The Wildwood wishes to address the real question, the true heart of the matter, not what I want to address, it’s what I need to address. Oh boy!
I’ve been feeling quietly rebellious these last few days, since my last post. I’ve a to-do list for my business as long as my arm, my to-do list for the house and home is longer and like Pru from an episode of Charmed, I need more than two of me! The thing is, where to start on both fronts?!
As far as the house and its chores are concerned, I’ve started / continued last years project of finishing off the decorating in the office. That can then help me get organised with the business and give me a dedicated area from which to work when the eldest two are at school and the baby is asleep.
Is this enough? I ask the Tarot. The World Tree came out in answer and I then pulled a context card from 1000 Spreads and pulled the “Question” card. Is it enough? is the question I want answered, but it’s not the one I need answering. What then is the question I need answering? That took me a few moments to work out.
What I need to know (be reminded of) is that no matter which way I go around the labyrinth of life, I’ll get to where I need to be. Either way will take me there, I just have to keep going, start doing (elephant task!) and live my life. Is it the right way, did I make the right choice? What if the other way is quicker?
The fact is, it’s not about how quickly we get out of the house that is in the base of the Great Oak Tree, or even how quickly we get back into that house, it’s the journey itself. We’ll learn what we need to learn either way, this isn’t a race, the journey itself is the important factor here.
The apathy and indifference that I have to life at the moment is partly because I am bored and disconnected from my spiritual self. I hardly seem to have any time to breathe, never mind work on any rituals, or enjoy my Tarot. So I have to make the time, as well as do the hundred and one other things I have to do. There is but one of me. Yes, I could ask the husband to help, but I’m picky about my decorating and the finish, plus I can hang wall-paper! Himself however will have bricks to lay in the fireplace soon enough; that I do not wish to do.
So, the real question, extending this out to you today is this: What do you really need to know? Not what you want to know, but what do you need? Take a look at the World Tree card, meditate on this card for a few moments whilst you think of your real question. When you’re ready, I’d love to hear it via the comments!
