The Flower

The Flower transmits gifts of wisdom and empowerment from the profound realms of being, consciousness, and enlightenment. As you say yes to total awakeness, the Flower will help you to realize the very source of life, beauty, and love as You.

The image has also been likened to the eye of God, which brings to mind Meister Eckhart’s teaching: “The eye with which I see God is the same with which God sees me. My eye and God’s eye is one eye, and one sight, and one knowledge, and one love.”

Zoom out to see the whole image, then soften your gaze, open wide, and receive.

Origin Story

By Jeff Vander Clute

Over the years I have created quite a few maps of the spiritual domains using a combination of sourcing and meditation. These renderings have helped people to awaken spiritually and activate their gifts of spiritual insight and healing. All the while, I have been aware that such maps are forever incomplete since there is always infinitely more to explore and discover. Charting the subtle terrain of spirit is tricky business.

Eventually I asked to receive a certain type of map – a cosmology – to be revealed with as much accuracy as possible. I had a knowing that it was finally possible to access a representation of Reality that would somehow be comprehensive and flawless in its essence. The quality of perfection would come from the fact that Reality itself was offering the expression as Itself. Importantly, I appreciated that although the cosmology would be a supreme representation of Reality, countless other equally valid representations would always be possible since the Limitless cannot be restricted to a single form. Fortunately, one perfect version is sufficient for the work of enlightening the world.

When I connected with the essence of the “true cosmology” in meditation, I received detailed specifications for a set of concentric polygons that together resemble a flower with seven layers of petals. The number of petals ranges from eight on the outside to infinitely many petals on the inside, which is to say a circle. After some intuitive discernment, I sourced an initial color palette, which turned out to be visually harmonious. After a period of further discernment and settling, I invited Joe Menth – who co-created an immersive film about the universe as well as the logo for Sourcing The Way – to create The Flower.
