Lesson 5 - The Evolution of Consciousness in Adam Kadmon, the Lights of the Nose.
Sha'ar TaNTA, Chapter 2. Once the light of the symbolic Ear comes forth, it is followed by the light of the symbolic Nose. This lesson analyses R. Vital's vivid symbols, and explains their psychological, and archetypal meanings.
This lesson also focuses on the process of consciousness, and contemplation themselves, and offers practical insights into how their psychic functions operate. The lights of the symbol Ear and Nose represent an evolving state of construct consciousness that has not yet congealed into the form of a focused thought. Focus is placed not so much on what R. Vital sees, but rather on how and why he is seeing it. This class offers keen insights into the meditative process of observing and analyzing consciousness, practices observed by many of the great global meditative traditions.
