(Hebrew עץ החיים) Although the Hebrew term is plural ("Tree of Lives") it is usually rendered singular.

"And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life [עץ החיים] also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil." - Genesis 2:9

This tree represents the structure of the soul (microcosm) and of the universe (macrocosm).

"The Tree of Life is the spinal medulla. This Tree of Wisdom is also the ten Sephiroth, the twenty-two creative Major Arcana, letters, sounds and numbers, with which the Logos (God) created the Universe." - from Alcione, a lecture by Samael Aun Weor

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"The one who does not know how to fulfill his duties as a simple citizen cannot tread the path of the great mysteries. Many disciples forget the good manners of a sincere and honorable gentleman or lady and become truly irresponsible and even dangerous individuals."

Samael Aun Weor, The Major Mysteries
