A Personal Journey Through the Tarot: Ace of Cups

The Grail Quest

“And thou who thinkest to seek for me, know thy seeking and yearning shall avail thee not, unless thou know this mystery: that if that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee, thou wilt never find it without thee.” excerpt from The Charge of the Goddess by Doreen Virtue

This is the secret of the Grail. True bliss and contentment comes from within. If you can not find in your own heart you will never find it. 

The Ace of Cups is the Prime of Water. Like the primordial ocean it is the birthplace of all emotion and desire. It is the tumultuous heart that takes shape according to the life that holds it. If you wish to find your bliss you must listen to your heart. 

Today I draw the The Ace of Cups and reflect upon the source of my bliss. Am I constantly expecting the world to deliver it? Have I spent anytime in silence listening to my own rhythms and tides? Am I gentle with myself when my disposition ebbs and flows?
