Presentation


Lighthouses on the path that leads us to God.


We often use the image of the scale to express not only the idea of intermediary between the bottom and the top, but also that of hierarchy: social scale, scale of values, scale of colors, etc. Likewise there is an angelic hierarchy which makes the link between man and God, is symbolized by "Jacob's ladder" and represented by the Sephirotic Tree. For our good spiritual development, it is necessary to know the existence of these celestial entities, because they are like beacons on the path which leads us to God.


‘Think for a minute about what electricity is and how we use it, and you will have some notion, however approximate, of God. We use electricity to light and heat our houses, and power all kinds of machines and appliances, but we have to be very careful of how we handle it, for it is easy to cause an accident. Direct contact with an electric current can be fatal. In order to harness and use it without danger, we have to channel it through transformers. The same can be said of God: God is like a pure current of electricity which has to pass through transformers before it reaches us. And the transformers that God uses are the countless luminous beings that populate the heavens, known to tradition as the choirs of angels or angelic hierarchies. It is through them that we receive divine life; it is through them that we can be in contact with God.’
