New design

A while back I ordered a black zip hoodie from Cafe Press that has an Om design on it. It seemed consistent with my emphasis on Kali and on the challenging, transformative, and mysterious aspects of Shiva, etc.--in a sense, an attempt to move beyond the particularities of the Amma spiritual organization toward a more direct and intuitive contemplation of the archetypal background of those aspects of that tradition that most appealed to me.

After having resumed Islamic practices earlier this year, I had been thinking of doing something similar with a Hu design, but I hadn't been able to come up with anything that really worked. Last night I did a new search at Cafe Press and found a hoodie with the design that is now my profile image here. I like the way in which this design focuses on mystery, light/darkness, etc., even a certain degree of psychedelia.

Along with choosing this as a profile image, I decided to pick another theme for my journal. The green theme seemed to go with the earlier Hu image, but I felt that this black and white Hu design required something more basic.
