Beginnings, like the process of taking birth, are always painful. You break the mould of the past to create something new. And it takes a lot out of you. And it requires a lot of letting go of.
But you carry on because like the clouds that have to keep moving, we have to keep walking in the journey of life. To stay put is to upset the passage of time, to stagnate, to lose touch.
Lord Ganesh is the god of new beginnings, the guardian of gateways and it’s apt that he is jolly and always adaptable, child-like and loving. You need to be in order to sustain the shock of change, of new beginnings. Here’s to new beginnings, to new journeys, to the unknown that beckons with open arms.
