Above the door to the ancient Mystery Schools is inscribed the Greek phrase “Gnothi Seauton” – a phrase which means “Know Thyself”. It is a fitting first lesson to any visitors or students, since without knowing ourselves and understanding ourselves, we can’t achieve anything truly healthy and beneficial in our lives – it is as if our foundation is flawed.
As an example, take the man who feels that he needs more money to be happy. He does not know himself, and does not realise that the need for more money is a reflection of a spiritual need, perhaps for acceptance or self-love, and therefore no amount of money will ever be enough. No matter how much he earns, he will never be happy.
This is the real importance of knowing thyself, understanding who you truly are and loving yourself. If we know who we are, we can work on a foundation of truth, and the things that we build will be healthy and long-lasting, leading to real, lasting happiness.
Universal Kabbalah helps us to know ourselves and others by providing the tools we need to look inward, finding the parts of ourselves that we want to work on, and improving them in a healthy, long-lasting way. With training and guidance in Universal Kabbalah, our perspective and perception improve, allowing us to see ourselves as we really are.
Most people “see” themselves as a blend of truth, reflection, how they wish they were, and how others see them. With the perception granted by experience with Universal Kabbalah, you will see yourself as you are – and understand yourself.
How many of us really know what we want from life? Not what we are told we should want, or what we superficially want in the moment, but what we really want out of our time on Earth?
When we understand ourselves, we understand our flaws and strengths, our desires and fears. Understanding who you are is key in accepting yourself, and discerning where true happiness lies. The relationships you build, the decisions you make and the path taken by your life are all influenced by your understanding of yourself: when you know who you are, the truth will guide you.
How Kabbalah Can Help Us Relate to Ourselves
Kabbalah is a tool for understanding – and the teachers and guides at the Modern Mystery School believe that, in this respect, it is one of the most powerful tools ever discovered. Through the practice of Universal Kabbalah, we can develop the skills and techniques needed to fully understand the depths of our own being, to shine a light into the shadows and see what is in there. Often, we are pleasantly surprised by what we find; other times, what we discover is less welcome – but either way, the first step to accepting and working with it is to see what is in there.
The most important relationship any of us will ever have is the relationship we have with ourselves. When we have an honest and open relationship with ourselves – of the kind enabled by Universal Kabbalah – then all other relationships are built on sure foundations.
How Kabbalah Can Help Us Relate to Others
Our understanding of ourselves impacts our understanding of others. Often, people see shadows in others which are just reflections of the darkness in their own hearts. When we have not resolved the issues in our own lives, they naturally colour the relationships we build with others, whether that’s insecurity impacting a business relationship, jealousy in romance or anxiety damaging a friendship.
A healthy person, full of self-acceptance and self-love, will build relationships that come from a place of mutual trust and care, and act as a force for good through everyone they interact with.
Building the Foundations of a Better Life
“Know Thyself” is the foundation on which an entire life can be built – a life based on the truth, on understanding and accepting yourself, and on honesty with yourself and others. When we know ourselves, every step we take is a surer one, every decision is made easier, and the plans we lay for our lives are more reasoned and more likely to see fruition.
Kabbalah is a lens through which we can look at our lives – and our spirits – and, in so doing, see to the heart of who we are and what we need. Through the study of kabbalah, we are given the tools to grow as people, learn about ourselves, and lay the foundations on which a happier, fuller life can be built. When you know yourself, the rest almost takes care of itself!
