Axiom 100: Symbolism & Rituals

Here we are at the 100th Axiom. I can't believe what a long journey it has been to get here. 100 is a milestone, right? Or is it just another number? 

Turns out it's both, and this leads us to today's lesson:

Many things in our lives are symbolic or ritualistic in nature. A college degree, a wedding anniversary, a Christmas tree, our favorite meal. The value can sometimes either be lost in the symbolism, and sometimes the value is the symbolism itself. It often goes against common sense why we do the things we do. That is where the magic lies.

Know where to look, and when to look. There was as much value in the first Axiom as there was in this Axiom. The order of learning is both important and inconsequential at the same time. It is a paradox that you solve to achieve complete mastery.

As we wrap up this 100th Axiom I leave you with the thought that this is not the end, this is just the beginning. You can easily start over with the first Axiom and continue the journey again. However, we must move forward, and I will do so with a slight format change to this website...
