Adam Kadmon (Keterim)

This image is called the Adam Kadmon, (Hebrew, “primal man“) and represents the primordial, pre-created Man, an image of the Godhead that existed before any other divine emanation. It is a vertical arrangement of the four letters of the Tetragrammaton, the four letter name of God as given to Moses in the Hebrew Bible. In this shape, they represent Keterim, the first reflection or image of the Ain Sof. The image is derived from the book of Ezekiel, where the “Divine Glory” is described as appearing in the shape of a man.

This is very powerful symbol to me. How many people see the same?
I made a blogpost about it here: http://tiberiasfury.blogspot.com/2014/10/true-death-religion.html

“In the beggining was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. The same was in the beggining with God.” Wow! Too bad we got ha satan wanting to be tht word and delivering this system of magic to mankind to reach some false euphoric feeling of the divine when all they gotta do is wait. Smh
