The age-old war between good and evil within you is over, and evil lost. From now on, the forces of beauty, truth, love, and justice will grow in power.
The last few years have actually been quite rough, in their way. Progress has been hard to come by, and minimal gains have required big efforts. More than once I've felt lost and adrift, not knowing where to go next or what I should be doing. I've had years of false starts and backtracking. It hasn't been without victories -- I've found some things and people whose value, I think, will only be fully revealed over coming years. But it's been a long, slow, difficult slog up this mountain.
But I think maybe -- maybe -- the summit is in sight. In recent months, even though there have been no dramatic changes, my own headspace has been gradually improving. The terrain's getting a little easier, and while I'm still not sure of my destination, and I know I've still got some ground to cover before I get there, the cosmos seems to be throwing me a few more markers along the trail -- "go that way." I don't know where it is I'm going, but it's reassuring to think that there might really be a "there" there after all.
Or maybe it's just circles and circles. Have I been here before?
PS: I'm a complete sucker for Family Circus remixes. I can't get enough of them, no matter how pretentious they are. Here's today's new find: The Nietzche Family Circus. I don't know how it works, but it does. |
