Tarot #73 : IX The Hermit, travelling the inward path in search of truth and enlightenment.

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more”

― Lord Byron

Hermit 2

“Solitude gives birth to the original in us, to beauty unfamiliar and perilous – to poetry. But also, it gives birth to the opposite: to the perverse, the illicit, the absurd.”

― Thomas Mann, Death in Venice and Other Tales


“In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion.”

― Albert Camus, The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Essays

“Faith is not the clinging to a shrine but an endless pilgrimage of the heart.”

― Abraham Joshua Heschel

Wonder alone; bearing the Light and thy Staff.

And, be the Light so bright that no man seeth thee.

Be not moved by aught without or within:

keep silence in all ways.

Aleister Crowley, The Book of Thoth

 “We have only now, only this single eternal moment opening and unfolding before us, day and night.”

~Jack Kornfield

It is only in the depth of silence that the voice of Spirit can be heard. Speak as low as possible, as little as possible, as sweetly as possible.
