listen

Listen. Are you breathing just a little and calling it a life?
~ Mary Oliver
It's a thing we humans do, scurrying around frantically between tasks and interactions, finding time for the Little Breathers. Life isn't the scurry. The High Priestess has little interest in any of that nonsense. She has a knowing that Life happens in the In Between and how that space feeds the soul. It is her recommendation, and a high one at that, you stop for more than a moment and Listen (yes, with a capital 'L'). Because it is here you may find the greatest gifts, ideas, peace, expression ~ whatever it is that you perceive as lacking at this time. It isn't that any of these things aren't there. They are. It is all waiting for you to stop and notice.

So.

Stop. Listen. Breathe deep a life full of possibilities. Try to give yourself more than a moment. The task of the High Priestess is in simply Being. This might not be a day to scurry about. In fact, it may not work at all in your favor to do so. The High Priestess waits patiently and then moves forward with a certain knowing. Even then, she won't move too quickly. There really isn't any reason to rush. What's meant for you will always be there waiting.
