The drum asks us to examine our own body to ascertain if we are moving and living to a natural rhythm or underutilizing or forcing ourselves into a physical lifestyle that neither aids nor enhances. Do we say "I'm trying to get fit", or "I'm trying to lose some weight" or "I'm trying to drink more water"? Or are we doing these things.
I'm reminded by this card trying and doing are worlds apart, and who are we fooling while we try...no one, our body and lifestyle and our actions show our intent.
"A fool is like the big drum that beats fast but does not realize its hollowness" Malayan proverb
Tarot opened previously closed doors to my own heart with it's merciless quest for the truth, nothing but the truth. They flay the soul and make me say thank you afterward. Each hour spent with my cards is a new lesson to be learned. Viva la Journey.
