Buddha Zen tarot
Your Zen tarot card states:
Loving Kindness is the conscious choice to look at everything with Love and Compassion. With a loving Heart as the background everything you encounter in your life will flow more easily.
It is a fact of life that many of us struggle with being mild. One of the reasons is perfectionism which is unfortunately an integral part of our society as we know it. Perfectionism is a self destructive belief system that tries to minimize risks of negative feelings such as shame and Fear. 'What will others think of me?' Your system tries to avoid criticism by trying to be perfect in the eyes of others.
The criticism is something that exists outside of you and therefore out of your control. Therefore perfectionism will never lead to Happiness. The solutions to our problems are within you and not outside. It starts with loving yourself. Once the resistance to truly Love yourself is dropped, you will experience more and more situations of Compassion. Love yourself in order to be able to Love others.
