To me the symbol of the cross is a symbol for balance rather that a symbol for Christianity. The vertical line represents the directive principle, the horizontal line represents the receptive principle. My guides say, the cross is the symbol of the enlightened individual, and embodying balance is key.
We live in a culture that values productivity more than receptivity and yet one without the other creates imbalance individually and collectively. It’s very common for me to observe people rushing toward their goals, not having enough time to relate or hold a door open for another person. A quality life must include both being receptive and directive.
