“The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity answered, “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”—(via myquotelibrary)
Honey is a humectant (it attracts and retains moisture) and is often used in soaps, cleansers and lotions. Due to honey’s anti-bacterial nature, it can cleanse the skin’s surface as well as temporarily tighten the outer skin layers. Honey acts as both cleanser and toner.
It is funny to me how ignorant people can be when it comes to something such as tarot. You get the usual, oh, it is evil and witchcraft…as well as “it is just a bunch of nonsense”. For myself, I could care less if anyone thinks that. They obviously have no idea. This unfortunately happens with many different types of religions and spiritual beliefs, guidance, and more. However, what really gets me from time to time is how people misunderstand the cards. Each card can interpret something quite different, it all depends on the reading, but it seems to me that many get turned off by cards that are actually quite positive just because of the name.
Such as The Fool, which is one of my personal favorite cards. I’ve had people make faces whenever this card is brought up…which I suppose I understand. No one wants to be associated with “fool”. Who wants to be foolish? But The Fool truly isn’t as foolish as others may believe. In fact, The Fool, in my opinion, becomes one of the most wise. Maybe not at first, actually, most likely not at first…but they learn. They experience everything on their own and learn many lessons along the way…because they do what they please without the fear of what others think.
Fools are child-like. Free. They have beautiful spirits. While “normal” may think Fools are stupid and silly, they have great minds and are full of light.
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
the old that is strong does not wither,
deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
a light from the shadows shall spring;
renewed shall be the blade that was broken,
the crownless again shall be king.”—J.R. R. Tolkien (via raininrainbow)
