Affirmation / Thought for the Day: ““Learn to unearth your sacred potential.”
― Lailah Gifty Akita
“The Hanged Man signifies a deepening of experience. One of the most powerful experiences of initiation comes when we surrender – when we allow ourselves to let go to Divine Power, and simply wait, as if in suspended animation, with no expectations or demands. So much of our journey through life is controlled by the parts of our personality that seek attention and approval, status or power. And yet when we suspend these concerns and let ourselves undergo genuine initiation, we discover the paradoxical truth that freedom comes from commitment, that independence comes from an acceptance of our interdependence, and that understanding comes from letting go of our attempts to understand.” (pg. 137-138)
