Universal Ox

In Hebrew, Aleph is the first letter and is associated with the wind element, the breath of life. The letter Aleph is heiroglyphic for Ox, a symbolism rooted in very early and surprisingly surviving language.

In Daoism, Ox is a common theme in many stories and teachings. Lao Tzu riding the ox, Chuang Tzu’s story of the effortless ox butcher, and the Ten Ox Herding Pictures.

These two themes, in Daoism and in Hebrew mysticism, both seem to express the same archetype related to wind, breath, effortless work, ‘the force’.
