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 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.

The Daily Mandala: September 8, 2005



 Fruitful seasons sing me memories on the summer breeze...lovingly caressing me in warm thoughts of walking with my friend. Miles and miles past fields and flowers that loom in blooms, we stroll down country roads and paths in parks. Laughter bursts in technicolor conversations, sharing insights heart to heart. ~ ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: September 7, 2005



In my dreams, I fly above the fray, the life I've known on earth is gone. The future becomes the past, the present teases me, the past overwhelms me. As above, so below becomes one in my soul. I dive  to the depths,  the clouds part and I roam the fields and woods and streams. 
I'm free. I'm home.

The Daily Mandala: September 6, 2005


Flowering paths I follow; trails of fragrant thoughts meander through my heart. I catch their whimsical message; I listen; and I know which way to go. I sense the pattern... delicate, intricate,yet formed with incredible power.~ ATB ~

Praying for health and healing of the waterways, the highways, byways and heart-ways of the planet and the diversity of people who call Earth home. ~ ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: September 4, 2005



Discovering the freshness in each new day becomes a soul goal of mine. Waking to the light of dawn brings new possibilities. I'm grateful for the daily transformation, and the serendipity of choices. What new direction may I take? What new paths may I walk? Imagining the beauty, I see clearly ahead of me. ~ ATB

The Daily Mandala: September 3, 2005



Flying carpets transport me in my dreams, to places afar, to wondrous scenes. In my imagination, I float the winds, I sail aloft. High over mountain clouds I fly. Envisioning eagles wings, I soar alongside, engaging eye-to-eye.
