Symbols…

The Crucifix used by Pope John Paul II
From a Buddha statue
Poseidon

What do symbols mean? When you see certain ones, how do you feel? What do you really know about the symbols in our world?

When you see the pitchfork what do you think? The Devil? What about the fact that the pitchfork is a variation of the Trident? Poseidon is often seen with his Trident coming up from the water.

When you think of a holy family, you think of the virgin mother and the baby Christian god, but what about Isis holding Horus?

What about the  Krummkreuz or crooked cross? You may not know it in German but the English name is the Swastika. Do you know that it is found on Buddha statues, used in Native American religions or found in other parts of the world?

These are some of the symbols that we see everyday. The feelings that we feel are influenced by what we see. When you see a rainbow, you often will think of the promise to not flood the world, not the science.

We have made many improvements in the world, but at what cost? People have become so closed there are things that are missed. Open your eyes and see the world for the majesty that is there.
