Action = Consequences

Daily Draw: Mythic Tarot ~ King of Coins

King Midas, who else? Being granted one wish by Dionysos he said, "grant that all I touch turn to gold". As you can imagine, that didn't work out to well. He got a do-over though, by bathing in the River Pactolus he was able to wash away the wish.

I'm reminded by this card, it is seldom we get a do-over in the real game of life. Living with the consequences of our actions is what we do, day in and out. We did it, we got it.

"Midas's Law: Possession diminishes perception of value, immediately." ~ John Updike 1932

  1. Most of the time the longing for something is more exciting than the obtaining of the object of our desires :)

  2. Ain't it the truth. The search is part of the fun! Maybe the best part.

  3. That's like planning and anticipating a trip. :) Sometimes the reality is not nearly as fun as the fantasy.

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