Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
St Vigean's stone
Entanglement is symbolically related to both the Great Work and Destiny as well as symbols like the Gordian knot. It is also closely linked with the concept of Fate.
In effect, the part one is to play in the Great Work, the route, the complexity of the path and the almost incomprehensible complexity of all the links in place to make sure the plan is carried through is seen as a tangled interwoven mass into which we become trapped incapable of extricating ourselves unless we follow the path of our destiny and complete the challenge.
There are knots that form the ‘knotty problems’ and if the entanglement is in vegetation we may see thorns and briars – ‘thorny problems’.
George Bain - Book of Kells
