Card of the Day
TWO of SWORDS Reversed
Ponder this ...
• What new insights or fresh perspectives are illuminating alternate choices ?
• Can I believe in the impossible and strive to achieve or manifest it ?
• How can I apply counterintuitive thinking towards the approach or decision needed ?
• What side am I going to take and commit to ?
At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new. This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense. ~ Carl Sagan
We may have thought we knew what our options or choices were … but new insights and a willingness to broaden our perspective, open our minds to what might seem more fantastical possibilities, allow our imagination to take a fresh and creative approach, over the next couple of weeks can helps us discover that the options and choices aren’t so limited or clear cut as we might have previously thought or resigned ourselves to believing.
There is a need to pierce the veil of obscurity and obfuscation in order to get to the heart of a matter, to get to the point and find out what the truth and reality actually is.
Sometimes, we can be a bit too eager, pointed and demanding in our desire to force the truth, so let’s not allow that overeagerness or overconfidence that we are so certain we are right that cause us to stop paying attention and actually listening … but it is time that we determine where we stand on an issue, and that we become willing to stop straddling the fence and come down on the side of what we feel is right, true and just rather than merely trying to placate and keep everyone happy and avoid conflict at all costs.
As our mind begins to grasp and gain clarity around fresh, new perspectives and possibilities, let’s be willing to make a choice and start taking action in a direction, albeit one that may have not seemed to exist just yesterday, or one that may appear to be idealistic, but we know that we’re up to the challenges and the outcome or solution or destination has the potential to be fantastic and better than what the previous options or choices seemed to hold.
Counterintuitive thinking will yield higher wisdom, greater insights, bolder choices, and more satisfying outcomes.
