The Tri-grams of the Chinese Tao Portray the Tree of Life : a Universal Tradition

The Tri-grams of the Chinese Tao Portray the Tree of Life : a Universal Tradition


It is extraordinary to find how precisely the tri-grams of the Taoist I-Ching, the Book of Changes, reflect the elemental characters of the Sephiroth, the Shining Ones, on the Tree of Life. These elemental definitions depend on putting the planets in their ruling Signs, which gives the true Kabbalistic character of each Sephira. The elemental characters of these Signs coincide precisely with the traditional elemental definition of the trigrams.

The Abysmal, the Moon, Water                      the Fishes, Water, the ocean
Keeping Still, Mountain                                 the Goat, Earth, the mountain
The Joyous, Lake                                        the Scorpion, Water, the lake
The Receptive, Earth                                   the Virgin, Earth, refined earth
The Clinging, Fire, the Sun                            the Lion, Fire, the Sun
The Gentle, Wind                                        the Balance, Air, the breeze
The Arousing, Thunder                                 the Archer, Fire, lightening
The Creative, Heaven                                  the Water-Carrier, Air, the heavens


These notes will be expanded.
