QA253 QUESTION: I have been wondering all summer what is the inner meaning of finding a snake in the sanctuary?
ANSWER: The meaning can be seen on two different levels. On one level, your community has neglected this project and has ceased giving it its best energy and love. This is regrettable, since your sanctuary is such an important place in your Center.
On another level, the snake should not be seen as something evil, an ill omen. It is one of the many beautiful creations that God has given to this world. It represents the life movement. It represents wisdom and healing.
