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 29, 2005




Simple treasures exist just behind the looking glass, just beyond the window pane, just beneath the surface of visibility. In my consciousness, I see them. Peeling back the magic tape, I glimpse the possibility...that they, the beautiful treasures, will find me when I'm ready. ~ ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: October 28, 2005





The power of the light beyond the window flows into me, strengthening my resolve. I'm energized and ready to run out the door, welcoming the morning sunrise. There's much to do; and the time is now...this day... to be busy building dreams.  ~ ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: October 27, 2005



Amazing mazes always find me. Each one challenges my navigational ability...to find new ways of thinking, to see past the obstacles before me, to remember the heart of patience within me and so to discover the key to open each door. I trust that the passageway I take is always the right one. It will lead me to where I need to be. ~ ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: October 26, 2005


Dizzily dazzling doodling,
 swirling layer upon layer in the vortex 
of dreamy-eyed artists...
creating, fantasizing, drawing up designs 
for dancing into future possibility.

The Daily Mandala: October 25, 2005


Life is:
 A circus of fun under the full moon.
A zany, jazzy amusement park. 
A playground of magic beauty whirling free.
 It's dancing, skipping, songbird singing...
Life's a lark and ~ ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: October 24, 2005



Weaving wisdom, winding through windows of opportunity, possibility, serendipity...wandering around perplexity, squaring off, at last I see the fundamental aspects of me. ~ ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: October 23, 2005




Out of the deep, out of the blue-green waters, swirling dreams flow spiraling, streaming into my mind and heart. From the depths come treasures of creative spirit. I see clear and true. I see me; I'm free.
