XII. The Hanged Man

Certainly you have noticed that even though you invested a lot of energy into something, you have hardly progressed, to put it mildly. As if you had not reached any improvement in spite of toiling hard. Let us examine this question a little bit, because in essence, self-abnegation is a good thing. Yet, were you labouring for a cause that is yours? There is a tremendeous difference between service and serving. Your task is not to squander your precious energies that are for creation, so that others can feel good. Your task is to balance them; while you are doing your thing. There is nothing more important than what is important to you! It is not selfishness, when one’s value judgment is clear. It is creating walks of life where even those you love will feel good, together with you.
