True Balance - Crown Chakra
I'm not sure why I picked this pic for this post. I took it the day I finished reading True Balance, while I was online gaming with a friend and took a moment to make tea. From out my kitchen window this was the sight I saw. Whether it is some kind of bizarre sunset or dark clouds in the sky I'm not sure. I found it completely compelling though. Oh, I just re-read that the colour for the chakra is violet fading to white edges - ok, the pic works for that I think!
I think the comparative significance is that after reading this chapter I would say that this chakra is quite closed for me. The quiz I had 8 no's, 2 sometimes and 2 yes's. I also found it quite hard to read or really feel what she was getting at due to the numerous and vastly increased religious references. I feel bad I think I mentioned this in all the chapters recently but it really makes it feel exclusionary to me. So much so that I was barely reading it or taking in the content, more like skimming the surface and searching for something to connect to but it didn't really happen. This chapter is spiritual meaning of life and absolute faith and I guess that is not where I'm at. I definitely found that there were some good suggestions, like searching for a deeper more meaningful connection with yourself - that sounds good idea. Mind you some of the other things such as praying and meditation, not fond of and/or not good at those, and it again assumes a certain religious slant/faith. I believe it really summed it up when she says that its a "shift from me against the world to me as part of the world" (p.230). Maybe one day.
No word associate on this one as no list was there for this chapter.
