Success. Completion. Euphoria. Integration.
Hee, he he! There is no card I enjoy as much as The World. For me, it always implies success. Perhaps, my understanding of The World this is clear-cut and simple because it was first card I was easily able to memorize when I learned Tarot. Imagine yourself holding the world in your hands and I think you get the gist of this card. Most tarot readers will also make the point that the World represents the end of a cycle. I purpose a different interpretation.
What if you could maintain your entire existence is the vein of the world card? This would first mean balance. We look at the corners of the card and see representations of earth, air, fire and water, seamlessly integrating with the human figure in the middle. Second, this would mean joy. The figure in card is dancing. What if you were always able to perfectly access the limitless bounty that the universe provides? You would recognize and then be thankful. You could operate out of a place of exuberance within yourself.
I think that many cultures and many religions have aimed for this sublime state. Be it a Buddhist in the mountains of Tibet or some chick in NYC trying her best to make The Secret work for herself. The first step lies in knowing this state of contentment exists and is yours for the asking. Now you know this is possible. The next step is how you choose to get there. I know I’m on my way. Are you?
Think about what it would mean to live in perfect harmony with the world around you. Can you think of a day or a moment of perfect synchronicity, complete contentment? Can you look at your life at this moment and think of five things you are incredibly grateful for? Maybe you want to write those things down somewhere. Do you consider yourself a person who can live in the moment or do you continually plan ahead. Perhaps on your next day off, you can resign yourself to not thinking of the future but engage only in activities that make you happy. You immerse yourself in a fun project, take a road trip with no particular destination in mind, sleep late and take a luxurious morning bubble bath. The world is your playground. You should enjoy it!
