On Sundays I watch Super Soul Sunday on OWN network. The guest this Sunday was Karen Armstrong. She is a former nun and a leading authority on religion and spirituality. Armstrong has a memoir entitled The Spiral Staircase. Spiral is used as a metaphor for life. Often we think we’re not progressing in life, but actually we’re spiralling upwards.
In Wake Up World’s “Ancient Spirals – What do they mean?” The Spiral is a sacred symbol that reminds us of our evolving journey in life. When used as a personal talisman, the Spiral helps consciousness to accept the turnings and changes of life as it evolves. The acceptance of change is one of the greatest freedoms a human can experience, putting consciousness in the present moment where the power of creation is condensed. On a larger scale, using this symbol assures all beings are reminded of their inward and outward evolution, a balanced and centred state of mind. On water, it carries the power to flow and change.
Essentially this week’s post is just a reminder that even when we think we’re going in circles or worse yet just standing still we’re steadily moving towards or hopes and dreams.
Until next Sunday,
