The belief that the creative aspect (or even 'creator') is male (and a ''Father''), and will establish a kingdom, is problematic IMO.

From a Mystical Christianity point of view..

The Father is Emptiness the Tao.

The Father and Jesus being One is a perfect description of Non Duality, of realizing emptiness, of being a Realized Immortal.

Hinduism doesn't have the same concept of emptiness as Taoism or Buddhism or Mystical Christianity. There is Shiva and we are all within Shiva.

The symbolism and initiations I have encountered with the Tarot (Case, Roberts, Lotterhand, Hulse, Townsend, Wang) intend to show that rather than be in an all encompassing deity, we are that deity, just in its different aspects of being the many. I know, I know, here we go again, the One and the Many, but there really isn't any other out than seeing it as such. It is fascinating to see other systems and views and how they have been dealt with.
