Picture above from The Phoenix by Manly P. Hall (p. 171-173) The initiation into the Egyptian Mysteries that took place in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid.  The purpose of the ritual was to separate the soul of the candidate from his body for a period of three days.  The candidate experienced a ‘Satanic new birth’ whereby he thought himself to be a god.

After these things I saw another angel descending from heaven, with great authority; and the earth was lighted up from his glory.  And he cried out with a strong voice, saying: “She has fallen! Babylon the Great has fallen, and she has become a dwelling place of demons and a lurking place of every unclean exhalation and a lurking place of every unclean and hated bird!”

-Revelation 18:1-2, NWT

Trees of Perfection

Through the will of Small Face, some return back to the Creation from the ultimate experience in the Roots of the Tree. For such souls, the Tree takes special form as “Trees of Perfection” for whom the illusion of the Fall into dualistic consciousness of Sefirah Kingdom no longer exists. Awakening in the path of devotion to Small Face (called bhakti yoga in India) results in the transformation of the soul into a “Tree of Perfection Way of the Alef a of Unity”. On this Perfect Tree, the power of consciousness (Sans. Chitshakti) concentrates in the heart center (Sefirah Beauty/Last). A yogi who has awakened to Vast Face consciousness via the path of concentration and discrimination between the Real and the Illusory (raja or jnana yoga in India) comes back in as a “Tree of Perfection Way of the Ayin i”. On this Perfect Tree, the power of consciousness concentrates in the throat center in the visible Sefirah Knowledge/First.

A few rare souls are able to stand in the gate between the two Faces. This station of consciousness is called vijnana in Sanskrit. It is alluded to by the “Tree of Peace and Perfection”, wherein the power of consciousness is balanced between the throat and heart centers. The oddest Tree in the Sefer HaShmoth is the gateless form of the Tree of Perfection called the “Tree of the Congregation”. The transmission of the Sefer HaShmoth yielded no further information on the nature of this Tree. Other primary qabalistic sources also yield Trees of Perfection, which will be presented in subsequent sections.
