Card: The Wheel of Fortune
The Wheel of Fortune is always turning, creating Karmic balance and showing us the temporary nature of all form. It brings the message of Wisdom through the practice of Non-Attachment, which is not to be confused with detachment– a form of disconnectedness.
Non-Attachment, by contrast, is a practice in which we we recognize and connect with the infinite and unchanging stillness within ourselves in order to more gracefully weather the changes which we cannot control. This connection extends to all life, with which we share the same fundamental elements, energies, and Truth.
Many things in this world are outside of our control and this can be an incredibly heavy realization as we continue to witness the pain and hardship of so many. Recognizing our Oneness is crucial to our development of Compassion.
When we add to this the recognition of the changing nature of all things, when we cease fighting against this reality and begin to surrender to the flow of human experience (emotions, joys, pain, and all), when we experience life from deep within that centered point of unchanging Awareness, Truth, and stillness, it is here we can achieve true Peace– within ourselves and in the World.
