Chapter 6: Hidden Hands

While building the Stone Sanctuary, coincidences seemed to happen far more than one would expect.

Ideas and stones kept falling into place so frequently that it made me feel there were some hidden forces behind the whole endeavor.

I came across Joseph Campbell’s quote from a Bill Moyer’s interview:

I even have the suspicion that has grown on me of invisible hands helping me all the time…  If you follow your bliss and put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living…  I say follow your bliss and don’t be afraid and doors will open.

Inspired by Campbell’s statement, I thought I would make a large hand of stone in tribute to the Hidden Hand of God.

On The next visit to the stone quarry, I suddenly started finding stones that resembled fingers.

After putting the new stones together, it looked more like a Hidden Bear Paw of G.

So it goes.
