On the original Tree of Life the sixth sepheroth is Tipheret; Harmony, Beauty, The Higher Self. On the tree in Yesod the sixth sepheroth is Ego. From the perspective of these analyzes, the Self, or Higher Self, is you as a unique aspect of the Whole. All that is, is merely a focused personification of an aspect of the One. From a human to a fly, from an atom to a universe, from A sharp to G. Your Self is the personification of a single aspect of the One. It needs to be cherished and respected. The Ego is the interaction of this divine spark with the environment it has chosen to bless; a chance at harmonic interaction between a perfect note and a conglomerate of frequencies we call ‘real life’. The Ego is our self in real time and faced with doing the grunt work of trying to harmonize with everything that’s not our internal Self. But it can always be done based on Phi.i

The Ego is the guard at the door to the Self. His duty to the ensure that the Self fulfills its prime directive, to shine. He is steadfast and will do anything required to screen the Self from potential disharmony and accept those notes the Self can relate to. The ultimate aim is to increase the harmony. He has the ability to influence both the mind and the emotions and the self image reflected in the Mirror. He is very powerful but in reality is rather simple. He follows one directive - be the Front Man of the Self.

The Self, like its Original, simply IS. We DO. The Self is the perfect crystal of a perfect Consciousness, impervious to interacts, outside time and space. Its up to us to apply this perfection into our duality environment overcoming pains, loves, negative and positive effects of physicality. So who fashions the Ego? Who designs the masks? His orders are handed to him by the Inner Child early in it’s existence. If the Inner Child is not nourished and given it’s right to grow and learn from new experiences then the Ego is never given new orders. What the human Child experiences is the basis of the inner Child’s fear or confidence, If the human child is belittled or worse, beaten, or if it’s spoiled beyond repair, the Inner Child will devise masks as a response. It could be to hide or act invisible or it could be to attack first before damage can come to it or it could put on an air of superiority repelling any suggestion to the contrary. The Ego creates characterizations to deal with the world that the Inner Child says is out there. The need to talk continuously, the need to not express itself, the need be the center of attention and the life of the party, the need to be excessively reclusive; all reflect a defense against pain to the Inner Child.

Masks tried and true to the purpose of survival are fashioned based on childhood experiences. This can be overcome by nurturing the inner child and allowing it to grow and learn the wider world. The inner Child can tell the ego to let in new experiences, let someone else talk for a change. Make new masks. Sadly we all still need masks. The Self is too intense to be just hung out for all so see in public. But the masks need not be so fierce or so bland, they can be a little more transparent as courage and confidence is instilled in the inner Child.

How to strengthen the Inner Child? The Ego (that which your normally think of as your self) needs to spend time with her. Play, spend time taking hikes, encourage interaction with as many different situations as possible. They should do this together so they both can out grow child hood experiences and the Ego is not burdened with outer world defenses and can work on being, as much as possible, the outer mask of the Higher Self.

We are born into a society that may or may not accept the perfection that is that particular Self. We have have hormones and pheromones used in the operation of the physical body that exert influence over its mental and emotional state. Being your True Self is not an easy task. And why else are we here but to bring our beauty into this narrow band of frequencies called the physical world. Finding and being our True Selves is an art form sadly forgotten. You can’t be your Self until you know your self. Peal away the layer that was your parents, your peers, your social rank and ‘responsibilities’, the constant manipulation accosting you from television, movies and radio. What is left? You start to see yourself for what you really are. It’s scary because we all feel like we will find something worthless. But it never is. There is a recognition of purpose and peace that can be found no other way.

Find the way that best suits you to turn off the constant chattering of the mind. The mind is a loyal dog to the Ego and will convince you of anything the Ego wants to believe. Shut that down long enough to feel the Self come through. Take note of the Shadow and recognize it for what it is. Get help from other aspects of the subconscious to absorb this Shadow to gain it’s strength and subdue it’s maliciousness. Keep and eye on the Trickster. When he starts acting up figure out why. He’s trying to tell you something. And check the mirror regularly. Is it really you or some image you think you should be? Gain strength from the Hero and wisdom from the Sage. Rest in the nourishment of the Mother and drink in the encouragement from the Father. The Child will reevaluate the role of the Ego. He won’t need to pretend to be King of the World or Scum of the Earth. He can become the outward face of an inward perfection. This doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone will love you, society also needs to find it’s True Self and I don’t see that happening anytime soon. But the Ego can slowly become the cautious greeting to the Higher Self.

i; A + B = C; B + C = D; C + D = E; etc. You can put any two numbers in as A and B, positive, negative, fractions the relationship between two adjacent sums gets closer and closer to Phi, the Golden Mean. You can get to 1.618 in 10 or so steps.

Practical Qabalah Lesson 4 Tree in Yesod 7 – Mirror
The underlying premise for these lessons is that the Original One says ‘I Am’, ‘Who am I?’ and ‘I Am That I Am’; meaning: Consciousness, Reflection, and Expansion. The Expansion creates vibrational reality and a means to interact and create and is ruled by the mathematical relationship of the Golden Mean1. Seeking out the Reflection denotes will and duality and is ruled by the square root of 22. And Consciousness is the foundation of reality as we are able to perceive it and is ruled

Contour grass strips are used on cropland with potential for sheet and rill erosion. Many times, grass buffer strips are used in combination with terraces. The grass buffer strips are typically used below terraces where land slopes are less than 4 to 5 percent. Grass buffers work b

WHAT ARE COVER CROPS?
Written by Fred Wedel, Retired NRCS District Conservationist

What are cover crops? Cover crops are grown for the protection and enrichment of the soil. In Agriculture, cover crops are used to cover and protect the soil rather than to be harvested.

Cover crops are used to manage cropland and reduce soil erosion, improve soil fertility, improve soil quality, improve water storage, reduce pressure from weeds, pests and diseases, and improve biodiversity and wildlife in an agroecosystem.
