A cross cultures and throughout history, the rainbow has imparted feelings of awe, happiness and otherworldliness to its observers. While it has long been a symbol of hope, social change, pride and peace, its sweet profusion of colours which stretches endlessly through the sky seems to denote the simple essence of joy.

“A SYMBOL OF SEXUAL LIBERATION, A PASSAGE FOR IRIS, A MESSENGER BETWEEN HEAVEN AND EARTH, GODS AND HUMANITY.”
Manga by Linnea Kataja
A symbol of sexual liberation, a passage for Iris, a messenger between heaven and Earth, Gods and humanity. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, the seven chakras, from root to crown, the rege- nerate spiritual person, who has lived out the path of enlightenment! The glowing band honours everything endless, it embodies abundan- ce of happiness and joy!
For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness, now that‘s a fact!
Myths and physics flow together. We strive for the gold at the end, not discouraged by the fact that the rainbow isn‘t a bow but a circle. Although science can now explain what it historically couldn‘t, the rain- bow is an optical illusion, a reflection of the sun seen through thousands of raindrops, it can‘t be solely a meteorological phenomenon; the multicoloured arc on the sky has a divine touch to it! Signifying the end of hard times, it resonates with something deep inside us, its light stands as a promise of hope and fun and enlightenment, that is not only for us to absorb but also to spread and pass on to others. Ins- tead of mourning the fact that there is no end of the rainbow let‘s cherish and celebrate its endless potentials. Just as the rainbow is end- less so can the energy it activates and channels through us be!
