For today I've drawn the Ace of Cups from the Original Rider Waite tarot. A perfect card for anyone who wants to revive their Self love practice. Yesterday, Catherine from AppleRiver Tarot Readings commented the following on my post about The Lovers:
“we need to love ourselves the way the Creator loves us, and that is with kindness, and mercy and with great compassion. “
This really resonated with me on such a deep level.
Then this morning I pulled this Ace of Cups. A hand from the Clouds is offering us Love in the most pure and selfless form. Without restraint or expectations: just as a generous gift, to accept and to cherish. I am certain it is the hand of the Creator depicted here. The ultimate Divine source. Maybe it is about time I stopped trying to do everything myself and keeping my ego busy and occupied. I am even trying to find enough remnants of love within me to give to myself. Instead, maybe it is time to turn to the One who is always there for us, whatever we chose to call or however we to choose to see the Divine. The only thing that matters here and now is that I believe this love is given to me freely and that I am willing put my ego aside and receive this beautiful gift.
