The Taming Power of the
Judgment associated with the image of The Taming
Power of the Great, the oracle says,
Perseverance furthers. Not eating at home
brings good fortune. It furthers one to cross the
great water. This means diving into the
stream of life. Be unafraid. If you were on the
wrong track the oracle would never say
perseverance furthers. And, Not
eating at home means getting out into the
world, exploring, having adventures. Theres
no doubt about the message here.
the verse that is highlighted specifically for
you by todays Reading from the image of The
Taming Power of the Great, the oracle says,
The headboard of a young bull. Great good
fortune. I spoke above about the mighty
oak. Here the metaphor is different. But, the
same idea could be applied to my own metaphor.
For the oak the headboard is gravity. Thats

and very loud, then you know what power is when
it is NOT tamed. But it couldnt last. It
played itself out. It was exhausted almost before
the oracle is telling you to welcome those things
that constrain you in the world as you find it,
and also those constraints that you take
willfully upon yourself, so that the energy can
be channeled like an electric current in a wire.
Once good old Ben Franklin harnessed the power of
the lightening in his little kite, nothing could
stop the effectiveness of people.
Your power needs to be constrained if it is to be
of any use to you.
