Lamed is the path
aligning the will of God in Geburah
with the personal individuation in Tiphareth.
Lamed means 'ox goad' but also
'to teach'. The grinding force of Geburah
puts a steady pressure on the soul that it may stick to its spiritual path.
The symbols on the
tarot trump Adjustment (Justice) associates Lamed with the sign
of Libra and the Egyptian goddess of karma, Maat, who weighs the hearts/souls of the dying on the scales of truth against a feather, assisted by Anubis.
In Egyptian mythology, Maat stands for right, truth, law and
Lamed reveals the truth by providing justice,
a tough price
to pay for each deviation
from divine law. The sword of Geburah
enables this "Faithful Intelligence" to ceaselessly direct
and correct our life
from outside so that "spiritual virtues are increased"
(supported by Chesed on the path of
Yod, the direction from within).
Through such continuous karmic adjustment Lamed stimulates the
and honesty of
the incarnating soul in Tiphareth.
