The Thoth-THREE OF CUPS: Abundance
Mundanely the 3 of Cups card represents
emotional abundance, joy, celebration, and sharing the wonder of life.
This card represents a sharing experience and can represent the flowing of love and
positive feeling toward three significant people in your life. Also
Sharing pleasure together, having fun with others.
pomegranate cups represent
the fruit of Persephone to whom, along with
Demeter, the card is attributed since abundance of Spring and the flowing
emotional love of the Great Nurturing Mother, as the 3rd Sephiroth,
Binah-Understanding, rules this card.
Because this Cup
card is a Nurturing Three, it can represent the conclusion of a happy
matter; even a healing of wounds. There is a sense that it is important
to enjoy the moment of rejoicing for there is hard work ahead. The 3 of
Cups represents a "grace period", and in fact, the Waite deck shows
three dancers [the Graces] to explain this theme and shown in this ancient Pompeii wall mural.
the 3 of Cups, is an all around pleasant, positive card that quickly
flows into another state (the Fours) and is to be enjoyed and celebrated
now rather than in the future. This is always true with "overflowing"
emotion that fills the three vessels of your Psyche (Spirit,
unconscious, consciousness). Just "go with the flow" as is often said,
is not about following the crowd, but rather about releasing that inner
creative emotion ( which flows as water) called Passion and let it start
"painting" new images of you, for you.
The Three of Cups
reminds us that as Spirit
, we are E-Motion (energy in motion), resulting from the flowing Passion of
Chokmah (Father God) and Binah (Mother God) in communion. This Collective flow has created us
as their Passion made image of "I AM ME"; the symbol of the pentagram, which is the four elements of Alchemy and the fifth element-Spirit.
may have noticed that when you are passionately focused on what you are
doing, that you experience a flow of timelessness, and often find that
many hours went by so quickly that it felt like minutes to you. That is
the flow of Abundance, responding to absolute focus (Mind, Body and Soul all focused at once) although this focus is momentary, blissful moments can be
created with every movement of inner expression flowing outwardly. Every motion can be
your creative skills towards impassioned work. Meaningful, impassioned work, is
relative to the individual, and is notice by that individual as the
abundant flow of timelessness. For the Passionate Will to Be, was long before time/space were invented. There is a word for this focused passion, and it is Meditation! Every act, every movement, can be a meditation and therefore made meaningful. Peeling potatoes, driving your car, baking a cake, woodworking etc. Just pay absolute attention to that action, and think nothing else!
experienced by being true to yourself
, and not seeking approval from
some imagined authority. You, by your own inner definitions, are the
author of your-self. The Psyche is the only real authority over you. Your emotionally powered definitions become your "Energy Presence", balanced or imbalance, in this dimension of crystallized
thought. Thus is the
"burden" freedom of choice.
Your Divine Parents, The Divine Creative
thinks you are good enough to be the expressed Passion of Divinity and
in this flow of Divine Frenzy, of passion, is the knowledge
of you. The thoughtless focus
where time seems to stand still, is the place of our creative
inheritance; our bliss. Those who love what they do, experience the
positive flow of abundance daily. After all, a day is but a moment of movement.
Meaningful emotion, feels good and is pleasing.
Great rewards for doing meaningful work that leads to even greater
rewards of abundance! Love is a boundless energy flow, not a thing that
happens to us, but rather a flow that is the Divine Us! We may have "met the enemy
and it is us", but we have also met the Lover and it is also Us! I am the
love of you----is not just a nice thought. It is the I am of spirit expressing
you into manifestation, i.e. a Me!
