Violence

Daily Draw: Chinese Tarot ~ Tower

Ah..the Lightening Goddess blinds the victims and the Cockerel Thunder God stands on drums and beats them with a mallet. Where do these ideas come from?

I'm reminded by this card the ancient ideas probably came from real life...human beings being what we are.

"I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent." ~ Mahatma Gandhi 1869-1948

  1. Myth and magicks always had a basis in the day to day scheme of things. Art imitating Life, or is it, Life imitating Art?

  2. Cockerel thunder God - who knew such a thing existed! Banging the drums ok, bashing people with mallets not good! Wishing you a peaceful Easter Monday.

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
