What does this image whisper to your soul?

Light shining from the spirals of a conch. Long before we knew about the double-helix structure of DNA the spiral has spoke to something inside folks. Labyrinths. Spiral stairs. Conches. Even the swastika. It seems to combine the eternity of the circle with movement or growth. And then in this image we add light.

And then there's the conch itself. Confining yet open. Protective. Hard. Beautiful. Mathematical. Maybe we/I need to come out from our/my shell like a butterfly emerging from a chrysalis.

I think the spiral conveys motion in utter stillness. Even a child can draw a spiral, and even that spiral suggests motion. In particular, this picture, suggests waves, ocean, air, and yin and yang.

Before the first word: Silence.
Before the first light: Light.

When you gaze upon an object, you bring blessing to it. For through contemplation, you know that it is absolutely nothing without the divinity that permeates it. By means of this awareness, you draw greater vitality to that object from the divine source of life, since you bind that thing to absolute nothingingness, the origin of all. On the other hand, if you look at that object as a separate thing, by your look that thing is cut off from its divine root and vitality.

Dov Barer of Mezritch (? – 1772)

Endless swirls, turning in, turning out.

Also a reminder of the Golden Ratio.

The light within -- we must give it an opening so that it can be seen by others
