Prolonging Happiness

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Ravyness Drakon TarotToday’s draw is the Nine of Cups, which is traditionally a representation of themes that have to do with contentment, accomplishment, and satisfaction in the area of one’s emotions, relationships, creativity, and intuition.

Look at that big ass cup that the dragon drinks from in this card. Is it no wonder that the dragon is content and satiated?  And yet, still more await the dragon in the background… a promise of still more goodness to come, and assurance that the satisfaction they feel is not a fluke.

This Nine of Cups is a reminder that not all happiness is fleeting.  Sometimes, when you find that perfect fit, it can be prolonged and build upon into something even better, if you’re willing to make yourself at home with the idea that happiness is allowed… and doesn’t have to be something you chase after or a temporary state.


Daily Self Kindness

I treated myself to the next three books in the series I’m listening to on audiobook at the moment. The story in my ear helps me to focus on the work in my hands, and I’d just finished the last set of nine, so it was time for more.
