Self examination. Some refer to it as navel watching which I think implies self absorption. Well the one can lead to the other certainly, we probably all know that type of person. As long as we don't have to depend on them for a mental hand up, what does it matter?
I'm reminded by this card, once again, of balance. We all need to look inward occasionally. What makes us really tick, what are our hot buttons and why are they. What lifts and inspires us. The real truth of how we feel and see the others within our daily orbit. After all, honesty within ourselves is a good thing. Honest.
"We've all heard that the unexamined life is not worth living, but consider too that the unlived life is not worth examining." ~ Julia Cameron 1948-
Tarot opened previously closed doors to my own heart with it's merciless quest for the truth, nothing but the truth. They flay the soul and make me say thank you afterward. Each hour spent with my cards is a new lesson to be learned. Viva la Journey.
