The Sun, Kingdom Within Tarot
Theme: The Kingdom is Within You, or Everything You Need is Within, or "Don't Let Outside Events Control Your Happiness"
Or "what we should have learned in school but never did" ;)
"Everything you're searching for is within you. But, As a culture, we constantly look outside of ourselves for answers. We read self help books, listen to podcasts, go to church, hire coaches, and attend seminars. We look for so many things outside of ourselves: validation, satisfaction, permission, love. We base our happiness on factors we can't control and our lives get filled with unmet expectations." (unmistakablecreativity)
"Pain or pleasure, joy or misery, agony or ecstasy, happens only inside you. Human folly is that people are always trying to extract joy from outside. You may use outside as stimulus or trigger, but the real thing always comes from within". - Sadghuru, Inner Engineering
"We can give ourselves validation, satisfaction, permission and love. Paradoxically, when we give these things to ourselves, we are much more likely to get them from other people." (unmistakablecreativity)
Love has nothing to do with someone else. It is all about you. It is a way of being. [...] Even if a loved one is not physically with you anymore, you are still capable of loving. So, what is love then? It is your own quality. You are only using the other person as a key to open up what is already within you. - Sadghuru
"We all want to be seen, heard and above all things loved. But we also have an expectation of what that looks like, how that love is expressed from parents, peers, friends, and romantic partners. With that expectation, we attempt to fill an internal void with external validation. But this kind of love leaks, it doesn't fill us up. We have holes in our hearts because we don't love ourselves. But if we choose to give love to ourselves, we can be kinder to ourselves. When we screw up we can be gentler with ourselves when we fail." (unmistakablecreativity)
- Do you believe that you are worthy of your own time, your own love and your own money?
- Do you ever dress up for no reason? Just for you?
- Do you treat yourself with love, with care, and with respect?
- Do you treat yourself as well as you treat other people?
"Searching outside of yourself for everything that's already within you allows you to avoid responsibility. Realize that everything you're searching for outside of you is already within you. Then, you'll have agency over your life in a way that you never had before." (unmistakablecreativity)
Love yourself and the rest will follow
Because you attract what you (consciously or unconsciously) radiate.
Love yourself and Love will spread. - Me
"When I experience genuine love and acceptance of myself, it just flows out to others" (Deborah)
