The draw for the day.
Magical Path – Balance, 14 – Another major arcana card and this one speaks of REALLY focusing on the balance between action and inaction, yin and yang, giving and receiving
Physical Path – Listening – It’s time to really listen to the world around you and to what people are saying. Listen quietly and refrain from adding your opinion. Learn from listening. This is a perfect card for today and I’ll explain more as to why in the update.
Update – The Balance card was spot on today. All day required a very intricate balance of knowing when to give and take, when to share and when to, well, Listen. More on that in a second in the physical card. A lot of things came together for me today and because of this card I was very focused on watching the balance of the energies around me.
Listening. How perfect. You see, my wife and I are in an art show together. We’re working on a collaborative piece that will be on display at the local University art gallery. It’s a complicated and spiritual piece which involves collecting people’s personal stories and accounts and then creating an audioscape as a backdrop to the piece. My part within it is that I am the audio engineer and I’m collecting the stories. Guess what I was slated to do all day today as friends came over to record their stories? Yeah. I was listening. I was the chief Listener to be sure and, more importantly, I was being entrusted with safeguarding these amazing, moving experiences onto a recorded medium.
