The Creative Hand

 Tarot___IX___The_Hermit_by_marianoleonardi[1]

I AM the creative Hand,
Which fashioned the worlds
And established the spheres,
While yet the primal FIRE
Circleth untrammeled in the womb of space.
That fashioning is not as the handiwork of man,
It is my self-utterance through the Voice of Vision.
By it I declare myself.

Yea, I utter myself as the Father of all,
And from my fatherhood
Is the brotherhood of all creatures.

Therefore do the wise see in the letter YOD
The Fatherhood of CHOKMAH
The unbounded Wisdom which estabisheth all.

That Father, AB, am I,
The Source of all;
One in mine inmost being,
Two in my self-utterance,
And Three in my union with my divine manifestation:
Creating,
Preserving,
Transforming,
Throughout endless ages.

Turn Within

Be Independent

All birds, even those of the same species, are not alike, and
it is the same with animals and with human beings. The reason
Wakan Tanka does not make two birds, or animals, or human beings
exactly alike is because each is placed here by Wakan Tanka to
be an independent individuality and to rely upon itself.

Wakan Tanka: (Wakȟáŋ Tȟáŋka) from the Lakota meaning, The Great Mystery or ‘the sacred’ or ‘the divine’
