A deep and powerful examination of Kabbalah and Hebrew in relation with Enoch, Metatron, and Abraham. Includes discussion of the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge, the Zohar, the Manna, and much more.
"The ring of bronze is emphatically referred to (amongst others) as a symbol of time. Cyclically, it conducts the Gnostic arhat to that ancient patriarchal epoch, denominated the Age of Bronze, or Dvapara Yuga, which indubitably preceded our contemporary Age of Iron, or Kali Yuga... The best authors of occultism have always affirmed that the second transalpine catastrophe, which completely modified the geological physiognomy of the planet Earth, occurred between these two ages. The seventh, among the ten sublime anti-delugean patriarchs, is without any supposition, completely different from the six who in the course of the centuries preceded him... (Adam, Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared), as well as the three who succeeded him (Methuselah, Lamech, Noah). Nonetheless, it is clear that among all of this, what is more astonishing for us is the sacred name of Enoch, which when translated signifies, “initiate; devotee; consecrated one; master.” The Hebraic Genesis (5:24) solemnly asseverates that Enoch did not truly die physically, but rather “Enoch walked with God and was not; for God took him.” Very ancient esoteric traditions, which are lost within the night of the centuries, clearly say that while Enoch was upon the majestic summit of Mount Moria, he had a clairvoyant samadhi in which his illuminated objective consciousness was taken and transported into the nine heavens (which are cited by Dante in his Divine Comedy). In the last one of these heavens (in the heaven of Neptune), the patriarch found the Lost Word (his own Verb, his individual, particular Monad). Posteriorly, that great hierophant wanted to express his vision through a permanent and imperishable monument... Thus, he then absolutely determined with great wisdom to build under that blessed place itself a subterranean, secret temple, which was comprised of nine cellars successively arranged one under another, within the living innermost parts of the mount... Certainly, his son Methuselah was the physical architect in charge of such an extraordinary sancta... The specific and defined contents and the destiny of each one of these cellars or magical caves (which were connected to one another by means of a spiralling ladder) is not mentioned... Nonetheless, the last of these caves is the one which absorbs the whole occult importance. Therefore, the anterior cellars just constitute the indispensable secret path that finally leads to the last cellar, within the greatest profundity of the mountain... Within the latter, the “penetral” or most intimate “sancta,” is where the Patriarch Enoch deposited his most valuable, esoteric treasure... The “Golden Fleece” of the ancient ones, the ineffable and imperishable treasure that we search for, is never found on the surface. Rather, we must excavate, dig, and search within the innermost parts of the Earth until finding it... By courageously descending into the innermost parts or infernos of the mount of revelation, the initiate finds for himself the mystical treasure (his divine Monad), that was preserved throughout all the innumerable centuries which preceded us in the course of history... We can still read the following in Revelations 2:17: To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knows saving he that receives it." - Samael Aun Weor
