XIX The Sun


(based on Meditations on the Tarot by Anonymous)

Insight reflects

the intense fervor

of profound intimacy

and gifted wisdom.

“Let there be light,”

and there was light.

God saw that light was good,

and was separated from darkness.”[1]

At its rising –

the great awakening

at its setting –

the liminal twilight.

The sun shows the way,

endowing insight,

providing realization…

it warms the regard.

All are given light:

success sparkles,

satisfaction shines,

serenity shimmers.

I am the Alpha and the Omega,

to the thirsty, I will give water.

to the unbelieving, the lying,

I will give a burning lake.[2]

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
