The Weak Link

Daily Draw: Native American Tarot ~ Strength

The Strength in all of us...where do we draw from when terror or tragedy knocks us to our knees in shock? What corner of our core kicks in during an emergency? What makes one person a hero and one a coward in the same situation? How can one person hoe the row to lose 200 pounds and the next one can't stay the course to lose 10? We can say faith in a higher power all we want but I think we've probably all seen people of great faith collapse in uselessness when needed the most.

I'm reminded by this card that human beings are marvelous in their variety, and all the analysis in the world can't fully answer the question, why we are the way we are. Our Strength and the power it begets are one of the great miracles of life.

"Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power." ~ Tao Te Ching 600 BC
