Live Oak Acorn — Grunge Art By kenne
The acorn is so rich in symbolism. For some, it represents knowledge, the knowledge of growing and harvesting food, which encompasses the knowledge of sustainability. By using the acorn as a fetish whereby one can focus on nature, developing a better understanding of nature and life.
From mythology to psychologist James Hillman’s “acorn theory” much is written on the power of the acorn. Hillman believes that every individual holds his or her potential inside himself or herself from birth, just as the acorn already holds the pattern for the oak tree. We are able to actualize our inner energy through the choices and actions we take much like an acorn turns into a mighty oak tree.
Whether his theory is correct or not, what a perfect time, as we begin the year 2016 to look inside at the images of our inner soul and begin to explore rather than explain what we see. By doing so, we will be better able to take on life’s new challenges.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
