Our Eternal Nature

 

our eternal nature

When I saw this tree trunk, I saw immediately the figure 8, or the eternal symbol. Even in its brokenness (cut off limbs), it spoke to me of our eternal nature, something which exists even when our body perishes.

“There is an eternal landscape, a geography of the soul; we search for its outlines all our lives.”—Josephine Hart

Becoming Whole

 

The middle stone reminds me about becoming whole. Qualities within myself that I would rather disown, the shards, can be observed, embraced and studied, then transformed. The broken parts are still me. Disowning these parts would be rejecting myself, leaving big holes in me. The broken parts need to be transformed and glued back into myself with love. Well, it is not easy…requires being mindful and looking deeply, having compassion and following the path of transformation.
