Daily Draw - Allowing

 Card: Allowing

Message: "Radical acceptance says yest to Reality in any given moment so what's needed can come next."

This card comes with the image of Shiva as Nataraja, God of the Dance. Shiva can show his power through dance—he controls the rhythm of life, and if he stops dancing, life stops. However, if he begins dancing, life begins again. It is an endless dance of creation, preservation, destruction, and paired graces is hidden a deep understanding of our universe. The Agamas proclaim, "The birth of the world, its maintenance, its destruction, the soul's obscuration and liberation are the five acts of His dance." This imagery represents creation and destruction. The beginning and the end.

When we pull this card, we are reminded that there is a beginning and ending to everything in our world. From birth to death, from day to night, each has it's own celebration of birth and welcoming of death. We as humans live in this cycle and will need to come to terms with those things around us that may not always arrive at the right time. We need to be willing to accept those things that arrive without warning so that the next in the progression can arrive. Just as Lord Nataraja begins the dance on one side to welcome life, he circles around and welcomes in the end in the next turn.


We have within us the power to either dwell in sadness and loneliness. Existing in the suffering of the world or we can open our minds to see what good can come from the events unfolding. We can see only sadness or like Lord Nataraja, circle the floor in glorious solute to the divine and dance the dance of apocalypse and creation as he dances away the illusory world of Maya transforming it into power and enlightenment.
