Cheth is the path of destiny between Binah,
the formative potency of the universe, and Geburah,
the enforcer of cosmic law. Through the Pillar of Severity, Binah's understanding of spiritual purpose
is manifested as will in Geburah.
Cheth means fence
or enclosure, the container or 'house
of influence' in which spiritual essence is received. Geburah
teaches that our true and strongest will is the will of God,
and Cheth is the
process of receiving
it from Binah. Complete receptivity
is the secret of the most powerful manifestations of will. Cheth
is the path of the heroic
warrior whose sword is
guided by destiny, not blood-thirst.
In the vision of
Ezekiel, the container is described in terms of the four
kerubim or living creatures - man, ox, lion and eagle - the elemental energies of the manifest universe, each with
a wheel and a throne beside them. Together they form the Merkabah, the Chariot
which carries the throne
of God (see tarot trump below), and which contains and protects
spirit in its movement through the planes. When we open ourselves
to become warriors of divine will, we are protected and guided
