The Eden Threesome

Gen 2.23: And the human [adam] said: “This time it is bone from my bones and genitals [baser] from my genitals. I call her woman [asha] since from a man [aysh] she was taken.

Th Eden threesome is shown in Tarot card 6, the Lovers. This Tarot card illustrates, besides other things, our original peaceful state of mind. It’s the state of mind we reach when we become enlightened. The angel is adam, the woman is asha, the man is aysh. Surprised that Adam is divine? You shouldn’t since he was created in God’s image and likeness. In the context of spiritual psychology, the Eden threesome is superconsciousness, subconsciousness, and self-consciousness.

Why genitals?

Strong’s Concordance of basar: בשר basar {baw-sawr’} from 01319; TWOT – 291a; n m AV – flesh 256, body 2, fat fleshed + 01277 2, lean fleshed + 01851 2, kin 2, lean fleshed + 07534 1, mankind + 0376 1, myself 1, nakedness 1, skin 1; 269 1) flesh 1a) of the body 1a1) of humans 1a2) of animals 1b) the body itself 1c) male organ of generation (euphemism) 1d) kindred, blood-relations 1e) flesh as frail or erring (man against God) 1f) all living things 1g) animals 1h) mankind

The genitals represent the male aspect of the Life-force. What is the female aspect? Eve, the Mother of All Life. Bone and genitals are a special variation of the cosmic dualism of water and spirit (Genesis 1.2), in layman’s terms energy and substance. This is the same as Yin and Yang and Purusha and Pakriti. More Biblical variations of this dualism:

  • Olive and fig tree
  • Flesh and blood
  • Wine and bread

The Etymology of Asha and Aish

Aish, איש, differs from ashah, אשה, only in one letter. The two letters they have in common, אש, ash, means fire. The letter unique to aish is י, whose mystical significance is the spirit or Life-breath. The letter unique to Asha is ה, the formative letter that turns adam into adamah (the ground from which adam’s form was molded).
Ash is the inner fire, the fire of life, passion. It’s the fruit of the tree of lives. It’s the invisible, mental fire that keeps us incarnate, fighting, and mating. Our self-consciousness is always tinged with passion and ambition. We are sons and daughters of fire.

Strong’s Concordance of aysh:

איש ‘iysh {eesh} contracted for 0582 [or perhaps rather from an unused root meaning to be extant]; TWOT – 83a; n m AV – man 1002, men 210, one 188, husband 69, any 27, misc 142; 1638 1) man 1a) man, male (in contrast to woman, female) 1b) husband 1c) human being, person (in contrast to God) 1d) servant 1e) mankind 1f) champion 1g) great man 2) whosoever 3) each (adjective)

Strong’s Concordance of asha:

אשה ‘ishshah {ish-shaw’} from 0376 or 0582; TWOT – 137a; n f AV – wife 425, woman 324, one 10, married 5, female 2, misc 14; 780 1) woman, wife, female 1a) woman (opposite of man) 1b) wife (woman married to a man) 1c) female (of animals) 1d) each, every (pronoun)
