Clearmind-Thank you for your thoughts about this subject. I agree with you that most people are afraid to quiet their mind in fear of finding
something deeper there, something that they feel will detatch them from all they know and believe, but in reality it can only complete what we know on
the surface..really people I have spoken to are just flat out afraid to let their mind deepen and grow and most of them also believe it's pointless
as well..but it's not and they are missing out on all that life has to offer IMO..
Aztec-Welcome to ATS! Interesting and very explicit post! You think every object is symbolic of something to a persons life path? I won't argue or
disagree..but I haven't progressed this far yet, if ever. I feel it's those certain symbols that define a person from the begining. A symbol(s) that
can be associated with oneself, whether it be known or not, just certain things that pop up in a persons life over the years to remind or prepare them
for the eventual completeion of oneself?? This is kind of one of my theories about it anyway. For instance if I see a blue feather it holds a great
amount of meaning for me, it is very rare, I only have a few in my feather collection, but it sends some kind of signal to my mind or soul that
compells me to pick it up. I have not figured out the significance yet, but I know in due time I will.
That is so interesting about the being you communicate with! And how you need those symbols to even communicate and understand eachother at all..this
proves great importance of symbology with respect to understanding the otherwise *inexpressible* being..thank you for sharing this here. I hope you
return or atleast bump into your obvious wisdom elsewhere
Billybob-Thank you for contributing! And thank you for liking this thread. This is probably *the* most important thing I've given to ATS,as far as my
life is concerned..this is a very deep and meaningful subject I generally hold close and sacred inside. I agree we are frequent beings that express
and think in waves, our brain, our mind, our bodies and our soul all are communication devices that can be utilized as means of communication to
ourselves and others. I certainly believe we all hold the key to full understanding ourselves within one of the above communication
tools..unfortunately tapping into the one that has the greatest amount of significance is very difficult and some clearly have little patience for
that. It's just *easier* to stick with the most prominent mean of communication, less dangers, less confusion and most importantly less depth or
m0rbid-Amazing that some thoughts/experiences can be compared to an acid trip, isn't it? Our minds are SO powerful, we are capable of our own
personal acid mind trip excluding the drug!! Far out!
Also thank you for enjoying this thread and leaving your thoughts. I'm glad others can
validate the importance of symbology and life together..and I'm most pleased noone has called me crazy thus far! You are right, some symbols
immediately grab us or call out to us..and then some are far more complex therefore have to sneak by and leave a subtle hint of it's appearance and
meaning for later understanding. Both forms or all forms are important, but the latter to me, are the ones that hold our stories and meanings on
levels that we aren't always aware even exist until we recognize these symbols over long periods of time and learn possible meanings and/or
connections to our very soul of existance..
Once again, thank you all so much for posting your thoughts here! All of the contributions are fabulous and saved inside my heart for later reviewing
and understanding of symbols I'm faced with in my own life, which leave me sometimes perplexed as to their reasoning and/or connection to
myself..Everything we've said together creates the bigger picture of our lives through time and unfoldings..the keys may not always seem to belong or
fit..but I'm certain they will when we open up enough for them to fit perfectly. Some issues with symbology aren't always positive..obviously there
are things buried inside us all that would be difficult to face if we aren't fully prepared. So pushing the understandings can have adverse affects
on us, mind, body and soul..the mind is a wonderful thing, but it can shed darkness as quick as light into our brain that could cause severe pain and
traumas. Awareness though and understanding that not everything in life is dancing in rose gardens can help us *to* face these dark harbouring
supressed dealings without taking our spirit away, so to speak..
