Dormant

Daily Draw: Navigators of the Mystic Sea ~ 9 of Swords

Ahh...my companion this month, the dreaded 9 of Swords. My eye is drawn to the bracketing root system with nothing showing at the surface, and the frog, a Western symbol of life-style changes.

I'm reminded by this card that sometimes any companion is better than no companion, and that I am in the place I am by choice. My cycle will change later and the dormant roots of a life placed on hold will once again produce new shoots.

"A man who has never lost himself in a cause bigger than himself has missed one of life's mountaintop experiences. Only in losing himself does he find himself. Only then does he discover all the latent strengths he never knew he had and which otherwise would have remained dormant." ~ Richard M. Nixon 1913-1994

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
