Perception and necessity of pain

Updated: Feb 18, 2020

I had a conversation with my wonderful sister Piara about a picture she found on the internet on the other day. We, two, had different impressions about it and it triggered my interest if may the picture call out something personal from our unconscious. I ran a pilot test just like a kind of Rorschard-test. I have to add that I am not an expert in Rorschard-test analysis either, but I was very interested in the results.

But... there were others with different kinds of view...

There were the ones claiming that it is the expression of pure love where the man helps the woman finding her way back to Heaven, and again here the feather represent the angel-kind.

It was also claimed that the picture express that love gives wings, where feather representing freedom and
