The King Of Cups
The King of Cups, is a natural healer and therapist, he responds to emotional needs as he is emotionally stable and secure. I see many qualities in this card. When I talk about the King of Cups, I talk about emotion, creativity, and the unconscious. I love this card because it reminds us to nurture ourselves, and allow others to nurture us.
The King of Cups also represents kindness and compassion. In our lives, it can be very difficult to practice kindness and generosity toward others, and expect nothing in return. To be kind and compassionate, we need to have a very deep understanding of our feelings and emotions. Kindness has its true source deep within us, and while some people are innately kind, it's something that everyone can cultivate by choice.
I find this card vital as we often need to take time to become more self-aware in order to be nicer to both ourselves (remembering that we all have weaknesses) and to others. Sometimes being kinder to ourselves involves monitoring the negative chatter that keeps putting us down.
To be like the King of cups, we need to find balance, and to get the emotional balance we need, we also need to stopping any negative thinking. Even when we're feeling at our very worst, we must remember that other people are also feeling uncertainty, pain, hardship, sadness, disappointment, and loss. If we can understand this, we can also be more compassionate toward others.
The King of cups means a lot to me, because it shows me that we can all transform our lives through kindness. Changing how we live and how we view the world, is a lifestyle choice. Many people wonder how to change the world for the better, I think the king of cups comes to say that it takes one random act of kindness at a time.
