The Tarot of Sister Who




Inspirational Photos #51-75












sw51:  "It is not the objects upon the altar which are sacred, but rather the faith which is thereby remembered specifically to guide each moment of life which follows, in wisdom and in love."  -- Sister Who







sw52:  "It is not the smoke from the censer that cleanses any space in which I worship, but rather my prayers which ascend with the smoke, that this space will be thereby prepared and equipped to facilitate an ongoing and empowering dialogue with Godde.”  -- Sister Who






sw53:  "It is not the perfection of performance which creates sacredness but rather the passions of the heart and mind which provide conviction and confidence to the words and meanings I express."    -- Sister Who








sw54:  "It is not the drum itself which is sacred, but the ongoing heartbeat of the spirit which can be thereby demonstrated."  -- Sister Who









sw55:  "It is neither the stones nor the configuration which make the walking meditation of the labyrinth sacred, but rather the focus and intention which I place within each step and the divine response of Godde's presence."  -- Sister Who






sw56:  "It is not the answers which impart sacredness, but rather the willingness to embrace deep questions; questions such as, 'Who are You, Godde?' and 'Consequently, who am I?' and to truly live by whatever understanding is thereby informed."   -- Sister Who








sw57:  "It is not the eloquent words of any human language which create sacredness, but rather the peace and love which are thereby expressed and the reality of the Divine which is thereby invoked."  -- Sister Who









sw58:  "It is not the photographs themselves which are sacred, but rather the awareness of how extensively and especially of how miraculously life is interconnected."  

-- Sister Who





sw59:  "It is not the pumpkin seed itself which is sacred, but rather the divine force of life within this seed (as within any seed) which holds the potential of millions upon millions of future pumpkins, expanding infinitely throughout eternity to feed and nurture countless generations yet to come."  

-- Sister Who







sw60:  "It is not the discarded structural forms of living things which are sacred, but rather the whispers of Godde which may yet be found there, if we will only take a moment to listen."  -- Sister Who








sw61:  "It is not the vivid colors through which the light shines upon me which are sacred, but rather the ways in which my soul is thereby illuminated and moved to holy worship."  

-- Sister Who








sw62:  "It is not the sunset which is sacred, but rather the awareness of harmony in life's cycles and passing, giving thanks for each moment of beauty I have been blessed to witness, to recall, and of which to have been a part."  

-- Sister Who






sw63:  “Life and the world of possibilities in which I live are so much bigger than the present moment I experience and filled with wonders waiting to be discovered--each one made sacred by a touch of love.”  -- Sister Who









sw64:  Gray's Peak; 14,270'; July 30, 2007.

sw66:  "Without the foundational step of tuning, of listening to know the pitch and tone of one's own voice, no harmony can follow."  -- Sister Who








sw67:  "In and of itself, spinning coins on edge does not seem a particularly meaningful activity.  The precision, willing participation, self-discipline, attentive vigilance, and application of just the right amount of force, however, are very much the qualities essential to every other instance of being or living in harmony."  -- Sister Who






sw68:  "If I do not first listen attentively to all that is said before composing my response, I will not be able to effectively respond to the one with whom I am attempting to communicate and I myself will become the greatest adversary to harmony between us."  -- Sister Who





sw69:  "The manifestation of the yin-yang symbol is wonderfully illustrated by the motion of a Frisbee, which must spin in order to fly and receives that ability from the hand it leaves.  The contrasting colors constantly trade places, just as living in harmony requires embracing an understanding of our opposites, loving our enemies, and dancing peacefully with everything around and within us."  -- Sister Who





sw70:  "The stream moves in one direction, but by thoughtful relationship with the stones in my path, I am able to move in quite a different direction.  The differences between stones and water are quite significant, but if they can live in harmony, each allowing the other its own integrity, then perhaps I too can learn to move through contrasting currents of humanity according to the spirit within me."  -- Sister Who







sw71:  "Some vegetables grow on stems, others on vines, and still others as roots beneath the ground.  If I give to each whatever is needed to grow to the best possible form, I will be nourished as well, when the time for harvest finally arrives."         -- Sister Who





sw72:  "In drawing lines in the sand of a Zen garden, I do not tense my muscles in order to rigidly control them.  Rather, I am seeking to create and to connect an inner experience of peace, wisdom, and harmony with an outer one (and vice versa as well), so that I am the servant rather than the master of peaceful, wise, and harmonious intent and being-ness within and all around."     -- Sister Who






sw73:  "With eight wheels, four axles, and two shoes between myself and a potentially painful collision with the pavement, harmony is not optional.  Whenever and wherever harmony is achieved, however, grace and joy follow."     -- Sister Who








sw74:  "Neither the sands within the hourglass nor Time itself are mindful of human impatience, but rather offer us a means by which to coordinate our collaborative efforts toward greater outcomes than any of us could ever manage all alone."     

-- Sister Who






sw75:  "Reading and learning are like inhaling; speaking and acting are like exhaling.  These functions--in harmonious balance--are as essential to the human spirit as they are to the human body, if genuine life is to be sustained."     

-- Sister Who
