Ra’s Words of Wisdom
It’s the thing about the 2. The classic example of this is the 2/4. Oh, there are probably a billion and a half 2/4s in the world. That’s a lot of human beings. Every major profile like the 2/4 has about 14% of the population. So, we’re talking about a lot of human beings who are 2/4s. Now, think about all that natural talent and genius, all those natural gifts, all that wonder that’s out there. But there’s something that is very basic about the 2 because it is part—again, going back to the tonal architecture—it is part of a primary survival architecture. And the moment that you look at the 2s within the Independent Variable or through the nodal system, you begin to really understand that the hermit as a construct is something that is very, very much a part of the way in which our civilization has evolved.
In other words, deeply rooted in what in the language of Design is known as the ‘hardscape,’ these sheltered enclosed relatively safe environments, the way in which our world has been built, the 1st and 2nd themes tonally and the 1st and 2nd themes in terms of Color, the way in which they operate through the nodal system is defining an environment in which the hermit is in a closed in environment waiting to take advantage. The 2/4 is always waiting for that particular opportunity.
Every 2/4 is caught in the investment program. Who do you invest in? Who do you give your energy to in order to be able to derive your opportunity? One of things to recognize about the 2/4 is that if they’re not correct, they don’t get the call. So they end up being committed to a lot of things. I like to call the 2/4 the missionary. That’s the example of the hermit when it’s called. The moment that it gets its call that’s right for it, oh boy is it up and moving. Unfortunately that’s what it looks like the first 3, 4, 5, 15, 25, 30 times that they do that as notself jumping up because they think they have the call, and then running back and closing the door and hunkering down and swearing that that’s it for that.
It ends up with that terrible reputation, the paper tiger reputation. The 2 that can’t live up to its “this and that.” Everybody sees the 2. Everybody sees intelligence. Wherever there’s a 2 in your Design, if you have one, other people are looking at that and they’re projecting on it. They’re projecting on it and then they call you. And if you’re not correct and if you’re not aware then you jump on whatever that happens to be. And yes, you’ll end up a paper tiger because it isn’t going to work.
