THE THREE OF SWORDS; Sorrow.
Thoughts of sorrow, which come from events and/or past patterns that have not been released and dealt with. This also represents a triangular relationship that generates sorrowful feelings or thought.
Astrologically, this card is Saturn in Libra and is not a vulgar sorrow, but a sorrow of universal consciousness; a quality of melancholy that radiates from the Great Mother. This deep sorrow comes from the fact that She gave Life to Her Beautiful children, who have become monsters in their own eyes. This can be called the Sorrow of Creation, for even we who think so little of ourselves as to be monsters (our own greatest enemy) in our own eyes, feel a form of melancholy after a heart felt creation doesn't live up to our expectations.
Let's ask ourselves this question," If I think that in order to get a great artist to warm up to me, I should of course insult his work." If you have answered," That's ridiculous, the artist will be upset with me and stop listening to anything I say!" or some such, then you can understand that to call ourselves, sinners, inferiors, weakness, cowards, sluggards, evil, bad etc. we are insulting the Greatest Artist ever ....Our Creator! To get God to listen to you you don't beg and plead because you are a miserable wretch; If you do you'll not be heard or seen- Because God can't hear you nor see you as such!, To God you are all Beautiful Children who are made in Its own Image! Approaching God as a grateful, loving child who is proud to be Gods offspring and who knows, that we can never be God, but we are gods by inheritance! This is just common sense! On earth, children who demean themselves cause great sorrow in their parents hearts! I AM Me--- Not--I wish I ain't Me, will get you a personal audience with your Divine Parent! You want to be less sorrowful in your life? Try this. Say , "Thank you God for making me ---me!" Don't beg for what you don't have, thank god for what you do have and the coffers of your Divine inheritance are open to you! Remember the parable of the Prodigal son? The son who wasted his inheritance on useless pursuits didn't receive a return of his wealth by begging his father for more, all he had to do is return to the "original home" of his birth rite and upon approaching that home he was seen and given back all the wealth he never knew he had! To return to the Original Idea, that created us is to know thyself! I Am The Rich Child of A Rich Father----who would never allow me to lack---anything! But by believing in lack, I have chosen it as a reality for myself! Freedom of Choice, can be a great generator of happiness and wealth or a great generator of sorrow and lack! We have Freedom of choice, because God sees us as gods! To not see yourself as a Ruler of your own definition---is to be handicapped and divided emotionally and mentally against yourself! I was defined into being by my Creator....no further definition do I need from anyone---including myself. I am good enough for God, I am good enough for Me! Thank you God for declaring me as your child! This process of thought allows me to create, see error, and correct it ( Wisdom). I trust myself---because God Trusts Me! I am Evolutionary Self Awareness! Now sorrow is a fleeting thing, for my moments of expectation are short. I now know not to assume or expect, rather create , observe and correct error. It is known to me, that I err and that proves to me I am a creator as well. The second law of Thermodynamics is in all creation.[...all things proceed from order to disorder.] and I am unashamed of error as I know that it is 50% of wisdom. It helps us to remember that sorrow is a merging of energy frequencies, (emotions) through struggle that is a dance of power in which difficulty precedes harmony. Enjoy the Dance!
