Well, you can see I don’t use pics as my avatar, but symbols to represent me. There is more than one reason for that, but the main one is that I value my privacy. Nobody on the internet knows what I look like, what I sound like, or my real name. The various sites I’m on all have different symbols and names, with the exception of Twitter, which is the smae as here
Another reason is I’m not photo orientated. I have none of myself, or of anybody else who figured in my life, or any thing connected with my life, though I do have some of other people I know online, helps stopping me mix them up. Don’t know why I’m not photo orientated, perhaps its because I try to live in the present and photos are of the past?
All the symbols I use are spiritualy related. If you don’t know the one I use here, itsthat of the OM, the universal energy of peace/balance. The symbol is a way of gaining access to that intangible energy, if you know how to use it. Its use is to facilitate the focusing on the energy for those who are ‘students’ of disiplines which include the OM. Its important to realise that the symbol is NOT the energy, merely a gateway to it. Those with some degree of mastery don’t need the symbol, they can access the energy directly.
