"The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light."
I would like to revisit this photo from May 2011. This was shot in Matsushima about 1.5 months after the tsunami hit when I first visited the devastated coast of Tohoku. At the time I had no idea what I was looking for - perhaps a sign of hope.
As 2012, has rolled around, I came to a realization about certain things. The events that have led me to this point in my life are starting to make sense, like a connecting of dots or piecing together a huge puzzle; synchronicity if you will.
I think everyone who feels a little lost or confused in this world has to dig deep and look inward within themselves . For it is when only they look within themselves will they find the answers in life and the true meaning of our existence in the cosmic universe. I used to think spirituality and interconnectivity is a whole bunch of made up lies but I'm starting to realise that each and every one of us , human, animal, plant, earth and ocean share a pulse with the rest of the Universe. We are but sentient beings.
I feel 2012 will be the start of the year which will signify a great personal change within myself but not only that , within society, the economy and more importantly our collective conscious and awareness. We will come to a self-realisation of the many truths in this world which has been suppressed from humankind due to the powers that be. I see light in the dark and this photo makes a lot more sense now that I revisit it.
Perhaps many of you might not know what I'm talking about but this consciousness that is shifting around the world, I am starting to feel myself and I'm sure many of you will do so in the near future. For now, happy 2012. ;)
What does the pine cone signify?
