The card shows one of the famous four sightings of Siddhartha in which he encountered human suffering which made him want to find a cure. Michael Place says in the book about the deck that this card shows that ‘dukkha’, the experience of being “off center” or “not right”, usually translated as suffering, belongs to ordinary life. Ah well, this was my experience today.
Of course that card plays a game with me too... I did overreact a little bit. I was not that sick as the man on the card.
