Day 34: Hod

The Four of Swords invites us to rest. It reminds us that the mind and the body both need quiet space, not just to recover but to integrate what we’ve learned. There is both Humility and Splendor in rest. The pamphlet “Exhaustion and Exuberance” by Jan Verwoert talks about overworking culture and the gig economy. Verwoert describes the simultaneous stress and joy for some folks that can come from rest — even when it’s forced by conditions of the body and overwork. If you also find yourself pushing, pushing, pushing all the time, this Four of Swords and this pamphlet might be helpful resources to ponder.
