Station 7, Jesus Falls the Second Time

At Station Seven Jesus falls the second time. He struggles and stands up to continue again on his way to Golgotha. 


The question for my card is: “How committed am I to my life purpose?” The card that I have drawn is Three of Swords from the Llewellyn Tarot. 


I am committed to my life purpose, because I am pinned down to it by the big sword in the middle. It is a three card, belonging to the Empress, the archetype of creativity and growth, so my commitment bears and will bear fruit, although I am sitting in agony here in ragged clothes. 

It would go too far to compare my life purpose with the suffering of Jesus, but it is a nice touch that the three swords on the card look like the arrangement of the three crosses on Golgotha. Just as Jesus did not choose his life purpose by himself, I do not do that.
