The Tree of Life Inspires Biblical Myth

The Tree of Life Inspires Biblical Myth


The Kabbalah, the inner Tradition of Jewish wisdom, places the great names of the Old Testament on to the Tree of Life and each has exactly the astrological character of that planet in its appropriate Sign. Suggesting significant religious myth, perhaps more than history, influenced these stories. So they mean more to us. Spiritual truth or literal history. Take your choice.

History does follow spiritual patterns but the design is not quite so clear as the legends that are retold over and over by every generation.

We see how naturally the Cross emerged as the symbol of this wisdom, the logo of the Tree of Life which has us all painfully nailed to our celestial destiny.

The Cross embraces the opposites, uniting the four elements on the Tree (see Note on the Cross of the Elements) .
