I am unfamiliar with the different aspects of Judaism, so if this is the wrong place to ask this I apologize.
I have been trying to study the tree of life according to different sects of Kabbalah. However, none of them seem to go in great detail about the return to the creator pathway. They talk about a lightning bolt configuration coming down the different sephiroth. But I want to know about the return up the tree. Does it follow the same pattern? do you move up the middle column? Do you jump around the different numbered paths? How does one ascend the ladder?
