Pay Attention

Image from the Limited Edition Gaian Tarot by Joanna Powell Colbert (2004)

Philosphers such as Eckhart Tolle suggest that it is most important that we live in the now, and that we pay close attention to where we are and what is going on. In other words, to experience the present moment in a meaningful manner.

I just fnished sorting my books – some to keep, some to rehome. My next project is to sort my divination/meditation decks. I walked back into my guest room, where all of this is stored, this aftrnoon. I stood for a moment looking out the window (which faces the street), then I picked up a couple of my decks to look at.

One deck in particular struck a chord with me, and brought back some very pleasant memories. The image above is from the Limited Edition Gaian Tarot by my friend Joanna Powell Colbert. This deck came out in 2004 (time does fly!). I was blessed with the opportunity, along with many other people, to follow the progress of this deck. It ws an exciting time, and Joanna is someone who is very gracious with her sharing of her progress.

I chose the card The Teacher deliberately to accompany this post. The energy is that of a very humble spiritual person who carries the ability to teach others through laughter and the ability to access the realm of the ridiculous.

What do you find when you pay atention to your day?
