The Hermit

The Hermit

It was surprising to hear Trevor Noah, in a recent interview say he was "Made for social distancing. This is how I wish I could live life - being forced to stay indoors ....I'm in heaven"


The Hermit shown on Tarot cards is a perfect fit which is why I used it in creating this photo. In his hand, the Hermit holds a lantern - a symbol of wisdom. As the Hermit walks his path, the lamp lights his way – but it only illuminates his next few steps rather than the full journey. Many of us are wondering what the future will look like and how will we need to change? This can be a paralyzing thought because how can we possibly know how things will unfold ?


The Hermit shows us that we can also relax into knowing that we only need to take the next few right steps forward. 


Oprah concurs - "The way through the challenge is to get still and ask yourself, 'What is the next right move? And then, from that space, make the next right move and the next right move."


What is the easiest next right move we can take while hermiting from home today ?
