“Attachment is the great fabricator of illusions; reality can be attained only by someone who is detached.” Simone Weil
Reversed 8 of Swords and Reversed 7 of Cups: You CAN be free if you’re willing to release illusions. It may sting for a minute but it’s usually a relief, once you get down to it. It takes a large amount of energy to keep any light from making it through the cracks. It’s tiring. And letting go sure opens up possibilities!
If you find yourself doggedly clinging to a specific view, emotionally invested, it limits growth, effectively blinding you to higher perspective. You may find certain issues are just painful to broach or tendency to feel upset questioning a sacred (emotional) cow. That’s a pretty good hint you’ve got something hiding behind the curtain, some other energy feeding into it that could stand to be addressed. There’s an interest in maintaining an illusion, or it wouldn’t be maintained. Look for the interest, the purpose it’s serving you.
Whatever it is you don’t feel like you can question? Be open to hearing it—without judgment, please—if there are indications to look. Have compassion and forgive yourself, and you’ll feel safe enough to turn on the light.
Does this resonate with you?
