An Ancient Book Of Shadows


יְהוָה, אֶרֶךְ אַפַּיִם וְרַב-חֶסֶד, נֹשֵׂא עָו‍ֹן, וָפָשַׁע; וְנַקֵּה, לֹא יְנַקֶּה
The LORD is slow to anger, and plenteous in lovingkindness, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and that will by no means clear the guilty ... Bamidbar 14:18

These midot (measures and character traits) - slowness to anger, lovingkindness and forgiveness of transgression - will not clear, will not clean up, will not acquit guilt.

The question now is, what will human beings do?

The Universe pauses to observe.

The total gematria of the Hebrew excerpt above is 1948, with a digit sum of 22 and a final digit sum of 4.

1948 = the year Israel became a nation
22 = the number of magical letters in the Hebrew alphabet
4 = the door into will

In Torah, an ancient Book of Shadows belonging to Humanity, is recorded an alchemical occult procedure for removing the alien infection of human will. As is every mystery Book of Shadows, the cleansing interpretation of the instructions is protected by encryption of the text. How do we read it and how do we act upon our reading of it?
