I just encountered “A Rider Named Death” by Salvador Dali when I checked my social media account.
Death in this world is thought as the end of life, the end of everything, scary things…it is describe with not positive words, I think.
But, in The Traditional Rider Tarot Deck, the death card represents more like “good-bye to Old and hello to New” and not really real physical death. So, it is transitioning time with hope, when you see the death card in your tarot reading. Every day we have night to end our day, then, morning to start new day.
So, when I see the painting of Dali, I immediately thought this is what we have been experiencing now. Many people say we have “New Normal”. Yes, I agree. We need to change some lifestyle to adjust, but unfortunately, some parts of human being still continue what we did in the past like throwing garbages on the streets, on the beach, not care about others and our natures, discriminate people etc. Do we want to continue this to our future? Do we want to pass theses on to our children?
In the painting, we can see a rainbow. Rainbow represents God’s promise as many of you already know.
Let’s think again what we want to bring to our future and our children, because this is the transitioning and transformational time that God gives us to all.
Have a great day!
