Light

Daily Draw: Tarot of the Spirit ~ Hermit

In darkness we are our own light.

Easy to forget... If we maintain dark thoughts, if we seek out dark company, if we hone in on dark news we inadvertently create our own depression, our personal end of the world. Both those things can happen all by themselves, they don't need our help to become. Become the opposition, create the light.

 "I would hurl words into this darkness and wait for an echo, and if an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of hunger for life that gnaws in us all." ~ Richard Wright 1908-1960

  1. I wonder what makes us hunger after that darkness instead of the light. What is beneficial that we hope to find there?

  2. This Hermit instead of quiet contemplation seems to rise up and ask "What Say You?"

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
