I love collaborating with my sweetheart. he made this walnut shrine where I burned spirals, and then included a Buddha & chrysocolla matchbox shrine.
all of our shrines are dedicated to the liberation & harmonious development of all beings.
Carl Jung once said that, 'One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.' When I first read this, my reaction was a mental protestation. It seemed to strike at the root of my faith in Amida, the ultimate Being of Unhindered Light. It felt like a rebuke, an insult even. But then after this initial ire had waned, I gave it more thought.
Jung's quote is a reminder to me that any being of light is inseparable from our own True Self. It is an admonition not to hold solely to a dualistic recognition of Amida, as an entity 'out there.' Rather we must make the 'darkness conscious' by acknowledging the sleeping Amida within us all. This realisation of Ultimate Oneness is Awakening, Enlightenment.

Oh hey, Buddha! There is a Buddhist temple just down the street from me. There are beautiful shrines and sooo many statues. I'm looking forward to visiting again soon for one of their Saturday morning meditations.
