Tree of Life – in short
In the tradition of the initiates the Tree of Life is a map of the steps in the spiritual world.
Rather than a journey, it is a transformation, a metamorphosis or transition in dimensions.
It is about how to refine, accept and improve, shape, mould and perfect your temple, to open yourself to the subtle worlds.
To make better choices and let the luminous, harmonious, beautiful and transparent take more and more part.
It is letting go of matter and ego, desire, needs and belongings and focusing on aligning with bigger circles, bigger holons, being of service to humanity, Gaia and the higher worlds.
Let us look at this path from the Tree of Life, sephira by sephira.
