Daat

Sefirot and Letters

This picture is of the kabbalistic Tree of Life.  The names of the Sefirot are written around the circles.  Although Daat (Knowledge or Consciousness) is not usually included as one of the Ten Sefirot, this picture includes Daat (the white circle).

Slanted Sefirot #3

In this picture I used the same slanted Tree of Life motif that I used in ‘One Together’ and ‘Waves and Particles’.  In those pictures I included Daat (Knowledge) as the eleventh circle or Sefirah.  Daat is the interface between the upper three Sefirot of the head and the lower seven Sefirot of the body.  It can be seen as consciousness itself.  Daat unites all ten Sefirot. 

Waves and Particles

The Sefirot are often described as emanations of God’s Infinite Light.  The Hebrew word for ‘light’ starts with the letter Aleph.  Kabbalists believe that God is One and can be found both in the Heavens and upon the Earth (God is both transcendent and immanent). 

Ten Sefirot of Nothingness

Their vision is like the appearance of lightning
and their limit has no end. 
They speak of them as running and returning. 
They rush to His saying like a whirlwind,
and before His throne they bow.
(Sefer Yetzirah)

Thirteen Sefirot

There are several different forms of the Tree of Life diagram that is used in the Kabbalah to represent the Sefirot.  I use several of these forms in the various picture that I make.  In the Lurianic tradition, Daat is not included as one of the Ten Sefirot because Daat is the ‘outside’ of Keter and the ‘inside’ of Tiferet.  In these diagrams Malchut is fallen, as I explained in my picture ‘Ten Sefirot of Nothingness’. 
 

Sefirot Number Ten


In this picture I used the same slanted Tree of Life motif that I used in ‘One Together’ and ‘Waves and Particles’.  In those pictures I included Daat (Knowledge) as the eleventh circle or Sefirah.  Daat is the interface between the upper three Sefirot of the head and the lower seven Sefirot of the body.  It can be seen as consciousness itself.  Daat unites all ten Sefirot. 

One Together

The Ten Sefirot (Spheres of Being) that are discussed in the Kabbalah are often represented by the symbol that can be seen in this picture.  This symbol is called the Tree of Life.  It is comprised of circles or wheels that are joined together by a network of lines.  The Tree of Life represents the human form as a reflection of the entire universe.  The upper three circles (Sefirot) represent our head (or the Heavens).  The lower four Sefirot represent our lower body (or the Earth).  The middle three Sefirot represent our upper body (or the Atmosphere).  The

One Breath

One is the
Breath of the Living God.
This is Holy Breath.

Breathe in.  Be aware that you are alive because you breathe.  This one breath of Life is holy. 
It is holy because it is from God who is One. 
Every living being breathes in this same One Breath of the Living God. 
Ruach Hakodesh - Holy Breath - is about knowing that you are breathing in God every time you inhale.
