We Are the Other People Oberon (Otter) Zell The following is an Article published three or four years ago in Green Egg. "Ding-dong!" goes the doorbell. Is it Avon calling? With the stage set and all the actors in place, the show is ready to begin. "Hunh? Right," I say. Now clearly, here we are talking about the original creation of the human species: male and female. The next chapter talks about how Yahweh, an individual member of the Pantheon, goes about assembling his own special little botanical and zoological Garden in Eden, and making his own little man to inhabit it: (Gen 2:7) Yahweh God fashioned a man of dust from the soil. Then Yahweh decides to make a woman to go with the man. Now this next part is where it starts to get interesting. (Gen. 3:6) The woman saw that the tree was good to eat and pleasing to the eye, and that it was desirable for the knowledge that it could give. And so the sign of the Fall becomes modesty. And now we come to the crux of the Fall. Get that? So that's it for the Fall.

Simply put, "Path-working" is the art of clairvoyantly investigating the Paths of the Tree of Life. Another technique, making use of this faculty[5], was described in a paper recording a lecture by Frater Sub Spe.[6] The idea was to re-read the rituals, and then endeavour to re-tread the Paths astrally. However, one should not imagine that when, nowadays, different people in the Western Mystery Tradition refer to Path-working they mean exactly the same thing. Nevertheless, we can express some generalities about all forms of Path-working: they all concern learning from astrally experiencing the Paths of the Tree of Life; and they almost always feature the Tarot Trumps heavily. and Path-working and the Active Imagination

Introduction to Tarot Cards Tarot Class by Michele Introduction to the Tarot The course will be generic in nature and will not be keyed to any specific deck.
