“Step back, look at the big picture and let time unfold without meddling.”
In our humanness, do we not seek control? What an illusion control is! It teases us into thinking we actually have influence and affect upon others and the outcome of the situations that we find ourselves in. Let’s be clear, control is a trap. We have control of exactly one thing. Our choices. Our choice to act or react. Our choice to think healthy or unhealthy thoughts. Our choice to engage or let go. That’s it. How others respond and react is totally upon them. The Law of Free Will is at play and sometimes we forget that is our humanness. This card is reminding us to take a step back and look at the big picture of our lives, and note where we are expending our energy by trying to control the world around us. More importantly, we are being asked to take control of our choices and how we show up in the world. Mahatma Gandhi said it best when he said “be the change you wish to see in the world.” This week we are being asked to let go of the illusion of control, and embrace the bigger picture and our choices within it.
