Om means different things to different people. Atman, the interior spirit, soul, ultimate reality, truth. No matter how you slice its meaning the uttering is holy. It touches on the sacred like a sunrise.
This sign was found in Missouri; a random encounter along a country road.
Are you on the lookout for a brush with the sacred in your life? During this season?
We passed this sign during at night, during rainstorm. We zoomed right past it and the thought of taking a picture of it just would not let go. We had been talking about driving back through this backroad on the way home during the daylight so we could enjoy more of the landscape. So we planned the route back. I reflected on what such a picture meant to me. Om means different things to different people. For some it’s just a sound but I think it gets at something deeper; deeper soul, deeper spirit, deeper reality. It’s that simple thought and sound that opens the reality of the Universe wide open if you sit with it.
