Daily Draw = Grief

 Draw: Grief

Message: "Tears are what happens when the ice melts."

This card had an anatomical heart front and center. It is outlined by a light blue, almost teal icy field and then has shapes around the boarder. Some appear to be birds in flight, others the dharma wheel. The heart is our center. Through it, we express love and pain. There are medical confirmations that a person can die of a broken heart. No other symptoms, just the loss of someone dear to them to literally cause their heart to break and they do not recover. Our heart is capable of wonderous and horrendous things.

Our hearts can be warm and full of love. We can give to others, express empathy and joy. Our hearts can swell with emotion for all mankind. It can also be distant and alone. It can be hurtful and cause pain to others like no other weapon on this earth.

Fear, Sadness, and pain are the main reasons hearts freeze. We forget why we used to love a person. We are shocked into realizing the love we gave was not reciprocated. Our hearts often freeze to a point that even though we still love someone, the day to day grind ices it over and we forget to share that love. Then, they are gone. Our hearts break, and our love comes out as tears.

Grief is a powerful emotion. We grieve for those who have left this world as well as for the love, compassion and companionship lost. Grief can remind you of good as well as bad. Grief is healing. Grief opens the doors to allow you to grow and love again. When we pull this card we're reminded that grief is not permanent. It is a part of life. We are sad for our loss, but loss is attachment. We must overcome attachment and understand, happiness is only attainable in the present, our hearts will heal.
