In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.” ~Deepak Chopra
‘Tis the season to navigate chaos. The mass market media holiday blitz can be a challenge on many levels in a variety of ways. However, it is vital now more than ever to remember to find safety amidst the ruckus. This is a perfect time to honor the practice of stillness. For this reason, I chose to spotlight the second Tarot card of the Major Arcana, the High Priestess. In this Rider-Waite-Smith deck image we see a wise woman seated in a temple between two pillars. One is black and one is white, representing the polarities we encounter in life. We experience these opposites and sometimes define them as good or bad, right and wrong, positive and negative, limiting our connection to any true understanding of their roles in our lives.
