Many of the Tarot readings I do are about romantic relationships. I feel that the title of this post which is a quote by Barbara Corcoran is a truth that if only my clients would understand it, my workload would be cut in half – and I would be fine with that because it would make room for healthier questions to read on than ‘Does he love me?’ or ‘Will he come back?’
The ego-mind is proud and loves to invent excuses for the blatant disregard our current squeeze has for us and our personal boundaries. It will tell you that sex equals passion. It will tell you that he is not lying about being busy at work as the real reason for why he’s not texting as much any more. It will even tell you that (gasp!) you’ll be able to change him… even though you laugh when you hear others say the same thing about their love interest because you know how utterly ridiculous and even insane this statement is.
That’s ego mind for you – totally bonkers!
If he is passionate about you, you will know. You won’t need a reading on it. It really is that simple.
And if you are passionate, truly passionate about your work, you will be able to persevere, no matter how taxing or tedious the work gets. Which reminds me…
About that book (memo to self):
If you feel you have a book in you and you still haven’t written it, or you have started and abandoned the project (perhaps more than once), it could be because the drive to write it isn’t aligned with your soul’s calling but with your ego’s need for status and recognition.
That’s not to say you don’t have a book in you… but it’s probably not the one you currently have in mind if you can’t stick with it. Or it could be that you’re not passionate enough about getting published.
If I’m perfectly honest with myself, I’ll never be as passionate about writing a book as I am about blogging. I love blogging. I feel bereft if I go more than three days without a post. I love it for multiple reasons: the immediacy, the therapeutic value, the feedback from my readers, the ability to keep my finger on the pulse, the ability to change topics – a lot (#geminirising), the research…
Somewhere in the back of my mind, I have this nagging voice that tells me I should get published. (Other people like to remind me of how important it is too.) I don’t like the sound of that voice – it’s not the voice of passion. I will start writing when it sounds like the voice that makes me wake up and get out of bed with a spring in my step because I have another idea for a blog post.
It’s true – you really can’t fake passion.
The Tarot Knights are all on a quest. The Knight of Wands is on a quest for adventure, the Knight of Swords is on a quest for truth, the Knight of Pentacles is on a quest for material stability and the Knight of Cups is on a quest for passion…
