The Tower card is showing up and with it, the smell of fire and burning wood is in the air. Destruction is a hard process to accept. When I see this card, I think of the song "Break it down again" by Tears for Fears.
"Break it down again. No more sleepy dreaming.
No more building up, it is time to dissolve....When its all mixed up, better break it down..They make no mention of the beauty of Decay..."
The picture of the Tower is about how a belief system, thought process, or relationship may go through a phase of destruction. Breaking down all walls, doors, and rooftops. Destruction is not a horrible process, but a pleasant one. Without destruction we would not have growth. This is not a time to build up anymore, it is time to dissolve everything and anything that is holding us back.
What is holding you back?
What do you need to dissolve?
There really is beauty in Decay. For you may find out the truth within the process.
There are times when we must destroy what we have built up, with our own two hands. Like a child we must allow our self to be frustrated. To kick and scream. To destroy the very blocks we have built our life on.
In the movie Forest Gump, we see this act of outburst, when Jenny returns home. The house is abandoned but ghosts still reside within. She if upset. This is her Tower. Her belief system. She begins to pick up rocks and proceeds to throw them at the house. A window shatters and she begins to cry. Destruction can be simple. This his her destruction. Now she must pick up the pieces in her life and move forward, but the breaking down of her past, must take place.
No more sleepy dreaming.
