We live in what some might call a very patriarchal culture. It seems that politics and governance are in the first place controlled by men and where things are not controlled by men, there seems to be a discrepancy with how much women are paid compared to men doing the same job. It is almost instilled into us that the outward parts of society are controlled and played out by men.Continue reading “Two of Wands, Queen of Pentacles and Seven of Swords”
The human mind always links Justice to injustice.

The human mind tends to break itself up into different parts, allowing us to only glimpse things through very small ideas or mental images. It does not quite give us the full picture of Divinity with us. It has been created from the dust (false opinions) and cannot represent who we really are or what we are. These false sparks often lead to judgement of others and allow us to be gods over a kingdom where we believe good and evil exist for our sole purpose to sit in judgement. Creating a world for ourselves far more devious and complex than the one before with each judgement reaching out like tentacles touching those around us. A world of illusion based on hearsay, time honoured beliefs and simply false conclusions.
It is no surprise then that looking at Divinity from a human standpoint; Contemplation, (the pathway to God whom we call Love) as well as Love in its pure form and the spark of the Divine have all been categorised into three separate parts only accessible on a single basis, never together. This prevents us from accessing the fullness of Divine, the belief that Love is really here. It reduces Love down to academia only found here and there and looking through a mirror darkly, a thing called faith.Continue reading “10 of Pentacles (Contemplation) Ace of Cups, (Love).
