The Illuminati’s Coming to Get You… NOT!

The Illuminati\'s Coming to Get You... NOT!A question I received: We learn that our world is a reflection of the Upper World – “As it is above, so it is below.” We also learn that all the disorder among us is a result of our evolving egoism. One only needs to take a look at the world and our current situation to understand that it is all true. Nonetheless, secret theories circulate about families and clans called “Illuminati,” who engage in magic rituals in secret societies. Their main goal is to not only to gain world domination, but to gain the power of the Creator. Is there any truth to this?

My Answer: There are no secrets or miracles in our world, no matter how much we might want them to exist. We want to believe that the world is magical in some way, and more interesting than what we see. However, everything rests upon strict laws of nature. If one knows these laws, one can expand the limits of the perceivable world. We can develop additional qualities within ourselves and as such, feel a broader world. However, all of this also happens according to the physical laws of equivalence of form.

A question I received: All of this talk I hear about Kabbalah, regarding miracles and abilities to see supernatural occurrences – do these things indicate that one is advanced in Kabbalah?

My Answer: There are no miracles, mysticism, or anything of what you wrote in Kabbalah. Read Baal HaSulam’s article “The Essence of the Wisdom of Kabbalah,” and others (see the right sidebar’s “Kabbalah Source Materials” section for Baal HaSulam’s materials).

  1. I don’t get it. We are trying to connect with a spiritual being we can’t perceive, called the creator, who in fact is in charge of everybody`s fate and wants us to strive for him and only him, by studying books, and you tell me there is nothing magical or mystic about it?

  2. As I see it, the first mistake in the asking of your question (Astrid), is that we are not trying to connect with a ‘being’ at all. We are trying to connect with, to sense, the Eternal Reality, or in the language used, The Creator. I too have problems understanding at times, and I find I need to explore the language, accept that it has limitations in describing that which we cannot yet sense. Thus the language of branches.

  3. Is it possible that a person that has achived the upper world can use this new awakening for ” Evil ”?

  4. Astrid,

    If I am just starting to understand this, in “baby steps” we only sense these things as “magical or mystical” because of our limited perceptions, time, space, etc.
    It is all within us, this has been said by almost all ancient teachings if read “rightly” , from Plato, Egypt, the Greeks etc.Some that predate Kabbala.
    Kabbala which I’M JUST STARTING, seems to tie all these together, and tells you how one may achieve this.
