What good does mercy do? We respond to the cries because it brings out the altruistic side of us, our empathy, our fundamental human instinct. But this has also became our weakness. It’s existence was for us to assist one another to build a stronger community. But because of greed and selfishness, it is often being taken advantage of. Your mercy for a partner who cheated on you, your mercy for your parents who abused you, your mercy for a friend who only contacts you when he/she needs you. Because they don’t want to face their own wrongs, they beg for your mercy. We ended up needing to bear the consequences that they originally had to bear. That money that your ex still owes you, that prejudice that your parents still use against you, that listener that you have to be when you are also dying to be heard. So what is mercy? It’s something you should suppress or hide, something that symbolises as being “not strong enough” and “too nice”, something that’s not socially acceptable. I envy those who don’t have mercy for anyone. Emotions are just too extra.
As an adult, you can do whatever you want. You also have to deal with the risks of doing whatever it is you choose to do. Today I made a choice to eat this 1 lbs Strawberry Cake while I was at work. I was told I’d never be able to eat all of the cake. So the next time someone tells you that can’t do something you have a choice. You can agree with them and not do what they said you couldn’t or you can eat the 1 lbs of cake one bite at a time. If you know you can do it, do it. Making an excuse is making a choice not to do it. #nabiexodus#motivationfromtheexodus#motivation#contemplation#metaphor#thoughts#choices
Opinions on this spread? Not the ideal card for outcome but has led to a lot of thought and a wake up to be kinder to myself and let go.I have been suffering from huge indecision (7 of cups) which has been quite debilitating at times and led me to crawl totally into my head (the hermit). I haven't seen the wood for the trees, I have been so confused. The emperor i think is my desire for someone to tell me what to do and take decisions away and the high priestess is telling me to trust my instinct and intuition again. (My inability to represented by reversed judgememt). My self represented by conflict in my head. Fortune reminding me so much out of my control. Queen of swords my desire to find peace and be that person. Thrown by 9 of swords as my outcome card..... not what anyone would choose. Hoping it is a warning to let go of the indecision and regret that is leading me at the moment and nothing more sinister! #tarot#tarotcards#oldenglish#indecision#indecisive#tarot#dontloosesleep#anxiety#anxiousmind#anxiousmind#noregrets#nineofswords#thehermit#bekind#reflection#contemplation#seethesoul#introspection
