BEWARE OF DUTY
“Should is an ordinary, everyday word — except when it is used to indicate an order that may not be refused. Then should becomes a finger waving under the nose. …Should users build prison cells for themselves. They are so focused on what they should do — that they cannot think about what they can do, what they might do in the future.”
— Dr. Arthur Freeman and Rose Dewolf
Many of us have been taught to do our duty. What does this imply to you? For me, ‘doing my duty’ means doing something I really don’t want to do. My heart’s not in it, and so the energy for the act isn’t there. I have to force every move. Usually, there’s underlying resentment. When this is the scenario, tasks may get done but there’s no gift to the world.
We do not truly serve the world if we give to others but neglect our own truth and our own needs. It’s only when our own needs are fully met that we can generously and whole-heartedly give of ourselves. It’s not selfish to look after ourselves — it’s essential!
“To serve is beautiful, but only if it is done with joy and a whole heart.”
— Pearl S. Buck

“The mind can store an estimated 100 trillion bits of information – compared with which a computer’s mere billions are virtually amnesiac.”
-Sharon Begley et al (in Newsweek, 1986)
Technology may attempt to keep pace with the mind, but no computer will ever be as intelligent as a human being. A computer represents just one kind of intelligence, while we wonderful creatures also exhibit emotional intelligence, spiritual intelligence, physical intelligence, and so much more that’s just not programmable into a mere machine

Daily Tarot: The Lovers
If you’re hesitant to do something or to make a decision, that’s OK. What urgently needs to be done will be done, so don’t worry about it. There may simply be too many options and too many conflicting requests coming up all at the same time. Sometimes hesitation can be a sign of prudence and a refreshing change from impulsiveness.
