Daily Tarot Card Brief: THE PATH OF TETH: Key 11- Lust (Strength)

THE PATH OF TETH: Key 19-Lust (Strength):
* Primary color: Yellow-Greenish
* Musical note: E
*Astrological Sign: Leo (fixed fire)
* Word Meaning: Snake
* Simple Letter: Taste
*Esoteric Title:  The Daughter of the Flaming Sword
THIRTY-TWO PATHS OF WISDOM (Paul Foster Case) : The Nineteenth Path is the Intelligence of all the activities and spiritual beings, and is so called because of the affluence diffused by it from the most high blessing and most exalted sublime glory.
Connecting both Geburah (severity) and Chesed (mercy), The Path of Teth, forms the first path of the Microprosopus (The Lesser Countenance of the Universe known as the Microcosm) . This Path is the outpouring of energy from Chesed to Geburah in the process of creation--which is why Crowley named his card Lust-"divine frenzy"- instead of the more common usage of Strength. His most repeated instruction was to ," Inflame Thyself with Prayer" which corresponds to the Alchemist expression of,  "  The heat of the furnace makes the Stone."(Philosopher's Stone).  Here Great Passion  is a heat acquired and confined by the initiate  during an exercise such as that of the Middle Pillar.  This is not for the "fearful of effort" as Paul Foster Case stated often and repeatedly," By prolonged practice...pursued something for months and years without apparent result, those who follow the Way of Liberation (to expand and liberate) effect changes in their subconsciousness. these changes are symbolized by Key 8 and produce at the same time the result shown in Key 16."The student must understand that the whole point of meditational exercises is an actual and subtle change in the structure of the body cells. Dion Fortune (Mystical Qaballah) called the Qaballah,"Yoga of the West"---Yoga being "communion". Indeed, I had to go through years of effort in exercises (Tantra and Qaballah) and meditation to be able to "Stand On The Path of Teth" immersed in the" divine frenzy" to teach the Great Passion "To Be", to my students. The Energy flow is Tireless, and I also become that in its expression, but only after a constant "dipping" in and out of that Fiery Passion, sometimes to points of  my own frenzy. The Path of Teth (Strength) leads  to the edge of the Abyss---the Source of All- The Ultimate Simplicity-the paradox is that the near we are to the ONE- the more complex becomes the Symbolism for words cannot convey the Knowledge----only flow of the "Fiery Sun" can! Thus Leo is the symbol of the "Sun Lion" and it is the lion which is permitted to open the Sacred Scroll of the Apocalypse. In other words, the Solar Power, represented by this Key, can open higher levels of consciousness beyond the Sun (Tipahreth) itself. The symbolism of this is often the image of  Sun God Mithras, whose body is human, but whose head is that of a lion, showing a brute force ("divine frenzy") which may be used constructively or destructively. This Path is the Forge of Geburah's Sword and indicates that the invoking philosopher  may be overwhelmed by this power  and like the story of Daniel in the Lion's den, he must hold back the destructive power of the Lion through force of will................a will that strong takes time to develop and is not an over-night sensation...it takes time- often a lot of it. I have students protesting this, yet they haven't even developed the will to stop being a "want-to-be" as their personality's reality yet. You must be an undaunted "I AM" to wield the Will of one who Controls the Lion! But the fact that their Personality is fighting to hold onto its delusional  past---shows that it sees the Real Sun before it! Now they must willfully proceed, by overcoming the inner trickster who tries to waylay them. ....Meditation on The Cards aids in  this! In Alchemy, the symbol of the lion has three forms. 1-The Green Lion, the energy of nature before it is purified and subjected to the will. 2- The Red Lion, the force of nature under perfect control (The controlled energy flow developed by Tantra Yoga) which is the Alchemical Sulphur (solar energy) combined with Mercury (will). 3-  the Old Lion, the completely purified consciousness, linking the Soul with the Higher Spiritual Self which is "older than time itself."
Because of the inexplicable knowledge of this Path, words tend to develop contusion, as often the symbolic Lion -Sun, is at one level the Kerub of Fire, symbol of the Four elements,but this is not the same flow as the lion of the Sun's Spiritual Fire, or Kundalini, which is also a Serpent (Serpentine flow). The fiery Lion -Serpent is on aspect of the Life Force, which in manifestation, is a duality of activity and passivity. Kundalini, the Sacred Fire. is the active phase, purposely unleashed and directed by the Will.  This "divine frenzy" represents a very important initiatory formula dealing with the Serpent Power (shown on the Lust Card as the Haloed Serpent Tail) which is used to stimulate the various centers of energy in the body (Chakras). There are seven Chakras which are activated by the Lion-Serpent Power. this taming of the Lion by the "Womb-man" in the Lust Card,  means that to bring the energies symbolized by the Lion under perfect control , is to open the seven- seals (Chakras) on the Book of Reality above the Abyss. Where one may know "The Above" (Supernal Triangle of the Tree of Life)--from which all manifestation emerges. this is an important Path of transition---a gateway to Daath (knowledge). There is so much more that can be said about this Path and a study of the Lust card requires meditation and exercise (I recommend Tantrik work).. Due to restraints,  I must log off this blog. Call me at 253-241-0129 or email-info@eli-lsmerchantile.com for more information/reference  material etc. and/or private Tarot card readings. May you live long and prosper.
