What we truly care about, are invested in, honor, find sacred, are willing to sacrifice some part of ourselves for, these are the things that benefit us today. Rewards come in a form commensurate with the matter we value; if we find we’re not getting the Love or other payoff we expect from some quarter, then we can be sure we don’t really treat, honor, or care for what we think we do as we think we do. Around you, posers will be exposed, and today’s ‘reveals’ will be an excellent guide determining where and in whom it’s worth investing your own time, energy, money, and faith.

Today’s word image is an individual in your life who is hiding judgmentalism, intolerance, and outright hate behind a banner of enlightenment and ‘right thinking’. It seems to have become a popular sport nowadays, righteously telling others how wrong they are. A particular individual’s behavior brought this to the fore, but it’s true for all of us: if we’re so sure about our rightness that we beat others down when they try to express themselves, belittle, show disdain for, or cut people out of our lives when they disagree, or insist on sharing our opinion loudly and repeatedly to others over and again ‘proving’ our superiority, then what we need isn’t for the world to change to our specifications, but some humility accompanied by a reality check in relation to our own humanity.
