First the chemo, then the recovery, now the narrow escape post. Daniele Bossari on Instagram reassures his fans with a post in which he shows a tarot card: “The first Monday of September is the day when many start their business again. But for me, the return to the simple daily routine, today takes on a meaning of rebirth”.
Bossari speaks of rebirth by showing the card of the hanging in the foreground and, in the background, him. “To explain what happened to me, I use the twelfth arcanum of the tarot: ‘The Hanged Man’, because it perfectly represents the condition in which I found myself. It appeared to me in a dream on a spring night, while I was trying to make sense of the physical suffering that I was experiencing during the months of chemo and radiotherapy, to treat a tumor in the throat. I am alive and I can tell you about it “.
And then he continues: “In the impossibility of escaping the pain, I had to accept it. Hanging by the thread of fate, but with total faith in medical science, I went through the storm. While the doctors treated my body, I tried to cure my soul putting into practice those teachings dictated by all the books read, the spiritual texts, the meditations. The inner search had to find a meaning to what was happening to me. ‘The hanged one’ is he who empties himself to become a recipient of luminous forces. This disease represented for me a very powerful initiatory form, forcing me to disintegrate my ego, crumbling all certainty, allowing me to revise the scale of values: what are the real priorities? The first is love “.
