Dorothy

I went to the library the other day and started reading a book last night by Denis Linn.  It was published in 1995 and titled, SACRED SPACE, so this morning reaching for a deck to work this week, the obvious choice was the SACRED SITES TAROT.  This ten of pentacles focus is on the City of Cibola, the myth of the seven cities of gold, precious stones, and esoteric knowledge. 

This appears to be the queen of pentacles out about and I can tell she does not want to climb those stairs.  In fact I think I heard her say "I am the Queen, and I don't have to do stairs."
We can search the world over to find the treasures that we lament that should be ours, be even then we won't be satisfied.  The sacred space or scared site is really within us.  The rest is fluff.
So today I am going to hang out in my sacred space and forget the stairs, the work, the endless pursuit of more and just relax and read my book

  1. Your post about looking within rather than without reminds me of a quote by Chogyam Trungpa about spiritual materialism:

    "There are numerous sidetracks which lead to a distorted, ego-centered version of spirituality; we can deceive ourselves into thinking we are developing spiritually when instead we are strengthening our egocentricity through spiritual techniques."

  2. It is so easy to complicate our life. Reading is enriching the one life we have.

    1. These many years later I realized that I should have been a book editor, that way I could have been paid for what I truly enjoy doing.

  3. It so easy to fall in the trap of craving for more and more stuff and forget we already have everything to be happy and content.

    1. In this book, Sacred Space by Denise Linn, one of the first things one should do is clean up their homes of so much accumulated stuff.
