Unfettered Mind

Daily Draw: Thoth Tarot ~ Ace of  Swords

We can resist life, we can accept life, or we can pick up the mental Sword and fight for the life we want and need.

I'm reminded by the rather grim suit of Swords, life does drop us in the carpola fairly often. What we make of that, and how we choose to fight is not written in our DNA.  We aren't dandelion fluff floating to wherever, we have minds and will and independent thought.

"The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking." ~ A.A. Milne 1882-1956  War With Honour

  1. Perhaps there is a fourth option? Accepting what we can't control while dealing with what we can do something about.

    1. I agree with Bev. Life has taught me that lesson often enough:D

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
