Tarot #6: Peace, Recreation of Being


“Peace does not mean an absence of conflicts; differences will always be there. Peace means solving these differences through peaceful means; through dialogue, education, knowledge; and through humane ways.” – Dalai Lama XIV

6 Days Gone

I am off to the silent cathedrals of mist rained giants holding firm to the earth,

I am away to make a bed by the shore and let the ocean sing soft booming songs to empty my crowded brains and make more room for  light and movement.

This peace exists in the moment before action. Before words and even thought, there is a pause before inhaling that can free you from compulsion to act or react. It is an empty vessel in which thoughts that wander in can be seen clearly and their origins discerned without trouble or fear. The challenge remains to stretch this peace to fill the world. Compassion and attention can stretch peace to cover all things. This is the way peace is achieved one person at a time.

Goin’ home, goin’ home, by the riverside i will rest my bones,
Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul.

Going to plant a weeping willow,
On the bank’s green edge it will grow, grow, grow.
Sing a lullaby beside the water,
Lovers come and go, the river roll, roll, roll.

Fare you well, fare you well, i love you more than words can tell,
Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul.

This card can also mean making emotional space to make clear decisions through reason, by distancing oneself from overly entangled situations. Or engaging the creative problem solving process of the intellect through the use of logic and intuition as in the use of symbols and engaging subconscious processes through meditation to help create a peaceful dispassionate state of mind to see all the aspects of the situation more clearly.
