Knight of Swords

 
this morning i drew two cards in reversal… 
i drew a third to illuminate the block:
“(S)He needs to look deeply to reconcile that which seems polarized”
aka: work.

if/then

1. the world expands and contracts
in direct proportion
to my consideration of it

2. right now:
i would like to be
a dog

3.

4. if everything is everything
then nothing is nothing

3. or Out walking the dogs in the afternoon

i am remembering your familiarity
your voice
sweet
and turning names into diminutives
your smiling
eyes
crinkled at the corners

there are always obstacles
and i know there is no other world than this
but so for now i am remembering your familiarity
your voice sweet and
turning names into diminutives
your smiling eyes crinkled
at the corners

i dont know the name for them
so i call them clematis
and wonder why to be shameless
is to be any other thing
than those flowers
pouring down as though from heaven
and surrounded by more shamelessness
offered up in tiny cups of california poppy

i look down at my feet
and watch them trailing the dogs feet
and as we walk towards our home
i am remembering your familiarity
your sweet voice
making diminutives out of names
and the crinkling corners of your eyes
as you smile

as per my horoscope, i am asked to practice the loving kindness meditation daily. i offer it to you.
start by taking a few moments to breath…be comfortable. you may lay down or sit, you may curl up or stand. visualize someone you love very much and hold them to you, repeat 3 times “may you be happy, may you be healthy, may you be safe, may you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering”
visualize someone neutral, someone you don’t know and hold them to you, repeat the mantra 3 times.
visualize someone with whom you experience a great deal of challenge and hold them to you, repeat the mantra 3 times.
hold yourself close in your heart and mind, feel the reverberations throughout your body as you say the mantra to yourself 3 times.
