Greenfield Counselling Centre Philosophy
Our Greenfield logo contains a spiral, representing a symbol of change, and reminding us of our evolving journey in life. The Spiral represents our consciousness accepting the turnings and changes of life as it evolves. The acceptance of change is one of the greatest freedoms our minds can experience, putting consciousness in the present moment where the power of creation is condensed. Using the spiral symbol assures we are reminded of our inward and outward evolution, a balanced and centred stated of mind.
Symbolic Implications of the Spiral
- Evolution and holistic growth
- Letting go, surrender, release
- Awareness of the one within the context of the whole
- Connectivity and union with cosmic energies
- Revolutions of time, stars, planets and the way of natural progress
"The human mind always makes progress, but it is a
progress made in spirals."
