Indulge the Senses

For the next few months, I will choose a card from the African American Tarot deck as a prompt for my blog posts. Let’s see what spiritual insight I come up with!

The Sun + Ace of Chalices + The Hanged Man

As I write this my birthday is approaching. Birthdays always present a paradox for me. I am excited to be approaching another year of life (god-willing). Yet, I am disappointed that I am not where I thought I would be by this age. Each year around this time I experience a sense of joy and mourning.

A year is passing away while another is coming into fruition. And so the cards have fallen with this message. Encouraging you, encouraging me to play, to get out and have fun. Life is not meant to be lived without enjoyment of the senses. The human experience offers us opportunities to smell sweet scents, to tantilize tastebuds, to touch and be touched, to hear beautiful melodies, to see the beauty of creation.

What a waste to squander this gift. Joy and indulgence of the senses injects a fresh sense of well being into the human experience. It flows into our lives and leaves behind a refreshed emotional landscape. In the place of stress, sadness, and striving we find peace.   

This week’s message invites us to stop and smell the roses. Stop fighting and wishing things were different. Be still and see with the eyes of the heart. The eye which sees the truth, the truth that you are well. Now, get out and have some fun!!!
