Prometheus, Christ, and The Wound – October 2015

This landed in my inbox today and Spirit moves me to share it.  As I was wondering about all the questions that I don’t ask – on purpose – since there are some things I don’t want to know, an article about The Wrath of Gods stuck out.

I have no point to make other than this was significant to me as my “spidey senses” were up as I watched the video. That and someone poking me to post this before I lay down to rest as I am home sick for the day. As I watched the video, it reminded me very much of several things which have been poking me lately. I love the juxtaposition of Christ and Prometheus. All I could hear as I was watching this was, “The wound is where the light enters you.”

There isn’t a link to the video; you’ll need to scroll down the article to find it embedded below. Clever curators over at the Philadelphia Museum of Art!

Love and cookies,

Sarah

    Hey Sarah, I am always excited like a little child when you show up in my reader. I know very little about Christ and even less about Prometheus. But I know about wounds.

    I enjoyed the symmetry in the video. I adore Italy as you know. When a certain part of the Sistine was featured, I was like – I know this piece.: http://litebeing.com/2013/07/04/returning-home-part-ii-italian-cathedrals-updated-edition/

    Wishing you love on this autumnal Friday. LInda

      Awww, thank you. That makes two of us excited like little kids.
      I did really enjoy the symmetry in the video and Spirit has shown me some similar body angles in visions before….not that I know what that means.

      I loved your post. I’ve been feeling a big pull to visit Italy in the past month, specifically Tuscany. Your post images are very moving and VERY motivating.

      Love,
      Sarah

    I enjoyed this, too, Sarah. It speaks to me of connection, and I don’t know much about Prometheus, but after looking him up I see some connection between Prometheus and Christ. Here is a sentence I found, “The name of the elder of these brothers was Prometheus, or Forethought; for he was always thinking of the future and making things ready for what might happen to-morrow, or next week, or next year, or it may be in a hundred years to come.” Prometheus also brought fire to mankind… I didn’t read far enough to figure out how he was wounded, but there is something powerful in these paintings and the bringing forth of their shared meaning I think… You always have your finger on the pulse, my friend!

    Much Love
    Michael

      Hi Michael,
      I always love “seeing” you and your words. I didn’t know too much about Prometheus either and after I saw this, I started seeing art all over with figures in the same pose. I love that he brought fire to mankind. Thank you! I didn’t know that.
      And I’m not sure what pulse my finger is on but thank you. I feel like I never know until 6 months later when I look back. It feels like it kinda works that way here. Haha!

      Much love,
      Sarah
