This memory stands out because of the immediate realization, that my younger self has, that relates fire with danger. I have always had a healthy respect for fire because of this experience. It would take on a whole new meaning for me some 30 years later, as I would come to experience the fire of the Kundalini. In the Bible, the fire is the Holy Spirit (Kundalini).
Fire may burn with joy or anger, it may offer life-giving light and heat or destruction. The element of fire has great power for forging will and determination. It is our inner light as well as a living symbol of the Divine fire that burns in every soul. It represents our passions, compulsion, creativity, and motivation. ~www.buildingbeautifulsouls.com
