11/8/12—Learning Something New

Today's Draw: The Hermit from the Collective Tarot. What new thing did you learn about life today? What did you learn about yourself? And what did you intuit today?

The Hermit is a solitary seeker of inner truth, introspective and wise. She learns something new from every interaction and every experience in her life. She sees more than is evident, noticing the subtleties of life. 

I've always felt a particular connection to the Hermit. I'm a lone wolf, after all. And an inner journeyer. I like to look for the lessons of life. 

I believe that every day we learn something new....not just about life in general, but about ourselves as well. Today one of my life lessons was that it takes a lot more roux to thicken a cream soup than I had imagined. I read a recipe for a rule of thumb, then doubted what I read and ended up with thin soup. 

I've also recently learned that people from your past that you're curious about will somehow pop back into your life in the most interesting and surprising ways. In the past week or so, four people from my past have either resurfaced in my life personally or through the words of someone else. It's interesting how you can go years without "bumping into" someone from the past and then, BAM, they're on you like flies. :D

About myself, I learned a few things. I learned where I was on the whole "caring what others think" thing. And I'm still not as far along as I'd like to be. And I realized really how persistent I can be about something I want. There's something I've been pursuing for years without any discernible progress, yet I keep attacking it in new ways hoping for a breakthrough. What I've learned/realized is that I'll never give up, even the battle I'm waging is against myself. 

Because The Hermit sheds light on dark or unseen things, I'm also going to comment on a psychic thing that happened today. I pre-ordered something months ago and had no way of knowing when the package would ship or arrive at my house. But today I was thinking to myself, "it seems about time I should get that package." And the mailman came and went and I thought, "odd, for some reason I though I'd get that today." Then a few minutes later, there was a knock on the door and the mailman had the package. I mean, of course I was "expecting" a package...sometime, like, in November or so. But like I said, I had no idea it even shipped, much less would arrive today. So I was pretty proud of that spark of intuition. 

So what about you? What did you learn today?
