Rejection of beliefs

“Symbols are powerful because they are the visible signs of invisible realities.” – Saint Augustine

seeking of refuge

from iconoclasts,

destruction looms by

impulse-ridden folk

perhaps, tangible icons

destined to fall, but

the spiritual fervor

exists eternal

Reena’s Xploration Challenge #214

Let us grapple with the word ICONOCLASM and its meaning.

Iconoclasm is a breaking of established rules or destruction of accepted beliefs.

  1. Good point – the fervor is eternal and does not depend on the icons.

  2. You gave a whole new perspective to iconoclasm.

  3. Interesting point of view Eugi.

  4. I think it’s within us all. I believe that’s why some people eagerly search for the true path with many continuing looking and trying this or or that. Nicely done!

  5. Well done as always.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend, Eugenia. Big hug. ♥

  6. Thank you God for not allowing the Iconoclasts to find and destroy the miraculous relic known as the Shroud of Turin of which God did preserve for the seekers of Truth today. Although the scoffers out there still try to belittle it.

  7. Great take, Eugi. Very well written.

  8. Thank you, Indira.

  10. Your piece speaks to these times very well, Eugenia!

  11. This Idea probably needs to be balanced with
    Iconodulism – Opposite of the belief in, participation in, or sanction of destroying religious icons and other symbols or monuments, usually with religious or political motives
    We as a society are probably leaning to strongly towards the worship of Icons. Thank you for bringing up the thought
