It’s an odd concept, the fact that WE set this life up, and yet we don’t see most of what it brings, come at us. It’s like, we planned it, then we lost the plan. And are relying on ever-diminishing memories to recall what we planned.
At first, that feels defeatingly difficult. But then, we DO remember shit. Not always important bits, but enough fleeting glimpses that we regain our Hope. The attitude of “lost” begins to fade, and we’re back on the highway.
Although, what if there’s construction in our way? The images that I was shown this morning were scene after scene of “roads less taken” views. Dirt tracks, winding pathways, over-grown forested trails, dusty and underused brick boulevards . . . . . .
When we are forced to travel another direction, we are also gifted in finding new view points. Vantages and vistas beyond our regular and usual routes. The sights and perspectives we are presented with, on this divergent path, are blessings.
If we look at them as challenges, then we aren’t learning our lessons. We’re simply fighting the tide. And the traffic.
One way to slow down and enjoy the ride, is what our daily draw brings. Still within our regular rotation, we have this suggestion.
“The Resting Tree ~ 22 ~
patience and stillness
The Resting Tree is a sign for you to stop focusing and planning and be at peace in the moment. This is the representative of nonaction and relaxation. Patience is the key to being with this Ally.
The Resting Tree asks you to slow down, sit back, and watch the roses bloom and the birds feed in the meadow. This isn’t the time to forge ahead in any way. You may not be taking enough breaks, so you’re invited to be still and contemplate your good fortune, even if it means blessing the chaos in your life.
This is a sign to allow everything to fall away except the stillness of the moment; it’s like living within the space between breaths.
When the Resting Tree appears, it signals that you’ve done all you can for now and it’s time to unwind and allow your story to unfold of its own accord. You’ve earned the right to rest and relax.
Amazing ideas will come if you do. Remember the ancient saying, ‘we do without doing and everything gets done.’ “
Reminiscent of our Retreat card, isn’t it?
