Living In Balance

The Balance Of Life and Spirit

Black and WhiteMany people these days are taking a good look at themselves and their lives, trying to find a balance for achieving happiness. Or at the very least contentment. They look at how they interact with their family unit, how they conduct themselves within business matters and how much time they spend on making the all mighty dollar and that illusive career or achievement of success. And many realize they’re living a life out of balance and wondering how to find the solution.

A lot of people shy away from looking within as part of the recipe for change. They think of looking within and an exercise to become critical of the self and that introspection seems like it only makes things worse.  They being playing the blame game of what has been, or what choices have made that contributed to the imbalance.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: King of Swords

King of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Be careful  with the emotions you’re using to tie things together. You could be looking at the situation with a warped view. Don’t read too much into the issue at hand. It’s not as bad as you’re making it out to be and you could be starting a battle that’s not necessary in the first place. Put your sword down for now, survey your domain and keep an eye on things. But do so quietly and without reaction..for today at least.


Additional Insight:

Our past experiences mold our perspectives and can cause us to see what’s not really there. When you react on these emotions you can turn a mole hill into a mountain and make things a lot worse than they really are. For today at least, keep an eye on your domain and take notes. But don’t use knee jerk reactions to respond or you’ll blow things up out of proportion and lose the battle at hand. Instead, take notes, gather facts and tomorrow when you’re in a better frame of mind, you can decide what course, if any; needs to be taken. And you’ll win that battle handily.
