Edward Steichen 'Lotus' and Spirits search for itself


Edward Steichen 'Lotus' 1915

words from Parabola Magazine
“The struggle to know who I am, in truth and in spirit, is the spiritual quest. The movement in myself from the mask to the face, from the personality to the person, from the performing actor to the ruler of the inner chamber, is the spiritual journey,” wrote Ravi Ravindra in our Fall 2004 issue: The Seeker. "

These words remind me of the daily practice of unlayering what we put on the day before to be in the world, and then need to 'deconstruct' on a regular basis to find that deeper inner self again. And even though there is so much resistance, and one has to discipline oneself to do this it, it is the most 
nourishing and deeply restorative practice available, no matter what form it takes (eg Yoga, meditation,
prayer, journal writing etc etc).
