to fly toward a secret sky,
to cause a hundred veils
to fall each moment.
First, to let go of life.
Finally, to take a step
Fill my heart with Love,
that my every teardrop
may become a star.
Hazrat Inayat Khan
This week we draw wisdom from Isha Lerner's Triple Goddess Tarot.
This stage of initiation entails dedication and commitment, for the tasks involved are some of the most difficult to comprehend for the human soul.
The individual must seek to embrace the essence of love within and avoid the temptation to seek it elsewhere.
The beloved with whom we choose to share our intimate life is but a reflection of our own loving nature.
To the extent we seek love outside ourselves, we meet with disillusionment and disappointment.
Imagine for a moment that love has two dimensions: the horizontal, confined and enclosed by time and space; and the vertical, representing the infinite, eternal link with spirit.
Human love often gets caught up in the horizontal zone, fostering the desire to own, possess, and control one’s “love object.” Such strategies, motivated by fear, are doomed to fail.
Aphrodite offers love to humanity from the vertical plane; her touch encasing us in an orb of shimmering joy.
Find more time to care for your body, your hair, your attire and your environment.
It is a very good practice to stand up with arms reaching toward the heavens in the shape of a chalice.
Imagine you are being filled with the elixir of divine love.
Let the radiant light of Aphrodite pour into your heart.
You will find that people cannot resist you, for the joy that emanates from your loving demeanor is both healing and contagious.
Light a candle in your home symbolising the purity of love you wish to share with the world.
How do you dare to be the rapturous beauty
that lives within your heart?--------------------------------------------
