170. Rainbow – Colour Conclusions

rainbow

One of my favourite films is The Wizard of Oz. I loved it as a child, and waited eagerly for Dorothy’s world to change from black and white to full Technicolor. In some ways, I feel that this is how God changes our sight when we start to practise contemplation. Things become richer, brighter, fuller. I struggle now to process even a tiny bit of the loveliness I see all around me. Colour is a quality that evokes emotions, memories, connections all over the place. Each one contains a myriad of hues, and the spectrum could be divided ad infinitum, and its colours mixed into thousands of shades, as the paint catalogues constantly sell us, with their exotic sounding names.

Colour is how God has painted the universe, and I don’t know about you, but it never ceases to make my heart leap.

Next we shall be looking at the power of imagination in our seeing.

140. Indoor Rainbow (Light 13)

God’s promises hold fast indoors as well as in the heavens, and his spectrum of love is both clearly divisible into the named colours we are so familiar with, and yet so full of nuances and gradation, that all of the wavelengths are inseparably necessary in creating the whole.
