Samurai Tarot: The World - The Path
"Be aware of the injustices of this worlds, recognize the darkness and the light. Travel the entire path."
Hermetic Tarot: Four of Swords - Lord of Rest from Strife (R)
Two clenched fists from above - one inward turned, one outward turned.
The points of two daggers meet at the bottom. The daggers at top are united at the hilts.
Two persons meeting, in a sharp, focused situation - experiencing "hits (fists)" of different kinds.
Two persons are joined in one situation - but experience it differently. 
"The symbols for Jupiter and Libra incorporated into the design of the hilts of the daggers"
Who's right - who's wrong? What is justice, what is injustice?
Retreat. Rest.
A person is never in your life by coincidence. 

"Until we have seen someone's darkness, we don't really know who they are. Until we have forgiven someone's darkness, we don't really know what love is.

"There is no Mr. Right because there is no Mr. Wrong. There is whoever is in front of us, and the perfect lessons to be learned from that person."

"When we're willing to see the innocence in another person even when he or she has behaved without love toward us, we activate the Law of Divine Compensation." (Marianne Williamson)

Beware of setting ultimatums.
Beware of making final judgments (or even assumptions).
Beware of listening to the stories that the Ego create around what you experience, and feel.
The hits are not from outside - they come from above/inside.

If there's not primarily love in you - retreat, rest and find it again.
Be the Lord of Rest from Strife.

Travel the entire path.
