This morning I woke up with clear direction, very specific instructions. It’s time for us to return to the regular rotation around our card altar. And, that this would be our main focus today.
When I realized which deck was up next and what the message was about, it made perfect sense.
“You just look around, look into the eyes of a child, or into the eyes of your beloved, your mother, your best friend – or just feel a tree.
Have you ever hugged a tree? Hug a tree, and one day you will come to know that it is not only that you have hugged the tree but that the tree also responds, the tree also hugs you.
Then for the first time you will be able to know that the tree is not just the form, it is not just a certain species the botanists talk about, it is an unknown god – so green in your courtyard, so full of flowers in your garden, so close to you, beckoning you, calling you again and again.”
This is JUST what we’ve been discussing with our messages of relationships and being more than our physical shells.
“Experiencing ~ 3 ~ Fire: Action
An ‘experience’ is something that can be filed away in a notebook, or captured on film and pasted into an album.
‘Experiencing’ is the feeling of wonder itself, the thrill of communion, the gentle touch of our connectedness with all that surrounds us.
The woman in this illustration is not just touching the tree, she is in communion with it, she has almost become one with it.
It is an old tree, and has seen many hard times. Her touch is gentle, reverent, and the white on the inside of her cape reflects the purity of her heart. She is humble, simple – and that is the right way to approach nature.
Nature doesn’t bang any drum when it bursts forth into flower, nor play any dirges when the trees let go of their leaves in the fall. But when we approach her in the right spirit, she has many secrets to share.
If you haven’t heard nature whispering to you lately, now is a good time to give her the opportunity.”
