Flux

Daily Draw: Tarot de Paris ~ 2 of Coins

This version of the 2 of Coins is a good example of the state of earthly flux in which our existence resides. Rise and fall, come and go, yet matter is still there. Burn wood get ash, but the energy of heat is received in exchange.

In a convoluted way, I'm reminded by this card our life is akin to a plastic bag. There is room for jostling but when we put something in we may have to take something out. Our time is not infinite...a new baby might mean no fly fishing for a while. Buy a house, less weekend getaways, home maintenance never ends. Discover the internet and a whole lot of things fall by the wayside. The key is making a choice, being sure our sack is still full of quality life and not an empty bag of lumps and shadows.

"Make your mold. The best flux in the world will not make a usable shape unless you have a mold to pour it in." ~ Robert Collier 1885-1950

  1. I find it hard to make that kind of choice. I try to juggle all the balls at once...and mostly fail. :)
