1. kether

(the crown)

Every Sephirah is a gate, and Kether is the gate between the Unmanifest and the world being accessible to human consciousness.

It is the qabalah's concept of a divine starting point. The birth of a new sequence, a new world. Or new energy pouring into the world we know, providing it with new life.

In this proces, the four elements are born, represented by the angels of Kether, the Holy Living Creatures (the four Seraphim): Bull, lion, eagle and man.

Therefore, Kether is the richest and most supreme source of energy for any qabalistic operation. It is the point where we can truly experience that God is actively creating our universe.

Regarded as a level of consciousness, Kether represents union with God, the Completion of the Great Work, the end and aim of any mystical experience.
