Quick Sketch by Spiral-0ut
Quick Sketch
Drew this while people watching at a diner.  A couple of the animals could be better, but I started out with just a few squiggly lines..this is what it morphed into.  And since I'm completely ADD, I didn't finish it either.

I'm roughly 11,322 days old on this hostile planet we call Earth. Trying to keep afloat in the oppressive state of things. Using art as a form of escapism (at least temporary), to bring me back to those astral and cosmic realms I love to visit so often. Yes, I'm a dreamer...an entertainer of the random and obscure.

I'm metaphysical, mystical, downright temperamental. I rhyme divine in this great divide, as I try my hardest to slip inside....this vast reality I have set out before me. Traverse this great territory, won't you join me?

So, I've been doing a lot of free writing lately, and I am these passages have been the inspiration for my oracle card set.  While I am merely passing along the depths of my subconscious, I still believe that there are valid points within the ramblings.  Sharing seems like something I should do, so don't mind the flow...

EGO

The most powerful of all the visceral fates.  Tied to vanity, false success and lack of empathy, Ego is, by far the most driven aspect of the human mind.  Ego can bring even the mightiest of any to their knees.  Cold, calloused, relentless and selfish brand the ego as a mar upon the bearer.  Ego is a form of armor.  A defense between 'the world' and 'yourself'.  It is, in all mannerisms, a hindrance to progression.  The amount of disadvantages far outweigh any advantage of keeping ego as an unchecked power of the Self.  Selfishness is an act of survival to the ego and coexisting is not something to be considered.  Ego creates the false persona of "me", which is an illusion cast upon the carrier.  

Yet, we do not want to completely eliminate ego, for it is a valid and integrated part in the very human aspect of ourselves.  It must constantly be maintained, a balance kept, Ego subdued and tapped upon when survival is necessary.


VANITY


Immersed in the image of ones outer self, absorbed in the aura of ones own achievements, drunk on the ego that is constantly fed.  Vanity...beauty is in the eye of the beholder, where one holds themselves above all others, simply for reasons of aesthetics and talents. 

Vanity is a component of Ego.  A piece of the false armor we adorn in our current states.  This armor is comprised of various pieces that we forge during our journey of life and existence.  Some wear the mask of beauty, while in reality they decay behind the iron-clad layer they so thoroughly relied upon for protection.

Admonishing these relics is the only way to progress forward in ones own journey of existing.  Only after we remove these ancient binds can we truly be free.  Do not fall prey to the weakness, you are always stronger than it.  Knowing this can bring forth movement, movement brings forth vibration...the release from this prison.
