"Forasmuch as I exalted thee out of the dust, and made thee prince over my People Israel; and thou hast walked in the way of Jeroboam, and hast made my people Israel to sin, to provoke me to anger with their sins..."
~ I Kings 16, verse 2
The first step, within the Fool's Journey, is the Fool. The wise among us realizes that this never changes: just the trappings do. And so when the wise Fool loses his coveted seat, he begins anew and seeks to reinvent himself. To learn from the most recent adventure and so arm himself for the next one.
At this beginning of beginnings, I recommend that you strap on your sandles and begin with the following rites:
- Healing to recover from that tragedy which beset you
- Road opening work
With those, we begin.
