The Storms of Life

For the next few months, I will choose a card from the African American Tarot deck as a prompt for my blog posts. Let’s see what spiritual insight I come up with!

The Tower-Storms of Life

Most of us, if not all of us, has experienced a Tower moment. A moment in which we are devastated by a sudden change or loss. One such moment occurred for me during Hurricane Sandy. I had just returned from vacationing in South Beach. I went from sunbathing on the Southeastern coast to living without basic necessities such as water and electricity.

The tower brings with it the harsh reality that change is the only constant in life and that change sometimes takes us far away from our comfort zones.

The tower says no to stagnation.

The tower causes movement whether we are ready or not.

The tower clears away all that stands on a faulty foundation.

Tower moments are daunting but they are also empowering. Tower moments give you the opportunity to see what you are made of. Tower moments allow us to see the great fragility and resilience of humanity. Ultimately, the tower will make us better, stronger.  

Eeeepa Oya!
