Sparks, Cogs & Grease

Today’s card reminds me that if I can’t find this one thing in life, nothing really works. It is as if it is the grease in my cogs. No, it’s actually not joy that I’m talking about. It’s passion.

This is the Ace of Bows from the Wildwood Tarot. It is called “the spark of life”. You can have arrows (intentions). You can have a bow (will). If you don’t have the oomph to pull the bow, then nothing happens.

Make something happen. Spark your own interest. If what you are doing now doesn’t grab you by the throat? Do something else.

I know it isn’t that simple. And I’m not talking about walking off your job, away from your life. I’m talking about recommitting to where you are now. Recommit to making it fun for you. Even it it is in small ways.

Remember that joy piles up. It accumulates. It becomes an avalanche that sweeps you up and carries you forward.

But it isn’t “think about joy.” It isn’t “consider joy.” Nope. It’s SEEK JOY. This is an active verb, y’all. It’s about passion. It’s about making it happen for yourself.

So pull that bow, babies. Draw back and let it fly. Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on.

  1. Funny, I drew the Ace of Swords today, but in some ways it came to the same thing: I got back on the Youtube wagon, which is something that really lights my fire ๐Ÿ˜€
