TOHU

Confusion; chaos. Confusion and chaos are ignorant interpretations of what one sees when one approaches the void state of mind. In one account of creation, God fashioned the Universe out of our own perceptual abilities, the faculties that delineate, define, discriminate, and judge. These go on pretty much unconsciously, supported by the power of the Kerubim that keep us out of the Garden. When we consciously decide to take control of our own perceptual powers, than gradually the Kerubim loosen their grip on us and allow us to create our own universes. To our eyes, they become our humble servants instead of oppressive externally imposed conditions. On the way to this state of mind, that of the magician, the old habits die hard and we tend to feel like all is chaos, when in fact it is our perceptual abilities that are undergoing transformation.
