The Sacred Fire Ring represents the fire and the light that we carry in us from the moment G-d breathed the breath of life into us. In Scriptures, fire is mentioned multiple times. One of the greatest examples of this is portrayed in the desert when the Israelites were lead by G-d from Egypt to the promised land. In the desert, G-d protected the Israelites by providing them with a cloud during the day, and the pillar of fire at night. This was not simply to help them to see the way, but also to protect them against predators. But, G-d was the fire and also in the fire; exactly like in the burning bush.
