These two cards I pulled are the perfect pairing,

especially with which to end this series.

The number ‘8’

is also an auspicious number

of spirituality & eternity.

Go forth & prosper. <3

Words for the day

grabbed in a clump

overturned

one by one.

I will not subject them 

to the constraints

of sentence structure.  :)

I’ll leave that to each individual

as they see

fit.

When one is at Peace

Spontaneity flows freely.

The Creative force feeds on such Illumination

of our being

with its expression.

Purification is not a Peaceful state

such Peace is the result

& reward thereof.

Blessings to all

who are in the fires

may you soon find yourself

 to be a glorious Phoenix rising

from the ashes.

It seems here that we’re being given advice

on how to deal

with unexpected happenings

out of our control.

A shift in perspective

may be called for & exercised. 

When we can approach our life

with Humour,

we can also see the Beauty

of our own reality.

This, in turn, allows us to relax

into being

Flexible & Patient

with ourselves

& others.

I often say,

“Gravity needs Levity”

& vice-versa.
