IX The Hermit


The Hermit

IX The Hermit represents a time of aloneness. Albeit the hermit is slow footed, he is most certainly sure footed, as each stride he takes is taken with certainty.  The Hermit understands the concept that every of his actions is followed by subsequent consequences.  He acts with deliberation with everything he does, thinks, and utters.  Having chosen a path of seclusion, the hermit has distanced himself from the strife of the outside world, allowing himself to bond with his Creator, and thereby follow his path to enlightenment.

In his left hand, representing the Hermit's sub conscious, he carries with him a staff, which represents Higher Spiritual Authority and Power as seen by priests, saints and the papacy.  In his right hand he carries with him a lantern, which represents his inner enlightenment, thereby signifying his means of guidance.The hermit represents a time of meditation, contemplation, and resignation from the outside world.  He judges none, and thereby cannot be judged for his anti-social behavior, as his path is that of enlightenment, and not of man.
Meditation:

Matthew 6:6 But you, when you pray, enter into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and our Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.  

Do I realize that there is a significant difference between being alone, and being lonely?
Am I taking enough time from the rat race in order to meditate and reconnect with my higher being?
