play and allow your mandala to unfold
I looked outside my lounge room window and it was cold and dreary. Not a day to be going out.
I turned away from the window and was drawn to my grey metal circular shaped kitchen chairs and table. They too felt cold and uninviting.
While standing there, I was drawn to the basket in the corner. My face lit up as I saw the basket full of colourful woolen balls and threads.
Yes, I went with how I felt at that moment and there it was unfolding in front of me. Threads of different colours, sizes and textures were being cut. My fingers were being serenaded to the tune of the various colourful cut pieces. A design was being created. Threads were woven swiftly in and out of the chairs’ metal spikes. I flowed with the happening and noticed that healing was taking place. I felt alive and regenerated.
I glanced again at my creation and realized that my chairs and table became a mandala.
A mandala in motion it was – transforming the grey, harsh environment into a warm, vibrant and loving space.
I looked up and the sun was coming through the glass panes.
A new understanding – the creator and the creation are ONE.
ONE BLISSFUL CONSCIOUSNESS.
