“You can’t judge a Book by its cover.” Or so the saying goes.
But if you think about this oft-repeated line for a moment, isn’t it the cover’s job to announce to a potential reader what a particular Book is about in terms of theme and genre?
Beyond simple convention, Books come with covers to both “protect” the interior pages while, at the same time, helping you to identify a given Book among a “sea of others” by virtue of a prominently displayed title and relevant cover design.
Clearly, then, a cover gives you some idea about what to expect with respect to an individual Book.
Of course, that’s only part of the story. Because until you “crack it open” and actually start reading through those pages you’ll never gain anything from it. And you’ll never know for certain if the Book in your hand is a good one.
All of which points out the obvious… any unread “Book” in your life is, at best, an opportunity to possibly enjoy the story or learn something new. Something unexplored. At worst, an unread “Book” is nothing more than a mere decoration as it collects dust on some forgotten shelf.
Today the Book lands in your lap to implore you that the learning is in the “doing.” In the looking. In diving deep into those pages to read not only the words, but to read between the lines as well.
And sometimes this means an exploration of your “shadow” side.
Admittedly, this can be unsettling. Scary, even. But the full story can only come to light in the process of (self) discovery by consciously “cracking open” what’s presented to you and taking a closer look. Not to worry, though, because like any well written story if you apply yourself it will all work out for you in the end.
“The unexamined life is not worth living.”
- Hidden motives
Some questions to guide your meditation:
- What secrets are you keeping?
- Do you like to research or “dig deeper” until you find out the truth?
- Is there a topic you would like to learn more about or some course of study you would like to pursue?
- Is there some insight or discovery that might be ready to emerge which you’ve been putting “on hold” or refusing to acknowledge?
