09/29/20: Attitude of Gratitude – more important than breakfast!

((The Lightseer’s Tarot by Chris Anne AND Wisdom of the Oracle by Colette Baron-Reid))  

People feel discontented; the year is running the last length of the track, and as so many have said, “What do we have to show for it?” Personally, I cannot relate to this attitude – every day above ground is a good day in my book. If you cannot find reasons to be grateful, you must not be looking at anything at all because if you were, you would see things. More on that later.

And now, to the cards! 

 THEME: ALL THAT GLITTERS. Beware of Fool’s Gold. Just because it is shiny, does not mean you want it. Just because it is expensive does not mean it is worth it.

INFLUENCE: Four of Cups. Do not create your own discontent with expectation and attachment. Do not attempt to resolve temporary disappointments with permanent solutions (you do not want to limit future options).

INFLUENCE: Four of Pentacles. Mind your resources; be generous with your time, be careful with your money.

STRATEGY: Ten of Swords. THANK GOODNESS THAT’S OVER! Time to move on to the next thing.

We have forgotten to be grateful for many things:

Indoor plumbing.

— Every breath of air.

— Every beat of your heart.

— Being young.

— Growing old.

BLESSINGS! BLESSINGS! BLESSINGS! We take too much for granted.

Are things perfect? Of course not.

Is there room for improvement? Always.

Should we be striving to make things better. Yes – every little bit helps.

Should we trample everyone else to get where we are going? No; your goals should include a lack of casualties.

(NOTE: I am not saying “and harm none” because a) I’m not sure that is always possible, and b) The Universe knows what it is doing in terms of greater good, and does not take its marching orders from me. However, intention does in fact matter – and it matters a great deal, despite what lawyers like to say.)

Lead with an attitude of gratitude, and you there will be plenty for which you are grateful.
