What’s in a snail; a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

(No, Will Shakespeare did not write these words; though they mean the same as he intended.

Snails, as most creatures, hold a key for us; a key to unlock a door within.

And what is the key the snail holds? We’ll tell you. The key the snail holds is the key to that place within where knowing lies. That’s right. The key the snail holds is the key to that place within where all things are known; all things are true. And what is meant by ‘all things are known’ and ‘all things are true’? We’ll tell you.

You, dear heart; this is what is meant by all things known/all things true. Indeed, dear one; the snail holds the key to that part of you within; that part of you that understands all things; understands all that is good and true.

Do you think that you do not understand all things, dear heart? Yes? No? Indeed, dear one; we all know, deep within, all things. It takes a willingness to remember; a willingness to put aside doubt. A willingness to put aside those things that hinder us from exposing that part of ourselves that is true. And what is true, my friend. We’ll tell you.

You, dear heart; you. Yes, dear friend; you are true, deep within where all is known.

In time, dear one; yes; in time you will discover this for yourself, and we shall witness great rejoicing; indeed, we will.)

  1. The coil of a snail’s shell has always fascinated me. It’s seems true that a coil is where you find the design of equilibrium, the key to balance, and balance is very much the innate understanding of all things, isn’t it? What a delightful key!

    I absolutely burst out laughing with joy when I saw this post, Carolyn. Thank you so much for sharing it! ♥

  2. Again you paired us well. We hold the best part inside us. When we look we see our truth. I guess that’s what a snail knows for his shell would be nothing without his little snaily body.

  3. WOW, WOW, WOW, Carolyn!!!! This is exactly the sort of thing I have been reflecting on recently (see my latest blog post if you don’t believe me!). So great to read these words! Synchronicity 🙂 x

    1. Wonderful to read your post – synchronicity abounding..!
      I love meditation; it was my salvation many years ago, and continues to be the salve of healing in a fast paced world. We definitely have a theme happening.. ;). 😉

  4. Years ago when I was stressed, trying to find answers, someone said “Stop running around & fretting. Sit down, relax and close your eyes. Now look inside your heart, and you will find your answers.”
    As time goes by, sometimes I forget to remember so many things I already know.
    The snail will now always be my reminder not to forget to unlock the gates to my heart wherein I can truly be honest with myself. Great post! 🙂 ❤

    1. Wonderful, Resa…
      Some reflections stay with me, reminding me of certain knowledge. I know this one will become one of those for me, too.
      *Big Smile*
