The Spiritual Meaning of Snow
- Water is a form of knowledge. Water descending from a high place to a lower place represents knowledge flowing from a higher reality down to mundane life. Rain (water in liquid form) is a transmission of knowledge that is harder to grasp. Ice (water in solid form) is more compact and easy to grasp. These two forms of precipitation symbolize the way that knowledge moves from higher reality to mundane life. Snow is a hybrid of the two forms of water.
- Snow is, in mystical terms, an intermediary between higher reality and mundane life.
- Snow is likened to a gentle and kind version of education, one that emphasizes purity of spirit.
