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.”

These pages spotlight areas of growth and experiences not otherwise provided for in the structure of this website. Currently under the spotlight are Out of My MindMy Latest Revelation, and Good Deeds.   

Out of My Mind documents various creative projects and/or processes as they initiate in my unconscious and are brought to consciousness. It is a behind-the-scenes demonstration of how the creative process can bring joy to our soul if we sit still long enough and allow it to work within us. The first installment is the drawing of a mandala. 

My Latest Revelation documents aha moments as they occur to me. The first installment recounts the day I realized that I had omitted the cross from the design of this website, and how this unconscious omission seemed to manifest itself in the cross in my mandala. The second installment recounts the day I realized that the original subtitle of my memoir, “Crossing the Bridge to Self,” has a symbolic meaning far greater than I had initially imagined and prompted me to scratch “In the Night of Day” and revert to my original title.

Helping Hand documents inexpensive ways we can give back to the Universe, which was prompted when I was earnestly praying for help, for guidance. But instead of guiding me or helping me concerning my own little pickle, I learned instead how we can help others.
