The one thing that has always been on the back burner. That thing, one day, if only … Pluck up the courage, time for that leap of faith.
The Fool is the fearless traveler on life’s journey. He is the rebel who dances to his own tune down the Royal Road of Tarot. Leaps before he looks, speaks without thinking. He is a catalyst, looks at situations as they are, has the courage to break out of the formula, says what needs to be said or pick up his knapsack & move on. The World may paint him as a Fool, his actions may be incomprehensible to normal thinking. Yet he is always ahead of the curve, escaping the humdrum, chasing the light.
Your inner Fool is waiting”
It’s a hard life playing the Fool. Even before he acts or speaks he knows that he will be knocked back or ridiculed. He just can’t help himself. He would rather be true to himself that live with limitations.
My inner Fool has dimmed slightly since my younger years. I look back in wonder at some of the things I’ve done, said, choices I’ve made. That’s why he was my first Tarot tattoo. I want him under my skin, the permanent child inside, I never want to completely lose touch with that reckless wanderer.
It’s the weekend, reconnect to your inner child. Live just outside of your limitations. Your inner Fool is waiting, are you ready to take a leap of faith?
Taking his hands away from his eyes The Fool locked my gaze, leaned towards me & whispered: “You have been given a pause, a second chance. I forever stand on the cliff edge, deciding whether to take a leap of faith, now it is you who cannot afford to not grasp this unprecedented opportunity. All bets are off, you have no choice but to have a go, take a chance. Don’t come out of this enforced reinvention unchanged, then it would be you who really is The Fool”
The Fool is the guardian of the unknown, the architect of your future. It begins, and ends, with him. Do not be drawn in by his madness, do not pity him. He is contented in this crazy world, he thrives in chaos. The question is, can you?
