Conflict

This card is definitely one of conflict.  This card makes me think of who, is the top bird of the top bird?  Eagles are majestic and the National Emblem.  Who cannot say they have not experience a moment of awe when one is seen.  For years most only got to see them on a local PBS program, now they can be seen throughout the USA.  In some areas they are over abundant and there can be territorial fighting.

It can be the same with my thoughts.  Sometimes my mind can be filled with such conflicts and several things fighting for my attention at same time.  With so much going on how do I chose which one to take care of first?  Some call it the 'monkey mind' so much chatter one can hardly hear herself think.  The most demanding one will get the bulk of my attention, and I always remember my Father saying, "the squeaky wheel gets the oil." 
It is what it is, deal with it.

  1. As a former teacher I often tried to give attention to the more quiet children, the ones that didn't raise their hand to signal they they had something to share. It could be beneficial to try to pay attention to the less obtrusive thoughts

    1. You are right. The quiet, unobtrusive ones are the ones that can get you. Maybe all the background noise is covering the things or people that really need attention. Thanks for extra insight.

  2. My most heavy-hitting thought that dominates my mind is usually the one with the most emotion attached to it. Which doesn't necessarily make it a good one to listen to!
