Yesterday, I asked for a spiritual focus, and wondered if I should pull a line of five, or a double line of five. But I just drew three cards from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004), and found that was more than enough!
In the Lily, Paths and Sun, I see so many possibilities! There is the question of balance, of which path we choose: that of peace or that of energy? Conversely, we could see them as the path of passion or the path of enlightenment!

This reminded me of some yogic thought on the difficulties of leading a spiritual life and an everyday life.
