Deck: Lord of the Rings Oracle

Card: The Eye of Sauron

The Eye of Sauron; the disembodied presence of the most powerful evil entity that still existed in Middle Earth during the Third Age. The Eye is all seeing, and presumed to be all powerful as well. It’s influence had been able to turn even the chief Maiar sent to aid the peoples of Middle Earth, Saruman the White, to darkness and evil.

The fight against the forces of Sauron was often times bleak. We all have moments like this in our lives. At this time, remember the words of Galadriel to the Fellowship when they were first brought before her.

“The quest stands upon the edge of a knife. Stray but a little and it will fail to the ruin of all… Yet hope remains while the company is true.”

You feel like everyone is watching you. Like they are waiting for you to make a mistake, to fail. They might be. It’s entirely possible that people are trying to analyze your every action. However, like the Fellowship in the face of The Eye, do not lose hope. They matter little in the grander scheme, and are only trying to shift focus onto you in order to distract from their own shortcomings and problems. Do not let the fear of mistakes stop you. Yes, you may feel like everything is pushed on you right now. But you’re not alone. You need only ask for help from friends, family, or look into what other resources may be available to you in your situation right now. Form then turn to your Fellowship to aid you. It’s what they are there for.
