LETTER XLII

 

A LESSON IN THE KABALA

Shall I repeat to you what you saw in your vision of last night—the races of earth as the Sephiroth on the Kabalistic Tree of Life?
            You know more of the kabala than I do; but you would never have known the Kabalistic correspondences of the nations had they not been pointed out to you by the teacher.
            It is true that Germany (Geburah, Mars, Severity, Pachad) has become so extremely severe and Martian that the welfare of the whole Tree is threatened, the balance is upset; and it is through the strength of the United States, shown by a certain Yetziratic Path, and through the prudence of the United States in relation to another Sephira which represents the British Empire, that justice may be reestablished between Britain and Germany.
            The Teacher has been instructing me in the Kabala.

            And you also see by that vision the part which the United States has to take in the future of the world—that of Chesed, Mercy. That is the keynote of the Sixth Race, and Germany thought to establish it—the Sixth Race—in herself by blood and iron! What folly and short-sightedness!
            You need not tell the world where the other races were on the Tree of Life in your vision, save that the three Supernals are not represented by races on this material plane. That much you may state, on my authority, lest some German Kabalist should claim for the Teutonic race the place of Kether. No, the three Supernals are not represented on the material plane. 

            Watch and pray that America may be guided aright. So far, she has been so guided. The great soul of Abraham Lincoln was with President Wilson during those days of retirement. Did I not tell you that he had renounced rest that he might watch over the land he died for, when the day of our own great trial came?
            I shall tell you no more than my judgment dictates, day by day.

            It is well that you were able to rise to the plane of that vision, lest you should become too warlike.
            Now pray that the hands of the President may be upheld, and that his soul may be strengthened by the living soul of America’s greatest son, Abraham Lincoln.
            The future is on the laps of the gods. 

May 15.
