“Even when we never understand all there is to understand; all we need to understand is that we are all connected and all contribute.“
The King of Gifts is the Universal symbol. Everything is present in verything and contributes to as well as originates from all there is. It is the ultimate connection between inner world and outer truth.
Combined with Gifts the King is a righteous person with highly developed administration skills fueled by a highly developed moral standard.
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 Gifts represent the natural talents and characteristics everyone carries within from the day of birth till the day of passing; giving each and everyone of us our particular and personal traits which enable us, each in our own way to fulfill life’s contract. The catch is however that the rightful owner needs to make them work, again, everyone in their own way. It is for this reason each Gift is personalized. In the game of Tarot, Gifts correspond with Cups, the symbol of immortality.
Characteristics: The Divine Element, Love, Emotion.
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 King is the representative of Thought, which is part of every development. He lives true to his nature and sees beyond certain horizons. The legendary King Arthur sets a perfect example.
