Delving Into The Esoterica – Eliphas Levi

We prefer the word “light” to the word “magnetism,” because it is more traditional in esoteric, occult teachings and expresses in a more complete and perfect manner the nature of the secret agent. There is, in truth, the liquid and drinkable gold of the masters in alchemy; the word “OR” the French word for “gold” comes from the Hebrew “OHR אוֹר” which signifies “light.” The “Ohr” Light and its origin is in the Divine essence, as the 10 Sephirot “The 10 Divine emanations or attributes” that reveal the unknowable G’dhead, to creation and channel the creative life-force to all levels of existence, the 10 attributes of G’d do not represent the Divine essence. As many Kabbalists differentiated between the manifestations of G’ds “forms of “light” and their origin in the Divine essence is the luminary, as like the sun, moon and the stars. as “Ohr” Light stems from the “Ma’ohr מָאוֹר” the Luminary.

*G’d saw that it, ‘the luminaries’ was good …
Bereshit ~ Genesis 1:14:15
And G’d said, “Let there be luminaries in the expanse of the heavens, toseparate between the day and between the night, and they shall be forsigns and for appointed seasons and for days and years, and they shall befor luminaries in the expanse of the heavens to shed light upon the earth
And it was so*.

As to be a luminary is to be a guiding light to others, and throw light upon Darkness and ignorance as only light can drive out darkness, so be that light, be your own luminary, remembering that the creator has sent us luminaries before, Great and Wise men and women showing us, how to walk that honest path, that path of “Tiphereth תפארת” THE PATH of The SUN KEEPERS As only we can decide whether we will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness. Fighting that good fight of internal violence of spirit, and externally for truth justice and liberty, Through the powers of the Most-High, We keep on surfacin’ Through the powers of the Most-High we will keep on keeping on.

What do you wish?” they asked the candidate in every initiation: “To see the light,” should be their answer. The name of illuminati which one ordinarily gives to adepts, has then been generally very badly interpreted by giving to it a mystical sense, as if it signified men whose intelligence believes itself to be lighted by a miraculous day. ‘Illuminati’ means simply, knowers and possessors of the light, either by the knowledge of the great magical agent, or by the rational and ontological notion of the absolute.The universal agent is a force tractable and subordinate to intelligence.”
