Vigilance

Daily Draw: Hermetic Tarot ~ Emperor

Authority.
There is no wind this morning but the smoke from the garage woodstove is in constant flux. Just like authority.

At this minute I can disregard any authority at all.
If I decide to remodel my house suddenly the county building codes, permits, and inspectors rule the job.
Were I foolish enough to get a speeding ticket, suddenly the police and courts hold sway over an important part of living in the sticks. No buses here.
Were I to catch cancer again, I am the authority, but guided by dozens of lesser authorities.

I'm reminded by this Emperor, freedom is an illusion that requires vigilance to maintain.
