LESSON 1: THE TREE OF LIFE - Path 10
 

THE MULTI-COLORED SPHERE

The multi-colored sphere at the bottom of the Tree of Life is the Sphere of Manifestation. It is Path 10 on the Tree of Life. The Hebrew name of this sphere is Malkuth which means the Kingdom. This tenth sphere on the Tree of Life is the Kingdom of the Divine.

THE PATH OF MANIFESTATION

The Path of Manifestation is known by several other names including the Gate, the Gate of Death, the Gate of the Shadow of Death, the Gate of Tears, the Gate of Justice, the Gate of Prayer, the Gate of the Garden of Eden and the Gate of Heaven and Hell. It is also called the Virgin, Bride, Queen and Inferior Mother. This last title alludes to the Sphere of Beliefs which is called the Supernal Mother.

The four colors attributed to Manifestation represent the four Elements of Earth at the bottom, Air at the top, Fire on the observer's left and Water on the right. This intended to convey the idea that the other three Elements residing in the World of Fire, the Astral World, are reflected into the World of Earth where they manifest as our Intellect (Air), Emotions (Water) and Drive (Fire).

We express ourselves in the Manifestation on the conscious level of our being. Our subconscious mind is partially hidden from us. Our unconscious mind is almost completely hidden from us. This handicaps us and forces us to learn more about ourselves and everything in the creation with limited resources.

The ancient wisdom of the Tree of Life teaches us that this is necessary for our spiritual advancement. Otherwise we would continue to exist in complete knowing. When you already know everything you cannot learn anything.
