The lesson of his behavior is that you cannot force people into do something (spritual or on other areas of life) what they do not want to do, or force others to have the same opinion as you.
My question of today is: “How do I react when someone says to me, you’re right, but…?”
I used the Tarot of Jane Austen and pulled the High Priestess. Jane Austen herself represents the High Priestess.
I laughed long and hard when I saw the card. My reaction is that I hold my tongue, while thinking, “I am right”. Very haughty. But not unwise in many situations.
Sometimes there is another reason to keep silent. I know by experience how difficult it is to do the right thing, or to change a lifelong not-beneficial habit, while you know it is the best thing to do that. And often the circumstances in which people live are complicated, packed with different loyalites for instance. And although must say I lean too much to the Five of Teacups when I hear sad stories, the 'keep silent part' after hearing them, belongs to the High Priestess.
