The Snail: “Fool’s Gold,” Context, New Appreciation & Perspective, Patience, Soul Purpose, True Beauty
“All that glitters is not gold . . .”
There is a beautiful old oak tree, one that the Cheshire Cat frequently visits (well, his ever-grinning mouth does, anyway). One day, as I had finished burying my face in the mossy chest of the fatherly hardwood and smelling the earthy richness of the soft bark, I was delighted to find that the tree was glittering in the sun that had just peeked its head up to say “good morning!” I leaned in to get a closer look, wondering how on earth this beautiful old elder, rooted in the ground, could possibly be so sparkly. As I looked with excitement, I noticed little tiny snails all over the tree. In fact, one had crawled onto my finger to fill me in on a little secrete, er um secret . . .
He told me that the “slime” we tend to turn our noses up at is really a constant labor of love that he and his kin are constantly applying out of their adoration of the Faeries, Sprites, Elves, and other forest creatures, especially the Faerie Godmother because she’s allergic to commercial glitter, don’t you know!
This is just a little tasty morsel of this card reading. More is available, including meditations, in the Go Ask Alice Oracle & Tea Party Game set, which will be available soon.
