I call the form of kabbalah I express Hermetic, this differs from the Hebrew kabbalah in it being free of dogma and ownership, and saying this I am in no way reflecting poorly on the Hebrew kabbalah for in reality if there was no Hebrew kabbalah there would be very little to draw from. However, the underlying truth is within all cultures, all religions, all things, we call it shamanism, tantra, the tao, whatever -- I call this unifying thread the Hermetic Kabbalah.
Hermes was accredited by the Egyptians as the God responsible for bringing forth the knowledge of the divine arts, healing, alchemy, astrology, magick, kabbalah. When one takes initiation of a certain degree the title Hermes is assumed -- the scribe of the most high, this is a humble position for the scribe is unimportant - what is of importance is what is revealed.
One of the things that I find so wholesome with the hermetic approach is its embrace of Nature, all of Nature, everything has a place in its holy scheme. This is truly holistic, unifying not creating divisions, delusions of devils and other things to blame, yet via its holistic approach such things can be addressed in an artful way. When there is a unifying principle and one accesses that principle things can return to their rightful place. This may take some contemplation but it is well worth the effort, as the Emerald tablet of thrice great Hermes states "For performing the miracles of the One Thing ; and as all things are from the one, by the mediation of the one, so all things arose from this one thing by adaptation." Holy be it, "the father of it is the sun, the mother thereof is the moon, the wind carried it in its belly, and the nurse of it is the earth." Here we see this One thing threading its way through the elements of Nature, its is the grand quintessence of the alchemist, the blood of the Christ gathered into the grail (Christ had five wounds). The Emerald tablet speaks of this principle as a child - can we assume a Divine child? -- and what of the three magi who went in search of the Christ child, could they be the "thrice great Hermes having the three parts of the philosophy of the whole world." "That which is above is as that which is below." On Earth as it is in Heaven.
This living tradition is once again calling forth a new age, like the morning star in the darkest hour it heralds the arrival of a new dawning sun. As John the Baptist heralded the coming of the light of the world only to have his head taken so does the rooster -- "Oh Abraxas herald once again the coming of the light of gnosis so that we may be illumined by the truth, the light of the world".
