Deliberate Draw: Ten of Pentacles

First Impressions:  sixties dance club, abandon

Book:  Journey through the physical realm

Guidance:  Experience Ecstasy through a journey through the physical realm

Journaling

This is an interesting interpretation of the ten of pentacles, but it sort of makes sense as the ten does represent the culmination of the journey.  When I look at it as a journey, I realize it is about accepting the blessings that are offered and making the most of them.  For me, I've learned that the money and the stuff are not the be all and end all, they are the things that ease the journey and I don't want to give them up, but they are not important in and of themselves.  I'm very happy that I have a home and nice things because they are a way to provide for my family, but in and of themselves they don't matter that much.  The unfortunate thing is that some people use money as a way to keep score and they become miserable in wanting to accumulate more and more, but money in and of itself is not that important.

Money is what lets us take care of the people that we love and that lets us have some freedom.  There are people who believe that money isn't important, but I don't believe that either because money lets us do things and lets us live a more comfortable life.  I know that we are living a better life because I make more money, but money is important because it lets us do that and not as a measurement itself.  I guess what I'm trying to say is that money is a tool and not an end to itself.

The other piece about this card that is important is the aspect of family and of having people around you to share what you have.  For me, that is my kids, but for Lisa on this card it is her dance group.  Either way, it is about having people in your life who you trust and who are there for you.


Gratitudes:

I'm grateful for sleeping late
I'm grateful for hanging out with Cam
I'm grateful for Wendy & Clark learning to walk well
I'm grateful I have a house to live in and money to pay my bills
