This scene draws reference to a future representation of myself offering a gift to everyone, incarnated as ONE divine being.
My gift includes my artistic tools, portrayed as a black sword and transparent shield. The sword and shield are illustrations of my vision to own a digital monitor pen & tablet (although an IntuosPro pen & tablet would be a great start ). Also, my time (hour glass), devotion (depicted as me bending my knee and lowering my head), and love (green chakra flower) are all included as part of the offering.
I am giving my most precious possession to God/Gaia/Jah/Eywa/Surya, or however one feels most comfortable referring to the Most High/Creator of everything, incarnated as Mother Nature or Ma’at. Everyone is special to me, so in retrospect, I am really giving my most prized possession to everyone/everything that harbors a soul/life, including plants, animals, people, the Earth and even myself, because it is a part of my belief that we are all connected to ONE living source. Or to view it from a more scientific perspective, everything in its original state is energy (oneness), and for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Therefore, every deed creates a ripple effect throughout personal and/or social reality, whether it be positive or negative.
So to conclude, I am giving my most precious possession (myself) to the Source of all life, incarnated as a human Goddess, so that I can create a positive wave throughout humanity, the Earth, and also myself. It may be a small difference yes, but have you ever thrown a pebble into a still pond?
