“Si può benissimo pensare che la magnificenza della vita sia pronta intorno a ognuno e in tutta la sua pienezza, ma velata, nel profondo, invisibile, lontanissima. E però non ostile, non riluttante, non sorda. Se la si chiama con la parola giusta, col giusto nome, viene.”
—Franz Kafka, Lettera a Milena (via dreams-in-my-sky)

Still (by noël-michèle)
“Look around you: I mean it. Pause, for a moment and look around the room that you are in. I’m going to point out something so obvious that it tends to be forgotten. It’s this: that everything you can see, including the walls, was, at some point, imagined.”
—Neil Gaiman (via aumunlimited)

The Goddess Isis and Horus

"It was gnostic art that reproduced the Isis/Hathor/Meri and Horus of Egypt as the Virgin and Christ in Rome, which served as the sole portraits of characters entirely ideal, turned historical."

I was looking through Simple Fortunetelling with Tarot Cards by Corrine Kenner, and of course I had to look at the spreads. Of course.

This one seemed interesting, so I thought I’d share it! 

The Three Mysteries

The Three Mysteries spread is a three-card layout designed to address the great mysteries of life — particularly matters of love, loss, and transformation. You can try the spread with the major arcana cards alone or a full seventy-eight card deck.

Card 1 is the mystery you understand. This is a major issue that you know well, and you have come to terms with it.

Card 2 is the mystery that eludes you. This is a life lesson that you haven’t experienced and may never fully understand.

Card 3 is the mystery you will come to comprehend. This is a revelation that will soon unfold for you.
