Card #304 – Strings Attached

Cats and people are among the social mammals, but being part of the social matrix means submitting to social conditioning and often letting others pull your strings. But we are not merely the victims of the social matrix, we are also the perpetrators of it as well. Others may attach strings to us, and we may attach strings to others. When we do things for others in the expectation of what they will do in return for us, we may be attaching strings. When we expect people to act in particular ways that serve our purposes we may be confusing them with puppets.

Consider this is a propitious time to recognize the strings that are attached to you and/or or by you in particular relationships and the social matrix in general. We need to accept that we are social mammals without being ruled by that aspect of our nature.
