Lesson 7 – The Olamot, Dimensions of Being, Mind & Emotion
The difference between the older Talmudic/Hekhalot understanding of worlds, as distinct places for astral travel, and the later Zoharic/Ari'zal understanding of worlds as dimensional planes of altered consciousness.
This lesson discusses the worlds of Adam Kadmon (Keter), Atzilut (Hokhma) and Beriah (Binah). These three unite to form a concentric whole of consciousness, where Keter is the inner “I,” Hokhma is the inner “I AM,” and Binah is the inner “I AM WHAT I AM.”
This lesson places emphasis on the practical interactions between the unconscious (Hokhma), the conscious mind (Binah), and the emotions (Yetzirah). Meditative experiences are described.
Also discussed is the nature of parallel universes (or dimensions) that would operate in accordance to the laws of physics that would dominate therein, these other laws would define that realm as one of these other dimensional worlds.
