About The Key of Wisdom
Emerald Tablet 3 is about the Key of Wisdom. It is a magnificent piece of text. The major part of the Key of Wisdom is for most people quite well to understand. It speaks about things like wisdom is power, power is wisdom and that these two perfect eachother as a whole. Other parts speak about that silence is of great profit, and that fear is a bondage.
We know it is true. Most of us will understand it quite effortless. We've possibly heard it before. And yet, are we able to live it? How often do we catch ourselves judging or condemning others? Most of us do it all the time.
How often are you willing to do something for just a song? Or give away precious knowledge just for free? Regardless it's your enemy or friend? Or just to be when someone's continuously chattering, and just to listen attentively without ulterior thoughts?
As long as you're not willing to do these simple things these texts are nothing more than useless wallpaper or tiles wisdom. It's about living it, and meditation helps to apply that.
Wisdom is power and power is wisdom,
one with each other, perfecting the whole.
Be thou not proud, O man, in thy wisdom.
Discourse with the ignorant as well as the wise.
If one comes to thee full of knowledge,
listen and heed, for wisdom is all.— Thoth
Thoth mentions often the Law, and says things like the Law is ALL. The Law Thoth speaks about is of course not the law of men. It is the universal Law, the law of the mathematical Universe.
The forces responsible for the phenomena, our physical world, is called the noumena. The noumena is the invisible perfect platonic realm.
The thing in itself. The real thing. The pure balanced mathematical world. Unprovable, untestable, and invisible.
Every action you take, every thought you think, every word you speak has effect on the invisible noumena. Because we are ultimately souls that interact and inter- fere with the noumena, we cannot understand it when we take actively part in it.
The wise men is silent, without action, and without thoughts. Only then you are able to grasp the pure logical noumena (intuitively), because your interaction with the noumena is no longer present.
Overstepping the Law is basically living your Ego instead of your True Self. Punishment as Thoth calls it is then assured. As the Ego often says: "why is this happening to me?". Because it probably was the boomerang effect of earlier, seemingly unrelated actions. The Ego mind lives in separation, and is unable to grasp anything beyond the material intellectual world.
Be in the world, but not of the world. Meditation is one of the main keys. And here introduces Thoth something new, something very powerful.
THREE, FOUR, FIVE AND SIX, SEVEN,
EIGHT, NINE are the titles of the Masters of men.— Thoth
Three to Nine
The tablets are speaking of seven specific numbers three to nine. One and two are missing, and that has one distinct reason - one is a point and two is a line, and they cannot be depicted in two dimensions.
Imagining the colored polygons below during meditation while you concentrate on that specific chakra is an immense powerful exercise. One that "Opens the door to the Kingdom of Light."
I cannot give you an answer yet as to why it works like this. Maybe in the future.
The Seven Chakras and How to Depict Them 2-Dimensional
Five Platonic Solids and Physical Universe
There seem to be connections between Plato and Thoth.
Plato spoke about Atlantis, and Plato also spoke about the fundamental building blocks of the universe, the five Platonic solids.
It seems that Plato was clearly onto something, although it seemed to be incomplete. Plato's building blocks are THREE, FOUR, and FIVE. The regular triangle, the square, and the regular pentagon. The three basic building blocks of the phenomena, the physical universe - matter.
SEVEN, EIGHT and NINE, are the building blocks of the noumena, the invisible universe - the mind. SIX, the heart can be regarded as the center of both the invisible and the visible universe, which is zero. That is what the Pythagorean Illuminati call the monad, and stands at the root of everything.
Meditate on the symbols I give thee.
Keys are they, though hidden from men.
Reach ever upward, O Soul of the morning.
Turn thy thoughts upward to Light and to Life.
Find in the keys of the numbers I bring thee,
light on the pathway from life unto life.
Seek ye with wisdom.
Turn thy thoughts inward.
Close not thy mind to the flower of Light.
Place in thy body a thought-formed picture.
Think of the numbers that lead thee to Life.— Thoth
