Perceived

I find it interesting that I drew the Ace of Swords after drawing the seemingly reversed card of Justice yesterday.  From Rachel Pollack's ~ Spiritual Wisdom
"Does the Sword point up or down? This is a key question. If down, it shows the mental energy entering into physical concerns and daily life. If it points up, the Sword shows the mind's ability to go beyond the distractions of the physical and reach principles of truth."

We hold these truths to be self-evident
that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - Declaration of Independence.

Some times we have such a tight grip on what we hold true that we don't give a thought to others truths.

  1. "Some times we have such a tight grip on what we hold true that we don't give a thought to others truths." Great wisdom in this statement; it is like the open (rather than closed) crown that opens wider than our preferences and opinions.

    1. The generations before me are different from the generations you come from. There has got to be some wiggle room for differences of truth.

  4. I think there are multiple truths. Some more heard than others. Your post reminds me when I speak mine to allow space for others to speak theirs.

    1. That can be the hard part. The only way to sure of things we think, is everyone thinks like us. Boring.
