Tarot Meditation - Empress

There is a great mountain in the distance and the hawks are circling around above it.
The Sun breaks through the clouds and illuminates the mountain revealing its splendor, for it is made of crystal and amethyst, with golden and silver veins passing through its midst. Sun and Moon bathe it every day and every night and in their light the mountain stands even more beautiful, nourished by their energies that activate solar and lunar flow within the mountain. And in the midst of this mountain is a dwelling place of motherly love, and of love between sweet maiden and her knight. The colors of this kingdom are rosy. And their fields are pastel green. It is the kind of love characterized by innocence and purity and youth. And one’s presence there is a blessing, for wherever one steps - in that place flowers grow. And every word one utters is followed by the song of the Birds of Paradise. To fall asleep here is to rest in the sweetest of dreams. To eat foods here is to drink divine nectars that seep from exalted vineyards of eternity. And to breathe air here is to be ever-intoxicated by ecstatic joys. And this place is in the midst of the mountains protected by their hard shells. And this kingdom is nourished by the sun and the moon, daily and nightly, both of which give of their light generously to celebrate this kingdom of love, selfless giving and surrender of the heart, body and spirit.
"As long as space endures, as long as sentient beings remain, until then, may I too remain to dispel the miseries of the world." - Arya Shantideva, Bodhicaryāvatāra

I have to disagree with our beloved prophet. This one is better than the Moon chapter.

This was my chapter in 1=10.

Recommended practice for today: Liber Had.
Love is the law, love under will.
