35,000 Years To Get It Right

Daily Draw: Ananda Tarot ~ King of Coins/Spheres

Spirit and matter combine to create the groundwork for the conditions of earthly existence. (Ananda Kurt Pilz) Isn't that nice wordsmithing? This makes me think of a new moon and the light in a refrigerator and a tree falling in the forest. Are they real if we can't see or hear them?

I'm reminded by this card, and this protector and keeper King, of the age of earth (4.5 billion years), of the earliest known humanoid (1.6 billion years), of the earliest known homo sapiens (330,000 years), of man with culture (writing, music, art) 35,000 years. That is a long time trying to get it right...and there is still a huge gap between real and ideal. Are we that poor pickers of Kings? Or are we poor followers? Both apparently.

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
