Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.

      Indeed where would life be without the antagonist…the Trickster? You know, the one who trips up our plans only to behold life’s victories disguised in its failures. I guess we all have a bit of the lost boys in us as we ponder our inward travels on the night sea. For the path is truly like that of the ocean and her currents, waves, and storms as lightning taking thunder by the hand provides a hint in real time to an impending disaster or so we think.

      But it is only through our own personal Captain Hook or some of the other many disguises of the Trickster, that we might find our way at all. Such is the dark night of the soul as the villain is found to be the key master to the very doors of our own calling. A front to a deeper understanding. So have patients with this Jester, after all he is a result of something hidden deep within, of needs denied that will one day get their due.

The trickster’s function is to break taboos, create mischief, stir things up. In the end, the trickster gives people what they really want, some sort of freedom.

  3. A deep and soul searching post JC. The trickster can seem very cruel and hard to cope with but maybe neccessary for our growth.
    Without this need we would already have reached nirvana.
    I love the Tolle quote, so true.

    • Thank you Mirja, yes he’s quite a shady character and we’ve all had these types in our lives.But he’s on a mission, to fool us into understanding.
