The Hourglass Crucible


Explanation: The hourglass with the sands of time passing through represents an individual's life. He or she thinks only in terms of him or herself until the 'haze' clears and awareness develops. The awareness is that all are experiencing the passing of time. Furthermore, the transience of the physical life is represented by the 'dunes,' that are continually swept back into the Source (the sea) of Life. The 'hourglass crucibles' are the life forces that shape our experiences. There is also the symbolism of the sand coming from the Source and returning to the Source. Do you "get it?"
