Rocking Or Even Keeled

Daily Draw: Cathar Tarot ~ 6 of Wands/Shield/Faith

Home and hearth; successfully even keeled. Credit well deserved.

As I understand it the Cathar basic tenets were "the good principle had created everything good, permanent, immutable; while the bad principle had created everything bad, temporary, perishable."

As Cathars gained adherents rapidly, Catholicism mounted another Crusade...: "Kill them all. God will know his own".

The whole concept leaves me flattened. But this card, showing one on one without conflict, is an answer never allowed to flourish. Pitifully, kill them all is the old men's response to rocking the boat, getting the little people wound up and thinking for themselves. My mind is so often boggled.

  3. When you have religions that focus on dividing the 'goats from the sheep' then violence seems like logic.

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
