Daily Reading Mar 23

Tue Mar 23

I like the straightforward message of this card combo today. We are reminded to seek, but not expect, balance and – by extension – justice.

There is a parallel here between balance in our lives and social justice.

In life, we often are reminded to balance our flow of energy for ease and comfort. When we feel out of sorts we say something is off-kilter, we’re out if alignment, or imbalanced. This is a metaphorical way of saying that one or more of our needs is not being met while too much attention or energy is spent elsewhere.

The symbol for justice is a set of balanced scales, implying that fairness is a cornerstone principle of a just society. It suggests that when everyone’s needs are met we will have achieved some aspect of justice.

The phrase “I am willing to let go” is a key affirmation in working for both balance in life and justice in society.in both cases, we must work withour intention and action, but cannot get too tied to those outcomes that are beyond our control.

We cannot singlehandedly save the whole world, nor can we heal ourselves in a single day (or even perhaps a single lifetime). When we release those unrealistic expectations, we are less fragile, less prone to disappointment, and more prepared to invest in the difficult work of making the small steps necessary for lasting change.
