All Things Beautiful...Through My Kaleidoscope

Welcome to my page of reflections on the mandala art of Henry Reed. Long ago, I envisioned my writing as viewing life through my looking glass…my kaleidoscope. I love the way the picture changes, with each turn of the scope. Yet, it’s always unique and beautiful. After long enjoying Henry’s mandalas in my daily email, I discovered that, beyond looking at the artwork, I was feeling prompted to write words from my heart regarding what was going on in my life. I began my own daily affirmations, or reflections…and posting them here, beginning in August 2009. ~ Nov. 13, 2011, Henry completed his 7th year -- 2,556 mandala paintings -- thus completing a circle. A new one begins. Hope you'll tune in to watch what develops in this blog space of Henry Reed, SusanGail and ATB ~ It's a journey of intuitive heart.

MANDALA ART BY HENRY REED FROM ARCHIVES OF THE DAILY MANDALA

Note to visitors of All Things Beautiful...

Below you will see my reflections on The Daily Mandala from the archives, beginning with Nov. 13, 2004...progressing gradually onward to Nov. 13, 2007, when Henry concluded his seven-year series. To see the newest mandalas, scroll down the archives...to where I first began the reflections in 2009. So, I've a long way to go before I sleep, in these mandala woods, so lovely, dark and deep!

The Daily Mandala: November 30, 2005



Big smiles, thankful hearts 
tell me that love is boundless 
and the journey endless
but nevertheless, beautiful...
always. ~ ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: November 29, 2005



 Ribbons of hope, strands of love, intertwine through my mind and heart. Beneath the color swirls and flowing twirls, I discover the illumined walkway that keeps me grounded, yet moving me ever onward and upward.

The Daily Mandala: November 28, 2005





 Smiling upside down, sideways, or right-side up, I create a dream each day of magic and fun. I discover my purpose within this playful time, allowing my heart to appreciate the wonder that exists around me.  ~ ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: November 26, 2005



 Embracing autumn, I follow the leaf-strewn path through blazing sunlit woodlands. The warmth of oranges, coppers, golden hues energizes my heart today. Their brilliance brings a lightness to my steps. I walk in awe of nature's beauty, enjoying the season, appreciating this moment of peace. ~ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: November 25, 2005



 Even when I stand in the dusky shadows of twilight, I can see the familiar pattern around me.  The circle of my life remains clearly visible... strong,unbroken, forever linked to all that is, and all that will be. ~ ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: November 24, 2005



 
Bold lines, green times,
 I paint the path I plan to walk. 
To be true to my intention I walk 
mindfully, navigating my way
peacefully...awake, aware and 
listening, allowing Nature to
fill my soul and my heart.
