In the cold of February, we feel the shift from the calm, serene moons of the beginning of the year to the tumultuous, turbulent Storm Moon. Naturally, the latter becomes harder to see and we find ourselves in exactly that-a stormy, tumultuous period.
In the midst of the resulting fog, we find ourselves in a place where we can’t quite see everything around us, which requires a certain type of conviction and faith to know what’s actually there. This is something we can easily be told, but no amount of advice and no expert compares to the experience of investigating and truly discovering the truth for oneself.
As human beings, it is in our nature to share our wisdom and even our beliefs with each other. And among us, there are those whose words seem to move us more than others and whose advice we follow. But, in another regard, we are also fully functioning, capable and intelligent beings whose beliefs and minds are solely our own. In the end, while we can be inspired by others, it is always up to us to select the path that feels true to ourselves.
