– A path of loving expansion
– Let go of a herd mentality
– Think for yourself
The Self card is the sixth of the reasons for being. It signifies the importance of establishing a unique and individual identity that is free of definitions and labels and embraces unlimited potential.
There are elements within every society that do all they can to quash the independent, the creative, the authentic, because they profit, in one way or another, from doing so. Independent thinkers, creative types, those who defy tradition and convention – and who perceive what is ethical and moral and what is legal as being two different beasts – are people that threaten the status quo. As a result, we are indoctrinated. We are told how to think, told what is normal, told what is beautiful and acceptable, what is right, and what is wrong. Those who disagree, or seek to be independent, or who just do not fit with society’s definition of normal and beautiful, are often met with fear, anger, contempt, ridicule – and even banishment and imprisonment. Independent thinkers can be considered radicals, creative types seen as eccentric or crazy, and those who defy tradition and convention as rebels and freasks. All risk condemnation in one way or another.
