I come from orthodoxe background, my grandmother was always going to the church, and as a child, I used to go with her. I was very impressed by the icons, specially the serbian, greek, and russian orthodoxe icons. Then i heard all the stories about icons making miracles and creating an inner light. In icons it’s all about the internal journey of enlightenment, in a state of pure consciousness you produce light and project it to the outside world. The light comes from inside.
