The Tree is the Grand configuration of all the paths, created in such a way, that it enables a being from what ever tradition they might hail from, to still utilize it. It works from a physical perspective, to a emotional, mathematical, energetic, light, force, expansion, contraction, creative, destructive, and infinitely many other different forms of perspectives. In my next paper I will explain in more vivid detail, what my understandings are in regards to the Tree of life. As for now, the best thing I can do for you, is to give a short explanation of those things that I have had experienced, while directly under the influence of Malkuth.
Having no guidance in the beginning of my work, I had worked within the rays of Malkuth for three years. For what would normally have taken a year or so for me to accomplish, took me three. Thank creation, that it did. I first learn about the occult traditions in jail, by being introduced to Kundalini Yoga. Four months I worked upon rising my Kundalini, which by the way I had no real rising. Even so, what was happening, was that I was laying down the foundation from which, I would later gain strength to accomplish greater things. One year later, having strived for what I thought, was a pointless effort, started to pay off, as I was introduced to Patajali's Sutras. From there, I came upon some of Crowley's works, then the Golden Dawns, then the O.T.O.'s. From that I started to acquire learning's of the Kabbala, Hermetics, Alchemy, and then the Solomontic workings. Although, I learned of these things, I truly did not receive initiation into those things until another year past.
The way I was initiated, or introduced into the higher formations of my path, or in other words, the paths of the Tree of Life, was through watching, and becoming involved with a Goetic Magician. The details of what I went through do not matter so much, as to what was brought about by those experiences that I had.
I was constantly kept on my toes, just in order to keep from becoming a threat to this individual. I was accosted both physically, mentally, emotionally, and psychically. Always, was I in need to keep my mouth in check, my thoughts reined in, and my actions kept secret. My physical possessions were constantly looked through, my diaries were read, my magical tools were programmed for the others personal benefit. I had been cursed, I had spells put upon me, my energy was taken, my dreams attached and my very resolve challenged every step of the way. The pay off for sticking through these things, was that I was introduced into the Solomonic works, the Goetia, the Red Dragon, High Witchcraft, Sorcery and numerous other forms of magic. I learned what it would take for me to become an adept, as well as what could happen, if I were to stray from the light.
In the end of that year, I had experienced ten years worth of ritual workings, torn down some of my illusions, overcome my fears of death, learned what magic was truly about, started to work with the elements, deepened my understandings of the work and all its aspects, learn what formations of being I am to work with, was introduced to my Guardian Angel, learned psychic defense, as well as things unexplainable, and unbelievable.
Each of us, has a purpose, what that is, only the self can know. Sometimes, it takes having to go through many trials, in order that we might come to see our path, and in that, gaining strength to walk it. This is my path; hard, dry, scary, and most of all, lonely. I tell you these things, not so that you will repeat them, but that you might come to see what another has gone through. For just maybe, it might give you comfort, and guidance to do the right thing. May you be Blessed upon Your Own Path. By Suba http://www.digital-brilliance.com/kab/tobias010.htm
