Are you tired of waiting for someone to light the bulb above your head? Wait no more because that someone is you… read on…
IX The Hermit:
The Hermit retreats to the highest branches of a magical pomegranate tree to meditate on the Mysteries. Though he prefers his solitude, occasional visitors are welcome—but, like the pomegranates, the Hermit doesn’t offer the fruits of his wisdom easily. There must be some effort involved; the ancient tree of knowledge must be climbed. Alone in his lofty retreat, the Hermit has the perspective to see far and the detachment to come to a calm comprehension of what he observes. Cats who are in the active rush of life’s adventures can’t always see the big picture. The Hermit sees and understands.
The Cat’s Advice:
Step away from the bustle of your daily life and find the inner stillness you need. Don’t expect to understand the deeper meaning of life if you are constantly engaged in activities and busyness. Wisdom requires making time for introspection.
Are you putting things out to The Universe but not getting anything back? Stop what you are doing in the business of your life and take time to smell the roses. If you have to buy yourself a rose as a reminder then do so. You may be thirsty and asking for water but if you don’t plan to have something to put the water in… well why get the water in the first place. Think about what you want and then after putting it out to The Universe… Be still and meditate on it then Go After It! Don’t just go on with your life and wait… as you may have noticed, that isn’t working.
Until next time…
