The cotd for Friday, July 26, 2013 is Nine of Sacred Circles (Pentacles) from the Ancestral Path Tarot by Julie Cuccia-Watts.
LWB- Mastery of life. Maturity brings wisdom and the responsibility to share wisdom with others. Savoring the blessings bestowed by age. In a less exalted sense, the image points out the dangers of hero-worship, dependency upon doctrine, and unworthy gurus.
“Maturity is when your world opens up and you realize that you are not the center of it.”
~ M.J. Croan
“The willingness to forgive is a sign of spiritual and emotional maturity. It is one of the great virtues to which we all should aspire. Imagine a world filled with individuals willing both to apologize and to accept an apology. Is there any problem that could not be solved among people who possessed the humility and largeness of spirit and soul to do either — or both — when needed?”
~Gordon B. Hinckley, Standing for Something: 10 Neglected Virtues That Will Heal Our Hearts and Homes
