Card of the Day
FIVE of PENTACLES
Ponder this ...
• What holds little value, meaning or purpose in my life that I keep investing in ?
• Am I being myself and seeking what I want, or merely trying to capture an image of what others have said I should be or want ?
• What codependent situations is it time for me to recognise and detach myself from ?
• What gives me deeper meaning and purpose in life that I'm not actively engaging in ?
There are two questions we must ask ourselves : The first is 'Where am I going?' and the second is 'Who will go with me?' If we ever get these questions in the wrong order we are in trouble. ~ Sam Keen
Dig deeper … we may have become so fixated and dependent on the material, surface, physical aspect of things that we have lost sight of, or lost touch with, a sense of deeper meaning, purpose, direction, calling.
Pay attention to areas and aspects of life where we are feeling bored, restless, dissatisfied, unfulfilled. This is where we are seeking something more meaningful, something that gives us a sense of greater purpose or taps back into our true nature and passions and ambitions.
Perhaps we have gotten lost trying to play Keep Up With the Joneses, too often comparing what we have, what we’re doing, what we aspire to with what we think we are supposed to want, do, be in order to be officially successful in the eyes of others, society, social media.
But this may have created a void of vapidity, because we have lost sight of ourselves, and become codependent on others (people, culture, media) to give us validity and acceptance according to their measure, demands, definitions rather than being truly liberated to find our own way, determine our own success, validate our own self and life as worth and Right.
Seek deeper meaning, greater purpose, a more satisfying truth in all that you do, how you present yourself to the world, what you aspire to and set goals for attaining. If it’s there to be found beneath the surface ready to reveal itself when we’re willing to look, then that will offer illumination and guidance for how to move forward. If there seems to be nothing there when we look for more, then it’s time that we accept that fact and move on, look elsewhere, free ourselves from what we have bound ourselves to merely for the acceptance, adulation and/or validation of others.
