Planetary Order

The stones on the Salt Lake Temple are arranged in a common occult order, an order described by the cabalistic term "tree of life." The Tree of Life is a system of hierarchical arrangement from "the earth to the heavens," and signifies man's attempt to bridge the gulf which separates him from diety. Often Tarot cards will be arranged according to the Tree of Life pattern. Meditation on the Tree of Life accompanies the attempt to raise one's "awareness."
