It is raining. Perfect weather for dipping into Tarot wisdom :)

What is the reality and what is an illusion? The choices you think you have might not be the choices you will have to make. A mind opening idea seems so close but it is hidden behind the thick cloud veil - behind dreams, aspirations, fears… the only way to get an answer is to clear your consciousness, to forget what you think you know, to be free and wait for the wisdom to strike you.
The hawk symbol is believed to represent a bringer of messages and warnings of change. http://bit.ly/ZhUVlQ
I had to reblog this, especially because hawk has become an important part of my life… well spiritual life, I guess :) that’s why My blog is called “Spirit Astore”… I’m still not sure why, in my vision several years ago, I heard “Astore” when I tried to figure out who’s my spiritual guide/ animal. Astore is an Italian word for Goshhawk, and I’m not even Italian :) nowadays, if I seek reassurance, hawks are always fly above me… not the goshhawks though, that would be weird considering that I’m not in Europe :) whether it’s just games of my mind or not - still fascinating :)
As long as there is one upright man, as long as there is one compassionate woman, the contagion may spread and the scene is not desolate. Hope is the thing that is left to us, in a bad time. I shall get up Sunday morning and wind the clock, as a contribution to order and steadfastness.
Sailors have an expression about the weather: they say, the weather is a great bluffer. I guess the same is true of our human society — things can look dark, then a break shows in the clouds, and all is changed, sometimes rather suddenly. It is quite obvious that the human race has made a queer mess of life on this planet. But as a people we probably harbor seeds of goodness that have lain for a long time waiting to sprout when the conditions are right. Man’s curiosity, his relentlessness, his inventiveness, his ingenuity have led him into deep trouble. We can only hope that these same traits will enable him to claw his way out.
Hang on to your hat. Hang on to your hope. And wind the clock, for tomorrow is another day.
When you are on the Path of Silence.
Your heart guides you.
And your mind paves the way.
They work together, as companions.
When you are on the Path of Ego.
Your inflated mind guides you.
And your heart becomes its slave.
Somehow we have learned that judging is easier than being compassionate. Somehow we have learned that being afraid is easier than being bold, and blaming is easier than accepting the peace…
Ironically, this easier way is what causes us the most stress and despair every day.
