About us

We are a group of enthusiastic people who believe in changing the world – which is an inside work. We believe that if we reconnect with our inner creative side, we can explore the symbols in our own life that holds meaning for us.

This blog provides inspiration and guidance on topics such as symbolic thinking, self growth, and connecting with your soul. The goal is to help you expand your awareness, connect with your soul, and grow into your true potential.

Whether you’re looking for information on symbolism or ways to improve your personal development, this site has something for you.

We like to learn

By learning, we can develop our abilities, and pursue our passions in order to earn peace in our soul.

Learning helps us to adapt to changes and to develop the resilience necessary to thrive in a constantly changing world.

We like to teach

Teaching allows us to inspire and motivate others to pursue their interests.

By teaching, we hope we can help to build a better society, and to prepare the next generation to meet the challenges.

Why it matters

We believe learning and experiencing is the way to know ourselves, to push the boundaries of our abilities, and to become the best versions of ourselves.

That is how we can make a positive difference in the world.

Our core values

We like symbolism

While some consider symbolism to be a complicated literary device, it can actually be found in many everyday objects. Symbols can be things, animals, colors, or plants like trees which are often used in literature and art to add depth to the piece.

A symbol represents something else by association or resemblance, such as a red octagon representing “stop” when you drive.

Teaching everyday symbolism can be a fun way to get my readers engaged deeper with arts, poems, literature.

We like Silence

Sitting silently for hours. Do you like it?

Silence is the absence of noise. It can also refer to a state of stillness without any activity but silence can also be a psychological state.

Silence of the soul is a term that is often used to refer to a state of inner peace, stillness, and tranquility.

When your soul is silent, it is free from the distractions of the mental noise of the mind. That constant buzzing and the all-time fear ofthe real world – if you know what I mean.

This state of soul silence is often associated with spiritual enlightenment and a deeper connection to one’s true self. Some may add the Universe or God – it depends on what you believe in.

We like Balance

Balance is a state of stability which also can refer to more abstract concepts, such as the balance of our soul or the balance of nature in our world.

In Chinese philosophy, the concept of yin and yang refers to the dual nature of all things and the balance between the two different forces. The balance between yin and yang is important for maintaining harmony in the natural world and in our inner world as well.

This balance is never static, but is constantly in flux, giving rise to all forms of change and development.
