control

The only thing you sometimes have control over is perspective. You don't have control over your situation. But you have a choice about how you view it.” Chris Pine

Control is the desire or ability to direct or influence, manage and manipulate your surroundings and events. It is the attempt to impose your will on the world, to make everything conform to our expectations. Control, however is an illusion that separates us from the natural flow of life. It is a source of frustration, anxiety, and suffering. True freedom comes from letting go of control and embracing uncertainty. Drawing the card of Control challenges you to discern what is within our control and what is not, recognising that by surrendering to the flow of life that you find true empowerment.

Control Mantra: I surrender to the flow of life, releasing the illusion of control.
