NUN, (N, value = 50; as a final letter 700) is pronounced “noon”.  As a noun it means ’fish’. As a verb, because fish are unusually prolific, it means “to sprout, to grow”.

Motion is the function attributed by Qabalists to Nun. All motion is change,transformation, modification, variation. And all changes are primarily changes in mental imagery. Change the image, and ultimately the external form will change.

  The forces of change which result in physical death are inimical only because we misunderstand and fear them. They are forces connected with reproduction, and by right use of imagination they may be tamed and transformed, so that they can be utilized for indefinite prolongation of physical existence. Death, like every other event in human life, is a manifestation of law. When we understand the law, we can direct the forces of change so as to overcome death. Yet understanding never will be ours until fear, not only of dying, but of death itself, has been overcome by right knowledge, and by right interpretation of the phenomena of physical dissolution.

It is by death that social changes for the better come to pass. Old ideas pass away with the death of the persons who hold them. New ideas gain currency as the generation comes to maturity. Thus the actual fact of death is an instrument of progress.

Every few years, you have a new body, made up of trillions of tiny beings or cells.  Change your intellectual patterns, and with the passing away of the present generation of cells, new ones will come to take their places. In the mental nucleus of each tiny cell, implanted there by subconscious response to your new patterns, will be an impulse to realize the new thought in body-structure, in function, and in external action.

If your pattern be built in accordance with the ideas developed through the Tarot series and culminating in the self-surrender pictured by the Hanged Man, it will lead to a complete transformation of your personality.

Thus, little by little, there comes a complete readjustment of one’s personal conceptions of life and its values.  This change from the personal to the universal viewpoint is so radical that mystics often compare it to death. It is by the death and reproduction of  body-cells that patterns created by imagination are finally fixed in personal consciousness. Then it is that we may truly declare, “The Kingdom of Spirit is embodied in my flesh.”

The source of the Qabalistic quote from March, 2014  is : The Mystical Qabalah,  by Dion Fortune, -  Pg. 5, Par. 11


                    QABALISTIC  QUOTE  FOR  APRIL  2014

Every one of the circles on the Tree of Life has many occult meanings; so has every one of the connecting paths. The meaning of the circles are all developed from the abstract ideas of number. The meanings of the connecting paths are related to the occult significance of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet.

… Every path on the Tree of Life corresponds to some particular mode of human consciousness…. These descriptions are of vital importance, because they refer to mental states that are present in the life of every human being. Sometimes they are latent, sometimes active, but they are always part of the makeup of every man and woman.

The source of this quote can be found at the end of the B.O.T.A. meetup entry for May,  2014.
