Beautiful Crone Soul Collage  
This is my latest soul collage card. I made it to shed some light on my fear of aging. Day by day, I notice the changes in my body that are resulting from growing older. Almost all of them seem ugly to me - my skin, my hair, my body shape, even my fatigue. Very often, when I look in the mirror, I see a reflection of unloveliness. It's a heavy, self-inflicted energy drain, but there is an important gap between recognizing such a thing and coming to terms with it -- taking it into the heart, digesting it, using it as another way to grow and to develop awareness of the freedom that is already true, already present.

I cannot write about this card in any coherent manner now. The images have their own language and they speak clearly to me. Some fragments: light from within that shines through the eyes; the wingspan of a bird, the suchness of that, the air, the seeming nothingness of the air that supports the bird's flight; the feather, a symbol of positive energy and healing; that feather attached to a raft in clear water. It will guide the raft as it moves through the shallows, around the jetty and into the open water. The tulips are fresh, alive, completely what they are and nothing more or less than what they are, and that is absolutely sufficient.
