What religion you were brought up with is not important at this point in time. And whether you are still practicing today or not, is not important either. What should be significant at this point in time is that, each to their own, you are all seeking some form of spiritual sustenance or upliftment. And if you are able to examine your conscience right now and openly acknowledge or affirm that you are not, then you must excuse the bold suggestion that you try and do so. Take any form of spiritual wall art, for instance.
The eyes gaze. The mind wonders. There are lingering thoughts. Thinking of things. Troubled times. Dreaming of better things to come. So many different emotions are conjured up through the subconscious exercise of viewing spiritual wall art. Go and visit any Catholic or Orthodox Church today and you will see countless numbers of icons displayed on the churches’ walls and in different corners.
They are there for a reason. Two of the more salient reasons that could be given is that it offers worshippers an opportunity to express reverence and humility towards their creators, and as reminders of their spiritual history and heritage. Of course, there are other religions or cults that believe that such generous displays are not necessary and even blasphemous. But this point could be argued.
Again, the mind has a tendency to wonder, in good times and in bad times. And with so much noise and business about these days it remains far too easy for the human mind to become distracted and lose its focus. Surely, it can be argued, that the prominent or strategic display of any form of spiritual art is going to help bring that mind back to its centered focus.
