Today is Flag Day.
So declared by Woodrow Wilson
100 years ago.
For on June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress
adopted the first American flag by passing a resolution saying,
“Resolved, That the flag of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes,
alternate red and white;
that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field,
representing a new constellation.”
And few know...
that the colors red, white, and blue/black
are Alchemical colors
and symbolize transformation.
Carl Jung spoke of these colors including a forth- yellow,
as the symbols of individuation,
the merging of ego and self into an enlightened being...
No where else in history
could we use some of that intent of transformation
Some leap in consciousness,
in peace, in love and acceptance of all our differences
so that we can move forward into this beautiful world that we share
and regain faith in the goodness of our being human...
Leo and Rusty
proudly wore their flag scarves,
gifts from dear friends this past week.
I missed posting about their birthday,
which was this past May 29th. They are now five years old.
Where does the time go...
Into the red, white, and blue
"a new constellation..."
