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: October 31, 2009



Enclosed in a circle of gently furling angel wings,
I feel goodness and mercy following me, and I sense
my own wings beginning to unfurl.

I feel the transparency of my heart
as I open it softly like a flower, revealing my
authentic self, seeing through to the magnificent
center and beholding the beauty if the rose.

Squaring the circle becomes boldly apparent,
as I seek balance in all aspects of my life
and a strong foundational pattern within.

Happy talk! Thinking of the song from South Pacific,
and of my first blog at www.livingstontalk.com today.
Black and white. Words on the page.
Talkin' happy talk. Connections.
And there's so much to talk about!
Thanks, Henry!

Summer green changing to autumn hues...today my heart feels the peace
of leaves fluttering softly and the murmur of the dove song...I walk softly, too, and hum the peaceful tune...

Quirky Query:
With a playful heart, I step into my quirky, creative spirit.
Smiling, with anticipation, I query myself...

that inventive, innovative inner self...
and I'm surprised by the insights I discover.

Like a flock of migrating birds,
or a jet streaking across the blue autumn sky,
I move forward with clear focus toward my destination.
The circle of my life shimmers and changes.
I change and grow along with it,
secure in the knowledge that the road or the flight path will always be revealed before me.

The Daily Mandala: October 17, 2009




Life seems very complex at times, and I wonder if I'll manage all the things on my plate.
But I know there is a reason for everything; 
and there is a pattern, a plan, a purpose...
and I keep on keeping on.

Serendipity follows me as I learn to be gentle with myself and  let go of my fears. Trusting that the way will be shown, I watch for signs fluttering into my awareness along the path. I stop for a moment, and take note of them.

The Daily Mandala: October 9, 2009



Today I envision the focal points of my goals and dreams, and I create an action plan. While I may feel a sense of urgency about reaching the targets...I see divine light reflected over all. I realize that, enveloped by this light, these dreams and goals will manifest at the right time for me and for all who may connected to me and my dreams.

Grounding myself today on the solid foundation of truth... of being who I am... I climb the stairs of my lighthouse, gaze through the porthole...and, scanning the horizon, I know the life preserver is there. It's there for me; and it's there for me to cast out to anyone I see who might be sailing their own troubled waters.The Daily Mandala: October 1, 2009
