Do we need to exit the old to penetrate the new?

Do we need to exit the old to penetrate the new?

I was doing a meditation this evening with a tarot card that epitomizes a sense of completion: the World.

It is the last of the twenty-two major Arcana cards, yet, at the same time, it marks the beginning of a new cycle; a renewal if you will, and possibly the turning of the wheel of life.

The guided meditation asked to reflect on our achievements, our life journey thus far, something we would gently do at the end of a calendar year.

And it also required to look at the future, what our interests are, what projects we have in mind, and what we want to build, in various areas.

And thus the question above came, which is not really a question.

Simply because we are always both the old and the new, always searching for something we haven’t found in the old, unfinished “I”, a ‘something’ that, very fortunately, propels us forward;

Consciously or not so consciously; it doesn’t really matter.

What matters is that the seed of life is growing within each of us.

So let’s ponder this non-question at a time when our World might be totally transformed, completely turned around, and utterly reconstructed.

And let’s imagine for a second how we’re going to both penetrate and embrace the new.

Because the new will, very soon, be upon us.

About new desert

Nurturing the Gift of Seeking is about a spiritual "destination," a journey within, a new beginning, that eventually takes us where we are meant to arrive. Some call it Home, yet I am not sure what Home means, and where it is. Enjoy the journey, dear Ones! On this journey, what matters, first and foremost, is our seeking spirit. And the seed of perseverance--or faith, if you will. Happy journey, dear fellow Sisters and Brothers!
