FOUNDATION: Two of Cups (reversed)
Dreams of harmonic convergence, of hearts shining with one light, guide this week’s message. While we have each found some truth to light our way, the coming together of disparate viewpoints has not yet materialized. A dream it remains. However, it is not a dream to be abandoned. Even if the sides of the argument seem never to find validation in the eyes of the other, deep inside the heart where the truth is carried, a singularity shines bright. At the base of every viewpoint is a cognizance of primal humanity… not as savage but as divine. In truth, it is love that forms the foundation of every spark of life, for that is the common ground in which all realities converge. If that sounds like a platitude, then it is in keeping with the week’s foundational setting. Right now, it may indeed be impossible for incoherence to find its base harmonic. If you find yourself confronting this impossibility as a stark reality, perhaps it’s a good time to step back and remind yourself that oneness is not in amalgamation but in concord. Each approaches the light in a unique way. None is wrong when the force of truth melts the shadows that hide wisdom’s covalent recognition.
LODESTONE: Six of Cups
It is more natural for humans to love than to fight, when the revelations of self-knowledge strip away the grown-up notions that come packaged in a dying culture. When the focus is on life, on nurturance, and on home, civility is known as love. In this moment, are you aware of your inner nature wherein the ever-rejuvenated soul is giving you hints? Can you pause from the busy-ness of your reality pressed upon you and listen to the soul’s silent smile? Stop and smell the flowers. Notice what new life is forming at your fingertips, right below your nose, exactly within your grasp. It may mean taking a step or two down from the high place you find yourself in, but if you want a taste of the joy that this moment offers, let that happen. Before the wall that’s been built behind your back, while you weren’t looking, rises any higher, redefine it. Make it a place of life. Let it frame your vision of home, and of a future worth remembering. When you step out of the role you have been playing while adulting, make new contact with the child. With all the outer creations of life’s senselessness forgotten, the eternal Self makes itself known. This is the way home.

While you may really want to look at the future landscape in the days ahead, bombastic energies are beckoning your attention. It’s interfering with your placid good feeling of a rose-tinted sky, you say. Yes, if that is where you want to train your eyes, it may seem that way. However, while the shift is happening and the landscape is going through a change of season, it may be best to go through a shift of focus yourself. Let your attention embrace what’s coming. If you do, you may notice some patterns; you may see that everything is sourcing from the same general point. Don’t worry. Your rosy future is not about to be obliterated. While matters at hand have your attention, do something dramatic and look at the details as they move into view. This is about your empowerment. The weeks ahead are going to be fertile ground for what happens now to take on the force of life. Cycles are about to be broken. Watch carefully. The next couple of months will have much to reveal that’s rooted in this moment.
