The Moonday Night Reading: Surrender (The “Hanged Man”), 8 of Cups, 8 of Swords
I know people who won’t meditate because being with their own thoughts is overwhelming. I know people who can never have a silent moment because they are anxious about what their mind might say. I know people who cannot ever have a moment by themselves because of fear of being alone with their own mind...
I don’t blame them.
Learning to meditate, to be with one’s thoughts, and to be at peace with the mind, is absolutely the most challenging and scary thing in the whole Universe and only the bravest among us truly go down the path of seeking the truth about the realities and experiences that lie within one’s own Soul.
This week, it’s time to take a spiritual leap. Perhaps it’s time to turn the mind upside down, get a different perspective of the world. How long can you meditate while in a headstand?
Or perhaps, it’s time for a silent retreat, just you and the moon. You can leave everything else behind, even for just a day. Do you know any vacant yogi caves, literal or metaphorical?
Beware, it might get messy; the mind likes to fight dirty, it will throw all sorts of things at you to keep you in its grip, but like an old yogi friend of mine likes to say, “If you want to find God, you must cry out for her! No one learns the truth by sitting on cushions.” #conscioussoultarot #moondaynightreading #tarot #weeklyspread #yoga #meditation #yogi #yogini #sirsasana #silence #mind #soul #spirituality
