I crochet. And like most people that crochet, I am addicted to buying yarn. Now, instead of buying new from the store all the time, I like to buy secondhand from thrift shops and Goodwill, things like that. I always have. For one, it’s cheaper. Two? It’s better for the environment if I buy what someone else has already donated. The problem ends up being that I buy way too much and, if I don’t carefully look through the bag that they’re selling, I’ll end up with stuff that I would never use.
Tarot is a very useful tool for those of us who practice the art of divination. If you’re just learning tarot, then this lesson is for you! When we’re learning something new, it takes practice, and the tarot is no different. You should practice as often as possible, get a feel for your cards, get to know their energy and attitude (yes, cards can have an attitude), and start learning the different meanings behind each one.
I constantly suffer from a feeling of homesickness, but why? It doesn’t matter where I am – even if I am at home – I still get the feeling of homesickness in the pit of my stomach. Now, it doesn’t happen every day, but it happens often enough that I used to think something was wrong with me. Ever since I was a child, I’ve felt like this. When I was a kid, I used to wonder what was wrong with me and why I never felt at home. Now as I’ve gotten older, I think I have it figured out. I don’t feel at home at a certain place. My house? Nope, doesn’t matter. Work? Nope, doesn’t matter either. Family’s house? Nope, that doesn’t matter at all. So what gives?
I never realized how much tension I hold in my body until I meditated this morning. I’ve been having issues with my shoulders and neck causing me pain and stiffness – probably because of sitting behind a computer screen most of the day.
We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.
Sometimes, practicing your craft and your faith will require hiding in plain sight. This can be for several reasons, but the most common is safety and professionalism. Now, I’m not talking about kids hiding things from their parents or guardians. That’s a different topic and one I will touch on at a later day. I’m talking about needing to hide your faith for specific job-related reasons, or public related reasons.
