magic, coincidence, synchronistic events
music, poetry, myth, history, the enchantment of storytelling
This card represents music; storytelling; and the passing of truths, myths, and legends from generation to generation through the spoken word or song. In ancient Avalon, the traditions and stories of the people were gathered on leaves that served as letters in a living alphabet and were tended in vast, long houses. Here the Druids and priestesses came to read and weave the stories of magic and the sacred relationship to the God/Goddess and the Mystery. Those schooled in the art of music and storytelling were given the task of informing their world and keeping the stories of their culture alive. They were given the name of Bard. When the Bard appears, you’re asked to seek answers in your personal history. Go back into your own story and find the threads of the patterns in your reality, and trace their length to the present. Perhaps you’ll be surprised by how much of your past, or that of your ancestors, still weaves its influence on you today. When the Bard appears, he asks you to retrieve the stories woven in the past. Perhaps you need to learn about the history of someone, or something important to your inquiry. The seeds of the future are always hidden in the soil of the past. It’s time to dig a little to find the clarity you need. Don’t be afraid to learn the patterns of history. The only way to honor them or change them is to know them. Perhaps it’s time to listen to music and allow yourself to be carried into the land of memory and listen for its messages as the strings of your soul are strummed by the hand of the Divine. Remember that the Bard appears to help you stay in tune with the All-That-Is. You are music, and your story is sung in the heavens.
muzica, poezie, mit, istorie, incantarea povestirii
Aceasta carte reprezinta muzica; actul de a povesti; si transmiterea adevarurilor, miturilor si legendelor din generatie in generatie prin cuvantul rostit sau prin cantec. In anticul Avalon, traditiile si povestile oamenilor erau adunate pe frunze care serveau drept scrisori ale unui alfabet viu si erau tinute in vaste lacasuri si case. Aici, druizii si preotesele veneau sa citeasca si sa teasa povestile despre magie si relatiile sacre fata de Zei/Zeite si Marele Mister. Celor scoliti in arta muzicii si a povestirii le era incredintata sarcina de a informa lumea si de a pastra cultura vie. Lor li s-a dat numele de Barzi.
Cand Bardul apare, ti se cere sa cauti raspunsuri in proria ta istorie. Du-te inapoi, in istoria personala si cauta firele modelelor realitatii tale si urmareste-le urmele pana in prezent. Poate ca vei ramane surprins(a) cat de mult din trecutul tau, din stramosii tai isi tes inca influenta asupra ta astazi. Poate ca este necesar sa afli povestea sau istoria cuiva sau a ceva important din ancheta ta. Semintele viitorului sunt intotdeauna ascunse in solul trecutului. A sosit vremea sa sapi putin pentru a afla mai multa claritate. Nu te teme sa inveti modelele istoriei. Singura cale de a le onora sau de a le schimba este de a le cunoaste. Poate ca este timpul sa asculti muzica si sa te lasi purtat(a) pe taramul memoriei si sa asculti mesajele sale in timp ce notele sufletului iti sunt cantate de mana Divinului. Aminteste-ti ca Bardul apare pentru a te ajuta sa fii in legatura cu Tot-ceea-ce-Este. Tu esti muzica, iar muzica ta este cantata in ceruri.
