Ace of Cups — Spiritual Message of the Day

October 30, 2011

Ace of Cups -- Tarot of the Masters

I have found that if you love life, life will love you back. — Arthur Rubinstein

An ace is the first card in its suit, and the suit of Cups is about love, so one message of the Ace of Cups is to see love first. Before we see flaws, weaknesses, or vice; before we see differences, disparity, and separation; and before we see invective, abuse, or insults; before any of that, see love first. Love everyone, and whether they are in our presence or merely in our thoughts, see their good first and foremost, for that is what’s truly real. All else is illusion, either theirs or ours.

Many people resist hearing this message, insisting that we have to face the evil in others. The problem with that argument is that it misunderstands this message. This message doesn’t mean that we should ignore the problems in others. It merely says that we should always see love first and realize that the negative in life is either a matter of our illusions or a manifestation of the illusions of others. Then, with that realization, we can act from a powerful place of love.

Recall the Kabir quote that was mentioned in a prior post about the King of Wands:

“Do what you do with another human being, but never put them out of your heart.”

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.
