Is it true that there are "Many Interacting Worlds?" If so, The Emperor rests on a throne only as solid and singular as his thoughts declare it to be.
Do you remember what Lily Tomlin, scripted by her beloved Jane Wagner, said in The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe?
"Reality is nothing but a collective hunch."
Some folks think The Emperor has decided that a particular hunch is fact. Some folks dislike and distrust The Emperor because that hunch--and the rules that form around it--can have repressive and oppressive consequences. That might be true of one type of Emperor. But what about The Emperor on a yogic path?
Perhaps there are many thrones and many Emperors, many realms and many reigns.
Can we imagine The Emperor capturing the energy of these diverse realities as they pass through one another, joining two or more to create something entirely unanticipated?
Not so imperious or stodgy a character after all, eh?
Meditate on The Emperor as Master of Alternative Worlds--and Alternative Selves--if you need to see ways to reinvent conditions in your current, accepted reality or your habitual hunch.
What worlds can this Emperor connect to bring something completely fresh into being?
