Bow Your Heads: The Joy Of Humility

I believe that there is a great power in humility. To be humble isn’t to know your place but rather to understand that there will always be someone better than you, someone with more knowledge than you. To truly understand and embrace this brings me great joy. To know that there will always be sources of knowledge for me to leech from is astounding to me. There is so much I don’t know but can, someday, know.

Faith, Courage, Hope

Hope: a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen
Courage: strength in the face of pain or grief or the ability to do something that frightens one
Faith: complete trust or confidence in someone or something

I believe that the above three are necessary for a good life. Hope is the springboard which leads to courage in that springboard the longer we’ve believed in it and courage is using all our wits to power through any discrepancies or challenges to our faith.

This is just a random thought I had, but it seems to hold true in my life.

Interpreting The Inner World

I’ve always found it strange that there are so many ways and books to interpret dreams and visions. I understand that some symbols are universal and thus have a set meaning but things like crabs meaning prosperity or finding “sideways” approaches to problems is what this little rant is about.

Different cultures have designate differing meanings to almost everything. On top of that, individuals have subconscious thoughts about certain symbols that might not match up with the “official” meaning.

Basically, this short rant is just an encouragement to those of you who enjoy dream and vision journaling to not let predetermined meanings hold you back. If your meanings differ from the “official” ones, then I encourage you to go with yours. You’ll be amazed how much deeper you can delve into your subconscious this way.
