The Eternal Fire
Fire has been one of the main elements in any civilisation of the past. It was used metaphorically as an esoteric term in stories, allegories, secret teachings and texts but also, as a matter of life or death.
Zoroaster’s followers in ancient Persia kept and still keep the sacred fire burning at their fire temples
Prometheus, in the myth, brought the fire of the Greek Gods down to humanity to bless them with knowledge
Ancient Egyptians worshipped Ra and Incas worshipped Inti as their sun gods because they had the power to give life to every living being
The symbolic attributes of fire are the passion or creativity of individuals, spark for something new and expression of ideas
Daoists and Hermeticists used the element of fire to create change and trasformation in the alchemical processes both on the physical and metaphysical levels
Keep the fire burning!
Let me know what fire means to you and how you keep it alive
