A Personal Journey Through the Tarot: Ace of Swords
One common example of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. Human’s like routine and are very good at convincing themselves that a convenient lie is actually a truth. Once we set our mind to an idea it is hard to shake. We easily see all the evidence that supports the idea while we blatantly ignore the evidence that opposes it.
The good Doctor Timothy Leary once said “your brain is a reality generating device.” The Buddhist philosophy states that our thoughts create the world. Both these ideas speak to the power of the mind to shape how we experience our lives. These ideas suggest that if you are looking for a change in your life, the easiest place to start is a change in your attitude, a new idea.
Today I draw the Ace of Swords and reflect upon my assumptions. Do my beliefs empower me or limit me? Have I adopted someone else’s attitude without fully examining it? How can I start to imagineer a new reality for myself?
