Ten of Wands — Spiritual Message of the Day

October 22, 2011

Ten of Wands -- Tarot of the MastersWhen life seems too arduous and our load to heavy to bear, it helps to consider if perhaps we have taken on too many obligations or bitten off more than we can chew. Or maybe we have allowed ourselves to be burdened by things that other people feel we should do. In either case, when we realize that we have let ourselves be “should upon,” it’s time to reexamine what we want to do in life. It’s time to realize that the countless mundane things we think we “should” do are weighing us down and blinding us to the only thing we truly should do, which is to remember the reality of our divine Self.

That feeling of being weighed down and trudging through life may be our deep, unconscious realization that we are not doing the important work of seeing the Divine in everything around us and in everything we do. But if we can see that, we will release our sense of being burdened so that we may travel our path in ease.

As a postscript, I want to point out that this does not mean we should neglect or walk away from our true responsibilities to other people. Instead, this message includes reevaluating what is important and reassessing what we can do to shoulder our responsibilities. For example, if you have children, can you walk away from the responsibility of taking care of them? No, of course not. However, that certainly doesn’t mean that you have to work long hours to give them a wealth of material gifts. Giving them your presence and being involved in their lives can be a spiritual practice in itself, one that can renew your soul as much as it enriches their lives.

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.
