There's a footprint from the past on this day on the Wheel of Time.✶ I felt it immediately upon awakening: anxious exploration of an unexpected environment. This is the exact spot on the wheel of time when three ships from the Netherlands, filled with weary travelers that had come to settle the Southernmost tip of Africa, dropped anchor in what came to be known as Table Bay. With trepidation, but a sense of gratitude for having survived the ferocious beating of wind and waves, they set out to establish a toehold amidst hostile circumstances in this strange land.
I can feel their angst, but also the inquisitiveness that is a trademark of human nature. And I am reminded that the adventurous perspective has always been an impetus for great courage.
Let us push the boundaries of our comfort zones in search of growth, and the rarest of all accomplishments: to turn the unknown into the known through experience.

Loved ❤️ "Let us push the boundaries of our comfort zones in search of growth, and the rarest of all accomplishments: to turn the unknown into the known through experience."
When the blood turned to wine and the soul-deep cry of mystical belief became just a silly hymn to sing one day a week, when men hired prophets to see their visions and shamans to search for their souls and scribes to tell them what to believe and priests to feed them cookies and juice, when it became easier to settle for ritual and take a dip in a baptismal pond than steal a drink from the bleeding heartbeat of the immortal river's source or dare to swim in the pool of genes that will suck down those who don't believe, that was the day the brute got his scythe and man gave up his chance for real life. That was the day Magic died.

How fun, thank you. 😀
Wow this really speaks to me. I just (temporarily) moved to Las Vegas from the SF Bay Area this past Friday (any OOs here?) I have been feeling trepidation and anxiety since then that I made a huge mistake. Although really I feel the Unknown and a sense of not-knowing what's next. I wish very much I could just embrace the Unknown more as an adventure instead of being scared by it.
