New Truths

Daily Draw: Tarot of the Cloisters ~ Temperance

We see the word Temperance we usually think relax, chill, let it go. In truth Temperance is the ability to forge new truths. If something is terribly wrong in our life we need to create new solutions. Obviously what we've been doing isn't working.
I'm reminded by this card that by the grace of God I do not live in Darfur, Libya, Uzbekistan, but a place of peace and beauty. I do not have cancer, nor missing any limbs, I have all my senses. I have people who love me, people I could call in an emergency. My home is full of food, we have jobs, we have no bills beyond mortgage and utilities. With that viewpoint in mind, just how tough would it be to change something that isn't right in my life? It is only the forge that is weak...the opportunity is there to create the Temperance needed.
"All of us tend to put off living. We dream of some magical rose garden over the horizon-instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today." ~ Dale Carnegie 1888-1955
