Lets start with a poem about Tipharet:
The Road to the
A Record of Self Initiation to Tipheret
by Bill Heidrick
How fair and how pleasant art
o love, for delights!
This thy stature is like to a palm tree,
And thy breasts to clusters of grapes.
I said: 'I will climb up into the palm tree,
I will take hold of the branches thereof;
And let thy breasts be as clusters of the vine,
And the smell of thy countenance like apples;
And the roof of thy mouth like the best wine,
That glideth down smoothly for my beloved,
Moving gently the lips of those that are asleep."
from "The Song of Songs, Which is Solomon's" 7: 7-10
Tipharet is The Golden Mean
Is the center of the Tree. It is the point, where the
personality, moving up, first ventures into the realm of the soul.
It is where spirit, descending, first splits off and becomes physical. it is where the mundane world meets the spiritual. Brings harmony and compassion to the world.
Tipharet is the Golden Mean, the point of balance. It connects macro to micro, through the Golden Spiral.
Potentials of Tipharet: Development of beauty, harmony, balance; centred consciousness, bringing soul into the life.
