06/02/18 - Chopping Wood

6 February 2018


In light of recent posts around bringing your goals and desires to fruition, there are two ways that today's card from Wisdom of the Oracle might be interpreted. 

First, it’s a friendly reminder not to get so sidetracked by your new ideas that you neglect existing responsibilities. Also that achievement of your goal also won't be 'The End', just another point on the journey. There's a Zen proverb which says it perfectly:
Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.
Secondly, the card is a reminder that wishes alone are not sufficient. You can raise your vibes and put your desires over to the universe, but it’s also important to do the groundwork. Are there mundane tasks that will enable you to achieve what it is that you want? If so, get on with them! 

It’s often during the time that we engage in ordinary activities (like showering, driving, walking the dog) that we are struck by inspiration, ideas, and solutions we’ve been looking for. 

What are you waiting for?
