An Exercise in QaBaLah
© Wim van den Dungen
This exercise in Qabalah seeks to give a
succinct & clear account of the way reification gives way to an ultimate
abstraction of the eternal substance, i.e. a mode of thought accepting The One
Thing exists from His/Her/Its own side, as an absolute entity in its own right,
namely The One independent from anything else, only existing eternally for
De Pace Perfecta Luce
On Perfect Peace with Light
0 : Divine Darkness
00 : Space Without Limit
000 : Infinite Light
God's essence is only for God to be in.
The Divine procession starts when God
begins realizing God & ends at the Jubilee of Jubilees (JJ) when He
celebrates His last Cosmos (Immanence equating Transcendence).
Between beginning &
end, God's Plan proceeds from God, i.e. God is 'becoming' more than essence ('ousia'), He
creates existence ('energeia'). God's essence is inaccessible to Its outside ('esse
subsistens'). It is Its own first cause ('causa sui'). It is for God to partake in. God
(YHadonaïVY) shows Himself through His Cosmoi. But to what He (as Elohîm) manifests, God
is potential, silent & withdrawn, i.e. an unknowable Divine Darkness.
The Cosmoi are born, live, die and are reborn through a Divine Comedy (God realizing God).
When each & every point of God's Infinite Space finally has been a living Kether,
making all of Space lit up (mirroring GOD through Himself as God realizing God)
THE GREAT JOY bursts forth. The onefold Light of this JJ shines once and
forever. The Divine, God Creator, understood as bipolar (i.e. transcendent, unqualified,
potential & immanent, qualified, real) is paradoxical, apophatic, onefold, perfect and
Three veils cover God.
They stand between Man & God as a cloud of unknowing,
is One God Alone :
0 = Absolute No-Thing-ness or Ain ; ?
the Will of God to Realize or not to Realize God ;
00 = Infinite Space or Ain Soph ;
all possibilities receiving this Will in order to bestow :
000 = Limitless Light or Ain Soph Aur !
a Hidden Light shining within God's Infinite Space.
Creation is 'real' because Some-Thing came out of No-Thing. This emanation is not God's
essence, but God's Energy. It is His Life. God's essence is a 'potential' reality, His
existence a 'manifest' reality. So this outpouring is His procession. Creation serves the JJ,
when God -through His Fatherhood as Crowned Creator- realizes God. At the JJ
all ends & only GOD is all essences & existences ; all is One totally &
perfectly selfrealized GOD-Self.
Is His existence a 'Deification' of each & every point of Infinite Space ? Each Cosmos
being but a small particle of this Space containing all options which -at the Final End-
all have become real ? When All Ideal Is Real & All Reality Is Ideal only GOD
The procession is the outside of God. God's essence does not imply necessity. This begins
when God stops being potential (i.e. when He exists). In order to realize God, God
had to carve a hollow, constrict Its AUR & repolarize It. For He is the Great
Architect of His Cosmoi.
Because the procession takes place outside God, life is a Divine Comedy ; a play of God
with God for the sake of God's willed God-realization as GOD-Self.
a) God's will to know Himself as God (vacating Space) ;
b) the contraction of the Light of this hollow to One point ;
c) the outpouring of this Kether of this present Cosmos by the Operations of His Divine
Trinity, fashioning the Holy Sevenfold Order of our Creator through finite but Divine
The veils cover God's interiority. They can be rendered only by GOD. Because God willed God,
God willed the separation (bridged by the Kether of each Cosmos) between the hidden
interior & Its procession, the exterior. The finite Cosmoi are contained within God
who, hyper-existing in Kether as Our Father, enfolds them. Blessed is He !
Tradition states that Will (Absolute No-Thing) carved out a Letter in Infinite Space
(Absolute All). God contracted the Light of that vacated hollow to One Singular
Force and made It repolarize. So was born the outpouring Crown (or Light-fountain) of
God's exterior (the Father of this Cosmos) making God the Creator of this Creation.
The Will of God, the Act of allowing a Contraction to happen & the Outpouring of the
Kingdom are the Spendours given to Malkuth to behold the sevenfold Law of Existence.
The Lightning Flash :
Kether is a dimensionless Monad, a Cosmic Father & Creator ; the immanent mode of the
Absolute. The Seven Laws originate from His Trinity. His is a Divine mode of Alternation.
The interior non-manifested Potential & Its exterior manifestation as a Creative &
Divine Hyper-Existing Life-Energy are both separated & united.
The Serpent Path :
Kether is both the Potential & the Real. His hyper-existence is the Ever-Becoming-God,
the perpetual change permeating the illusionary permanence of the Cosmoi. Our Father's
hyper-activity makes virtual & real to be divided for the ultimate goal of the Final
Consumption of God -through an infinite, infinitely His, infinite realizations- by GOD.
A consistent distinction is made between God, God & GOD.
God in the beginning :
(1) God : ineffable, infinite, incomprehensible, unmanifest, virtual, potential, singular
God in process :
(2) God : God willing to realize 'ex nihilo' exterior Cosmoi for the sake of the
immanence of transcendence and this in an absolute way (through the Crowns of an infinite
number of Creators so long as Ain Soph does not completely mirror God's immanence) ;
GOD at the end :
(3) GOD : final & full realization of everything Called, Created, Formed &
