That's because we were seperated at birth!

You'd never know it because Harry got all the looks and talent.

Ironically, I ended up with all the body hair.


I have body hair Johnny, I just wax everyday. My good looks are due to all the Avon I stole from my mother as a teenager.

If there's one thing I can relate to, it's taking chances without guarantees of any success, even if it takes years of failure.

And I'm not lamenting the loss of anything.

So, #1 for the win.

It certainly meshes with the previous card about being open to opportunities and exercising ( all ) the senses.

It's good that you can see and recognize the patterns of the cards over the course of time. That's more important than many understand.

I'm very susceptible to patterns. Have been for many years, ever since I began the practice of dream interpretation.

So much so that I consider it a sense in itself that helps me read between the lines of what appears to be going on the surface.

It also comes into play in grasping metaphors and symbolism when I analyze poetry for personal understanding and providing critique.

This is great,  thank you.
I awoke this morning with a sense  of change
I have been preparing myself for a 180° turn
in my life
Things are definitely moving for this girl

I feel a purpose driven renewal, I pray for the ability to  cast aside any  judgemental opinion regarding someone i struggle with
I will  be the channel for an awakening for them
An example of how to "care"  
To be made available as a spiritual hand of guidance and security for their big step
This has been my purpose all along.
Hurt feelings get in the way and I want to throw my hands in the air and run.

How can I speak of love enlightenment and rebirth and leave them behind
Who am I to say "they will never get it"
It's about love not a romantic love a spiritual love that promotes concern for a lost spirit
Whew
Preparation through meditation
Much Love V

When the Buddha attained enlightenment at the foot of the Bodhi tree, he was a human being, and after his enlightenment, he was still a human being, with all the suffering and afflictions that having a human body entails. The Buddha was not made of stone. He experienced feelings and emotions, pain, cold, hunger, and fatigue, just like all of us. We shouldn’t think that because we experience the suffering and afflictions of being human, we cannot touch peace, we cannot touch nirvana. Even after his enlightenment, the Buddha experienced suffering. From his teachings and stories about his life, we know that he suffered. But the key point is that he knew how to suffer. His awakening came from suffering: he knew how to make good use of his afflictions in order to experience awakening. And because of this, he suffered much less than most of us.

Good morning! Hope everyone is well this Wednesday! It's overcast, cool, and soon-to-be drizzly here.

Today's cards are from Colette Baron-Reid's Wisdom of the Oracle deck. Select one of the three piles and let me know in the comments, or just keep it to yourself! I'll share the answers soon!

Thich is one of my favorite Zen teachers...he keeps things wonderfully simple and expresses reality in ordinary terms. he is quite ill at the moment...preparing to be recycled.
Wonderul post A.
