This morning’s cup is a little different. During a recent conversation about the things of Spirit, I had an insight I’d like to share here with you.
One of the most important things we can do it this time is to make a concerted effort to function in a whole brained way as much as possible. Now I will say that I am not an expert on the Tarot. However, an image from the Tarot is what came when I was having the insight.Everything I’m getting ready to say to you is not mentioned anywhere in any write up I’ve ever seen about the meaning of this card. But this card is what gave me the insight, so I’m going to use it.
The male of the species is more prone to working from the left side of the brain; the logical, linear side, and a female tends to be more right-brained in their functioning. The male is a mental creature, the female more an emotional one.
In order for us to move beyond this realm of duality however, we must integrate, through utilization, both sides of the brain. This can be a scary prospect for anyone who is comfortable with operating out of one side or the other.
As I went looking for an example of The Chariot to use with this article, I became aware of a couple of other things symbolized on the card. There is a star above his head and a square on his chest. The canopy of the chariot is in fact a representation of a starry night sky.
The recent Foundation post was all about as above, so below and perhaps that is why these particular things lit up for me, because that principle was so fresh in my mind.The task here is not only to harmonize the left and right hemispheres of the brain, but to work as well harmoniously with the mind and the heart. If we function in an unbalanced way, we will never achieve wholeness. And if we never achieve wholeness, we cannot move beyond duality.
In fact, if you look at this shield in the center of the chariot that is topped by the wings, you’ll see there a modified Hindu Yoni – Lingham symbol. Looks like the union of opposites to me.
It is only when we are in control of ALL parts of ourSelves, that we are able to drive the Chariot of Mastery to the next level of spiritual development.
