13 Ash – 1 March.

A youth too big for his boots retires to lick his wounds.

Hubris is a constant sword of Damocles hanging over our heads. The early stages of new growth can lead us to believe we are further along the path than we actually are. Today’s Symbol is a reminder to that effect. Check your assumptions, let go of any thoughts of superiority and, more particularly, any thoughts of spiritual purity.We are all on our own journeys and must honour both our journey but that of others. This is critical to our growth. The Symbol highlights the dangers of not so doing. We have, I am sure, all been the youth too big for his boots and many stages in life so we know, viscerally, what this Symbol is telling us. Review is the key to this day, review and humility.
