I love finding hidden meanings in everyday things.
In this case, it has to do with a simple car logo, specifically the one belonging to the Mercedes.
I’ve always liked the name Mercedes because it means “merciful”, a characteristic I immediately associate with God.
On top of that, the Mercedes logo looks similar to the Celtic triquetra or trinity-knot, which is spiritually symbolic for me as well. I have long seen it as more representative of God than even the traditional cross would be.
So, while most would see the logo as a symbol of material affluence, I’m busy coming at it from a totally different angle. I know, I know ... I can be such a flake!
Well, another layer of meaning made itself evident to me the other day as I was gazing at the logo on a Mercedes in front of me in traffic. I noticed that, in a basic geometric sort of way, the logo resembled (as the trinity-knot would also do) two hands put together in the Namaste position.
Now the logo has yet another level of significance that helps keep my mind on my sweet Lord.
