So I saw book that showed YHVH as Fire,Water,Air, Earth. But I have seen it elsewhere where people have stacked them
If we go that way, we have water above air. Usually water falls through air, What is the purpose of this arrangement? It does not follow the tree of life, there we go from pure spirit to physical so far as I know. Why wouldn’t it go Fire, Air, Water, Earth.?
Because according to hermetic teachings the first two elements were fire and water. Air is the element that travels between the two, and earth is a combination of all the other elements.
Actually not, according to hermetics ether is the first element and from ether other elements were created. We can take ether or akasha as the concept of God. Thats what i understood from IIH.
Apologies, im referring specifically to the tetragrammaton.
Oh okay, sorry for the misunderstanding
