Card messages in the Illuminated position.

+ Willfulness

(Dignity, Invested,)

  1. Willfully resisting change is warranted when the change produces needless pain or diminishes a vital principle. Churchill knew this and stood against a tyrant. Stand your ground!
  2. Willfulness is the determination to stay the course and not be swayed by outer forces. Careful not to confuse it with rigidity or absolutism. It might serve you to invoke willpower.
  3. If change has slowed to a trickle or none at all, then only will power will override stuckness!
Quotes reflecting the meaning in this pole
  • “Bondage is the life of personality, and for bondage the personal self will fight with tireless resourcefulness and the most stubborn cunning.” Aldous Huxley

Perhaps you are fighting for the security of a prison? Are your heals dug in because you fear you might note cope with the advancing change? Get neutral. Learn how to do the thing you resist.
  2. Willfully resisting change is warranted when the change produces needless pain or diminishes a vital principle. Churchill knew this and stood against a tyrant. Stand your ground!
  3. Resistance is high because fear of the unknown prevents motion and garners anger to defend its immobility.
