22 chapters in the biblical book of Revelations. 22 cards in the tarot major arcana. Allow me the opportunity to set the records straight, secular spirituality is my “religion,” based on the syncretism of mythology, narratology, linguistics, psychology, phenomenology and semiotics. Thus is the foundation of my personal philosophy. These are my words, my thoughts, my selfish self-centred version of the truth of divinity.
Chapter 10 – Eyes on the action, secret plans are made known and immediately hidden.
This next part is fantastic because I’m in it for a bit longer! Hey! 😊
8 Then the voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again and said, “Go, take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the earth.”
This is represented in the 14th card of the major arcana, Temperance. The star, 17th card of the major arcana, is an inspirational healer. Both of these who straddles the divide between water and earth. See? They mete out the healing holy waters accordingly. Albeit, Star is more forthcoming than good ol’ Tempe (careful you don’t piss him off. Got a bit of a temper, the tempest).
9 So I went to the angel and said to him, “Give me the little book.”
And he said to me, “Take and eat it; and it will make your stomach bitter, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth.”
10 Then I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. But when I had eaten it, my stomach became bitter. 11 And he said to me, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings.”
On the shoreline, their own little book in hand. “On my mark”. Wait for the signal… 7 thunders echoes heard on the wind. Answering the call, howling in harmony. Voicing they are ready and are with the first angel who cried out. Bitter pill to swallow, a harsh truth. But a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.
Tongue wagers. Gossips. Glossolalists.
