“Healing yourself, heals those around you. We’re all apples in the same basket. Stay away from telling other apples how to run their lives. Run your own instead.“
The Knight of Challenges defends the right to a life of its own and fights the dragons that appear in it.
The Knight combined with Challenges applies what he has accumulated through his I–consciousness. He knows what he’s worth, what he stands for and will convey these convictions in daily life in a morally responsible fashion.
The 'Nan Yar - Who Am I' card game for personal development includes four colors - or groups - of fourteen cards each. We know these colors from normal card games and the Tarot game as well. The colors represent the Challenges, Insights, Gifts and Tools that everyone has in his or her life. Besides the colors, the game has 21 Trump Cards, or Archetypes, that each have their own Challenge, Insight, Gift or Tool.
The Challenges reflect the incentives every human being encounters on its path that force that person to come into action and create its own life, true to its core. It is the development of the I-consciousness, the nucleus of who you really are, that is at play here, as opposed to the masks people tend to wear in certain situations. Challenges are void of any pretence or make belief. They are so to speak: the real thing, that travels with its rightful owner no matter where that owner goes. It’s the thing one cant hide from or escape. In the game of Tarot, Challenges coincide with Swords.
Characteristic: Re-birth, Eternity.
The Court Cards (Page, Knight, Queen and King) of each color series have their own rank with which they influence reality on soul level.
We all carry characteristics of the court cards within us. Just as humanity as a whole evolves in the course of existence, overcoming new challenges, acquiring new insights, ultimately getting the chance to improve the quality of life with the available tools; each and every one of us, individually, gets a chance to ‘improve’ during a lifetime. In the course of life, we acquire deeper insights that supersede our basic skills. These insights develop within our core, within our soul, adding to the ‘common’ properties of a being human.
The Knight is the performer. Where the Page is the student, the Knight has the job, the assignment, the mission. The Knight will do whatever is required to do something, at the same time protecting his honor and that of others, without exaggerating or underachieving.
