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: September 15, 2005



Cheerfully I greet the fresh garden morning,
 feeling light, open and true to my heart. 
The warm sunlight softly expands it. 
The pale blue sky envelops it.
The sweet fragrance of summer holds it. 
My heart begins the day 
in the peace and beauty of serenity.

The Daily Mandala: September 14, 2005





Chasing down a dream, 
the song with words I'm meant to sing. 
Flying like a dragonfly, I sputter;
 I turn to face the music of the spheres,
 as it imprints its tune on mine. 
Each corner, each direction, each window 
lends a hand in time.
 I hover at each vision. I like what I see.
 I realize I have a mission, 
in my own eternity.

The Daily Mandala: September 13, 2005

Full moon landscape mirrors my dreams, manifesting magic to harmonize
 my expression of  wonder and beauty
 in all aspects of my life.
 Full moonlight falls serenely,
 beckoning me to reflection and discovery 
of  the heart of the night.

The Daily Mandala: September 12, 2005









Hello there! What a bright morning it can be when I positively smile to be positively me. No matter the tasks on my list to be done. I have to remember to make it all fun. ~ ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: September 11, 2005



I know that I know...
 the circle of life begins and ends with me.
 My ideas take shape in the blink of an eye.
 It's what I do with them
 that makes the difference. 
I smile when I think of the power of an idea.
 When its time has come, then the circle of life 
allows it in, to spring into creation. 
I know that  I know...
 because of my action,
 its legacy will continue on.

The Daily Mandala: September 10, 2005





Resurrecting the dream resurrects me.
The dream refreshes and renews me,
 my purpose and my vision. 
Its spirit of truth encircles and embraces me.
 I see once again the light on my path
 glowing with beauty,
 intensity and transparency.

The Daily Mandala: September 9, 2005




 Beginning again, I can see the calm, bright center where I rest my soul in illuminated peace. From there I see in all directions; and the paths to integrate radiate the pattern I must create. Gathering in the threads, my tapestry becomes complete.
