Paper Beats Rock

Paper (Earth energy)

Scissors (Water energy)

Pencil (Wind energy)

Rock (Fire energy)

Paper beats rock but scissors and pencil beat paper. Water and Wind erode Earth. But Earth (the creation source) can beat rock (the destruction source). Rock beats scissors and pencil too. Dams are rock that block water. Writers are stopped by concrete prisons.

Paper beats rock. If you’re an earth sign – Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn…find Earth friends that help you build mountains. Stay away from the other elementals, especially Fire which will destroy you fast. Water can cultivate and nurture you, but a river can slowly erode Earth and cut through it. Water does this by necessity. Stagnant non-moving water is unhealthy so water must move but the continual in and out of the relationship with water, causes Earth signs to slowly erode over time. Wind breaks down Earth one pebble at a time, slow suffering, and just like a witty, barbarous writer that writes awful passive aggressive things about another person. Wit is lecherous and unkind and slow-moving Earth is too dimwitted or too shocked to react to the fast Wind energy.

If you are an Earth sign, be like Diogenes the Cynic or Jean Jacques Rousseau. Be a happy hippy, a flower child. Plant gardens. Grow things. Put herbal wreaths on your entrance way for protection. Find your happiness by withdrawing from the system and return to nature. Nature is your source and feeds you. Animals are your friends. People who are Wind, Fire, or Water signs will only wear you down.

Earth people…….where are my people? Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo.

We are creators. We are the builders. We are the healers. We are green energy. Tree energy. Life force. Abundance. We are the Emmetts in Lego Story. We build. We nurture. We cultivate. We are empaths.

We are the blessing.

Earth angels.

Return to the trees. The trees are our friends. They are the Ents that fight rock and stone….Isengard. A wizard should know better than to cut us down and turn good things into orcs (rocks).

Paper beats rock.

The Ents are going to war.

If you are an earth sign, connect to nature, tap into tree energy, meditate with source, meditate in forests, learn green magic, learn about herbs and oils and all natural things. Learn to heal others and by healing them, you heal yourself. You heal the planet.

Paper beats rock.

I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees.

I am Elphaba, the green witch. I am the one you were taught was wicked who is not.

I speak for the Tree of Life.

I am the sad clown that makes others smile.

I am the Lorax throwing you my last acorn. What will you do with it? Plant it in good soil or plant it on rock to be washed away by rain or blown away by wind?

Do you understand or am I confusing you? My stories are riddles I suppose. I am a clown, a fool….that is what society says about me. Someone on the outside. A misfit. Disordered ramblings…..but are they really disordered?

Jesus told stories too. He hung out with the misfits. He called his stories parables on the mysteries of life. My stories mean more to those who understand.

Try to understand or don’t if you won’t. Free will. Some understand. Others willfully do not.

Wilfull ignorance.

It’s your choice.


Author: J. Speer

I like to write. I have 5 books currently on Amazon, mostly fiction. I try to write positive and uplifting children's stories, expressive poetry for women, and interesting articles about personal growth, alternative medicine, and spirituality. My stories are often about diverse people but with human connection in mind through inner perspective. I love my characters especially the ones from my first book, Searching for Fire. I moved recently to Vermont. I live in the North Country region near Lake Willoughby, one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. My heart will always be with Kansas but I love travel and meeting new people with diverse perspectives on life. I have found Vermonters to have many admirable qualities like stoicism and a love and stewardship of nature. My hobbies are writing, gardening, outdoor activities like kayaking, fishing, and hiking. I am an amateur herbalist. Many years ago, an alternative medicine doctor cured me of a respiratory illness by teaching me about vitamins and for that, I owe her a debt of gratitude. I recently bought a Jeep Wrangler that fits my personality and love for adventure. Associated with the military in my younger years, I have lived in Israel, Germany, and Virginia as well - all of which I loved in different ways. I thoroughly believe in the military spouse phrase, "bloom where you are planted" and endeavor to carry a positive optimism wherever I roam. Most days are good but admittedly I get down sometimes. I am prone to sadness or severe cynicism at times, so I turn to music as my consolation and source of expression or inspiration. My favorite songs currently are "How Deep is Your Love" by the Beegees, "La Vie en Rose", "A Million Dreams" or maybe Karen Carpenter singing "Close to You" or Elton John singing "Your Song." I also like "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us" by Starship or "I'll Stand by You" by The Pretenders. "Faithfully" by Journey always reminds me of rollerskating with friends in the 1980s. My favorite quotes are from the Velveteen Rabbit, Steve Jobs, and this one..."To the caterpillar it was the end of the world, but to the butterfly it was merely a beautiful beginning." Or there is the quote from Peter Pan teaching Wendy..."What if I fall? But, oh my darling, what if you fly?" I also believe in being a pearl - graceful on the outside but full of grit and gratitude on the inside. My favorite women of the Bible are Ruth, Hannah, and Hagar. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Cheers, friend.
