Ouroborus shows us that creation and destruction are inextricably linked. We tend to think that creation as merely good, destruction merely bad, but in reality they are different facets of the same process. Acts of creation impart destruction, and destruction gives way for creation. The key of the symbol, is that in nature, they are balanced, and one feeds the other.
Are we, as humans, conscious enough in our acts of creation so that the destruction we leave behind as a result is balanced and imparts more life?
