With great power, comes great opportunity. Force creates the tools that are needed. The tools and the answer to our questions. We have the balance of energies, so that we can use both aspects of our self (shadow and light) to the greatest advantage.
The card of the day is the Chariot. The hidden energy card is the Sun.
Two very positive cards.
Of course we see the light and shadow side of each card. Both characteristics must be viewed and understood, in order to move forward with great intent. The light can not live without the dark. Day can not live without night. Both are required in order to sustain life. Water can not be without Earth. Fire can not live without Air.
Do you see the balance?
Do you see the two forces working as one?
The trick to all of this, is to not think one out weighs the other, or brush aside the shadow part of a project. The good is just as important as the bad. We must recognize the reason we have deviated from our true path. The shadow part must be accepted in order to understand the light. In order to be guided by the Divine.
Here is where it gets tricky. Some would state that if you think of evil, then evil will surely be seen and take place. I am not stating that you give all your attention to the negative aspect of a subject. I am stating that the possibility must be accepted and then one must move forward with the intent that everything will work out for the greater good.
I think that every super hero must really think about the great impact their decision has on others. They struggle with their ability to make a decision for the whole rather than for the single. To sacrifice one in order to save many.
I always think about Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the show). I enjoyed it to the fullest and miss it dearly. The episode that comes to mind, is the very last episode of the series, where Spike is holding the necklace of the Champion. It is starting to create light and he understands that he can not take it off. That the sacrifice must be his own life, in order to save the mass...in order to save the world.
This is Force. Sometimes we have to die in order to be reborn. Spoiler alert****
Spike does come back later in the Angel series as a ghost and then as a real person, because he sacrificed his own life to save others, he was rewarded by the Gods, to return to this reality.
How does this tie into the Chariot?
We have to be the vessel that the Divine can manifest through. It may hurt. It may burn with great intent. It may even kill our spiritual essence of the past, but one thing is for certain; we will be reborn.
We will be wiser. We will be stronger. We will understand Sacrifice. We will contain power. The power to move forward, when everyone else is advising us to stay back. To not go through the change. To state that what we are doing is a mistake.
I have to remember that I want to be like a river, constantly flowing, rather than the pond of stagnant water.
I allow Source to guide me. I allow the good to be seen. I allow the change to take place. Even if it means leaving a certain situation. Even if it means giving up what I have. Remember that when we are returning to our home, to our center, we arrive with very little items. We arrive with our essence and the spiritual truth we have. We return to find that truth...that we are love. That we are a wonderful being of light. That we do not need all the slight of hand tricks and shimmering light shows to exist. We simply need to recognize that we are part of the whole and the whole is part of us.
