18. Star Tetrahedron – Love & Strife – Heart Chakra – Platonic Solids
The star tetrahedron is created when an upward-pointing tetrahedron, representing (fire, air, blade) merges with a downward-facing tetrahedron (water, earth, chalice.) Interlocked and interpenetrating, they represent love and strife as the human nature of the soul. Empedocles (Greek philosopher circa 490–430BCE) identified the four forces of nature: fire, air, water and earth. He saw that these forces were eternally brought into union and separated through love and strife. Love is the power that attracts different forms of matter while strife separates them.
Just as we can energetically feel our heart open and expand in the presence of profound love, we can feel our heart close when surrounded by chaos. The heart holds the universal language of love and is felt without saying a word. Kindness and compassion are two of the most powerful qualities that create loving relationships.
Message: Love and strife are both influencing your life right now. Allow this flow to occur and become conscious of what needs your attention. Love involves making peace within you before making peace with other people or situations that are causing you strife. Seek out those who are real enough to be honest with you, and love you for who you are and who you are becoming.
“Love is not a thing to understand. Love is not a thing to feel. Love is not a thing to give and receive. Love is a thing only to become and eternally be.” – Sri Chinmoy
If you liked what you read and want more... you may be interested in having the actual guidebook and card deck. The 134 page full-color book is sold separately from the cards. My goal is to find a publisher who can offer this as a set. In the meantime, you can purchase either the book or cards via these links. Thank you for your support. Laural
