Lovingkindness in Humility
Today we begin the week of Hod, humility or splendor. The first step in cultivating a life of humility is Chesed, lovingkindness. We must first love ourselves, for humility does not mean bringing ourselves low, it is about recognizing our gifts and seeing where it is we can grow and learn. The 3 of Pentacles reminds us that we can grow and learn through working with others and collaborating, sharing our gifts with one another to the benefit of all. This way we create a strong foundation upon which we can create new things and recreate ourselves.
