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.


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 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: June 30, 2005

With the softness of sunset glow, I relax gently into the quiet flow and serene resonance of a tender daydream. There is a power in the music that radiates from this heart center. I'm embraced by the love that weaves together this delicate, yet tensile structure. It holds me, and captures my soul within it. ~ ATB

The Daily Mandala: June 29, 2005

 Over narrow ancient pathways, I wander in the canyons of time. Stark, sacred, solemn, sandstone steps lead to arches of eternity. I marvel at the intricacies of earth and water, carving out that moment, including mine. ~ ATB

The Daily Mandala: June 28, 2005

 Energized by the light, I realize the power and brilliant potential existing within the framework of creating something step-by-step, line-by-line. Where there was light, there becomes even more light, when I choose to keep on keeping on. ~ ATB

 Spinning fairytale magic, my  dream mandala transports me to lands faraway and sets me down in the middle of a new adventure of discovery. ~ ATB

The Daily Mandala: June 26, 2005

 No matter what's happening in my life - no matter which steps I take - I'll find my way to the top of the mountain. I'll see the stars in the shadow of the sun. I'll reach for them - always. I love trying out different paths on the journey. I know that I'll come full circle - that the essence of my purpose is contained in all that is. ~ ATB

The Daily Mandala: June 24, 2005

 Fields of flowers, ocean blue, sky clouds passing, blending hues of sunlit patches... bands of scarlet, buttercup, rose, lavender green... growing gardens designing dreams. ~ ATB
