I use tarot and oracle cards as tools for reflection and contemplation. Rather than divining the future, they are a way for me to look more deeply at the "now."

Less Traveled Path

From the Sheridan Douglas Tarot, Judgment; from the Pages of Shustah, the Path:
Some wake-up calls can radically change the path you're on.
 Sometimes it takes a wake-up call, doesn't it, to alert us to the fact that we're hurrying through our lives instead of actually living them; that we're living the fast life instead of the good life. 
~ Carl Honore

  1. Thank you for this Bev. I good thought to contemplete first thing in the morning!One of my very favourite poets, Robert Frost describing 'the road less traveled' and Scott Peck's wonderful book that takes it's title from the poem. It's a courageous thing to do but truly makes all the difference in enjoying the journey.

    My late husband so loved Henry David Thoreau and his poem which I have on my wall in my front porch that I see on my way out and coming back home.
    I see these two quotes as being so similar and a great guide along our path.

    " If a man does not keep pace with his companions perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.
    Let him step to the music he hears
    however measured or far away."
