Mindful of the Absurdity

TaoCraft Short Sip is Tarot for your day in the time it takes to sip from your coffee. We sip again Monday.

Hello and welcome to a very short sip of Tarot. I’m glad you are here.

I mostly just want to say have a happy weekend. My intentions are to be back on the usual Monday through Friday for Short Sip Blog to podcast posts. I hope you will follow the blog as a well as the podcast. The plan is to post some fall plans so the Squirrel rave can proceed to put it all into this blender of circumstances we call life.

Today’s Tarot card is the Page of Cups. It’s one of my favorites, particularly when the art follows the Pixie Smith motif of dude on the beach with a fish in a cup. Life is just that odd sometimes.

Fish in a cup? Cheers.

Not saying I would drink live fishwater. I am saying, however, sometimes it pays to embrace the oddity of it. Some days, or some weeks call for us to dig deep and channel our inner Dude with all of the housecoat and flip-flop-ness that we can muster.

Just because we are being mindful of the present moment, just because we are abiding with it, doesn’t mean we can’t laugh at it outright.

I think we make this mistake too much in America. Spiritual and important are conflated with dour, serious, somber, wet blankets.

Spirituality is lighthearted. Spirituality embraces all that being a human embraces and that includes laughter and fun.

Think of Dan Millman’s “laughter of the enlightened man.” Think of Lama Surya Das’ instagram feed. I highly recommend the “Friday funnies” from the “jolly lama” as he puts it.

With that, I leave you to your weekend. Whatever fish comes in that cup, I hope it makes you smile.

See you at the next sip
