MEMOIR LOGO CONCEPT: The aleph and a Sufi mystic inspired my creation and design of the syzygy logo, which I initially based on the symbolism of the yin and yang.

But the concept expanded when I first saw the aleph in Judith Cornell’s    
Mandala Healing Kit, My inexplicable attraction to it led me to incorporate it into my logo before I knew what it meant. 

I later read that the “Aleph (the first letter of the sacred Hebrew alphabet) embodies the primordial, divine potential of the universe. ... Aleph contains all the universe’s potential and all of its emptiness   simultaneously. Aleph represents a dynamic process of movement from unity to diversity and back to unity,” Jennifer Judelsohn, Songs of Creation.

And the  mystic poet Rumi inspired me to use the fire and water concept after I read The  Question.  Here is an excerpt:  

“The presence is there in front of me. A fire on the left, a lovely stream on the right.

One group walks toward the fire, into the fire. Another toward the sweet flowing water.

No one knows which are blessed and which are not.

Whoever walks into the fire appears suddenly in the stream. 

A head goes under water, and that head pokes out of the fire.”

LOTUS LOGO: In spiritual and religious literature, “the lotus is a symbol for the macrocosm and the microcosm, the universe and man. The lotus represents the divinity of the cosmos as well as the divinity of man. 

The lotus is the center of the infinite, omnipresent consciousness which connects with the consciousness of the universe. Through the intuition, one of man’s divine gifts, the spiritual student can see the infinite, omnipresent consciousness as the lotus flower within himself.”

“Brahma was born from a lotus, a beautiful white flower standing in the mud, teaching that regardless of origin one can be free and pure. He performs the role of Prajapati or Ishvara ... by creating the universe many eras ago. Brahma is the lord of scholarship and the four Vedas came from his mouth.” 
According to Hindu legend, all men were once Gods. But they had so abused their divinity that Brahma, the Master of the Gods, decided to take it away from them and hide it. To help him find the best hiding place, Brahma called a council of the gods for advice. 
       “Let’s bury it deep in the earth,” said one god. 
       “No,” Brahma said. “That will not do because man will dig up the earth and find it.”
       “In that case,” said another god, “Let’s plunge man’s divinity into the deepest ocean.” 
       “No,” said Brahma. “Sooner or later man will explore the depths of the oceans and will find it.”
       “We could hide it atop the highest mountain” said yet another.
       “That won’t do either,” Brahma said. “Man will eventually climb every mountain and will no doubt find it and take up their divinity once again.” 
       The Brahma thought long and hard.
       “This is what we will do with man’s divinity,” he said at last. “We will hide it in the deepest part of man himself, because that is the last place he will ever think to look.”
       Ever since, man has been circling the earth, exploring, digging, diving, and climbing in search of something which can only be found within. ♂ ♀
