Happy FriYay, my friends! For our pick-a-pile readings this week, you get to pick the Rumi quote above that resonates the most right now. Before scrolling down to your individual reading, please take a moment to enjoy the general guidance for the collective below. For the pick a quote readings, we are working with the Morgan Greer Tarot. And the general guidance message is with the Tarot of the Holy Light and the Gospel of Thomas.
Yeshua said, “You see the speck that’s in your brother’s eye, but you don’t see the beam in your own eye. When you get the beam out of your own eye, then you’ll be able to see clearly to get the speck out of your brother’s eye.”Gospel of Thomas, Logion 26
Together with the 6 of Cups, the Logion above reminds us to allow our higher mind to tame the ego every time we feel tempted to pass judgment. Nothing kills our spirit of childlike innocence and delight as quickly as going into judgment of another. Deep down we know that the very thing we judge in another is something lurking in our own shadows. Look at how the putti angels in the 6 of Cups are playfully taming the lion. They are not scolding it. Judging ourselves for judging is never going to be as effective as simply observing our judgmental attitudes/behaviours and releasing them as soon as they arise.
Rumi Quote 1
As you start to walk on the way,
The way appears.
Your confidence is growing this week and it will keep on growing if you keep on walking in the direction you are heading, even though you may not yet be certain exactly where that will take you.
Pay attention to any dream messages. Be kind to yourself. This isn’t going to be an easy week and you’ll have to face some of your biggest fears. Much progress can be made but there is no payout in sight yet. Believe in yourself and keep going where your intuition guides you!
Rumi Quote 2
Only from the heart can you touch the sky.
When you find yourself having to make an important choice this week, choose with your heart and not with your head. Your feelings will guide you toward your True North. And if you’re still not sure, ask a friend whom you know has your best interests at heart.
This is a week for taking action, not for overanalysing the situation. Allow your creativity to flow freely!
Rumi Quote 3
These pains you feel are messengers.
Listen to them.
The enemy within wants you to quit. He’s relentlessly reminding you that you are broken beyond repair to make you give up. The enemy is a liar. You are not broken, my friend. You may be wounded and scarred but you are healing and you are here to shine your light.
Rumi also reminds us that the light enters through our wounds.
Give your own suffering meaning by ministering to those who have gone through or are still going through similar lessons. Let your light shine brightly here and now. Don’t put it off until you are perfect. You are enough, just as you are!
