Breakthrough or Breakdown???

For the next few months, I will choose cards from the African American Tarot deck as a prompt for my blog posts. Let’s see what spiritual insight I come up with!

King of Wands + 7 of Swords + Temperance

It’s coming.

Can you feel it?

You are on the brink of a major breakthrough or breakdown.

Which will you choose?

Jess was training for a marathon. A week prior to the event she decided to run the full length of the marathon in preparation. She’d trained for months and had confidence that she could complete the run in record time. The morning air was warm as she began her run. Mile 1 came and went, as did Mile 2, 3, 4, 5.... Jess felt good. After another few miles Jess’ joints began to ache due to the humidity in the air. She remembered the possibility of rain showers. Intermittently rain falls. Jess continues. Intermittent drops become drizzle. Jess shrugs it off and continues. Thunder roars in the balance. It’s mile 15. Jess is on a roll and refuses to let a little rain stop her.

The storm comes. The rain, now heavier, begins to fall and threatens Jess’ resolve. She is determined to complete her run but is starting to worry. “The road is slick, what if I slip? My knees hurt. Another 11 miles. I don’t think so.” Jess is now considering all the reasons why she should stop running. Weary; she begins to slow down…

Jess has a choice. She can allow her thoughts and the physical conditions to impede her progress or she can push on. This goes for you as well. Will you allow stinkin’ thinkin’ or unpleasant conditions to slow you down or stop you? Or will you rise above the lower nature and  tap into your passion? Will you remain determined in the face of obstacles? Or will you throw in the towel? Will you choose moderation and discipline? Or will you overindulge and forgo your purpose?

This is your time.

Choose wisely.
