Probably the most important property or characteristic of Rope is that it can be easily tied.
This makes it perfect for attaching it to some “thing” in order to accomplish a task, like pulling 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 weighs us down or saps our strength, leaving us with little time for ourselves.
Right now the Rope comes to you 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 us to honor our commitments to others. Provided, of course, that the agreements we 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.
The Rope comes to remind you 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 from which you’d like to cut yourself loose?
- Are you finding yourself “stretched too thin” by your commitments?
