The Star — Spiritual Message of the Day

July 3, 2011

Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.–Rabindranath Tagore

The Star -- Tarot of the MastersI have written the content of this section in a way different from the others; I wrote it as a poem in free verse.  I did this because the Star evokes deep, ineffable feelings and thus has a poetic quality.  Also, I was inspired to do this because I was reading a wonderful book of poetry (Ten Poems to Change Your Life by Roger Housden) when I began composing this material.


True, abiding faith lies beyond
any knowledge or belief.
It is wisdom of the heart
that transcends
any knowing of the mind.

It holds dearly to a shining hope
that our heart affirms
but that our mind cannot explain.
Meager words pale before it.
If words could explain it,
it would merely be belief.

It lifts us and carries us
along our journey
when belief stumbles.
It comforts us
when knowledge fails us.

Whereas knowledge and belief
are ever changing,
Faith is eternal,
supple and humble.

Faith is the guiding star
that leads us to salvation.
It is a gift of divine grace,
our soul’s response
to the divine call
to return home.

If you enjoy these words of spiritual advice from the cards, you will love my new Tarot book called The Soul’s Journey: Finding Spiritual Messages in the Tarot.
