LEA18 - Existence in Balance

Jennifer May Carlucci says, "Existence in Balance will eventually consist of three major parts."

"The first part is Terra Forma and is almost complete. I say 'almost' because the main structure is finished, but some atmospheric touches need to be added. 4 Heart-shaped platforms surround 2 hands that will hold and release the ICY GLOBE (soon to be transformed into Planet Earth). They represent the surrounding LOVE of which all things are created. Each platform contains a heart at the bottom and one at the top. Captured in between the hearts are several vases holding Calla Lilies.

Historically, this flower symbolizes purity, holiness and faithfulness. It’s commonly depicted in images of the Virgin Mary. Calla Lilies are also symbols of rebirth and resurrection. They are connected to the resurrection of Jesus because they bloom around Easter and are shaped like trumpets which symbolize triumph.

Keeping this in mind, we are looking at the birth of our glorious Earth. It begins its triumphant journey upwards from the non-physical ether to the physical Universe. It is a picture of purity brought into existence."

At every instant and from every side, resounds the call of Love:
We are going to sky, who wants to come with us?
We have gone to heaven, we have been the friends of the angels,
And now we will go back there, for there is our country.
We are higher than heaven, more noble than the angels:
Why not go beyond them? Our goal is the Supreme Majesty.
What has the fine pearl to do with the world of dust?
Why have you come down here? Take your baggage back. What is this place?
Luck is with us, to us is the sacrifice!...
Like the birds of the sea, men come from the ocean--the ocean of the soul.
Like the birds of the sea, men come from the ocean--the ocean of the soul.
How could this bird, born from that sea, make his dwelling here?
No, we are the pearls from the bosom of the sea, it is there that we dwell:
Otherwise how could the wave succeed to the wave that comes from the soul?
The wave named 'Am I not your Lord' has come, it has broken the vessel of the body;
And when the vessel is broken, the vision comes back, and the union with Him.

Eva de Vitray-Meyerovitch, 'Rumi and Sufism' trans. Simone Fattal
