Fire symbolises various things to people and cultures. In the dark hoary past, it provided light and warmth to our ancestors that paved way for human evolution, which is why fire has been a symbol of hope, considered holy, and worshipped in lot of cultures.
I have been drawn towards flame due to it’s inherent mystical quality. I really connect with the characteristic of flame being the dispeller of darkness, not just externally but internally as well. To me the flame conjures much deeper emotion, of something unknown and eternal that is burning deep within each of us.
I firmly believe that kindling the inner flame is the only solution to dispel the darkness of the current existential crisis of the world.
I get overwhelmed with hope as these words of optimism reverberate in my mind.
“ The future of humanity is not dark…human beings will seek and one day realise the inextinguishable flame that remains ever-burning behind the veil of darkness” ~ P.R. Sarkar
