I The Magician (next day repost)

Based on Meditations on the Tarot

Sharing harmony –

the synthesis

of the impulse of the unconscious

and the compulsion of the conscious

The wisdom of Solomon…

balances a conundrum –

“Give the living baby to the first woman.

Do not kill him; she is his mother.” [1]

Thus the method of analogy

leads to the discovery of truths,

but, the method of analogy

is in not infallible.

Magic needs dexterity…

Charming fosters creativity…

Enchanting wants openness…

Delight promotes self-trust.

True concentration without effort

transforms work into play.

Detached indifference

reveals serene acceptance

The wind blows where it wills,

you hear the sound, but you do not know

whence it comes

or where it goes [2]

[1] 1 King 3:27

[2] John 3:8

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
