As I was reading the definition for the Awakened Essence of Temperance what stuck in my mind and resonated with me was, "Cooperation not Competition", through the Divine Feminine within. Sowing the seeds for future generations - being responsible for finding the balance of masculine and feminine energies with you.
Then through these balanced energies facing your inner fears and demons, treating yourself with love and compassion so that then you can be of service to others and assist them in developing trust and faith and releasing their fears.
So through cooperation we assist each other to grow, expand and create a better world for us and all those who follow.
I think a beautiful example of this sharing is a sport called "Free Running". My son became interested in it through a fried while he was in high school. He explained why he liked it so much. He said, "Mom, there is no competition what I love is the cooperation as we each teach other to do the moves, jumps and flips. We are there to watch out for each other and they only competition is you with yourself, just pushing yourself to be better and do more."
He said what he loved most is learning about his body's balance and to be aware of his center point. How appropriate! I've always loved this explanation because it is exactly how we can view ourselves, our spiritual journey and awareness of where we are - our place is to cooperate, find balance and to be ever expanding.
Love to all,
" I AM THE BALANCE OF FEMININE AND MASCULINE IN COMPLETE COOPERATION"
