Essence: The Malkhut (ten) of Wheels is about gratitude. We feel thankful for all our blessings, all we have, all we’ve experienced and for our gift of life. We are grateful for however much or little we have and feel that it is enough. We are thankful for the people and relationships in our life, even the difficult ones. We love fully.
The Malkhut represents a balance and bringing together of all aspects of our life. Here we attain fulfillment through utilizing our spiritual, emotional, intellectual and material involvements. Our life is integrated.
The Malkhut of Wheels may also mean we’ve found a way to express our passion and have it support us. Our skills, emotions and sensitivities flow together. We’ve learned how to balance our relationship needs with our need for work and our experience of living a meaningful life.
Cycles of activity and rest are accepted and lived fully. We feel free, and can be fearless and joyful in all areas of our life. We are able to nurture the people we love and take care of our own needs at the same time. We are responsible and experience our connection to the Whole Holiness.
We accept change as essential to the ebb and flow of life’s tides. We recognize that self-knowledge and learning involves the continual process of changing, integrating and deepening our awareness of life itself. Enlightenment is not a fixed state but rather the continual awakening of consciousness, of coming to know Truth.
When reversed, lingering fears and habits of thought hold us back from the realization of our wealth and a true acceptance of life. We may have it all yet somehow we’re unable to recognize our good fortune.
When the Malkhut is reversed we are stuck in the perception that we are the object of our lives, not the subject. We are too passive. We don’t own our life. Our good or bad fortune is seen as something that just happened, or was done to us without our participation. It is seen as something we have no responsibility for, not as something we have created or chosen.
We need to develop forgiveness. We need to forgive our selves and others for what we perceive as imperfections, weaknesses and mistakes. We even need to forgive the evil done to us. We realize we oppress ourselves with those whom we don’t forgive. Until we finally learn to own our habits of repeating the same dysfunctional or abusive behaviors or relationships, and by owning them find the power to break them, we will be damned to repeat them.
We need to release our blame, resentment, anger, and hatred. Once we finally recognize that we are responsible for determining how we choose to perceive our life, we become free.
