“Mystification is simple; clarity is the hardest thing of all.”
― Julian Barnes, Flaubert’s Parrot
One of the reasons I love the Ace of Swords so much is because of the promise of clarity it brings. This sword has the power to cut away all the dross and sweep the cobwebs of the mind clean off with one swift blow (mind your head!).
The one in the picture above is from one of my new favourite Tarot Decks, the Dragon Tarot by Peter Pracownik.
Conversely, one of the reasons I hate many so called ‘spiritual’ teachings (and channelled material in particular) is that they are often way too verbose to have a an impact on my psyche.
Have you noticed how the kind of truth that brings clarity and helps us be more authentic is rarely expressed in more than a few words?
Being succinct to the point of ‘harsh’ is the gift that comes with being on the autistic spectrum. I love it in others and I struggle when this is not appreciated in me.
Please be gentle and hold your tongue if you feel a case of verbal diarrhea coming on – Those of us who are slightly autistic get tired of constantly having to repair our BS meters. And don’t even think of preaching at us. Your supposed words of power, mystery and authority are instantly perceived for what they actually are… just like the Emperor’s new clothes.
Love and Blessings,
