And dotted in amongst are the mandalas I made for the tag #mondaymandala at Instagram too. If you visit it, you will see a whole host of inspiring ones, both with exotic blooms in faraway climes, and the more subtler smaller petals too, whatever are within reach to those in different places around the world.
Shells, crystals and gems, pinecones, sticks, bark and leaves also feature.
So I wanted to write a bit about mandalas, to go with this, but as I sat to type I started thinking about the circle symbol and its representation of the interconnected ness of life. It made me have the following reflections ...
Who we connect with, when, why, how, and its affects, must be with reason, purpose and meaning.
There are millions of people on earth, why do we find, connect, and form relationships, friendships, or acquaintances with some and not others?
Is this predetermined, do we already know them from life before earth?
Are they part of our story in ways we have forgotten, or hidden in memories from previous times that we can't recall?
It is fascinating to ponder our connections and to see them full of wonder and a touch of the magical like this.
Maybe we appreciate what we have now, but if we also appreciate what might have been before, it adds a further dimension. A respect for the unknown just as much as a gratitude for the known.
It is this love i think, that acts like a magnetising force, and draws to us, and us to them, those people we are met to meet.
It may not be in our awareness, the reasons as to why we connect with certain people but it is surely a fascinating aspect to life, that it can happen when it does, and often in the most perfect of timings. I seek to trust it and thank it,
