#577 #symbols and #reminders are all around us as things we surround ourselves with. We may even disclose aspects of our identity through them. I’ve worn a cross in the past to remind me to think before I speak, to avoid reacting. This particular #celticcross has a circle around the intersection to symbolise the eternal love of God. The vertical stem serves as a reminder to look up to #heaven for #wisdom, whilst the horizontal arms are about finding #balance and taking care in those daily interactions. It also serves as a reminder of Jesus’ death on the cross. Do these reminders really help to shape our #behaviours in the moment? Should we be seeking to control our reactions, or should we allow greater #authenticity? would people get hurt if we were more reactionary?
