Paths and Attributions - Temperance

"God (Elohim) blessed them, be fruitful and multiply"GEN 1:22
"blessed them" this needs no other expounding other than that he blessed THEM. This is subtle, saying that if Elohim blessed his creation how is it possible they are cursed, this would infer that human will is stronger than divine blessing which is absurd. Therefore there can't be an original sin!
"be fruitful" means due to this blessing your able to do good. Swedenborg in his Arcana Colestia
"and multiply". This is beautiful and may be called the amplification of blessing.
Eucharist is the eucharistia or "returning grace" of the "blessing" in the sacrament of the "Rite of Sacrifice". this path is literally saying "Elohim (sygyzy) gave them blessing , this is significant, be fruitful to do good and return it by amplifying it on earth and "multiplying".

The significance of this path is the letter NUN.
( previously the posts under this letter were derived from the golden dawn attributions. though that works for contemplation it does not correspond to the 3rd level alchemical work and differs greatly from original Kabbalistic attributions. see Dr Keizer's essay on tarot in the links section)I am somewhat upset from the attributions given by the golden dawn. Mathers and Waite intentionally changed the attributions to work with the ritual and degree structure of the GD. This is what in philosophy would be called a "simulacrum" which would inevitably mean that we will "simulate" a spiritual process.

As Grailmaster LK says " the golden dawn system was entirely MENTAL". I asked him how credible this was and on multiple times told me that "most of their work was a hallucination". This is the kind of work that i hope to avoid on this site.

As previously mentioned the level of tarot interpretation falls into 3 broad categories.
1. the practical application of the cards to events within the personality and upon the physical plane.
2. the seed thoughts and doctrines that are incorporated within the system of the tarot
3. the tarot as symbol and map of alchemical work and pathworking in order to incorporate those doctrines in a theurgical way.Above all its important to "Temper" ourselves with wisdom and remember that just because someone says something is "thus and so" it doesn't make it true. It is theory and considered important to reflect upon. Like the Great Teacher of the Grailmaster said upon his Ordination as Bishop , "you must not let anyone put you under their thumb". Therefore please take this blog as a tool to offer SYNCRETIC information that is not easily obtained but could be flawed.

Initiation from Alice Bailey is " ..the process of undergoing an expansion of consciousness" and the author is constantly doing just that.
Please "Know for Thyself".

Is this my "Solar Angel"?

Greetings! Its been a while since writing about this key. That's because Alchemy takes a while. No real working system ever was expounded all at once and newer and grander revelations are constantly being given.

For instance as we work upon the 14th Key of Tarot titled Temperance we are confronted with a angel. This angel is obviously a "solar angel" why because its evident that the figure on the picture has intentions to bring sun, the rays from the sun on the mountain, the sun on the forehead the solar triangle on the chest. This is all the work of a "solar angel".

Here is a key: The sun in the chakra system in in the center of the solar plexus , why here is it in the heart? give up? Because this key represents the result of a connection with ones "angel" or the process of Reintegration. The sun has illumined the heart and the heart has risen to the mind which means that now the structure is that of a "perfect" one. how do we know this? Look at the key carefully and "see" what is being told.

The Sun in the Head center is blazing and creating a head aura, in the Initiatic Science of Gnosis the ring would be called the "Stephanos" or Crown. This is the point where the energy of the central channel is transferred to the pineal glands to "awaken" the crown chakra.

So it is evident that this key can't be given any ordinary description, what person alive that is engrossed in materialistic thinking can fathom a "solar angel" or powers other than that of the "animal soul" of eating, reproduction and seeking the self-perpetuation of its life at the expense of all else.

This is what Yeshua says when he says "what does it profit a man to gain the world but lose his soul" My teacher says that "of all gods creation, only a human being is given a divine soul" this is why the "solar angel" will assist us in the process of reintegration because "in us THEY live move and have their being".

As we continue this process of awakening and Initiation , lets remember to always have a chalice available for our "solar angel" to fill full of "noetic fire".

Please study the terms put in "quotes".

In light and love
