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’. 
 

Tree of Life

Life is a dynamic process of balancing between extremes - between hot and cold, between activity and rest, between expanding outward and contracting inward. When it's cold, we seek Fire to warm ourselves up.  When it's hot, we look for Water to cool ourselves down.

The lower half of this picture shows the root system of a Tree, resting in the cool, wet Earth.

The Holy Palace

The Sefer Yetzirah (Book of Creation) teaches the mysteries of the Twenty-two Hebrew letters.  The alphabet is presented there as three groups of letters.  One group is called the Three Mothers.  The second group is called the Seven Doubles.  The third group is called the Twelve Elementals. 
 

Aleph Sunrise

The sun and the sea in this picture tell us that the Heavens and the Earth are One - the gematria (number value) of the first Hebrew letter Aleph א.  Do you see this letter Aleph in the circle here?
This scene can either be a sunrise or sunset, but we know that it is not the sun rising or setting, it is the earth spinning relative to the sun.
