The Tenth and Final Sefira on the Tree of Life is Malkut (“Kingdom”), located at the very bottom and Center of the Tree of Life. Malkut is not just the Planet Earth, which is the traditional Idea, but also the Material World, in every sense of the Word, and so very much more. The “Tenth Path” of the “Thirty-Two Paths of Wisdom” reads as follows:
The Tenth Path is the Magnificent Intelligence (Sekhel MitNotzetz ץצונתמ לכש), It Shall elevate Itself and sit on the Throne Of Understanding. It shines with the Radiance of all the Luminaries, and causes a supply of Abundance to emanate from the Macroprosopus.
“Understanding” is, of course, Binah, the Third Sefira, and the “Macroprosopus” is Keter. Note that the language of this passage is written as if a Prophecy. This relates back to the Shattering of the Vessels. Each of us must return to the Higher State. Another Name for Binah is “Khorsia” (“Throne”). More about this will be covered in a later article. Remember, we are never truly separated from the Divine; God is everywhere and within everything, according to both Metaphysics and Kabbalah. Malkut contains the Essence of the entire Tree of Life. The Tenth Path also relates to the beginning of the Second Chapter of Genesis. Following our story, it is Saturday, and God/Elohim is refraining from further Creation.
Now the heavens and the earth were completed and all their host
And Elohim completed on the seventh day His work that He did, and He abstained on the seventh day from all His work that He did.
And Elohim blessed the seventh day and He hallowed it, for thereon He abstained from all His work that Elohim created to do.
“Created”, here, is again [BETH RESH ALEF]. Why did God rest? Perhaps it was simply Time!
The Angels of Malkut are the Ishim (Human-like beings) and the Archangel is Sandalphon, the “Sandal-Wearer”. The God Name is YHVH Melech (God the King). Malkut is also said to be the dwelling-place of the Shekinah.
In Nova Thought the Day is also Saturday, the Planet is Saturn, the Color is Indigo, and the Number is Five relating to the Essence Principle. Thus, it also refers to the Throat Chakra, the Vishuddhi. The Three Essence Runes are Gebo, Algiz, and Mannaz. Gebo is Sacred to Vali the Archer, and Algiz to the (unnamed) Alcis Twins; all three are not only sons of Odin, but also known for very rapid movement. Ehwaz is related to Mimir of the well, who taught Odin.
The Tarot Cards are the Tens, which all have a connotation of completion.
The Ten of Wands, Malkut in Atsilut, indicates facing difficulty in completing a task, perhaps an ordeal of fire. One may have to slow down to face obstacles.
The Ten of Cups, Malkut in Beriah, refers to a Time of long-term happiness. This is the fulfillment of a cycle, perhaps enduring love and Divine Blessing.
The Ten of Swords, Malkut in Yetzirah, correlates with a risk of failure, which may not necessarily be final. The implication is always, that there is a chance of rising again.
The Ten of Disks is Malkut in Assiah, is usually a happy Card. It deals with Abundance and inheritance, although what is inherited may not be what was desired.
A good Affirmation for Malkuth could be:
I can see my Goals coming into full fruition now.
