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 3, 2005





The frequency of me is beginning to BE. 
Integrating, connecting, tuning in 
to the sacred circle within. 
The sound is uproarious, the vision is glorious.
I'm loving this station: 
this sound and light chorus that's
joyfully playing waves through my heart.
 Each day is a new one. I'm thankful to be ONE 
with all... and ALL things beautiful 
are one with me. ~ ATB

The Daily Mandala: August 2, 2005



 Fire up your core, encore! And again, and again, and again! Be bold, be savvy, be amazingly, brilliantly true to your center. Circle the wagons; and live from your source. The cross is beautiful. Power up its healing energy for all things possible. Now is the time to be you. ~ ATB

The Daily Mandala: August 1, 2005





Memories...
eclipses of my mind...seep into my heart.
 Colorfully arrayed around it, 
they drip endlessly...
 teasing me with their meaning. 
The edges blur, the colors fade...
but the essence remains. 
I need but to corral the flow
 of these droplets, 
filling my container with the love,
 the light, the sparkle that they bring.

The Daily Mandala: July 31, 2005





 I'm walking to my dream destination. My heart sees with many eyes, the vision that waits for me.   It carries the tools of Spirit I know to take along. I'm gathering them up. They're so wonderfully, colorfully, beautifully me. ~ ATB

Birth of creative spirit welcomes my fanciful, wonderful ideas...circulating in my mind, connecting dot- to-painted-dot on the canvas of my life.~ ATB

The Daily Mandala: July 29, 2005



 There's a spirit in me that's struggling to fly. 
I lift my wings to the wind, like a feathered bird to the sky. 
I gather my strength from the turmoil inside; 
and I see it's the wisdom within me, 
crying to break free...no longer to hide.

The Daily Mandala: July 28, 2005


The heart of intrigue finds me glowing hot with a fiery desire to know the truth. Underneath the self-imposed grating, I discover the clarity that comes with the realization of this core energy lighting me from within...
if only I'd have the courage to stoke this firelight and follow where the sparks fly. ~ ATB
