Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Cauldron, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma
The Cauldron: “The cauldron represents a bringing forth, from the depths of your being, an expression of your own vision and creativity. You are now ready to give birth to a dream that has been developing within you for some time. the moment is ripe to make a meaningful contribution, and your essential self has already begun to prepare you for the next step.
Within itself, your unique nature carries all you need to succeed – and your commitment is such that you will achieve the best possible results without compromising the integrity of your work or of your own being. When life reveals the path ahead, it is testifying to the timeliness of our creative vision and its potential to benefit others. The first whisperings of that “Go ahead!” may appear from within or in unexpected ways – as dreams, an insight sparked by a glimpse of something, or words overheard in a passing conversation. This existential green light is the culmination of a long gestation period that required patient perseverance on your part. Not only has it been a test of character, it has also reflected the depth of your own self-worth. We become integrated and mature by watching, waiting, and trusting that all these insights and impressions will be added to the cauldron and will, one day, be fully “cooked.” Trusting from your core that there is perfection in the timing of all things keeps the cauldron simmering nicely – and as time passes its fragrance begins to permeate every aspect of your life.
Learning to relax with life’s give and take, without imposing limits or calculating gains and losses, creates wisdom, compassion, and the ability to discern what is appropriate in even the most difficult circumstances. This sharpened awareness works in harmony with an intuitive knowing that immediately senses the correct means of approach, and who to approach when help is needed.
The Cauldron is wisdom that purifies the false, superfluous, and superficial, and shifts the emphasis from the mundane to the higher values that help us live in peaceful harmony with nature and each other. by defining and refining. The Cauldron increases our capacity for clarity by illuminating our virtues. Wisdom is luminous. When we live creatively in self-awareness and self-mastery, the resulting luminosity, merely by its presence, effortlessly exposes ignorance and darkness of all kinds.
Perceiving life as an invitation that only awaits your participation triggers a subtle dismantling of rigid thinking patterns that have created insecurity and fear of change. You are at a crossroads now. The path may not be visible, but you sense and welcome the first signs of the deep shift that is taking place. There may be a greater sense of freedom in your words and actions, and in how you relate with others.
Finally, you can appreciate the unique individual you are. Offering that uniqueness to others is the way to return something, in gratitude, to Existence. The more you give, the more you will continue to be rejuvenated. Your life can become your art, your prayer, your meditation. In its wisdom and abundance, Tao gently guides us to follow its course, and when we do so, it gives back a thousandfold.”*
