gain and loss,
pleasure and sorrow,
come and go like the wind.
To be happy,
rest like a giant tree
in the midst of them all.
This weeks soul-searching exercise is from Isha Lerner's Triple Goddess Tarot.
We all need to establish the principle of universal harmony and balance firmly within ourselves in order to rest assured that behind all appearances, no matter how seemingly cruel or random, resides a greater truth, one that expresses the higher laws of spiritual governance.
At this stage of initiation, the spiritual aspirant pauses to reflect upon the origins of life and to seek a greater understanding of his or her karmic circumstances and conditions.
One of the many wisdom Goddesses, Athene applied her considerable wisdom to commerce, farming, and many other mundane arenas of life.
You are invited into the temple of Athene, where balance and discrimination are elevated to the level of skillful means. Careful consideration and observation give you the chance to set your karmic records straight.
We must strive to live according to higher principles and truths, walking a grace-centered path with awareness of spiritual laws and justice.
Cultivate discernment in your life, but learn to let go of the burden of judgment, condemnation, and criticism.
Embrace the notion that your judgments are always fundamentally about you and not about the other person.
We’re constantly creating circumstances and conditions in our lives that will help us see ourselves more clearly.
Reflect on your life objectively,
review it as if you are looking into someone else's world.
See yourself clearly .... who are you?
