"Adonai or Adanay" in the Tree of Light refers to the work of the Lords, for Adonai is the name used in OAHSPE to designate the Lords. I would interpret that to mean this is a representation of the work of the Lords, expressing the "Light" of Jehovih as it manifested on our planet.
One thing which immediately catches the eye is the time-line. Anything to do with a time- line in OAHSPE is helpful. This time-line, called "Years Ago,” and states that 8,900 years ago, was No. 1 on the Tree of Light. By examining the Tree, we find No.1 at the bottom of the tree on the left, "Zarathustrian.” . We know the Tree is a metaphor for the growth of the Light of the Creator through the Lords, and so from the foundation of the teachings of Zarathustra No. 1 we can move easily from event to event to the culmination in No. 15 “Faithism and Kosmonism Universal Religion”.
After you have read through the "Tree" and the time-line, look at the numbers 2 and 3:
- HEBREW RELIGION Founded BY ABRAHAM. 5,900 YEARS AGO
- KABBALISTIC PHILOSOPHY perhaps 5,900 or between 5,900 and 4,000 years ago. The dating of Kabbalistic Philosophy so early is very important today because of the speculation by some readers of OAHSPE that Newbrough inserted Masonic teachings into OAHSPE. Trance work tells us the three tablets mentioned above are the foundation of much spiritual work in OAHSPE because the structure of the three tablets are in the Kabbilistic pattern of Three Columns; one thought of as Positive (Going Forth) and one thought of as Negative (Receptive), with the central Column leading directly to the Creator. The Kabbilistic pattern is seen throughout the world with its ancient symbols that lead the spiritual study upward to understanding and realizing the Presence of the Creator. Jim Dennon when he looked at the patterns of symbols in Saphah did not recognize them as ancient Kabblistic teaching and mentioned that they were similar to Masonic teaching. It is well documented and easily researched in encyclopedias and on-line articles on the Mason that in 1717 the Masons came into being and borrowed ancient spiritual teachings and symbols for their use. The ancient three column pattern of Jewish Kabbilistic teaching was one thing that was adapted by the Masons. This also applies to the symbols, yet they are perhaps more ancient than the pattern of the Kabbalah itself. To the right of the Tree of Light, toward the bottom is a list of the symbols used in all the branches of the Adoni Tree of Light, symbols given by the Lords. Other groups borrowed these symbols: for example, the chalice is seen in Christianity, and the triangle, cross, sun and circle are seen all over Europe in ancient Rock carvings as old as 11,700 years.
All the information above on the Masons and Kabbalah is easily and quickly verified. The Masons in 1717 used symbols from Hebrew Kabbalistic study that had been used for thousands of years. Newbrough did not borrow Masonic teaching, the Masons borrowed ancient teachings found in the Kabbalah and ancient rock carvings in Europe.
It would seem this Tree of Light was drawn around 1850 in preparation for inclusion in OAHSPE. I had always been confused about the different times designated by "Arc of Kosmon," "Era of Kosmon". I wondered why OAHSPE did not explain it. After studying the Tree of Light I realized that given with OAHSPE this tablet holds the definitions of Arc and Era. The Tree tells us it was drawn one year after the Earth crossed into the Arc of Kosmon, and 66 years after the Earth entered the Kosmon Era. Therefore, according to this chart, the Era of Kosmon began 65 years before the Arc of Kosmon. The dates calculated from a time called “NOW”.
But how to find when "NOW" is, according to this picture of the Adonai Section of the Tree of Light? Careful research revealed that while there is no firm date when the Chassidene Order was established it is sometimes said that it was formed "approximately" in 1750, placing “Now” around 1850.
Considerable information is in this Table drawn approximately in --- 1850
1 year ago Faithism Kosmonism Universal Religion No.15--- 1849 Arc aprox.
60 years ago the Modern Order of Mystics is founded No.14 --- 1790 aprox.
66 years ago we entered the Kosmon Era No.13 --- 1784 Era aprox
100 years ago Chassidene Order No.12 approximately---1750
Superficial research indicates that the Chassidene Order is related to Judaism and uses the Kabbalah. The time of the formation of the Masons in 1717 in England causes me to wonder if the Lords considered the Masons a Chassidene Order. More research is needed on the Chassidene Order.
As Dennon often said, “…research for another day”.
The Masons borrowed teaching and symbolism given thousands of years before the Masons formed in 1717.
Did Newbrough put Masonic symbolism in OAHSPE? No.
The Masons borrowed many ancient symbols that had been used by many religions for thousands of years. Thus, some Faithist symbolism is seen today in the work of the Masons.
An important teaching of Faithism is Free Will, and thus Faithists have responsibility for their decisions. Free Will is something that students of OAHSPE have, but it is also something that students of OAHSPE need to grant to others. Faithists who disagree with the Book of Saphah have the Free Will to make their own spiritual choices; and Free Will should be extended to those Faithists who find meaning in the study of Saphah.
