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: August 26, 2005



My gentle garden summer encircles my heart with lavender lace...with grace...with blueberry song...with raspberry wine...making all things beautiful in its time. ~ ATB

The Daily Mandala: August 25, 2005


Feeling miffed, a wee bit prickly...
and a whole lot snarly? Zeroing in on center, 
find the source that radiates the love to forgive,
 to quiet your jangled nerves, to allow peace 
to flow from the inside out to all you meet. ~ ATB

Holy spirit in the vortex rainbow field,
 swirls a vision of promise,
 where possibilities abound 
and all my dreams are found. ~ ATB

The Daily Mandala: August 23, 2005



Multitasking...
needing unmasking...
the layers that loop over, around and under my soul. There is a star there, somewhere. 
When I relax into the center,
 I feel the healing power that soothes...
the balm that balances and makes me whole.

The Daily Mandala: August 22, 2005








 My wise self tunes in
 and listens to the voice it hears. 
My wise self sees clearly
 the pattern of my dream. 
My wise self  feels
 the pulse of my heart's desire. 
My wise self knows 
its eternal power.

The Daily Mandala: August 21, 2005





 In the silence of the universe, all the world's a stage, all my heart is an arena. I'm in the center of this universe. I'm happiest when I'm aware and trust the ripple effect of my creation. What's expressed on this stage becomes my legacy. The beauty is in knowing that I am being me. The silence becomes a welcoming container for that symphony. ~ ATB

The Daily Mandala: August 20, 2005



 Visions of summer, seaside dreams, soft sand beneath my feet. Seashells surfing the tsunami waves come as gifts for my spirit. I reach down to pluck them up from the foam, contemplating the music of angels and the beauty of this, my earth home. ~ ATB
