Originally made of stone and later metal, an Anchor (when deployed) prevents a craft from drifting due to the forces of wind and water.
When used in the shelter of an inlet or harbor an Anchor keeps you relatively secured to one place, preventing your boat from running aground or getting damaged against a rocky shore. But should an Anchor get deployed while traveling between destinations you’ll find all forward progress severely hampered (if not prevented altogether).
Which means, there’s a proper time and a place for using an Anchor.
In this lifetime, the Anchor to your particular story is your ego. Put together by memory, tradition and identification it helps to give you a sense of stability in an ever changing (and changeable) world. But be ever mindful that the ego, left to its own devices, can drown out all other voices.
The Anchor comes to remind you that you already have everything in place to weather any storm. The key is to not remain stuck in one place or too attached to what no longer serves.
“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than those you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
~ Mark Twain
Some questions to guide your meditation:
- Are you future-directed or do you tend to dwell on the past?
- What “anchors” might be holding you stuck in same rut or routine?
- Do you find it difficult or challenging to “sail away” from your comfort zone?
- If you currently feel unsettled or “lost at sea” by the “stormy weather” in your life, what steps might you take to achieve more stability?
