Red Dragon is your Conscious Self – who you are and who you are becoming.” “A picture says more than a thousand words”
When the painting is finished it shows its “real colours”
Here My Red Dragon popped up, A trip to google search to find the meaning of Dragon , Red Dragon and Red ,.
An interesting reflexion.
Red has a strong symbolic nature owing to its natural manifestation in blood and fire. Depending on the culture and time period, red may represent anger, aggression, high speed, danger, love, purity, joy, celebration, fertility, warmth, rebirth, death, wounds, or protection.
The colour red has also always been connected to magic and force.
The Red Dragon is a mythological entity which exists in all times and cultures. The Dragon can be viewed as a winged serpent ( can I remind you that in Genesis, the serpent is portrayed as a deceptive creature or trickster, who promotes as good what God had forbidden, and shows particular cunning in its deception.)From the perspective of the history of religions the serpent is a symbol of the earth and the underworld. The serpent, or snake, is one of the oldest and most widespread mythological symbols. The word is derived from Latin serpens, a crawling animal or snake. Snakes have been associated with some of the oldest rituals known to humankind and represent dual expression of good and evil.
Once dreamed about a snake or a serpent, I don’t have to tell you what it means , people who dreamed about snakes are in real need of the meaning behind it because the dream will leave a feeling behind that you simply have to investigate the meaning of it.
The eagle is a symbol of heaven. The dragon is a unity of these two fundamental principles. The Dragon is a picture of the Hermetic principle “That which is below is like that which is above and that which is above is like that which is below”.
Historically, serpents and snakes represent fertility or a creative life force. As snakes shed their skin through sloughing, they are symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing. Furthermore it can mean eternity and continual renewal of life. It can represent sexual desire and passion, which goes perfectly together with the colour red.
In China the dragon is a symbol of Tao, that which is beyond all terms and all polarities (Yin and Yang) but also is the force behind all. The Dragon represents the unknown and the hidden energy in men and in nature. The word dragon comes from the Greek verb derkein which means “to see”. The Dragon is the principle of clear seeing: the ability to see things in a new light as they really are, beyond all illusions. A confirmation of the unconsciousness . A confirmation , hey what I saw was right, I am not mistaken.
For this reason the dragon has great wisdom and power in the myths. The wisdom of the dragon is symbolized by the treasure it guards or the pearl that the dragon carries in his mouth. To find this wisdom and knowledge man must search in her inner aspects and in the unknown.
In Yoga the dragon is called the Kundalini, the force that is hidden inside man. The Draconian path strives to make this unconscious force and knowledge conscious. “A picture says more than a thousand words” and the symbol of the dragon and the myths about it carries information about how the unconscious can become conscious and how man can evolve..
The red dragon is a symbol of primal forces that the magician can awake and use in her magical work. In the Bible the red dragon is connected to Satan and the fallen angels. These are mythologically giving man the knowledge and the force to reach divinity.
So we have the earth, the underworld and the heavens all wrapped up in one painting, is there more ?,.
All symbols have meanings they are vibrations of the frequencies which shapes our destiny .
Well little Red Dragon I wonder which wall you will enrich with your powers .
Enough with the rain ! Need the sun the heat and the sea to dive in ,.
A small reminder ..
The existence , the physical universe is basically playful.
There is no necessity for it whatsoever , it isn’t going anywhere .
It doesn’t have a destination that it ought to arrive at .
But it is best understood by analogy with music,
because music as an art form, is essentially playful.
We say you play the piano, you don’t ‘work ‘ the piano.
Why? Music differs from, say, travel,
when you travel you are trying to get somewhere.
In music , though, one doesn’t make the end of the composition,
if so, the best conductors would be those who played fastest.
And there would be composers who only wrote finales
people would go to a concert just to hear one crackling chord
because that is the end.
Same way with dancing , You don’t aim at a particular spot in the room
because that is where you will arrive.
The whole point of dancing is the dance!
But we don’t see that as something brought by our education
into our every day conduct.
We have a system of schooling which gives a completely different impression.
It is all graded and what we do is put the child into the corridor
of this grade system with a kind of come on get it !
And you go to kindergarten and that is a great thing because,
when you finish that you get into first grade.
And the come on first grade leads to second grade and so on.
And then you get out of grade school you got high school.
And it is revving up, the thing is coming, then you are going to go to College.
And then graduate school , and when you are through with graduate school,
you go out to join the world.
Then you get into some racket where you are selling insurance,
and they have got that quota to make , and you are gonna make that.
And all the time that “thing” is coming .
It is coming , it is coming . that great “thing”
The success you are working for.
Then when you wake up one day about 40 years old and you say:
My god , I have arrived , I am there. Here it is.
And you don’t feel very different from what you have always felt.
Look at the people who live to retire, to put those savings away.
And then when they are 65 they don’t have any energy left.
Because we simply cheated ourselves the whole way down the line.
We thought of life by analogy with a journey ,with a pilgrimage,
Which had a serious purpose at the end,
and the thing was to get to that end !
Success, or whatever it is, or maybe heaven after you are dead.
But we missed the point the whole way along…
It was a musical thing , and you were supposed to sing, or to dance.
While the music was being played….
Caught by the light !
Ongoing rain keep on smiling.
God I just wish to say to all those Facebook posts, ( Linkdin is slowly following so to them as well even though I like that Linkdin is starting to get a bit more trendy in the posting ) , really you have nothing better to post ?
They keep on talking about the hair of D.Trump , the wife , the lies or comments , all those things which are not important at all.
The grief over Obama leaving ( I wish I could scroll back 8 years to those same president related posts and compare! )
If Donald Trump will do well,?
Who knows one thing is for sure this guy can sit on his couch and do nothing at all for the rest of his life!,.
As we say in Dutch ” he has all his chickens on the dry ground”.
But no he choose to be President of the United States, far from a 9 to 5 job!
He is where he is because he is what he is .
Deal with it!
And all of you clever people posting your disliking, your bad backed up opinions , decorated with this new lining up of little faces translating the presidents in emoticons !!!!
Really?? We became so clever we can not even write a simple word? Or we have to back up our stories with little drawings otherwise we do not understand?!,.
Are we all infantile?
Look how stupid it looks, is this really the language we are teaching our kids ?, to communicate with icons of thumbs up, little sunny faces , faces of bad laughing clowns ?
Oh please correct me when I am wrong because I feel the last on this planet who doesn’t use them and maybe I am the stupid one ,,is possible!??I hope not because then I have a lot of “emoticons language” catching up to do !
I just left my “parents ski trip” whats app group , I was confused if I landed accidentally in the kids group!
Smileys, little airplanes , snowflakes, all those hands squeezed together, 5 of them to make your self more clear? ..At the airport I understood I had left the parents group , there was a delay, but hey I don’t speak “the” language !
Oh Help, I landed in another Jungle, Please Mr New President continue to support the art world because I don’t like your plans that much, and please do something about our new generation and their communication skills !
Thank you so much in advance , by the way I loved the outfit of your wife !
