If We Set The World Aside

Daily Draw: Anubis Oracle ~ Ma'at

Ma'at is the deity of Justice and Truth. When we die, before our soul can go east/west/up/down the scale holds our heart on one side, the ostrich feather on the other. Do they balance? I can't imagine that any human that has spent more than a year on earth would ever balance. And to make it harder, these authors would have me understand that redemption of our heart lies in self-love and self-acceptance.

I'm reminded by this card self-love and self-acceptance are something we are born with which we and the world around us shortly start stripping away. If we remove the pressures, temptations, and questionable role models of the world from the picture we give ourselves a clearer and higher path to follow. For someone else's opinion of us is a useless and hopeless guide. So is trying to compare ourselves to someone else. It is when we weigh our own heart and begin to lighten it we finally find the route to true self-justice.

'"Justice is conscience, not a personal conscience but the conscience of the whole of humanity. Those who clearly recognize the voice of their own conscience usually recognize also the voice of justice." ~ Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn 1918-2008
