Resh connects Hod's concentrated mind-forms with the amplifying
magnetic images of Yesod. Resh means
'head' and describes the role played by the mind
in our life, the relationship between our thoughts and subconscious. Through Resh the ideal
structures of Hod influence the waveforms of Yesod's
Akashic Fluid. It is the path indicating how to achieve enlightenment
and consciously create
our existence on earth.
The tarot trump The
Sun (below) is associated with Resh, the head. As a great force
for good and evil, Yesod needs the
and direction by higher principles
supplied from the Sun of Tiphareth
through Hod. As
indicated by the solar symbol of the hexagram
both Hod and Yesod
are among the sephiroth which are connected with Tiphareth
directly. Hod's Glory of the light-filled mind
in has a solar impact on Yesod, which is actually created from
Hod through this path.
Resh is the Collecting
Intelligence: The bright ideals and glorious thoughtforms of
Hod are assembled to shine on the programming
of the Astral Light. This may lead to many forms of solar enlightenment: An increased ability to manifest
and success, a child-like
freedom of creation, discovery of new scientific or astrological truths, transformation of the body's emotional
programming or conscious awakening of the Kundalini.
However, if the glory
of Hod does not confer the light of Tiphareth, the path of Resh may cause
us to focus on greedy, materialistic growth forms. A mental arrogance
where principles go first will lead to barrenness because it is based on a denial of life. Strong,
ideals will cause the
yesodic life-waters to boil away. Therefore, Resh will only play
its proper role when representing the true and lasting sun, Tiphareth.
