Eight of Swords — Spiritual Message of the Day

April 28, 2011

Eight of Swords -- Tarot of the MastersToday we’re going to start with a little exercise.

Make a list of the things you feel you need in order to find happiness. This list can include things like getting a job that pays at least a specific salary, finding and marrying your “soul mate,” or having a home in a good neighborhood. Create that list now before reading the rest of today’s message. When you are done, return and read the rest of this post.

Are you done?

Okay.

Now here’s the message for today from the Eight of Swords. Your list is what’s keeping you from being happy right now. It’s your Prison of Discontent. You see, happiness is a choice and a skill; it’s not a condition you can only attain under the “right” circumstances. So if you make a commitment to release these requirements for happiness and instead find joy in your life right now, in the present moment, you’ll transform your life. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have goals. It just means that you can and should experience joy right now regardless of whether or not you have reached those goals. That’s the way to find and experience lasting joy and peace in your life.

If you enjoy these words of spiritual advice from the cards, you will love my new Tarot book called The Soul’s Journey: Finding Spiritual Messages in the Tarot.
