12. beth

(the magician)

Beth means 'house'. It directs and encloses spirit flowing out of Kether and moulds it into the great womb of Binah. In pathworking, Beth is the path where the unlimited energy of Kether comes within reach of the formative mind. It is the fundamental vibratory process of the Word, the effect of pronouncing correctly 'IHVH'.

Beth is the essence of spiritual technology, illustrating the point that our world is continuously being created by our attention, intention and focus. It is both that which transmits and that which is transmitted. Everything we see, we create. Be wise of what you are giving your attention to.

Beth is the primary symbol of the Will aspect of God. All created wills are but reflections of this process, and we must allow this primal will to act through ourselves. "Except Adonai builds the house, their labor is but lost that build it".
