This is one of those strange images that began as squiggly lines to see what would emerge. Sometimes when these are complete, I find I really like the image.
What I was reminded of when I saw this (and this is my biologist side coming out) is when a neuron releases a neurotransmitter (think serotonin or acetylcholine) into a synapse. Often times, the excess neurotransmitter released is taken back into a neuron so the components of the neurotransmitter can be recycled to form new neurotransmitter.
And this is what I thought when I saw this image. I saw my heart (at the top) and with its falling apart components being reabsorbed into the large, spiritual Heart (the Heart of God) in blue.
And I thought about the components of my heart being recycled and renewed in order that my Heart may be symbolically recycled and released again.
So often we go through difficult times, wondering how we are to hold the pieces of our Hearts together. Perhaps this image speaks to a new way of looking at this situation. The heart is “broken” and reabsorbed into the love of God, so the Heart can be recycled into state of new-ness, ready to be released to the world. 🙂
