The time is right to look within and explore the terrain of our hearts and minds, while inspecting the bridges that link us to others. Spending more time with certain people and less with others is causing many of us to reconsider the topography of our lives before Covid and to make decisions as to how the map will look when we eventually re-emerge.
Although many of our vacation plans are temporarily on hold, discovery and excitement are still available. Being homebound can inspire us to dive to the depths of our lifelong patterns, challenges, and mysteries. Journaling, interpreting dreams, and talking with a deep and active listener can open doors that lead to previously undiscovered rooms, passageways, and foreign lands.
Many people find themselves with a multitude of opportunities to heighten their communication skills through dealing with intimates much more directly than was previously possible or necessary. Learning about ourselves and each other, as well as developing skills to speak and listen with an open heart, can bring our relationships to places we didn't realize were on the map.
Some difficult journeys feel safer with an experienced guide. Even when we strike out into unfamiliar territory alone, it can be nice to encounter another adventurer along the path to share stories, ask questions, and gain insight or advice to make the trip more successful and pleasant. However approached, the journey itself is worth the effort and something will be learned, regardless of the destination.
