Bi-weekly musings on random esoteric

they apply to almost any deck, this series

PATH #13: Crown to Beauty

The path of The High Priestess is the
journey across the emptiness of The Abyss,
from the #1 (Crown) to the #6 (Beauty),
the longest path on the Tree of Life. This
is the significance of the letter Gimel, the
Hebrew letter associated with this card.
Gimel means “Camel”, and in this context
is the living vehicle that carries the traveler
safely across the uncrossable distance.

Path #13 is the experience of bridging the
distance between the qualities of the Depth
of Good in the Crown and the Depth of East
in Beauty, of the source of creation itself
and the time of dawn.

Coming to know and experience the blending
of Good and Beauty, of the first moment of
existence and the dawn of a new day, is what
happens to anyone who travels this path.

Like all other paths, it already exists as
part of the structure of your consciousness,
just waiting to be discovered.
