The Principle of Collaboration, Teamwork, and Partnership.
forth thy light to all without doubt; the clouds and shadows are no
matter for thee. Make Speech and Silence, Energy and Stillness, twin
forms of they play.
The Tarot- Key 19, The
represents the Solar Life Force that awaits expression within us all. The
Thoth Card displays twins dancing on the green mountain of creation, symbolize the inner
dance of male/Animus (electric) and female/Anima (magnetic) energy that is dancing in
us all. The dancing Hindu gods of Shakti (Goddess) and Shiva (God) that are
the rhythm of Life's heart beat. All the signs of the zodiac that
encompass the Thoth Sun, show that we bring exuberance and consistency to the
dance of two (one on one relationships) as well as to group or
The orange band around the Sun represents the implementing of a shared vision which is the purpose of Teamwork and Partnership.
Creation is a form of play and exploration and it is the Divine Child
within us that is always seeking to express itself in unlimited ways. We
are infinite beings, children of The Divine Creative and can never grow old. We
are the manifested Joy of Creation who has come to dance among creation
as a joyful expression of I AM ME! We are both magnetic and dynamic and
we are a "self experiment" that cannot be made by anyone else . It is
time to remember that if we are good enough for the Divine Creative to create, then we
are good enough for ourselves and any creation!
The Tarot-Key 19: The Sun, is described as the "collecting intelligence" by Dr. Paul Foster Case, the founder of B.O.T.A.,
in his Qabalistic text-32 Paths to Wisdom. Therefore the Sun has
control over the zodiac which is represented by the 12 rays and pictures
of the zodiac on the Thoth card.
The Sun card represents The Lord of Light, Heru-ra-ha
(Horus), in his manifestation to the human race as the Sun, spiritual, moral and physical. The Lord of light is also the Lord of the New Aeon of Horus; Horus
being the proposed self-conscious state of the New 22nd century Human, and is depicted as a Hawk headed god in the Egypt of Thoth.
The Hawk head, depicts the Higher Self; The Energy-Conscious State of Horus is the State of Enlightenment that
is often sought by the adept and neophyte alike. It is the awakening of
the "sleeping" soul who now communicates to the brain. Here the Real Person, the Soul
/Psyche claims its body back from the definitions of Rulers and/or the world of man.
Therefore new Aeon has for it's purpose,
the complete emancipation of the human race from the indoctrination of
intransigent prejudicial thought forced upon them by enforcement of rule
and doctrine-and/or man-made- morality since about 25,000 BCE. We know from
history, that when those who had made the transition from indoctrinated
morality to enlightenment, have been ill received by ruled-society and
persecuted for displaying the Life, Liberty and Love of the "Solar
Hence, The New Aeon, represents a social change from social enslavement to the Life, Liberty and Love of the emancipated Spirit, dancing in its flesh.
Dancing Twins of the Thoth Tarot Sun card
, represent the divine male and
female, eternally young, innocent and shameless. The Fertile Earth
represent as a green mound aspiring to the heavens. The fact that the
new Aeon doesn't mean absence without control (love your neighbor as
yourself--is the control) is shown by the wall surrounding the top of
the Fertile Earth. Yet the Twins dance outside this wall, as they are
dancing in the light, in which complete freedom is both the cause and
effect of the new solar logos energy upon the earth. The ignorant
restrictions of both sin and death in the old indoctrination, have been
abolished by a enlightened knowledge of "create-see error and correct
it", i.e. Wisdom, free from the pathological aspect of blame and knowing that death is merely Life transforming itself. After all, I AM Life, and the body is "alive", meaning it is a simulation of life.
the feet of the Thoth Twins
are the symbols of both the Rose and the
Cross, from which they are arisen and still supported. The Cross is now
expanded into the Sun (The 6th Sephroth-Tiphareth), from which it was
derived, and has expanded beyond the four arms of mundane law (mundane
law is associated with the #4) into the 12 rays of both the zodiac and
the 12 Hua
-Most Ancient-Holy Ones - also known as the Eld or Elders ( Hua
is numerically the #12) who sponsored the Human Race and came from "the Heavens" (Annunaki
in Sumerian or the Nommo of the Dogon).
formula of the Rose and Cross has expanded into the complete union of
terrestrial and celestial communion in human kind which is shown by the
Wall completely encircling the top of the mound. Because of this
communion of Solar Creative Fire and Terrestrial intelligent-matter, the
Spiritual Fire has changed into something "rich and strange", producing
"living gods" as the "inner Sun", which is the light of the Soul- personality
rises just as the physical Sun does in the material world. This is most
profound, as the Inner Solar Being,(the Inner Master/Christos/Buddha)
is now consciously in operation of the physical body as both Master and
Masterpiece in energy conscious union. Of course, this Master and Masterpiece communication can't happen until the self-conscious, becomes Mercury, the messanger of the gods, and/or the Magus. With a Magus personality, one's self-conscious "flies" between the worlds of man and spirit, with winged feet; winged feet imply, not bound to the earth.
The Hebrew letter Resh- is Rivka , the English translation is Rebecca and supports a story of it's own.
And when the time came for
[Rebecca] to give birth, behold! There were twins in her womb. The first
one emerged red, entirely like a hairy mantle, so they named him Esau.
After that his brother emerged with his hand grasping on to the heel of
so he called his name Jacob...The lads grew up and Esau became one who
knows hunting, a man of the field but Jacob was a wholesome man, abiding
in tents. Isaac loved Esau for he ate of his venison, but Rebecca loved
The Great Matriarch Rebecca and her twin sons,
is a story of contrasting elements in all of us----we are Spirit
(Issac) and we are of Genetically Modified Animal forms (Esau). There is
a clash among these two, these twins, Mothered by "The Womb-With-
A-View" (Great Mother Binah). In the Form of Mother Earth---Esau (animal
Personality) and the Mother of Intellectual form
(Conscious/Unconscious). Esau is in essence, the "Survival Mind" of the
animal and Issac is the "inner-Sun"--enlightenment of Soul. This may
look like a form of competition ----each one competing for His First
Born rights--but it is a 'communion'where each one is joined at birth
to "expand and liberate" both body and Soul.
If you read on in the book
you will see that Isaac (the father of the twins) love Esau
and was to give him the first born blessing while Rebecca loved Jacob
and set up an elaborate scheme to get the first born blessing for Jacob.
battle between the animal-subconscious and our solar-conscious, is well
known in us all---where the animal instinctively sees threats (enemies) and is poised for attack,
the Solar mind sees "another as myself" and acts with compassion. We all
feel that struggle in our "heads" and " hearts" believing that somehow
they are separates and in conflict. The Body is Loved into Being, and
the Soul is Love of Being-----Love is the joining factor here! Knowing
that the Qaballah is about "the motion and form"; of Supreme Being called Adam Kadmon and
how the Union of seemingly opposites makes the "flow" from motion into
The Hebrew Story-Letter Resh
shows us a deeper understanding of ourselves. Soul is the Beloved;
Physical Body is the loved. Therefore, the greatest mistake of many
fundamentalists is to believe that the body is somehow bad and of less
value than the Soul. The Sun Card -Resh- is the "Collective
Intelligence", meaning that It has control over a number of components.
In this case, the 12 (12-Rays) signs of the Zodiac. These signs are the
12 guideposts of Personality and the "Wombs"(receptacles) of Planetary
Influences, one of which governs the birth and life motion of each
incarnation of the Soul-Persona (the Soul is a persona of Spirit) and body personality! The Sun is the central link (Tiphareth) to the
incarnation at hand and to all the Personalities that have been
experienced in past incarnations.
The Collective Intelligence of the Sun
also unites all the component parts of the Personality, discovered on
the lower paths of the Tree of Life, and infuses them with the dual
action of the Sun,i.e. light, brilliance and warmth, which are
considered intellectual qualities! The path of the Sun is the highest
level of human intellect (light, brightness and warmth=enlightenment).
Resh means head
which is consistent with this thought of high human intellect. This
high intellect is a combination of animal intellect and Soul
intellect---not as some would have you believe--a divorcing of the two!
The Sun basically is the Intellect acting on the dualities of the human
condition, consciousness and its human vehicle (power tool). This is
the point of connection of the human intellect with the higher intellect
of solar conscious [The Greater Life]. The Sun is also "the Son" who
carries on the work of the Father (Chokmah) which is Force/motion and the Body
is Form of the Mother (Binah).
As adepts of the Qaballah, we know we are the Union of Hermes-Aphrodite (hermaphrodites)
who give birth to Solar-Body unions .... of course you'll have to do
more studying to see this easily. These two Children of the Divine
Androgyny, motion (solar) and form (matter) are both loved and their
Greatest Value is in their Union of Equilibrium (Beauty). These children
are represented as the dancing twins who move hand in hand
throughout creation (motion and form). Be as the Children---is
enlightenment. Let your Spirit supply the motion of your Form; Love
must power and/or be the motion in the body, who is the Soul's power tool!
The Wild Wood Tarot-Key 19- The Sun of Life, also depicts the lesson of Resh
requires the knowledge of Love and the Love of Being---to be the inner twins of
expanding and liberating life! Knowledge is not "thought", it is KNOWN.
Hence, this Love must come from the "Heart"--known but not thought of,
while the intellect of the body--the Head--must move as love (thought
action), rather than as animal reaction! In other words Knowledge of
Union, rather than the survival thoughts of division! Represented on the Wild Wood Tarot is, Adam Khadmon, the "Supreme Being" that is as The Sun and Radiates
all Life Motion. This Solar Mind knows that "All that I see is another way to be me"
This is the Knowledge of the heart, ask any child who hasn't been
indoctrinated in "good-bad" (enemy creation), they are in union with all
around them and with bright eyes of Wonder look at all things; Eyes that aren't
veiled by fear which is indeed "thoughts that be-devil us"! Trusting
the Spirit that made you. Knowing that you have no enemies for even
death exists for the sustainability of organic matter and Soul evolution. A sustainability,
that as a Spirit Personality you know that you can always have another way to be a
discerning self conscious, as bodies are transforming from organic matter every second.
Survival-Thought is the Devil
that deceives us as bedeviling thought, always "nagging"; always chipping away at our confidence.
Knowledge is our Divine Inheritance and is known as
"intuition" which is the thoughtlessness of knowing. Creator has joined
with creation in order to be a sensual God---i.e. intimate with creation. A tough idea to get, but once gotten-never forgotten!
Resh is the first active path
on the formulation-
intellectual side and is the activating force of the Personality. The
Supreme Spirit Self, the Higher Self and the Personality are all
composed of an intertwining of the Feminine side and a Masculine side
(the twin serpents on the Caduceus) and forces resulting from the
interaction of opposites. The Sun-Resh is also known in the Hermetic
Qabalah, as the "Collective Intelligence"
meaning that it
exercise control over the Zodiac as shown by the 12 rays on the Thoth
Deck Tarot Card-The Sun-Key 19. Astrologers know these zodiacal signs
as the twelve guideposts of Personality and as receptacles (feminine)
of Planetary Influence. The Sun is not only a link to the present
incarnation but also a link to the past personality incarnations. Being
collective, the Sun is also infuses all the components parts of the
Personality on the lower paths with the actions of the Sun, light and
warmth which are considered intellectual qualities.
You may notice the "Dancing Twins"
as show on the Thoth card, before they were called the "Sons of Seth"
or the "Daughters of Seth", we may have known them as --the Twin aspects
of the Goddess-Anima or God-Animus. The Fiery Spirit or Spiral Energy of Masculine
and the Magnetic =Formative Sophia (Goddess of Wisdom) feminine side. On the Thoth Card,
Their arms cross to represent the Union of these Divine States of
Intellect and Energy (in Tantric Image they would be in "Sexual Union")
that must be established to "Collect"
all the necessary Forces in order to establish a Intellectual and living Being.
The Path of Resh, Key 19- The Sun or The Sun of Life, is intellectual,
and THE SUN represents the highest form of human intellect (The Real
Person) which is both a balance of Masculine and Feminine conscious
energy. So in a physical representation, when both the Left and Right
side of the brain are in equilibrium with the Solar Forces (Kundalini)
within the body, we are at our most advanced state of Personality. This
is a profound union of the Personality with the Inner Sun
where there is
a deep physical inner feeling of Warmth and Light not unlike the
external feeling of warmth and light a sun bather may experience. Also,
like the physical sun, you cannot look directly into the "inner sun"
with out suffering "damage", for it will burn away the illusion of "outter" sight. Reminding
us of the opposites of the Sun, that it is both the harbinger of
fertility and barrenness which is the Double Letter meaning of the
Hebrew letter- Resh.
As a symbol of Resh
the human head is represented, which is our Collective Intelligence.
The Path of Resh is an initiation of the Personality to the Great Source
of Inner Light which takes place in the material body that affects the
dual components of the Lower Self (Chemical and Intellectual). The Adept
knows that the component parts of the Personality (Lower Paths on the
Tree of Life) function through the body as an experience-collecting
vehicle for the Spirit. The human body is an important Crucible for the
Alchemical union of Higher and Lower Self communion. Therefore, the
Physical body is a Sacred Place; our temple, our forge, where ideas are
forged into artistic-intimate-sensual-presence and where Male and Female
are not divided into a purely errant "Battle of the Sexes" as proposed
by the "Divide and Conquer" indoctrination of divisionism!
Remember "God creates what God wants!"
This is a Hermaphroditic path, where we return to the innocence of a
child and as we travel upwards this Path of Resh, our Personality grows
younger, innocent and sees with Wonder rather than the critical eyes of
the good and bad Pavlovian domesticated and divided-personality of the
Adult. We begin seeing What God Sees!
Tiphareth is the Central Sun (Son)
of the physical microcosm and connects us to the Dark Sun (limitless
light-Father) of the Macrocosm and the Path of Resh begins us on the
Journey to Central Sun-of God, within. There is much to study about this
card, Cain an Able ( bareness and fertility), the Dragon-faced-Men,
Sons of Seth, Daughters of Seth and the Christ who Didymos Judas Thomas
in the Gnostic Gospels quoted as saying"....I am the honeymoon suite." and much more!
The Wild Wood Tarot- Key 19- The Sun of Life:
connects the Solar Consciousness to the Planetary Unconscious; The Green Man and the Green Woman. The Sun of Life, the Green Man and the Green Woman, are the trinity representing fertility. This card is associated with Fire, the time of Noon, and the gaterway of the Psyche. The importance of our Sun to this world of life, cannot be overstated. Everything represented in the explaination of the Thoth card, is here. The Great Sun behind the Great Image of Adam Khadmon, is all here. We are the simulated Suns, who mate with their simulated Wife, the planets; we are "downsized" stars, who become intimate, through avatars, with all that they make alive by their radient beauty.
It is hard to imagin the raging power of the inner sun, yet, it has imagined you as itself, an Avatar of Enlightend thought, action and intimacy with Creation.
None of us know happiness, until we know that Real Solar Self, which we are the avatars of. The joyous, heat of it; the Brilliance of its Roaring Bliss; the perfect balance of it's violent spinning motion, the Shout of "I WILL BE", that Disturbed the sleep of the Dark, and still echos as our heart beat; the breath of our bodies, and the rythmn of our sex. Man-made, we have never been, nor will ever be. But Maker of Man, I AM.
