I hear a lot about the evils of Television… But I like TV and call me antagonistic or provocative or whatever (trust me I’ve been called worse) but maybe if you don’t like TV then you’re using it the wrong way. I like TV. I like the background noise that muffles out the sounds that I don’t want to hear… Sounds drifting in from the street outside – other people’s hustle and bustle that holds no interest for me. I like that TV drowns that out and I like that I can easily zone out the sound of the TV and I like that sometimes even when I think I’m fully absorbed in something else, a few words break through that sound out loudly and resonate in a way that makes me stop what I’m doing to ponder on why those sounds grabbed my attention.
I was in the process of clearing my desk and heading to bed when TV words bounced my ears… The phrase that came through was:
Bringing the sacred and the profane together
It sounded like an instant tarot spread being gifted to me so I wrote down the phrase so I wouldn’t forget it. By that point I’d forgotten I was heading to bed and instead I pulled out The Magical Nordic Tarot
1. The Sacred – The Magician
2. The Profane – The Wheel of Fortune
3. Bringing them together – 8 of Cups
Cards down, I found it interesting that I sat looking at my soul card (Magician) and personality card (W of F). I’ll not bore you with my thoughts on those, I’m sure if you’re here, then you can most probably read for yourself. (And if you don’t know tarot, then just look and make something up. It really is that easy… Say what you see…)
The 8 of Cups bringing together… Uniting my body and soul? I guess that’s one way of looking at it… But I spy the word doorways and it’s a good reminder to walk away from things/situations that can’t be fixed. When things fall apart, the only pieces I need to pick up are my parts…
I cast my eye back to the image in The Wheel of Fortune and it reminds of me playing around around a week or so ago with What’s in a Web – one of the images from the OO (formerly D. O.) so I’ll drop that here…
Let me know if you try my TV spread.
