Front and Center

Who are we? Where do we come from?  What is our purpose?  Existential questions we all ask ourselves from time to time in our journey through this life.  Do we need to know where we came from to know where we are going?  Lots of people looking into their ancestry lineage to see if it will help them in their search for meaning. 

The four hands make me thing of four corners of a foundation, that which we build on and the snake and the swirling beads bring to mind DNA and life on the cellular level.  Do we really need to go that far back to figure it out or just turn around and view our parents or maybe just turn around and look at ourselves yesterday or the day before?  And more than that if we are Spirit having a human experience - really all we need to do is to look inward and that is where the real discovery is.
Lots of questions I have asked myself today.  I never wondered that much about my parents, parents, parents, parents.  I have enough to work with when I look in the mirror every morning.

EARTH MAGIC Oracle Cards - Steven D. Farmer

  1. These are beautiful cards. I pulled my mothers genealogy work yesterday, not having kids to pass it on to, I had a flash of brilliance :) I'm going to scan them and upload to the files of the family group on facebook. And then probably toss them in the fire. I really don't care, although I would enjoy the kind of blood test that shows who my ancient ancient ancestors were.

  2. My dad has done a lot of genealogy work too. He has found ancestors of us from around 1600. It doesn't add to my feeling of purpose but I do like to read old documents and stuff about these people.
