In this series of blog posts I’ll dive deeper into the world of my doodles. In this post we’ll take a closer look at doodle #42 in MIRA – Glimpses of Life & Whispers from the Heart…
For doodle #42
An excerpt from the book:
INSPIRATIONAL PROMPT – Snow
“At first it felt impossible to hear whispers from the heart because the wall was so thick.
Slowly the wall became transparent and I learned to trust that there’s more to life than it seemed.
There’s a whole Universe full of possibilities!”
elinap’s musings on the doodle afterwards:
A snow globe in MIRA, symbolizes the world the ego has built, all shiny and pretty, easy to shake up for more mesmerizing action—But oh, it’s also so fragile. The ego didn’t mean the walls to turn into glass.
Originally, they were thicker…
The ego is losing control,
now that Mira is starting to choose Love!
This image is a bit misleading, because in truth of course, the heart is not behind any walls. She’s standing there next to you, patiently waiting for you to take down the walls the ego built. But this is how it felt like when she started to acknowledge the situation, noticing how cold she was, and revealing the ego’s tricks and fake miracles (paper stars hanging on a string glued to the dome) for what they truly are – illusions.
What can you do today to reach out and expand from the world the ego built for you?
