Every so often, we come to the end of a way of thinking, reaching the end of a road made up of mind and thought. As we live, we go through different iterations of ourselves, and pass through varying methods of relating to reality, to our own being, and to others. The 8 of Swords and 10 of Swords in a reading announce that a closing is near. The present way of thinking about the world is reaching its fulfillment, and we no longer fit in its paradigms. The current state of our mind is ripe for death and begging to be born again. What precipitates the end of this journey, with the 8 of Swords, is that we once again, for the millionth time, realize we are in a tight cocoon of our own mind’s making. We have had the realization of our self-imposed limitations so many times before, yet here we are again. Worry not, for this awakening turns the key and opens the gate. From here on, the horseman comes for the harvest. This cycle is ready for collection. This vessel is ready for destruction so that it may be remade again. So is the reality of life and its ever-returning spirals of renewal. In awe at the sheer power of this truth, we lay down our thoughts at the altar of the spirit. Today, we know nothing. Arriving at this juncture, we are empty. My thoughts mean nothing, my mind is blank and my heart is receptive. Thank you for the path so far. Blessings to the new road ahead.
