Yetziratic text

The Ninth Path is named The Pure Consciousness. (Sekhel Tahor) It is called this because it purifies the Sefirot. It tests the decree of their structure and the inner essence of their unity, making it glow. They are then unified without any cutoff or separation.

Description

As one of the Sephiroth on the middle pillar, Yesod receives and balances the influences of those on the side pillars connected to it. Symbolized by the moon, Yesod is the principle of rhythm and fluctuation. The cosmos is ruled by rhythm, whether embodied in electromagnetic waves or in the circling planets. Yesod is the Foundation of manifest reality, lying just 'behind' the visible appearances in Malkuth.

In the human being, Yesod is found in all rhythmic systems, but especially in the hormones and in the sexual organs as they pertain to the cycles of life. The autonomic nervous system is also ruled by Yesod, insofar as it is responsible for controlling many of the rhythmic processes in the body.
