I have always enjoyed the Big Bang Theory and love all the characters. Who knew that something a young Sheldon Cooper shared would, after an entire lifetime, better help me understand ME? Who knew all these years I was relating to the philosophy of transcendentalism.
While there are many definitions, the simplest way I can define transcendentalism is being able to see “god” in all of nature. I always feel most peaceful and most at home near the ocean, in the mountains, working out at the park, in my yard, or most anywhere in nature. I say good morning to Mr. Sun pretty much every day, and thank him for the warmth and energy he brings to all living things. I follow the cycle of the moon and never, ever come home from the beach without some shells or sponge. I am grateful for every fish and turtle I see in my canal as well as every duck who comes walking by with her babies. I have learned to coexist with the families of iguanas who hang around all year waiting for our mangoes to ripen and fall, always telling them there is more than enough for all of us. I embrace a plant-based diet and lean heavily into veganism. I would guess most vegans are also transcendentalists. Several rather famous authors including Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau believed and wrote about this philosophy.
So, again, no coincidence that the last time I purchased a new set of Oracle cards I was completely drawn to THE SPIRIT ANIMAL ORACLE deck. This morning I am going to pull one for anyone who might be reading this today. Perhaps, in the message, you will find something that resonates as we prepare to celebrate the arrival of spring, early tomorrow morning.
So I shuffled the deck a lot and asked my guides for a message that would resonate with you and probably NOT coincidentally, the same card that popped out for yard yoga last night, came up again. This, out of 68 cards.
