“I come ever to the crossroads of my life.
I am ever choosing and ever being chosen.
This is my journey: engaged and affirmed.
This is my life: mysterious, exhilarating, taxing, joyous….”
Try saying or thinking this Tefist statement about life. Does it truly reflect your own life? If not, choose some different adjectives, ones that really do match your own experience. This Crossroads Creed can be spoken at many places: at the crisscrossing of hiking paths, or where busy hallways cross, or at roadway intersections. Or use it at any time or place where you can pause to reflect on a choice made, a decision finalized, the initiation of a new path in life, or even the preparation for dying.
The Vernal Equinox arrives (for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere) in a few days. For this event (as for the Autumnal Equinox in September) the following joke may be shared.
Q. When is a cow more like a horse?
A. When it’s an equine ox!
(If you wish to celebrate the Equinoxes, my brief liturgies for these Festivals may be useful. These can be found on this website by simply going to the Tefistry page, downloading Tefist Paths to Nature, and scrolling down to page 138 and beyond. May you have a joyous Equinox!)
