The Wheel Keeps On Turning
When the wheel of life turns,
it could be signaling that a new journey or adventure is at hand. The wheel turning maybe an indication of change and/or tranformation. This is a time to look at where you are in your life's journey. Is this an end or the beginning of a journey? Is this where you are supposed to be?
This may be the moment in time when you strongly affect the lives of those around you. If your life is at a stalemate maybe it time to take a chance and spin the wheel for a little motivation, change or encouragement.
The natural cycles of the Earth maybe an example of how the wheel turns. The seasons may be used to mark these changes. Maybe now it's time to look at what current season you are in, in relationship to where you are in your journey or if you prefer...your quest. Maybe a change of scenery for a while would help? The changing of the seasons and the changing of your attitude go hand in hand? Changes are part of the natural cycle of the wheel. Why not look for these changes as inspiration? Look at what phase the moon is in right now in conjunction with your harmony of your surrounding. Coincidence? Maybe...if you believe in that kind of thing. Right?
Maybe now is the time to take inventory of the situation and decide what must be done? Is there something to be learned? Or, maybe something needed to be practiced? Maybe it's time for a change? Is it time to take a chance on something new....Maybe you should SPIN THE WHEEL?
On some larger scale the wheel may be an indicator that it is time for the passing of authority or to pass along the power from one person or place to another. The wheel reminds us that change is natural, and that fighting the motion of the wheel turning will only disrupt the natural balance your life's rhythm. It is the universe's way of suggesting that you become more flexible and fluid with life. Freedom lies within the motion of the wheel turning. Fighting by clinging on to what is no longer necessary just wastes energy. When the wheel is in motion, change is in the wind, and change is inevitable.
The change brought upon by the wheel turning, may be the manifestation of your goal. The journey of the search for your ideas, is your own journey in life. Again, a quest if you so wish to call it that. Remember, a true quest will lead you into the unknown. Possibly this is an inward journey, or maybe an outward quest. As the wheel turns on your journey, there will be challenges to overcome. Your journey teaches lessons on how to conquer the challenges that lie ahead.
Entering into an unknown territory there is always new knowledge to be found. As with any true quest, you will always encounter people along the way that have the wisdom, insihgt or the tools you need to help you find your way. Doors will be opened for you...if you are on your right path.
A journey can bring to you strength, endurance, and confidence. You may be instrumental in helping others find their way, for sometimes journeys can intersect. The quest may also show you the things in life that you should hold scared. Perhaps, by listing the things that are most important to you in your life would help you gain a little perspective about yourself. List carefully to see what is truly important to you in life. Studying your list may give you clues about the truth of the nature of who you are.
Maybe its time to point into a new direction, or change onto a new path? Look to the direction of the path that you might take, or to someone that may help you along the way.
Maybe its time time to get your bearings and think about where you are in relation to where you want to be. The wheel is turning. It maybe a signal that it is time to prepare for change.
Your new adventures may await you.
