The symbol is a unalome, a representation of the journey to reach enlightenment. The path starts in the centre of the spiral, and as you continue up or down this path you are wandering, becoming more conscious of your surroundings. When you reach the top of the symbol (the straight line), you have reached enlightenment. Everyone's path is full of twists and turns, life isn't just one straight line ✨#unalome #unalometattoo

Unalome + Lotus, "our life's path has many twists and turns, and with our journey to enlightenment we have the opportunity through our struggles to find our path... This often requires great strength and Devine intervention but if we continue to fight, our light can blossom through the mud"
