Question: "What is wisdom?"
Response: 5 OF
PENTACLES. Wisdom is the ability to make practical changes when adversity
strikes. It is acute knowledge of all states of being, all conditions of
life. Wisdom is carefulness with one's resources, based upon experience.
It is a willingness to shake up old security patterns when we are
complacent. Wisdom is compassionately attending another life through all
times of life, through good and bad.
Question: "What is a question?"
Answer: ACE OF
CUPS. A question is a seed of relatedness, a doorway to intimacy, and a
wish for greater depth. Questions, not answers, are the real Holy Grail,
the source of nourishment. A question is a deep pool waiting for us to
dive in, a surface upon which to
our ideas, an offering of pure trust, and the root of societal clustering.
