Mercury is direct again and with it comes a little more peace and clarity than the previous three weeks delivered. This is a relief and has me feeling better about life and myself in general. However, it’s not all figured out yet. The journey goes on.
Since last night when Mercury went direct, I have been thinking about this: the gift of broken-ness. I am not sure whether I was whole before I was born, but I think the broken-ness began with birth. Then, like a ceramic bowl dropped on the floor, I was broken and mended, over and over. And the cycle continues this way. My guess is that this holds true for most living beings, too. From our broken-ness, we get to re-create ourselves and our lives. In this, there is a gift, an evolution of the spirit and a deeper awareness of the great mystery of life.
