“…anyone who seeks total Enlightenment should discard not only all conceptions of their own selfhood, of other selves, or of a universal self, but they should also discard all notions of the non-existence of such concepts.”
“When the Buddha explains these things using such concepts and ideas, people should remember the unreality of all such concepts and ideas. They should recall that in teaching spiritual truths the Buddha always uses these concepts and ideas in the way that a raft is used to cross a river. Once the river has been crossed over, the raft is of no more use, and should be discarded. These arbitrary concepts and ideas about spiritual things need to be explained to us as we seek to attain Enlightenment. However, ultimately these arbitrary conceptions can be discarded.”–From the Diamond Sutra Chapter 6
Allow the truth to percolate into your awareness, without thought, without trying, without seeking. Everything and nothing is–an observation–no thought.
At this moment the Moon has just moved into Virgo (rational processing) and is exactly 150 degrees (aspect that requires one to view them self, the world from the big picture) from the Sun (conscious self) and in opposition to the Black Moon Lilith (our point of empowerment). We are provided with a window of time, now, in which to detach from the ego or all the negative patterns of thought which may inform us endlessly. Step into an evolved presence–free to choose, to share, to love, to shine! And what, when that moment passes? Have I missed my opportunity? No, that moment exists now and now and–now!
Cards for January 21st–January 28th
This card has a familar feeling to it. It is a 12=3 our ability to create here, in the physical realm though we may feel as though we don’t know–we do! Use your wisdom, have faith in your self and don’t pretend you don’t know! What? That you are spirit with the ability to manifest as you choose in physical reality–and, oops! we do in every moment!
Ah, the Ace of Swords, you have listened! You have let go of limiting thought patterns, you recognize the truth and you are free to express your self in a new way! One that utilizes the higher self, the one through whom is channeled divine wisdom.
There is no time better than the present to get down off the cross, give your self credit for a mind capable of anything and everything, commit to a goal or purpose no matter how simple and achieve your vision. The sum of our cards is 12 + 1 + 8= 21=3, again the number of creativity!
