Rumi tells a wonderful story about how the Queen of Sheba, when she visited King Solomon, wanted to impress him, and so she brought with her 40 camels laden with gold. When she arrived in his kingdom, however, she saw that all the streets (even the humble ones) were paved with gold. Solomon said to her, "I do not need any of your gifts. All I need from you is to be worthy of the million gifts I will shower upon you."
When the eyes of Love really open in us, we see that life is an unbroken stream of ordinary miracles and that just to be alive is a matchless reward.
This family of rewards, then, celebrates the gold thread of blessings that run through Life's red and black carpet and invites us always to keep our hearts in a state of adoration.
When Sheba saw how much the King loved her, an infinite love for him started to grow in her heart, and to lead her to the Palace of Eternal Wisdom.
May these cards be signs on the map to that Palace and may each one of them glint with the mystery of Solomon's gold!
The further guidance of this card states:
"A dark and difficult period is now finally over. Express your joy!"
