30. Thou shalt instruct thy servant in his ways, thou shalt speak often with him.
31. (The scribe looketh upwards and crieth) Amen! Thou hast spoken it, Lord God!

Chiah instructing Neshamah about how to interact with Ruach. Ruach looks up and says, '{****} yeah!"

Quote JAE: Chiah instructing Neshamah about how to interact with Ruach. Ruach looks up and says, '{****} yeah!"
Curious, I always thought the Neshamah was the enticer and the Chiah was a rage monster :twisted:
AL III,17: “Fear not at all; fear neither men nor Fates, nor gods, nor anything. Money fear not, nor laughter of the folk folly, nor any other power in heaven or upon the earth or under the earth. Nu is your refuge as Hadit your light; and I am the strength, force, vigour, of your arms.”

Rage monster?

The pattern we are seeing here is that Chiahis the central stream of going, and by its streaming sets in motion that around which Neshamah formulates (conceives and gestates) manifestation. That is, cosmic sub-consciousness is always amenable to suggestion from cosmic self-consciousness (to coin effective if flawed terms to communicate the point).

For that part of the psyche, part of the training is to make Ruach elements transparent, i.e., non-interfering of that "suggestion" (i.e., of the way Chiah's intent touches the substance of Neshamah and sets in motion conception, gestation, and delivery). A big part of the training in Neshamah is to ensure the automatic, unresisting, unthinking, embracing response to those suggestions.

An archetypical masculine image :wink:

Oh, I see: a Beast. :)

Strip the animal and personality elements out of it, reduce the metaphors to pure functionality, and see how it looks.
