Peace in Preparation

Daily Draw: New Earth Tarot ~ 4 of Swords

Rather than resting on his coffin lid our figure is peacefully working in an organized manner.

I'm reminded by this card to wonder how much our need for peace and rest is self-caused. If a big job is at hand and we have to keep running off for material and tools we forgot. If traveling we keep needing something we forgot at home.  If studying we find ourselves sidetracked by all manner of diversions.

"If our condition were truly happy, we would not seek diversion from it in order to make ourselves happy." ~ Blaise Pascal 1623-1662

  3. Maybe we are so focused on the result we want, we forget some of the necessary steps to get there. :)

    1. I told a friend a few days ago that Every step in making a quilt is the most important one. She was in such a hurry to make a beginners masterpiece she avoided the steps and then couldn't figure out where she went wrong. Same with any job
