Judgment — Spiritual Message of the Day

September 13, 2011

Judgment -- Tarot of the MastersEarlier this year I posted an article about the Judgment card and its indication of heeding a call from the Divine, and this post is a follow-up to it.

I recently heard someone say that if we open ourselves to be called, then we will be called to fulfill our soul’s purpose. But many of us don’t hear that call. Why is that? I think the problem lies in that caveat, that we have to open ourselves to be called. This is not nearly as simple as we might think. This openness includes accepting the possibility that our calling will take us places (spiritually speaking) that are unfamiliar, difficult, and even frightening. We have to be able to say, with complete sincerity and trust, “Thy will be done,” no matter what. And I believe that deep down we do understand this risk, and we fear it, since our faith is not yet deep enough. And that fear stops us from opening ourselves to be called.

So maybe we can start with a simple prayer like, “Please just show me the way.” If we can see a glimmer of what our calling is, perhaps it will stop being a frightening prospect.

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.
