This art of the serpent crushing the eagle symbolizes courage being crushed. Do not be afraid to go into the unknown.
I ponder the biblical story of how Adam was banned from Eden. What fear Adam must have felt leaving the protection of that vital, life giving garden only to enter into a wild world where the potential of death could be experienced by him at any moment.
Imagine the implications his decisions had upon his delicate mind and heart being manifold. Surely, he must have felt shame, fear, wonder, anger at himself for getting banished, and for disappointing God. He too must have felt a surge of loss, this disconnection from being unplugged from the source of all creation. Perhaps he left at night when a billion stars covered the sky like a wondrous cinema of whirling lights, and though he knew Eden must remain inviolate there was something pure and simple, and joyous waiting ahead for him.
Those who are afraid of eternity might rest their hopes upon what seems fixed pillars for pavilions that will eventually crumble. Build worthy houses, not from things but out of men.
Do not love this world so much that you become timid, terrified of success terrified of failure, of life and love and even death. Do not let the idea of freedom turn your legs to stone.
Take action and live without regret. Think about eternity and not about losing something upon this earth. In some moment of weakness every one of us, man and woman alike, has tattooed upon our heart the symbol of our sadness which summed up our greatest failure, a dying Fall.
Every man who knows the snake knows the sword, fire, banishment and a gate that shut forever. He is only damned if he doesn’t choose to control his destiny with his experiences and knowledge.
Go into the world without paralysis and live fully, despite doubts and feelings of being alone and unprotected. There is nothing back there for you so commit yourself fully to what is ahead and a legacy of building up men, raising families, those things greater than yourself. Foist your eyes not on the world but on the night sky. You are not alone. Just like the stars in the sky there are billions of men in this world just like you.
So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life (Genesis 3:24).
Here is art about life, death, God, virtue and honor. Take action. Live deliberately. Live vitally. The Saint Factory is for those who want to make a difference in this world. Here we honor heroes.
