Practical Qabalah

The path of the Sword is the way of emanations; its hilt is in Kether and the highest heavens and its tip is in the earth of the Kingdom of Malkuth; it is like unto a bolt of lightening striking the earth; it is the way of wisdom, of power and magick, of the manifestation of morality, and of religion.
The path of the serpent is the way of return; its tail is in the earth from whence it came, and its head reaches up to wear the crown of Kether in the highest heavens; it sheds its skin continuously; it is the way of Gnosis, of transformation and transmutation, of understanding, and of the growth of the individual.




There are two paths upon the Tree of Life, each presenting one aspect of the practical Qabalistic work. Utilmately the distinction between these paths is false, however it is useful for practical reasons to make this distinction. The two paths are the way of the Sword and the way of the Serpent.
The sword represents the downward path of the Divine as it manifests upon the earth. This is the way of creation. Upon the path of the sword a student learns about ritual, morality, magick, and other such things. The path of the Sword has particular resonance with the Pillar of Severity.
The serpent represents the upward path of material existence reaching back up towards its divine origins. This is the way of return. Upon the path of the Serpent a student learns about meditation, personal growth, and the quest for knowledge and understanding. The path of the Serpent has particular resonance with the pillar of Mercy.
 
On the right hand side of this section, alongside this text, the fundamental practices of Qabalah will be introduced. They are given in the order that a student new to Qabalah should approach them, familiarising themselves with the practice of each one before moving on to the next.
