How can we apply the persuasion of Arcanum 11?

Answers from the books of Samael Aun Weor

In the Kabalah this Arcanum is known as the Arcanum of PERSUASION. In essence, Persuasion is a force of subtle spiritual order. Occult wisdom says: “INTENSIFY THE FLAME OF THE SPIRIT WITH THE FORCE OF LOVE.”

In itself, love is a powerful, omnipotent force. The force of love keeps the worlds about their centers of cosmic gravity. These cosmic centers of gravity are the “Suns”. It is due to this that Hermes Trismegistus says: “I GIVE YOU LOVE IN WHICH IS CONTAINED THE WHOLE SUMMUM OF WISDOM”.

A soft word pacifies anger. Persuasion has more power than violence. If a violent person wishes to attack, one directs a friendly word to him and this mollifies his violence. It is for this reason that in Arcanum number 11 there is a woman opening the jaws of a lion; THAT IS THE LIVING FORCE OF PERSUASION.
