The Sword & the Serpent: The Two-Fold Qabalistic Universe (The Magical Philosophy) By Osborne Phillips, Melita Denning

The Melding of Human with Divine

The ultimate goal for every human being is to realize and fulfill his/her Divinity.

No matter what religion or esoteric system, the primary message is the same – that every human person is created in the image of God, and that the “Son of God” is one who has completed the journey. The “Great Plan” is that each person is to evolve and become a “co-creator” to consciously and effectively participate in the evolutionary drama. Each of us has the gift and obligation of responsible action.

As with any journey, a map makes it easier: it provides an overview allowing the user to choose the best path from his starting point to the next rest stop, and then onward towards the ultimate goal of union with the Divine. That’s the “Great Work” we each must undertake.

There are many books on and about Kabbalah but very few about the esoteric Qabalah that specifically guides the esoteric student to the Great Work, employing terms and psychological understanding applicable to the modern student not requiring adherence to any one religious or magical group. You are alone in this work, but you have the support of all who have gone before.

The responsibility and the opportunity for real spiritual development is personal. It is your responsibility. You have the gifts of Mind and Spirit, and this particular book was written to be an effective guide to your personal program. It’s your practical guide.

Here you will find the nature of the universe, and the nature of your own being; you will find the foundations of magical art and the channels of inner power; here the power of symbols is made clear and made practical for your application; here Qabalah and Gnosis are brought together with detailed tables and examples, along with real-life stories illustrating the challenges and triumphs of the magical journey. Now, you must write your own story.
