How vast this world is, —
A tiny sprout shoots up!
Why am I here? It calls out!
Meager and alone; yet
God willed it to BE!

Meaning of the color PURPLE, & LIFE

 

 

Immediately when viewing this photo, I was reminded of not only the path pictured here and how it is “life” itself—our journey to our goal, heaven.

The violet/purple flowers also are symbolic. One of the colors of the rainbow but also the meaning of the color itself.  Violet– The last glow of the rainbow is a mix of red and blue. It is considered the highest element of spirituality.

The path surrounded by purple/violet flowers, the color, meaning those who seek the purpose of life again our pathway. The color itself represents royalty, which is why in the Bible, we see the soldiers put on His body, (Jesus Christ)  to mock Him, a purple robe. Why because purple/violet again representing — Priesthood, Kingship, Royalty, mediator, wealth.

In my opinion, this photo speaks of life, the path, the flowers, the colors. Our experience as the path is broader at the beginning and gets narrower as we travel along, a life of happiness but sorrow too!

Dark tones of violet are associated with sorrow. Deeper shades of violet or purple denote high spiritual mastery.
