Daily Draw: Twilight, Gunther (Weakness), and Snotra (Virtue)

Today is a good day for contemplation, my friends, or if you don’t have time for a good sit and think, then at least give yourself a few deep breaths as you’re running errands, doing chores, and otherwise getting things done. There is a balance in effect between standing firm in your convictions and collapsing into a shuddering heap of “give up and die.” Twilight is that time when it’s neither light nor dark. The day isn’t over yet, but night hasn’t begun yet either. You’re at a tipping point and can be pushed either way, into virtue or into ignominy. Don’t stress out too much if you feel like you’re falling into failing; a few small failures don’t mean you are a Golgothan Shit Demon. You have powerful allies on your side, and your ancestors are helping you more than you can know. Life is long (not just this one little life right now, but all the lives you’ve lived and all the lives you will live after this one). The critical thing is to not give up, even if you feel like you’re failing, and even if you have proof that you’ve failed. It’s ok. If you’re going through hell, as Winston Churchill once said, keep going. Don’t stop in failure. Keep moving toward virtue, and let yourself be guided by your own inner light. Oh, and while you’re going through hell, be really careful of what you pick up. That stuff has a way of sticking to you and you have to be careful.
