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!

Morning Wake-up!!
Roll up your sleeves, flash those eyes.
Set your intention...guided by
synchronicity and wonderful
surprise. ~ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: November 4, 2005


Purple giraffes make me laugh, 
zany though they are.
Imagine the fun of them
 climbing from rung to rung,
and then, peering way down below
 them, oogling us all from afar.

The Daily Mandala: November 3, 2005



The song of morning light thrills my heart, transforming darkness into joy.
All is well and beautiful.
All is peace and praise...
for the still, small voice that remembers,
for the love that stirs a kindness,
for the grace that walks beside me,
through the woods and fields to home. 
~ ATB ~

Enchanted pathways beckon me in the summer sun. Rainbow light flickers happy heart tunes as I skip merrily in tune to my destination. ~ ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: November 1, 2005





 I follow the crooked road with joy and laughter, singing as I walk. With each jaunty step, I embrace the journey. I anticipate the wonder around each corner, over each hill, across each river. I love my crooked road. I follow where it leads, exploring its magic and possibilities. ~ ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: October 31, 2005



 Life is an amazing journey of colors, patterns, weavings...creating a matrix of astounding 
richness and beauty. Each pathway intersects with another. Each knot conjures up memories of lessons learned.  Still...in center...the light of life is a beacon burning steady in its brilliance. ~ ATB ~

Green screen filters, shimmers in waves my thoughts, skimming, skittering, lightly drifting over my blue hyacinth mood. ~ ATB ~
