I was at a workshop on Saturday, and something one of the students said got me thinking about a concept that’s come up in past spiritual classes I’ve taken: the idea that your body’s cells completely replace and recycle themselves over the course of 7 years.
(N.B.: This isn’t precisely true, though it’s a potent metaphor, and one that is linked in some ways to scientific reality.*)
And as I thought briefly about this concept of 7-year cycles in human life, it hit me like a ton of bricks.
‘That’s why my year is off to such a start!’
