What is our salt?

Dear Ones,

As the Sun day commenced, I started asking myself about this week’s communion.

Shall I continue with last week’s theme of attachment and say a bit more about ‘de-tach-ment’?

Or shall I go into this notion of light, mission and stabilizing whatever environment we find ourselves in? Knowing there can be so many elements to stabilize in this earth? Our families, the earth grid, the geopolitical scene, and so on. You pick!

And so I asked the Tarot after my little meditation time. The Seven of Pentacles came, a young man looking at the fruits of his labor, a tool in his hand. That is a card about work, isn’t it? And therefore mission, I shall add.

The second car was the major arcana, The Star. It couldn’t be more explicit. The Star, not only as a balancing factor, but also as a nourishing one.

She holds, and balances, two pitchers. The one in her right hand adding water to the pond she faces, and the second one watering the soil she stands on.

What a beautiful, meaningful function which, evidently, leads one to the balancing of the Divine Feminine and the Sacred Masculine in our lives; the solid, strong earth standing for the Masculine and the flowing water being a symbol of the fluid and caressing energy of the Feminine.

The Star’s function feels very much like a ‘stabilizing act,’ you would agree?

In the same vein, I was mentioning to a group of friends yesterday the words that came to me a couple of weeks ago: ‘to be a stabilizing force.’

Possibly more in terms of assuaging the energies, be they at home, work, or on the international scene than in terms of stabilizing a geographical area.

One of my friends then brought up the analogy of salt that I used three years ago for a communion and a blogpost.

Hence my questions this week, in the light of what appears below in the quote from Matthew:

What is our salt, dear Ones?

And what function does it serve in the midst of the times we are living?

We can certainly think of salt as a grounding force; possibly a foundational one, laying at the very bottom of the earth. Then, how does salt connect, metaphorically speaking, with the Light that Yeshua is encouraging us to shine?

Matthew, 5: 13-16

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

14 “You are the Light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.

15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand and it gives light to everyone in the house.

16 In the same way, let your Light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Dear Ones, doesn’t it connect beautifully with the Marianne Williamson’s quote I shared the other day?

“And, as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people the permission to do the same.”

How wonderfully aligned is this world we live in!

About new desert

Nurturing the Gift of Seeking is about a spiritual "destination," a journey within, a new beginning, that eventually takes us where we are meant to arrive. Some call it Home, yet I am not sure what Home means, and where it is. Enjoy the journey, dear Ones! On this journey, what matters, first and foremost, is our seeking spirit. And the seed of perseverance--or faith, if you will. Happy journey, dear fellow Sisters and Brothers!
