The theme this week reminded me of the sculptures in the Prayer Garden
by local artist Barry Eisenhart. Each sculpture symbolizes one of the universal
powers (abilities). Below are 9 of the 12, most of which were captured back in January.
Life – Based on a wave, the circle of life is fragile, represented by the thin, delicate point of connection. The protective cradle holds two circles, representing cells that form life.
Order – These elements represent the sequential order and inherent structure of life, showing the beauty of balance
Will – The ability to choose between two options. The center represents a strong inner force
Zeal – This flame represents our ability to ignite passion and enthusiasm.
Imagination – A nutshell breaks open and expands like a tree growing upwards. Ideas are represented by bubbles multiplying — a reminder that all things are possible.
Understanding – A companion to imagination. As we begin to understand ideas, things settle and our focus becomes clearer.
Wisdom – The intertwining represents working through, evaluating, discerning and resolving — finding a pearl of wisdom in our center
Release – Spiraling up and letting go, working through and bringing to the surface things we need to release.
Love – Two hearts are intertwined, signifying eternal harmony and unity
