Wow! Who’s this guy?? Dire straits and a real mess, this one!
You’ve probably noticed the bare butt hanging out of his jester’s leggings and his matching (?) jester’s hat. There’s a lynx hanging onto his leg with tooth and claw and a very interested crocodile about to grab the other leg. His sack is very full, but of what, we don’t know. Were you as surprised as I to see the tie with his shirt? And did you notice that his shoes don’t match?
He’s been travelling through a desert and it seems to have gotten the best of him. His tongue is hanging out of the side of his mouth and his position implies an extremely unbalanced gait. Everything’s leaning to the right, the rational side. But this dude doesn’t look even remotely rational.
Do you ever have days like that? Days when you can’t get it together and you’ve got problems nipping at your heels while you walk into a big-ass mess, all while you’re completely depleted, with no resources around you.
Or is this guy out of resources? That big sack on his left shoulder, his intuitive side, sure is full of something. And that’s just where 0 The Fool tells us to look: within, to our still, small voice.
Last time we looked at 0 The Fool, he wasn’t in such dire straits. Sometimes it seems this is the human condition. We’ve leaned too hard on our thinking mind and now we’re being asked to use that great store of internal treasure to get us out of the mess we’re in.
So where are you feeling bone dry and all et up with problems? This is your opportunity for a new adventure. Start by opening your personal rucksack right where you are, before you take another step. What’s in there? Remember, this isn’t about your rational self, this is about your innocent internal self. Let go of your concern with the outer world and go within for your next lead.
Who knows, you might find you can fly!
