In the entertainment business, there is this practice of a “call back” (which is exactly what it sounds like, mentioning something again later, or calling it back). Clearly I am NOT in show biz, but I am your radio.
What I receive, I pass along. So, “call back” is part of what I was made aware of this morning.
Remember the message of gazing back, learning from our past while looking forward and being present? That concept has returned.
We are being reminded. We are being advised. We are being asked to mindfully recall and remember.
While at the same time, lightly peer into the future. As well as stay present.
The picture I saw showed a butterfly, gently landing on a small, sturdy, and unmoving stone in a huge, vast (seemingly endless) food- and flower-filled garden.
As I stood in front of our card altar, I was directed to this draw. The image and symbolism are tremendously similar!
“Slow and Steady ~
‘Slow and steady wins the race.’
Remember the old cliché ‘Slow and steady wins the race?’ This is a time for easy movement, unhurried steps, and a steady heart.
Trust that taking life at a more leisurely pace will give you greater access to your dreams. Slowing down allows more contact with the juicier elements of your life.
Because this one flipped in an ambiguous fashion, we are going to look at both definitions.
Pushing things forward impulsively will not only prevent success, but potentially cause more trouble than you are prepared to handle.
Moving too quickly will only yield unripe fruit with a bitter taste. Slow down. Breathe. Meditate. You’re not a human doing, you are a human being.
Everything will work out if you can apply the brakes and become more aware of what’s happening in this moment. A calm focus on the now, breathing in the beauty of your surroundings, will restore your power to consciously co-create your world.
All fruits ripen in their own time.”
