Divine Knowledge: Seeking Wisdom - A Labor of Love

Posted by Carol Corneliuson on

Greetings!

Blessings to you and yours! This Akiane painting seemed appropriate for Labor Day and we would love to hear your thoughts about "Divine Knowledge"; a parable about seeking wisdom from 11 year old Akiane ...

Labor of Love

Seeking Divine Knowledge

Those who thirst for heavenly wisdom or seek the real face of God might agree that the divine quest is truly a labor of love. As we celebrate Labor Day we recognize that there are many types of labor ...each with unique life lessons and results.

At age 11 Akiane painted the vision she titled "Divine Knowledge"

"Only from the deep coal tunnels white diamonds come But only by the light they are recognized"

This is Akiane's story of the search for divine knowledge represented in the painting Divine Knowledge. Akiane says:

"The young sculptor represents our civilization.... His youth shows that our civilization is still immature. The sculptor is chiseling a huge heap of coal in order to find the diamond representing divine knowledge.

The sculptor ignores the pain, strain, hardship and temptation of everything surrounding him. All he focuses on is on finding this particular diamond, and he knows that if he chisels long enough through the black coal layers, representing human knowledge, he will finally see the diamond of the Supreme Knowledge.

In the background of a cave the contrast of ice and hot rocks represent the world of contrasts we live in.

The melted ice that formed a narrow stream flowing through, symbolizes humanity's thirst for knowledge that can be quenched only by the light of love. Akiane
