3 of Water – Celebration

Three of Water: Celebration

These three women dancing in the wind and the rain remind us that celebration never need depend on outside circumstances. We need not wait for a special holiday or a formal occasion, nor a sunny and cloudless day. True celebration arises from a joy that is first experienced deep within, and spills over into an overflow of song and dance and laughter, and yes, even tears of gratitude. When you choose this card, it indicates that you are becoming more and more available and open to the many opportunities that are to celebrate in life, and to spread this by contagion to others. Don’t bother about scheduling a party on your calendar. Let your hair down, take your shoes off, and start splashing in the puddles right now. The party is happening all around you every moment!

Osho’s Teachings

Life is a moment to celebrate, to enjoy. Make it fun, a celebration, and then you will enter the temple. The temple is not for the long-faced, it has never been for them. Look at life–do you see sadness anywhere? Have you ever seen a tree depressed? Have you seen a bird anxiety-ridden? Have you seen an animal neurotic? No, life is not like that, not at all. Only man has gone wrong somewhere, and he has gone wrong somewhere because he thinks himself to be very wise, very clever. Your cleverness is your disease. Don’t be too wise. Always remember to stop; don’t go to the extreme. A little foolishness and a little wisdom is good, and the right combination makes you a buddha.

Everlasting

Everlasting

Thou art hidden from us, though the heavens are filled  With Thy Light, which is brighter than sun and moon !

Thou art hidden, yet revealest our hidden secrets ! 

Thou art the Source that causes our rivers to flow. 

Thou art hidden in Thy essence, but seen by Thy bounties. 

Thou art like the water, and we like the mill- stone. 

Thou art like the wind, and we like the dust ; The wind is unseen, but the dust is seen by all. Thou art the Spring, and we the sweet green garden ;

Spring is not seen, though its gifts are seen. Thou art as the Soul, we as hand and foot ; Soul instructs hand and foot to hold and take. 

Thou art as Reason, we like the tongue ; 'Tis reason that teaches the tongue to speak. 

Thou art as Joy, and we are laughing ; 

The laughter is the consequence of the joy. 

Our every motion every moment testifies. 

For it proves the presence of the Everlasting God.
