Something To Remember About Compassion

CompassionIt’s Hard…Asking For Help

It’s hard to be positive when you’re faced with such negativity.
It’s hard to smile with joy, when anger is sent your way.
It’s hard to stand up to challenge, when so many kick you while you’re down.
It’s hard to shelter those around you, when you’re at the bottom asking for help to get up.
It’s hard to be compassionate, when others compare their inconvenient trials to your desperate struggles.

Is it no wonder that those who are at their wit’s end, pull away, ignore the phone, delete the emails, cry in private and fall out of your life? Sometimes those in struggle can’t take that one more hateful word, one more comment of guilt, one more blame they had no control over.

Remember someone always has it worse than you. And they’re not responsible for the choices you make to help them or not. Don’t assume others don’t know about your sacrifices. Don’t accuse them of being ungrateful, when they’ve said thank you or they appreciate your past help. No one “wants” to ask for help. It takes a lot of strength, courage and humility to turn to others. Don’t smack them down for it. You maybe their last and only option.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knave of Cups – Inverted

Knave of Cups - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Hold steady today and allow the Divine energy around you to cushion your path. You’ve had enough hard knocks. The Divine in your life is guiding your path upward though you may not see it or feel it right now. Don’t make rash decisions or give up on your options. It will be ok.

Additional Insight:

You have a lot going for you under the table, even though you can’t see it. Allow the positive energy you’ve put forth all year to create the path you are to be on. What you “need” and what you “want” may not be the same thing. But you are being guided to a better place and to a place that needs you as much as you need to be there.

You done your work and put forth your dreams and desires. Now stay the course and allow that energy and effort to manifest as it’s intended. Giving up, changing direction or tossing it all away because it’s not working out as quickly as you want it to will only set forth blocks in your path.

It’s not a time to do nothing. Don’t sit there and expect things to appear out of no where. You still need to move forward with the plans you’ve been working on. So make the phone calls, keep the appointments, meet the deadlines you set. But don’t work against those things out of frustration or a defeated attitude.

Hold still for a moment. Take in a deep breath and release the stress. See the success of your path being showered with yellow rose pedals to celebrate your success! Visualize it. Feel it. Know it. And it will be.

If you need additional focus, don’t forget the 5 Minute Alignment Meditation practice. You can do that meditation every morning to set your day on the right path and gain guidance for where you need to be and the direction you need to go through out the day.
