Maybe the lesson comes later, after you have rested in the 4's and gotten the last word in the 5, but the 3 HURTS now!
Well, I think it can be both - both the hurting now, and the enduring knowledge and experience of the heart. I do think these two understandings applies to the card regarding the circumstances for and other cards in the actual reading.
