All or Nothing

Daily Draw: Tarot of the Cloisters ~ 9 of Vessels

I wonder what would happen if one of these cups fell over. Would the other cups follow suit like dominoes or would they brace and strengthen?

I'm reminded by this card that we are faceted creatures, capable of withstanding all manner of disappointments and tragedies, hiccups, windfalls, and dead ends. It isn't karma, it isn't the end of the cosmos, it is just time to pick up our cup, learn from the experience, and perhaps try something different. Sometimes, having it too easy is as big a hindrance to forward motion as adversity.

"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." ~ Elizabeth Kubler-Ross 1926-2004
