Probably the most important property or characteristic of Rope is that it can be easily tied. Provided you’re skilled with knots.
This makes it perfect for attaching it to some “thing” in order to accomplish a task, like towing something that’s stuck or lifting up a heavy object. But you can also use a Rope to tie things together, such as a group of climbers who are secured to each other by a “lifeline” to keep them safe during the dangerous parts of their ascent.
All of which underscores the fundamental nature of Rope — that of connection.
Sometimes our “connections” are physical. But more often than not the “ties that bind” are emotional in nature. Too often we can get caught up in a “web of commitments” which can weigh us down or sap our strength, leaving us with little time for ourselves.
Today the Rope arrives with ONE important question for you to consider… what metaphorical (or metaphysical) “Ropes” are keeping you anchored in place or making you feel “tied up?”
Just as a group of climbers consciously agree to work together for a common goal, it’s important for you to honor your commitments to others. Provided, of course, that the agreements you enter into are not unduly one-sided or open ended. And though married couples are said to have “tied the knot” on their wedding day, those “bonds of love” can sometimes turn into “Ropes” of bondage after years of neglect or taking the other person for granted.
All of which underscores what the Rope is coming to remind you of… that it’s essential to be very careful about WHAT you promise to others, as well as to WHOM you make a promise.
- “Tied up in knots”
Some questions to guide your meditation:
- Do you find it difficult to say “no” to others?
- Is there a situation or relationship which you’d like to let go?
- Are you finding yourself “stretched too thin” by your commitments?
