The gift of life's eternal wisdom!
The cross and loop or circle symbol known as the Ankh has come to be one of the most widely recognized symbols in the world--honored and/or used in rituals by many religions in many cultures around the globe and through time. It gained huge popularity in the 60s when it became an antiestablishment, anti-war symbol, as Lon Milo Duquette points out in his introduction.
The Ankh: Key of Life includes a silver-colored Ankh on a black silken cord and an informative illustrated book about the Ankh's history and meaning plus a plethora of ideas for wearing and using your Ankh in a meaningful way.
If any symbol on earth could hold such power it is certainly the Ankh. It is the consensus among many modern esotericists that the Ankh was designed to be recognized by the ancient eye as a simple sandal strap. This is my favorite theory for it suggests to me the secret that life is a journey each of us must make one step at a time. It's simply a matter of going--a process of voluntary movement--a willed commitment to move on, move up, and become something greater than we now are.
