The inspiration🦋~ Last week during Easter, a friend showed me this artwork by Fyllyungoo at Replants. He held it up and said "look it's your journey". The painting spoke to me at many different levels.
The journey back to the eternal light of our own soul is our spiritual path. When we release identification with who we think we are, or, who we think we were meant to be, we can be free and authentic. In yoga philosophy this is reffered to as death of the ego; dissolving attachment to our possessions, profession, physical appearance, relationships and roles we play; releasing subconcious patterns, belief systems and emotions until we are an empty vessel through which the light of our own soul can shine brightly.
The cockatoo in the painting, a spiritual bird in Aboriginal culture, represents the flight and freedom of our soul-self to merge with the eternal light of spirit. Death and dying are part of this journey; representing a symbolic death, not a physical death.
Life can be ruthless to those with a fierce desire to be free, to be light, to be enlightened; many loose the very things or people that are most important to them as that's were the identification and attachment happened; you simply belief you cannot live without ~ that.
The hardship forces you to let go deeply, only to discover, life goes on, you live on, and you were never that. Through the pain of detachment and surrender, you will eventually rebirth, like a phoenix who rises from the ashes, more real, more authentic, more soul, more light, more you.
Becoming the light of your own soul is a journey, not a destination😇
