The Law of One, Book IV, Session 79
Questioner: Would the Hierophant then be somewhat of a governor or sorter of these effects so as to create the proper assimilation by the unconscious of that which comes through the conscious?
Ra: I am Ra. Although thoughtful, the supposition is incorrect in its heart.
Questioner: What would be the Hierophant?
Ra: I am Ra. The Hierophant is the Significator of the Body [Mind2] complex, its very nature.
We may note that the characteristics of which you speak do have bearing upon the Significator of the Mind complex but are not the heart.
The heart of the mind complex is that dynamic entity which absorbs, seeks, and attempts to learn.
2 Ra corrected this error in Session #80.
The Hierophant is the Significator of the Mind.
Questioner: Then is the Hierophant that link, you might say, between the mind and the body?
Ra: I am Ra. There is a strong relationship between the significators of the mind, the body, and the spirit.
Your statement is too broad.
Questioner: Let me skip over the Hierophant for a minute because I am really not understanding that at all and just ask if the Lovers represent a merging of the conscious and the unconscious or the communication of the conscious and unconscious?
Ra: I am Ra. Again, without being at all unperceptive, you miss the heart of this particular archetype which may be more properly called the Transformation of the Mind.
Questioner: Transformation of the mind into what?
Ra: I am Ra. As you observe Archetype Six you may see the student of the mysteries being transformed by the need to choose betwixt the light and the dark in mind.
Questioner: Would the Conqueror or Chariot then represent the culmination of the action of the first six archetypes into a conquering of the mental processes, even possibly removing the veil?
Ra: I am Ra. This is most perceptive.
The Archetype Seven is one difficult to enunciate.
We may call it the Path, the Way, or the Great Way of the Mind.
Its foundation is a reflection and substantial summary of Archetypes One through Six.
One may also see the Way of the Mind
as showing the kingdom or fruits of appropriate travel through the mind in that the mind continues to move as majestically through the material it conceives of as a chariot drawn by royal lions or steeds.
At this time we would suggest one more full query for this instrument is experiencing some distortions towards pain.
Questioner: Then I will just ask about the one of the archetypes which I am the least able to understand at this point if I can use that word at all.
I am still very much in the dark, so to speak, in respect to the Hierophant and precisely what it is.
Could you give me some other indication of what that is?
Ra: I am Ra. You have been most interested in the Significator which must needs become complex.
is the original archetype of mind which has been made complex through the subtile movements of the conscious and unconscious.
The complexities of mind were evolved rather than the simple melding of experience from Potentiator to Matrix.
The mind itself became an actor possessed of free will and, more especially, will.
As the Significator of the mind, the Hierophant has the will to know, but what shall it do with its knowledge, and for what reasons does it seek?
The potentials of a complex significator are manifold.
Are there any brief queries at this working?
