IV  The Emperor

(based on Meditations on the Tarot by Anonymous)

Submit freely

and reflect Revelation.

Renounce self-serving opinion,

embrace the supreme Truth.

“The Spirit of God was hovering,

over a formless and empty earth” [1]

the void – God made a space

without his presence.

The Emperor has pure authority…

not with the spoils of the rod,

but with a sparing staff,

he rules a child’s realm.

From a throne of honor,

while listening to the Lion,

and receiving the Raven,

he protects the mystery.

Beyond the common good,

he was born to serve

not to be served…

cultivating the greater good

“Christ rules all that is good

from a perfect holy place

not made with human hands,

and not of creation”[2].

[1] Genesis 1:1-2

[2] Hebrews 9:11

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
