Ezekiel 1: Four Creatures of Kabbalah and Alchemy



Four Creatures

And it came to pass in the thirtieth year (the ten sephiroth of the third kabbalistic world, Yetzirah), in the fourth (Chesed), in the fifth day of that month (in the enlighten consciousness, Geburah, dominating the four elements, namely, Malkuth, Yesod, Hod and Netzach), as I (Ani אני) was among the captives by the river (פישון Pishon or) כבר Chebar that (is the mysterious river of the heavenly astral solar light, which flows forth from Ain Soph Aur into 'כ' Kether and 'ב' Binah in Atziluth, the left side of the 'ר' Rosh-Head, and from it into the throat - Daath - the upper Eden - and into Geburah in Briah, down to Hod and thereafter into Yesod in Yetzirah, but because of fornication of Adam in the garden - Malkuth - it dried up and ceased to flow into the Consciousness, which became a slave of lust, and therefore in captivity in Assiah, world of matter and action); yet, (through sexual alchemy) the heavens (of Yetzirah) were opened, and (through the sahasrara chakra) I saw (מראות אלהים Marauth Elohim) Mirrors Images of Elohim. In the fifth day of the month (in the enlighten consciousness, Geburah, dominating the moon-th), which was the fifth year (fifth initiation) of king (the Malachim in Yetzirah) Jehoiachin's captivity.          

The Logos or word of יהוה (Chokmah in Daath) came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son of (contempt) Buzi, in (the triangle of priesthood, Yetzirah) the land of the (שדים Sheddim) Spirits (of the Priesthood of שדי Shaddai-Yesod) by the (astral light of the) river Chebar; and the hand (the יד Iod or the סוד sod, secret of יסוד Yesod) of (the name) יהוה Iod-Havah was there upon him. (The secret is: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, Elohim hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. Genesis 3:3).

And I looked, and, behold, a (רוח Ruach) spirit came out of a great (akashic) cloud in the north (sephirah Kether), and a fire infolding itself as the brightness (of the Solar Absolute) was about it, and out of the midst thereof an electric sparkle, out of the midst of the (solar) fire.   

Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four (חיות Chaioth) living spirits And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of Adam (And אדם Adam (Aleph 1 + Daleth 4 + Mem 40 = 9, the ninth sphere, Yesod) lived an hundred and thirty years (130 = 4, the 4 inferior sephiroth, namely, Malkuth, Yesod, Hod and Netzach), and (thereafter) he is generating in his own likeness, after his image (in Tiphereth, Geburah and Chesed); and he is calling his name שת Seth (Fire, Shin 300 + the Cross, Tav 400 = 7; the triune spirit within the four bodies of gold) - Genesis 5: 2).

And every one had four faces (four ways to perceive the four tattvas: vayu, tejas, apas and prittvi), and every one had four wings ( soul of the mercury).

And their legs were straight legs (Ob and Od); and the (male-female cloven) sole of their feet (in Malkuth) was like the (cloven) sole of a calf's foot (tin and copper): and they sparkled like the color of a burnished (serpent of) brass. 

And (וידו אדם Va'Iodu Adam) hands (sense of touch, the Iod-Phallus) of Adam under their wings ( soul of the mercury) on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings.  

Their wings ( soul of the mercury) were joined one to another (in Malkuth, Yesod, Hod and Netzach); they turned not when they went (up through the spinal medulla); they (their salt) went every one straight forward (as sublimated salt through the spinal medulla).

As for the likeness of their faces (or fecundated mercury), they four had the face of Adam (knowledge of Yesod, the life and light of the salt of the water), and the face of a lion (the action and the movement of the astral light and fire of salt of the sulfur in Hod), on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox (the diligent action of the salt of the earth Malkuth) on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle (the intelligence of the salt of the mercury in Netzach).

Thus were their faces (or fecundated mercuries): and their wings (or souls of the mercury) were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another (in Malkuth, Yesod, Hod and Netzach), and (the) two (polarities, Od and Ob) covered their bodies.

And they went every one straight forward (up through the spinal medulla): whither the spirit (or soul of the mercury) was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went (up through the spinal medulla).

As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire (sulfuric salt), and like the appearance of lamps (in the chakras): it went up and down among the (חיות Chaioth) living spirits; and the fire (sulfur) was bright, and out of the (sexual) fire went forth (the) lightning (of the Kundalini ) .

And the (חיות Chaioth) living spirits ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of (the) lightning (of the serpent of brass).

Now as I beheld the (חיות Chaioth) living spirits, behold one wheel (sephirah) upon the earth (the body) by the (חיות Chaioth) living spirits, with his four faces (as ברהמא Brahma or אברהם Abrahm, the creator in Atziluth, Briah, Yetzirah and Assiah).

The appearance of the wheels (sephiroth) and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness (when together as the sphinx): and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel (or sephiroth: Netzach, Hod and Malkuth) in the middle of a wheel (Yesod).

When they went, they went (as the tetragrammaton) upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went.

As for their rims (or the circular outer space part of the sephiroth), they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rims were full of eyes (stars) round about them four (in Atziluth, Briah, Yetzirah and Assiah).

And when the (חיות Chaioth) living spirits went, the wheels (sephiroth) went by them: and when (through sexual alchemy) the (חיות Chaioth) living spirits (salt, sulfur and mercury) were lifted up from the (salt of the) earth, the wheels (sephiroth) were lifted up (up through the spinal medulla).

Whithersoever the spirit (the soul of the mercury) was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit (or soul of the mercury) of the (חיות Chaioth) living spirit was in the wheels (sephiroth).

When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the (salt of the) earth (up through the spinal medulla), the wheels (sephiroth) were lifted up over against them: for the spirit (or soul of the mercury) of the (חיות Chaioth) living spirit was in the wheels (sephiroth in Assiah, Yetzirah, Briah and Atziluth).

And the likeness of the firmament (Tiphereth) upon the heads of the (חיות Chaioth) living creature (the sphinx) was as the colour of the terrible crystal (crystalized soul ), stretched forth over their heads (in Briah) above (in tiphereth).

And under the firmament (in Yetzirah) were their (ida and pingala or Ob and Od) wings straight (into Tiphereth, their consciousness) , the one (entwined) toward the other: every one had two, which covered on this (male) side, and every one had two, which covered on that (female) side, of their bodies (in Assiah).

And when (during sexual alchemy) they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of the great waters (of Yesod), as the voice of the Almighty (שדי Shaddai), the voice of speech (in Daath), as the noise of an host: when they stood (when sexual alchemy was finished), they let down their wings.

And there was a voice from the firmament (tiphereth) that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings.

And (in Briah) above the firmament (of Yetzirah in tiphereth) that was over their heads (in their central nervous system or central column) was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was (Chesed) the likeness as the appearance of Adam (kadmon) above upon it (in Atziluth).

And I saw as the colour of amber (the three mother letters or Kether, Chokmah and Binah), as the appearance of fire (ש) round about within it, from the appearance of his loins (Yesod, sexual region) even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of (ש) fire (of chastity) , and it had brightness (of the Solar Absolute or Ain Soph Aur) round about.

As the appearance of (the seven colors of) the bow (of the sun, Apollo) that is in the (akashic) cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of יהוה Iod-Havah (Chokmah). And when I saw it, I (as Chesed) fell upon my face, and I (Tiphereth) heard a voice of one (Logos) that spoke. 

And he (the Iod) said unto me, Son ( soul ) of Adam, stand upon (Ob and Od) thy feet, and I will speak (face to face) unto thee.
