The Hierophant — Spiritual Message of the Day

August 3, 2011

While God waits for his temple to be built of love, men bring stones. — Rabindranath Tagore
Your daily life is your temple and your religion. When you enter into it take with you your all. — Kahlil Gibran

High Priest (Hierophant) -- Tarot of the Masters
The true House of God is not made of brick and mortar; it is not a temple, church, or mosque. It is made of grass and trees, the breath of wind, and ocean waves. Its choir includes larks and whales, its hymns, the chirp of crickets and the howl of wolves. Its stained glass windows are sparkling lakes, painted sunsets, and starry skies on cool, clear nights. Its statues are majestic redwoods in verdant forests and gnarled stalagmites in deep, dark caverns. Its sacred works of art are the iridescent throat of a hummingbird, flashes of gold in a koi pond, and the fathomless depths in a baby’s eyes.

We sit in the pews of this temple every moment of our lives, whether we realize it or not, and our every thought reflects our prayers to the Divine, whether we realize that or not. And our actions reflect our worship of the Divine … or they don’t. That choice is always ours to make.

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.

  1. ditto what you said. So many seek solace and solitude and spirituality with blinders on…pity.

    Beautiful.
    The Divine is around us at all times. It’s up to us to feel our own true meaning of what he has to offer.

  3. Beautifully written! Was surprised to see the Hierophant was the card to go with the post, though, was expecting the Sun or maybe the High Priestess or Temperance or the Star.

  4. Thanks for all these comments!
    M: This went with the Hierophant because I associate that card with “religion”
    Best,
    James

  5. To me the Heirophant aka High Priest represents religious and other traditions, the importance of traditions and traditional rites, ;passages in one’s life.
