The Tree of Life Expressed - by Hermetic Ways

The Tree of Life


The Absolute or abstract space is that which is without attributes or limitations. Also known as sunyata, void, emptiness, Parabrahman, Adi-buddha, and many other names.

In Kabbalah, the Absolute is described as three aspects:

1. Ain אין: “Nothingness”
2. Ain Soph אין סוף: “Limitless”
3. Ain Soph Aur אין סוף אור: “Limitless Light”

In Gnosticism, these are the three highest Aeons:

13th Aeon: The Ain
12th Aeon: The Ain Soph
11th Aeon: The Ain Soph Aur


“The Absolute is the Being of all Beings. The Absolute is that which Is, which always has Been, and which always will Be. The Absolute is expressed as Absolute Abstract Movement and Repose. The Absolute is the cause of Spirit and of Matter, but It is neither Spirit nor Matter. The Absolute is beyond the mind; the mind cannot understand It. Therefore, we have to intuitively understand Its nature.” – Samael Aun Weor, The Initiatic Path in the Arcana of Tarot and Kabbalah
