Don't Pity the Fool, Love It

This is from Rob Brezsny's Free Will Astrology.

"Declare amnesty for the part of you that you don’t love very well. Forgive that poor sucker. Hold its hand and take it out to dinner and a movie. Tactfully offer it a chance to make amends for the dumb things it has done. And then do a dramatic reading of this proclamation by the playwright Theodore Rubin: "I must learn to love the fool in me--the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my fool."

It's for Scorps but really--something for everyone here. And the Fool, in tarot according to a Web site I looked up, is about infinite possibilities and going out into the world and enjoying the experience. Just pay attention and don't get so lost in your dreams or you may fall over a cliff. Ouch.
