Wednesday 18th September 2019: 10 of Cups

What is it to live an abundant life? It is to be open to the appreciation of the blessings of the moment, and do be so moment by moment, to take delight in things be they never so little, just as we did when we were children. The sentiment is beautifully expressed in William Wordsworth’s poem, My Heart Leaps Up:

My heart leaps up when I behold 
   A rainbow in the sky:
So was it when my life began; 
So is it now I am a man; 
So be it when I shall grow old, 
   Or let me die!
The Child is father of the Man;
And I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety.

William Wordsworth, My Heart Leaps Up
