The Hebrew Letters of Tarot: Vau-Key 5-The Hierophant

Illustrated card from: Ask the Kabala-oracle cards by:Depak Chopra & Michael "Zappy" Zapolin with Alys R. Yablon
 
The letter Vau or Vav,  has the meaning of nail or hook and is the simple letter for hearing. The story that Vau tells is:
When a man or woman who commits any of man's sins, by committing treachery toward God and that person shall become guilty-they shall confess the sin that they committed he shall make restitution for his guilt in its principle amount and add unto it a fifth and give it to the one to home he is indebted.
                                      Numbers 5:6-7
This Jewish concept of atonement and confession  in which a person is dishonest reguarding financial issues---as an affront to both the victim and God and where God requires the sinner to repent, confess and pay back the money he's stolen with interest before forgiveness is given.....seems rather odd in this placement on the Tree of Life ( Vau leads from Chessed to Chokmah and is the uppermost Path on the Pillar of Mercy). But consider this----earthly sins ( survival mind errors) block our perceptions so that we cannot expand and liberation our self conscious to that of our Soul.The fact that the Golden Dawn documents describe this path as, "The Zodiac acting through Taurus upon Jupiter,"  May shed some light on this word Vau. Esoterically, this is the action of Chokmah, as the spermatic potential of the manifest universe, upon the first manifestation.  Chokmah as Chessed(mercy) is the Father in manifestation. Mercy, being the clue here. To walk the Path of Vau, can only be done with a "clean slate" and this requires self-honesty and trusting the mercy of your creator and that is best done by recognizing our short comings and confessing them to our Higher Self. This gets the blocks out of the way ---opening up the "River of Mercy" so that it may flow and revive us as the  First Person of the Macrocosm  (Universal Conscious)  who entered into the Microcosm (Chessed is the Yod of the Microcosm--Yod being the Intelligence of Will).  What may come as a surprise to most of us, is that We ARE Spirit---who makes bodies alive! We have sought "enfleshenment" but in order to do so we have had to "Walk down the Tree of Life' to arrive in the realm of Malkuth (Kingdom), the place of physical manifestation. All for Sensual Reasons! Now we must do the laborious task of "Expanding and Liberating" the "earthly consciousness" of the microcosm by remembering our Macro cosmic Conscious-Self, WHILE STILL MAKING A MANIFESTATION OF FLESH "ALIVE"! In other words, Spiritual Conscious Self Awareness being Sensually Aware of It-Self!  Tough job, when you remember that the "animal mind" is a survival mind---all based on good and bad ("what doesn't hurt and what does hurt") right and wrong ( "what will get me punished and what won't get me punished").  To walk back up through the various conscious states of our Energy Conscious Flow, we must divorce ourselves, piecemeal, from the Survival thinking processes that limit the perspectives (sight, hearing, speaking, touching etc,) of the physical self conscious. To expand perspectives is to "open the mind" and we need to banish our guilt for "preying on each other" in order to avoid pain. Fear of discomfort is the "Kingdom" from which we direct our physical lives.....and emotional discomfort is pain. To confront our "fear of pain" , to reach atonement ( at-one-ment)  is to face our errors and  " to correct them in the Mercy of God" .  The Path of Vau---The Hierophant is the Pontifes, the "bridge-maker" who provides a connecting link between outer experience and interior illumination---i.e. enlightenment.  We combine the self-conscious of  "enfleshenment" with the Self Conscious of Enlightenment by nailing them together on this Path of Atonement/confession. Our Soul needs to shed the illusion of survival thinking, so that it can claim its Immortal Inheritance.....all this while still keeping a body! Here We not only unite the "As above and so Below", symbolized by the Pentagram, which is also the symbol for the "Ascended Man"----i.e. the fleshy conscious united with the"light" conscious as a complete SELF-Conscious!.....  Not so easy as it sounds, and a lot of self examination is required....and that is one reason we "walk up" the Paths of the Tree of Life, one step at a time----In order to remember ourselves as the "First Matter Manifestation"  (The Sperm of God Impregnated the Egg of Binah----and we are the "The Child of Goddess/God---The Horus--The living Suns )  . A lot to think about here, so do your research, meditations and be diligent in "seeing your error,\and correcting that error" for only then can we become "Wisdom". We expand and liberate self-by releasing confining perspectives and we can do this to the point of "Greater Self".For more information about the Tarot, a personal reading, or just to comment, call Eli @ 253-241-0129 or email- info@eli-lsmerchantile.com .
