The whip is about discipline. Will today take great mental effort if there may be emotional unhappiness or possibly physical difficulties?
What is ahead for us? Well, it depends upon our thoughts. As we think, we create our reality. Create happy. Create healthy. Create holy. You can use your disciplines to help you create. Co-create with God.
You are loved and blessed.
