#TarotAndYoga #WeekendMantra: Sunday meditation one of my favourite days for personal practice, since it translates to a more unhurried pace for mindful time. A much needed pause amidst all the buzz about Mercury retrograde, lunar and solar eclipses imminent. Today’s meditation brings us the Dryad card from the Mythical Creatures Tarot. 🍃
The Dryad card is equivalent to the Queen of Pentacles card. In Greek mythology, Dryads were tree spirits, often typified as beautiful nymphs, who were considered guardians of trees and forests in general. They were immortal spirits who were very lovely, very shy and were symbolic of the grandeur & beauty of Nature.
Echoing the earthy quality of the Dryad, the Queen of Pentacles also embodies the symbiotic qualities of Water = Queen & Earth = Pentacles. Physically attractive, sensuous, yet practical & down-to-earth, the Queen of Pentacles reminds us to look at the abundance that life gives us; on the face of it, we might be hard pressed to find that which is abundant in our lives, but that is what the practise of mindfulness & a spiritual life asks of us and teaches us. To be able to look into small & simple things in our lives & in them, find the wealth of joy, contentment & goodness in the most ordinary of things. Just to be alive, be breathing free air & enjoying daily health, is in itself, a great wealth & gift to be thankful for. 🍃
'From the Buddhist perspective, given the mind-boggling number of life-forms that fill the universe, human life is a rare privilege with special responsibilities. 🍃
'As Nichiren, referring to a passage from the Nirvana Sutra, states: “It is rare to be born a human being. The number of those endowed with human life is as small as the amount of earth one can place on a fingernail.” ‘ ~SGI Quarterly. Namaste yogis!
