Daily Draw: Nefertari's Tarot ~ King of Cups
This King is shown as he is often accused...detached. Can advise on love and creative endeavors, has a deep understanding, but involved himself? Hardly.
I'm reminded by this card how helpful it would be if we could step back from those people and situations that seem to engulf us, good or bad. Even the people and things we love can drown us and cloud our judgment if we remain too close to the subject. A soupçon of detachment is a good thing.
"We can learn from John Dillinger's Oriental wisdom and his preaching of a Zen-like detachment, as exemplified by his constant reminder to clerks, tellers, or others who grew excited by his presence in their banks: "Just lie down on the floor and keep calm"." ~ Robert Anton Wilson 1932-2007
