All creations follow the Tree of Life. Movies, for example, vividly illustrate the inner-workings of the Tree because virtually every film tells the story of the wish-fulfilling journey of its hero. Nerdy boy yearns to love beautiful girl. The Queen wishes to unify England. The FBI agent dreams of cracking the big case without cracking up himself. The Sefer Yitzerah, the oldest Kabalistic text on Earth, states “God created His universe with a story [Sipur],” and so logically every story embodies the process of God’s creation.
By transposing the plot of a movie onto the Tree, we are able to see quite emphatically the nature of the spheres and how they all lead one to another, how they all work together, to create the finished product. To fulfill the hero’s wish. Examining a movie step by step, sphere by sphere, illuminates the bank of symbols native to each energy as well as all the unexpected synchronicities that point the way to the fulfillment of the quest. A harmless glass of water on the table, the number of cookies on a plate, anything could be an arrow pointing the protagonist down the essential path.
Analyzing how the Tree works on the hero of a popular film can help us to recognize in our own lives the similar symbols, plot twists and synchronicities that are sure to pop up as each of us embarks on our own hero’s journey through the Wish-Fulfilling Tree. Tracing the story from Crown to Kingdom will, I hope, aid you in recognizing how to put all these theories into practice.
