns, that are definitely congruent with the Tarot. I will treat not merely isolated motifs, but symbolic systems. I hope to establish the meanings of the Tarot as it was understood by its inventor(s). Granted, my arguments require deductions and interferences. This is currently necessary, because of the scarcity of hard evidence. I welcome improvements to my theory. It offers many points from which further research can proceed. The following definition is typical of standard dictionairies: Tarot (TAR-o, ta-RO) noun [French < Middle French < Old Italian tarocco (plural: tarocchi)] a set of cards depicting certain allegories and providing a deck for oracles and games.

From Chapter 1 – ‘Thoth, Hermes and Hieroglyphs’ (p.28):

” The title Trismegistus (thrice greatest) presumably derived from the Egyptian practice of addressing the Gods as ‘great’, ’twice-great’, etc. Hermes Trismegistus could still be considered a God, but if so, he was supposed to have begun as a man, one who attained enlightenment and ascended as divinity. More often, he was regarded as a sage, presumed to have lived in remote antiquity and to have inherited the wisdom of Thoth. Some authors tried to simplify the Hermetic traditions by creating a genealogy: Thoth was the father of Agathodemon, who was the father of Hermes Trismegistus, who was the father of Tat. ‘Tat’ is a variation of ‘Tot’, a variation of Thoth. “

From Chapter 7 –  ‘The Fools’s Pilgrimage’ (p. 65):

” The human being is a fool. Shakespeare was right when he said: ‘What fools we mortals be!’ The first card of the greater Arcana, the Fool, pictures man as a carefree youth, striding gaily forth in such a position, that his next step may send him over the edge of the cliff. As noted in connection with the Eleventh Path, we are this fool ourselves, divine and immortal souls ready to descend into manifest existence. It is also we, ourselves, having descended from Kether to Malkuth, now ascending from earth to the heavens. Of all the Arcana, the fool manifests the greatest freedom. “

For decades, our modern society has looked to the East for spiritual guidance and renewal. Here is a guide much closer to home. Its subjects range comprehensibly from Jungian psychology to the Kabbalah and Gnosticism, and from Freemasonry and the Templars to Alchemy, Shamanism, the work of Gurdjieff, Neopaganism, Sufism and esoteric Christianity.

Authors Smoley and Kinney speak with sensible, even-handed objectivity, covering the strengths and weaknesses as well as the history and ideas of each tradition. They also end each chapter with a wealth of resources for further exploration. Whether you are just beginning to seek a spiritual practice or want to know more about a particular teaching; Hidden Wisdom is an invaluable resource for finding the Path, that is right for you.

From Chapter 5 – ‘Magicians: Sculptors of the Astral Light’ (p. 105):

” Magic is the traditional science of the secrets of Nature, which has been transmitted to us from the Magi. By means of this science the Adept is invested with a species of relative omnipotence and can operate superhumanly – that is, after a manner which transcends the normal possibility of man. “

Richard Smoley is the former editor of <em>Gnosis</em> magazine and today is editor of Quest Books.

The Royal Road – A Manual of Kabalistic Meditations on the Tarot

By Stephan A. Hoeller

119 Pages | First edition 1975, third printing 1988 | Softcover | Quest Books, USA | ISBN: 0835604659.

Integrating the two diciplines to heighten the experience of meditation.

Those, who are into Tarot and those, who are interested or involved in meditation will be attracted by this new book by the director of the Sophia Gnostic Center of Los Angeles. Designed to lead the reader easily into a meditative state, it includes 22 illustrations of the Major Arcana each juxtaposed with an appropriate meditation.

As the reader relates the cards to the paths that lead upward on the Kabalistic Tree of Life, heightened spiritual consiousness can result. The author has addressed The Royal Road to the general reader interested in the values in both the Tarot deck and in the Kabalistic interpretation of the Hebrew Scriptures.

From Chapter 2: ‘Tarot and Kabalah (p.13):

” Can the Tarot predict the future? Perhaps! The true answer, however can not be given so simply. If we recognize that, even though unconsciously, we are constantly shaping our future, it then follows that by establishing a magical contact with our unconscious we can learn much about our future and, what is more, we can influence and alter our future, thereby becoming, at least to a degree, masters of our own destiny. Time is a continuum, not a division, and its mysteries are often pierced when we recognize the proper significance of material clues to spiritual processes. Tarot divination is merely one particular application of these principles to the concerns of daily living. “
