4 of Cups - Apathy Towards Change

Autumn Arrives tomorrow Sept 22nd, 2014.
As I prepare to welcome the season an important part of the
process is to Ask, "What is the Message for the coming season?"

There are some times of the year
when the connection with Spirit intensifies.
For Me, it begins with Fall.
A seasonal altar is prepared.
The energy in the room feels different.
I feel a burst of happy giggles & dance
around the room.
(I've been known to do that!)
Frankincense fills the air.

What is the message for the Equinox?
What am I to share?
The first words I hear is "Change".
"The Apathy of Indifference"

I fan a deck of cards out before me & chose 1 card.
The 4 of Cups.
Apathy? Indifference? For sure.
The 4 Cups = 4 Seasons
Have We become indifferent to the changes around us?
Are We indifferent to the display Mother Nature
puts before Us?
On a more individual level,
Do We embrace change in Our lives joyfully?
Are We open to new possibilities or
Are We stuck in rut of monotony?
If you are unhappy with a job, relationship,
a lifestyle?
Do you remain in the place of unhappiness
or do you look forward to making change?
Change can be good.
The uncertainty can be scary,
But it can be exciting.
It can bring passion back into the mundane.

Nature is NOT indifferent.
Each season dances with a beauty of it's own.
There is no boredom in nature.
Each change of seasons serves a purpose.

We need to embrace change.
Set New goals,
Find the passion.
See that cup, hiding in the background?
That just may be The Golden Chalice.
The Holy Grail.
Lift the veil of apathy & embrace change.
I'm ready,
Are You?
