It's A Stretch

Daily Draw: Runic Tarot ~ Enterprise

At the bottom of the tower we see the naysayer. Nothing will convince him that change doesn't equal doom. On the first level we see the backslider. He is too frightened of success to continue on, he'd rather go back down the ladder to safety...and obscurity. The third figure though, he's figured out if you get close enough you don't need the help of the ladder, you are the ladder.

I'm reminded by this card, from the bottom the reward is one dimensional and relatively small because we can't grasp the concept of how many ways our life will be touched and enriched...not by the grasping of, but by the effort for. Whenever we stretch ourselves we become More.

"Success is dependent on effort." ~ Sophocles 495-405 BC

  1. And sometimes that "More" is better than anything we could have imagined... Willingness is the key that opens many doors.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from anyone with a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
