ONE MONTH

 

Spring – Month 1

 

Spring?  What a joke!  How is this the time of new beginnings when I am still stuck staring into a white abyss of snow-covered plains?  Even the animals are hiding from the freezing temperatures and rarely come out to play.  I have, however, spent the few good days this past month walking laps around the strange field that has started appearing as of late.

 

I’ve almost forgot about the power of nature.

 

On that note, I have been very busy researching a number of the more…esoteric sources of knowledge I have access to.  My first bit of that knowledge was a record I found titled Spells for the Solitary Witch by Eileen Holland.  In this record, the author introduced me to the concepts of magick and belief, as well as the powers of the elements and nature.  I feel as though I have only scratched the surface of this knowledge and look forward to learning more.  As such, I have also found another record titled Tarot for Beginners by Meg Hayertz and the concept of a tarot deck’s power and usefulness is quite appealing to me.

 

Breaking away from “forbidden” knowledge, I have also found a self-taught resource which has been teaching me how to draw.  Seemingly a product of ancient scholastics, I found an entire collection of readings, exercises, and skills that allow me the opportunity to learn and add to my own toolset.  This particular collection emphasizes self-reflection as well, so it has been a very rewarding experience so far.  I have only just started, but my first drawing assignment was simply a demonstration of my lack of skill, so I drew a simple vase.  Next, I had to draw an optical illusion which was actually either a vase or two faces, depending on perspective.  My final assignment was writing a letter to my future self detailing my fears & concerns about this collection.  Overall, it will certainly be an interesting way to pass the time.

 

In the big picture of life, I always thought it was important to work hard to accomplish the goals {others} have decided to impose… Now, I am beginning to feel like, not only is this a lie, but actually a form of suffocation and control.  I want to do anything and everything I {personally} set my mind to, pursue the dreams and aspirations I alone have set my sights on that is another reason why I decided to write these journals, to reflect on my life so far and what paths I choose to follow in the future.  My life so far has been mundane and unrewarding, full of stress and sadness.

The time has come for change.
