Posting the full production of this for everyone to access here.
If we are to look at the Olympic opening and closing ceremony, with the lighting, and reigniting of the flame - this allowed the Olympic flame to be raised to stand on pyramid steps. We are reminded of the Sphynx and this being the source of all knowledge. The flame lit by the Sun is a reminder of the Holy Spirit on earth. The energy of the Olympic Spirit is felt within our being.
There was a time not so long ago, when people were paralysed or had some phyiscal ailment, even with the loss of limbs, too many people were ready to give up on the person. The person with physical limitations often pick up on this. Many people have given up instead of realising we are more than our physical body.
The strength of our spirit is strong. When we are 'on the floor' something keeps us going, something is pushing us to have another try. When we witness the most influential teachers show us that no matter what, we can still try, this inspires us to keep going. You are not seeing the most influential people sitting in any high office or political stage. The people who are the inspirational teachers and leaders have overcome all odds and pave the way with new pathways and new challenges. Celebrate being surivors.
The love, unity, acceptance, togetherness, help, sharing, giving and recieving, the warmth and affection between people internationally is to be celebrated and seen as possible because it happens between people who value life.
There is a story to these productions - a story to understand and to be understood through the symbolism. Just in the openinging scene 'intuitively' I am reminded of the Hagia Sophia Cathedral in Constantinople, now Istambul. The Church of Holy Wisdom.
Spiritual enlightenment is being shared again with people.
Keep an open mind and then you will see what is happening.
Peace, love and best wishes
