Paradise is for those who do what they are told
Reaching for the serpent of wisdom and knowledge the seeker awakens the suppressed aspects of the self. Fall from paradise.
The awakened individual becomes alert to all the previously suppressed potentials. We wake up through escaping from the prison of religion and societies values.
At the bottom left is our deepest sense of being. It is awakening from sleep symbolized by the figure’s necklace that is Kephera, the Ancient Egyptian Sun at Night, that forces the Sun to rise at dawn. On the bottom right of the work we can see the sleeper is guarded by the Goat of Mendes, symbolic of facing and overcoming our fears. Challenge is opportunity.
Anesidora, she who sends up gifts, is a title of the Greek Pandora. It is she who releases man’s opportunities, the challenges we need to overcome, from the vase given to her by the Gods.
She Enters Her Dream And Takes Back Her Mask Of Power
What we need we find within.
