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: December 20, 2005




 Illumine me Holy Spirit,
allowing the weaving of light and life...
bringing the strands together,
creating a network of wisdom
 and beauty, always...

Water color skies surprise...
I love the beauty of this disguise
seen through the lens of my heart,
 reflecting in my eyes.

The Daily Mandala: December 18, 2005


Love is my signpost along life's road.
Passion is the flower
 in the center of my heart 
as I follow where love leads me. 
Light shows me the way
 on this eternal path.
 Joy is behind me and before me.
I follow my creative spirit 
on this amazing journey.
Peace accompanies me, 
as I discover the simple wonder
 of being me.

The Daily Mandala: December 17, 2005



Life is pink meringue and lemon-lime
sublime...  sweet and tart,
 happy mellow art
when your heart is aligned
in joy... with mine.

The Daily Mandala: December 16, 2005



A swirl of affirmations,
A song of blessings, 
A swell of inspirations,
A spirit stirring
A soul  unfurling.

The Daily Mandala: December 15, 2005



 Ribbons of time,
 swirling an imaginary May pole celebration,
remind me of the passing seasons, 
caught up in the winds of spirit,
yet entwined  in the beauty of eternity.

The Daily Mandala: December 14, 2005



 All things beautiful
 blossoming,  transforming, 
singing:  reverberating
 the colors of love
in my healing garden.
