Tarot #4: The Devil, Taking a Leap onto the Wild Side

devil

Asking no permission for the sensual impulse the spiral force of the universe runs through us bringing with it the creative act without fear of consequences or judgement. A laughing leap into the void with no net, the passion of Now is all consuming, saying Yes! to whatever is on the other side. To never take such a risk is to run the risk of being locked in the bland and humorless Self-made prison profuse with the odor of regret and safe same-old. Life is a balancing act teetering over a flaming pit, we might as well be acrobats. We may as well sing and dance our way across.

“If we listened to our intellect, we’d never have a love affair. We’d never have a friendship. We’d never go into business, because we’d be too cynical. Well, that’s nonsense. You’ve got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.”

Annie Dillard

Song from a dream

I’d rather be dancer down the street,

with broken glass and garbage cans

beneath my feet.

I’d rather be a painter or the Devil.
