Jakobsweg trail in Tirol / PillerseeTal
The MUSSEL is a symbol for pilgrims and used as a spoon or as a drinking vessel. Lots of mussels have a treasure inside, a pearl. This is only formed if the creature successfully encloses a foreign body. In every life story there are difficulties which has person has to overcome and endure. In retrospect, these difficult situations are often valuable to your life experience. Do I have treasure within myself? (talents, imagination, love, vigour,....)
The STAFF provides support and stability, shows the way, can be used as a means of defence and helps overcome obstacles. Where do I find support in life? (beliefs, family, friends,...) For whom should I be a strong staff? Don't break someone else's staff!
The HUT protects people, their provisions, their honour, their paradigm. You protect your house, your family, flock, values. On the pilgrimage trail of life we fill our everyday bottles with water, and with wine on celebratory days. Yet how do we refuel for life? With friends, family, our job, nature, beliefs and hobbies! Am I careful with natural resources, with the people around me? Be moderate when your pleasure is at the expense of others!
