ARCANUM XI [Letter Caitha (C, K)--Number 20]

THE TAMED LION: Strength

    C, K-20 expresses in the divine world the Principle of all strength, spiritual or material: in the intellectual world organic force: in the physical world organic Force.

     Arcanum XI is represented by the image of a young girl who with her bare hands is closing, without effort, the jaws of a lion. It is the emblem of that strength which is communicated by faith in oneself and by innocence of life.

    Remember, son of Earth, that deeds necessitate faith in your ability to accomplish them. Proceed with faith: all obstacles are phantoms. In order to become strong, silence must be imposed on the weaknesses of the heart; your duty must be studied, for it is the rule of righteousness. Practise justice as if you loved it.
