Cycles

Cycles

We often perceive our lives as a linear journeys, in which we attain knowledge, become wiser, grow older, deal with more. But sometimes I feel that our lives are more cyclical, like the seasons. That certain cycles repeat themselves over time. That throughout life, we enter cycles that we somehow feel we have already been through. Situations we recognize, people that we said goodbye reappearing in our lives, mistakes that we make again, remembering a time you thought was long gone, similar pains that you have gone through before. And you feel that, again, you have to start at the beginning completely. Learn again. Start anew, even though you identify with the thought that you knew how to deal with it. When you identify with a certain image of yourself, and realize none of it is real. It can be a confrontation. And you wonder, where this is all coming from? You finally give in, give it your best, stay strong, be humble and go through it. That the situation is fine as it is. riding the journey as it is. Surrender to it, be humble to it. Fall, and stand up. It creates a window of opportunity. And it matters what you do in that small window. Then, sooner, or possibly later, new cycles will come. After all, winter almost turns into spring here anyway, where things will flourish.
