THE PSYCHIATRY OF LIFE
The Kabbalistic Tree of life seems as much as anything else to be a framework of different aspects of the psyche and the conditions therein. There is perhaps a reason why psychiatry is such an eminently Jewish science and also perhaps again an example of the practitioner imposing his view on a phenomenon for reasons known only to himself. Just as the psychiatrist imposes his own definitions so too, the Kabbalist impose his own definitions on God.
The Zohar is the central and most important book of the Kabbalah. Much of its discourse is based on secret interpretations of the Torah in such a way to bend, change or even contradict the original meaning. It does this by creating a whole secondary study on the meaning of the words used in the Torah by interpreting and ascribing some kind of mystical interpretation to the Hebrew letters themselves.
I have previously written on the fascinating origin of the alphabet as pictographic symbols, a fact many people are completely unaware of today except for students of linguistics; this fascinating study opens up vistas into our most remote past and confronts us with some intriguing mysteries. For instance, learning that the letter C represent a ‘Gamal’ or ‘throwing stick’ we might wonder how this ancient Egyptian hunting tool found its way to the Australian Aborigines. The word ‘Gamal’ is the Arabic word for camel and it is possibly the distinctive bent, or arched shape of the throwing stick and also the word for ‘bridge’ in Aramaic is ‘Gamla’, no doubt the distinctive ‘arched’ shape of the camel back being the inspiration but all of these words have their origins with the Ancient Egyptian word for a ‘throwing stick’ and the verb QMR or ‘qamar’ which meant ‘to throw’. We can see how with the passage of years consonantal shift may slightly obscure the origins. So ‘q’ and ‘g’ and ‘r’ and ‘l’ are largely equivalent and phonetically very close when it comes to the movements of the tongue and the mouth for their articulation.
The Study of the letters of our own alphabet also betray the Middle-Eastern, ancient Semitic origins of our letters. The alphabet we may consider to be Greek since the letters of ‘Alpha’ and ‘Beta’ are known, but the ‘Aleph’ and ‘Beet’ of the Hebrews may be less widely known. The Semitic ‘Beet’ represents the floor plan of a house and our letter B still shows us the two rooms of this house. Every letter in fact is a picture of something and often correlates with words which use that letter to convey that meaning.
Over the years the letters may have transformed somewhat by flipping either to the left or right or upside down. So the letter A, known in Greek as ‘Alpha’ and in Hebrew as ‘Aleph’, was originally a pictogram of an ox’s head. If you turn the letter upside-down and return it to its original orientation as an Egyptian hieroglyph and the two horns and face of an ox appear. In the Hebrew alphabet ‘Aleph’, like all of the letters of the Hebrew alphabet, is supposed to have mystical significance. ‘Aleph’ is composed of two yods with a diagonal letter waw (or f) connecting the upper, hidden qualities of God and the lower visible presence of God in the visible world.
In some instances, some of these symbolic interpretations may actually contain something genuinely insightful or even revelatory. The letter ‘Yod’ for instance or ‘Iota’ in Greek, as in ‘not one iota’ or ‘not one jot’ as the smallest letter represents the immense power of God and the single, smallest point of the microcosm from which all creation emanates; it is also significantly, the first letter of the ‘tetragrammaton’ YHWH or ‘Jahweh’.
In his book The Palm Tree of Deborah, Shelomo Alfassa describes the attainment of the highest level of the tree of life, Kether or Crown, though like so much of the Kabbalah this in itself is an inconsistent claim since it was said that in the Zohar that Moses himself had only perceived as high as Tiferet and the Patriarchs Malchut, so from this we are to assume that the higher Sefirot are probably off limits to humanity, yet Shelomo apparently is able to explain the attainment of Kether, the highest emanation closest to the infinite and unknowable Ain Soph.
“It does not raise nor exalt itself upwards; on the contrary, it descends to look downwards at all times. For this there are two reasons. The first is that it ashamed to gaze at its Source, but the Cause of its emanation looks continually into it to give goodness to it while it looks down to those beneath.”
The suggestion of being ‘ashamed’ to look at the source which is Ain Soph or the unknowable God suggests estrangement from God and evokes the fall of man in the Garden of Eden being where the first sign to God that Adam had disobeyed his commandment not to eat from the Tree of Knowledge was his shame and the fact that he hid himself when God came to look for him. It can be no coincidence that the serpent is a stylistic representation of the journey up the Kabbalistic tree of life, and we may recall that the word snake in the Hebrew Old Testament is Nachash which also means occult.
According to The Kabbalah Experience by Michael Laitman, “a great part of the Kabbalist’s journey is spent in the worlds of ABYA (Atzilut, Beria, Yetzira, Assiya), where the Kabbalist gradually turns intended and unintended sins into virtues, and thus justifies the works of the creator and His guidance.”
We find what might be an interesting oblique reference to one of the key doctrines of the Kabbalah in the Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz, that of turning vices into virtues, and although nothing is made explicit in the text, it ought to be understood that he who is not initiated into the Kabbalistic secrets of the Rosicrucians is unlikely to make any sense of events which might only stoke his curiosity and induce him to join the group but the real intention is to convey meaning to those who already understand what is being alluded to:
“Meantime the King and Queen, for recreation’s sake, began to play together, at something which looked not unlike chess, only it had different rules; for it was the Virtues and Vices one against another, and it might ingeniously be observed with what plots the Vices lay in wait for the Virtues, and how to re-encounter them again. This was so properly and cleverly performed, that it is to be wished that we had the same game too.”
The Kabbalist pursues mystical insight rather than intellectual beliefs or moral action though it seems to me to be a trick to escape the reality of moral judgement of the kind outlined in the Torah. The Kabbalah has many such semantic and legalistic tricks in order to redefine moral absolutes and continue to live a life which we might say, pleases man more than it might please God. This is best exemplified or instance in the Kabbalistic doctrine of what we might call ‘holy sin’ and is explained clearly by Laitman:
“..In the Almighty’s sight the repentant sinner has a higher status than the man who has never sinned. This is the meaning of the rabbinic teaching that in the place where the penitent stands the perfectly righteous cannot stand (Ber. 34b). The reason for this has been expounded by the Rabbis in the chapter ‘He Who Builds,’ where it is stated that the letter He is shaped like an exedra (Is a Greek word for exedra was a covered place in front of a house but open to the outside) so that whomsoever wishes to go astray may do so. That is to say, the world was created by means of the letter He and the Holy One, Blessed is He, created the world wide open in the direction of sin and evil. As the exedra, the world is not fully enclosed but is broken open towards the direction of evil (Sabbath).”
Reading from the Kabbalah Experience, where The Kabbalah is explained in a series of question and answers, we find the following passage about the cessation of perception of time experienced by the initiate into the Kabbalah mysteries:
“What about the lack of perception of time? It’s hard to understand the lack of sensation of time. But ‘time’ in spirituality is no more than the changing of emotions.”
The distortion of the perception, or even as Laitman suggests, the cessation altogether, is a classic symptom of some kind of neuropsychiatric and neurological disorder and in present in many mental impairment disorders ranging from Parkinson’s disease through to bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. It is my contention that this is the goal of working with the Kabbalah and the results of travelling through the stations of the Tree of Life are tantamount to developing psychosis. Indeed, I maintain that this is the apotheosis and pinnacle of the mystery initiatory tradition and always has been, even more so to this day.
It is interesting to note that the Tree of Life bears no reference to anything taught or mentioned in the Jewish Torah and it ought to be evident that the two systems are not mutually inclusive: there is no mention of Jahweh in the Tree of Life, the Ain Soph is an impersonal definition for ‘eternity’ which is the closest thing to God in the Kabbalistic system. Kabbalah doesn’t really deal with a moral universe in the sense of right and wrong, and actively opposing duality, merely extols relative levels of awareness and has much more in common with gnostic systems revealed from the synthesis of Greek and Jewish thought in the centuries after the ministry of Jesus.
The Kabbalah then is the attempt to justify the backsliding of Israel through semantic tricks and word-play in order to justify many of the things which were specifically forbidden by the Torah, above all of them, being initiation into the occult mysteries which the Kabbalah specifically exalts.
There are many chapters of the Zohar which relate the supposed secret initiations of the Hebrew patriarchs, again as we have seen, using the selective use of passages from the Torah to give false justification for the exegesis.
“It is stated, ‘He went on his journeys from the south even into Bethel, the place where he had pitched his tent at the beginning’; he progressed and advanced in the divine life so that by the mental and spiritual illumination which he ultimately attained, he became fully initiated into the comprehension and understanding of the mysteries of the Hidden Wisdom and graduated to that degree termed ‘teleiaor,’ perfection, when it is written, ‘And there Abraham called on the name of the Lord’ (Gen. XIII. 4) and became a just man made perfect. Blessed are they who attain unto this degree of righteousness, for they become invested with an aureole of light and are jewels in the crown of the Holy One. Blessed are they in this world and in. the world to come. Of these it is written, ‘The path of the just is as the shining light that shineth more and more unto the perfect day’ (Prov. IV. 18).”
“On observing this general depravation of manners and modes of living, it is written, ‘And Abraham went down into Egypt to sojourn there.’ Here the question may arise, what was the reason and object of his going down into Egypt? It was because at that time Egypt was a great center of learning, of Theosophy and the science of the Divine Mysteries, and therefore referred to in scripture as ‘the garden of the Lord like the land of Egypt.’ In it, as in the garden of Eden, of which it is stated, ‘From the right of it went forth a river called Pison that encompassed the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold,’ flowed a great mystical river of divine knowledge, very precious and unobtainable elsewhere. Abraham having entered into the garden of Eden and become an adept in the secret doctrine, desirous of passing through all its grades on two the higher mysteries in order to become ‘teloios’ or perfect, went down into Egypt where there was gold, or the Hidden Wisdom.”
So, the implication is clear that the prohibition of initiatory or transformative rites of the pagans which are continually rebuked in the Torah are now reversed and such rites are specifically encouraged, indeed, such is the whole purpose of the Kabbalah.
The very fact of initiation is something forbidden in the earliest Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible the Septuagint. The name Septuagint comes from the story that Ptolemy II the Greek Pharoah of Egypt of the 3rd century BC, asked for a translation of the Torah from Hebrew to Greek to be included in the Library of Alexandria by 72 Jewish Elders.
“There shall not be a harlot of the daughters of Israel, and there shall not be a fornicator of the sons of Israel; there shall not be an idolatress of the daughters of Israel, and there shall not be an initiated person of the sons of Israel.” Deuteronomy 23:17
‘Initiated’ person is usually translated as ‘ritual homosexual prostitution’ and this line was added by the 70 Jewish scholars to further clarify the following verse.
“Thou shalt not bring the hire of a harlot, or the wages of a dog, into the house of Jehovah thy God for any vow: for even both these are an abomination unto Jehovah thy God.”
The wages of a dog is also translated as “male prostitute’s payment” and this is because this was associated with the mysteries of Anubis, hence the Septuagint’s reference to ‘initiation’.
With this in mind are we to assume that the biggest secret of secret society initiation is the homosexual sex act?
It is this force which now rules the world today through the proxy of Freemasonry which it infiltrated via Rosicrucianism and the general Alchemical sciences transmitted by those Kabbalistic Jews to the idealistic and perhaps well-meaning Christians to infect the West.
The Kabbalah uses the interpretation of letters to imbue new meanings in order to completely rewrite the fundamental parts of the Torah and it does this in order to justify its own initiatory system of mysticism. In the Zohar the Biblical phrase “Let us make man” is taken and the word Man or ‘Adam’ is analysed thus:
“…known to the angels the mystery and occult signification of the word Adam (man), the letters of which indicate his relation to both worlds, the seen and unseen, the known and unknown. By the letter M which is written as a final or closed mem, is found thus contrary to rule in the word lemarbeh, occurring in the verse, ‘Of the increase of his government’ (Is. ix. 7). Man is connected with the higher world, whilst daleth or the letter D, closed on the west side, indicates his relation to the lower and sensible world. The principles of which these letters are the symbols ultimated in their manifestation on the phenomenal plane of existence and the production of a blended and harmonious whole, viz., of man in the form of male and female until the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon him (Gen. ii. 21). The Holy One then separated them and having clothed the latter in a form most fair and beautiful brought her to man, as a bride is adorned and led to the bridegroom. Scripture states that He took one of the sides or parts (of the androgynous form) and filled up the place with flesh in its stead. In a very ancient occult book we have found it stated that what God took from the side of Adam was not a rib but Lilith, who had cohabited with him and given birth to offspring. She was however an unsuitable helpmeet for Adam and therefore Scripture states, ‘But for Adam there was not found a helpmeet for him’ (Gen. ii. 20). After the disappearance of Lilith and Adam’s descent into the world plane of existence, then it was, as stated, ‘The Lord God said, It is not good that man should be alone, I will make him a helpmeet for him.'”
So here the Kabbalah is saying that Adam, or Man originally cohabited with Lilith and the Lilith was Adam’s first wife and she subsequently became a demon which persecutes children:
“She dwelled there until Adam and his wife sinned. Then the blessed Holy One plucked her form there, and she rules over all those children – small faces of humanity – who deserve to be punished for the sins of their fathers….She toys with them and kills them. This happens in the waning of the moon, whose light diminishes; this is me’orot (lights) deficient.”
According to Kabbalistic analysis of the passage above this means that God released the spirit of Lilith specifically to punish and murder children.
From this belief one can see how ritual child sacrifice has come into being and we can see how the Zohar has given rise to modern Satanic ‘theology’ and practice and I wonder whether child sacrifices are carried out to this day when the moon’s light wanes. If so they would be being carried out according to Jewish scripture. According to the Zohar Lilith was created by mixing the perfect light of Jahweh with the imperfect light of Samael.
Israel is often described as a prostitute in the Old Testament, an epithet God applies to Israel more than any other in the whole of the Old Testament. God also accuses Israel of adultery 40 times in scripture. The children of Israel frequently departed from the worship of the one God and into Ba’al worship, trafficking with demons and all kinds of immorality. Nothing has changed.
From the Zohar, in a chapter concerning the union of the higher and lower self which beguilingly begins with an excerpt from Genesis:
“Said Rabbi Eleazar: ‘It is written, “But with thee will I establish my covenant” (Gen. vi. 18): as the continuity of the covenant or good law on earth is the same as in the higher spheres, we infer from these words that when men become just and upright in this world they contribute to the stability of the good law in both worlds.’
Said Rabbi Simeon: ‘The words just cited have an occult meaning. The love of the male for the female is based upon jealous desire. Observe, when there is a just man in the world, or one whose higher and lower self have become harmonized and unified, the divine spirit or Shekinah is ever with him and abides in him, causing a feeling of affectionate attachment towards the Holy One to arise similar to that between the male and female. Therefore the words, ‘I will establish my covenant with thee’ may be rendered thus, ‘Because of the union between thy higher and lower natures giving rise to a yet diviner life, I will abide with thee forever. I will never leave nor forsake thee. Come thou therefore into the ark into which no one unless he is just can enter.'”
The mystical union of the higher and lower self, or of the bride with the Bridegroom within the context of the Rosicrucian mysteries, is the key goal of any continuous initiatory programme. This mystical union involves process which eventually lead to a change in brain chemistry such that the right and left hemispheres of the brain are in continually equal activity and that the right brain, that is the subconscious mind which is the residence of the higher self, is brought into day-to-day awareness and not merely relegated to explicit activity during our sleeping hours. This essentially means that what is termed the astral aspect of consciousness, which the right brain specifically interacts with, is brought down to Earth. This leads to the classic symptoms of schizophrenia which include auditory and visual hallucinations; feelings of unreality, dream-like states, feelings of impending death or even of actually being dead and in some kind of limbo state. The reason for this is because the right brain, the dormant part of our consciousness is in full operation and reality has indeed become partially dreamlike because we have brought that part of ourselves, that ability to access the astral dream realm, into our day to day lives. In addition to the negative effects there are some secondary effects which are prized in the occult community such as the ability to contact spirits and even the performance of feats of precognition and premonition since there are feats which our mind is capable of in the dream-state where there is no sense of time and all events past and present can be accessed by the astral consciousness.
This unification of both hemispheres of the brain leads to the state of primordial being or Adam Kadmon, or Adam Auilah in Hebrew, where man supposedly has his fully divine spark awakened and is one with the creator and all ten Sefirot are manifested. It is arguable that Jesus Christ underwent a similar experience to achieve his miracles but most people who undergo this experience probably become schizophrenic but for the Kabbalist and the Gnostic, the primordial man is the image of the perfect man as he was before the fall and the fragmentation of his mind into two distinct parts.
The right brain element to our mind is referenced in the Siphra Dtzenioutha or the Book of Concealed Mystery and makes it clear that this aspect of ourselves is ordinarily hidden from our normal perception:
“THE Ancient One is hidden and concealed; the Microprosopus is manifested, and is not manifested. When the inferior man descendeth (into this world), like unto the supernal form (in himself), there are found two spirits. (So that) man is formed from two sides–from the right and from the left.”
We can readily understand that this explanation that man has ‘two spirits’ and ‘two sides’ to himself refer to the left and right hemisphere of the brain which are indeed two spirits in the sense that the two parts of our consciousness are usually more or less very tightly sealed or insulated the one from the other.
For instance, we may remember snatches of key moments from our dreams which we have managed to bring into remembrance in waking left brain consciousness, but we never remember the whole varied dreamscape and the events which played out in our minds during the night. Similarly, when asleep we tend to have a very reduced awareness of our everyday life, perhaps the odd few people from our physical lives appear from time to time, but it is also true that we may also see people whom we have not seen for many years.
While asleep we tend to forget about the many details of who we are while awake, and so when asleep we can suddenly find ourselves in situations that are entirely at odds with our personal situation in real life.
The Arikh Anpin, meaning: the Vast Countenance, otherwise known as ‘The Ancient One’ or Macroprosopus, is a term used to describe the attainment of Kether, the first and highest Sefira closest to the divine emanation of the Ain Soph.
The Macroprosopus and the Microprosopus or the Microcosm and the Macrocosm, are the meaning of the well-known hermetic principle from the so-called Emerald Tablet of Thoth which first appeared in Arabic in the late 8th Century, and is the foundational text of European Alchemy:
“That which is below is as that which is above, and that which is above is as that which is below, to perform the miracles of the one thing.”
This is encoded in Eliphas’ Levi’s drawing of Baphomet with two fingers pointing upwards and two downwards while a caduceus of serpents, one black and one white are entwined around the middle. This is also represented by the two triangles of the Jewish hexagram, or Seal of Solomon, with the upper triangle representing spirit coming into matter while the lower triangle represents matter being elevated into the spirit world.
Incidentally Eliphas Levi, described the Sepher Yetzirah in his Histoire de la Magie as: “a Genesis of illumination, the Sepher Jezirah is a ladder formed of truths,” and that “The Zohar represents absolute truth, and the Sepher Jezirah provides the means by which we may seize, appropriate and make use of it.”
There is an interesting commentary by Samael Aun Peor, founder of Universal Gnosticism who was also a member of the Fraternitas Rosicruciana Antiqua movement:
“Binah is ruled by Shabbatai שבתאי, Saturn, we have an atom of Binah in the pineal gland, the door of heaven, which in the Male Goat of Mendes is represented with a torch upon a horned goat head (letter Shin ש). The two horns of the goat (as well as those of Moses) relates to Binah בינה and Chokmah חכמה. Binah relates to the left hemisphere of the brain and Chokmah-Uranos to Aquarius, the right hemisphere of the brain. They form the Tetragrammaton of Esh אש (‘fire’) in our Rosh ראש ‘head.’ This is why the name Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei יהוה, the Tetragrammaton, relates to Chokmah and Binah in the world of Atziluth. Above them in the torch or pineal gland is Kether, the crown, ruled by Neptune, the superior waters of Chaos; in other words, Pisces, the fluid emanations of the Theomertmalogos, the Christonic substance of the Solar Logos.”
Rav Kook, the first Chief Rabbi of Israel, writes intriguingly about the Zohar:
“This composition, called The Book of Zohar, is like Noah’s Ark, where there were many kinds, but those kinds and families could not exist unless by entering the ark. …Thus the righteous will enter the secret of the Light of this composition to persist, and thus is the virtue of the composition, that immediately when engaging, with his desire for the love of God, it will draw him as a magnet draws the iron. And he will enter it to save his soul and spirit and his correction. And even if he is wicked, there is no fear should he enter.”
This is a symbolic representation of the attainment of the Philosopher’s Stone, that is the unification of right and left hemispheres of the brain and the co-operation of the Microprosopus or the left brain rational logical physically oriented mind with the Macroprosopus of the right brain, the astral or spirit element of our mind.
The right brain as we know is concealed from our awareness except during sleep or as a result of the culmination of successful rituals and secret society initiations. In his introduction of his English translation of Knorr Von Rosenroth’s Latin translation of some of the books of the Kabbalah, Macgregor Mathers writes:
“Of Him it is said that He is partly concealed (in the sense of His connection with the negative existence) and partly manifest (as a positive Sefira). Hence the symbolism of the Vast Countenance is that of a profile wherein one side only of the countenance is seen; or, as it is said in the Qabalah, ‘in Him all is right side.’”
In the Siphra Dtzenioutha or The Book of Concealed Mystery, another of the texts which make up the Zohar we find further clearer references to the distinction between the left physical brain hemisphere of the physical world and the right, astral or spiritual realm aspect of our consciousness and this is also something encoded in the left and right pillars of the Kabbalah, like the symbolic left and right pillars of Freemasonry Boaz and Jachin as well as the three principle degrees of Freemasonry which are also referenced in the Zohar:
“There are three degrees, yet each is independent even though they are one, connected into one and do not separate one from the other.”
“With respect unto the right side he had, Neschamotha Qadisha, the holy intelligences; with respect unto the left side, Nephesh Chiah, the animal soul. Man sinned and was expanded on the left side; and then they who are formless were expanded also. When both were at once joined together generations took place, like as from some animal which generateth many lives in one connexion.”
In the book of the Greater Holy Assembly of the Zohar we find a reference to what could be an allusion to some kind of chemical agent being pivotal to this transformation which could accord with the Hoffer Adrenochrome Hypothesis already outlined in this book. Perhaps this too gives the hidden meaning behind the title ‘Chymical Wedding’ where the chemical transformation is within the initiate, incidentally the website for Phoenix Masonry have seen fit to publish Mather’s translation of The Kabbalah Unveiled on their website, proving I think, the suspected link between Kabbalism and Freemasonry.
“And from that skull distilleth a dew upon Him which is external, and filleth His head daily. And from that dew which floweth down from His head, that which is external, the dead are raised up in the world to come. Concerning which it is written, Cant. v. 2: ‘My head is filled with dew.’ It is not written ‘It is full with dew;’ but NMLA, Nimla, ‘it is filled.’ And it is written, Isa. xxvi. 19: ‘The dew of the lights is Thy dew.’ Of the lights–that is, from the brightness of the Ancient One. And by that dew are nourished the holy supernal ones. And this is that manna which is prepared for the just in the world to come. And that dew distilleth upon the ground of the holy apple trees. This is that which is written, Exod. xvi. 14: ‘And when the dew was gone up, behold upon the face of the desert a small round thing.’ And the appearance of this dew is white, like unto the colour of the crystal stone, whose appearance hath all colours in itself. This is that which is written, Num. xi. 7: ‘And its varieties as the varieties of crystal.”
“And that membrane hath an outlet towards Microprosopus, and on that account is His brain extended, and goeth forth by thirty and two paths.
This is that same thing which is written: ‘And a river went forth out of Eden’ (Gen. ii. 7). But for what reason? Because the membrane is (then) opened, neither doth it (completely) enshroud the brain.
Nevertheless the membrane is opened from below. And this is that which we have said: Among the signatures of the letters (is) ThV, Tau, Th; nevertheless He impresseth it as the sign of the Ancient of Days, from Whom dependeth the perfection of knowledge, because He is perfect on every side, and hidden, and tranquil, and silent, like as good wine upon its lees.”
The results of involvement in the programme of the Kabbalah are usually confined within the context of the Freemasonic and Illuminati organisations but there is a semi-public Kabbalah organisation founded in 1922 by Rabbi Yehuda Ashlag called The Kabbalah Centre which has offices throughout the world but mostly in the United States, South America and Europe.
In the 5th October 2015 online edition of The London Evening Standard there is an article detailing some specific complaints about activities taking place at the London centre:
“The London Kabbalah Centre used by Madonna has been infuriating its neighbours who say they were disturbed by a 36-hour chanting session in the building’s car park.
Residents near the Kabbalah Centre in Stratford Place W1, which also counts Gwyneth Paltrow among regulars, say loud prayers, clapping and chanting had kept them awake for an entire weekend.
Westminster City Council’s noise team launched an investigation after being contacted over the weekend, with officers ‘issuing advice’ to the centre.
Katherine Corbett, who lives in a flat overlooking the car park, said the building held mass open-air religious services between Friday evening and the middle of Sunday morning.
‘I was sitting listening to my own music and I still couldn’t hear for the noise,’ she said. ‘They were screaming and shouting. When I heard them on Friday night I took the video, shut my windows and slept in great heat, but I didn’t think it would go on all night.’
The centre is understood to have erected a temporary shelter in the grounds as part of its Sukkot celebrations, a week-long Jewish festival that marks the end of harvest and the Exodus of the Jews from slavery in Egypt.”
The BBC reported on 9th January 2005 how a:
“..senior figure in the controversial Kabbalah Centre – the sect championed by stars including Madonna and Demi Moore – seems likely to spark a storm of protest by saying Jews killed in the Holocaust brought their downfall upon themselves.
Eliyahu Yardeni, of the London Kabbalah Centre, made the astonishing claim to an undercover reporter investigating high-pressure sales techniques employed by the group, which promotes its own brand of beliefs, part ancient Jewish mysticism and part pseudo-science.
Talking about the wartime massacre of the Jews, Mr Yardeni said: ‘Just to tell you another thing about the six million Jews that were killed in the Holocaust: the question was that the Light was blocked. They didn’t use Kabbalah.’
The same article also details cynically fraudulent claims about the Kabbalah Centre’s own brand of ‘healing water’:
“The probe also revealed how Kabbalah Centre representatives claimed bottles of ‘healing’ spring water sold by the group could help cure cancer – and how they sold a batch to a sufferer for hundreds of pounds.
A second investigator, who worked undercover as a Kabbalah Centre volunteer for four months, was told how the Kabbalah water worked, with a devotee explaining: ‘We start with the purest artesian water and then we do the various meditations, injecting energy into it.’
The Kabbalah Centre website explained that a process called Quantum Resonance Technology ‘restructures the intermolecular binding of spring water’.
The investigation discovered the water actually comes from CJC Bottling, a bottling plant in Ontario, Canada, which was the subject of a public health investigation in 2002 into how its water was tested.
CJC was ordered to improve manufacturing techniques, though there was no suggestion that they ever sold polluted water.
Regarding fundraising, the statement went on: ‘As a registered charity, the centre has to fund raise to cover administrative costs and outreach work, the effects of which are felt across the world on a daily basis.’
The centre has launched a US$1m campaign asking followers to donate money so it can send its own brand of Zohar books and water to the victims of the Asian tsunami.
In Israel, the authorities have refused to give the charity a certificate of proper management for three years running because of accounting inadequacies, and in Britain the Charity Commissioners have criticised the centre’s accounts for ‘significant shortcomings in transparency’.”
A final article reported on the Judiaciaryreport.com website regarding the London Kabbalah centre is of a much more serious tenor. The article reports how Phiona Davis, apparently became a victim of mental abuse after becoming involved in Madonna’s Kabbalah centre in London. The website claims that Davis was conned out of 2 million pounds and was spied upon in her home with hidden cameras and illegal telephone wire-tapping. They then made it known to Phiona Davis at meetings what they knew about her. This is the key focus of the phenomenon known as ‘Gang Stalking’, to drive the victim to madness and despair, which, in their system, is the initiation to Kether and so called ‘union’ with God. The website doesn’t quite understand why they did this and is under the belief this was all in order to obtain money from Ms Davis, in fact the whole experience led to Phiona Davis becoming psychotic and this led to her murdering two people:
“Fashion student Phiona Davis reportedly confirmed to police that she had been attending Madonna’s Kabbalah centre in London and told police she was being ‘controlled’ and people from the Kabbalah centre were walking around her flat. A few months later she killed telephone salesman Keith Fernandez by stabbing him 58 times at her home in Green Lanes North London reportedly saying ‘God done good, for this is done through God.’
The next day she killed her grandmother Mary Skerritt by stabbing her 130 times. She then tried to set fire to the flat. She then went outside the flat in Stoke Newington saying ‘I am God, I am the benevolent one, burn the demons inside her.’ ‘You can arrest me but you can’t punish me. Only God can punish me.’ She was also seen holding her arms out saying ‘I am the Messiah.’
Later at Stoke Newington police station she attempted to strangle herself and smeared crosses on the wall in blood and excrement. She shouted at the police, ‘I am the messiah and the King of Kings. I will forgive you all.’
She reportedly told the police she thought her former boyfriend Keith Fernandez was a robot and her grandmother was the devil. She was sent to Broadmoor and can be released only with the express consent of the home secretary.”
The purpose of Kabbalah is precisely to induce schizophrenic illness. This is the attainment of Kether and ‘union’ with God. Hence when Phiona Davis reportedly commented to police and firefighters that she was God/the Messiah in her delusion. As reported by Phiona Davis some month prior to her murdering two people, she was being covertly monitored, followed, spied on and harassed. This was the programme of the Kabbalah, to induce a change in brain chemistry through various personally and psychologically invasive means which can lead to entirely unpredictable consequences.
