Okay, y'all, this has caught my attention and so I feel the need to speak.
Perhaps the plot shall thicken a bit as I will be coming from a different perspective...but still the same it seems.
Recently, in meditations, I was shown a symbol of a circle having a triangle above it and a triangle below it, making a sort of geometric hourglass
shape. The circle, I was told, let's say that represents people. The bottom triangle, point up, is the incoming of energy, the connection to the
earth, the foundation. The top triangle, point down, is the connection with the ineffable, communication with god. The circle, us, we are the focal
point for the energy of the connection. The symbol fits in very well with my homebrew Kundalini.
Then I was told, you know, it's not enough to say that we are all represented by such a symbol. The key is, the symbols are not laid out next to one
another...they actually overlap. The overlap is our inherent connection with one another while we are also rooted into the world. So we are connected
with one another while also being connected individually and through one another to nature (or call it what ye will).
As above, so below, indeed!
On another note, the connection of several of these symbols makes a chain not unlike the one you've talked about. It's not a coincidence, I was
told, that if you give this chain a bit of a twist it becomes a double-helix.
Either way, it seems this is a symbol of continuity and completion.
For me, I know it's my next step along my path. I'm in the midst of a particular mediation exploring this overlap between things. Since I'm in
amongst the trees I can't yet rightly see the forest...so it'll be a while before I can elaborate more.
It's been a long, hard road, but I've learned to give my faith over to the process. The details don't matter nearly as much as the path
itself...what it stands for, what it means, and what happens through and around it. We're all on our paths, one way or another ( ;p ), and we ought
to embrace that fact.
Maintain vigilance, definitely, but don't let details get in the way. Which is to say, stop and smell the roses but don't forget to take in the
entire garden as well.
Okay...I hope my rambling has helped out a bit.
Take care, all!
