This is a reflection on my faith and death. Rather than leave you to warp your mind with this I'm going to explain it and let you into the wonderful world that is my mind. You may want to buckle up.
Some of you may already know that I am a Witch. I'm also very deep into yoga and with that the buddhist ideals and philosophies that go with it. Halloween (or Samhain) is a sacred time for those of my ilk. It is a time to focus on transformation, regeneration, honoring of the dead and of course preparing for winter. This is when the wheel turns, it's a new year and everything begins again. This sacred cycle of life and death exists in both buddhism and Wicca and their similar beliefs on death and reincarnation is probably the best example. Every depiction of buddha has him in a pose or asana that has meaning. This is the reclining buddha and it's said to depict the leader on the verge of death. Being we are in October, I am in the mindframe of transformation and regeneration and death is a part of that thought process. Death of old thoughts, old habits and this image is my marriage of the two faiths that comprise my belief system. The depth of field is shallow because it is neither about the past nor the future, it is about the present moment.
