Appendix i & ii ~ Tutti! La dolcezza di fare niente ........... XI°
As Above 2012
XI° is a technicality Formless State then one after the other, and perceiving in each what may be called the Three Characteristics of all existence: sorrow or tendency towards sorrow, change or unreliability, and insubstantiality or lack of self.
It is in essence the beginning and the end. It is the Ain Soph Aur (Ain - Without, Soph - End, Aur - Light). To kabbalists, it symbolizes that point beyond which our comprehension of the origins of Being cannot go.
It is considered to be an infinite nothingness out of which the first 'thing' (thought of in science and the Kabbalah to be energy) expanded to create a Universe of multiple things - Source that all else is eventually manifested from and it is the sum of all the parts contained and eventually manifested in the mundane realm.
The Four Aces reside in Kether which is alluded to with the . Suggesting One.
Each verse has a . With a numerical value starting with Kether and descending further into matter ending Malkuth and I have introduced the observer as standing outside of the matrix. On occasion with the questions he has posed and answered by way of the Tarot and it's path within the Tree of Life.
The only line that does not have a point as a numerical value is that starting ABOVE ending BELOW
One could then say that all the cards of the Tarot are alluded to via the starting point and it's decent - certainly some of the numerous correspondences. Such correspondence can be seen in the most basic of terms within the Kybalion
1. The Principle of Mentalism
The All is mind; the Universe is mental
2. The Principle of Correspondence
As above, so below; as below, so above
3. The Principle of Vibration
Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates
4. The Principle of Polarity
Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled
5. The Principle of Rhythm
Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates
6. The Principle of Cause and Effect
Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law
7. The Principle of Gender
Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes
Tutti! La dolcezza di fare niente
is Italian for:
Everybody The Sweetness of Doing Nothing
Which is what some may consider I doing thus the beauty of returning to Zero 0 as Source and removing oneself from the daily rigour of the irony of every day life accepted as normal to the majority within what is referred to as Western, "Civilisation".
For myself it is personal it is how I view reality via an evolving construct while ones understanding is subjective when the above posts are looked at objectively, i.e. by viewing it as a reality and stepping outside of its construct. As the construct itself contains the Tarot as the medium of meta language all aspects can be seen in their parts and also as part of one thing.
In doing so it allows the observer to formulate not only the specifics of a question but also the potential probability of all questions paths and answers via the tarot as method.
To do so this way I am no longer this self I am viewing the Tarot not as 2 dimensional cards laid on a table but as multidimensional vista of energies.
