There’s a saying in the Christian mythos about “mysterious ways” in which the Universe works. From my standpoint, as a practicing pagan, I have to partially agree.
Often it feels as if life is happening TO US, instead of us living our life. There seems to be only so much we can do about that. Some of these decisions and situations we certainly sat down and mapped out.
Others? Well, those we look to Destiny, and the free will of all who are involved as the answer (and the blame).
Our message right now, and where our focus has to be, is as close to a cliché as I can tolerate. Problem is, it’s true, and important.
Possibly where we are and who we’re talking to is really the most perfect solution. The future is malleable.
The future is also our current reality when we arrive there. Just as this moment now, is our truth. Soon, today will be behind us.
Let’s make each second count. Let’s recognize those blessings and mysterious turns as the gifts that they are. As we appreciate where we’ve been, honoring the place we sit now, while resting our eyes every so gently on where we may go next.
The validation for this one is perfection. (Again with the old adages, but ya know, maybe that, too, is part of our lesson.)
“Slow and Steady ~ 12
‘Slow and steady wins the race.’
This is the 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. Savor them.”
The Enchanted Map Oracle Cards by Colette Baron-Reid
has no pictures. But I’m sure you can imagine a towering stack of boxes in every room of a tiny house, some empty now, some still packed full, and a few with contents spilling out.
That’s our current condition. Definite progress, but, as the card says, it’s slow.
