Precarious situation this fellow is in. His awkward stance spells doom all by itself, at best he will fall in that big hole. He may be on verge of kneeling though...but that right hand is going to bleed like the dickens, the sword in the left hand will come around correctly, but it is made useless by being tangled in the tail of his brain wrappings.
I'm reminded by this card we can create a situation where if someone did offer us a hand we couldn't take it if we wanted to. Those situations seldom happen in an instant, we can spend years refining that house of cards. It is time to just let go of the useless swords of excuses, blame-laying, artificial crutches, and rethink that stance entirely.
"The juggernaut lumbers on, doing what it knows how to do best. It is unwilling to rethink its future, unable to let go of the past. Like the shark, it must keep feeding, only now it is feeding on itself." ~ William Greider
