Our teachers (in life) come in many forms. A teacher can spring into our lives from any corner at any time, and if we’re open we can receive teachings from many sources.
Buddhist proverb: When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.
Our guides show up in unlikely ways and places. To recognize them, we must simply be teachable, and stay receptive.
Today’s meditation was ten minutes long, and focused on releasing resistance so that we may learn the life lessons that are given to us.
Often, when opportunities to learn and grow come along, we have a habit of resisting and fighting against change. This inclination casts these learning opportunities and lessons in a bad light because they remove us out of our comfort zone.
The meditation today focused on learning to go with the flow of these moments and looking forward to where they might take us instead of resisting the flowing river and stubbornly fighting against the current.
Two of Wands – Making plans and plotting a course is allowed, and in fact, encouraged. Lately in life it’s felt like whenever plans are made, they’re dashed onto the rocks of chaos, but don’t let that keep you from making those plans.
By plotting a course, you keep yourself in a constant state of movement and progress, even when setbacks happen or the winds of change blow through and cause you to need to adapt or abandon those plans for new ones. The activity is not fruitless, even if it seems sometimes like it might be.

Today’s meditation was ten minutes long, but I can’t for the life of me remember what it was about. It had something to do with the living in the present moment, but I just don’t remember.
Wheel of Fortune – Life is a roller-coaster, and that’s what this card is all about. We have ups and we have downs. Sometimes things feel like they are moving too fast, and at other times slow enough we can finally catch a bit of breath. The reminder here is that when those times come when things allow you to breathe? DO IT. Don’t take those moments for granted, for everything is temporary, and we need to savor the good when it’s accessible for us to do so.

There was no meditation today.
Six of Pentacles – Unlike the scales in the justice card, these scales are all about the haves and the have nots. This card is about generosity, charity, and evening the playing field between the fortunate and those that need help. It asks us… what can we do to help those less fortunate to us? And how can we be open to help from others when we need it, instead of allowing our pride to get in the way?
