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: February 23. 2006




 There...in the center
there is a garden...
within my sphere
it's the place
where I create,
where I envision,
where I play, work, dream.
Welcome to my garden.
Walk with me along the pathways.
Be inspired to see the beauty.

The Daily Mandala: February 22, 2006


 Hello there! 
Bright suns light the night,
energizing my smiling heart.
Creative spirit abounds
in this happy sphere,
revealing new and
beautiful possibilities.

The Daily Mandala: February 21, 2006







 Aquamarine pools 
draw me to each corner
of my sphere. I love
to explore them, 
to swim among the islands.

Each holds mysteries, 
each brings new discoveries.
Each are a part of me.

The Daily Mandala: February 20, 2006




 Stepping stones or stumbling blocks...
I prefer to see stepping stones,
which,  when viewed from above,
reveal the beauty of the pattern,
the mosaic of a purposeful
life journey. ~ ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: February 19 2006




Sun at my center,
sun on my pathways,
sun in the fields and flowers...
Light is with me, 
light  goes before me,
light surrounds me
in every hour.
~ ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: February 18, 2006







Dancing themes:
So many possibilities, 
brilliant ideas,
which one do I choose? 
Pick one; and run
with it. Create a big 
dream with it. 
Most of all...
have fun! 
~ ATB ~

I'm peeking through the garden gate,
where lovely lavender lilacs wait;
their fragrance drifts in dusky light,
as day's bright beauty turns to night.
