I'm starting to understand why so many spiritual paths regard dreads with high esteem. I see my emotions being so tied to these little knots, and seeing how my reactions to them also reflect how I react in the "outside world," so to speak.
I started this post to complain about my loops and how I HATE them, they drive me batty. Really they do. The last few days I have been waking up not exciting thinking "oh cool, I wonder what my dreads are doing now?" But instead "Oh GOD, I wonder what those little punks are doing now." They are only a little over a month old but I feel like I am raising teenagers that once they find out something annoys me it's the coolest thing in the world. lol.
Then a little voice whispered "just let it go,"... but... but... but.. they are so loopy! Zigg Zaggy, you just don't understand!! "Really? Is it the loops and shrinkage that annoy you or the lack of control?" said the voice. I was left in silence. Are the loops what are annoying or the fact that I have to wait for my perfect dreads? Or accepting that my perfect dreads by nature might be absolutely chaotic?
I'm not too sure if I am looking for reassurance that my crazy hair will settle down in to "beautiful" uniform dreads one day, preferably soon.... or if I am just looking for someone to tell me to shut up and enjoy the ride. Who would have thought that a hair style would have such profound effects on me?
I've always thought of myself as a spiritual person but to be blown away by the wisdom of my hair is very humbling to say the least.
